Steelrising isn’t just another forgettable soulslike experience. Its familiar gameplay is elevated by the stellar look and feel of the weapons alongside a visually striking reimagining of 1978 Paris. There is a lot to love her and a lot more to look forward to in terms of what Spiders can do with a future entry.
The Last of Us Part 1 Remake features massive improvements over the PS4 remaster when it comes to graphics, gameplay, and accessibility. While it may not feel like a full-blown remake at times given how well the original holds up to this day, the game is still highly recommended, especially for those who have yet to play the original.
Soul Hackers 2 takes some of the good parts of its parent series but makes it more forgiving for new comers, enough to give them a good foothold as they get introduced in this series of games. It follows a somewhat streamlined story that people might find cliched, but it has its own intrigue with its great characters that are lovable in design and personality.
The Saints Row reboot really brings the franchise back to when it was just a street gang trying to rise up the ranks. While the story does have its moments with a large variety of fun activities to do alone or with a friend, it’s unfortunately bogged down by outdated gameplay mechanics and technical issues.
Digimon Survive felt like a game that wasn’t supposed to be one in the first place. The glimpses of brilliance being presented in the narrative are tainted by a tactics-based combat system that felt like it belonged to a forgettable mobile game rather than a release that was meant to celebrate 25 years of a long recognizable brand.
Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered is a solid PC port of a great game. While it may not be a groundbreaking open-world title, it still packs entertaining gameplay and a great story that will make for a fun experience. Plus, the PC version runs well on both high-end and low-end hardware that we tested.
Two Point Campus delivers the same quirkiness and gameplay as its predecessor, but it's more than just a reskinned version of Two Point Hospital. It has its own unique personality that will delight during hours of gameplay. Though the gameplay itself could be confusing for the uninitiated to the genre, the pacing is good enough to let you understand the mechanics so that you don't get flooded with too much information.
MADiSON is a great horror experience that will make your skin crawl, your heart pounding, and your eyes and ears begging to be covered. Developer Bloodious Games does an amazing job at building up tension through simple game mechanics and immersive environments. While some of the puzzles could use some tweaking, the game is still technically impressive and terrifying in all the right ways.
MX vs. ATV Legends feels outdated, out-polished, and outran by some of its competitors in the motocross genre. There are tidbits of fun to be had in the experience but it feels more frustrating to play with the number of technical flaws present.
Sonic Origins is undeniably fun with faithful recreations of the original games that represented the peak of the franchise. It, however, loses its momentum with unnecessary DLC that taints an otherwise charming love letter that celebrates 30 years for everyone’s favorite blue hedgehog.
OlliOlli World: VOID Riders is a welcome addition to the base game as it features lots of fun levels. And while it's difficulty may be on the tougher side (especially if you haven't beat the main game yet), it's a fun challenge overall with lots of cool additions.
The Quarry's pacing can be a tad slow, but it is short enough not to overstay its welcome before getting to a more tense pace. But the tension was not transferred onto the gameplay where choices acted as more of a respite during these hectic scenarios. Still, despite some questionable moments, it is pretty engaging game with a high replay value.
Despite its initial glitches and issues, Warhammer 40k Chaos Gate - Daemon Hunters is a challenging game with many unique mechanics that sets it apart from other turn based tactical RPGs, all while having a challenging yet compelling difficulty. This makes it a game that we recommend highly to big Warhammer 40k fans.
The Skywalker Saga not only features an improved version of the classic Lego Star Wars gameplay, it also lets players experience the Star Wars saga in a fun and joyful way, as well as allowing them to explore the series' iconic locations thanks to large, semi-open world levels.
