Forager

Forager review: Mindlessly mining the minutes away

There's not much substance in Forager, but sometimes you just want to mindlessly snack on tasty junk food—even if you feel slightly unfulfilled afterward.

Yakuza Kiwami 2

Yakuza Kiwami 2 review: The continuing story of Kazuma Kiryu in Kamurocho

An engine upgrade helps offset some of Yakuza Kiwami 2's weaker aspects, making this another entertaining entry in the series, and another excellent PC port.

Imperator: Rome

Imperator: Rome review: I conquered, I conquered, I conquered

Paradox's take on Roman history has potential, but its most interesting systems are painfully bare-bones at initial release, begging to be expanded on in future expansions.

Mortal Kombat 11

Mortal Kombat 11 review: Great fighting, bad port, ugly monetization

Mortal Kombat 11 is an excellent end to this story arc and a smart fighting game, marred by performance issues and a never-ending grind for unlocks.

Heaven's Vault

Heaven's Vault review: In search of lost time

Inkle's archaeological adventure is rough around the edges, but Heaven's Vault's unique language translation mechanic and its effect on player choice more than make up for it.

Anno 1800

Anno 1800 review: An Industrial Revolution but not a design revolution

Anno 1800 bolsters the hybrid city-builder-slash-strategy series with some quality-of-life improvements and truly impressive technical feats, but old interface issues continue to hold it back.

Rotor Riot Game Controller for iOS review: The herald of a new age of iOS gaming

No other MFi controller currently lets you use the thumbstick buttons, which puts the Rotor Riot in a class all by itself

EVGA GeForce GTX 1660 XC Ultra review: The new 'sweet spot' champion

Nvidia's GeForce GTX 1660 and EVGA's superb XC Ultra custom design combine to (finally!) jettison AMD's Radeon RX 580 from its spot as the mainstream gaming champion.

Yakuza 0

I’m ashamed it took me so long to try the Yakuza series

If you care about storytelling and world-building in video games, you owe it to yourself to give the Yakuza series a shot—especially now that they've started arriving on PC.

EVGA GeForce GTX 1660 Ti XC Ultra review: Laser-focused on all-around great performance

The EVGA GeForce GTX 1660 Ti XC Ultra strips out fancy extras to focus purely on great performance in all functional areas.

Devil May Cry 5

Devil May Cry 5 review: Satisfying, slick, and stylish

Devil May Cry 5 is a game that delights in setting the bar high up front and then continually one-upping itself with ever-more-ludicrous cutscenes and some of the most stylish combat in the business.

globesweeper 8

Globesweeper review: February's most addictive game is a modernized take on Minesweeper

There's so much work to be done but I just can't stop playing Globesweeper, a spherical take on Minesweeper.

gamevice hero

Gamevice review: A good iPhone game controller, but not for Fortnite

You need to press hard to use the Gamevice's trigger buttons, and that's of little use in frantic gaming battles.

Anthem

Anthem review: A great first impression and not much else

Anthem's first few hours are enticing, but it's not long before you realize BioWare's run out of cool toys to show off.

Asus ROG Strix GeForce GTX 1660 Ti review: GTX is back with a vengeance

Nvidia's GeForce GTX 1660 Ti is the best 1080p GPU you can buy, and Asus's versatile ROG Strix design makes it even better.

Crackdown 3

Crackdown 3 review: Why?

Crackdown 3 feels like a game unstuck from time, a piece of 2007-era design that sneaked through into 2019, with middling results.
