    Resident Evil 2 excels at putting the player in close quarters with things that will upset and unsettle them, always drawing them into ever more tense, disturbing fights.

    Ultimately, Kingdom Rush: Vengeance provides players with a competent tower defense title that stands out from the saturated genre thanks to its colourful art style, quirky story beats and its role-reversal on good versus evil.

    For as great as Bowser’s Inside Story is, it does little to justify busting out the 3DS again.

    Ace Combat 7 marks the spectacular return of a franchise that has been gone for far too long.

    The Shrouded Isle may lack variety, but it’s strong management systems and creepy aesthetic make it a worthwhile experience.

    Onimusha: Warlords is a somewhat rough but enjoyable adventure, making it worth revisiting.

    Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes is a great game that perfectly captures what I personally love about indie experiences.

    Tales of Vesperia continues to hold its spot as one of the best entries in the franchise, and was definitely an epic tale worth retelling for a new generation.

    I wanted to love Omensight: Definitive Edition, but I am left feeling both disappointed with the quality of the game and equally perplexed at how this Switch port turned out.

    If you’ve played the game on the Wii U to completion, then I’d recommend passing on this one as there is little new here outside of a stable framerate, Toadette, and the highly overrated HD rumble. But if you skipped the Wii U and loved Super Mario Bros. 3, then this is a must play. It’s challenging (there’s even a challenge mode for the True Gamers(tm)), it controls great, and it pays homage while still managing to expand on the series gameplay with a few clever new gimmicks, like baby Yoshi abilities.

    Ashen tries too hard and not hard enough to be both a Dark Souls clone and something different, and loses a lot in the process.

    The latest entry in RollerCoaster Tycoon franchise is less a Fun-House and more a nauseating ride on the Tilt-o-Whirl.

    Atari Flashback Classics offers a vast look back into the history of an important time in games, but may offer little of interest to those without nostalgic feelings for it.

    Below is a punishing dungeon crawler, mixing elements from roguelikes, Dark Souls and survival games to create an often painful, yet oddly enticing action-adventure game.

    Battletech Flashpoint isn’t really a must own expansion, but it is certainly worth it for players looking for more.

    Few titles seem to capture the timelessness that Katamari Damacy Reroll does, with bright visuals and a silly play style that are just as fun and unique now as they were years ago.

    Gris is a game about loss wrapped up in one, truly stunning package that should be experienced by everyone.
    • 75 Metascore

    With an emphasis on stealth and a healthy dose of absurdity, Mutant Year Zero is a unique take on the XCOM formula that is as challenging as it is engaging.

    Rapture Rejects offers style over substance, capturing the feel of Cyanide and Happiness without working out the issues that style carries.
    • 72 Metascore

    Earth Defense Force 5 mixes a compelling sense of power and powerlessness, creating chaotic, overwhelming battles filled with laughter and drama that make it hard to put down.

    The newest entry in the Smash Bros series truly earns the title of Ultimate.

    Joggernauts is a stirred mess throughout, and while most of its current issues could be resolved through patches, updates, and perhaps a new platform of choice, it’s current Switch version is simply not there yet.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A unique and creative horror game filled with boring puzzles and clunky combat.
    • 82 Metascore

    Spyro Reignited Trilogy is a solid remaster for those looking to play as gaming’s most famous purple dragons.

    Dancing in Moonlight uses twelve years of songs to bring the Persona 3 cast the musical tribute they deserve.

    Dancing in Starlight pays a loving tribute to Persona 5, but without a stronger setlist it doesn’t stand alongside its fellow rhythm game spin-offs.
    • 63 Metascore

    It’s just not sure what kind of game it wants to be. It either needed to fully commit to the style of past games or or embrace its new tactical combat wholeheartedly, and it’s disappointing to see it embrace neither. Far from being a triumphant return, Darksiders 3 is easily the low point for the series.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    Pool Panic is an absurd puzzle game that breathes new life into the game of pool despite some control issues.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 35 Critic Score
    PUNCH LINE fails to engage the player in any way, its play and story lifeless.

    Fallout 76 has potential. It’s there, past the bugs and glitches that pervade the experience. Past the frequently disappointing quests and the unfulfilling locales. Past the dreary combat and the multiplayer that is as much a focus of the entire game as it is an afterthought in design. Past the sense that war has changed, and that Bethesda will continue to push Fallout further away from the elements that made the franchise so popular in the first place...Past all of that, Fallout 76 can be enjoyable. But to get that enjoyment, you have to put up with far too much.
