MLB The Show 21PS5
Being the most consistent annual sports franchise out there, MLB The Show manages to overcome the loss of a few key features to give players yet another reason to step right back into the batter's box in MLB The Show 21.
Outriders has great ideas and those come shining through at various high points to spectacular effect, but it is pushing against the weight of inconsistent execution and unstable systems.

Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1 + 2Xbox Series X
Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2 was already a fantastic remake, literally bringing the franchise back from the dead. Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2 Next-Gen is just the definitive edition of an outstanding project, making it worthy of those extra bucks.
BRAVELY DEFAULT IISwitch
If you're here for the former you'll absolutely enjoy your time with Bravely Default II, even if some of its failings start to grate on you. If you wanted the latter then the excellent combat, art, and music will help you overlook Bravely Default II's otherwise tired tale."
Bob Help ThemSwitch
While the gameplay is centered around the seemingly monotonous task of fulfilling villager requests from stage to stage, Bob Help Them is an oddly laidback game that is an enjoyable experience, albeit a pretty short one.
Crash Bandicoot 4: It's About TimePS5
Crash Bandicoot is starting off his 25th anniversary celebration in style with an upgraded version of what was already a stellar game. The number of changes may be fairly minimal overall, but there is no reason not to experience Crash at his very best on new generation hardware with Crash Bandicoot 4: It's About Time.
Succeeding in this title relies heavily on your own intuition, how you manage your card deck, and knowing when to give up a run. If everything that was described sounds interesting or fun have a go at it. It certainly fills this niche role that can’t really be found anywhere else.
Werewolf: The Apocalypse - Heart of the ForestPS4
With a unique art style, effective use of sound and plenty of lore, Heart of the Forest is well worth checking out if you’re a fan of visual novels and the werewolf genre itself. It’s just a shame there wasn’t more of it."
Persona 5 StrikersPS4
Persona 5 Strikers does a great job continuing what was an already great and established universe, without changing much, besides the battle formula. While there aren’t any mind blowing events in its story nor its gameplay, the game stays true to its legacy and roots.
Ghost ‘n Goblins ResurrectionSwitch
While the gameplay itself definitely won't be for everyone, due to it being very rooted to the past, Capcom has certainly done a good job reviving what not too long ago seemed like a dead series with the very fittingly titled Ghosts 'n Goblins Resurrection. "
Capcom Arcade StadiumSwitch
What keeps Capcom Arcade Stadium of having a perfect score, is the lack of Online Multiplayer and certain beloved games, that would otherwise elevate this title to new heights. That said, it’s an excellent trip to the past, with a good amount of content and tons of replayability.
Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s FurySwitch
By combining the completely new Bowser’s Fury expansion with what was an already stellar Super Mario 3D World, there is no question that Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury will provide you with hours of pure joy in what is one of the best entries in the overall Mario series and yet another must own title in the Nintendo Switch library.
Nioh 2 – The Complete EditionPC
Nioh 2 inhabits the same space as From Software’s critically-acclaimed Souls franchise, but it is by no means its inferior. Unlike the other “inspired by” series circulating the market, Nioh 2 has pushed past that descriptor. Team Ninja has developed a game that, like From Software’s games, has no equal. It is an experience that simply does not exist elsewhere.
A small helping of issues are not enough to derail Nerve, though they do keep it from greatness. What's on offer is worth playing if you're a fan of games that encourage "one more attempt", though there will be moments you'll walk away more annoyed than satisfied.
Little Nightmares IIXbox One
Little Nightmares II excels at creating a truly eerie atmosphere that’ll stay with you even after you’ve put your controller down. There were moments in which I wasn’t entirely sure what was going on but I think that’s part of its charm. It’s weird and wonderful and that’s what makes it great.
The Yakuza Remastered CollectionPC
This collection is a must have for any Yakuza players that are familiar with the series and want to jump straight into the story after Yakuza Kiwami 2. Performance is excellent with the occasional graphical bug here or there. However, this is not a good starting point for unfamiliar players.
Slay the SpireAndroid
To put it simply, if you liked Slay the Spire on consoles, there is nothing not to like about this release. Seriously, the game was meant to be played on a mobile device, without even hindering the console entries. They are equally enjoyable, depending on what you are looking for.
Gods Will FallPS4
While it has some positive elements that may still make it worth checking out, Gods Will Fall's procedurally generated difficulty hurts itself more than it really helps in the long run."
Control: Ultimate EditionPS5
Control shines on next-gen hardware. Whether you're delving into the Oldest House for the first time or are revisiting the facility to get a taste of the new ray-tracing features or 60 FPS performance mode, Control: Ultimate Edition is a stellar experience that provides the definitive way to play Remedy's latest title."
The MediumXbox Series X
With compelling gameplay this could have worked out, but there’s no real challenge either mentally or physically as you make your way through. Instead all it tests is your patience and your dedication to piecing together the too often fractured narrative.
Atelier Ryza 2: Lost Legends & the Secret FairyPS5
While Atelier Ryza 2 doesn't do much to stand out other than its in-depth crafting system, the core joys of the genre are here. If you like JRPGs, you could do much worse than this."
Hitman 3 is the ultimate murder simulator. Now that the World of Assassination trilogy is finally complete, there's no excuse to not play Hitman. In order to truly appreciate the game's intricacies, you have to commit to replaying levels, attempting challenges, and testing out new strategies.
