Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Review

‘Call of Duty: Black Ops 4’ review

‘Call of Duty: Black Ops 4’ review

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4’s omission of a campaign could have been a deal breaker, but multiplayer, Zombies, and the new Blackout mode make it one of the best shooters of the year. In abandoning campaign mode, Treyarch may have also set a new standard for battle royale.
Assassin's Creed Odyssey review

‘Assassin’s Creed Odyssey’ review

‘Assassin’s Creed Odyssey’ review

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey features an impressive and lavish open world that far exceeds the size of its predecessors. Unfortunately, the compelling family story is hindered by repetition and needless level grinding.

‘Destiny 2: Forsaken’ review

‘Destiny 2: Forsaken’ review

"Forsaken" marks the biggest expansion yet for "Destiny 2," and though it starts slow with a revenge tale that doesn't quite work, it hits a stride in its later hours that will keep fans of the game invested for a long time, with plenty of fun things to do and weird places to explore.

‘FIFA 19’ review

‘FIFA 19’ review

FIFA 19 is still a great way to play virtual soccer, but the changes made in this year’s game don’t push the series forward, and The Journey story mode stumbles in its final installment. Diehard soccer fans will find plenty to love across its variety of modes, however, including the always-great Ultimate Team.

‘NBA 2K19’ review

‘NBA 2K19’ review

NBA 2K19 takes strides in many facets of the gameplay with the end result being an experience that harps on user skill and playing disciplined basketball. MyCareer also benefits in a few major ways to make the story mode better than ever.

‘Shadow of the Tomb Raider’ review

‘Shadow of the Tomb Raider’ review

‘Shadow of the Tomb Raider’ understands what made the previous games adrenaline-pumping fun. Its world is filled with secrets, tombs, treasure, and hidden areas just waiting to be discovered. With wonderful performances from its cast and a tremendous final act, it’s a must-play.
Into the Breach Review

‘Into the Breach’ Review

‘Into the Breach’ Review

‘FTL’ developer Subset Games took its sweet time making its second game, but mechs-versus-kaiju strategy game Into the Breach is well worth the wait.
Dragon Quest XI review

‘Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age’ review

‘Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age’ review

‘Dragon Quest XI’ is the latest entry in the long-running ‘Dragon Quest’ series, serving up a decadent platter of classic role-playing, combat, and character-building that offers a little something for everyone.

‘World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth’ Review

‘World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth’ Review

‘Battle for Azeroth,’ the newest expansion to World of Warcraft, promises to put you in the middle of a new war between the Alliance and Horde. The plot too quickly unravels into dull fetch quests, but the game’s variety keeps you itching to log in it even as the story disappoints.

F1 2018 review

F1 2018 review

F1 2018 strives for authenticity. The result is a demanding racing game that will overwhelm your senses – but it’s also among the most entertaining, and realistic, simulators we’ve ever played. This F1 2018 review digs deep into Codemasters’ latest entry in this long-running game franchise.
Madden NFL 19 Review

‘Madden NFL 19’ review

‘Madden NFL 19’ review

Madden NFL 19 feels very similar to last year’s iteration in many ways. Small improvements to the run game and player mobility adds polish to an already refined experience, while a more accessible Ultimate Team and custom draft classes offset the utter disappointment that is Longshot: Homecoming.
No Man's Sky

‘No Man’s Sky’ review

‘No Man’s Sky’ review

After two years of free updates, "No Man's Sky" is finally the game many players expected when it was first released. Though it's a greatly improved version of the open, endlessly explorable galaxy originally promised, "No Man's Sky" remains an experience that can be awe-inspiring or strikingly tedious.
Battlefield 5

‘Battlefield V’ Closed Alpha hands-on review

‘Battlefield V’ Closed Alpha hands-on review

Battlefield V, the latest iteration in the long-running Battlefield series, tries to force players into working together as an army. It’s somewhat successful, and certainly lends itself to battle at massive scales, though the chaos of combat can become overwhelming.
Mario Tennis Aces

‘Mario Tennis Aces’ review

‘Mario Tennis Aces’ review

The Nintendo Switch exclusive Mario Tennis Aces delivers a great game of tennis loaded with colorful characters, wacky abilities, and a surprising amount of strategy, but its limited modes and brief story campaign may not keep your attention for more than a couple of days.
starlink battle for atlas review 14

‘Starlink: Battle for Atlas’ hands-on preview

‘Starlink: Battle for Atlas’ hands-on preview

‘Starlink: Battle for Atlas’ is a smart next step for toys-to-life, adding interaction to the toys themselves. In practice, however, it didn’t necessarily enhance the gameplay enough to justify all the additional expense that the genre entails. Cool spaceship toys don’t buy themselves.

