GEARS 5

Xbox One
9.00
Shubhankar ParijatSep 04, 2019
Gears 5 is one of Microsoft’s best games this console generation. It’s a package that’s brimming with content, and has top-notch stuff on offer for you no matter what you’re looking for. With its campaign, it successfully revitalizes a franchise may had feared was becoming stale, while with its online component, it continues to be on the top of its game, the way the series always been since the day it was born.

Monster Hunter: World - Iceborne

PS4
9.00
Ravi SinhaSep 04, 2019
Monster Hunter World: Iceborne has everything that a fan could possibly want - challenging monsters, tons of new weapons and armor, an incredibly in-depth combat system with even more nuance thanks to new moves and mechanics, and a boat-load of new quests. The typical annoyances remain but don't let that stop you from undertaking this icy exodus.

Astral Chain

Switch
9.00
Billy GivensSep 02, 2019
Astral Chain constantly impresses with its enthralling premise, frenetic action, and abundance of content. Even in its quietest moments, it exudes heart and intrigue, and for those willing to dig deeper, The Ark and its mysteries are a joy to discover. Beautiful visuals and incredible presentation values round things out to make it one of the Switch’s must-own titles.

Final Fantasy VIII Remastered

PS4

Will BorgerSep 02, 2019
Final Fantasy VIII Remastered still has many of the same design flaws as the original release, but new visuals and gameplay tweaks make this the best version of a beloved classic.

MXGP 2019

PS4
6.00
Shubhankar ParijatAug 29, 2019
MXGP 2019 is a solid enough simulation game, to the extent that those who’re looking for an authentic motocross simulator will most likely be happy enough with what it has to offer. That said, though the game has a solid foundation, it doesn’t really build much stuff on top of that foundation. Lacklustre presentation, a barebones career mode, and the lack of meaningful progression end up making this feel like an ultimately bland experience.

Decay of Logos

PC
4.00
Billy GivensAug 28, 2019
In its quest to mimic other successful franchises, Amplify Creations has created the Frankenstein of video games. Decay of Logos is an unbalanced, unresponsive mess with little soul to pick up the slack. There are far too many better alternatives to waste any time with this fundamentally broken adventure.

The Dark Pictures Anthology - Man of Medan

PC
8.00
Will BorgerAug 28, 2019
Man of Medan may not be as long as Until Dawn, but it’s got a ton of replayability and makes the most of the choices it offers its players. The co-op mode is an exceptional addition to a great formula, and the fact that there are two “cuts” of the game is just icing on an already delicious cake. Supermassive has done great work here, and for a budget price, you really can’t go wrong. Now I just need to round up my friends. We’ve got a ghost ship to take care of.

Control

PS4
9.00
Shubhankar ParijatAug 26, 2019
Remedy Entertainment is a studio with a storied history, so to say that they're at their absolute best here is no slight praise, and it's not praise that's easily given- but Control is just that good. Whether it's a story you're looking for, or engaging gameplay with mechanical depth, Control has more than enough up its sleeve to keep you rigorously engaged from start to finish.

Remnant: From the Ashes

PC
7.00
Will BorgerAug 21, 2019
Remnant: From The Ashes is a game with extremely derivative design, but good gunplay, solid co-op play, and smart randomization means it's still fun, if not original, solo or with friends.

Metal Wolf Chaos XD

PS4
5.00
PramathAug 07, 2019
Metal Wolf Chaos XD should be a relatively easy recommendation – and if you choose to buy it for the meme, knowing that the entertainment you get from it is more of the “so bad it’s good” variety, that the gameplay isn’t anything too special to make up for how the game is deliberately putting its worst put forward in favor of a joke, then yes, it’s actually pretty funny in how ridiculously and hyperbolically bad it is, with the at-times strangely engaging gameplay, and the game’s occasionally sharp wit acting as additional advantages to the purchase.

Madden NFL 20

PS4
8.00
Will BorgerJul 28, 2019
Madden NFL 20 doesn't reinvent the wheel, but the X-factor and Superstar system, combined with Face of the Franchise and a number of smart additions to Franchise and Ultimate Team make it a winner, despite its ongoing bugs and glitches.

