Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes

Switch
7.00
Hirun CryerJun 21, 2022
Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes almost pulls off what should be an audacious crossover – frantic large-scale, Dynasty Warriors-style battles with some of the tactical depth which made Fire Emblem so famous. Where Three Hopes slips is in its ability to properly breathe new life into the characters that were so clearly at the heart of the Three Houses experiences.

Mario Strikers: Battle League

Joel FraneyJun 08, 2022
I just really wish that joie de vivre had carried over to the gameplay of Mario Strikers, which at its core is an average football arcade game with a few Nintendo-brand bells and whistles resting on it. I guess I had fun at times, but I suspect deep down that if I'd paid full retail price for it, I would've come away feeling a lot less charitable about the whole thing.

There's a decent stab here at a slasher movie-style Horny Teen Murder Simulator but one that feels unbalanced by the size of its cast. Less people might have actually allowed the final act, where all the best stuff happens, to open more but as it stands there's a lot more setup than there is payoff.

Sniper Elite 5

Joe DonnellyMay 25, 2022
In bigger picture terms, Sniper Elite 5 is the most well-rounded Sniper Elite game the longstanding series has produced yet, even if its core mechanics have remained virtually unchanged since Sniper Elite V2's release in 2012. It was there the series' now iconic x-ray kill cam was born, which is still as satisfying as it was a decade ago, and is today bloodier and grizzlier than ever before.

It's not perfect, but Evil Dead: The Game is the most approachable asymmetrical horror out there and breathes new life into a genre with badass survivors, wonderfully ruthless demons, and a palpable love for an 80s horror icon.

Vampire: The Masquerade - Swansong

Rachel WeberMay 18, 2022
It's a game purely for existing Masquerade players, which is fine if Big Bad Wolf is happy with the sales that represent that. I just wish it had been a more accessible portal into a universe I'd always wanted to explore, rather than a big secret no one wanted to let me in on.

Trek to Yomi

PS5
6.00
Jon BailesMay 05, 2022
In its visuals and audio, Trek to Yomi nails its brief to create an Akira Kurosawa-inspired samurai adventure. Its interactive elements, however, along with its story, are all too ordinary and rarely combine to heighten the atmosphere or create suspense. Worth a try for the sightseeing perhaps, but don’t expect it to cut deep.

A well-thought-out online mode lifts Nintendo Switch Sports from being a sheer nostalgia trip, to an experience well worth the investment.

Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga

Justin TowellApr 06, 2022
A breathtakingly expansive and authentic recreation of the core Star Wars universe in LEGO. Its gameplay is predictably simplistic at times, but literally everything else is stellar. At last, THIS is the droid you are looking for.

Still surprisingly swing-and-miss online, but for long-lasting and moreish solo play, NBA 2K22 is its only competitor in a two-horse championship duel.

Weird West has the ambition of a much larger game, and has made smart choices to be able to meet it.

An entertaining and silly mix of fantasy and shooting, with a great cast making up for a slight lack of variety.

Kirby and the Forgotten Land

Heather WaldMar 23, 2022
Kirby's latest adventure is an absolute treat and one you won't want to miss. With more open platforming in an eye-grabbing 3D world, a generous helping of fantastic features in Waddle Dee Town, and the introduction of Mouthful Mode, Kirby and the Forgotten Land offers up a memorable experience that will undoubtedly make you smile.

GhostWire: Tokyo

PS5

Josh WestMar 21, 2022
Ghostwire: Tokyo feels like a throwback to a different era of action game design. It takes an off-beat approach to world design, story encounters, and combat pacing that won't be for everyone, but if you can get it to click into place you'll have a resoundingly chill time hunting ghosts throughout Tokyo.

Stranger of Paradise: Final Fantasy Origin

PS5
5.00
Jon BailesMar 14, 2022
There's a half-decent time to be had bashing your way around Stranger of Paradise's dungeons, but routine level design, rough edges and messy narrative delivery stop the experience evolving into a compelling adventure. Despite its efforts to create ordered systems, chaos has the final word.

The Witch Queen is not only the best and most complete version of Destiny 2, it's the foundation for something better still.

The Kill Team Starter Set shows off what makes this skirmish wargame special, but it leaves something to be desired if you're a beginner.

A stellar first WWE outing on PS5 and XBox Series X, but legacy flaws hold it back from true greatness.

TRIANGLE STRATEGY

Hirun CryerMar 03, 2022
Triangle Strategy is a great strategic battler, meshed with devilish politicking and weighty decisions. It’s just a shame the cast of characters never gets a chance to shine just as bright.

Everything that made GT Sport so good, plus everything that made early Gran Turismo games so good. A simply stunning driving game and a superb showcase for PS5.

Martha is Dead will leave you psychologically scarred. Whether you enjoy the process depends on your constitution and hatred of bicycles.

Elden Ring

10.0
Joel FraneyFeb 23, 2022
Elden Ring is both a refinement and evolution of the Dark Souls formula, presenting an expansive world that's as hostile as it is inviting. Despite the occasional excess, suffering has never been as much fun as this.

Horizon Forbidden West

Sam LoveridgeFeb 14, 2022
Horizon Forbidden West is a tweaked, enhanced, and confident sequel that exceeds expectations, delivering an open world full of compelling characters, an intriguing story, and yes, more super awesome robot dinosaurs.

Warhammer Underworlds: Online

Matt ThrowerFeb 07, 2022
A mediocre edition of a great game. You can skip Harrowdeep, but don’t let that put you off Warhammer: Underworlds as a whole.