‘Ori and the Will of the Wisps’ hands-on preview

‘Ori and the Will of the Wisps’ hands-on preview

We loved the tough and beautiful 2015 indie gem ‘Ori and the Blind Forest.’ Microsoft and Moon Studios are back with a sequel, coming in 2019, and it looks to have more of everything we so adored about the first game.

‘Command & Conquer: Rivals’ hands-on preview

‘Command & Conquer: Rivals’ hands-on preview

Electronic Arts has translated "Command & Conquer" to mobile platforms, creating a fast-paced competitive multiplayer experience that's easy to pick up, but also deep enough to satisfy strategy players' cravings for smart, tactical warfare.
The Crew 2 review

‘The Crew 2’ hands-on preview

‘The Crew 2’ hands-on preview

Ubisoft’s upcoming open world racing sequel ‘The Crew 2’ adds planes, boats and a staggering menu of activities for you to try out, but its smartest addition might be a renewed focus on the world racing community. There’s no shortage of activities on land, sea, and in the air.
Detroit: Become Human Review

‘Detroit: Become Human’ Review

‘Detroit: Become Human’ Review

‘Detroit: Become Human’ is the latest from ‘Heavy Rain’ and ‘Beyond: Two Souls’ designer David Cage, pushing his vision of games as playable movies further than it’s ever gone. The results are mixed, but it’s an undeniable accomplishment of adventure games.
Dreams review

‘Dreams’ hands-on preview

‘Dreams’ hands-on preview

Media Molecule's game-, movie-, music- and artwork-creation tool "Dreams" is going to make it ridiculously simple for anyone to make, share and play video games, and a lot of other things, with their PlayStation 4s. It really is as easy as it looks.
State of Decay 2 Review

State of Decay 2 Review

State of Decay 2 Review

State of Decay 2 struggles with technical issues, despite its inventive take on the zombie survival genre. Cooperative multiplayer and flexible play may appeal to some, but most should steer clear due to pacing issues and a barrage of bugs, some of which can bring your adventure to a halt.
Destiny 2: Warmind review

‘Destiny 2: Warmind’ review

‘Destiny 2: Warmind’ review

The improvements to Destiny 2 that come with its second expansion, Warmind, are welcome, and it's a big step up from the last outing, Curse of Osiris. A lot of repetition means this still doesn’t feel like the top of Bungie’s game, though.
Assassins Creed Origins Review

‘Assassin’s Creed Origins’ review

‘Assassin’s Creed Origins’ review

Assassin’s Creed Origins doesn’t rely on the series strengths, and fails to create new ones. Read why in our review.

Nintendo Labo review

Nintendo Labo review

Nintendo Labo lets children and parents turn cardboard into controllers and toys you control with your Switch. It’s not just a gimmick. In fact, it’s a little bit of magic.

‘A Way Out’ review

The cooperative story of ‘A Way Out’ sounds good on paper, but never becomes the emotional tale it hopes to be.

‘Sea of Thieves’ review

‘Sea of Thieves’ review

‘Sea of Thieves’ is a unique hybrid of pirate MMO and playful sandbox, and one of the most thoughtful visions of multiplayer we’ve ever seen.

‘MLB The Show 18’ Review

‘MLB The Show 18’ Review

MLB The Show 18 is still the best baseball game in town, even if this year’s installment removes one of the series’ best features.

‘Kirby Star Allies’ review

’Kirby Star Allies’ looks great and has interesting ideas, but the game never really become essential to the experience.

’Scribblenauts Showdown’ review

’Scribblenauts Showdown’ review

Scribblenauts Showdown features a more engaging board game format than Mario Party, but its sandbox mode might underwhelm serious fans.
Metal Gear Survive review

‘Metal Gear Survive’ review

‘Metal Gear Survive’ review

'Metal Gear Survive' tries to build on its beloved predecessor, but it's crammed full of confusing, tedious systems that detract from what might have been a fun idea.

‘Moss’ review

Polyarc Games’ Moss uses the PSVR’s capabilities in small, meaningful ways to deliver a resounding ad-venture.

Fe, the latest out of EA's “Originals” incubator program, paints colorful dreamscapes in which we love to get lost.

‘Civilization VI: Rise & Fall’ review

‘Civilization VI: Rise & Fall’ review

‘Rise & Fall,’ the first major expansion for ‘Civilization VI’ improves the game’s flow and fills out its systems, but does not produce any new drama.
