    A few insignificant nitpicks aside, this is a prime example of a modern slasher, a crown jewel of this genre, a new definitive killer app for PlayStation 4.

    Last year, I called Crusader Kings 2 the best game that Paradox had ever produced. Now it is joined by Europa Universalis 4.
    • 93 Metascore
    • 95 Critic Score
    Epic, beautiful, clever, melodic, riveting game. Right now, it has just a few small (hopefully temporary) flaws, and absolutely no rivals on the horizon.

    Bayonetta 2 is nothing less than the best game in its genre, and it’s a solid reason to buy a Wii U.

    The gods of fighting games love those who are strong and stylish, and that’s what CPEX is all about.

    It took CD Projekt RED three attempts to create an epic masterpiece. You will laugh, feel sorrow, and reflect on important matters in-between killing hundreds of monsters in a spectacular fashion. You will embark on a long, wild adventure tempted by the myriads of tantalizing “?” signs scattered across the map. In other words, I know what you’ll be doing this summer.

    I fell in love with Team Fortress 2 because in that game, you win by being smart and considerate instead of quickly sniping off everyone you see. Overwatch improves on this concept tenfold.

    The most amazing thing about this criminal saga is not only its scale, but that it perfectly works on several levels. Spine-tingling driving, fun missions, excellent dialogue, fully fleshed characters, vicious satire on pretty much everything… One play-through is not enough to appreciate GTA 5 in all its multi-layered glory.

    Persona 5 took the best parts of its predecessors and carefully evolved them without making any earth-shattering changes. The result is a more or less traditional Japanese RPG, but it’s so good that I’m ready to go on a limb and declare it one of the best JRPGs of the decade. If not *the* best.

    It’s neither a revelation nor a reimagining of the good old series, just a really, really fun platformer without the usual drawbacks of this genre.

    Blood and Wine should be used as an interactive workshop for other developers to show them how to create awesome game expansions.

    Battlefield 1 is an exemplary multiplayer shooter and, looks like, the only decent game about World War I in the entire history of the FPS genre.

    This unusual action game set in an offbeat world created by Taro Yoko is a treasure trove of pleasant surprises. It's not often that we meet such a stylish, offbeat, memorable game.

    • 90 Critic Score
    Creating a fun fighting game is akin to art. Only the select few have mastered this art form to perfection over the decades: Katsuhiro Harada, Daisuke Ishiwatari and NetherRealm’s Ed Boon.

    Sons of Abraham integrates into the original game so seamlessly that it feels like it has always been there.

    This game will charm you as soon as you will see its loading screens and listen to first heavy metal chords of its awesome soundtrack.

    Yes, you can nitpick Prey's ending, uneven shooter mechanics and voice-over volume. But it won't change a thing, because Prey is amazing.

    Shadow Tactics: Blades of the Shogun follows the gold standard of this sub-genre set by the Commandos series: big maps that feel alive, different playable characters, each with their own strengths and weaknesses, and lots of ways to complete a level.

    Last year, Expeditions: Conquistador and Shadowrun Returns proved that Kickstarter can help create a good RPG. But The Banner Saga is not just good – it’s amazing.

    Basically, it’s the second full-length movie based on South Park, now fully interactive. Even bigger, longer and uncut.

    The first expansion to The Witcher 3: Wild Heart is hands down the best expansion of this year.

    It would have been cool if every nation added in The Old Gods got the same detailed treatment as the ones from the Legacy of Rome expansion, but still, this is a fascinating journey into the unforgiving Dark Ages.

    Road Not Taken is an endless stream of puzzles and a mysterious world which you just can’t stop exploring. Every new secret you solve brings up new exciting questions.

    To master all the missions and complete all levels of difficulty is a challenging, but riveting task. That’s why Into the Breach is worth playing over and over; just like chess, you play it not just to win the game, but to experience the process and see new situations unfold.

    Aftermath is the best out of all Battlefield 3 DLCs. Its maps tend to favor infantry, but the experience is as tense as ever.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Originality, tactical depth, variety — you’ll find them plenty in Crypt of the NecroDancer. ‘90’ is not only a score but the minimum amount of hours you’ll spend obsessing over this game.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 88 Critic Score
    Hearts of Iron 4 in one word is "optimization". There is now proper gameplay mechanics instead of duct-taped hacks and artificial restrictions seen in previous installments; the AI, freed from dozens of scripts, now thinks and acts on its own, while the game itself is more accessible and comprehensible, but still offers the same depth.
    • 81 Metascore

    At first glance, The Age of Decadence is a walking dinosaur, but awesome RPGs like this are too rare to ignore them.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 88 Critic Score
    Fisher’s annoyingly sulky character, questionable controls when it comes to grabbing people next to doors, traditionally daft ending level and the buggy Uplay services – these are pretty much all the sins of Blacklist. They can be easily forgiven because the rest of the game is stealth action goodness.
    • 79 Metascore

    Rainbow Six: Siege is a smart, truly unique action game.
