10 / 10.0 - Tekken 8
Feb 8, 2024

Tekken 8 is the pinnacle of the series. There has never been a better Tekken and few fighting games could be considered this good. It is an absolute treat for fans, both old and new, and I can’t see myself putting it down for years to come. I have scarcely enjoyed any game on PS5 this much.

If you’re a fan of the Silent Hill series, The Short Message is definitely worth checking out... However, if you’re hoping for a revolutionary entry in one of gaming’s most iconic horror series, you will be disappointed.

6.5 / 10.0 - Ready or Not
Jan 3, 2024

Ready or Not is a remarkable yet hollow achievement that should have aspired to be more than it ended up being: fun and flawed in equal measure.

9.5 / 10.0 - Alan Wake 2
Nov 24, 2023

This sequel is a significantly better game than its predecessor owing, in part, to the fact that it knows exactly what it wants to be. It is a true survival horror experience from start to finish. Alan Wake II is one of this year’s best games and cements Remedy and its creative director, Sam Lake, at the top of the industry.

Armored Core 6: Fires of Rubicon is a solid effort from FromSoftware. The problem is, we’ve come to expect a lot more than “solid” from this company. It does most things right and performs like a dream, but there’s an unmistakable sense that FromSoftware considered it less important than, say, Elden Ring and Bloodborne.

If the original Modern Warfare 3 represented the culmination of a genre-defining FPS trilogy, then Modern Warfare III encapsulates everything wrong with contemporary Call of Duty.

This compilation isn’t quite what it could have been, but it is a worthy tribute to an iconic series beloved by millions. While it won’t blow you away, rest assured that it delivers the exact Metal Gear experience you remember.

Fans of stealth-action Assassin’s Creed will be satisfied with Mirage as a game that delivers on its central promise to revisit what first made the series so special all those years ago.

The Texas Chain Saw Massacre is a decent way to spend a few hours if you want a few simple scares. Although, I imagine that is all it will provide for most players.

Layers of Fear is an acceptable package of horror stories, but that's about it. Its few scares do just about enough to earn a title that includes the word "fear", however it isn't in the same ballpark as other genre titans.

9 / 10.0 - F1 23
Jun 20, 2023

F1 23 is where the series finally achieves its current-gen potential, and we’re privileged to be here for it.

Amnesia: The Bunker comes together as a thrilling race against the clock that should keep even the most steely-nerved players on their toes.

8.5 / 10.0 - Dead Island 2
Apr 18, 2023

After such a bumpy road, it’s wonderful that Dead Island 2 has arrived in such a commendable state. This is a game you can pick up and play and get exactly what you came for. Good ol’ fashioned zombie chaos with personality and an ambition to get it all right. And what more can you want after all these years?

6.5 / 10.0 - Hogwarts Legacy
Mar 14, 2023

Hogwarts Legacy is a testament to the dedication of its creators and is worthy of its source material. But it could’ve been so much more. Instead, it settled for everything we expected and is destined to be remembered for the poisonous debate that preceded it.

6.5 / 10.0 - Atomic Heart
Feb 20, 2023

Atomic Heart is worth checking out for its incredible setting alone – especially if you’re a Game Pass subscriber. But its disappointing gameplay lets down the exciting promise of its awe-inspiring world.

9.5 / 10.0 - Dead Space (Remake)
Feb 19, 2023

It says so much that Dead Space 2023 changes very little yet remains just as impressive as it was in 2008... It was a sheer pleasure to revisit one of my all-time favourites. Dead Space is a fitting tribute to a disrespected but ceaselessly beloved series.

5 / 10.0 - Forspoken
Jan 31, 2023

I really wanted to like Forspoken. However, its obnoxious protagonist, generic story, visually unappealing and uninteresting world, and shallow gameplay make it nothing more than an average experience that I’m in no rush to revisit.

The end result is a God of War Ragnarök that stands among some of the best PlayStation games, but falls ever-so slightly short of the greatest. This is far from a disappointment. But it doesn’t quite reach the lofty heights of what came before.

The Callisto Protocol is about as close to Dead Space as it could possibly be without bearing the same name. And for many players that will be more than enough to leave them satisfied... Nevertheless, the more you play of The Callisto Protocol the more its flaws stand out.

Scarlet and Violet would probably go down as two of the best games in the series if not for these [performance] issues. Instead, all anyone will likely remember are the viral glitch montages that have swept across social media. And that’s regrettable because at their core is an imperfect yet charming and highly enjoyable adventure.
