    An enjoyable blend of story, puzzle-solving, and the ever-looming threat of spectacular, expensive failure keeps you coming back for more in Hardspace: Shipbreaker.

    If you are really passionate about World War II shooters, are a dedicated Sniper Elite fan, or just really need to shatter some vertebrae with bullets, this could be worth a look. For everyone else, it’s probably better to set your sights elsewhere.

    Is it actually fun to be a vampire? Let's find out together, in the latest attempt to export Vampire: The Masquerade to video games.

    Chaos Gate Daemonhunters is an intensely challenging XCOM-like that fully embraces the aesthetic and tendencies of the Warhammer 40K universe.

    Citizen Sleeper crafts a gorgeously written and thoughtfully conceptualized Cyberpunk world using RPG mechanics inspired by the best in tabletop gaming.

    Rogue Legacy 2 is a worthy sequel that improves upon almost every aspect of the original, adding a wide array of new classes, abilities, and content.

    We Were Here Forever has some good ideas but stumbles into unbalanced puzzles that leave one player standing around and sounding like Darth Vader in their walkie-talkie.

    Eiyuden Chronicle: Rising is a charming if tedious RPG that probably shouldn't have been an RPG.

    Salt and Sacrifice is a labor of love, one that will scratch any Souls veteran's itch for more mysterious worlds to explore, even if it doesn't succeed at everything.

    Nintendo Switch Sports is a great way to satisfy any urge to play motion control games. Unfortunately, it doesn't make any effort at being more than that.

    Trek to Yomi is a gorgeous samurai adventure with satisfying 2D action and some unfortunately frustrating quirks.

    Return to the world of Eldest Souls with the Depths of the Forgotten DLC, a worthy continuation of a good, sometimes great, boss rush Souls-like hybrid.

    Chernobylite's next-gen upgrade makes it the best version of the game on consoles, even if it still suffers from a vein of inconsistency.

    Ever thought you could do better fending off an attack from a giant monster? Kaiju Wars lets you put your money where your mouth is in this 50s retro movie-inspired game.

    The Force Unleashed on Switch is a good port of a rather dreary game by today's standards.

    MLB The Show 22 is a solid entry in the series, but it's largely the same game as last year, for better or worse.

    The great things that Elex 2 brings to the table are overshadowed by what a buggy, buggy mess it is.

    LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga still has some of the Lego charm, but it's a step back for the series.

    Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands is an excellent spin-off that adds its own twists to what makes Borderlands great.

    The faithful remake of this light-gun classic only serves to highlight how bare bones it is by today's standards.

    Gran Turismo 7 strikes the perfect balance between accessibility and realism in a way that caters to casual players and veterans. It's a gorgeous racing game with a surprisingly addictive gameplay loop thanks to the new Café and Menu Books systems. While some modes are certainly not as strong as others, Gran Turismo 7 checks almost all the boxes of what a driving simulator should be.

    Conan Chop Chop is the video game equivalent of running in place. For every fun inclusion, there is another aspect that feels left behind.

    It's a decent first attempt, making me interested to see where the developer goes from here, but unfortunately, Mortal Sin was never able to hold my attention for very long. With some updates to enemy AI, it might be majorly improved, but as it is right now, Mortal Sin didn't do much to keep me coming back for more.

    Triangle Strategy is one of the cleverest tactics games around, with an intriguing story, rewarding choices, and (mostly) excellent stage design.

    Babylon's Fall is a baffling game that lacks any distinct vision, both in terms of gameplay and artistic design.

    Chocobo GP is built for fun but needs time and some more attention before it can really take the pole position.

    Persona 4 Arena Ultimax is still a champion among fighting games, though the story holds it back from overwhelming victory.

    It's been 10 years, but I wish Rune Factory 5 had been delayed for a bit longer. The jump to 3D was inevitable, though more time and polish could have made a significant difference. The cast and daily life are still superb, beyond Rune Factory 4 in some instances, but there's a distinct sense that Rune Factory 5 wasn't finished growing before it was harvested.

    Ghostwire Tokyo is essentially what I thought it would be, for better and for worse. It's charming but empty, ambitious but too formulaic, and it's got the most personality of any game I've played this year. I sincerely hope Tango has more Ghostwire in store, either as DLC or a sequel. Despite its issues, there's nothing else quite like it.

    Stranger of Paradise is a mechanically rich and satisfying action RPG marred by poor balancing and performance issues.
