    World War Z has a great gameplay hook, but it unfortunately lacks the variety needed to keep it engaging past the first few hours.

    Dragon’s Dogma stands the test of time and is excellently recreated on Switch.

    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.

    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.

    Mortal Kombat 11 isn’t just a fantastic entry into this long running franchise, it’s a stunning example of how much value and content developers can pack into the fighting game genre.

    Time will tell whether or not Space Junkies can stand the test of time, ideally maturing into a game that can live up to the games it borrows from. As of right now, Space Junkies is at the very least, is a must try for owners of the PSVR headset.

    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.

    Final Fantasy X/X-2 make for a lovely addition to the Switch’s library – a touching experience for new and old players.

    My Time at Portia forces players to figure out the game’s features before they can truly appreciate them.

    Cuphead is a great addition to the Switch library, it’s also a game that just feels right at home on a Nintendo platform, thanks to its colourful aesthetics and old-school difficulty. I can’t recommend the game enough, even for those players who may have already played the title during its initial release on other platforms.

    Grave Keeper fits well with a free-to-play model but adds nothing to justify its new cost.

    Super Dragon Ball Heroes: World Mission has all the strategy and complexity of a TCG beautifully mixed with the blood pumping tension of a fun multiplayer arcade game.

    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.

    Hypnospace Outlaw’s 90’s tinted internet exploration is spot on, but may be too specific for players who were not around to experience that particular time.

    From the moment you activate boost for the first time, Dangerous Driving roars to life with a speed and vision that I’ve sorely missed. Dangerous Driving is a good game, one that brings a smile to my face every time I slam a rival into the median. Three Fields has created something special here, and I can’t wait to see how they’ll improve upon it in the future.

    Generation Zero is a beautiful, broken, and boring jog through 1980s Sweden with a side of stealth and robots.

    Tropico 6 is the realization of what I’ve wanted from this series for years now.

    Like a Pop-Up Book, Crafted World is creative and fun, but only paper-thin.

    It’s still a FromSoft game, and it feels like one, from the familiar fonts and dialogue to fast-travel options and epic boss fights, but it’s both fresh and familiar, and still as challenging and mysterious as its predecessors.

    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.

    Fate/Extella Link improves upon Fate/Extella: The Umbral Star in nearly every way, even if it still struggles in many areas.

    RollerCoaster Tycoon Joyride is a game that fails in delivering anything that remotely resembles what made the series good in the first place, instead, players are left with a hollow husk of a game that feels unfinished and rushed.

    Baba is You is a delightful puzzle game filled with absurd solutions and situations, asking players to discard what they think they know about games to solve them.

    One Piece: World Seeker, apart from a select few elements, is tedious. The basic gameplay loop has nothing special going for it, and none of the elements that make One Piece special do anything other than highlight just how bland the game is as a whole. One Piece at its best is full of joy, surprises, and most of all, a sense of adventure, all of which are sorely lacking here. Trust me when I say that even the most die-hard One Piece fans should look elsewhere.

    Claybook provides a soothing sandbox experience that is only hampered by the lack of variety in premade levels currently on offer by the community.

    In concept, Left Alive could have had the potential to bring about the revival of Front Mission and fill the void left by the absence of Metal Gear at the same time, but none of its elements click to become a cohesive whole.

    Devil May Cry 5’s risk-averse approach grounds it as other games in the genre are reaching for the sky.

    Stellaris: Console Edition has a long way to go to catch up to the PC version, but its intuitive controls make it a compelling strategy game on consoles nonetheless.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Dead or Alive 6’s buried and yet still aggressive fanservice will no doubt alienate potential newcomers and at the same time, its lack of content will frustrate returning players.
    • 79 Metascore

    Trials Rising, another excellent racing platformer hybrid, is bogged down slightly by an ugly loot box economy and an unnecessary leveling system.
