    The Grand Caiman DLC contains a visually impressive challenge tomb with a decent amount of difficulty. It's one of the shortest packs so far but as it keeps things interesting throughout the side mission and adds a little to the story, I still recommend it.

    Operencia: The Stolen Sun is a top-notch old-school dungeon crawler that modernizes the genre in impressive ways. If you enjoy these sorts of challenging retro RPGs then you definitely won't be disappointed with this massive and memorable adventure.

    Yoshi's Crafted World is one of the cutest games that you'll ever play but it's incredibly easy to the point where it becomes unengaging. That being said, the amount of variety and replay value is top-notch and that makes the familiar gameplay really shine.

    As an Atelier fan, I thoroughly enjoyed my time with Nelke & the Legendary Alchemists: Ateliers of the New World. The fact that it features oodles of characters from a huge franchise of games is exceptional and its rewarding gameplay is a treat, too.

    In the end, at least Windscape's graphics are fairly snazzy and you get a super-cool shield to pair with your weapons when you craft them. The maintenance wrench actually has moving parts and the shield that it comes with has a giant gear around it that moves in sync with the wrench. If the entire game had that level of love and finesse, it could have been a real gem.

    There's no denying that Xenon Racer is a very promising drift-focused racing game but it doesn't quite reach the high notes that its inspirations achieved 20 or so years ago. As a result, you'll be better off booting up your PS1 and replaying some classics.

    MX vs ATV All Out certainly isn't for everyone but it does offer a lot of fun for those who enjoy practicing their off-road racing skills. Plus, the amount of content in this massive Anniversary Edition makes it a rather appealing and comprehensive package.

    Blaster Master Zero was a phenomenal remake of an 8-bit classic so being able to finally enjoy a true sequel is an absolute treat. If you're up for a challenging and rewarding retro experience then playing Blaster Master Zero 2 is a must.

    If you'd like to have some co-op first-person shooting fun with a friend either locally or online then you can have a few hours of fun with RICO. After that, it'll likely overstay its welcome with its simple gameplay and tiresome structure.

    Even though Fate/Extella Link feels a lot like its predecessor, it's still a much-improved game that'll keep you hacking and slashing for hours. Its super-fun 8 player online component is just the icing on the cake.

    One Piece: World Seeker features impressively rewarding exploration that'll have you immersed in its beautiful and expansive world. That being said, the combat falls flat and tedium will rear its ugly head much sooner than you'd expect.

    Claybook deserves a lot of credit for being as unique and enjoyable as it is. Even though it doesn't quite feel like a fully fleshed out experience yet, I hope to see a sequel that really runs with its clever concepts.

    Casting gesture-based spells is a great concept for a VR game but ensuring that the gestures register properly can make The Wizards: Enhanced Edition an irritating experience. That being said, it can be quite fun if you're willing to adapt to its frustrating aspects.

    Although it doesn't take full advantage of what the 3DS is capable of, Kirby's Extra Epic Yarn is a must-have portable version of a top-notch Wii game complete with plenty of impressive extra content that complements an already great 2D platformer.

    The Occupation is a classic example of a concept with great promise but poor execution. The massive amount of bugs that hamper progress and the lack of a proper stealth system constantly get in the way of being able to enjoy this admittedly unique experience.

    I don't care what anyone else says, The Lego Movie 2 Videogame is a ton of fun. With a spot-on blend of familiar Lego gameplay, open-world environments, and an assortment of awesome gadgets; what's not to love?

    The Walking Vegetables: Radical Edition may feature generic twin-stick shooting gameplay but its '80s aesthetic makes it feel unique.

    Assault Android Cactus was an incredible game when it released a few years ago and it's just as great now with a few extras, too.

    It may not be the most original or rewarding game out there but Treasure Stack is certainly a solid and fun competitive puzzler.

    I'm sure the developers of Crimson Keep had a clear vision of a fun dungeon crawler in mind but what they actually made is one of the worst games that I've played in a long time. Here's hoping they go back to the drawing board before working on their next game.

    Even though there is a lot of content in Braveland Trilogy, it's still a very simplistic take on SRPGs that doesn't offer anything new.

    Overload might just be the greatest six degrees of freedom game yet with its tight and intuitive controls and gorgeous presentation.

    Competitive 2D platforming fans will absolutely love Move or Die. The amount of variety and constant fun is unmatched in the genre.

    The Serpent's Heart DLC contains the most interesting and challenging puzzles yet and it will get your heart racing. The story is nicely intertwined with the gameplay, too. If only the fun could have lasted a bit longer...

    Devil May Cry 5 features incredible action-intense gameplay as well as gorgeous visuals, engaging cutscenes, and phenomenal audio. If it included a little more variety then it would easily be the best in the series.

    Dick Wilde 2 can be a very irritating game but if you're willing to stick to it, it can become a rather rewarding arcade shooter.

    Seeing as it's not as good as classic shooting gallery arcade games, why anyone would bother with Guns'n'Stories is beyond me.

    If you're looking for a colourful VR puzzler in the same vein as Portal then you can't do much better than ChromaGun VR.

    TrainerVR does a good job of giving you the freedom to make your own elaborate train tracks but it could use at least some structure.

    If you want to get lost in a beautiful virtual world that's full of satisfying puzzles then XING: The Land Beyond is a must-have game.
