    A slightly step back from the original

    South Park: The Fractured But Whole

    A slightly step back from the original

    The Fractured But Whole, as teased in the last game, is all about cashing in on the superhero craze. The premise is about the boys' two rival groups (Coon and Friends vs Freedom Pals) going after each other because they ... Read Full Review

    A step up in a way

    Assassin's Creed Chronicles: India

    A step up in a way

    First off, The gameplay is still very much the same. There are no new additions so you are gonna have no issues jumping from the first game to the second and not miss a beat. I like that because while the gameplay isn't ... Read Full Review

    Super Lucky's Tale: Gilly Island

    A cheap, fun addition to the game

    To be honest, I didn't even know that there was DLC until I came across it by accident and immediately downloaded it. For $5, I couldn't pass on it. Especially when I enjoyed the base game so much, It seemed like a win-w... Read Full Review

    State of Decay 2

    Better overall but still needs work

    The biggest compliment that I can give State of Decay 2 is that it literally is a better game than the original in every way possible. The quality of the graphics is a lot better. There's a bit more variety in the open w... Read Full Review

    Don't understand the high praise

    Vanquish

    Don't understand the high praise

    I think the most obvious thing to point out first is the very dated looking visuals. The game came in 2010 and it looked more like 2006. The quality of the visuals was nowhere near as good as they should have been and th... Read Full Review
