    ToeJam & Earl: Back in the Groove just feels like more of the original game sprinkled with some modern-day trimmings (rogue-lite progression, for example) that feel like an afterthought.

    RemiLore gets the mechanics for a fun dungeon crawler down, but does little to hold a player’s attention.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Deceptively simple and undoubtedly original, Ape Out’s fast and frantic jazz infused gameplay never loses sight of what videogames are really all about: having fun.

    Bannermen feels half baked and underfunded. It takes ideas from classics, but you’re really better off playing those again.

    Die-hard Atari fans probably already have the third volume of this compilation but for everyone else, they’re probably better off sticking to some of the earlier releases, which feature more familiar titles for the less initiated or casual player.

    Death’s End re;Quest has an interesting story to tell, but sometimes struggles with the ways it tries to tell it.

    With impeccable world-building and compelling exploration, Sunless Skies is a haunting journey that is worth traversing time and time again.

    Despite its myriad of issues, I still enjoyed the fun gameplay of Anthem and plan to revisit the game after it has developed a larger suite of content and events for me to experience.

    New Dawn’s post-apocalyptic landscape makes for a more focused version of the Far Cry package, which is great if you just want to kill time capturing outposts and hunting animals.

    If you liked the original Crackdown and want basically more of that, then you’ve found your game. If you want a modern first party AAA game, look elsewhere.

    Jump Force fails to hit the mark with a total lack of care in terms of everything outside of its decent fighting mechanics.

    I have some issues with Metro: Exodus. The larger story is completely off the wall ludicrous and makes everything that came before feel completely invalid. If I had been forced to live in a hole for 20 years, fight monsters and Nazis, and I was all a lie, I’m certainly not letting the people lying about it on my freedom train, much less call any shots. The smaller, more personal stories, however, often hit a little closer to home, and make life just a bit more interesting.

    With a level of polish unseen in the genre, Apex Legends is the best battle royale ever made.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Civilization VI: Gathering Storm makes Civilization VI feel complete, thanks mostly to the great new civs and small quality of life improvements.

    God Eater 3’s main draw is its flashy action, but only occasionally brings real challenge along with it.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    Dragon Marked for Death is a hot new Switch exclusive that combines Mega Man X, Castlevania, and the difficulty of Monster Hunter into one fun little game.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    With the series ending its run on the 3DS, Etrian Odyssey Nexus proves itself to be the strongest entry in the franchise yet.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    Last Year: The Nightmare is an admirable take on the asymmetrical survival horror genre, and despite not doing too many things outside of the box, the stellar presentation and level of detail throughout helps the game survive long enough to warrant the price of entry for fans of the genre.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Kingdom Hearts III is the biggest, boldest, flashiest entry in the saga—one that builds upon the gameplay systems of its forebears in a kaleidoscopic carnival of action RPG jubilance.

    Wargroove is a deeply engaging strategy game that has the potential to continue to thrive and develop for years to come with a dedicated playerbase of creators.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    While not quite a homerun, Battlefleet Gothic: Armada 2 is a fun, tactical space combat experience with some nice story to boot.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 55 Critic Score
    “Rules” feels like emotional torture porn without any of the thematic follow through to make it worthwhile.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    Aftercharge truly has the potential to be “the next big thing”, with all fundamentals of what makes a shooter great, but in its early days its clear there is still polish that could done to the overall experience.
    • 91 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    Resident Evil 2 excels at putting the player in close quarters with things that will upset and unsettle them, always drawing them into ever more tense, disturbing fights.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    Ultimately, Kingdom Rush: Vengeance provides players with a competent tower defense title that stands out from the saturated genre thanks to its colourful art style, quirky story beats and its role-reversal on good versus evil.
    • 84 Metascore

    For as great as Bowser’s Inside Story is, it does little to justify busting out the 3DS again.

    Ace Combat 7 marks the spectacular return of a franchise that has been gone for far too long.
    • 74 Metascore

    The Shrouded Isle may lack variety, but it’s strong management systems and creepy aesthetic make it a worthwhile experience.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Onimusha: Warlords is a somewhat rough but enjoyable adventure, making it worth revisiting.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes is a great game that perfectly captures what I personally love about indie experiences.
