The Best Games of 2018

MOTHERGUNSHIP Review

MOTHERGUNSHIP Review

MOTHERGUNSHIP gives you everything you expect from a FPS Bullet hell. Which is to say that there are a lot of bullets, both to dodge and to fire. It is a frenetic and chaotic shooter with a great crafting system that makes the whole thing feel like LEGO had an angry baby with Doom.

Our Rating: 9/10

An enjoyable journey into better, more dinosaur filled times, that will keep you entertained throughout. The careful balancing acts that are required are demanding without being overwhelming and the dinosaurs look great.

Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection Review

Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection Review

An immense collection of classic fighting games that shows off just how good the Street Fighter series is. The games themselves are one thing, but the inclusion of the Museum mode allows you to learn so much about the series. Games are often said to be love letters, this is a love encyclopedia and is essential for fans of the series.

Our Rating: 9/10

Wizard Of Legend Review

Wizard Of Legend Review

Wizard of Legend is a sharp, satisfying and challenging action roguelike title with more than enough variety, difficulty and excellent execution to justify a purchase.

Our Rating: 8/10

Dark Souls Remastered Review

Dark Souls Remastered Review

Dark Souls Remastered is a solid reminder of the incredible strength of the original entry in the series. There are certainly some comforts lost by going back to the start, but the game is still incredible. Whether you have never played it before or you miss the good old days, this is a great remaster.

Our Rating: 9/10

Quarantine Circular Review

Quarantine Circular Review

Quarantine Circular is another brilliantly written game that will have you taking up different mind sets to get through it. It is at times charming, upsetting and inspiring and will have you playing it through to its conclusion in one sitting without you realising.

Our Rating: 10/10

Stellaris Distant Stars Review

Stellaris Distant Stars Review

The addition of new anomalies, leviathans, and gates to new systems Distant Stars does a great job of continuing the ongoing expansion of Stellaris. The game is an immensely enjoyable experience and the new features serve to give even more variety in each match.

Our Rating: 8/10

Gunman Clive Review

Gunman Clive Review

A short but intensely satisfying experience on the 3DS, Gunman Clive takes the best examples of the golden age of platforming and envelops them in the desert tones and atmosphere of the old west.

Our Rating: 9/10

Forgotton Anne Review

A beautiful platform adventure with gentle puzzle solving and a strong anime influence. Highly recommended.

Our Rating: 10/10

Omensight Review

Omensight Review

Omensight clearly has a lot of heart.

Our Rating: 8/10

The Adventure Pals Review

The Adventure Pals Review

A wonderfully charming platformer than has more character in the first five minutes than some manage in their entirety. The inclusion of local co-op means you can make your way through the story with a friend and share the weirdness together.

Our Rating: 8/10

Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze Review

Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze Review

A brutally challenging game made more accessible by both, being on a better console, and having the funkiest of Kongs as a playable character. Incredibly good fun and with an asburd amount of secrets to find, Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze is a truly impressive platformer that is so hard you will be a more grizzled gamer for coming out of the other side of it.

Our Rating: 9/10

God of War Review

With an exceptional story, brilliant acting, superb controls and gorgeous level design, God of War is a masterpiece and is easily the best title on the platform to date, and possibly the generation.

Our Rating: 10/10

Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Trilogy Review

Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Trilogy Review

Getting all three of these games is great and while the first is showing its age, the second and third instalments are still enjoyable fighting games. It is worth playing through the games in order for the story but for multiplayer the third is definitely the best option.

Our Rating: 8/10

Ni No Kuni 2: Revenant Kingdom - Review in Progress

Ni No Kuni 2: Revenant Kingdom - Review in Progress

7 hours in and this game is addictive and rewarding in a way that suggests there will few other games this year that can compete. It is as if Level-5 have put everything they have done in a cauldron and magically created this incredible RPG.

Our Rating: 9/10

Exorder Review

Exorder Review

A great turn based strategy that has the soul of Advance Wars mixed with swords and magic. Along with the entertaining campaign the multiplayer is a blast and with both online and offline modes will keep you entertained for a long time.

Surviving Mars Review

A solid strategy game that may suffer slightly from being, as with the surface of Mars, a little too dry
