9 / 10.0 - F1 2019
Jun 24, 2019

F1 2019 brought enough upgrades to make this sufficient enough for the annual update. Leagues, the F2 series, the ability to finally save replay highlights and tweaking the racing to perfection makes this another must-own for fans.

6.5 / 10.0 - Team Sonic Racing
May 29, 2019

Those expecting a deep single-player experience to match previous Sonic racers won't get much to enjoy unless you have friends or family to join you in on the fun. Get a group of players to join you offline or online and you'll have a blast. It's made for a group of players, not for those who don't like sharing.

3.5 / 10.0 - Left Alive
Mar 17, 2019

It's a stealth or action game and is rubbish at both. The AI will drive you up the wall and the three protagonists are forgettable. There is absolutely nothing, other than some beautiful artwork and a decent soundtrack, that leaves any hope alive of it being any good.

Monster Energy Supercross - The Official Video Game 2 conforms to the general annual update mandate. There is a new roster, some tracks, a few graphical tweaks and a whole lot of the same returning content. Unless this is your first outing, best wait for next year to see something more substantial.

8 / 10.0 - Trials Rising
Feb 24, 2019

Trials Rising is a return to form for this classic physics-based bike game. Tandem brings a whole new element to multiplayer fun and contracts extends the challenges in the campaign to make this one game fans should not miss out on.

7 / 10.0 - ChromaGun VR
Feb 19, 2019

Fans of the puzzle genre will find much to love in ChromaGun VR. Using droids to do your nasty work has never been as colourful. If you love a game that challenges your brain muscles then you're about to get one hell of a mental workout.

9 / 10.0 - Resident Evil 2
Jan 27, 2019

This remake will speak to both newcomers and veterans alike. It's an old school formula that's been spiced up for a modern generation and it works. It'll keep you on the edge of your seat and have your heart skipping a beat, but, most of all, it'll remind you just why it has such a legendary status. It's simply one of the best Resident Evil stories ever told and this remake honours that.

There are so many modes, fighters, stages, a soundtrack to die for and, finally, an adventure mode that'll last you longer than most single-player games. It's not just the ultimate Super Smash Bros. game - it's the ultimate crossover fighter.

8 / 10.0 - Mega Man 11
Nov 19, 2018

Capcom kept to the traditional strengths of the series and with that you're left with a highly addictive action-platformer that is perfect for both newcomers and veterans alike.

7 / 10.0 - Tetris Effect
Nov 8, 2018

It's not easy to improve a game that's just about perfect and Tetris Effect is proof that the formula doesn't need much tweaking. It looks and sounds incredible, but don't expect this euphoria to last you a long time. Unless you love playing for a high score via leaderboards, the effect will wear off before you know it.

5 / 10.0 - Dakar 18
Oct 8, 2018

Dakar 18 comes with all the official licenses, great track layouts and everything that you would align with the event, it's just let down by really poor vehicle handling.

Platformers have found a home on PSVR and Astro Bot Rescue Mission is going to drive that point home. Players who are after a traditional 3D platformer that is filled with secrets and impressive worlds to discover, should take the plunge and help this little Astro Bot that could.

9.5 / 10.0 - Forza Horizon 4
Sep 24, 2018

Forza Horizon 4 takes what its predecessor did and somehow improves on it. If you're after a simulation you've come to the wrong place. All you'll find here is an endless supply of arcade racing entertainment.

8.5 / 10.0 - Firewall: Zero Hour
Sep 20, 2018

Firewall: Zero Hour is the FPS game PSVR players have been waiting for. The only downside is that there is absolutely no campaign to enjoy - it's a multiplayer experience, exclusively. Play it with the aim controller and you'll find little else as entertaining in the PSVR shooter library.

5.5 / 10.0 - V-Rally 4
Sep 12, 2018

Rally games have come a long way, but it seems V-Rally is still stuck in an era where most of their audience wasn't even born yet. The level design is something to behold, pity that it bites the dust when it comes to car handling.

8.5 / 10.0 - Planet Alpha
Sep 9, 2018

Planet Alpha takes you on a trip to an alien world that oozes with atmosphere and scale. The platforming and puzzles will keep you on your toes from beginning to end in an indie game that is as beautiful as most AAA titles.

7.5 / 10.0 - WarioWare Gold
Aug 13, 2018

WarioWare Gold takes the best games since launching on the GBA and brings it to the 3DS with over 300 playable microgames. It's fun, wacky and will keep your attention throughout story mode. It's unfortunately very short and comes with a multiplayer mode that requires your friend to own the game as well. Perfect for newcomers, but veterans might want to give it a skip.

6.5 / 10.0 - MotoGP 18
Jul 5, 2018

Bike games always seem to get the short end of the stick and MotoGP 18 isn't going to help that cause. It might be a build up towards a better tomorrow, but for now you'll have to deal with a finish out of the points.
