    In the penultimate addition to the Dark Souls series (the next DLC will be the last, and thus, the end of the series ' sure.. sure it will be'), we see From Software's usually brilliance peeking through, but the Painted World of Ariandal, while worthy of the Dark Souls name, just isn't their best work. I don't doubt for a second that the final DLC will knock the series out of the park in legendary fashion, but this first Dark Souls III expansion feels a little lost in the blizzard.

    Skylanders Imaginators on the Switch gives you full Skylanders fun on the go, but there's something missing to the experience when you simply scan each toy and then put it up on the shelf. It's great to be able to create your own Skylander, though, and to watch the character evolve as you discover new parts and gear on your adventures. Overall, it's a solid platformer-action/RPG lite hybrid that makes for a nice early addition to your Switch library.

    Completing the same type of mission over and again does wear on you. Still, there is fun to be had with Wildlands before the feeling of repetition sets in.

    It doesn't bring anything new to the table past the usual Warriors style gameplay, so if you're both a Berserk fan and a Musou fan you'll get the most out of it.

    You'll certainly get your money's worth out of the game in terms of gameplay, and if, like me, you've never played a Yakuza game before, Yakuza 0 is an excellent opportunity to see what you've been missing.

    Nioh has a lot to offer with its deep combat system, and it's an overall addicting action game for fans of Ninja Gaiden and Dark Souls.

    Overall the enjoyable aspects of the game outweigh its flaws, and I enjoyed the game. At its core it is a jigsaw puzzle game, so if that's not your thing Glass Masquerade won't have anything to offer you. If you do enjoy jigsaws, though, it's easy enough to recommend the game based on the artwork alone.

    Builders is a very solid title with the perfect mix of genre-bending to make it unique.

    If you're a fan of RE games then be sure to pick up RE7 since it has a feel that suits both old and newer fans of the series. It has the survival horror of the older games and the intensity of the newer games combined into a new first person style of gameplay. The survival feel doesn't get out of hand to where it feels overwhelming and the intense feel doesn't get too heavy on the action - it's just a nice blend of the two. RE7 provides a truly refreshing feel for RE and one that I hope Capcom sticks with for future games in the main series.

    It's a shame that the battles can so often be frustrating in the game, because everything else about it is enjoyable. The hand-drawn artwork is fantastic, the video game references enjoyable, and the story a lot of fun. However, unless you have a high tolerance for frustration it's doubtful that the game's positives will be enough to drive you to play it all the way through.

    The BioShock games are one of the top series in gaming, and if you haven't played these games before you owe it to yourself to pick up this collection. Even if you have, it is worth your time to revisit them and play your way through them again. I found that I picked up on new elements and some of the more subtle aspects of the stories the second time through, giving me a greater appreciation for how well-crafted the stories are.

    Overall, this collection is recommended more for those who missed these games the first time around. Keep in mind, though, that you'll be playing the games more for the story than the gameplay. It's hard to put up with some of the frustrations of the controls and the limitations of the game worlds when things have come so far in the series since these games were first released. If you've played them all before, there's not a compelling reason to return unless you're an Assassin's Creed completist or the series is among your absolute favorites.

    There are some things to like about Steep, particularly its open world approach to snow sports, but it doesn't quite all gel well together. If you're looking for a snowboard stunt game, then you should pass on Steep because that's not the focus of the game. On the other hand, if you enjoy snow sports, then it's worth checking out. You'll have enough fun exploring the large amount of terrain contained in the game that you'll get your money's worth from it before it reaches the point where it begins to feel played out.

    If you don't already have UMvC3 then I'd highly recommend this release since it's still a fantastic fighter. Even with the unbalanced characters, it's still loads of fun to mess around with. The single player and local play works great but if you plan on going online, you need to go to training and practice the game with input lag (it's actually an option to practice with a simulated lag) since you can't play without input lag online with its current netcode.

    Overall, Pinball FX2 VR delivers an enjoyable pinball experience. I can't really say that you absolutely have to upgrade to VR if you already play Zen Pinball 2 on the PS4, especially if you've invested in a lot of extra tables for the game. Conversely, it's one of the more enjoyable titles I've played on PSVR, so if you're looking to expand your VR game library it's definitely worth a look.

    Overall I found the game deeply fascinating, engrossing, and thoroughly enjoyable, and it comes highly recommended to fans of action games.

    Xenoverse 2 is a noticeable step up from the original and, even though its clich�, is a Dragon Ball fan's dream title. Between this and Fusions, the Dragon Ball series is on a win streak and I can't wait to see what's next.

    Any gamer that hasn't had the chance to experience BioShock should heavily consider grabbing a copy of the collection. For starters it comes with all three games, including DLC, and is easily some of the best, unique, and memorable experiences in FPS gaming in the last ten years. For those that have played the series, you will probably have a high school reunion reaction like I did. You'll see new faces (better graphics), potentially new things to talk about (behind the scenes look at the creation of BioShock and playing all DLC you may have missed), or avoiding it completely.

    Dead Rising 4 does the series justice in many ways, but the game gets dragged down by some very noticeable shortcomings that deter from the usual Dead Rising experience.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 78 Critic Score
    Overall, it's disappointing that the campaign is so much shorter than that of Taken King. Outside of that, you get about the same amount of new content with Rise of Iron that you did with Taken King. Taken King felt like more of an expansion, though, perhaps because the Dreadnaught was significantly different than any other zone in the game, while the Plaguelands feel like an extension of the Cosmodrome. For an expansion that costs as much as a new game, Rise of Iron doesn't deliver enough content that is truly fresh and new. Destiny players will enjoy some of the new content, but will probably be left feeling like there should have been more to Rise of Iron.

    What Titanfall 2 boils down to is the kind of experience that you are looking for. I already had somewhat of a salty opinion from what I had seen of the first game although I also had no idea what to expect. I was pleasantly surprised and was blown away within the first hour of playing. Each day I went to work I couldn't wait to come home and play more.

    Exile's End starts out as a promising Metroid-style game with nods to older cinematic action games, but eventually turns into an overall mediocre experience.

    Infinite Warfare delivers an exciting single player campaign, with compelling characters and enjoyable new gameplay elements. The multiplayer side of the game is thoroughly enjoyable, even if overall it feels like an incremental improvement over Black Ops III.

    Early adopters may not even blink an eye at coming back for round 2 but for anyone just coming in they will have one of the best fighting games out there and a ton of unlockable content to look forward to.

    Dead Rising 2 still feels like such a great improvement over the original and with this remastered version, most of the technical issues from the past console versions have been fixed.

    In spite of my initial reservations, Battlefield 1 quickly won me over. It captures some of the brutality of World War I combat without getting bogged down in the trenches. The result is an exciting game that doesn't feel like all of the other modern shooter games out there.

    Overall, I had fun with my time with Titanfall 2. The single player campaign is a huge improvement over that in the original game, and although it starts slowly it does eventually come around and provide for some enjoyable gameplay. The multiplayer gameplay is a lot of fun, both as a pilot and at the controls of a Titan, but a lack of modes may ultimately hurt the game's longevity.

    A beautifully difficult heavy metal nod to 80s platforming.
