As solid as it’s ever been on the court, NBA 2K22 is still an astonishingly good sports game, but its continued reliance on cynical microtransactions in MyCareer and MyTeam leave a sour taste.

Lost Judgment

Richard WalkerSep 16, 2021
If you need additional proof that developer Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio is a master of its craft, then look no further. Though slightly flawed in places, Lost Judgment is, nonetheless, yet another deeply compelling detective story, brimming with murder, mystery, intrigue, and more twists than a bag of pretzels.

Deathloop

PS5
9.00
Richard WalkerSep 13, 2021
Yet another elegantly composed and impeccably designed Arkane sandbox, Deathloop is an intricate murder puzzle that’s part-Hitman, part-roguelite, and entirely sensational. There are few better ways to kill time.

Life is Strange: True Colors

Dan WebbSep 08, 2021
Life Is Strange: True Colors is a return to form for the franchise, which delivers a captivating story from start to finish, one that will see you go through all the emotions. Just like Alex Chen herself.

F.I.S.T.: Forged In Shadow Torch

PS4PS5

Richard WalkerSep 06, 2021
An engaging 2.5D platforming adventure with rich visuals and furry creatures, F.I.S.T.: Forged In Shadow Torch has all of the right ingredients you'd expect from any good metroidvania, as well as a few tricks of its own. It's certainly one of the most enjoyable games featuring a rabbit with a huge metal fist I've ever played.

Sonic Colors: Ultimate

Xbox One
7.00
Richard WalkerSep 06, 2021
A fine remaster of a good 3D Sonic game, Sonic Colours: Ultimate delivers speedy thrills aplenty, with its rainbow of Wisps injecting a smart twist to platforming. With more than enough replay value to keep you coming back, Sonic Colours: Ultimate will last far beyond its initial 4-5 hour runtime and slake your thirst for speed.

The Medium

PS5
7.00
Richard WalkerSep 02, 2021
While Blair Witch demonstrated that Bloober could resurrect a dormant movie license to great effect, and Observer saw the studio successfully turn its hand to cyberpunk horror. The Medium is a similarly excellent game, serving as further proof of the developer's horror expertise and its credentials as an exciting creative outfit.

Psychonauts 2

PS4
8.50
Matt LorriganAug 25, 2021
We may have been waiting a decade and a half for a sequel, but Double Fine’s efforts haven’t been in vain - Psychonauts 2 is an energetic, imaginative, and excellent 3D platformer, with brains and heart to spare.

Ghost of Tsushima Director's Cut

PS4PS5
9.10
Richard WalkerAug 19, 2021
Cementing its status as one of the best games on PlayStation, Ghost of Tsushima: Director's Cut makes a great game even better, its Iki Island chapter in particular providing even more of a very good thing. Utterly essential.

Hades

PS4PS5
9.00
Richard WalkerAug 16, 2021
Hades is an excellent action game that allows players to find progression even in death. Roguelikes are normally known for their high level of difficulty, but in Hades, the greatest challenge you’ll face is trying to put it down.

Greak: Memories of Azur

PS5
5.50
Richard WalkerAug 13, 2021
It looks lovely and plays well enough, But Greak: Memories of Azur is hamstrung by awkward puzzles, maddening boss battles, and annoying backtracking that'll have you rolling your eyes out of their sockets.

The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles

PS4
8.00
Matt LorriganJul 26, 2021
The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles struggles with some pacing problems, but its expressive characters, unique setting, and interesting cases means there’s no objection when it comes to recommending the game for fans of the Ace Attorney series, or those looking to get involved for the first time.

F1 2021

PS4PS5
9.00
Richard WalkerJul 12, 2021
The best thing about F1 2021 – much like many of the other entries in the series to date – is that it's all things to all Formula One fans. It's as simple and accessible, or, indeed, as challenging and granularly detailed, as you see fit. If you want the test of endurance provided by a full race, complete with tyre and pit strategies, shorn of assists and time-rewinding flashbacks, with manual gear shifting, then, by all means, fill your fire-retardant racing boots.

