Battlefield 2042

PC
5.00
David MorganNov 22, 2021
Battlefield 2042 works against itself in almost all aspects of its design. Visually stunning maps are let down by boring level layouts and near-meaningless dynamic events. The game’s audio makes it actively annoying to play at times. Bugs and sluggish performance had me feeling like I needed to retire — that is until I booted up Halo Infinite and remembered that shooters are supposed to be responsive and tight.

Call of Duty: Vanguard

Xbox Series X
7.00
Eric HallNov 15, 2021
Call of Duty: Vanguard is another solid entry in the popular franchise, but far from an excellent one. The campaign struggles in the story department, but a good base of multiplayer options and a fun, if under developed, Zombies mode help save the day.

Jurassic World Evolution 2

PS5
9.00
Jon HueberNov 08, 2021
Jurassic World Evolution 2 changes the game in more ways than one, letting players spend less time creating parks and attractions and more time reacting to a world where dinosaurs already exist.

Shin Megami Tensei V

Switch
7.00
Cheyenne ClarkNov 04, 2021
It's not winning any awards for graphics, but Shin Megami Tensei V is a well-designed JRPG that has just a little too much combat. Even with such an interesting story and themes to explore, it instead focuses on grinding and fighting the same enemies over and over.

Tales of Arise

PS5
9.00
Jon HueberOct 29, 2021
There’s so much to do with story quests, side missions, and material gathering, that Tales of Arise will be taking up residence on my PlayStation 5 hard drive for the foreseeable future. As the summer ends and fall begins, I’m enjoying the heck out of a neo-classic JRPG and it just feels like old times again. Finally.

Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy

Jon HueberOct 25, 2021
Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy takes the action RPG and draws from both the films and comics to create a stunning gaming experience. With humor, an amazing soundtrack, and stellar gameplay, this is one of the best team-based comic book games ever.

NHL 22

PS5
7.00
Jon HueberOct 21, 2021
It's odd that it took EA this long to bring their flagship Frostbite engine to their NHL franchise, but now that it's here in NHL 22, the wait was certainly worth it, as the game has never looked or played better.

The Dark Pictures Anthology: House of Ashes

Xbox Series X
7.00
Eric HallOct 21, 2021
Although it may lack the over-the-top thrills of previous entries, House of Ashes is perhaps the best entry in The Dark Pictures Anthology to date. The cast of characters is strong across the board, and the story boasts a satisfying conclusion previous titles struggled to provide.

Back 4 Blood

PC
6.00
David MorganOct 20, 2021
At every turn, Back 4 Blood frantically alludes to its superior predecessor, digging its own grave as it crumbles under the weight of blasé characters and overly complex systems.

Metroid Dread

Switch
5.00
Autumn WrightOct 20, 2021
Metroid Dread can't commit to giving players an action-packed power fantasy or a suspenseful adventure against the odds. It's quick, short, and snappy -- all things that can be good when used right, but not at all what Metroid Dread set out to deliver.

Diablo II: Resurrected

Xbox Series X
8.00
Josh NicholsOct 04, 2021
Diablo II remains untouched from its original release outside of new graphics and quality of life changes, but that's mostly not a problem. It was ahead of its time back in 2000, and it's barely behind over twenty years later.

NBA 2K22

PS5
7.00
Jon HueberSep 27, 2021
NBA 2K22 is easily the most visually impressive sports game on new-gen consoles — to date — and it is stacked with so many fun things to do for both the hardcore and the casual basketball fan. Visual Concepts gives proper reverence to the stars of the past and highlights the young up-and-comers. Sure, the game stumbles in its attempts to create a more realistic on-court experience, but, as with all things, it gets better and easier to play with practice.

Death Stranding: Director's Cut

PS5
9.00
David MorganSep 23, 2021
Death Stranding Director’s Cut is an oddly named excuse to get addicted to delivering all over again. The visuals are stunning, but the haptics and new gadgets take things to even greater heights. Its themes have never been more relevant, and its gameplay never more fun.

