  • Fe review - uneven indie from EA Originals

    An earnest eco-platformer that is at once under and overcooked.

    PC PS4 PS4 Pro Switch One

  • Subnautica review

    An oppressively beautiful portrayal of an undersea environment, and a well-wrought survival game with a vaguely eco-friendly message.

    Recommended PC One

  • Sonic Forces review

    Though not without its moments, Forces is a depressing return to form for Sonic the Hedgehog after the joys of Mania.

    PS4 PS4 Pro Switch One One X

  • Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus review

    Vicious, affecting, witty, spaced-out, crude, inventive, morbid and for the most part, a success.

    Recommended PC PS4 PS4 Pro One One X

  • The Evil Within 2 review

    Resident Evil 4 meets the Truman Show in an entertaining but unremarkable follow-up, held back by tepid stealth and warmed-over scares.

    PC PS4 One

  • Ruiner review

    A powerfully grim, fleet-footed cyberpunk action odyssey that is caught in the spell of its own nihilism.

    PC PS4 One

  • Heat Signature review

    A scrappy, open-ended infiltrator's delight for the player who enjoys breaking levels more than beating them.

    Recommended PC

  • Dishonored: Death of the Outsider review

    A morbid, potent epilogue for Dishonored 2 equipped with new powers, some great locations and some overdue tweaks.

    Recommended PC PS4 One

  • Absolver review

    A one-of-a-kind blend of blood-thumping martial arts, combo curation and grindy multiplayer set in a ravishing wasteland.

    Recommended PC PS4 One

  • Observer review

    A splendid hybrid of CSI, cyberpunk and Silent Hill woven around a potent central performance, spoiled a bit by unconvincing scare tactics.

    Recommended PC PS4 One

  • Sonic Mania review

    1992 is alive and well. Christian Whitehead and team turn in a beautiful rewrite of the 16-bit Sonic games with all-new stages.

    Essential PC PS4 Switch One

  • Sundered review

    A sublime blend of Metroidvania and Lovecraft with beautiful hand-drawn art, tarnished a little by the element of repetition.

    Recommended PC PS4

  • The Shrouded Isle review

    A winningly nasty turn-based cult sim with beautiful monochrome art and surgical orchestral audio.

    Recommended PC

  • Tacoma review

    A short, sweet translation of Gone Home's cosy environmental storytelling into the realm of speculative fiction.

    Recommended Mac PC One

  • Get Even review

    A trashy, overwrought psychodrama with the odd inspired touch that alternates between simple forensic puzzles and gimmicky gunplay.

    PC PS4 One

  • Prey review

    An ornate and clever if slightly under-cooked System Shock successor, which makes the most of a truly magnificent space station setting.

    Recommended PC PS4 One

  • Outlast 2 review

    A wobbly first-person horror whose moments of splendid unease are spoiled by clunky stealth, casual misogyny and warmed-over scares.

    PC PS4 One

  • Little Nightmares review

    Media Molecule protégé Tarsier turns in a masterpiece of meat and malice, swiftly consumed but with a lingering aftertaste.

    Recommended PC PS4 One

  • The Sexy Brutale review

    A perfectly horrid, wonderfully thought-out mixture of Majora's Mask-style time rewinding and Metroidvania exploration.

    Recommended PC PS4 One

  • The Signal from Tölva review

    A wasteland you'll love to wander, but not a game you'll necessarily relish, The Signal from Tölva is a dark, frustrating work.

    Mac PC

  • Yooka-Laylee review

    Playtonic's tribute to Banjo is a gentle, irreverent platformer let down by spotty handling and a slight shortage of genius.

    PC PS4 Switch One

  • Mass Effect: Andromeda review

    The combat crackles and the worlds are lush, but mediocre writing and tepid quests add up to what is probably BioWare's worst RPG yet.

    PC PS4 One

  • Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Wildlands review

    Beautiful yet callous, Wildlands is a serviceable open worlder with strong co-op that doesn't quite put the Ghosts back on the map.

    PC PS4 One

  • Night in the Woods review

    A witty smalltown adventure with light puzzle-platforming elements that walks the line between nostalgia and nihilism.

    Recommended PC PS4

  • For Honor review

    For Honor is a terrific, brutal mix of Ubisoft-brand third-person game design and proven fighting game principles.

    Recommended PC PS4 One

  • Hitman: The Complete First Season review

    With six episodes under its belt, Hitman has proven itself to be a decadent, deadly comeback for Io Interactive.

    Recommended PC PS4 One

  • Resident Evil 7: Biohazard review

    Resident Evil goes back to its founding principles for a more cohesive and chilling breed of horror game that stops short of greatness.

    PC PS4 One

  • Dead Rising 4 review

    A brainless, buggy open-world game that's forgotten the second you put down the pad.


  • Dishonored 2 review

    Arkane manages to better the already exceptional Dishonored in nearly every way, creating a masterpiece of open-ended design.

    Essential PC PS4 One

  • Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare review

    Infinity Ward's return is a substantial, spectacular package, but it doesn't innovate enough to stick in the memory.
