    Initially stunning but lacking the depth and variety to support mammoth playtimes.

    A blend of mismatched genres that somehow works, Yoku’s Island Express is a beguiling game of modest brilliance.

    Moonlighter is a cute and casual revival of an uncommon mashup but doesn’t stick around to push the boundaries.

    • 68 Critic Score
    There are some brilliant, original ideas in here, but Vampyr tries to do too much at once and suffers for it.

    Made with affection and artistry, this retro appetiser is a very pleasant surprise.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    A dark, engrossing, and challenging narrative card and crafting game.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 86 Critic Score
    Warframe's daunting complexity doesn't detract from its delicious combat and flexible progression.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 74 Critic Score
    A solid survival game vastly improved by putting the focus on people, not zombies.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    A puzzle-platformer that's elevated by its winsome anime aesthetic.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 65 Critic Score
    Broad in shoulder, wide in scope, rough around the edges. Nevertheless, an enjoyably meaty survival game.

    It’s got its hooks into me: it’s a better game than the original in every way, and it nails the battle between pitcher and batter that’s at the heart of baseball. If you’re a fan of the sport, it’s a must-own.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 49 Critic Score
    There is potential for amusing cat-and-mouse exchanges, but a lobby full of humans is hard to find.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 88 Critic Score
    A massive, bountiful RPG with richly descriptive writing, a well-realised setting, and deep tactical combat.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 71 Critic Score
    Dead in Vinland combines resource management, RPG combat, uneven writing, and a lot of diciness into something I couldn't stop playing until I finished it.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 73 Critic Score
    A brilliant early game and bold experiments almost make up for the AI niggles and the boring march to the final battle.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    A sometimes tricky RPG with gorgeous art that's perfect for co-op.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 79 Critic Score
    Familiar, lightweight but almost impossible to dislike, this is an effortlessly enjoyable action RPG.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    A deep tactical wargame with strong fundamentals supporting a broadly successful campaign system.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 89 Critic Score
    Frostpunk is a stressful, stylish, and addictive survival management game filled with incredibly difficult choices.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A beautiful medieval adventure that uses real history and interesting characters to tell a compelling story.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 58 Critic Score
    Impressive ogre battles and challenging, hectic missions, but I just wish there was a bit more to Extinction.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 69 Critic Score
    The problem with this is that death, rather than some looming, ominous, ever-present threat, becomes little more than a minor inconvenience. And sometimes, when you’re stuck on a puzzle, it can be annoying too. Minit has no real stakes, which cheapens the timer system and makes it feel somewhat arbitrary.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The wonderful chaos of the open world and your choice of how to tackle it is occasionally stifled by bad boss fights and worse boss speeches.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 72 Critic Score
    A superb water park for four friends to splash around in, but progression is sluggish and there are too few surprises beneath the waves.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 64 Critic Score
    Messy, varied and inadvertently hilarious: A Way Out is an unusual but uneven tandem ride.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 79 Critic Score
    Octahedron gets more mileage than you'd think out of the ability to summon platforms beneath your feet.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 84 Critic Score
    Northgard is a surprising, elegant RTS that's laden with a very dull story.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Without Evermore, Ni No Kuni 2 would have been good. Because of it, it's one of the best JRPGs on PC.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Surviving Mars is a lot of hard work, but managing a burgeoning colony never stops being compelling.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 82 Critic Score
    KSP's sandbox gets bigger by focusing on what makes it a great PC game: flexibility, freedom, and random explosions.
