A bigger, more ambitious stealth sequel which revamps the original's mechanics and personality but most of the changes are to the game's detriment.

A stunning visual style can't hide the fact that Sable is not only uninterested in guiding its players but it doesn't really care about entertaining them either.
Highly impressive on a technical level but the throwbacks to PS2 era game design feel less like a homage and more an indication of the developers' lack of experience and imagination.
There's so much reused content it barely feels like a new game at times but the storytelling in Lost Judgment is some of the best, and most thoughtful, the Yakuza series has ever known.
The 2D visuals are absolutely stunning, but the simplistic action and pretentious storytelling undermine what could have been a true neo-retro classic.
A chirpy spin on the skateboarding sim genre, undermined by poor level design and frustrating gameplay.
A dark and comical action adventure with excellent combat mechanics, sharp writing, and a memorable cast of characters.
Not quite a misfire but while the action is highly entertaining this time-looping adventure squanders much of its premise on disappointingly straightforward objectives and a curiously tame portrayal of unchecked hedonism.
A well designed, turn-based roguelike with a winning art style and a wide variety of options – even if it is a bit too random.
A charming addition to the Life Is Strange franchise that has one of the best branching narratives in any video game and one of the most likeable set of characters.
