The witty writing and unique premise still make Beat Cop a street worth investigating. It has plenty of questions to post on morality (just how far would you push your agenda on the people that look up to you?) but makes it silly and accessible enough to never become too dire. Its a riot, and well worth a routine inspection.

The end result is a loot shooter far more confident and coherent than what we've seen before. Ubisoft Massive has learned from past mistakes, side-stepping those same pitfalls to deliver a sequel that feels dense without becoming tangled. There are still some rough edges and the burden of carrying a limp story but, ultimately, The Division 2 triumphs over everything else this genre currently has to offer.

Final Fantasy IX is an excellent RPG with excellent characters, a fun story and combat, and is a great reason to experience one of the original PlayStation's finest titles on a new platform. Unfortunately, the quality of life improvements made can't cover up the fact that this is a lazy port of a game that deserves better.

While Sekiro certainly shares DNA with the previous Soulsborne games, fundamental sword-fighting battle mechanic changes leave it feeling fresh. However, as the old saying goes, when you live by the sword, you die by the sword, and players need to be aware that this is a game that will see you die many, many times.

Don’t let the ‘5’ in the title intimidate you, the game is as much of a warm welcome to the world of Devil May Cry as it is a hard-earned treat for fans. Gameplay is refined and polished constituting a fluid and wonderfully satisfying action experience. Honestly, demolishing an endless stream of fugly demons with outlandish flair and snagging those ‘S’ ranks has never looked and felt so good.

The Occupation might not be the first of its kind, yet it manages to provide a distinct experience that delivers on everything it promises. With completion only lasting a few hours, you’ll find yourself craving more, whilst not actually feeling like your time with the game was cut short.

Here's hoping for a swift fix for the game's most pressing issues, because almost everything that works, works well. With some more polish, Anthem could be a great way to spend an evening playing with friends - just don't expect the next Mass Effect or Destiny.

Its levels are expertly crafted, its style is unique, and its mechanics are sharper than steel.

Jump Force is best enjoyed by separating it from the story entirely. It isn’t worth your time to invest in this half-baked storyline with its soulless characters and poor plot.

Overall, New Dawn is a well thought out and enjoyable first-person shooter. Its singular let down is a fairly mundane story that leaves the game feeling like a decent extension to Far Cry 5 rather than its own post-apocalyptic adventure.

Crackdown 3 won’t blow you away with its graphics and the story isn’t heartbreaking and memorable - but it’s fun... lots and lots of cathartic, explosive fun.

Metro Exodus is quite simply astounding and it's good to see it escaping the underground and, hopefully, it'll get the recognition it deserves now that it's out in the open for all to see.

Overall, Pikuniku makes for a joyful experience to be enjoyed by kids and adults alike, at least for the couple of hours that it lasts.

While its trial and error approach to level design may discourage some, those looking to fill a Hotline Miami-shaped hole in their gaming diet could do a lot worse than Vreski’s beautiful, balletic, bullet buffet.

This episode contains the best scenes of the season so far, but it wastes an egregious amount of time getting to the point.

This is a game that wants to delight you. It is unapologetically hopeful, like nothing I’ve ever played, offering a seemingly endless font of positivity that is difficult to ignore. Alas, it is still very much a Kingdom Hearts game, and the staunchly unwavering architecture of it is felt in every U.I element and cutscene.
