An auto-moving strategy game, Swords and Soldiers 2: Shawarmageddon is a comic adventure with surprising strategic depth.

A revival of the old turn-based tactics game not seen since Final Fantasy Tactics Advanced, Fell Seal: Arbiter’s Mark has a bright future ahead of it.

From the seas comes the undead hordes of the Vampire Coast. Prepare yourself to either resist or bring the terrors of the oceans ashore as the sea-faring zombie pirates. From shambling musket-wielding warriors to shipwrecks reanimated into towering artillery pieces, you are sure to get your fix of piracy and destruction.

Underworld Ascendant is surprisingly unpolished and actively difficult to play. Without patches addressing the myriad bugs present in the current product, this one is a hard pass.

High on challenge and low on graphics intensity, this old-school remaster is well worth a look for RPG fans who either haven’t experience this trilogy yet, or who want to experience it again.

Conquer the Midnight Woods, defeat gruesome foes and out-do your friends in a new competitive multiplayer mode, entitled Gold Rush, coming free to fan favourite For The King, from the 26th.

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.

While City of the Shroud, a real-time strategy RPG, has some interesting design ideas in theory, in practice these designs fall flat.

Explore the Summerset Isles, the long closed-off home of the Altimer, where something sinister is happening to those arriving in the Isles. Summerset is a great second chapter for Elder Scrolls Online (ESO), allowing players to explore, challenge themselves with new and dangerous enemies, and learn about the Psijic Order that had disappeared over 300 years earlier.

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.

Omensight is a unique murder mystery that excels in narrative but is hindered by elementary combat.

Enjoy isometric computer roleplaying at its finest in The Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire, the latest title to deliver RPG players a wholly immersive and satisfying experience away from the tabletop.

Maelstrom navigates seas of endless potential with its ship-based battle royale system. Gorgeous seafaring visuals and deeply satisfying gameplay make this title gloriously promising in its infancy. Maelstrom’s path to success, however, has the potential to be just as perilous as its namesake — either swallowing the title into its vortex or hurling it into stardom.

For the King refuses to hold your hand, making it a real challenge that feels rewarding. Despite its slow combat, there’s a ton of enjoyable content to make it worth your while.

Grow your kingdom and unite the world in peace in Ni no Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom, an ambitious JRPG title that offers a visually astounding treat alongside (mostly) on-point gameplay.

Bethesda Softworks announced The Elder Scrolls Online: Summerset, the next Chapter of ZeniMax Online Studio’s online RPG, The Elder Scrolls Online (ESO). This year’s Chapter will send players to the Isle of Summerset to explore the home of the High Elves for the first time since 1994’s The Elder Scrolls: Arena. With a new zone, a main story, a new skill line based on the Psijic Order, and the introduction of Jewelry Crafting, The Elder Scrolls Online: Summerset was desinged to be an installment for both new and veteran players.

Secret of Mana (2018) makes for a nice jog down memory lane, even if there were some long-forgotten design flaws that years of nostalgic memories had blocked out over time. If you remember enjoying the SNES game, Secret of Mana holds onto many of what you liked about it back then. But if you’re looking for a polished, modernized version of the game, then you will be disappointed. For better or worse, not much has changed in Secret of Mana since its initial release in 1994.

Ultimately, Orch Star is a well-made title. You won’t encounter many bugs despite the Early Access sticker on the box, and the graphics are excellently rendered. If your only desire is to watch as a horde of betusked astronauts crush their enemies, this one is for you. Unfortunately, if your desire is to control a horde of betusked astronauts as they crush their enemies, then you will be left with little else to do but point-and-click.

This PC release of the 12th title in the mainline Final Fantasy series, originally released for the PS2 in 2006, sees many additions and improvements. Even if you haven't played the console version from back in the days, FFXII: THE ZODIAC AGE is a must-have for all who enjoy JRPG's filled with adventure.
