62 / 100 - WRC 8
Nov 28, 2019

While packed with content, WRC 8 is a rally sim that struggles on the Switch due to poor presentation and the console's inherently unresponsive controls.

65 / 100 - Death Stranding
Nov 17, 2019

Death Stranding is less like a masterwork from a newly liberated veteran, and feels more like a debut effort of an imaginative and yet still unrefined game creator. Its convoluted story is propped up by a solid cast, and the very dull gameplay is just helped along by the well implemented multiplayer. It will only really appeal to fans of a very specific game subgenre, or those who enjoy unbridled narratives.

Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 does little to make you excited for the real event next year. Its collection of sports minigames varies in quality, the story is dull, and with a surprising lack of structured party play, there's not a lot of value here for the full asking price.

82 / 100 - FIFA 20
Oct 6, 2019

FIFA 20 brings the franchise back to great form after last year's minor deviation. It plays a solid game of virtual football, and if you're mostly focused on online modes, there's plenty to do. Volta makes for a great addition, and offsets the lack of progress in Career mode.

If you're in the mood for a quirky puzzle game where you're responsible for creating the funny moments, Untitled Goose Game fits the bill. Before it steals and drags it into the lake.

78 / 100 - NHL 20
Sep 23, 2019

NHL 20 finally offers some forward momentum for this sports franchise, and though it's not all smooth as ice, at least fans have a variety of good reasons to lace up the skates again this year.

55 / 100 - Daemon X Machina
Sep 22, 2019

Daemon X Machina is an underwhelming mech game that offers too few enjoyable qualities to recommend, even for the fans of the genre. Fleeting fun from the action is buried beneath a poorly told story, lackluster presentation, and barebones mechanics.

70 / 100 - eFootball PES 2020
Sep 15, 2019

What's in a name? For eFootball PES 2020, it's just words. Even with the new moniker, this year's footballing title offers more of the same - mostly solid gameplay, but lacking any sort of forward momentum in all other areas.
