I found that 'Blazing Chrome' was best played with a controller. The D-Pad on my 8BitDo controller makes the game much better to play, especially when setting the angle for diagonal shots, but now with the Switch Lite on the horizon with its D-Pad on the handheld, this is almost a non-issue.

Some building games can get boring when you finish one project without another one on the horizon, but Dragon Quest Builders 2 always has something in store for you, and a lot of the time you'll never see it coming.

Along with Kay, the player is subject to a rollercoaster of emotions, each of which is elevated due to the poignant soundtrack composed by Guy Jackson; a soring orchestral onset that isn't afraid to quietly hide in the background when it needs to.

Aside from technical issues, Bloodstained remains an excellent title. It's Castlevania in everything but name and fans of Igarachi's earlier work will find a lot to love between excellent combat and rewarding traversal. The Switch port is harder to recommend at present, but the game is likely to be among the console's best after a patch or two. Grab your pitchfork and torches, there's huntin' to do.

As it stands, we have a decent game that will give puzzle fans plenty to enjoy. And something for those looking for a unique spin on a growingly popular two-character formula.

At worst it almost feels like the game is half batting against you so that when you’re downed you have to start building thing up all over again. That said, all in, a fun Lego-like exploration title with a hint of Minecraft and maybe World Of Tanks mixed in there too. There's something for everyone of all ages.

But once the novelty of a new game fades, what we're left with is a failure of a title that simply loses itself after the first hour or so. And you end up going in bizarre circles without any sense of satisfaction.

So will they break out of the 'cricket lovers only' mold? I doubt it.

Previously we'd have said that Uncharted 4: A Thief's End was unequivocally the greatest game you'd ever see on the PS4. But now, thanks to the extra processing power of PS4 Pro, Horizon Zero Dawn probably edges it. Hell, it even has a fantastic photo mode thrown in just for good measure that can make those breathtaking vistas look all the more impressive.

Again though, we really are splitting hairs because this is a near flawless game.

It's a game that's constantly reminding you that it is a game released in 2009, with its dated single-player mode and boring missions.

The whole experience does work better in handheld mode, but doesn't feel as good as the tv mode should if it worked properly. In the end, even the biggest puppy dog eyes can't convince you spend another ten minutes trying to throw a couple of frisbees.

Sairento VR was originally released in 2018 before it was done cooking. A year later, with some more time in the oven, and this is honestly a must-have VR title for anyone with even a passing interest in action games, ninjas, or good old-fashioned slow-motion combat.

With even more tools and features than before, Super Mario Maker 2 is a fantastic level-making package deserving of its number.

The Sinking City has an incredible atmosphere that really grips the darkest parts of your mind. Oakmont feels hostile, unwelcoming and full of secrets, but the game makes it clear that it might cost more than just your life to find out what they are. While it stumbles with its characters and combat, The Sinking City is a great first step into the supernatural detective game.

Between crazy customisation, adventure mode time attacks and endless amounts to do in arcade mode both solo and with friends, CTR Nitro-Fueled excels at offering a valued sense of replayability that'll most certainly keep players making return trips to channel their need for speed.

My Friend Pedro is an addictive experience and a mesmerising shoot-em-up that, though failing to deliver a good story, takes you on a violent ballet filled with blood, bullets and bananas.

It's a shame because the golfing basics feel so good once you get to grips with them that it seems a shame there's no real reason to keep testing your skills. Leaderboards offer a small incentive, but less asynchronous multiplayer would've been appreciated.
