    The worldless storytelling is as compelling as ever and the purposefully frustrating control system still seems an excitingly daring experiment – now softened by an optional co-op mode.

    On a flat screen Thumper already seems like a near perfect video game experience but in VR it becomes its own reality, one that’s thrilling and unnerving in equal measure.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    We still have a problem in the game not evolving past its initial set of ideas, and resting on its laurels long before it gets to the end of its short running time, but this is definitely the most we’ve ever enjoyed it. It’s also another game where Oculus Quest’s superior controls and roomscale tracking makes all the difference.

    Having Patrick Stewart as your narrator is quite the selling point, but he seems oddly wasted here, in this otherwise fairly low budget, portal-filled puzzler. Before you get too excited this is really nothing like Valve’s classic and a much more slow-paced, story-based affair.

    Another of Quest’s most important launch titles, this has long been championed as one of the best first person shooters for VR headsets. At heart it’s a fairly simple wave-based shooter, in some ways a modern day interpretation of dual-stick shooters such as Robotron: 2084 and Smash T.V. You’ve got two pistols and a heavy weapon and have to mow down hordes of malfunctioning robots, but somehow it’s a lot stranger than you’d imagine.

    It’s an utterly charming experience whose only fault is that you’re always left wanting more.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    We’re glad this is an Oculus Quest launch title because we never had the chance to review it when it first came out on PC and PlayStation 4, but it’s easily the most entertaining VR multiplayer game – multiplayer in the sense that you get to play it with other people not wearing a headset.
    • 93 Metascore

    The Quest controllers are much more precise, and together with the lack of cables transforms this from a good game to a truly great one.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    The Quest has to start somewhere with online multiplayer though and this is as good a place as any.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    It’s actually quite hard, and has its own minor unlockables, which further justifies the already perfectly reasonable asking price.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A very compelling mix of roguelike and first person shooter, with highly distinctive visuals and pleasingly difficult tactical choices.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A blockbuster action movie in VR form that shows the abilities of PlayStation VR and Sony’s studios better than ever before, even if the experience is ultimately rather shallow.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Still one of the best action games ever made, but while this is a competent port/remaster the absurdly high price makes it an expensive novelty.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    An excellent mix of turn-based dungeon crawler, roguelike, and card game whose perfectly balanced combat will have you constantly coming back for more.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    An impressively unique stealth adventure which mixes a gothic horror atmosphere with a touching tale of two siblings surviving against the odds.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    2001 is hardly the most obvious movie to use as inspiration for a video game and perhaps predictably the end result suffers from slow-pacing and a lack of meaningful interaction.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A likeable, car chase-riddled sandbox crime spree that updates the original pre-3D Grand Theft Auto games into a more modern play experience.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Colourful golfing action with a fascinating complexity to each swing – and a stealth workout – but relatively few courses.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A spirited attempt at innovation and some competent driving mechanics are not enough to escape the shadow of either Mario Kart or the previous Sonic & Sega racers.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    A hugely enjoyable mix of historical realism and exaggerated action that is both surprisingly accessible and filled with an impressive depth of tactical options.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A surprisingly thorough compilation of 8 and 16-bit Castlevanias, that illustrates the early history of one of gaming’s most influential franchises.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    An impressively original horror game whose doom-laden atmosphere and relentless day/night cycle is more terrifying than any jump scare.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    As a first person shooter, Rage 2 has some of the best action of the year but as an open world adventure it squanders everything on a listless story campaign and banal mission design.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    A terrible port of a game that is very much showing its age, and has no business being repackaged at anything close to full price.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    There are still problems with artificial intelligence and level design, but despite its age this is still one of the best sniper games around.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Another slow-paced and only intermittently interesting episode, that underlines the fact that the story and characters are never going to be as engaging as the first episode suggested.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    One of the most enjoyable roguelikes of recent years, with the heavy emphasis on RNG saved by some fun co-op options.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    A survival game that, despite a few interesting ideas, struggles to provide any reason to persevere with its overfamiliar gameplay and poorly handled storytelling.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A mixture of roguelike and Zelda: A Link To The Past that looks and plays extremely well, but even with some notable improvements still doesn’t get the balance quite right.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    An excellent remake that manages to overcome the flaws of the original and offer a glimpse at what a next gen Yakuza game might look like.
