Another expansion for Paradox’ city builder and once again it delivered with new features which added a snowy and cold flavour to the game.

Dark Souls 3

With Souls titles now a pseudo-genre of their own, there’s an inevitable familiarity to the rewarding challenges, deft storytelling, and intricate, shortcut-laden level design of Dark Souls 3. But familiarity alone should not detract from this third title’s fine implementation of ideas and mechanics. The enigma may be waning, but there’s still nothing quite like a Souls game.

Dirt Rally Maxed

A fantastic new addition to the Dirt franchise. Less approachable for new players but clearly the best outing from Codemasters in years.

Doom - 9

Bethesda and id bring back the classic and they have done a fantastic job. It’s a Asolid, speedy, brutal, and surprisingly lengthy campaign combine with an intriguing map-making facility to make Doom a pretty easy recommendation. The multiplayer may not grab you, but there’s plenty of content here without it.

Enter the Gungeon - 9

Read the review Buy it now

Quirky, funny, demanding, and requiring an awful lot of skill: Enter the Gungeon is one of the best action-roguelites in years.


Nobody was sure how Hitman’s episodic releases would work out but they have proved a hit so far.

Developed by Clifftop games, Kathy Rain i set in the 90’s and tells the story of a strong-willed journalism major who has to come to terms with her own troubled past as she investigates the mysterious death of her recently deceased grandfather.

Rise of the Tomb Raider

A solid, lengthy, entertaining romp across both tombs and not-tombs, with a quality PC port. If you want more Tomb Raider 2013, this offers improvements on most of that game’s mechanics and is unlikely to disappoint.

The masters of grand strategy take to the stars in Stellaris. All the galactic flavour and themes of a 4X space title, married to the mechanics of Paradox’s recent grand strategy offerings. Stellaris has a space opera tale of gene manipulation, Federation politics, or colonial slavery for everyone.

This time-stopping action title caused a stir this year when it was finally released. SUPERHOT is a concise central mechanic, framed by a clever, form-twisting premise and outstanding design in art and sound. Other games wish they could be this cool.

XCOM 2 successfully straddles the line between being familiar and being new. A few design choices will divide people, and there are bugs and issues that will need patching or modding, but for the most part it’s a sterling return to the gruelling decision-making of its predecessor.
