5.5 / 10.0 - Anthem
Feb 19, 2019

Slick flying and gunplay collide with infuriating design choices throughout Anthem. But its biggest problem is a lack of soul – this is a cynical, committee-produced product bereft of any significant creative spark.

7.5 / 10.0 - Kingdom Hearts III
Feb 14, 2019

Often as infuriating as it is entertaining, Kingdom Hearts III bolsters the series’ trademark commitment to nonsense, both for better and for worse.

9 / 10.0 - Metro Exodus
Feb 13, 2019

Slight disappointments aside, Metro Exodus is a fitting continuation of Artyom’s onward journey through the remains of a post-nuclear world. It’s a grim, yet beautiful, mix of open world and linear first person shooting that isn’t afraid to throw challenges at you from beginning to end.

7.5 / 10.0 - FutureGrind
Jan 27, 2019

FutureGrind may not do much to reinvent the genre, but it is an enticing and ludicrously addictive entry into an under-served gaming niche.

7.5 / 10.0 - Pikuniku
Jan 26, 2019

Pikuniku doesn’t do much new with the cutesy indie game formula, but it does present a beguilingly offbeat mood, wrapped around some enticingly colourful visuals and snappy gameplay that doesn’t tax the brain.

The Hong Kong Massacre doesn’t offer much at all in terms of story and has a few rough edges, but as a to-the-point strategic gore-fest, it delivers the basic, addictive goods for the 4-5 hours it’ll probably last you.

8 / 10.0 - A Fisherman's Tale
Jan 22, 2019

It’s clear that more could’ve been done with this incredible premise, but what’s here is nevertheless a brilliantly paced and impeccably designed puzzler that’s easily one of the most inventive and memorable PSVR titles to date.

Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown is a stubbornly old-fashioned title in some areas and to that end does little to roll out the red carpet for newbies, but if you can stomach some of its more peculiar design choices, there is a tenaciously addictive and entertaining game underneath.

Despite its limitations and drawbacks, Tales of Vesperia: Definitive Edition remains one of the best stories in the genre and comes highly recommended if you’ve never experienced it before.

7 / 10.0 - Fallout 76
Dec 12, 2018

There is no denying the game has a long way to go before it feels complete, though the world they have created here is a great point to work from.

8 / 10.0 - Battlefield V
Nov 24, 2018

Battlefield V is the most fun I’ve had on a Battlefield game since the wonderful Battlefield: Bad Company series. After the initial frustration of adjusting to a different game after 2 years of Battlefield 1, it quickly became addictive, enjoyable chaos.

Nov 14, 2018

Whether you’re a hardcore fan of the franchise or looking to dip your toe in its rich sandbox gameplay for the first time, it certainly scratches that itch.

3.5 / 10.0 - The Quiet Man
Nov 4, 2018

The Quiet Man near-instantly derails a compelling concept with its most horrid execution and thigh-slapping self-seriousness, and is sure to go down as one of the worst games of 2018.

Grip: Combat Racing is a game that should be a rousing success on paper given the capabilities of the race cars; sadly it’s doesn’t really feel like it’s captured the essence of what made Rollcage so great almost 20 years ago.

7.5 / 10.0 - Transference
Sep 20, 2018

Though this sinewy psychological thriller may prove both disappointingly brief and overtly obtuse for some headset owners, as an exercise in pure, distilled atmosphere, it's one of PSVR's most bracingly effective offerings so far in 2018.

The Nintendo Switch has turned out to be a fantastic new home for this game, as the portability, touch screen and joy-con support lend much freedom as to how you choose to play this game.

In many ways Shadow of the Tomb Raider is an apotheosis of everything the reboot series has attempted to achieve, and while this certainly makes it feel like a greatest hits of the franchise at times, the gorgeous hub-worlds and superb pacing ensure it's an easy recommendation for fans of the prior titles.

7.5 / 10.0 - Mario Tennis Aces
Jun 27, 2018

Though far from an unqualified success, it nevertheless proves itself a surprisingly nuanced and less-surprisingly addictive sports title overflowing with personality.

8 / 10.0 - Unravel Two
Jun 11, 2018

Though dialling back the frustration and amping up the breezy enjoyment is the key to Unravel Two being an overall more satisfying experience than its predecessor, the inclusion of co-op really is the pièce de résistance. It transforms an already endearing indie platformer into a gleeful social experience.

8 / 10.0 - Onrush
Jun 10, 2018

Onrush is one of the more intriguing (non)racers to come down the pike in quite some time; a slick, lightning-paced breath of fresh air for those who find Gran Turismo and Forza Motorsport drier than sawdust.
