Everything it should be, Monster Hunter World: Iceborne is an absolutely must-have addition to anyone who enjoyed the core game.
An excellent entry into the new Star Wars canon.
While you can pay to skip grinding out a playset of all the skills, you risk nothing but your time by giving it a try. So really, I guess the more apt question is, why haven’t you played Phantom Dust?
With impressive customization options and a challenging yet manageable difficulty level, this RPG has a lot to offer if you can look past the occasional glitches and a multiplayer that feels lacking unless you already have friends to play with.
While it may have been only a brief preview, Song of Horror shows genuine promise for what could be a very successful horror game.
A wonderful remastered version of the original Spyro games that keeps true to the original gameplay. The graphics are amazing, and despite some loading glitches, it provides many hours of fun.
A humorous and beautifully drawn point-and-click adventure, Angelo and Deemon: One Hell of a Quest is fun to play, but unfortunately falls flat story-wise.
Stellar storytelling and an immersive world design makes Greedfall fun to play, but disappointing character customization, poor graphics, and bad animation prevent the title from truly shining.
If you’re into roguelikes, bullet-hell, or third-person shooter games, this is a can’t-miss title. Risk of Rain 2 has just as much style as it does mechanical polish.
A difficult survival game with some interesting elements that is significantly hindered by tedious mechanics and a superficial world.
FromSoftware comes through once more to show they aren’t just a one-trick pony: Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice is an all-around great, engaging stealth-action game.
Fixed camera angles, boring gameplay, wooden animations, and poor localization all mar Eternity: The Last Unicorn beyond the point of being anything approaching enjoyable.
Too buggy to currently be considered playable, INSOMNIA: The Ark could eventually be an enjoyable experience in a cool, dieselpunk-futuristic world.
Yakuza 0 offers a riveting tale of organized crime and an action-packed, open world filled with interesting characters to PC players who missed out on the Playstation release two years ago.
Strange Brigade is Rebellion’s much anticipated multiplayer-adventure – and what an adventure it is! Built for 1-4 player co-op, this title doesn’t do thing by halves. Mysterious dungeons, strange cats and huge, tough enemies are the norm here.
Dark Souls: Remastered is a mediocre remaster for a fantastic title that ultimately may or may not be worth it for PC gamers.
Too many things got in the way of enjoying The Nameless Chronicles, as it simply doesn’t seem polished enough. Too spastic in camera movements, too repetitive in fights, and too devoid of scenery makes it hard to appreciate the otherwise interesting story.
ELEX is an ode to fans of Gothic and Risen, and fans will most likely be satisfied. How detailed the title is makes it clear: Piranha Bytes isn’t trying to cash in on an aging franchise. That being said, the issues cannot be brushed aside. It’s been nearly two decades since the studio published its first game, Gothic I, and what plagued the earlier titles plagues ELEX as well. And that, is a problem.
Overgrowth, while fun for a while, misses the mark for a captivating story or combat. The world feels uninviting and dead, giving off the feel of a game from the early 2000’s when the processing power of hardware was much more limiting. The combat is fast-paced and fun, but it lacks depth and eventually goes stale. The story that ties it all together feels loose and lacks impact, each character blends into another and consequently prevents the player from connecting at a deeper level. The title does shine for the first hour or two, but it quickly loses its flair.
Even those who don’t normally play point-and-clicks can enjoy Darkestville Castle, but only the die-hard devotees of the genre will be able to persevere past the inevitable and frequent bouts of frustration from struggling through convoluted puzzles. An intriguing story and captivating art style round off this puzzling puzzler.
