V Rising

PC
8.00
Ridge HarripersadMay 15, 2022
V Rising found that perfect balance of building, combat, some lore and exploration—I would highly recommend it for RPG fans and vampire fans alike.

Dungeons of Dreadrock

Switch
5.00
Jordan BiordiMay 13, 2022
Dungeons of Dreadrock is a paint-by-numbers puzzle game that has little going for it outside of a genuinely nice visual style.

Cities: VR

PC
7.00
Clement GohMay 12, 2022
Cities VR keeps players engaged in building their own utopias with refined controls and immersion but misses an opportunity to innovate through platform-exclusive features.

Eiyuden Chronicle: Rising

Xbox Series X
6.50
Khari TaylorMay 10, 2022
Eiyuden Chronicle: Rising is the Action-RPG equivalent of a solution without a problem -- an almost completely skippable prequel that fails to share any true gameplay DNA with next year’s Hundred Heroes, nor builds any excitement for it.

Trek to Yomi

PS5
8.50
Zubi KhanMay 05, 2022
In general, however, Trek to Yomi is a well-balanced game in terms of difficulty, partially due to well-placed shrines that heal Hiroki and act as checkpoints.

Warhammer 40,000: Chaos Gate - Daemonhunters

PC
7.50
Brendan FryeMay 04, 2022
Warhammer 40,000: Chaos Gate – Daemonhunters is a great combination of tactics, lore and design that will test your skills in hours of turn-based carnage that fans of the franchise should not miss.

Ravenous Devils

Xbox Series X
7.00
Philip WatsonApr 29, 2022
Ravenous Devils dares to be an exotic cuisine in a gaming landscape that sees too much of the same main courses, but the player is left hungry for more flavors in a repetition pool. An easy recommend for players on a budget, who don’t want an intricate experience, and some quick fun.

Nintendo Switch Sports

Switch
7.00
Preston DozsaApr 27, 2022
Switch Sports is a solid multiplayer game that is fun to play, even if there is a limited number of sports and game modes to engage with.

Star Wars: The Force Unleashed

Switch
7.00
Clement GohApr 20, 2022
Star Wars: The Force Unleashed plays as great on the Nintendo Switch as it did on the Wii in 2008, but Aspyr limits Starkiller's true power over a console that can do so much more.

Neptunia x Senran Kagura: Ninja Wars

Switch
6.50
Chris De HoogApr 18, 2022
Neptunia x Senran Kagura: Ninja Wars is a fun yet formulaic anime beat-em-up. However it blurs the lines of both franchises, and might not offer enough of either franchise’s core experience to please their fans.

Chinatown Detective Agency

PC
8.50
Philip WatsonApr 06, 2022
Chinatown Detective Agency is a great detective game that feels rewarding when solutions are found. An easy recommendation to casual and serious gamers, but the replay value may fall short when all is said and done.

13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim

Switch
8.50
Philip WatsonApr 05, 2022
13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim is a finely woven story with strategic elements that is a satisfying addition to the Vanillaware lineup, but fans not into anime or Sci-Fi may feel isolated in this futuristic world.

CHRONO CROSS: THE RADICAL DREAMERS EDITION

Switch
9.00
Philip WatsonApr 05, 2022
Chrono Cross: The Radical Dreamers Edition is a great game with fantastic elements that can entertain players for many hours. A must play for those looking for a new adventure, or just nostalgia upon revisiting a fond memory.

Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga

PS5
8.50
Chris De HoogApr 04, 2022
With a dash more depth to its gameplay, and a lighter touch to its narrative, LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga reinterprets the nine-film epic into a solid experience that all generations of fans will want to revisit.

MLB The Show 22

PS5
8.00
David WaltersApr 04, 2022
MLB The Show 22 is a great entry to the yearly sports franchise, easily the best one yet. It's enough to keep returning players interested, and new players will have a great time learning the ins and outs of the diamond.

Ikai

PC
6.00
Ridge HarripersadMar 28, 2022
Ikai had a great first half with great pacing and providing enough mystery and heart-racing moments but fizzled out by the end.

Grand Theft Auto V

Xbox Series X
9.00
Khari TaylorMar 26, 2022
With a plethora of visual enhancements and quality of life improvements for GTA V and GTA Online leading the charge (60fps performance, ray-traced shadows and significantly faster loading times chief among them), there’s never been a better, easier or more affordable time to visit San Andreas on current-gen consoles, whether it’s your first trip or if you’ve been away for years.
9.00
Philip WatsonMar 24, 2022
TUNIC is a genre-bending breath of fresh air that includes elements from other popular games that all grease the wheel for an exceptional gaming experience. A must-play for all gamers, especially due to its inclusion on Game Pass.

Persona 4 Arena Ultimax

PS4
7.00
Zubi KhanMar 23, 2022
Persona 4 Arena Ultimax is a par for the course port of a surprisingly deep and well-realized fighter that, despite being a spin-off title, knocks out the competition, even nearly a decade later.

Tiny Tina's Wonderlands

PC
8.50
Dayna EileenMar 23, 2022
Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands brings a mystical world to life with a great dialogue and a stellar cast. Pairing all that with action-packed gameplay, Gearbox Software and 2K Games have made a must-play game.

Kirby and the Forgotten Land

Switch
7.50
Jordan BiordiMar 23, 2022
While a mostly fun experience, Kirby and the Forgotten Land definitely forgets a lot of the things that make the pink puffball’s games so unique.

Rune Factory 5

Switch
4.50
Jordan BiordiMar 22, 2022
While not wholly deviod of quality, that Marvelous released Rune Factory 5 in it's current state, is pretty shameful.

Stranger of Paradise: Final Fantasy Origin

PS5
7.50
Chris De HoogMar 22, 2022
Stranger of Paradise: Final Fantasy Origin is an enjoyable experiment in melding Soulslike conventions onto a Final Fantasy skeleton. However it undercuts itself by not daring for more complexity, setting up great narrative and gameplay turns that never come to pass.

GhostWire: Tokyo

PS5
6.00
Preston DozsaMar 21, 2022
Ghostwire: Tokyo envisions a world that is wonderful and interesting to explore at first glance, but soon reveals itself to be shallow and lacking in its writing and combat.

Dark Deity

Switch
8.50
Philip WatsonMar 16, 2022
Dark Deity adds enough to the Fire Emblem DNA to stand on its own legs as a classic SRPG, with a low-price tag and hours of quality Dark Deity is a must play for strategy fans and a possible entryway to first timers to the genre.
