    A competent yet ultimately insignificant addition. While the core shooting still delights, the lacklustre campaign is entirely skippable. [Issue#150, p.96]

    This fantastic future sport is easy to learn but difficult to put down, and the very agreeable price point makes this a title that you won't want to leave on the bench. Rocket League has a rival. [Issue#150, p.86]

    While stiff in some ways, Forgotton Anne is gorgeous, and has one of the freshest and most charming worlds and story we've seen in a long while. It'll definitely linger in the memory. [Issue#150, p.92]

    A fantasy brawler mistaking excess for depth. With no new content, there's less incentive to revisit Dragon's Crown, though new players can still find fun with friends. [Issue#150, p.95]

    Exiles tries to expand beyond the traditional Conan power fantasy, but has a frustrating lack of polish that affects any enjoyment. It's a missed opportunity. [Issue#150, p.89]

    A half-baked novelty. One for the curious but certainly not the powerful story that it could have been. [Issue#150, p.88]

    Fans of the show won't won't want to miss the chance to bask in the wonder of Luna Nova. [Issue#150, p.88]

    • 70 Critic Score
    The lack of an engaging drama or choice means this one isn't so much a digital page-turner but best enjoyed at your leisure, ideally with a nice cool drink to hand. [Issue#150, p.88]

    Frequent death promotes experimentation with an impressive collection of weaponry and party member traits, making this great for a quick trip and less something for lengthy sessions. [Issue#150, p.94]

    Boss fights involve light puzzle elements, but once you've figured out the gimmick, victory is quickly mashed out. [Issue#150, p.94]

    A gripping story filled with emotional and thrilling moments. Twists and turns in the narrative feel very well done, and may leave you feeling shaken. [Issue#150, p.94]

    There's potential here for a devilishly tactical racer, but the reality is dull and unbalanced. [Issue#150, p.90]

    While it offers enjoyable and challenging platforming with a delightful visual style, the overall experience is hampered by the frustration at having to repeatedly redo the same gruelling sections. [Issue#150, p.90]

    Though Tacoma's crew inhabit a far flung future with problems to match, I found myself believing in their relationships. [Issue#150, p.90]

    A more-than-passable first effort from a studio more famous for its cricketing output - yet presentation and longevity issues make it less excellent, more AO-K. [Issue#150, p.91]

    Held together by beautifully chromed nuts and bolts, closer inspection reveals questionable lines of code - Detroit fails to be more than the sum of its parts. [July 2018, p.83]

    If you like this style of dungeon exploration, then this is a fantastically made one you can play co-op that's essentially endless, and what's not to love about that? [June 2018, p.85]

    • 42 Metascore
    • 20 Critic Score
    One of the most unfinished, least fun games of recent years, and almost unplayably jerky on a standard PS4. A total disaster of a game. [June 2018, p.97]

    • 90 Critic Score
    Gripping and entertaining, with an identity all of its own, this is easily one of the best indie adventures you can get. Otus and chums will get you hooked. We're not tawny on the verdict on this one. [June 2018, p.82]

    This PS4 exclusive still merits Hall of Fame consideration, but with nothing truly original it will feel underwhelming to the hardcores. For casual players, it's a must-buy. [June 2018, p.89]

    A mostly excellent sandbox that delights with its gorgeous world, breadth of activities, and stellar shootouts. It can be a bit grindy, mind.[June 2018, p.93]

    By turns mildly irritating and laceratingly dull, Extinction is a hopeless mess with one of the worst third-person cameras you'll ever encounter. Give it a miss, eh? [June 2018, p.86]

    • 50 Critic Score
    Sadly, though, you'll spend more time fighting the controller than the enemies on screen. [June 2018, p.88]

    Ultimately it's a sparse game that leaves us quite cold. [June 2018, p.88]

    If you can see beyond the horrible graphics, Operation Warcade will scratch that VR shooter itch. [June 2018, p.88]

    At just over two hours Crisis is short. [June 2018, p.80]

    It's not overly long and the price is right, so if you fancy something different and clever, with just enough characters to keep you going, Minit might well be the one for you. [June 2018, p.80]

    • 40 Critic Score
    It's all too simple, and a little basic, and aside from brief moments of arcade fun brings little new to PS VR. [June 2018, p.80]

    A roguelite first-person platformer that demands to be replayed, City of Brass offers a level of freedom few games can match. It never gets old, even on your hundredth run-through. [June 2018, p.90]

    • 74 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Beneath this modest exterior lies an absorbing adventure. Its endearing narrative will draw you in and its superb fusion of action and tactics will keep you hooked. [June 2018, p.96]
