    Black Ops 4 brings the fun and dares to change. There might not be a campaign, but its replacement called Blackout is so much fun to play. Even if Battle Royale isn't your thing, you can still find enjoyment in the revamped Zombies and the multiplayer modes.

    The World Ends With You Final Remix brings a cool, but chaotic adventure to the Switch. The port mixes RPG with Jpop and anime in a blend of awesomeness. And it is playable by two players.

    Transference is a intense story about a broken family. The addition of VR makes the experience complete, but the game is very easy and short and way too expensive.

    Sribblenauts Megapack combines two strong games for both young and old. The game ask for your creativity and challenges you to find original solutions. Advise is to play the games on Switch instead of PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

    After a few years with Mega Man collections we finally get to play a new Mega Man game. And it was worth the wait. Mega Man 11 modernises but also keeps in touch with its roots. It makes Mega Man attractive for fans and newcomers.

    All in all, Roads is a good entry into the Life is Strange 2 series. It brings back the things fans love about the series and builds an entirely new story around this. Some things could be done better, but these are only small points of critique.

    Forza Horizon 4 is the best game in the franchise yet. Playground Games stayed home and took Forza there. There are enough cars and modes to keep you on the road for hours. As a racefan you simply need this game.

    Dragon Ball FighterZ is both an excellent fighter and an amazing Dragon Ball game. It's easy to pick up, but hard to master. The port to Nintendo Switch has been highly successful and it's great that anyone can now play this game on the go.

    Astro Bot Rescue Mission is the best game for PlayStation VR to date. The levels are brilliant and the VR-experience is overwhelming. Everyone with a PS VR should buy this game.

    Origins was a great game, but Ubisoft exceeded expectations with its successor. The story is long and personal with many choices to make, it’s your own odyssey. Greece is huge and detailed, so it’ll take some time before you're done with the game. That’s nothing but positive.

    Velocity 2X for the Switch. What could we say? The game combines great gameplay with the best of two worlds. The world of platformers and the world of shoot ‘em up games. Every level asks the most of our focus which ads a new level to the replayability.

    Planet Alpha reminds us of Limbo and Inside. The gameplay is similar if you think how these games use platform elements and puzzles to drop you in a world without giving you any context. Still it’s a great game with lots of details and a great atmosphere.

    The Capcom Beat 'Em Up Bundle is a must-play for any old school gamer, especially with two or three other people. Don't expect any licensed games, fancy options or a great online experience though.

    Xenoblade Chronicles 2 expands its already huge amount of content with a brand new prequel story in the shape of Torna - The Golden Country. This is essentially a brand new game and it even improves upon its predecessor.

    Valkyria Chronicles 4 went back to the roots of the original. The gameplay has stayed nearly the same after nine years, with the exception of the new Grenadier class, but it still stands as firm as a rock. If you enjoyed the original, you will enjoy VC4.

    V-Rally 4 offers wonderful design tracks and delivers some intense races. Unfortunately there is a limited amount of modes and the campaign isn't worth your time.

    Shadow of War Definitive Edition is the complete package of a great game. You get to hunt orcs and take over enemy armies. Ultimately this is a hack and slash game, but the RPG elements and stealth gameplay give it a nice twist. Slaying orcs was never so complete.

    Shadow of the Tomb Raider offers the best game of the trilogy. While the jungle might be a place of death, the game really comes to life with a nice balance of puzzles, combat and exploring. A true ending to a awesome trilogy.

    Ultimately, Pro Evolution Soccer 2019 comes with many improvements upon its predecessor. The game is even more realistic than 2018 and contains way more clubs. However, Konami is behind on the competition at other aspects, mostly with the online mode.

    Immortal Unchained could have been a great attempt to get its name between action-RPG’s as Dark Souls and The Surge. However, adding guns to the well-known formula didn't save the game from having way too many technical and balance problems during release.

    Divinity Original Sin II Definitive Edition is a near perfect RPG. It does everything well, from story, characters, combat, dialog and of course co-op. The refinements also make the game accessible for a much broader audience that need to play this game.

    The Forsaken expansion for Destiny 2 delivers a meaty chunk of new content, while building on the foundation that had been established with the vanilla game. New modes, locations and a sinister plot make Destiny 2 shine again, and that's a good thing.

    If you love FIFA 18, you'll love FIFA 19. With some new gameplay features and game modes, the success formula has been broadened. But, with no changes to Pro Clubs and Career Mode the game can't offer you a far better experience than its predecessor.

    From start to finish you are taken into a cool adventure where Lara Croft becomes more and more human. With good balance between puzzles, battles and explorations, you feel like you're in an adventure where everything is dangerous.

    Spider-Man makes a huge comeback on the PlayStation 4. With an exclusive partnership between Sony, Marvel and Insomniac Games, your friendly neighborhood Spider-man got his strongest game since the release of Spider-Man 2 way back when.

    Shenmue 1 & 2 remaster are games that every fan should own. Still, both games feel really old on every front. There are some changes but it’s simply not enough. Though these games deserved a remake, they are still worth your while.

    Guacamelee 2 is a beautiful and delightful game that can proudly wear a Metroidvania medal. With its fantastic humour it will be a delight for multiple people, but the game can feel a little bit too long when you are near the end.

    Dragon Quest XI is not flawless. It suffers from several tropes within the JRPG genre, such as a slow start and a generic overarching story. Despite these flaws however, it's stil a magnificent adventure full of interesting stories and great characters.
