Warriors Orochi 4 review – The Tenth Half-Decent ‘Warriors’ Game. Yay.

A thoroughly decent stab at a sub-genre that has been bled dry. Newcomers will enjoy the magic/combo system for a while before the boredom hits and interest in the story mightn't be enough to pull a player through. The lacklustre environments and copypasta hordes of Putties add to the slog. Long-time fans will find the Magic system enlightening but the heavy recycling of assets will be noted.

Sony Xperia XZ3 review – Display of Intent

Sony's first OLED is a thing of beauty, even with the fairly pointless curvature. New addition 'Side-sense' echoes HTC U11's ancillary input but it's a more comprehensive use of the method. Refinements to Sony's Xperia launcher have slowly brought to a fantastic Android skin. The best Xperia flagship to date - even without a 3.5mm jack.

DAKAR 18 review – Not for Everyone but Impressive

About as accessible as the environments of the game itself, DAKAR 18 does not attempt to meet non-fans halfway. This makes for a surprisingly good adventure-driving game for those who want a genuine test of their skill, stamina and spatial awareness.

FIFA 19 In-Depth review – Tactically Outfoxed but Improving

The new Kick-Off mode, FUT rivals and three-strand Journey are inviting ways to package FIFA's arcade brand of soccer. However, the engine itself is becoming a little long in the tooth - even with a looser brand of football and a useful tactical upgrade.

Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey review: Ubi Hits a Homer

Assassins' Creed: Odyssey tells an epic, winding tale befitting the lesser bards of the classical era - no mean feat for a video game. That it's based in one of the most beautiful maps ever made is also nice, obviously.

Forza Horizon 4 review – To Horizons Old and New

Forza Horizon 4 lacks direction and structure as the game wears on. With nothing standing out as special, players are mostly invited to make their own fun rather than the curated journey that Forza Horizon has traditionally offered in between 6km powerslides. A pretty map with plenty to see can only keep a player for so long before they will be wondering 'what's next?'.
