Crash Bandicoot 4: It's About Time carries on Crash's story as time-space is in trouble again. Toys for Bob have added a lot to this new Crash and while a lot of it works really well, what doesn't work does let the package down. Crash fans will still enjoy even for the new adventure.
The challenge level of Escape the Dark Sector won't be for everyone. If you don't like easy wins, and enjoy simple mehcanics, tactical choices and a deep sense of cooperative gameplay, then this tight package of a game will be for you.

Drake Hollow is beautiful and adorable, but its combat mechanics and repetitive structure become frustrating.
While not overly complicated, Yacht Rock brings the theme to this fun, light party game.

Cyber Hook has an insanely satisfying core gameplay loop. Unfortunately, it doesn't have much else to offer.
Pendragon is a game of both strategy and story, offering a different kind of gameplay experience while digging into historical mythos.
Serious Sam 4 succeeds where it needs to, and fails where it's not really all that important. An unchanging series that is a must for fans.
Fans of the movie will get the most out of The Princess Bride Adventure Book Game, even as a collection piece after they’ve played through it. Playing the game will inspire players to either watch the movie again or watch it for the first time. There isn’t a lot of replayability, and while it was a blast to play through all 6 chapters, it won’t be a game that is played regularly. But just like a good classic movie, when you’re reminded of a quote, or you remember the movie and it makes you smile, then it will almost certainly find its way back onto your tabletop

13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim pairs together a sci-fi anime storyline told from 13 different perspectives about giant Mech battles and time travel, with arcade strategy combat as you seek to protect your city. While convoluted at times 13 Sentinels delivers an incredible story.

While it's too short to call epic, it's an excellent fantasy adventure. Just don't expect fun combat or a deep story.
Peril on Gorgon tells a dark and mature story that kept me enthralled once the ball got rolling. The asteroid itself is a fun area to explore and is rather sizable. The only downsides were the few side quests and underwhelming armor and weapons.
Tony Hawk Pro Skater 1+2 is a must buy for THPS fans, and an incredible entry point for those new to the franchise. Even if you're not a fan of skateboarding it's hard not to have fun working towards campaign goals.
