    Soundfall plays like an extended pop album, each level a three minute burst of music that initially fizzes and delights. Yet playing on repeat proves shallow. The music is killer, but the gameplay is filler.

    Ska Studios' sequel to Salt and Sanctuary offers a wonderful suite of combat customisation, but some shallow storytelling holds it back.

    You know that moment in a good roguelite where you've overextended yourself, but you've also won riches that you don't want to lose before you can bank them? This is what Loot River is built for, ultimately: I race around the world, dashing from one tile to another, breaking off from a little continent, an archipelago of burning wood and then searching, searching for the level's exit as I eye my tiny health gauge with fear. A procedural dungeon-crawler where you can rescramble the once-scrambled levels? Gary Chang would be proud. [Eurogamer Recommended]

    A dark RPG-strategy hybrid that's not without its pleasures, but tends towards numb repetition and becomes a slog.

    Occasionally turning subtext into text, Citizen Sleeper's real magic is found in the boundless warmth of its characters - and the humanity of its own design. [Eurogamer Recommended]
    • 81 Metascore
    • Critic Score
    A brutal but graceful and comprehensible mix of ideas from Warhammer, XCOM and Gears Tactics. [Eurogamer Recommended]

    Cellar Door adds more depth and plenty of new ways to enjoy its charming roguelike formula. [Eurogamer Recommmended]

    Nintendo returns to motion controls with a suite of sports that offer true delight. [Eurogamer Recommended]
    • 75 Metascore
    • Critic Score
    A deceptively goofy asymmetrical tactics game that feels as grand as any monster movie. [Eurogamer Recommended]

    Despite some added substance and structure, eFootball's good ideas are still buried beneath matchmaking issues, weird decisions, and major gameplay bugs. [Eurogamer Avoid]

    Despite some visual delights in its cybernoir, pixel-art vision of Singapore and some strong characters, Chinatown Detective Agency's let down by lightweight mechanics and bugs.

    Moss: Book 2 is without a doubt a game that deserves to be played, especially if you fell in love with the original. Its staggering beauty is reason enough to dust off your PSVR for one last adventure before the PSVR 2 comes out, even if I wouldn’t blame you for holding out in the hope of a PC VR or Quest release - or some kind of bundle for the launch PSVR 2. Both Moss games are as short and sweet as their mousey protagonist, but I feel like Quill is worthy and capable of going on an even more epic adventure. [Eurogamer Recommended]

    A serviceable restoration of one of the best and strangest games in Squaresoft's back catalogue. [Eurogamer Recommended]

    A seamless Star Wars storyline spread across a scattershot open galaxy.
    • 76 Metascore
    • Critic Score
    A bold, atmospheric yet dissatisfying ensemble RPG shooter, full of untapped promise.

    Norco is a beautiful, surprising, human, and utterly magnetic debut. [Eurogamer Recommended]
    • 84 Metascore

    Beneath Patrick's Parabox's minimalist surface are layers upon layers - a masterclass of simplicity and puzzling challenge. [Eurogamer Recommended]
    • 75 Metascore

    Mediocre combat and tiresome activities hold back Ghostwire: Tokyo's otherwise spectacular, otherwordly atmosphere.
    • 79 Metascore

    Despite an endearing commitment to its relentlessly positive tone, Tiny Tina's Wonderlands almost feels designed by a dice roll.
    • 85 Metascore

    Kirby's long anticipated move to 3D platforming sees the series step up to a new level of invention and wonder. [Eurogamer Recommended]

    Tunic turns its many influences into something that feels both familiar and gloriously new. [Eurogamer Essential]

    I almost have to admire the audacity of how blasé Square Enix is with its own history, and wonder how much of Stranger of Paradise was intended as comedy. Is it irreverence or just laxity? If you thought Final Fantasy 7 Remake took liberties with its source material, at least there seemed to be a purpose and intent behind it. Stranger of Paradise meanwhile feels like an ill-thought fanfic, given free rein to ransack the back catalogue.

    Dawn of Ragnarök is a generous new course for Valhalla's already enormous feast - but one which earns its place at the table. [Eurogamer Recommended]

    As a result of all this, despite its often glacial pace, Triangle Strategy is a dramatic, often engrossing tale of medieval conflict - and one that can sit proudly next to the games that inspired it. [Eurogamer Recommended]

    It's a sumptuous, arrestingly gorgeous thing that most importantly retains its enthusiast's heart under the graphical showcase, and that does its level best to make a car enthusiast out of anyone in its orbit. Is it the king of driving games once more? The genre's now too broad and too varied to make such a statement, though Gran Turismo finds itself a neat slot alongside the likes of Assetto Corsa and iRacing, presenting accessible driving that looks simply staggering. Is it the best that Gran Turismo to date? Of that there's no real doubt. [Eurogamer Recommended]

    Wonderful, lo-fi sounds and hand-crafted visuals make A Musical Story a clear a labour of love, sadly let down by its rhythm mechanics.
    • 81 Metascore

    Action-packed dungeons make Lost Ark's early stages a real romp, but without a convincing hook beyond the combat, things get a little stale.

    Elden Ring remains a glorious game, one that established fans are going to savour for some time to come, and one that may just welcome new fans into the FromSoft fold. Sumptuous visual design, dark and detailed lore and a vast-but-intricate open world are reason enough to venture out into the Lands Between. Add to that FromSoftware's unforgiving and unforgettable gameplay loop and this is something truly special. [Eurogamer Essential]

    Far: Changing Tides' story is a little longer and its puzzles more refined than its predecessor, while its world is as beautiful as ever. [Eurogamer Recommended]
