    The Sinking City struggles under the weight of its ambition, but it’s compelling mysteries and horrific world make it a compelling journey.

    Observation is a thought provoking, eerie space drama with dubious computers, failing equipment, and very threatening geometry. Don’t let it get away from you.

    Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled breaks casual expectations, delivering a much needed jolt of speed and a high skill ceiling to reinvigorate my love for the genre.

    Cadence of Hyrule is a lovingly crafted, challenging, but rewarding ode to 30 years of music.

    Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night is everything that was great about Igarashi’s Metroidvania titles all rolled into one, and feels like it will be as timeless a game as Symphony of the Night.

    This game is Bananas. B-A-N-A-N-A-S.

    Judgment may be linked to Yakuza’s legacy, but it still provides a great reason to explore Kamurocho once again.

    A loving homage to a niche sub-genre of days gone past, Slay the Spire uses procedurally-generated challenges to keep its deck-building gameplay fresh.
    • 83 Metascore

    Anyone looking for a game that offers an almost endless amount of replayability should definitely check out Duck Game, especially those who have a couple of friends to play with.

    Yuppie Psycho is a solid adventure game that plays rough with first-timers, but offers enough hidden content to make exploring worthwhile.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    Dauntless is a great entry point to hunting games that is easily accessible to players who have yet to experience the thrill of the hunt.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Persona Q2’s has a lot of fun dungeon crawling to offer, but doesn’t make the most of its great cast’s time together.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Gato Roboto is a simple, cute, short but enjoyable Metroidvania with fun mobility and satisfying gunplay.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    Warhammer: Chaosbane borrows the elements that made past action RPGs of the same genre so addicting , perhaps sticking a bit too closely, resulting in a game that may feel a little too familiar for veterans of the genre.

    When Trover Saves the Universe is funny, it’s VERY funny, but its humor is just not enough to carry such an average, unspectacular game.

    • 85 Critic Score
    Priced at a more reasonable, $50, Blood & Truth comfortably finds a middle ground between a full retail release and something more indicative of a smaller, VR experience. Owners of PSVR, especially those yearning for more, after their time with PlayStation Worlds, are wholly encouraged to check out Blood & Truth.

    Castlevania Anniversary Collection is a vital collection of the games that made action and horror the genres they are today.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 65 Critic Score
    Layers of Fear 2 is striking in its unsettling places, but is a looser experience than its predecessor, losing the player with busywork puzzles and winding corridors.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    World End Syndrome offers a gripping mystery about undead and lost folklores, yet also a touching story about the hidden trials of those who suffer in silence.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    “Wastelands” has a better understanding of what makes Life is Strange 2’s story work, and is more enticing for it.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    It may be over 20-years-old, but Blood has aged nicely into a gory red wine that remains highly replayable to this day.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 95 Critic Score
    Team Sonic Racing refines and advances the genre in creative ways that make it a must play for both kart racing and Sonic fans alike, which is easy to do thanks to its budget price.

    Three Kingdoms, to me, represents the best of both the historical and fantasy sides of the franchise. It creates stories that are compelling to play through and watch, using a vast number of systems working in harmony to achieve it. It creates the highest of highs, and the lowest of lows, and it does it all while still improving upon the Total War formula.

    Fell Seal: Arbiter’s Mark desperately wants to recreate the experience of a tactical RPG and it does so with a few added flourishes.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    Readers looking for an engaging and dark story, one that isn’t afraid of embracing the harsh realities of the middle ages during its tail end, are encouraged to try A Plague Tale: Innocence.

    Sniper Elite V2 Remastered is a good remaster of an average third-person shooter.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 65 Critic Score
    Rage 2 takes Doom-like gunplay and puts in just another dull open world game that doesn’t do anything particularly memorable.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    If you’re in the mood for some crude humor and silly, over-the-top action, Saints Row: The Third is still an undisputed king of ridiculousness.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Puyo Puyo Champions is a near perfect for hardcore puzzle game enthusiasts, but casuals may want to start elsewhere.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    Whispers of a Machine is a puzzling enigma, a fascinating story, and a bit of an ugly beast, but well worth your time.
