Ni No Kuni 2 manages to showcase that even without Studio Ghibli, Level-5 can still create a truly wondrous and magical JRPG. Even though a lot of the new features and strategic elements feel undercut by it’s easy difficulty, this is still a fine example of what the genre has to offer.
God of War is a masterclass in both narrative and game design, reinventing the series with a cast of well written and acted characters that pairs well with more complex and rewarding combat and exploration. A PS4 exclusive that is simply a must-have title.
It's Job Simulator with a coat of nihilistic, irreverent paint. It's fun, funny and indulgently self-aware. It's undoubtedly a must-have for fans, but like the character you play as, it's a disposable clone.
It’s beautiful, it’s fun to play and it’s accompanied by some wonderful music, but it’s the way that the narrative of loss and failure, of hope and redemption is inextricably woven into the game that makes it special.
The new God of War has been five years in the making. It’s a big change for Kratos; not only has he switched over to a new Pantheon of gods to kill, but he’s also got a son in tow. In a world with new gods and monsters, Kratos must teach his son Atreus not only to survive, but also prevent him from making the same mistakes. It’s got everything you’d expect from God of War and more – with a strong narrative, a dark world and unflinching, brutal combat. It’s out on April 20, but reviews hit today. Here’s what critics think of the game!
God of War gets off to an incredibly strong start with a compassion filled opening that pivots hard to bone crunchng comabt and clever environmental puzzles.
Extinction is a fantastic idea buried in mediocrity. It’s one trick is stunning for a short while, but quickly runs out of steam as repetition, flimsy combat and a glib story cuts it down to size.
If you were ever hesitant about jumping into Injustice 2 due to the fragmented nature of fighting games in the new age of content delivery, then rest assured: Injustice 2 is 2017’s best fighting game made even better in 2018.
Detective Pikachu, as a character, is really quite special - but the game itself is unfortunately just not very much fun to play.
The quality of life additions like the USB pass-through, the volume roller and the included wrist pad are just gravy on what is one of the very best keyboards I’ve used. In fact, I have very little bad to say about it at all - other than its price, that is.
