Reviewed by Tristan Ogilvie on Nintendo Switch. “Deadly Premonition 2 isn’t good, nor is it so bad that it’s good (like it’s predecessor). It’s something much, much worse: it’s mediocre. And that’s too bad. I’m certainly grateful for the chance to spend some more time with the eccentric and ever enthusiastic Francis York Morgan, because

Reviewed by Luke Reilly on Xbox One X. Also available on PlayStation 4, PC, and Google Stadia. “F1 2020 is simultaneously the deepest yet most accessible Codemasters Formula One experience to date.

Phantom: Covert Ops reviewed by Dan Stapleton on PC with Oculus Rift S. Also available on Oculus Quest. “Let me say up front that I’m in no way saying that no special forces commando has ever stealthily infiltrated an enemy stronghold exclusively via kayak without ever setting foot on land. I mean, if such a

Assetto Corsa Competizione reviewed by Luke Reilly on Xbox One X. Also available on PlayStation 4. “When going toe-to-toe with some evenly matched AI as the sun sets through the trees, Assetto Corsa Competizione’s console version settles into a pretty satisfying groove.

Torchlight 3 Early Access reviewed by T.J. Hafer on PC. “There’s nothing desperately wrong with Torchlight 3, which just came out in Early Access form a week ago. It’s a flashy, bombastic, nicely-paced action-RPG with tons of enemies to slash, blast, and explode for the tasty loot inside. The problem is that it doesn’t really

Waking reviewed by Terence Wiggins on PC. Also available on Xbox One. “Everyone has their shortlist of favorite food and drinks. You might like pizza, steak, red velvet cake, and chamomile tea.

Little Orpheus reviewed by Leif Johnson on iPhone 11 Pro via Apple Arcade. “There’s not much to Little Orpheus’s gameplay apart from moving left to right, jumping, and interacting with a few objects, but that’s compensated by stellar voice acting and gorgeous settings to journey through. You’ll find some light puzzles and platforming challenges here,

Valorant reviewed by Kyle Campbell on PC. “Nail-biting bomb plants, hip fire headshots, and hypernatural flicks of the wrist are the tenets of Valorant. This 5v5 tactical hero shooter by League of Legends developer Riot Games had a stranglehold on me from my first carefully strategized victory. Now, after clocking 90 hours between the closed

Reviewed by Tristan Ogilvie on PlayStation 4. Also available on Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC. “Those Who Remain features an eerie atmosphere, inventive puzzles, and some moments of genuine tension via its shape-shifting world, but fussy controls, one-dimensional stealth, and a narrative that lacks cohesion prevent it from stepping completely out of the darkness

Crucible reviewed by Kyle Campbell on PC. “Crucible plucks popular staples from all over esports, attempting to forge a greater whole through the fires of interstellar warfare.

Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition reviewed by Travis Northup on Nintendo Switch. “For a story where controlling the future is a critical plot device, it’s pretty ironic that Xenoblade Chronicles has never managed to get its timing right until now.

Deep Rock Galactic reviewed by T.J. Hafer on PC. Also available on Xbox One. “A co-op shooter about space dwarves mining, drinking, and blasting aliens across diverse underground levels with a variety of explosives and other heavy weaponry is a premise that gets my beard twitching before I’ve even strapped a helmet on – and

Reviewed by Mitchell Saltzman on PC and Switch. Also available on PlayStation 4. The Wonderful 101: Remastered doesn’t do much to earn its “Remastered” distinction, but nonetheless, this is still absolutely the best way to experience one of the best action games of a generation. #ign
