Disney Classic Games: Aladdin and the Lion KingXbox One
Nevertheless, it's hard to recommend. Die-hard fans of early 90s platforms have been finding their own ways to play these games for decades, and without a substantial display of additional features, it's hard to point to many reasons to purchase – except if you want a relatively easy achievement completion.
The Outer WorldsXbox One
Aiming for the stars worked admirably for Obsidian Entertainment with this fantastic sci-fi RPG. There are elements of Obsidian's earlier work, especially Fallout: New Vegas which will delight longtime fans. Yet The Outer Worlds excels most when it has fun within its own unique identity. The wealth of lore and world-building details could be a little overwhelming for brand new players, but a little confusion early on shouldn't stop anyone from taking The Outer Worlds for a spin.
Plants vs. Zombies: Battle for NeighborvilleXbox One
Neighborville is probably as far as PopCap can afford to push the Garden Warfare formula without losing its audience — the general look and sound of the world, its currenices and progressions, all could do with an overhaul. In the meantime though, its hard not to recommend Neighborville to those ready to revisit this strange universe — as well as new players intrigued to see why a feud between flowers and the undead remains unresolved after a decade.
FROSTPUNK: CONSOLE EDITIONXbox One
Frostpunk can be overhelming and would benefit from a longer tutorial, so it’s understandable if those new to the genre find it too tricky. But a well-conceived narrative and premise makes it worth picking up whether you’re new to the genre, or have years of city-building experience behind you.
Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon BreakpointXbox One
Ghost Recon Breakpoint is the reigning poster child for the late-generation live service game. There is more on offer here than most people could ever dream of playing unless you retired from all other games — and maybe your family and your job too. But players should measure their content in quality, not quantity. There’s still a lot of fun to be had in Breakpoint, but you’ll need friends or good co-op partners to see a lot of it. For solo players, the gameplay loop wears out fast and even the awesome Jon Bernthal can’t save the project’s clashing design principles.
