Stranger Things 3: The Game

Brad LangJul 12, 2019
Stranger Things 3: The Game is a great adaption of the series that maintains the mystery of the series but unfortunately misses a lot of potential the unique setting provides

Dragon Quest Builders 2

PS4Switch

Alessandro BarbosaJul 11, 2019
Dragon Quest Builders 2 refines its formula and cuts out many of the frustrations from the first game, delivering a more structured story and rewarding pacing that lets you see your hard work gradually blossom rather than be swept away. It's an engrossing sequel that is difficult to pull away from, and now far more welcoming to start too.

Eagle Island

Switch

Brad LangJul 10, 2019
Eagle Island is an enjoyable rogue-like game and an unenjoyable Metroidvania that is fortunately pulled up by the fun combat system, beautiful art style and addictive dungeon crawling.

Sea of Solitude

Brad LangJul 08, 2019
Sea of Solitude is a masterpiece of storytelling, art-design and thematic visualisation. While not necessarily lengthy or mechanically deep it is an astoundingly well-crafted game that should be experienced by everyone

Graveyard Keeper

Switch
6.00
Brad LangJul 04, 2019
Graveyard Keeper is an ambitious life simulator that boasts gorgeous art and some interesting mechanics but unfortunately fails to meet the standards of the genre due to some overly complicated tasks and poor balancing

F1 2019 Anniversary Edition

Alessandro BarbosaJul 03, 2019
F1 2019 is another exceptional racing game that caters to all spectrums of fans, giving you many modes, exhibition events and an exciting career mode to get familiar with its gorgeous tracks. It's simply one of the best simulation racers out there, again.

They Are Billions

Darryn BonthuysJul 01, 2019
They Are Billions is a game based on just a single trick that’s up its undead sleeve. But it’s a hell of a trick, one that’ll keep you ensnared in its tangled web of survival for dozens and dozens of hours as the undead march upon your best base-building efforts.

Life is Strange 2: Episode 3 - Wastelands

PC

Nick CowenJun 28, 2019
Life Is Strange 2: Episode 3 still has a problem with pacing and may put off players who aren’t diehard fans of this series. But for those willing to forgive some of its more mundane passages, this episode delivers a pretty compelling denouement and hints at better things to come.

Timespinner

Switch
8.00
Brad LangJun 28, 2019
Timespinner is a wonderfully accessible and inclusive Metroidvania that does justice to the genre despite some missed opportunities and brief run time.

Super Mario Maker 2

Switch
8.50
Geoffrey TimJun 26, 2019
The original Super Mario Maker is an enduring bit of software, but this makes up for just about every one of the original’s transgressions and adds a full-fat campaign to boot. It’s lovely stuff, offering a world of infinite Mario that has a little something for everyone.

Monster Jam Steel Titans

PC
6.00
Sam SpillerJun 26, 2019
Monster Jam Steel Titans is a very fun car trip leading to a disappointing destination. For all the excellent mechanics and the trucks themselves, there is only so much gas in this single-player tank to cover an empty world and a limited number of races.

The Sinking City

PCPS4
7.00
Brad LangJun 25, 2019
The Sinking City is a great game for fans of Lovecraftian horror and delivers some stellar quest writing but unfortunately stumbles due to overused and uninspired mechanics, a bland protagonist and general lack of life

198X

PC

Darryn BonthuysJun 25, 2019
A beautifully designed love letter to the heyday of video game arcades, 198X uses its passion for a bygone era to tell a touching story that is also a reminder of just how powerful video games really are.

Samurai Shodown

PS4
8.50
Darryn BonthuysJun 24, 2019
Dynamic and dangerous, there’s no other fighting game like Samurai Shodown on the market. After a decade away, this latest chapter proves that idea once again with the sharpest swordsmanship combat around that manages to unleash a barrage of modern cuts while still retaining the magic of the original game.

Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night

Switch
8.00
Brad LangJun 24, 2019
Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night is a worthy follow up to the Castlevania games that many grew up with in terms of its exploration, but lacks some much-needed polish in the combat and animation department to truly shine as a modern gem

Trover Saves The Universe

PS4

Nick CowenJun 21, 2019
Trover Saves The Universe isn’t the most challenging game players will experience this year, but it’s unique, and it’s also probably the funniest.

My Friend Pedro

Switch

Darryn BonthuysJun 20, 2019
A glorious and brutal ballet of blood and bullets, My Friend Pedro is a symphony of action that will leave your thumbs aching for more of its completely bananas fun.

Warhammer: Chaosbane

PS4
7.00
Darryn BonthuysJun 11, 2019
Good but not exceptional, Warhammer: Chaosbane is a solid and confident slice of medieval melee action. As Gothic as it is repetitive in the endgame phase, it’s still an enjoyable romp in the same vein as many an action RPG from yesteryear.

Refunct

Switch
7.00
Brad LangJun 06, 2019
It’s simple, plain and even a touch stilted, yet it’s special. It’s a game designed to revitalise those who would surrender themselves to it, to give themselves over for just a few minutes and step away feeling lighter than when they started. Refunct is a solution to stress, anxiety or a bad day at the office, just don’t expect it to offer much more than that.

MotoGP 19

PS4
7.50
Darryn BonthuysJun 06, 2019
Packed with features, more challenging than ever before thanks to its crafty new Neural AI and still a love letter to an adrenaline-charged sport, MotoGP 19 is an amazingly complete package that is just one spark short of being a motorcycle legend.

Whispers of a Machine

PC
7.00
Nick CowenJun 05, 2019
Whispers Of A Machine is a solid Point & Click adventure underpinned with some intriguing choice mechanics, boasting a solid, if not revelatory plot. Worth seeking out.

Unruly Heroes

PS4
7.50
Geoffrey TimJun 04, 2019
Unruly heroes is a beautiful and delightfully charming game, with everything in it looking hand-painted, brought to life by magical animation. It's a pity that imprecise controls make its difficulty curve more frustrating than it should be though. A lacking bit of spit and polish prevent Unruly Heroes from being an outstanding action platformer.

Vectronom

Switch

Brad LangJun 04, 2019
Vectronom is a gorgeous and accessible rhythm-puzzle game that still manages to both challenge and entertain with tricky courses and a banging soundtrack

Undead Horde

Switch
7.00
Brad LangJun 03, 2019
Undead Horde is a satisfying hack and slash RPG that is perfect for anyone on the go, offering a good amount of customisation and gameplay

Team Sonic Racing

PS4
7.00
Geoffrey TimJun 03, 2019
The team mechanics put an interesting and unique spin on kart-racing, making Team Sonic Racing undoubtedly fun, but it's missing the magic that made Sonic & All Stars Racing Transformed a firm favourite.
