    The Oregon Trail has been brought to the modern day with mindfulness and a wide-breadth of enhanced gameplay.

    Dragon Quest Treasures is an interesting action game that tries something new for the series in a mostly successful game.

    Bendy and the Dark Revival drowns in its own basic black and white design for survival horror, but manages to amaze players with a more confident sequel to a unique nightmarish satire on all things Disney.

    There was a lot of replayability factors in Floodland I loved, and a strong political message. If you love micromanagement games, this had a treasure-trove worth of content.

    The Callisto Protocol is a competent survival horror game but a poor man's Dead Space, making it only worth it for those diehard fans of the genre.

    If you've ever played a Final Fantasy VII title, this is an essential experience.

    A great leap forward for Criteron and easily the best title in the series in years.

    The Knight Witch is an easy to recommend entry in a genre loaded with fans who may want to try something different, but also a good starter title for those looking to get acquainted with 2D action games.

    Pokémon Scarlet and Violet manages to be a fun adventure in spite of numerous technical issues thanks to great open world design.

    Visually, the game has a minimalistic style, a chibi style that isn’t the most original but works for something of this scale. It utilizes a wide pallet of bright colours to create an environment that is fun and inviting. I was genuinely surprised that Feritella was fully voiced, and it’s genuinely well done. There isn’t a lot of music in the game, but what’s on offer is whimsical and suits the fantasy setting.

    Harvestella is a fresh take on life-sims that wears many different hats well, but doesn’t always know when to wear them.

    If you loved the other Dark Pictures anthology games, The Dark Pictures: The Devil In Me contained its core essence, and continues to innovate new ways to keep players interested.

    Evil West is a must play title for fans of action-adventure games that want a solid narrative with even better combat.

    Weighed down by a weak and predictable revenge plot, impossible-to-miss visual glitches and gameplay bugs, and stingy restrictions that prevent players from using any their owned equipment in matches, the Bloody Ties DLC drains much of the fun out of what makes Dying Light 2 great.

    Sonic Frontiers may not be the best game released this year, but it is one of the best 3D Sonic titles released in recent memory and should not be missed by fans of the series.

    Pentiment is a vibrant adventure that fully embraces its time period, artistic style, and sense of mystery. It’s methodical pacing and focus on dialogue won’t appeal to everyone, but Pentiment knows what it wants to be and does it exceptionally well.

    Atari 50: The Anniversary Celebration is a monument to the gaming industry, and with new titles is an easy recommend for Atari and Video Game history fans.

    Doraemon Story of Seasons: Friends of the Great Kingdom is a great game and an even greater collaboration between iconic franchises.

    Lords and Villeins is anything but a simple sim game. Strategy is key or your town will suffer. It is an easy game to get completely lost, but its already active community speaks wonders for the longevity of the game.

    Tactics Ogre: Reborn is a pilgrimage for strategy RPG enthusiasts, an outstanding update for a watershed moment in the genre.

    A Little to the Left is another great indie game from Day of the Devs. With addictive puzzles and cozy charm, I really look forward to the Nintendo Switch release to play snuggled up in bed.

    Potionomics is a genuinely unique take on the sim genre that blends strategy with fun, and bolsters it with lovable and engaging characters.

    With vivid environments and incredible acting, God of War Ragnarök is the sequel that we have been waiting for.

    The Winters’ Expansion for Resident Evil Village breathes new life into an already top-notch survival horror ride with a strong story DLC, but other improvements for replayability don’t exactly push the game to its full potential.

    It Takes Two joins the Switch's growing library of excellent ports and offers players a version of the game that holds up on its own, considering the hardware limitations.

    Gotham Knights tries hard to escape Batman's shadow and still delivers a compelling full-length brawler, but feels assembled by basic action-adventure with pieces that feel all too dated.

    There is heart behind New Tales From The Borderlands, however in trying too hard to be like its predecessor, it really only succeeds at being an inferior imitation.

    Ultra Kaiju Monster Rancher won't set the world on fire with its monster breath, but fans of the source material will surely appreciate their time taming giants.
    • 69 Metascore

    Star Ocean: The Divine Force is a solid JRPG that straddles two worlds in more ways than one, resulting in a worthwhile yet middling adventure with decent replay potential.
