    Some occasional technical issues and an unwillingness to truly burst out of the norms for the genre keep Darktide from reaching enormous heights, but within the confines it sets for itself, this is about as good as it gets.

    A very straightforward remake misses some opportunities, but delivers a fun enough outing for the genre nonetheless.

    Pentiment's unidimensional gameplay might not appeal to everyone.

    Marvel’s Midnight Suns, unfortunately, is one of those games that I can only recommend if you’re willing to stick around its noticeable issues. As it currently stands, the game has the foundations for a phenomenal turn-based strategy game, and the gameplay variety offered by the different heroes you can play is a lot of fun. The writing and story, however, are not good reasons to play this game.

    There's some fun to be had in Gungrave G.O.R.E, but it's buried beneath piles of significant issues.

    Evil West’s outstanding combat and flashy graphics make it a worthwhile experience that burns fast but bright.

    Ugly visuals and an all around lack of polish detract from what is an incredibly strong, compelling, and well designed core adventure, one that represents the series' strongest outing in a very long time otherwise.

    Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0’s battle royale is an iterative upgrade.

    The newest entry in The Dark Pictures Anthology takes a few risks but mostly sticks to the format to deliver another decent horror adventure.

    Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales, in acting as a short middle chapter between Marvel’s Spider-Man and its upcoming sequel, doesn’t really have the luxury to introduce radical new concepts that might turn the game on its head. Rather, it’s a fun, short romp through New York once again, but this time as a new protagonist. Its tightly-paced plot tells a great coming of age story for a new Spider-Man, and its greatest strength is the fun ensemble cast.

    Somerville puts a unique spin on the Inside formula, and though it isn't quite as impactful as the games that inspired it, it's still a haunting, well-made adventure.

    There’s nothing in the Bloody Ties expansion that warrants returning to the game, especially if you’ve been playing it since release. Its story is rather boring, and its new combat encounters are dull.

    It's not a home run, but Sonic Frontiers does so much of the things that really matter so well that it is easily the most fun 3D Sonic has been in years – maybe even decades – and a genuinely fun and engaging game on its own merits.

    The Chant is an intriguing experience with a lot of promise, but plenty of issues stop it from soaring to the heights it can.

    If you like farming sims and have some free time on your hands, Harvestella is worth looking into- though it's far from flawless.

    The Entropy Centre is a surprisingly great game with well made puzzles and unique ideas, though it could have done with some much needed modern features.

    Football Manager 2023 might be a small improvement over its immediate predecessor, but it's still an incredibly accomplished management sim that you can easily sink hundreds of hours into.

    A roguelite FPS, Gunfire Reborn takes good and bad from both genres, making for a somewhat frustrating and inconsistent, though intermittently fun experience.

    WRC Generations shows how much the series has grown by combining the best elements from the past several games.

    Sackboy: A Big Adventure, while downright gorgeous and playful, doesn’t really offer anything when it comes to even remotely challenging gameplay.

    God of War Ragnarok surpasses its predecessor in every way.

    While Star Ocean: The Divine Force may not be the most revolutionary, prettiest, or most action-packed JRPG out there, its fantastic cast of characters and generally fun story do quite a bit to make the game’s 40+ hour journey feel quite cozy. Add in the fact that you’re guaranteed to get some uniqueness through its two protagonists having their own bespoke story beats that warrant multiple playthroughs and you’ve got plenty of JRPG to bite into here.

    Resident Evil Village: Winters' Expansion never feels like an essential, must-play addition to the RE universe, but those who enjoyed the base game will still find plenty to like here.

    New animations help NHL 23 make steps toward greater authenticity but the series still needs a major overhaul.

    There's a lot of better asymmetric multiplayer games and a lot of better Dragon Ball games for you to try out than this one, but if you're determined to play it, this is fine too.

    Asterigos has some promising aspects when it comes to gameplay, but the game feels sorely lacking in the technical department.
