Risk of Rain 2 Early Access Review

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.

Diesel Brothers: Truck Building Simulator Review

Implementation is disappointing, as gameplay just doesn’t feel right and leads to frustration.

Sniper Elite V2 Remastered Review

An unnecessary remaster that, while fun to play, can feel drab and tone-deaf overall.

Team Sonic Racing Review

A visually stunning and entertaining way to pass the time. As far as arcade racers go, this is definitely a solid one, though it isn’t entirely without flaws.

Pandemic Express – Zombie Escape Early Access Review

Though Pandemic Express is slightly barebones at this point in Early Access, it definitely has the potential to be a unique and impressive addition to the world of multiplayer zombie games.

God’s Trigger Review

This one has its heart in the right place, but falls short in execution.

World War Z Review

A fun and refreshing take on the zombie fighting co-op experience that is hindered by network lag and unimpressive AI.

Xenon Racer Review

Ideal for casual players or arcade racing fans not looking for too much of a challenge, Xenon Racer has pretty environments, futuristic cars, and varied tracks.

Generation Zero Review

An interesting take on the post-apocalyptic genre, full of beautiful vistas and a streamlined interface. Moments of awe are punctuated with run-ins with the buggy and inconsistent AI.

Outward Review

A difficult survival game with some interesting elements that is significantly hindered by tedious mechanics and a superficial world.

Battlefleet Gothic: Armada 2 Review

Fans and veterans of the 40k universe will no doubt enjoy Battlefleet Gothic: Armada 2, while it’s certainly still worth a look for newcomers interested in spaceship warfare.

Project Winter Early Access Review

Project Winter provides a refreshing take on the multiplayer survival genre and offers up some substantial promise, but is hindered by a variety of technical problems. With eight players per round, you and your fellow survivors must work together to survive the frigid landscape around you and combine your resources to call for help, all while avoiding the traitors among you and the vicious wildlife searching for their next meal. It’s a brutal world out there, and you can’t survive it alone.

Just Cause 4 Review

This entry in the Just Cause series has taken itself too seriously, sucking the fun out of what should be a blast.

Tick Tock: A Tale for Two Beta Review

Asymmetric multiplayer — the idea that different players have different abilities, roles, and perspectives in a game — is an interesting concept. It’s also an area of gaming that has potential for a lot more exploration, even though there are already some very clever concepts out there. In Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes, you work together to defuse bombs.

Hands-On: OVERKILL's The Walking Dead

From the developers of PayDay 2 comes the zombie-smashing, bandit-blasting, loot-scavenging, 4-player co-op title, OVERKILL’s The Walking Dead (OTWD). While this title is set to release on November 6th, the beta weekends have begun and testing is well underway for the pre-order masses. Bugs are plentiful and “clunkiness” is fairly rampant, but that’s what betas are for, right?

Door Kickers: Action Squad Review

Side-scrolling, door-booting, and criminal-annihilating, Door Kickers: Action Squad is sure to fill the “I haven’t blown anything up today” hole that is burning through your chest. With couch and online co-op, you and your partner can blast through terrorist-filled house after drug-lord-filled house together. Just don’t expect anything deeper than east to west shooting.

MONSTER HUNTER: WORLD Review

The first of its kind to be delivered to the salivating grasp of PC gamers, Monster Hunter: World has been well worth the wait as it delivers a breathtaking experience through a near-flawless port.

Strange Brigade Review

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.

Guacamelee! 2 Review

As a hilarious romp through the Mexiverse and the long-awaited follow-up to the original and beloved Guacamelee!, Guacamelee! 2, the metroidvania indie, delivers in every regard it should.

Dauntless Preview

Dauntless wears its inspiration openly, showing similarities to Monster Hunter: World. This could be a draw or a drawback for fans of Monster Hunter, but overall seems to be catching on quickly for players who enjoy its simplistic combat system.
