Rainbow Six: Siege review

Microtransaction Infraction You can buy garish weapon skins, XP boosts, and operators with either cash or in-game credits. As an example of value, a three-day XP boost costs 350 credits, and an operator costs 1000 credits (each time you unlock an operator the price of the next one increases), and ...

Xenoblade Chronicles X review

Get connected While Xenoblade is largely a single-player experience, there are a few hints of online connectivity that make it feel like you’re part of something bigger. At a certain part in the story, you’ll join a squad made up of 32 random strangers. These squads work together to tackle ...

Just Cause 3 review

The world’s a stage Medici is a beautiful, varied space, but feels strangely staged and sterile. The objects Rico must destroy have no in-game utility. Compare to Metal Gear Solid 5, where the decision to destroy a satellite dish has a pronounced, dramatic effect on the game’s systems. In Just ...

Pokemon Super Mystery Dungeon review

Gotta catch ’em all You really can catch ‘em all in Super Mystery Dungeon. That means every single Pokemon, ever (including every form of most multi-form Pokemon, like all 28 Unown symbols). If you’re looking to collect as many Pokemon as possible, check around town and at the tavern every ...

Star Wars Battlefront review

That’s entirely the point, though, because this is more a Star Wars simulator than a traditional first-person shooter. You’re here to immerse yourself in the universe you love, to be a part of it, to experience it with your friends, not to be cannon fodder for xxBiffLord69xx who can headshot ...

Rise of the Tomb Raider review

What else is there? There are side modes, but no multiplayer. Expeditions lets you replay levels with perks and challenges (like a bonus for not getting hit, or all the enemies are on fire), which you unlock via packs of random cards, and there are online leaderboards to chase. However, ...

Yo-kai Watch review

Picky eaters As many yo-kai as there are hiding in Springdale, there are perhaps even more tasty treats that you have to sort through on your adventures. While food always helps boost your yo-kai team’s health or special-move energy, giving food to an enemy yo-kai can make them like you ...

Fallout 4 review +

I had a few issues along the way – a couple of freezes and straight up blue screen crashes, a restart after a mission critical NPC froze, and a bizarre bug where activating VATS kept teleporting me around. But considering I’ve hammered the game in 10 hour chunks some days ...