Deathloop

PS5
8.00
David MorganSep 13, 2021
Deathloop, summarized, is "Arkane does Hitman." It glorifies its repetition, and never feels unrewarding, especially when taking down a player-controlled Juliana. I want to re-immerse myself in its world, pick apart its secrets, and master its systems. Not everything works seamlessly, but taken as a whole it's an immersive sim sandbox of unmatched proportions.

Aliens: Fireteam Elite

PCPS4PS5Xbox OneXbox Series X

Jon HueberAug 23, 2021
Aliens: Fireteam Elite (finally) proves that a great game based on the Alien films is possible in the modern era. A solid story, amazing action, deep customization, and intense battles make this one of the best adaptations of the franchise to date.

Psychonauts 2

Xbox Series X
7.00
Eric HallAug 23, 2021
There’s still nothing quite like what Double Fine has created here, but as creative as their wacky universe is, the gameplay still feels stuck in the past. I’m still happy that this sequel became a reality, and I think if you’re a fan of the first game or a fan of the studio’s past work, you’ll enjoy your time with it. However, it feels like a bit of a missed opportunity to do something more unique with the genre.

Twelve Minutes

PC
7.00
David MorganAug 18, 2021
I enjoyed my time with Twelve Minutes, and it’s a uniquely original take on tropes that aren’t often combined, let alone to this effect. The writing is excellent, the characters believable, and while I was left slightly befuddled once I reached the end, it’s entirely possible I’m just too dumb to put everything together in my head. It’s sure to frustrate at times, but this is a mysterious adventure worth the roughly 30 to 50 loops it’ll take to unravel.

The Ascent

Xbox Series X
8.00
Josh NicholsAug 06, 2021
The Ascent is an essential experience for anyone that enjoys tight action-RPG combat or beautiful, neon-colored Blade Runner skylines. Go play this solo or with up to three other friends before its world becomes reality.

The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles

PS4
8.00
Eric HallJul 26, 2021
As Yakuza 0 did for that beloved franchise, so does The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles for its own. This pair of relatively new entries serve as the perfect entry point into the world of intense legal battles and even more intense reactions the Ace Attorney series is known for.

The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD

Switch
8.00
Josh NicholsJul 23, 2021
It still isn’t a perfect game, but nearly all of the game’s major issues have been addressed in the remaster. If you never played Skyward Sword, then it’s the perfect time to fly through its world. The story, presentation, and music are all that you’d expect from the franchise, and nearly all of the game’s problems have been addressed in Skyward Sword HD.

Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin

Switch
8.00
Jon HueberJul 14, 2021
Combining the best aspects of other genres and series, Monster Hunter Stories 2 offers up a charming reimagining of the franchise's tried-and-tested gameplay.

Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade

PS5
10.0
Jon HueberJul 06, 2021
Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade brings the storied game to the PlayStation 5 along with a new standalone adventure starring Yuffie, giving fans new insight into the story. It also makes the wait for the next full chapter all but unbearable.

Earth Defense Force: World Brothers

PS4
8.00
Todd RigneyJun 11, 2021
The latest Earth Defense Force spinoff is the perfect introduction to the series for your kids, your younger siblings, or anyone who's always wanted a more cartoony approach to alien extermination. It doesn't rewrite the EDF playbook or attempt too many new things, but it's still very much an Earth Defense Force game at its voxelized heart.

Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart

PS5
10.0
David MorganJun 08, 2021
Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart is a technical showcase, but it's also one of the finest 3D action platformers since Jak and Daxter. Insomniac consistently prove that the Ratchet & Clank series is a wellspring of potential, and they've delivered a complete experience that's as full of heart as it is surprises.

The Sims 4 Dream Home Decorator Game

PC
8.00
Cheyenne ClarkJun 07, 2021
The new Interior Decorator career in The Sims 4: Dream Home Decorator is more interactive than ever and provides a little something for everyone, but it's still a bit of a buggy mess. What this new pack lacks in gameplay, though, it makes up for it with beautiful furniture and build items.
