There's fun to be had with Extinction, it's certainly not a terrible game. The combat and movement can lead to some enjoyable moments. But an unjustifiably high pricetag combined with some repetitive mechanics, frustrating lacks of polish, and an uninspiring narrative really damages the experience overall.

State of Decay 2 is a lot of fun. Co-op really helps the game's replayability and the number of systems at work lead to some fantastic unexpected moments. The game is still a little rough around the edges, both in terms of bugs and performance, but it's possible to overlook some of the niggles thanks to the overall enjoyable and addictive gameplay.

Conan Exiles is a fantastic survival game, arguably one of the genre's best. Right now the game suffers from some ropey console performance, server issues and a range of bugs. But despite these issues the game is a whole lot of fun, especially with friends. Don't sleep on Conan Exiles.

Priced at £19.99 for the Shadow Edition, the package offers great value. The Nightfall expansion adds an enjoyable extension of gameplay from the base game, and is a great addition when bundled. Purchased separately however the deal isn't quite as sweet. Fans of the genre will find a lot to like here, Aragami's gameplay is a lot of fun. There are a few issues here and there, but the replayability, fantastic online co-op and multiple different ways to approach the game, make it a worthwhile addition to your library.

Whilst each element isn't perfect, Vampyr manages to weave a brilliant dialogue system into a bleak yet atmospheric depiction of early 19th century London. The combat is serviceable, and the crafting system is basic. Yet the game is still a fantastic accomplishment - a refreshing reminder of just how important mid-tier titles can be.

Summerset offers a good sized chunk of content, at a relatively fair and attractive price point. It may not be as grand as some of its competitor's expansions, but it is still one of the most enjoyable regions in the game. At the low upgrade price it's hard to feel shortchanged here.

Jurassic World Evolution is a lot of fun. An incredibly polished park management sim, wrapped in a gorgeously nostalgic package. Frontier continue to showcase their talent for creating these kind of games, but unfortunately a lack of depth lets the game down.

A solid remaster which has evidently had plenty of work put into it. Red Faction Guerrilla still holds up today thanks to its fantastic destruction which remains relatively unrivalled. Whilst some areas of the game do show their age, this is still a great game being sold at a fair price point.

3.5 / 5.0 - Defiance 2050
Jul 29, 2018

Defiance 2050 offers great value for a free package. Whilst there were many serious lag and crash issues at launch, Trion have shown a commendable willingness to resolve these early on. Despite fun to be had the game isn't perfect, it shows its age in many areas and there's a lot of room for improvement, but 2050 provides a solid base for the team to build upon.

Titan Quest on the Switch is a solid port. The game looks good, runs smoothly in portable and docked modes (most of the time) and controls well. Other players have experienced some fairly serious bugs, but in my lengthy time with the game things have been largely smooth sailing. Whilst the port is a little unambitious in scope and shows its age in spots, over a decade later Titan Quest remains a blast to play and is just as addictive as ever.