SCARLET NEXUS

PS4PS5
7.50
Richard WalkerJun 30, 2021
Going rather heavy on its convoluted, nutty storyline, Scarlet Nexus delivers on all fronts as far as its combat is concerned, with fast, flexible action that's always a joy. Bandai Namco's game is certainly bizarre, but it's also unique and well worth playing - it's the best Brain Punk game ever made.

Dungeons & Dragons: Dark Alliance

PS4PS5
5.50
Richard WalkerJun 21, 2021
Boasting solid combat marred by a woolly lock-on system and repetitive objectives, Dungeons & Dragons: Dark Alliance is, nonetheless, a mostly enjoyable hack 'n' slash adventure that's best played in co-op.

Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart

PS5
8.90
Matt LorriganJun 08, 2021
Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart is an incredibly tight, well-paced, spirited action-platformer, wrapped up in the eye-popping visual spectacle afforded by the PlayStation 5. It may make few changes to the core Ratchet & Clank formula, but, to be honest, it doesn’t need to.

Ghosts 'n Goblins Resurrection

PS4
7.50
Richard WalkerMay 28, 2021
An endearing and impeccably-made reboot of a Capcom classic, Ghosts 'n Goblins Resurrection not only looks really good, but it doesn't compromise on any of the aspects that made the original so special.

BIOMUTANT

PS4
6.50
Matt LorriganMay 24, 2021
Biomutant is a scrappy and charming open world RPG, but despite its many systems and gameplay mechanics, there isn't enough depth and direction to make this game truly great.

Mass Effect Legendary Edition

PS4PS5
9.00
Richard WalkerMay 17, 2021
If you've never played a Mass Effect game before, you can consider purchasing the Legendary Edition an absolute no-brainer. If you fancy revisiting BioWare's seminal sci-fi saga (and frankly, why wouldn't you?), then, equally, Mass Effect Legendary Edition is essential. Bottom line: you need this.

Call of the Sea

PS4PS5
8.00
Richard WalkerMay 11, 2021
A thoroughly enjoyable first-person adventure brimming with mystery, intrigue and intricate, well-thought-out puzzles, Call of the Sea is a journey into the unknown that proves both rewarding and memorable.

Hood: Outlaws & Legends

PS4PS5
4.50
Richard WalkerMay 11, 2021
Hood: Outlaws & Legends takes a unique 4v4 multiplayer premise and fails to do it justice. While the art style is cool and the concept is neat, the execution falls short with a lack of content, balancing issues, and a slew of frustrating elements.

Resident Evil Village

PS5Xbox Series X
6.00
Richard WalkerMay 05, 2021
The execution is severely fudged, the pace is drastically uneven, the set-pieces are routinely ludicrous, some moments are unintentionally hilarious, and the only sign of restraint or subtlety of any kind is in the excellent dollhouse segment, which is over all too soon. The rest of Resident Evil Village is emblematic of Capcom letting its id run wild, forgetting that great horror often lies in what you don't see, rather than the big monster screaming directly into your face.

Returnal

PS5
9.10
Matt LorriganApr 29, 2021
Returnal is an essential addition to the PlayStation 5 library, offering up sharp gunplay, challenging combat and an engaging narrative, all wrapped up in an atmosphere so dense that you risk getting lost in it.

NieR Replicant ver.1.22474487139...

PS4
7.00
Richard WalkerApr 22, 2021
A welcome revamp to a more than decade-old cult classic, NieR Replicant ver.122474487139... will be equally inviting to Automata fans, NieR veterans, and newcomers alike. Only a lack of variety, a lightweight combat challenge, and disappointing boss encounters put a downer on proceedings.

Disco Elysium: The Final Cut

PS5
8.50
Dan WebbApr 15, 2021
Despite the bugs, the wonky controls and obvious issues, Disco Elysium – The Final Cut still manages to be an utterly brilliant video game. One that is dark, twisted, enigmatic, enthralling and an absolute pleasure to lose yourself in. It could have just used a couple more months in the oven.
