    Days Gone review

    Days Gone

    Days Gone is a grim, beautiful B-movie; its action and writing are full of pulpy thrills, and by the end of it, I found myself liking a character called Deacon St. John – an achievement in itself. It’s the end of the world in Oregon, and by the looks of things it... more

    Control review

    Control

    Control is Remedy at its best: pulpy, weird, and immensely satisfying to play. Its setting is a potent concoction of '60s brutalist style and wacky sci-fi. Performance issues hamper the shootouts, and the characters are a little cold, but it's the setting and atmosphere that win the day. The first words in Alan Wake, intoned by its eponymous hero, are... more

    Death Stranding review

    Death Stranding

    Death Stranding is filled with things that must be seen, a sprawling, genre-spanning sci-fi adventure from a developer like no other. Its tackier clumps of writing and stunt casting seem overwrought, but its direction and its stars shine brightest The hero of Death Stranding is played by Norman Reedus, whose signature... more

    Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order review

    Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order

    Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order has a string of wisely chosen influences, and it delivers on the long-overdue promise of a fun Jedi action-adventure. Bugs and design wrinkles irritate. The trouble with Star Wars is that it is no longer a long time ago, nor is... more

    Ghost of Tsushima review

    Ghost of Tsushima

    The game may never have been as sweet as it was in the first of the three main areas, but, to its credit, that’s because I was swept along by the story. What makes a role-playing game? Purists would argue that a table is... more

    Spider-Man: Miles Morales review

    Spider-Man: Miles Morales

    The developer, Insomniac Games, has a similar storytelling confidence to that of Naughty Dog—a natural cinematic ease, bolstered by money and technology, which gives equal weight to ground-level struggles as to those beyond the rooftops. Christmas in New York, and the streets are lined with slush. Miles Morales,... more

    Where it succeeds isn’t in how close it scrapes to the level of prestige TV, or to films. Its coup is not, “Look how closely we can make games resemble highbrow art.” It’s more, “Look what previously fenced-off realms we can get interactivity into.” If you’ve been looking forward to The Last of Us Part II, I’m... more
