The Best Xbox One Games

The Xbox One may have had a troubled launch, but since then Microsoft have made huge positive steps to make amends. Not only do we now have the uber-powerful Xbox One X; the most powerful console on the market, making up for the underpowered initial model, we also have the Xbox One S that supports 4K Blu-ray playback!

On top of that Microsoft launched Game Pass, their monthly subscription games library that is growing quickly and includes Microsoft's own first part releases as and when they released. It's now a great console and features some amazing games. Here are our favourites.

Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown Review

Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown Review

Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown is an excellent package. Its overly-complex narrative bogs down so much of what makes the game a carefree thrill ride, but a great campaign structure, intense multiplayer and a VR tour de force make this the best game in the storied franchise and one every pilot should pick up.

8-Bit Hordes Review

8-Bit Hordes Review

Scarce content removes the "strategy" from "real-time strategy"; this homage to classic RTS games sadly fails to imitate them.

My Time At Portia Review

My Time At Portia Review

My Time At Portia isn’t a game as much as it is a holiday, an adventure, and an achievement in indie game production. The intriguing world, compelling systems, and simple gameplay all makes it a fantastic experience.

Samsara Deluxe Review

Samsara Deluxe Review

Samsara invites the player into a shadowy and magical world of block-building puzzles. The gameplay experience falls down on its lack of detail, often leading to a lack of motivation to carry on into the depths of the game. However, the intricate solutions that can be achieved make the game time worthwhile, with play best reserved for a level or two in a spare few moments or a morning commute.

Gods: Remastered Review

Gods: Remastered Review

A great nostalgia ride but one which will only last you a short while.

Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden Review

Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden Review

Smart tweaks to an aging formula, fun characters and an excellent new stealth element more than make up for a disappointing by-the-numbers premise. A true sleeper hit.

Asterix and Obelix XXL 2 Remastered Review

Asterix and Obelix XXL 2 Remastered Review

Overall, I found myself enjoying some parts of the combat and almost all the cut scene dialog but the majority of my experience was filled with repetitive gameplay and poorly integrated platforming.

Override Mech City Brawl Review

Override Mech City Brawl Review

Pros: Easy to learn hard to master mechanics, engaging combat, good content to price ratio, couch multiplayer is wildly entertainingCons: Campaign can feel repetitive and easy, online feels good but not enough players.

Our Rating: /10

Storm Boy Review

Storm Boy Review

Storm Boy is a short and, ultimately, lovely experience. It is the perfect game to chill out with on a Sunday afternoon or to introduce younger players to the world of gaming whilst providing a strong eco-friendly message.

Battle Princess Madelyn Review

Battle Princess Madelyn Review

Battle Princess Madelyn is an immensely enjoyable throwback to the old-school that is consistently charming. The soundtrack and the graphics are both a delight and the character design is wonderful. While it can occasionally be a little frustrating the optimism in every aspect will keep you pushing through.

Just Cause 4 Review

Just Cause 4 Review

While it misses some of the best features from its predecessors, Just Cause 4 is a captivatingly fun experience, with enough new mechanics to be a staple for action fans.
