    A triumphant follow-up that sets the bar for the looter-shooter. There are some teething issues, but The Division 2 is an incredibly polished product, and downright compelling at the same time.

    It was almost inevitable that One Piece World Seeker would have some faults, but it’s hard not to love the game regardless of them.

    Looking for a change of pace or an escape from the stress of the rat race? Then Golf Peaks can provide you with a brief respite from the daily grind.

    Despite some issues with visuals and AI, MX vs ATV All Out Anniversary Edition is somehow still a lot of fun to play and brings back memories of Motocross Madness.

    It’s engaging and interesting, but not a game for those looking for a quick casual bounce around. This is an experience best played with headphones, greasy palms from the precise jumping, and sweaty forehead from the concentration. It’s not a revolutionary game, but it does what it sets out to do very nicely indeed.

    The campaign itself is quite lengthy with some of the later puzzles taking a little bit more to work out, but the game does such a fantastic job of gradually introducing new ideas that nothing feels insurmountable. It doesn’t feel quite as polished as it did when I played it on Xbox One, however it feels great to sit and muddle my way through the clever puzzles again, especially in handheld mode.

    There’s a lot to like with this remaster and I hope Capcom considers remastering the others for Switch (and PS4 and Xbox One) in the future because some aspects haven’t aged well but this is a damn fine experience. I’ve grown to enjoy playing many older games on handheld systems and Onimusha is best on Switch for me.

    BlazBlue: Central Fiction – Special Edition is by far the best fighting game on Switch. It was already fantastic on PS4 but having everything included here right from the get go in a port that runs brilliantly even in handheld mode makes this my favourite version of the game. If you enjoy 2D fighters and have been wanting something content packed and polished, this is all you need on the Switch.

    With controls feeling slick whichever way you play, the Switch version comes recommended due to its versatility and if you’ve yet to take the plunge (literally) with Downwell, there’s never been a better time to do so.

    Devil May Cry 5 is a stunning hack and slash game and never fails to amaze. Combat this good should be illegal.

    The Occupation is an inventive political thriller that does something new, but is let down by poor AI and some frustrating bugs.

    Ape Out grabs you by the bananas and doesn't let go. A glorious combination of cathartic action, addictive gameplay and a rousing jazz backing.

    Kirby's Extra Epic Yarn has a great game tucked away inside. But the time that has passed since the original and the extra additions tarnish the experience we fondly remember.

    While it does have some issues, the core gameplay of Dead or Alive 6 is fluid and brilliantly fun. It’s certainly the best in the series so far.

    An ideal recommendation for veterans of the genre, Townsmen: A Kingdom Rebuilt scratches a really familiar itch. But there's nothing new here to entice newcomers away from other titles.

    A nice looking adventure, Fimbul is ultimately a bit of a hollow and forgettable experience.

    ToeJam & Earl: Back in the Groove is a weird and wonderful world filled with colourful characters, but some of the movement feels archaic.

    If it’s realism you’re after, DiRT Rally 2.0 is up there with the best rally sims out there. It’s just let down a bit by some poor Rallycross AI and intrusive use of its online features, even in single player modes.

    Jump Force wanted to be something for every anime fan, but while there’s plenty of fan service there just isn’t enough substance to proceedings.

    Pumped BMX Pro is a decent game with loads of tricks to keep you occupied but the precision of the jumps and the steep learning curve can be quite off putting.

    Despite some new ideas and a core gameplay loop that does its best to carry the experience, Anthem is ultimately a bit of a disappointment from BioWare

    Trials Rising is a thrill ride of crazy tracks and various challenges, pushing physics-based racing to its limits.

    Stellaris is a beautiful, busy space adventure that rewards you as much for careful, considered strategy as it does for building a 40-ship fleet as early as possible and going ham on anything with more than one pair of eyes.

    Steins;Gate Elite takes the best of the anime and visual novel source material to create a superb visual novel adventure experience that is a must play for newcomers to the genre and fans of the original visual novel.

    Degrees of Separation is a beautiful puzzle game with a lovely story of a couple with conflicting backgrounds just trying to be together but is let down by a large amount of monotonous scarf collecting and various bugs.

    For me, the biggest issue Anthem has right now is its loading times. I’ve never seen a game with so many loading screens, and some of them are utterly unnecessary. There’s an incredibly intrusive feature whereby if you fall behind your squad, a tethering mechanism kicks in and drags you forward via a loading screen. The fact that this happens when you’re barely 100 yards away in the same instance is mind-boggling, but more irksome is the frequency at which it happens.

    Loud, brash and gleefully addictive at times, Crackdown 3 is unashamedly fun, even if it does feel more like a remake than a sequel.

    Whilst Far Cry New Dawn isn't a completely new Experience, it does have a few features that give it new life, and despite the bugs and weak story, it was nice revisiting Hope County.

    Metro Exodus feels like a game where its ambitions slightly outstrip its abilities. Visually stunning, it suffers a little too much from an obtuse system of storytelling and maps that are slightly too large creating long periods of doing nothing.

    Apex Legends is a superb game featuring an excellent array of heroes, tight, responsive gun play, smooth movement, smart communication system and an astonishing level of polish in a free-to-play game.
