Warhammer: Chaosbane Review

Holy crap, there’ve been a lot of Warhammer games lately! But few have been as good as Warhammer: Chaosbane. This action-RPG has it where it counts, with fun classes, good boss fights, and a decent loot system. It trips up

Outer Wilds Review

Legitimate discovery is a difficult sensation to simulate in a video game. Countless worlds smother us with lore and histories, giving us the opportunity to understand them better if we choose to stop and smell the roses, but that understanding

Blood and Truth PSVR Review

I think it was the third time I shouted “This is so f*****g” cool!” during one of Blood & Truth’s many enthralling glide-and-gun sequences that I realized just how much I had wanted an experience like it for the PlayStation

Cricket 19 Review

After a well-intentioned yet ultimately disappointing detour into the NBA Jam-inspired, super-powered swashbuckling of 2018’s Big Bash Boom, Big Ant Studios has made a confident return to the more traditional cricket game crease with Cricket 19. Using the core engine

Assassin's Creed III Remastered for Switch Review

The Nintendo Switch version of Assassin’s Creed III Remastered is the version I most wanted to play after hearing the initial announcement. The idea of taking a last-gen console Assassin’s Creed game and putting it on Switch sounded totally within

Layers of Fear 2 Review

Equal parts unsettling, moving, and eerily beautiful, Layers of Fear 2 is an astonishing feat of storytelling viewed through an off-kilter horror lens that consistently surprised me. It’s a marked improvement on the 2016 original; developer Bloober Team has created

Mordhau Review

I pull back my giant Zweihänder sword, ready for a stab, and then cancel my attack at the last second. My opponent falls for it, parrying a blow that never arrives. I haven’t dealt any damage yet, but in that
