    Darksiders 3 review

    Darksiders 3

    When combat is between you and one other, Darksiders 3 can provide some decent, button-mashy fun, but the real fight is with the baffling world design and some cheap deaths. No Darksiders has been quite the same as the one before it: as Hoody Link,... more

    State of Decay 2 review

    State of Decay 2

    State of Decay 2 has some fun additions that can keep things interesting. Just not quite interesting enough (especially when contending with a clutch of performance issues). As themes, both zombies and post-apocalyptic survival have been attempted... more

    Strange Brigade review

    Strange Brigade

    Rebellion has wrought a breezy shooter, angled it towards multiplayer, and burnished it with wit, but its minute-to-minute action is repetitive and feels imprecise. For the avid player, the act of stumbling across any courtyard in reality... more

    Guacamelee 2 review

    Guacamelee! 2

    While its impact isn't as great as the original, Guacamelee 2 is a reminder of how good combat and traversal can feel when married together as they are in this 2D platformer-cum-brawler. More respected than El Santo, and more influential than Mil... more

    Shadow of the Tomb Raider review

    Shadow of the Tomb Raider

    Shadow of the Tomb Raider takes the series’ formula and pushes it, polishing the platforming and bolstering its tombs, but the game’s power ebbs as the main quest is bloated with distraction, and the writing is still patchy and dull. Take an enduring penchant for panache, be it dressed for dinner in black or... more

    Monster Hunter: World review

    Monster Hunter World

    This long standing series makes an outrageously good current gen debut. The size and scope of the environments, and the monsters in them, is awe inspiring, making Monster Hunter: World a true (lizard) king of games.  There will probably, whilst playing Monster Hunter: World, come a moment... more
