Scott Pilgrim vs. the World: The Game - Complete Edition

Switch

Ruby Spiers-UnwinJan 13, 2021
A unique arcade-style beat 'em up with an amazing soundtrack and gorgeous art style. A must-play for any fan of the Scott Pilgrim universe.

Oceanhorn: Chronos Dungeon

Despite its charming presentation, Oceanhorn: Chronos Dungeon is an undercooked roguelike dungeon crawler with poor combat and pacing.

STAR WARS: KOTOR II

Though it doesn't remaster the game, how can you improve upon perfection? Knights of the Old Republic 2 is still one of the best RPGs ever made, and now it's on your phone

COLLECTION of SaGa FINAL FANTASY LEGEND

Switch

Ruby Spiers-UnwinDec 18, 2020
A faithful recreation of the original Final Fantasy Legend titles. Perfect for fans looking for a nostalgia trip, but not a great first entry into the series for new players

Alba: A Wildlife Adventure tells a joyful tale with a deftly-handled message of conservation and rejuvenation

SteamWorld Quest

Jon MundyDec 11, 2020
A brilliantly rendered, deceptively involved card battler that simultaneously tips its hat and cocks a snoop at traditional RPGs

Sakuna: Of Rice and Ruin

Switch
7.00
Ruby Spiers-UnwinDec 11, 2020
Sakuna: Of Rice and Ruin can be confusing to start with, but getting past the initial hardships opens up beautiful levels and satisfying gameplay

DOOM Eternal

Switch

Glen FoxDec 10, 2020
The Switch port of Doom Eternal is as good as it possibly can be, with portability making up for a drop in visual fidelity and framerate

Orwell's Animal Farm

Sean MartinDec 10, 2020
Animal Farm's struggle against cycles of corruption brilliantly captures the novella's sense of powerlessness, even if it does stick a little too closely to the source material at times

It’s also satisfying to unlock even more adorable characters as you play, along with new music, and stages. I would definitely recommend Puyo Puyo Tetris 2 to someone looking for a casual puzzle game they can easily pick and play for a few rounds.

Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon & the Blade of Light

Switch
6.00
Dave IrwinDec 08, 2020
If you're a Fire Emblem super-fan, this is the best version of the NES classic. For everyone else, the Nintendo DS remake or its Wii U port are far better.

John Wick Hex

Switch
7.00
Christian VazDec 04, 2020
It’s a shame the Nintendo Switch port couldn’t have utilised some of the unique handheld features like the touch screen. This type of support would’ve worked extremely well in a game like John Wick Hex, so it’s disappointing not to see the developers go the extra mile.

Commandos 2 - HD Remaster

Switch
8.00
Sean MartinDec 04, 2020
In general I think this is an excellent remaster, and if the PC version was plagued with bugs, then the developer has definitely gone out of its way to eliminate them here, as I didn’t experience any. I do think $29.99 might be a bit steep, but then again, can you put a price on nostalgia?

Empire of Sin

Switch
5.00
Dave IrwinDec 02, 2020
It’s currently not optimised well and the issues range far beyond what we were informed about. If you absolutely want a mafia management game on-the-go, then I’d give it a few months before buying.

Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night

AndroidiOS

Sean MartinDec 02, 2020
Bloodstained is an inventive twist on the Castlevania formula, but a lack of visual quality and control frustrations prevent this port from wholly doing it justice

Immortals: Fenyx Rising

Switch
8.00
Ben SledgeNov 30, 2020
Immortals Fenyx Rising offers a world that you can’t help but explore, with some truly impressive dungeon design. The game’s only let down is its simple puzzles and painful menu navigation.

Need for Speed Hot Pursuit Remastered

Switch
7.00
Ben SledgeNov 26, 2020
High speed chases and spectacular police take-downs provide plenty of thrills, but a lacklustre remaster, and a couple of annoying quirks let the arcade racer down.

Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity

Switch
7.00
Dave IrwinNov 23, 2020
Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity is a fantastic way to tide you over until Breath of the Wild 2, if you can forgive the dodgy frame rate and several other warts hidden within

The Pathless

iOS

Sean MartinNov 18, 2020
Though it treads old ground at times, stand-out action sequences and appealing simplicity make it hard not to enjoy The Pathless

Kingdom Hearts: Melody of Memory

PS4
7.00
Dave IrwinNov 16, 2020
It’s hard to know exactly who Kingdom Hearts: Melody of Memory is for. I suppose it’s for the Kingdom Hearts super-fans, who have likely picked it up already. But for everyone else, it’s quite an exclusionary game by design. Despite being the cliff-notes for the entire series so far, Melody of Memory is a half-decent rhythm game that’s bogged down by repetitive stage design.

Moonlighter

Sean MartinNov 14, 2020
Moonlighter is truly the sum of its parts, a brilliant combo of homely shop-keeping and dungeon-crawling depth

A3: STILL ALIVE

Dave IrwinNov 12, 2020
A3: Still Alive is a confused mess of a game that doesn't do anything particularly well.

Reigns: Beyond

Sean MartinNov 10, 2020
Though its rhythm component is a little lacklustre, Reigns: Beyond is still a great choice for anyone who wants a funny sci-fi take on the roguelike card genre

Seven Knights -Time Wanderer-

Switch
5.00
Glen FoxNov 06, 2020
Seven Knights foray into Switch territory has resulted in a JRPG that just doesn't fit well on the big screen, with technical and mechanical limitations marring a surprisingly fun, if basic, combat system

South of the Circle

Glen FoxNov 05, 2020
One of the best Apple Arcade games yet provides an intriguing combination of Firewatch, Neo Cab, and LA Noire, but ends up feeling like a creation all of its own
