The ability to create weapons and the way you use them to fight in this retro platformer is fantastic. The aesthetic for Panzer Paladin is also awesome, but the first half of the game's level design and slow platforming leaves room for improvement.
Rocket Arena is a fresh take on the hero shooter genre with great gameplay mechanics and character design, but there are some minor elements holding it back from perfection
Superliminal fails to justify itself or its themes and ends up as a rote puzzle experience you’ll be fine to forget.
A co-op focus, and complicated difficulty curve can make the game stressful at times, but in the end it's worth the pain.
Death Stranding is a transformative experience that transcends genres to convey a message everyone must hear: we are stronger together and weaker apart.
Neon Abyss is occasionally great. It's let down by repetition, uneven difficulty, and the occasional game-breaking bug.
F1 2020 is the complete package and a massive value for anyone interested in racing games, Formula 1 fan or not.
Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon 2 is a great follow-up to the retro throwback that was its predecessor. Simply put, there is more to play and more to enjoy.
This spin on the Superhot formula includes a ton of new improvements and features. With an confusing but excellent story and trippy slow mo action, FPS fans will find much to enjoy with Superhot: Mind Control Delete.
Deadly Premonition 2 is a great follow up to a beloved cult classic. It has an intriguing story and eccentric quirks, but feels safer on the gameplay side of things.
The Liberation of Rietburg is a fast-paced cooperative strategy game that delivers on its mechanics but is light on theme and flavor.
The Last of Us Part II combines powerful story telling with frantic gameplay and beautiful graphics. Turns out Part II was a good idea after all.
While there could certainly be a time and place for The Crew chances are most players will seek out other titles. With repetitive gameplay and lots of restrictive rules it's the least cooperative cooperative game. If you're wanting to share a fun experience with friends you're going to find it in a less restrictive game.
Borderlands 3: Bounty of Blood is arguably the most well rounded of the DLCs so far, with decent story, characters, environments, and mechanics, but it doesn't excel in any specific area
Clubhouse Games continues Nintendo's tradition of family fun, bringing together different and customizable games, with so many different ways to play. There's something for everyone included.
Not only does Huntdown perfect what's been done in 2D shooters, it offers several new ways forward for the genre. A retro-minded tour-de-force that feels right at home in 2020.
Though a bit thin on content, Brigandine: The Legend of Runersia offers a solid tactical experience with in-depth mechanics that hardocre and casual fans alike may enjoy.
WIth a fantastic soundtrack and brightly colored environments, this wacky “skateboating” game captures a wonderful arcade skateboarding experience. The Campaign, however, can harsh the synthwave buzz.
Court of the Dead Dark Harvest is a tight package. The components look fantastic and the component count is low enough to make it extremely portable. Games are fast and balanced with all player counts between 3 and 6. The rules are light and straight-forward and games are fast with no timing issues or confusing rules combinations. There is player elimination, but that does speed up the end game, so it doesn't cause a huge issue with players waiting around. Dark Harvest grabs the Court of the Dead theme by the throat and doesn't let go.
The Isle of Armor is a short adventure on a small stretch of land. But, with new features, the expanded Pokedex, and a beautiful wild area, it's hard not to suggest it for anyone with the base game.
A clunky adventure that will only appeal to hardcore fans thanks to its antiquated gameplay and ho-hum additions.
The Academy is a mess of a game, with terrible puzzles, characters and plot. Don't bother.
Thanks to a moody atmosphere and precise mechanics, West of Dead perfectly wraps the tense feeling of cover shooting around a solid roguelike core.
King of Tokyo is a lot of fun. It's extremely easy to learn for players of any age or skill level (the rulebook is extremely short with very detailed pictures and examples, and our description above is enough for you to start playing and pick up the fine details as you play). It's quick, and the components, especially in the Dark Edition, look stunning and are extremely durable. It's very light for easy transportation and doesn't require a lot of table space. While the Dark Edition doesn't add a lot beyond visuals, it's limited nature, extra wickedness rules and incredible looking components mean that even owners King of Tokyo should find a place for this.