Wolfenstein: Youngblood

Xbox One
7.00
Shubhankar ParijatJul 28, 2019
Wolfenstein: Youngblood is very clearly not Wolfenstein 3, and you shouldn't expect it to be. It's a side-story before the final chapter in MachineGames Wolf saga, and for what it is, it's a lot of fun. It doesn't succeed at everything it does – the RPG mechanics in particular feel tacked on and needless – but its open-ended nature and excellent level design still make it a really good Nazi-slaying time.

MARVEL ULTIMATE ALLIANCE 3: The Black Order

Switch
8.00
PramathJul 23, 2019
Hardcore Marvel fans will find a lot to love in Ultimate Alliance 3, straddling as it does the many eras of Marvel's history so well. For everyone else, Ultimate Alliance 3 is an entertaining and extremely fun game that is best experienced with others.

Assassin's Creed Odyssey The Fate of Atlantis

Xbox One
9.00
Shubhankar ParijatJul 22, 2019
Packed with content and brimming with incredible artistic and creative flair, The Fate of Atlantis serves as a more than satisfying conclusion to this massive Greek odyssey.

Blazing Chrome

PC

Will BorgerJul 12, 2019
Blazing Chrome an excellent throwback to the games of yesteryear, and a loving tribute to Contra and Metal Slug that establishes its own identity through beautiful art, fantastic design, and an excellent soundtrack.

Dragon Quest Builders 2

PS4
8.00
Shubhankar ParijatJul 11, 2019
With a smarter UI, much-needed quality of life improvements, and a couple of new mechanics and features, Dragon Quest Builders 2 is a much leaner, more organic, and more enjoyable Builders experience, and feels like a proper realization of the experiment that the first game was.

Sea of Solitude

PS4
6.00
Billy GivensJul 11, 2019
Sea of Solitude isn’t a bad game, but it’s one that could’ve been far more profound if it handled its delicate subject matter with more care. There’s an engaging story to be told, but all of its compelling narrative ideas are constantly undermined by its cringe-inducing voice acting and bad dialogue. Meanwhile, gameplay suffers from a general lack of things to do or discover in its beautiful world, leaving players with a sense of fatigue as the game wears on.

Citizens of Space

PS4
7.00
PramathJul 09, 2019
For what Citizens of Space is, it's hard to find much fault with it - a not overly long, light-hearted, witty jaunt through a surprisingly well written and well playing inter-galactic adventure. 

Super Mario Maker 2

Switch
9.00
Shubhankar ParijatJul 02, 2019
There’s just so much to do in Super Mario Maker 2. People often say about certain games that they offer infinite content and endless replayability, but here, that’s truer than it is in most other cases. Regardless of whether you’re looking to create your own deathtraps and ingenious courses, or are just looking to enjoy the courses created by others – Nintendo included – there really is infinite content for you here. The fact that it’s all so well-designed and easy to use, but also offers a ton of depth, makes it that much better.

Assetto Corsa Competizione

PC
6.00
Will BorgerJun 29, 2019
Assetto Sorsa Competizione features incredible driving, fantastic sound design, impressive weather effects, and gorgeous cars and tracks on which to drive them. Unfortunately, its limited career mode, poorly implemented safety rating, spotty AI, and lack of polish keep it from achieving greatness on the track.

Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night

PramathJun 24, 2019
Bloodstained finally delivers upon the promise of a modern follow-up to Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, and it does so spectacularly.

Samurai Shodown

Will BorgerJun 24, 2019
Despite inconsistent visual presentation and some barebones modes, Samurai Showdown shines as both a unique fighter and a resurrection of a classic series.

The Sinking City provides a compelling story, gorgeous art, and genuine scares, but.

Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled

Xbox One
8.00
Shubhankar ParijatJun 22, 2019
Annoyances with the Adventure Mode aside, Nitro-Fueled is a great comeback for Crash and his kart racing antics. It’s a reminder of just how great Crash Team Racing was when it first launched on the PS1 all those years ago, but it’s also a commendable modernization of a classic that definitely could have aged better. For returning fans, it’s a nostalgic victory lap, and for newcomers, it’s a memorable initiation. Here’s hoping Activision sees the value in Crash kart racing games, and greenlights Beenox to work on more of them very soon.

F1 2019

PS4

Rashid SayedJun 21, 2019
F1 2019 is the most complete Formula One game ever made. It’s brimming with content, and for F1 enthusiasts, there are plenty of things to play around with. An excellent career mode backed up by an in-depth Championships mode, and a host of interesting challenges make this year’s iteration one of the best F1 games of all time.
