    You can’t beat the feeling of playing Magic with cardboard in your hands. Still, Arena presents a slick realisation in digital form, and one that should suit both old hands and newcomers.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    A muddled game that trips over itself by implementing mechanics from various genres, but never fully expands on their potential.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Much like the man himself, John Wick Hex is straight-ahead and unwavering. It sets out to do one thing - simulate the fights of the movies - and does so with consummate efficiency.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    A game with unapologetically singular focus, its distillation of deeper MMOs' elements nevertheless results in an experience that all too often feels barren.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    PvP still needs work, and the story is once again more style than substance. However, abundant content elsewhere - including new PvE challenges and a build system with actual depth - means Shadowkeep does what it needs to.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    An unholy union of anime, Dark Souls, and My Chemical Romance, Code Vein is as much about style as substance. If that sounds good to you, then you're in for a treat, even if it lacks some of the polish of the genre's best.

    Some ideas don’t fully land, but there’s more than enough here to provide hours of fun in what’s fast becoming an excitingly crowded and appropriately violent realisation of the Warhammer world.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Familiarly solid cover shooting with the occasional surprise. It’s fitting The Coalition has opted to simply call the latest game ‘Gears’, because mostly, it’s just going through the motions.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A well-implemented redux of a moment in time, which may surprise you with its engaging focus on leveling and the friendliness of its players.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    A gripping descent into something between alternate history and fever dream, realised beautifully in audiovisual flair, and lacking just slightly in the combat itself.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    A nostalgic '90s throwback that's challenging, funny, cleverly designed, and shockingly attractive both despite and because of its ancient engine, which enables gigantic levels packed with detail.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Three Kingdoms' first piece of DLC is largely more of the same, but that's no bad thing when the base experience is so good.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Initially unwieldy but eventually engrossing, Age of Wonders' latest entry translates its Civ-meets-XCOM formula brilliantly to a new sci-fi setting. Even if the elements of that sci-fi are a bit rote.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Considering it’s ‘only’ a spin-off, this is a riotously fun and well-designed entry in the series - however, it’s built with co-op in mind. Solo play is viable, but play with a friend, and you’ll both have one of the best shooter experiences of the year so far.
    • 91 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    While the story's over-reliance on genre tropes keeps it from being truly groundbreaking, it's still among the best in MMOs, as is the new content. Shadowbringers is a great experience that could've been an amazing one.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    There’s more than just an endurance racing licence to distinguish Assetto Corsa Competizione from its predecessor. It’s more polished, more precise, and offers more scope for long-term single-player satisfaction.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Struggles to do justice to what should be its show-stopper moments, but breathes much-needed life into the Khajiit and their homeland.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The mission design and story can grate at times, but this is a devilishly fun homage to Diablo 3 and Warhammer Fantasy you’ll want to get your friends in on.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Changes on the battlefield don't make for a Total War experience to match historical and Warhammer entrants, but there's still a deeply involving strategic layer in Three Kingdoms that sits well with its licence.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    One of the most engaging and original story-based games this year. It’s dragged down by some trite videogame elements but its characters elevate it above its contemporaries.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The pace of id and Avalanche’s FPS is neutered by a dull open world and thin story but, in an unbridled whirlwind of gruesome gibs, you probably won’t care.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Sega’s original sequel has received the remake it’s due. The story fumbles in places, but its high points allow it to sit next to Yakuza 0 as the best the series has to offer.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Although its light tutorial and lack of feedback throw it off balance, Rise of Industry’s in-depth production tools and supply chain mechanics - not to mention waffle options - will meet the demands of any production sim fan.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    As Imperator grows in scale from its Clausewitz cousins, so too it grows in depth and ultimately in unwieldiness. But there's a grand strategy with aeons of play in it for you.

    Its two campaigns offer deliciously bonkers fan service for the rats and a meaty strategic challenge for the lizards, deftly served with CA’s usual care for the source material. A generous free update that profoundly improves the Skaven is the icing on the cake.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A vibrant snapshot of the Victorian era that’s bustling with character, but doesn’t explore the intriguing, seismic politics of the period.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Nine Dots Studio's RPG will appeal to people who love fiddly systems and have enormous patience. But if that isn’t you then it'll simply feel like a time drain.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Limbic has turned down its opportunity for revolución in favour of reinforcing the rule of El Presidente - a safe pair of hands for colourful city-building and wry commentary on the abuse of democracy.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Boasting the best swordfighting in the business, Sekiro is a game of rare but deserved self-assurance. You’ll despair as it breaks you down, but then you’ll exult as it builds you up. It’s a journey like little else in gaming, and if you’re up for the challenge, you absolutely have to play it.
    • 84 Metascore

    The Division 2 is a substantial evolution on the mechanics of the first game, with a more immersive world to boot. This is an impressively complete game, with heaps to offer players across all of its content prongs and a level of polish that belies the size of the game’s open world. Sure, it’s story is utterly forgetful to the point where you may not even realise it has one, but all the other components have been tuned to near-perfection.
