The charming mix of Minecraft and Dragon Quest works even better the second time round, with a smart sequel that address the flaws of the original while adding plenty of new features of its own.

A painfully ineffectual attempt to revive the memory of ActRaiser, that somehow manages to feel more outdated and simplistic than the original SNES game.
A thoughtful exploration of the monsters people can unwittingly become, although it often struggles to offer a compelling gameplay experience.
Why a show set in the 80s has a video game tie-in that recalls the worst of 90s licensed games is a mystery, but this has absolutely none of the charm, wit, or excitement of the TV show.
A slick sequel with promising, if shallow, career mode improvements. But it’s moving in the right direction and not far off achieving elite status.
More than just a successful reboot of a forgotten franchise, this is one of the most unique and entertaining new fighting games of recent years.
Not just one of the most versatile 2D game creation tools on consoles but the best collection of new Super Mario courses since the 90s.
The best Mario Kart clone of the nineties is also the best Mario Kart clone of the 21st century, with a stunning remake that offers welcome refinement and improvement.
The best Castlevania game never made and while it adds relatively little to the formula it is the best example of its use in many years.
A fun spin-off that takes some of the best parts of Yakuza and weaves a story that's at least as compelling – even if a lot of gameplay elements are becoming overfamiliar at this point.
A clever mash-up of two very different games that perfectly evokes the best of 2D Zelda while integrating the surprisingly tactical rhythm action combat of Crypt Of The NecroDancer.
A slight downgrade on the original but still a fun crossover that works as a crash course in the joys of both Persona and Etrian Odyssey.
Not your typical real-time strategy game, but despite a few interesting ideas this shallow husk of a game feels almost barbarically simple.
A rare, honest-to-goodness video game comedy that will delight Rick and Morty fans but also features some imaginative use of VR.
A very compelling mix of roguelike and first person shooter, with highly distinctive visuals and pleasingly difficult tactical choices.
A blockbuster action movie in VR form that shows the abilities of PlayStation VR and Sony's studios better than ever before, even if the experience is ultimately rather shallow.
An excellent mix of turn-based dungeon crawler, roguelike, and card game whose perfectly balanced combat will have you constantly coming back for more.
An impressively unique stealth adventure which mixes a gothic horror atmosphere with a touching tale of two siblings surviving against the odds.
2001 is hardly the most obvious movie to use as inspiration for a video game and perhaps predictably the end result suffers from slow-pacing and a lack of meaningful interaction.
A likeable, car chase-riddled sandbox crime spree that updates the original pre-3D Grand Theft Auto games into a more modern play experience.
