Overcooked 2 dials in the incredibly addictive formula from the first game with a host of clever new mechanics, modes and small fixes that make the chaotic cooking challenges more engrossing to engage with.
A chimera of genres, Dead Cells succeeds in forging its own path with incredibly polished combat, retrotastic art design and drawing the right amount of influence from the past.
The Pro G Headset is well-made, quality headset that’s a little too singularly focused. While competitive gamers may appreciate its punchy bass and crisp highs, the mid-range performance is just adequate. Of course, preference for that sort of tuning is entirely subjective. For multiplayer gaming, it’s definitely a good set, but comes up against strong competition in sets like the SteelSeries Arctis 3 and its better microphone, and the better all-rounder in the Kingston HyperX Cloud II or Cloud Alphas.
Sonic Mania is a celebration of everything that made Sonic the Hedgehog such an enduring, beloved character. Plus adds to that, making one of the best Sonic games in decades even better.
It may be almost a decade old, but Red Faction Guerrilla’s bland sandbox and story is still easily overlooked in favour of its gold standard of open-world demolition that now benefits from a substantial bump in visual quality.
Semblance is a frequently delightful, innovative platformer that's all about breaking the rules. When it’s at its best, it’s devilishly clever, but it has a curiously stilted pacing and flow. Its subversive take on mouldable platforming is fun to play, but ultimately its underutilised core concepts will leave you wanting more.
Captain Toad Treasure Tracker finds new life on the Nintendo Switch, proving that hardware is sometimes just as important as software with a more suitable platform to support its rapid-fire puzzles adventures.
Usually, if somebody asks me for a headset recommendation that’ll be used for both gaming and music, I’d point them in Sennheiser’s direction. The Arctis Pro changes that. If you’re looking for a headset that’s purely for gaming, then many of this headset’s best features will be completely lost on you. If you game, but also take your music listening seriously and don’t want a stack of headsets for specific purposes lying around, this is the one to get.
What you see is what you get with Far Cry 5: Lost on Mars: Plenty of Hurk, a ton of bugs to kill and a straightforward romp on the red planet.
Octopath Traveler is a beautiful and modern JRPG that stays true to its roots. It can feel repetitive at times, but the amazing combat, heartfelt stories and extraordinary soundtrack counteracts its structural issues in almost every way. This is a definite must-play for Switch owners.
