    Love is a warm but brief puzzle game about playing with time and fate and people's lives.

    Supermassive still knows how to plunge you into paranoia, but the second Dark Pictures entry feels a little lost in the woods.

    Like its many buried riches, Nintendo's Pikmin series remains a treasure ready to be rediscovered. [Eurogamer Recommended]

    Ghostrunner never loses sight of being about speed and agility, making it a constant joy to play. [Eurogamer Recommended]

    Kinetic action, beautiful, horrible pixel-art and a sense of place that stays with you - this is a dark treat. [Eurogamer Recommended]

    There's real magic at the heart of this brilliantly faithful AR take on Mario Kart, but a fair few caveats abound.

    An inventive platformer with an unforgettable sense of style and wit. [Eurogamer Recommended]
    • 75 Metascore
    • Critic Score
    Frictional returns with a subversion of horror tropes, though it's not quite the measure of other games in the series.
    • 76 Metascore
    • Critic Score
    A rock-hard procedural tinder box brimming with imagination and chaos. [Eurogamer Recommended]

    Savage satire that's backed up by some exquisite writing and fascinating mechanics. [Eurogamer Recommended]

    I Am Dead, with its ghosts, its world of objects, large and small, curiosities charged in some ways by the people who owned them, speaks to this very clearly, for me at least. It speaks of the ways that conversations with the dead go on. The way rituals and responsibilities take on new and perhaps confusing dimensions. More than anything it is a reminder of that bright contradiction - that death has absolutely everything to do with life. [Eurogamer Recommended]

    Fun football with plenty of goals, but the grubby business of selling loot boxes lets the side down.
    • 79 Metascore

    An immersive space sim that's dazzling in VR, Squadrons provides an exhilarating multiplayer experience, even if the story feels pedestrian. [Eurogamer Recommended]

    With some imperfections, Toys For Bob delivers an enjoyable, goofy, deviously challenging and occasionally genius sequel. [Eurogamer Recommended]
    • 79 Metascore

    A mostly thorough remake of 2002's original, Mafia: Definitive Edition has its moments - but it struggles by the standards of today.

    Like a playable poster for an iconic rally event, funselektor's top-down racer is a blast. [Eurogamer Recommended]
    • 74 Metascore
    • Critic Score
    A new classic of narrative and strategy, and a game with plenty of space for the player to enjoy themselves. [Eurogamer Recommended]
    • 82 Metascore
    • Critic Score
    A fascinating experiment in narrative techniques, even if there's some tonal whiplash along the way. [Eurogamer Recommended]

    Hades is a proper lark. I love it. But there is something else here, something that I have always felt about games but never been able to put into words. There is something about polished, smartly conceived Hades, about so many of Supergiant's games which, the joyous brilliance of Pyre aside perhaps, are always too rigorous, too responsibly conceived not to know exactly what spot they're going to fit into on the shelf, which pillars they're going to present to the press - there is something about these games that are so assuredly products that reminds me that games are never ever just products. Games are always a way of being. To play Hades, Roguelite aside, economy aside, loop aside, is to be furious and vengeful, to be driven by bitterness, self-hate, ennui, to be pulverisingly powerful and yet horribly efficient. This is the truth of it down to the controls, which encourage you to grip the pad by the facebuttons and squeeze and squeeze and squeeze like you're one stress ball away from telling your boss to shove it. This game comes from Hell, and it takes you back there, and it's brilliant. Get in. [Eurogamer Essential]

    Don't bother with PES 2021 if you can option file PES 2020, but if you're coming in fresh, PES 2021 is a decent shout at a decent price.

    Two of Nintendo's finest, and one of its most interesting, come together in a compilation that isn't worthy of their greatness.

    Enigmatic and unapologetic even in the face of its most absurd ideas, this is sometimes messy, sometimes boring, but always astounding. [Eurogamer Essential]

    Draknek masters a genre with a game of little touches, big challenge, and giant heart. [Eurogamer Essential]
    • 82 Metascore

    A stylish, dreamily wrought open-world detective adventure that dances masterfully on the edge of cosmic nightmare. [Eurogamer Recommended]
    • 79 Metascore

    An enjoyable and detailed racer successfully invokes the spirit of the 90s arcade, even if it doesn't quite have a spark of its own.
    • 67 Metascore

    As a live-service game, you can expect lots of tweaks and changes as the weeks morph into months, but having magpied so much from those kinds of games it's left with little identity of its own. Despite the promise of its campaign, its endearing cast and impressive voice work, Marvel's Avengers is an unoriginal and uninspired affair that falls sadly short of what it could have been - what it should have been.

    Inertial Drift has its quirks - that drift mechanic won't be to everyone's tastes, and I can imagine a fair few bouncing off this hard after they've spent one lap too many bouncing off walls, while the lack of clipping in competitive races can also seem a little odd. Personally, though, I get why you're allowed to drift through other racers like they're ghosts. Inertial Drift is about you and the road, pure and simple. It's about placing this novel twin stick drifting in your hands and letting you explore its nuances, and exploit the potential in each car and each apex until you edge further up the leaderboard. It's just about the most stylish, thrilling racer I've played in an absolute age. [Eurogamer Recommended]

    Taking a healthy dose of inspiration from Ridge Racer Type 4, Inertial Drift is a unique arcade racer with an exquisite core mechanic.
