Ghostrunner will carry us through to our next generation, with the implication that even the simplest gameplay loop can deliver an action packed experience. A combination of solid parkour traversing, incredible detail and design with seamless and stylish offense that is fused with an incredibly futuristic overture makes for one of the best gaming experiences, this year.
A myriad of discernible properties that could be attached in waves of unimaginable facets, would deliver concepts unseen within this great medium. Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit is an essential for Switch owners who love the Super Mario franchise itself, and a must have for Mario Kart mainstays.
Everything that is delivered in this year’s release is a decent offering for those looking to essentially make the ‘upgrade’ from FIFA 20. A updated roster, with new features and some contextual upgrades applied makes FIFA 21, a valuable Football title for 2020.
Mesmerised by its simple yet effective gameplay loop, adorned by its aesthetic, and while its narrative was somewhat cumbersome, I was gripped by the campaign’s climax. Kirby Fighters 2 is an awesome casual title, a great talking piece for the Smash community, and one for the entire family to enjoy.
Mafia Definitive Edition has raised the stakes. It’s a series that has essentially gone to war on itself by rebuilding, redefining, and reintroducing its stellar narrative to an entirely new generation of gamers. As someone whose family thinks of The Godfather Trilogy as a holy testimony to Italian heritage, Mafia delivers an astounding performance on all fronts from gameplay, presentation, design and delivery.
Crash and his friends have finally found a new home alongside his buddy Spyro at Activision. While I may wear these rose tinted goggles proudly, I can say with the utmost confidence that Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s about Time is in contention for Game of the Year.
