Anthem Hands-on Preview

Anthem review

Anthem is an online shooter from BioWare that’s been compared to games such as Warframe, Destiny, and even Borderlands 2. It’s already proven to have a stunning open-world with action-packed combat that distinguishes itself with its story, characters, and lore. But will it continue to invest in those things as we get closer to the end game?
Far Cry New Dawn review

Far Cry New Dawn review

Far Cry New Dawn is essentially an extension of Far Cry 5 than a full blown sequel. It outshines its predecessor, though, in many ways. It makes better use of the open world by focusing on scavenging and crafting, and this makes the post-apocalyptic Hope County far more rewarding. It could use a better story though.
Metro Exodus gameplay.

Metro Exodus review

Metro Exodus moves the action out of the Moscow subway system and across a devastated Russia, but 4A Games’ latest shooter didn’t forget what made the series so beloved in the first place. Only occasional technical and structural issues hamper what is the best Metro game to date.
Kingdom Hearts III review

‘Kingdom Hearts III’ review

Kingdom Hearts 3 features seven dazzling Disney and Pixar worlds to explore. This time around, the wondrous combat matches the magic of the scenery and characters. The overall plot is predictably convoluted, but hanging out with Sora, Donald, and Goofy once again is a near constant joy.
Dead Cells review

‘Dead Cells’ Review

Dead Cells is an indie game that blends elements from roguelite and Metroidvania genres to bring fast-paced combat pace, a complex progression system, and gameplay with plenty of secrets to uncover. Prepare to test your patience and your skill with this chaotic indie from Motion Twin.
Resident Evil 2 review featured image

‘Resident Evil 2’ review

2019’s Resident Evil 2 remake brings the legendary Raccoon City incident to a new generation of players, acting both as a nostalgic throwback and a thoroughly modern horror game with some of the best visuals of the generation and best-in-class sound and environmental design.
new super mario bros u deluxe review bario feat

New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe review

New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe bundles two distinct Mario Wii U experiences into one package. New Super Mario Bros. U has some of the series’ best designed levels, and New Super Luigi U packs the toughest test the franchise has seen in decades. Both are brilliant, inventive, and endlessly charming.
Gear Club Unlimited 2 review

Gear Club Unlimited 2 review

Gear Club Unlimited 2 arrived exclusively on the Nintendo Switch with it comes over 50 licensed cars, customizable driving mechanics, online and local multiplayer, and the chance to fulfill your dream of becoming a professional race car driver.
Super Smash Bros Ultimate

‘Super Smash Bros. Ultimate’ review

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is a loving tribute to Nintendo and gaming history. A terrific multiplayer fighter in its own right, even single-player fans have plenty to love this time. Extra DLC characters will flesh out the already enormous roster of famous fighters and will keep Switch owners occupied for a long time.
Just Cause 4 review

‘Just Cause 4’ review

Just Cause 4 is filled with high-octane explosions and ridiculous stunts. While the spectacle of it all is a literal blast, the world is shallow and feels like a retread of Just Cause 3, a game that launched three years ago.
Spider-man Hands-on

‘Marvel’s Spider-Man’ review

‘Marvel's Spider-Man’ manages to live up to its beloved predecessors and stand aside giants like the Batman ‘Arkham’ games, reveling in letting players do everything a spider can -- while also telling a compelling story, and providing a sandbox that's a blast to play in.
darksiders 3 review iii press feat

‘Darksiders III’ review

Darksiders III brings Souls-like combat without sacrificing what made the other games so good. New protagonist Fury is a joy to play and while gameplay can be buggy, Darksiders III still manages to combine different influences into an engaging and action-packed adventure filled with creative enemies and clever puzzles.
Fallout 76 Hands-on

‘Fallout 76’ review

Fallout 76 brings the nuclear wasteland online and invites you to hop in with your friends. Tweaks to old systems accentuate its cooperative play but not without some clumsiness. Are the survivors of Vault 76 stepping into a world filled with potential, or are they doomed to waste away in their new home? We find out.
let's go pikachu mew battle

Pokémon: Let’s Go review

Pokémon Let’s Go takes players back to Kanto for a jubilant journey through Pokémon history. Though battling with wild Pokémon has been removed, Let’s Go’s lack of random battles feels like an overall improvement. Kanto is more charming than you even remembered, making Let’s Go a relaxing and inviting entry in the series.
Hitman 2 Hands-on

‘Hitman 2’ review

IO Interactive and Warner Bros introduce us to ‘Hitman 2’, a sequel that embraces what made the series so unique and takes it to another level.
battlefield v review feat

Battlefield V review

Battlefield V’s War Stories give us a new perspective on World War II, but the game’s lack of polish across both its campaign and multiplayer modes are almost impossible to ignore. For fans of DICE’s large-scale, destruction-filled combat, however, there is still plenty to love here.
Diablo Immortal Hands-on Review

‘Diablo Immortal’ hands-on review

Diablo Immortal is a mobile game and while that spells microtransactions and watered-down gameplay for some, our hands on with the game suggests otherwise. Diablo’s upcoming prequel is fun, not just because of its grab and go capabilities, but because it’s a true Diablo experience.
Destiny 2 Review

‘Destiny 2’ review

Destiny 2 benefits from the years Bungie spent refining Destiny, making for a deep and varied shooter experience that’s the best place to enter its worlds.
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 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.
Forza Horizon 4 Hands-On Classic British

‘Forza Horizon 4’ review

Forza Horizon 4 adds a new twist to the popular franchise – seasons. These change the huge map, demanding new ways to approach the same old challenges. This promises almost endless racing, but will you want to keep playing? Our Forza Horizon 4 review reaches a definitive verdict.
destiny 2 forsaken review in progress feat

‘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

‘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 Hands-on

‘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’ 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

‘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’ 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.
A warrior stands in front of a waterfall in Battle for Azeroth.

‘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 f118 screenshot 001

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 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

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, 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

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’ 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.
