    A passable port for a videogame that is best played elsewhere.

    Fallback will have you going back for more as you make your way through its tough but rewarding gauntlet.
    • 75 Metascore

    Deck13’s futuristic limb removal simulator is a solid but generic entry into the Soulslike genre.

    • 60 Critic Score
    Sayonara Wild Hearts’ is gorgeous and packs an incredible pop soundtrack, but the actual levels the music accompanies never feels as natural as its audiovisual splendor.

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

    Catherine: Full Body has more interesting things to say about relationships that are dragged down by a story too cynical to let it shine.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 55 Critic Score
    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.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A survival game that feels like a puzzle and plays a bit awkwardly. Overall, a brain-burning but enjoyable experience.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Oninaki has some good ideas, but they’re overshadowed by a weak story and tedious combat.
    • tbd Metascore

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

    What Friday the 13th: The Game on Switch lacks in graphical fidelity, it makes up for in consistent fun.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    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.
    • 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.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    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.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    While it’s very easy to see the elements that inspired SolSeraph, the game fails to capture why any of these memorable mechanics are worth revisiting or reinventing.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 55 Critic Score
    A clearly personal story told in a bland repetitive 3D platformer with padded gameplay, terrible voice acting, and no subtlety.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Persona Q2’s has a lot of fun dungeon crawling to offer, but doesn’t make the most of its great cast’s time together.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    When Trover Saves the Universe is funny, it’s VERY funny, but its humor is just not enough to carry such an average, unspectacular game.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 65 Critic Score
    Layers of Fear 2 is striking in its unsettling places, but is a looser experience than its predecessor, losing the player with busywork puzzles and winding corridors.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Sniper Elite V2 Remastered is a good remaster of an average third-person shooter.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 65 Critic Score
    Rage 2 takes Doom-like gunplay and puts in just another dull open world game that doesn’t do anything particularly memorable.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 55 Critic Score
    World War Z has a great gameplay hook, but it unfortunately lacks the variety needed to keep it engaging past the first few hours.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 65 Critic Score
    Days Gone is an above average open-world game that is brought down by a weak first act, poor shooting, and a lot of technical issues.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    In its current state, I can only recommend Jupiter & Mars for play in 2D, for those who were looking to exclusively play the title through PSVR, I recommend holding off till a sale.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Earth Defense Force: Iron Rain offers players with a nice change of pace from the hyper-connected and competitive nature of contemporary gaming, with a game that actually feels like a game.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 65 Critic Score
    My Time at Portia forces players to figure out the game’s features before they can truly appreciate them.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 65 Critic Score
    Grave Keeper fits well with a free-to-play model but adds nothing to justify its new cost.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Die-hards may love these new stories with their beloved cast, but anyone else may find Corpse Party: Sweet Sachiko’s Hysteric Birthday Bash’s story lacking and weak.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Like a Pop-Up Book, Crafted World is creative and fun, but only paper-thin.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    If you find this game’s story distasteful, especially considering the modern American political climate of misused government overreach, I really can’t blame you. Everything is political, it’s just that many don’t realize that things like the status quo or basic power fantasies fall into that category whether they like it or not.
