    Yeah, it all looks really good when it works, but that doesn't help the problems of the base game. [Issue#272, p.59]

    • 68 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    A wrong-headed sequel that doesn't really address most of its predecessors' problems. [Issue#272, p.48]

    • tbd Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Slick controls, great writing, and a solar-system-wide mystery to unravel - what's not to love? [Issue#272, p.46]
    • PC PowerPlay
    • 86 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A terrific plot, excellent characters, and fantastic worldbuilding elevate the game's unexciting puzzles. [Issue#272, p.44]

    • 73 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Taut, thrilling, and full of twisty new takes on a classic gaming formula, Phantom Doctrine is our new strategic addiction.
    • 89 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    An addictive and punishing romp that rewards creative builds and cool heads under immense (and constant) pressure.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    A deceptively realistic racing game that doesn't care if you want to ignore the details and just smash every car on the track.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A gorgeous game in looks, but repetitive and miserly in its gameplay. And that voice acting - UGH!
    • 65 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Fast, intense, adrenaline pumping stuff... but without that special something that makes it a true Wipeout successor,
    • 72 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Some marvelous mechanics don't add up to enough to detract from stilted writing, an overly grim aesthetic, and repetitive combat.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Not the greatest writing, but the game's many overlapping mechanics make for some great emergent storytelling. [Issue#271, p.54]

    • 80 Critic Score
    One of Telltale's best seasons, and a Batman tale that finds something new to do with the Joker. [Issue#271, p.50]

    There is a great game under all the bugs, but for now my experience of the game makes it hard to recommend.

    The game is really quite brutal, but individual runs quite short. It’s a perfect palate-cleaner game – quick to load, easy to switch to from other applications, and over pretty fast. Unless you’re good at it, which, you know… I’m pretty much not. But it’s also just wonderfully silly fun. Bright, chaotic in the all the best ways, and always surprising.

    Well, pardner, I'd suggest you ride far, far away. Buy an Xbox and wait for Red Dead Redemption 2 if you have-ter.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    A promising sequel that, despite its improvements on the original, still retains as many bugs as it does zombies.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    The Forest frequently flirts with perfection. A fantastic and engrossing survival-horror experience from start to finish.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    With enough tweaks to make the game feel fresh, and enough of the same formula to keep the game comfortable, this is a great Total War entry.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Though repetitive with stacks of downtime, Frostpunk has a strangely addictive gameplay loop (more so, I imagine, if you emotionally connect with your people).
    • 74 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Cute and relatable, and very enjoyable in small, perfectly formed chunks. Much like each new Sword of Ditto!
    • 81 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Revenant Kingdom is one of those games that suffers for being a sequel to something that was a bit special. It's a good oddball JRPG. But Wrath of the White Witch had great storytelling, compelling characters, and epic boss fights. Revenant Kingdom just feels... smaller.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    An almost too accurate reimagination of Age of Empires, in both the best and worst possible ways.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A near-enlightening shooter experience held back by big-disclaimer co-op and dark-grey microtransactions.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    An ambitious game that manages to pack in a beautiful open world, complex survival challenges, and lots of teeth. [Issue#270, p.59]
    • PC PowerPlay
    • 87 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    A retro game that delivers more wonderful gameplay than nostalgia. [Issue#270, p.58]
    • PC PowerPlay
    • 79 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Rise & Fall doesn't reinvent Civ VI but it does expand its repertoire in meaningful ways. [Issue#270, p.56]
    • PC PowerPlay
    • 67 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    First and foremost a game, the anthropology lessons are happy to sit in the background. [Issue#270, p.55]

    • 85 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    An excellent fighting game, even if you're not a fan of Dragon Ball. [Issue#270, p.54]
    • PC PowerPlay
    • 74 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    A wonderful, strange, sad trek through the myth of America. [Issue#270, p.52]
    • PC PowerPlay
    • 76 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    An unflinchingly hardcore RPG that trades promises of "realism" for just another fantasy. [Issue#270, p.49]
