    • 75 Critic Score
    Uncomplicated but gratifying flying, in scenarios of increasing silliness and therefore likeability.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 68 Critic Score
    A fun relic of the early PS2 days that I still like a lot, but slightly too dated for most players to enjoy.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 73 Critic Score
    An odd hybrid of life sim and puzzle game where both flawed halves somehow work well together.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 84 Critic Score
    Work through the presentational ugliness and technical awkwardness, and you’ll find an experience of frightening depth.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 74 Critic Score
    An imaginative management game but a weak story generator.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 66 Critic Score
    Gris’s visual appeal hinders as much as it helps its exploration of grief.

    • 69 Critic Score
    DayZ has the power to create incredible stories, but the twitchy, weightless combat and buggy zombies let it down.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    Somehow in this most well-travelled of multiplayer FPS paths, Insurgency: Sandstorm feels fresh and innovative at every turn.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    Ashen's slant on the Soulslike subgenre isn't revolutionary, but is a wonderful example of the familiar formula executed well. It's thoughtful, gorgeous, challenging and a dream to explore.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 68 Critic Score
    Capy’s tough-love approach and well-worn survival systems makes it harder to appreciate Below’s singular look and feel.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 77 Critic Score
    Parkitect, for all its quality, is content to be a fairground attraction: fun and mechanically sound, but not something you’re going to queue up hours for.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 89 Critic Score
    A obsessively tuned, finely crafted shooter that more than recreates the speed and pure joy of '90s classics.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Building the best decks will cost you, but Artifact is an intricate and rewarding card game.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    Wonderfully weird and inventive. Katamari Damacy isn’t perfect, but it holds its own impressively well 14 years on.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 81 Critic Score
    While it lasts, Mutant Year Zero is a tense, absorbing and atmospheric new member of the XCOM family. I suppose wanting more of it is a good problem to have.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 77 Critic Score
    Imaginative, beautiful, and utterly strange, but you’ll need to really love the story to endure its idiosyncratic combat.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 73 Critic Score
    Still delivers the series' sandbox mayhem, but is underserved by some pretty dated systems.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 81 Critic Score
    A diet XCOM in a fascinating techno-cultist skin.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 62 Critic Score
    With less loot to grab, simplified platforming and easy puzzles, Darksiders 3 leans harder on its combat than previous games. And while Fury packs a punch, the wonky camera makes fights more frustrating that they should be. It doesn’t condemn Darksiders to oblivion, but it’s the lowlight of the series so far.

    • 25 Critic Score
    Riddled with bugs and bizarre mechanics, Underworld Ascendant is a bafflingly poor debut from OtherSide Entertainment.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Despite the considerable issues with the PC version, I've still had long stretches of fun with Fallout 76. I really wish PvP had more at stake then lost junk (or at least more willing participants) but the world retains a lot of what I love about Bethesda's previous RPGs with finely crafted environments, enjoyable weapons and crafting, and surprising little scraps of story to uncover and investigate.

    The Walking Dead gets the zombies and the theme just right, but everything else is a mess.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 79 Critic Score
    As chaotic and exhilarating as Battlefield has always been. Just don’t expect a dramatic reinvention of the series.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 84 Critic Score
    Essentially more of its predecessor but with a more consistent quality of levels. Which is fine: its predecessor was great.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 59 Critic Score
    A mediocre detective game with predictable stealth and a surreal story that runs out of steam near the end.
    • 40 Metascore
    • Critic Score
    It's a spectacular disaster, which feels like a rarity these days: there are lots of bad games, but for a game that was announced at E3 and made by a major publisher and studio to be this catastrophic is something.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Football Manager returns with a kitbag full of new and overhauled features. It's the best at what it does, and FM 19 is the best it's ever been.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 78 Critic Score
    Mostly delightful and sometimes punishing, Bad North is a fun alternative to more complex strategy games.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 88 Critic Score
    I listened to Wandersong's soundtrack while writing this review, and I've been happily jiggling my leg throughout.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 68 Critic Score
    An often spectacular space shooter that lacks the variety and depth to justify serious investment.
