    Daemon X Machina is a great mech action game that’s comparable in quality to the best entries in the franchise it’s heavily inspired by.

    While occasionally caving under the weight of its ambition, Greedfall delivers a world worth exploring inhabited by characters and stories just as memorable.

    Remothered: Tormented Fathers on Switch needs to have CPS called on it.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    A brilliantly realized, brutal and bloody Metroidvania that is the next best thing to reading up on Catholic Martyrs while you whip yourself with a barbed cat-o-nine-tails.

    Iceborne is the definitive endgame of Monster Hunter World and a proper sendoff to the game that ignited a new generation of fans in the West to experience the series for the first time.

    Gears of War 5 bravely adds new mechanics to an aging series, but ends up being worse because of them.

    Torchlight II on the Switch is an excellent addition to its library of fun, multiplayer-oriented games for both new fans and those wanting to return to the world of Vilderan after an extended absence.

    Catherine: Full Body has more interesting things to say about relationships that are dragged down by a story too cynical to let it shine.

    Heave Ho is a fun multiplayer game that provides plenty of laughter – provided you play with three of your friends.

    The Dark Pictures: Man of Medan pales in comparison to Until Dawn in practically every way and only surpasses it in its amount of jankiness.
    • 78 Metascore

    “Faith” continues Life is Strange 2’s examination of a broken system to showcase a series at its most powerful.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A survival game that feels like a puzzle and plays a bit awkwardly. Overall, a brain-burning but enjoyable experience.
    • 87 Metascore

    Astral Chain is a fantastic character action game that reimagines the subgenre at its core with a completely original and immensely satisfying combat system.
    • 84 Metascore

    Control combines the best elements of Remedy’s third-person pedigree with a well-realized open world that any sci-fan will enjoy.

    Even having never played these specific games before, Grandia HD Collection ended up giving me a sense of nostalgia. Grandia may be one of the best examples of what a quality JRPG was during its era and still holds up to this day as a title which fans of the genre should experience. Grandia II might not stand the test of time as well as its predecessor does, but it is still worth checking out for its continued use of a nearly perfect battle system, especially for any fans of the first game.

    Oninaki has some good ideas, but they’re overshadowed by a weak story and tedious combat.
    • 87 Metascore

    Telling Lies is a game defined by the individual’s own terms and parameters, rewarding the wide spectrum of curiosity of anyone willing to put the time and thought into its mysteries.
    • 78 Metascore

    Remnant: From the Ashes is a surprisingly good combination of Gears of War-like third-person shooting with Souls-like difficulty.
    • tbd Metascore

    HORGIHUGH is a cute, approachable shmup with a loveable hero and some handy weaponry.
    • 74 Metascore

    Rad
    RAD is a gorgeous and addictive entry into the Roguelite genre with creative powerups and a groovy soundtrack.

    What Friday the 13th: The Game on Switch lacks in graphical fidelity, it makes up for in consistent fun.

    Puzzle and strategy game fans are guaranteed to enjoy their time with Quench. I can only, however, recommend the PC version of the game, as the Switch iteration, ultimately feels gimped in comparison.

    PC players craving a bit of horror during the Summer can’t go wrong with Silver Chains, that is, as long as they’re okay with something that ultimately comes as feeling a little familiar.

    Metal Wolf Chaos XD is the definition of a cult classic video game. While nothing the game does could ever be considered truly exceptional or innovative, somehow all of its absurd elements have combined to create something truly memorable.

    Age of Wonders: Planetfall excels thanks to an emphasis on customization that makes it stand out from the competition.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Wolfenstein: Cyberpilot is a short shallow experience that doesn't do anything new and isn't required playing for fans of the series.
    • 69 Metascore

    Wolfenstein: Youngblood feels less like the story-driven co-op shooter that it should have been, and more like a product made to cash in on the legendary IP.
    • 65 Metascore

    Kill la Kill: IF has done a lot of work to push the arena fighter genre forward, even if its story mode won’t build up new fans.
    • 89 Metascore

    In reinventing Fire Emblem for a new console generation, Three Houses doubles down on its philosophy of player choice, but neglects to make all choices equally valid.

    Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 is comfort food. It retains the multiplayer dungeon crawling and love of the source material that made the two previous titles enjoyable, but it also elevates the action just enough to make it better and more entertaining than what came before. Not all of it works as well as it should, yet it’s vision isn’t compromised by the missteps it makes. You’re going to have a good time when you play Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3. And sometimes, that’s all you really need.
