Sea of Solitude is a gorgeous adventure that knows its way around mental illness, but doesn't make great use of the medium to tell its story.

Heavy Rain is poorly written and not as smart as it thinks it is, but has a genuine sense of choice and consequence.
Weighed down by a terrible campaign, this is still a superb multiplayer WW2 tactical RTS.
At its best when the screen is full of enemies, Amid Evil is a badass monster mash.
Bloodstained: ROTN faithfully recreates the metroidvania experience of the 2000s—a feast for fans of a very specific experience; a bit too old-fashioned for anyone else.
An occasionally entertaining detective game blighted by poor writing, rote combat, and a dreary open world.
Breezy fun that also rewards combo-chasing mastery. Barrel through the story once for a laugh, then replay the best levels until you are John Wick on a skateboard.
F1 2019 retains immaculate handling and visuals while adding cinematic spectacle and junior series racing.
Never quite the sum of its parts, Octopath Traveler is a game with brilliant moments rather than a brilliant game.
Mediocre and repetitive, there are far better options for action RPGs out there.
Beneath its charming and inventive worlds, Outer Wilds hides a cleverly unfolding mystery.
A slightly messy first-person shooter lifted by some excellent weapons and a gorgeous art style.
A gruelling mystery game that smothers its big ideas with dour survival mechanics.
Visually beautiful and emotionally affecting thanks to strong characters, A Plague Tale suffers from missing gameplay variety and tonal inconsistencies.
In expanding on its predecessor, Layers of Fear 2 sinks into a state of deep confusion.
A stylish, understated, and subtly chilling psychological thriller with a compelling mystery at its core.
High skill cap melee combat is equally rewarding and daunting, though the archery and support roles could use some work.
Not the best Total War game but not the worst by a long shot.
Some of the best first-person shooting on PC, but the rest of the game struggles to keep up with it.
Beautiful style, polished interactions, but ultimately it just runs out of things to do.
