Blasphemous is a twisted take on religion and Metroidvanias, providing great combat, fantastic visuals and a world that's soaked in both blood and well-written lore

Episode 4 has some truly engaging moments, but the issues that have plagued earlier episodes persist. By now, it's likely that only the diehards – those who forked out for a season pass – will see this through to the end.

The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening is a loving remake of a decades-old game remake with just enough modern touches to make it worth playing again. Graphical overhaul aside, it's perhaps a little too faithful to the original, while additions like the dungeon-builder are a bust. Newcomers get to experience one of the quirkiest games in the series, but for those who've played through it multiple times, there's little reason to play other than nostalgia or adoration - both of which are perfectly good excuses to return to Koholint.

8 / 10.0 - Borderlands 3
Sep 19, 2019

Borderlands 3 may be a braindead story of already dead on arrival memes and a cast that is largely forgettable (Save for Tannis, I still love you for being my socially inept spirit animal), but it's easily the most satisfying power fantasy of the year thanks to its amazingly tuned gunplay and a sophisticated flow of action that picks up the juvenile slack.

5 / 10.0 - Daymare: 1998
Sep 17, 2019

Daymare 1998 is a competent survival horror game that borrows too heavily from its influences to do anything interesting or unique and thus suffers from poor writing and uninspired gameplay

6.5 / 10.0 - GreedFall
Sep 16, 2019

Greedfall is an ambitious RPG with several unique mechanical hooks, character builds and combat encounters that unfortunately buckles under the weight of a bloated and tedious narrative that often turns everything into a repetitive chore

6 / 10.0 - The Sinking City
Sep 13, 2019

The Sinking City both sinks and swims. Delivering a good mystery within a picturesque yet grotesque hellscape, while also held back by visual ramifications and tricky combat engagements.

The gameplay is undoubtedly the best in any football game to-date, but in a world where gamers crave fresh content, it’s sadly lagging the competition.

With more instalments to come in the Dark Pictures universe, there’s definitely space for improvement. And if the entire package is aiming to build on the surprising success of Until Dawn, it needs to make some adjustments.

7.5 / 10.0 - Daemon X Machina
Sep 11, 2019

There may be some rough edges, but for anyone looking for some fast-paced mobile suit action and who don't mind a repetitive grind, Daemon X Machina is a big mech with cheese that's worth sinking your teeth into.

An incredible port of an incredible game, Divinity: Original Sin 2 is just as ground-breaking and clever as it was on PC while running impressively well on the Switch’s lower-end spec.

8.5 / 10.0 - NBA 2K20
Sep 10, 2019

NBA2K20 is an incredible addition to the series. The depth and attention to detail make it a masterclass in replicating the beauty of the game. MyCAREER particularly stands out with 2K being serious with the star cast of Idris Elba and LeBron James, with the latter also being the executive producer. This is a game that does so much right, you're quick to forget the incessant brand plugging and intimidating grind.

Despite an upgrade and loot system that's fairly uninspired and slow, Remnant: From the Ashes manages to make a name for itself with some engaging combat, beautiful environmental design and exceptional boss fights

A great port of a fantastic game, Torchlight 2 still holds up as a great example of an ARPG dungeon-crawler that is unfortunately plagued by some annoying bugs and control scheme limitations

7 / 10.0 - WRC 8
Sep 9, 2019

WRC 8 presents a complete rallying experience with its team management and career components. But while the driving does deliver a fun time, it's frustrating on a technical level and there are the visuals won't distract you from that fact.

7.5 / 10.0 - Telling Lies
Sep 9, 2019

Whether you call it an interactive movie game or desktop thriller, Telling Lies is a gratifying and authentic-feeling fly-on-the-wall experience. For the most part. Exceptional performances and an intriguing, topical story are undercut by a jarring gameplay choice that forces you out of the game when you least want it.

9 / 10.0 - Gears 5
Sep 4, 2019

There are missteps, especially with the open worlds feeling lifeless, but Gears 5 is a more confident turn from a developer that no longer has to prove it's capable of making a faithful Gears of War sequel. Bigger, better and more beautiful – and a bold step in the right direction for the series. The action is superlative, the writing hits humorous and emotional notes, and the number of multiplayer modes is extensive. If ever there was a reason to subscribe to Xbox's Game Pass service, this is it.

The Reignited Trilogy feels well at home on the Nintendo Switch. Spyro is still fun to play in a world that looks great. Incremental improvements on all fronts, gameplay and otherwise, keeps the adventure throughout engaging, if a little cumbersome at times.

7.5 / 10.0 - Blair Witch
Sep 3, 2019

Blair Witch is a creepy, tense expansion on the mythos established by the films and while it does capture the general aesthetic of the movie does stumble in trying to replicate that which made the franchise so well-regarded to this day
