    Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition (PS5) Review

    by Rik Henderson
    Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition (PS5) Review
    It's great to revisit the streets of Liberty City, Vice City and the multiple locations in San Andreas. Added to the great stories and acting are new combat and movement controls from GTA: V and some nice looking textures in 4K. Unfortunately, no amount of nostalgic, rose-tinted fuzziness can skirt the fact there are loads of bugs and some odd remastering choices.

    Battlefield 2042 (Xbox Series X) Review

    by Ian Collen
    Battlefield 2042 (Xbox Series X) Review
    Focusing purely on multiplayer, with up to 128 players causing unbridled chaos across PCs and new-gen consoles, 2042 certainly delivers on spectacle; but when it comes to the actual gameplay it’s a little more hit and miss…

    Call of Duty: Vanguard (PS5) Review

    by Rik Henderson
    Call of Duty: Vanguard (PS5) Review
    It's good to be back in the WWII fray with a punchy, great-looking campaign mode employing a number of strategies and gameplay styles. There's a slightly underwhelming multiplayer mode but the zombies make up for it.

    Forza Horizon 5 (Xbox Series X) Review

    by Rik Henderson
    Forza Horizon 5 (Xbox Series X) Review
    Forza Horizon 5 features the largest and most diverse map in the arcade driving series, a new weather system and mini multiplayer games alongside a huge number of cars to add to your collection. Is all this enough to make it stand out from its excellent predecessor?

    Guardians of the Galaxy (PS5) Review

    by Rik Henderson
    Guardians of the Galaxy (PS5) Review
    After the po-faced and worthy The Avengers, Square Enix shifts gear to an altogether more light-hearted and bants filled experience for Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy, which maintains a decidedly old school single player approach. And remember, don't call them 'Plucky', they don't know what it means,...

    Death Stranding Director's Cut (PS5) Review

    by Rik Henderson
    Death Stranding Director's Cut (PS5) Review
    Sony's makeover of 2019's Death Stranding for the PS5 polishes an already stunning world and adds some new weapons and side missions... but does it make the story any less bamboozling?

    Far Cry 6 Review (Xbox Series X)

    by Ian Collen
    Far Cry 6 Review (Xbox Series X)
    The only revolution on display is the uprising you’ll get to lead into battle, as Far Cry 6 focuses purely on delivering more of what made the series great in the first place.

    FIFA 22 Review (Xbox Series X)

    by Ian Collen
    FIFA 22 Review (Xbox Series X)
    The annual upgrade offers some nice touches and impressive visual polish for new-gen consoles but bereft of any big-name signings the series is beginning to lack real personality.

    Lost in Random (Xbox Series X) Review

    by Ian Collen
    Lost in Random (Xbox Series X) Review
    It’s far from perfect, but this delightfully twisted adventure combines a great backdrop and quirky storyline with a strategic combat system for a frequently weird and wonderful experience.

    Psychonauts 2 (Xbox Series X) Review

    by Ian Collen
    Psychonauts 2 (Xbox Series X) Review
    If the 2005 original was something of a sleeper hit, the hotly-anticipated Psychonauts 2 jumps straight into the mainstream with a wonderfully creative and beautifully presented sequel.

    Ghost of Tsushima Director's Cut (PS5) Review

    by Rik Henderson
    Ghost of Tsushima Director's Cut (PS5) Review
    Ghost of Tsushima was one of the last great PlayStation 4 exclusives and quite possibly the best-looking game of the last generation. Now available as an updated Director's Cut version, we see how it looks and plays on Sony's newest console.

    Hades Review (Xbox Series X)
    Previously launched on PC and Switch, this award-winning rogue-like dungeon crawler gets an HD upgrade for consoles, and it’s never looked or played better.

    F1 2021 (Xbox Series X) Review
    Once again Codemasters delivers an excellent racing experience, even if this isn’t quite the new-gen leap forward we’d all been hoping for.

    Biomutant (Xbox One) Review

    by Ian Collen
    Biomutant (Xbox One) Review
    Taking some obvious cues from the greats of the RPG genre, Biomutant is a charming action-adventure that’s light on action but has a rich open world that’s ripe for leisurely looting and near-endless exploration.

    Resident Evil Village (Xbox One) Review
    Picking up where Biohazard left off, Resident Evil Village builds upon this very welcome return to form, dipping back into the classics from this now 25-year-old series to add a little more action to its survival-horror origins.

    Outriders Review (Xbox One)

    by Ian Collen
    Outriders Review (Xbox One)
    It’s had its share of tech issues, but this RPG shooter-looter takes inspiration from the classics to deliver some of the best fun-and-gun action around. Outriders is great on your own, but even better with friends.
