    • 84 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    The best Advance Wars game never made, whose post-launch update smooths out the rough edges and creates a strategy game that’s more accessible and fun than ever.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    A sci-fi shooter-meets-RPG sabotaged by a lack of plot, weak character progression, and sluggish combat.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Shallow, stupid, and very repetitive but as long as you play with friends there’s a goofy charm to what is, for better or worse, the best Marvel team-up game in a long while.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Its attempted revolution of turn-based tactics isn’t quite as practical as it first seems but this is still an impressively fun, and funny, strategy game.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The best Contra game for decades, even if it’s not an official sequel, with amusingly over-the-top action and a great co-op mode.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The best Advance Wars clone so far on the Switch, with tons of content, accessible controls, and deceptively deep gameplay.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The world’s only cyber ninja simulator is distinctly rough around the edges, but never lets that get in the way of some gory, chaotic fun.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The charming mix of Minecraft and Dragon Quest works even better the second time round, with a smart sequel that address the flaws of the original while adding plenty of new features of its own.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 20 Critic Score
    SolSeraph might replicate the gameplay of the original it but doesn’t even attempt to channel the same sense of innovation and experimentation. Failing to offer any improvement or evolution of the concept is a far greater insult to its legacy than just letting the game being forgotten by history. A fate to which it is now assuredly doomed anyway.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Once you get past They Are Billions’ multiple barriers to entry, and start to dig into its complexities for yourself, you’ll discover a fabulously complex and challenging game that’s not afraid to test you. For the right sort of masochist, it’ll be the start of dozens of hours of joyous yet cautious experimentation.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A thoughtful exploration of the monsters people can unwittingly become, although it often struggles to offer a compelling gameplay experience.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    Why a show set in the 80s has a video game tie-in that recalls the worst of 90s licensed games is a mystery, but this has absolutely none of the charm, wit, or excitement of the TV show.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A compelling story well told, and although it’s still not very interactive the variety and artfulness of the presentation feels like something only a video game could do.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    More depressing is its constant desire to shake you down for cash, with microtransactional extras popping up for practically everything you need to progress. It’s an exhausting begging simulator, with a wafer-thin veneer of Harry Potter that in no way recaptures the initial allure of Pokémon GO.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A slick sequel with promising, if shallow, career mode improvements. But it’s moving in the right direction and not far off achieving elite status.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    More than just a successful reboot of a forgotten franchise, this is one of the most unique and entertaining new fighting games of recent years.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Not just one of the most versatile 2D game creation tools on consoles but the best collection of new Super Mario courses since the 90s.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The best Mario Kart clone of the nineties is also the best Mario Kart clone of the 21st century, with a stunning remake that offers welcome refinement and improvement.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The best Castlevania game never made and while it adds relatively little to the formula it is the best example of its use in many years.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A fun spin-off that takes some of the best parts of Yakuza and weaves a story that’s at least as compelling – even if a lot of gameplay elements are becoming overfamiliar at this point.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A clever mash-up of two very different games that perfectly evokes the best of 2D Zelda while integrating the surprisingly tactical rhythm action combat of Crypt Of The NecroDancer.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Between managing individual outbreaks you use a world map view to spread the infection to neighbouring countries in your ongoing effort to kill all humans. But while the process is reasonably compelling, the relative simplicity of its mechanics eventually starts to undermine the fun.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Its frequent checkpoints get more spaced out as you progress, but the invention never stops, expanding its simple base mechanisms in increasingly challenging new directions. Its polished, elegantly biological good looks are complemented by deliciously gloopy sound effects in this satisfying and tactile action puzzler.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    If you’re not careful you’ll also find yourself learning a lot about the period’s history and the Romans’ divisive final lurch towards Christianity. But don’t let that put you off, as this is a deep and varied strategy game that never lets historical authenticity get in the way of fun.
    • 89 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Patients’ stories are hilarious, as are the songs that pepper the game, and the appalling medical advice you offer based on observation of the zodiac. Even more bizarrely, it’s based on the life of real Elizabethan astrologer, Simon Forman, albeit jazzed up considerably for the game.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Another engrossing example of traditional Japanese role-playing, that’s still accessible enough for anyone to enjoy – as long as they’ve played the first one.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A slight downgrade on the original but still a fun crossover that works as a crash course in the joys of both Persona and Etrian Odyssey.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    Not your typical real-time strategy game, but despite a few interesting ideas this shallow husk of a game feels almost barbarically simple.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A rare, honest-to-goodness video game comedy that will delight Rick and Morty fans but also features some imaginative use of VR.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A charmingly inventive temporal puzzle and exploration game, that makes full use of one of the most enjoyably interactive game worlds of recent years.
