    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.

    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.
