    A good karaoke game. The fact that it ignores Kinect is a little annoying but there are other ways to play it which enhance accessibility. It’s simple, fun and addictive. However, the music library is lackluster and I want better songs. I really hope they can offer more popular songs in the future even if they are paid content packs.

    The game does have some flaws in the gameplay elements, but it’s easy to overlook these when the overall package is so well put together.

    Zenith is a fun game even though the developers seem to have cut a few corners here and there. Due to its old-school feel it comes across as an unpolished experience which takes a significant amount of time to get used to. However, once you get used to the feel, the environments and story get a hold of you and never let go. The game will definitely make you laugh with its humor and pop culture references.

    Exile’s End is by no means a bad game, it’s just a game with bad decisions. As a standard sci-fi metroidvania, it is more than competent but sadly does little to make itself stand out from a genre that has been flooding the market for years now.

    The universe’s mysticism is enthralling, with countess ways to enjoy it. Everything that worked so well in the first game—its fantastic level design, supernatural powers, world building, and lore—are all present with even greater impact. It’s evident that Arkane put a lot of time and energy into designing the entire game to create a truly incredible experience.

    While Pirate Pop Plus is not the deepest experience, it does bring new life to an old classic format which is not only a joy to play in quick, short bursts, but can also easily keep you entertained for long periods of time.

    Infinite Air is a major letdown, broken at launch and still having minor frame rate issues after title updates. All that's left is a mixture between an overpriced bad simulator and a hard arcade snowboarding game. All things considered, hardcore fans may be pleased with this title, not because of how good it is, but as I said, due to the lack of snowboarding games currently on the market. Here's hoping Steep lives up to the hype.

    Farming Simulator 17, as with most simulation games, will not be for everyone. If you are a fan of the Farming Simulator series, this year’s version is not majorly different than previous versions, but there are enough graphical and tactile upgrades to keep returning players interested. Many bugs have been fixed too. New players may enjoy the planning, management and logistics of owning and running a farm. Either way, Farming Simulator 17 is now the best way to play a farming simulation game.

    Overall, Necropolis is a fun combat-focused game which will keep you engaged for dozens of hours. It’s brutally difficult and even I had trouble despite being an expert at Dark Souls 3. Keep that in mind when purchasing the title. The pastel-looking visuals give it a unique aesthetic and in general it’s quite polished. I just wish the combat was less clunky.

    Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare is a definitive evolution for the franchise, an evolution we desperately needed.

    While Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare shines when it comes to the technical front, especially the shooting mechanics, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered remains a testament to amazing storytelling.

    Apart from the lighting, I can’t really complain about anything. The performance is solid and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare has never looked better. Just our of curiosity I went back to the PC version and this remaster looks so much better even on consoles. The developers need to be applauded. For those of you who were wondering if Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered was worth it, I can tell you without a shred of doubt that it definitely is.

    A definite step up from the previous games in the franchise and offers much more to players.

    As far as remasters go, it’s not exactly the most impressive, but Skyrim itself is such an amazing game to begin with that anything done to enhance it is a welcome change, which is a testament to how well it was created originally.

    Despite all its faults, Saturday Morning RPG is a joy to play and while it's not the longest experience, it should keep you entertained for each moment that you play. You’ll love it for the references, then for the strategy. If not that, then for the ace combat. If you are looking for a game that drips 80s charm, then this is it.

    Players of the original Xenoverse will be annoyed at the simple rinse and repeat of Xenoverse 2’s already repetitive gameplay. Fans of the Dragon Ball series who haven’t played the original will be pleasantly surprised at the amount of content on offer but constant grinding, repetition, and simplistic gameplay may turn players away from Bandai Namco’s second attempt.

    Titanfall 2 is an incredible and exhilarating title that you must play for yourself. With an extremely fun and diverse single-player offering this time around, Respawn Entertainment has knocked it out of the park. Pair it with the satisfying multiplayer and you have a nearly perfect game on your hands.

    Playing Mordheim is an exercise in tedium. It’s slow, dreary, ugly, frustrating and repetitive, with no sense of excitement and a distinct lack of polish. The amount of numbers and stats and rules the game has give the illusion of strategic depth, but this one simply belongs in the depths.

    New World Order serves as a great middle episode that starts off a little clumsily but ends on a high note. Telltale’s compelling writing of this cast of well-known characters is commendable and I can’t wait to see how their story unfolds.

    A great experience and a technical marvel when it comes to the visuals. However, it needs updates to fix balancing and performance issues.

    Kyurinaga’s Revenge is not a good game. While it is a lot more competent than it’s hack-and-slash predecessor, developers Recotechnology have created a sub-par, unfinished experience with terrible co-op gameplay and slapdash level design.

    Manual Samuel is a truly unique game that was made as a labor of love.

    HoPiKo provides endless epic challenges that may feel overwhelming at times. It fully requires a flawless reaction capacity from the player, making the "trial and error tactic" your best ally in order to achieve perfect timing in every move. Despite its difficulty and some downsides like the lack of leaderboards, the cool aesthetics, catchy soundtrack and short load times makes it easy to pick and play at any given moment.

    The decision to lock both games at 30 FPS is a poor one in my opinion and maybe just keeping the original assets and increasing the frame rate would’ve served the collection well.

    Having a poor UI, lack of objectives, slow pacing, and self-limitations, there's not much room left for strategy or fun.

    Axiom Verge stumbles at points along the way to its end, but the journey through Sudra is excellent. The gameplay mechanics are solid and engaging, the story is intriguing, and the graphics will transport players back to a time where similar games ruled the industry.

    There is variety and immense replayability as you try to beat your previous score. Had the moving trucks not been a part of the core experience, Clustertruck would’ve been an average game but the fact that it incorporates such a unique element into the title elevates it considerably.

    The Bug Butcher might be a simple game, but it’s filled to the brim with charm and most importantly, fun and engaging gameplay.

    Everything other than the technical aspects of the game are so good that I can’t help but heartily recommend it.

    Just a phenomenal title which stands up well on Xbox One. Despite its 30 FPS presentation which results in feeling like trudging through molasses, the game still features intelligent puzzles and rewards the player when they finally figure it out.
