Super Mario Maker 2Switch
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 CompetizionePC
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.
Crash Team Racing Nitro-FueledXbox One
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 Anniversary EditionPS4
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.
Team Sonic RacingPS4
In conclusion, Sonic Team Racing’s rockin’ soundtrack, beautiful and detailed course designs, and plenty of modes and options to dig into makes it an absolute joy to play. There’s so much to love here, and it’s even sweeter at the game’s budget launch price.
Observation combines an excellent narrative and presentation with some often cumbersome gameplay elements that really drag the experience down. It’s absolutely worth seeing through to its conclusion, but it may not come easy to the impatient and unforgiving.
A Plague Tale: InnocenceXbox One
A Plague Tale: Innocence isn't the largest, most expansive game you'll ever play, nor does it accomplish new things in the areas where it does place its ambitions, but it's stronger for it. It's a focused story-driven experience completely free of bloat or unnecessary attempts at lengthening its runtime, and knows exactly what it wants to do. It delivers an emotional and effective tale, while also implementing simple mechanics in constantly engaging ways to make sure that it's not always all about the story.
Sniper Elite V2 RemasteredPS4
Sniper Elite V2 Remastered is a conflicted game. It’s one part phenomenal sniping experience and one part clunky, run-of-the-mill third-person shooting gallery full of awful AI. If you’re able to overlook its glaring faults, there’s fun to be derived from its attention to realism in its sniping and its brilliant bullet cam gore, but overall, this one’s best left in the past.
