All in all, Metro Exodus takes great strides in evolving the series into a methodical sandbox experience that usually knows when to liberate and when to confine you. Held back from true greatness by its raw and clunky mechanics, it is otherwise a worthy conclusion to a near decade-long trilogy.
Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice marks the artful fusion of Tenchu’s core design philosophy with the tried and tested Souls formula. Its fresh combat loop offers tense and engaging moment-to-moment gameplay that tests your wits and rewards you for your concentration, all while making things more accessible without taking away the soul of the experience.
The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel is a classic JRPG that holds up well in gameplay despite some dated visuals. The story, world-building, and character development in the game is truly next level and should set as an example for other games to follow.
Trails of Cold Steel II changes the structure of the story but keeps the engaging combat. This port is more of the same with almost identical features for PS4 although the performance isn't as solid as the first game.
