    Metal Gear Online is fun in small doses as a back to basics approach to online shooters, though a lack of content will undoubtedly upset and annoy some.

    Assassin’s Creed Syndicate is not without its problems, but it turns out that putting two excellent protagonists in a brilliantly recreated city is all it takes to make us excited about the Assassin’s Creed series again.

    One of the standout games of the generation so far, Rise provides stunning setpieces, brilliant exploration and challenging puzzles. This is an Xbox One essential.

    If you're patient and able to get your head around a challenging set of rules, there's fun to be had with Blood Bowl 2. Otherwise, it's one that's only going to appeal when you're in the right mood. [Issue#130, p.84]

    Just don't expect to be blown away by its competent but uniformly forgettable local multiplayer component. [Issue#130, p.83]

    It's not awful, but splicing these two series together adds no value for fans of either one. It is both an inferior Walking Dead game and an inferior Escapists. [Issue#130, p.82]

    Despite some noble efforts to take Tony Hawk's back to its roots, Pro Skater 5 is ruined by glitches, sluggish movement and dull, lifeless levels. What might have been a glorious return ends up an unfortunate swan song. [Issue#130, p.78]

    The vehicle sections really drag this latest Skylanders down. It's a disappointing addition to the series. [Issue#130, p.77]

    Minecraft fans will adore it, Telltale fans will love it, those who like neither might find something to enjoy, and those who like both will literally explode with joy. [Issue#130, p.74]

    Finally, the great one is back - it looks cheap, but it plays exceptionally. [Issue#130, p.72]

    FIFA has PES beaten when it comes to attention to presentational detail and atmosphere, but maybe that isn't enough anymore. For flowing football, though, you should look elsewhere. [Issue#130, p.71]

    343 Industries is clearly passionate, but it’s shown a criminal misunderstanding of what makes the franchise work. Halo 5: Guardians has moments of greatness, but it’s a shadow of its former self.

    • 80 Critic Score
    Fallout 4 is a genuine achievement, an awesome wasteland survival simulator that suffers from familiar Bethesda problems. Clear your schedule, Fallout 4 will demand all of your spare time.

    There is so much to love about LEGO Dimensions; clever design decisions, an excellent script and some real standout moments. But that paywall will either kill your bank account, or frustrate you.

    There’s a lot of learning involved to make the most of Smite – and not enough done to introduce the more complicated elements – but as a competitive multiplayer game this is a game you really ought to try.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    An excellent playset, alongside a comprehensive and easy to use Toy Box makes this an essential purchase and proof that Disney really wants to beat the competition.

    The beautiful wasteland is incredible to drive around, but leave the Magnum Opus and the excitement dips. This is nearly excellent, but instead is frustrating.

    There are some foibles – notably the general attitude of the game – but there’s absolutely no denying Forza Motorsport 6 is a brilliant, deep, rewarding racing game.

    Fun in doses and has a great presentation, sadly, Tembo falters as Game Freak looked to increase the game length in the most obnoxious way possible. [Issue#128, p.81]

    A half-finished game. [Issue#128, p.80]

    Relies heavily on the work of its arguably better predecessors. [Issue#128, p.79]

    It suffers greatly from frustrating puzzle design. The jokes don't often land, either. [Issue#128, p.78]

    Fans of old King's Quest games will find much to enjoy, and several new additions make this new installment feel fresh and engaging. [Issue#128, p.77]

    An exceptionally well-crafted compilation, perhaps the best retro package ever. No matter whether you cut your teeth on the ZX Spectrum or Xbox 360, you’ll find something to love here.
    • 95 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A fantastic stealth action game that offers an insane amount of ways to play, just don't expect it to feel like your typical Metal Gear experience.

    The design flaws that held DMC4 back on release frustrate even more today, and even a raft of new content can't boost this to SSS status. [Issue#127, p.86]

    MotoGP 2015 has evolved, but it isn't the step up in class we were hoping for. [Issue#127, p.85]

    SteamWorld Dig's ramshackle caverns are a threat to traverse, and while Rusty's underground excursion is over a little too quickly, there are plenty of distractions to be found on the way. [Issue#127, p.84]

    Represents its sport well, but it's just too mundane to ever be something of note. One for the fans and very few others. [Issue#127, p.83]

    Spectra's a fine little racer that'll help kill time while you wait for a download. If just a couple of niggles had been ironed out and changed however, this could have been much better. [Issue#127, p.82]
