Mass Effect Legendary Edition Review Part 1: Mass Effect

The first chapter's remaster removes many – but not all – of the caveats from my strong recommendation to revisit BioWare's epic sci-fi RPG from the beginning (or to play it for the first time).

Just Die Already Review

It has some slapstick ultraviolent humor going for it, but it's nowhere near as consistently funny as it is consistently janky to control.

Fast & Furious: Highway Heist Review

Simulating the speed and energy of the franchise upon which its based in a board game is good fun, even if replayability feels a bit limited.

Hood: Outlaws & Legends Review

A stealth-action game that rewards sloppiness over cunning. That can be fun, but it also badly needs more content.

Assassin's Creed Valhalla: Wrath of the Druids Review

A strong Irish story and a few interesting battles amid a sea of run-of-the-mill recycled quests make Wrath of the Druids worth a return trip to Assassin's Creed Valhalla.

Subnautica: Below Zero Review

A leaner but meaner follow-up to one of the best ever open-world survival games.

Resident Evil Village Review

A genuinely engrossing and increasingly combat-heavy continuation of the Ethan Winters story.

Returnal Review

Returnal's runs are too long for their own good, but the moment-to-moment action is phenomenal in this surprisingly lengthy and deep third-person shooter roguelike

Total War: Rome Remastered Review

This remaster makes a grand old game feel less old – but it doesn't make it feel new again.

New Pokémon Snap Review

A photography game with occasionally clunky progression, but which is eager to show off its delightful subjects and let them surprise you.

MotoGP 21 Review

MotoGP 21 is a good year for new riders to hop on but it hasn't particularly distanced itself much from MotoGP 20.

NieR Replicant Ver. 1.22474487139 Review

NieR Replicant is an action RPG with obvious flaws involving outdated quest design and repetitive combat, but those flaws are easily forgiven in light of its incredible characters, along with its unconventional and emotionally resonant story.

MLB The Show 21 Review

This isn't the generational leap forward we might've expected following a new console launch, but it's still the best baseball sim you can play on any platform.

Outriders Review

Our final review of Outriders, the co-op shooter from People Can Fly.

Pac-Man 99 Review

Fast and competitive gameplay keeps it fun even if we’re confined to just one maze.

Oddworld: Soulstorm Review

An excellent remake with charm, challenge... and loads of bugs.

Magic Legends Open Beta Review

The classic collectible card game’s action RPG adaptation loses something in translation.

Doom 3: VR Edition Review

Doom 3: VR Edition pales in comparison to other VR shooters, or even playing Doom 3 on a flat screen.

Arkham Horror: Mother's Embrace Review

Arkham Horror: Mother's Embrace's simple combat and uninspired "detective" work won't sate your Lovecraftian hunger.

Disco Elysium - The Final Cut Review

The Final Cut elevates Disco Elysium from an already phenomenal RPG to a true must-play masterpiece.
