The Crew 2 feels like a do-over in the best possible way

Ubisoft is doing some genuinely cool, surprising things with The Crew 2. As someone who dug the heck out of the flawed but rewarding free-form original, I couldn't be more pleased. For instance: that world-bending Inception shit from the ci...

Far Cry 5's story will need to do the heavy lifting

"Have you played Far Cry before?" That was the first thing a Ubisoft rep asked me behind closed doors as I picked up a controller, selected a gun-fetching dog as my companion, and waited to load into Hope County, Montana. "Most of them," I ...

Dragon Ball FighterZ feels like playing the show

While I haven't played anything from Arc System Works since 2012's Persona 4 Arena and haven't watched a full episode of Dragon Ball Z since VHS was the go-to home video format, I was immediately jazzed for Dragon Ball FighterZ. Some of it ...

Dissidia Final Fantasy NT's 3-on-3 battles are a huge mess

As one of the more pressing titles I've been looking forward to playing ever since watching trailers for its arcade release, Dissidia Final Fantasy NT is a game I'm glad exists. Playing it, on the other hand, is a totally different story. E...

Mega Man Legacy Collection 2 has more man, less mega

Putting it simply, you know what you're getting with Mega Man Legacy Collection 2. Essentially sharing the same package as its predecessor, Collection 2 gathers Mega Man 7 through 10 in one place. Nevertheless, curiosity persisted...

Detroit: Become Human is as problematic as you want it to be

In the Detroit: Become Human hands-off theater demo we were shown at E3 2017, we got to see some of the iconography that will define the android/human conflict at the heart of the game's story. The androids' much-lauded digital graffit...

Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite has limited potential

After Marvel and Capcom had a rights fallout some time after the release of Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3, I had assumed we'd never get another entry to the series. I had resigned myself to that disappointment until Marvel vs. Capcom: Infini...

Hands-on with Metal Gear Survive was a bummer

Konami's attempt, in its post-Hideo Kojima future, to squeeze a little more blood out of everything the Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain team built is frustrating. It's not necessarily bad, but it does feel uncanny, just a little bit wr...

It's 2017 and Crackdown 3 is stuck in 2007

Crackdown 2 launched in the summer of 2010 and it was largely the same game that its predecessor was in 2007. The setting was the same, the gameplay was the same -- it mostly just added zombies in a weak attempt at variation. It rang h...

Ashen is one to watch if you're longing for more Souls

I can't say I'm fully on board with Ashen, a non-linear action-RPG about "forging relationships," after playing it this week at E3 and then seeing it, again, in an off-the-show-floor presentation with developer Aurora44. I need to...

Moss is the adventure game PlayStation VR needs

When Polyarc's Moss first debuted during Sony's E3 presser, I was taken aback by it. In-between flashy sports games and hyper aggressive shooters was this calm, collected, cute mouse making its way through the forest. Looking at Polyarc its...

Fire Emblem Warriors plays just how I hoped it would

I wanted to give you fine people a proper, fleshed-out preview of Fire Emblem Warriors, but I wanted to play Super Mario Odyssey even more, and Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle also tempted me with its XCOM-lite leanings. One hour with Ninten...

State of Decay 2 is the game I wanted the original to be

State of Decay was one of those games that quickly had me wishing for a sequel. Undead Labs was onto something with its base-building undead-survival title. The idea? Terrific. Roaming for food and ammo, picking up survivors, building out a...

Middle-earth: Shadow of War's open world is a bit middling

One of Monolith's greater ambitions with its Shadow of Mordor sequel is, well, adding more. Upon sitting down with the E3 demo, I was presented with a few options. Either I could try out the expanded Nemesis system we've already previewed b...

Star Wars Battlefront II asks for the benefit of the doubt

When I first saw The Force Awakens (a fine production that is better than Rogue One in every conceivable way), I left wanting to know more about the period between Return of the Jedi and the new film. And as a finger on the M...

Matterfall is like a bullet hell Mega Man

Housemarque (Super Stardust, Resogun) is continuing its trend of throwing as many colorful projectiles as possible at players with a new shooter, Matterfall. The 2D action platformer pits you as a Crysis-cosplayer in a futuristic robo-scif...

Uncharted: The Lost Legacy has to deliver with its story

I ended up really liking Uncharted 4: A Thief's End because of its story. The wild action setpieces were well paced and there were plenty of smaller, quieter moments that resonated. Everything felt in service to a story about people and the...

I saw the lineup for Best Handheld Game of 2017, and while I dont disagree with the nominations, I think it couldve also had Monster Hunter Stories and Blaster Master Both were great!
