8.5 / 10.0 - NHL 20
Sep 13, 2019

NHL 20 is a decided improvement over NHL 18 and a step up from NHL 19, though you’d also be forgiven if you skipped out for a year.

9 / 10.0 - Gears 5

Gears 5 has some great innovations, held back behind the same ol'.

7.5 / 10.0 - Catherine: Full Body
Aug 31, 2019

Like inclusion of Rin, Catherine itself is a tricky one; you’ll love it and hate it almost in the same thought. That’s not necessarily a terrible thing though — it’s an extremely unique experience that you owe it to yourself to at least try if you haven’t already. That said, consider that you can get the initial experience on a multitude of platforms for a fraction of the price.

6.5 / 10.0 - MXGP 19
Aug 30, 2019

It’s hard to settle upon an audience for MXGP 2019, especially on Xbox One — MXGP3 will work just fine for casual players, and those looking for a hardcore experience are better serviced with MXGP Pro instead.

10 / 10.0 - Control
Aug 26, 2019

Control shows not only Remedy’s growth as a studio, but studio head Sam Lake’s as a writer, building and greatly expanding upon concepts started in Alan Wake and flirted with in Quantum Break.

At the end of the day, Wolfenstein Youngblood is largely forgettable.

[Review in progress] I’ve only scratched the surface of Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order. One thing’s for sure already: I hope I’m not running down a single corridor for the entire duration of the game.

7.5 / 10.0 - Sea of Solitude
Jul 5, 2019

Despite this, Sea of Solitude is as unique as it is charming, and certainly a title to check out if you’re looking for a break from looter shooters and multiplayer.

9.5 / 10.0 - Super Mario Maker 2
Jun 26, 2019

If you’ve played Super Mario Maker, you already know this Switch sequel is a must-buy. If you’re a Switch owner, Super Mario Maker 2 needs to be part of your collection. Easy as that.

7.5 / 10.0 - The Sinking City
Jun 26, 2019

The Sinking City is a mixed bag; a riveting mystery that’s far less linear than anything Frogwares has ever done. It’s very rough around the edges however, likely to cause as much frustration as it does enjoyment.

Despite missing the mark on a difficulty that feels consistently challenging yet fun at the same time, Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled is an utter delight.

6 / 10.0 - Layers of Fear 2
May 27, 2019

While Layers of Fear was a jaunt into the unknown, Layers of Fear 2 has a strong sense of déjà vu that you carry with you from beginning to end; you’ve the feeling you’ve seen this before, and likely, more expertly done. Despite that misstep, it remains a must-play for horror fans who’re looking for a polished, atmospheric little fright.

8 / 10.0 - Observation
May 22, 2019

Despite those occasionals falter — and a somewhat polarising, disappointing ending — I was desperate to complete Observation to get to the bottom of its mystery.

8 / 10.0 - Darkwood
May 18, 2019

Darkwood is a very unique experience that relies on darkness and silence frequently, causing your own imagination to run wild and fill in the horrific gaps.

7.5 / 10.0 - Rage 2
May 14, 2019

Combat is by far the biggest selling point of Rage 2, and Avalanche Software should be proud of a title that continually draws comparisons the super-tight Doom reboot in my mind.

Despite dated mechanics, Sniper Elite V2 looks gorgeous – I preferred 60 frames per second over 4K resolution – and is a must for the collection of fans of the franchise.

9.5 / 10.0 - BoxBoy! + BoxGirl!
Apr 25, 2019

Despite the move to Switch, levels are still designed in a handheld console mentality, meaning you’ll be able to get through a level in a couple minutes flat; as such, BoxBoy remains perfectly suited for pick-up, put-down play.

6 / 10.0 - Days Gone
Apr 25, 2019

While patches may be able to salvage quite a few of its bugs, there are some questionable design decisions that certainly can’t be fixed as easily.

7 / 10.0 - Mortal Kombat 11
Apr 22, 2019

Mortal Kombat 11 is a great fighter tarnished by Warner Bros.’ willingness to test the limits of customer satisfaction using nickle-and-dime tactics. It’s truly an embarrassment for the franchise and one I hope is truly corrected soon.

This is an unofficial celebration of (nearly) 20 years of Phoenix Wright, and it’s a damn good one at that, even with its failings. You can hardly go wrong with the Granddaddy of the visual novel — a quirky, comical romp into the courtroom.
