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.

Shadow Of The Tomb Raider Review

Shadow Of The Tomb Raider Review

Overall, the game is a revelation, it's the nearest you are going to get to a perfect Tomb Raider game. It's sweat dripping environments whether in a jungle in Peru or deep in a tomb covered in blood or swimming through water filled caves filled with dead bodies made me feel like I needed to take a shower after each gaming session. Regardless of the age of the series, this game is keeping up with modern games and surpassing them in every way.

Razed Review

Razed might frustrate, annoy and even make you rage, but it's addictive gameplay, excellent soundtrack and your desire to master the leaderboards will pull you right back in.

Planet Alpha Review

Planet Alpha Review

Planet Alpha is a gorgeous trek through an alien world and the strange timey wimey things that afflict it. While the pacing can occasionally feel a little bit off, the slower moments do allow you time to take everything in. The puzzles are the only real challenge throughout and most aren't so obtuse that they become frustrating so it works well. If you are after a striking world to get lost in then maybe this is the one for you.

Divinity: Original Sin 2 Definitive Edition Review

Divinity: Original Sin 2 Definitive Edition Review

Divinity: Original Sin 2 was one of the best games of last year, console players were worse off for not getting to play it. The definitive edition rectifies this and changes some of the marginally less-than-stellar elements to create what is undoubtedly one of the most enjoyable CRPGs in a very long time, and a must play.

An astounding achievement. Hello Games deserve credit for creating one of the best games of this console generation - even if it did take a couple of years longer than planned!

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.

Jurassic World Evolution Review

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.

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.

Far Cry 5 builds impressively on the solid gameplay elements which made the series what it is today, and is a fun, rip-roaring open-world gaming experience that few in 2018 will surpass.

Surviving Mars Review

Surviving Mars Review

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

Sky Force Reloaded Review

Sky Force Reloaded Review

A brilliant shoot 'em up that harks back to the good old days of video games but with a refreshing modern update. You can jump in for one run and leave five hours later because the game play is so enjoyable.

The Escapists 2 Review

The Escapists 2 Review

The Escapists 2 builds upon its predecessor rather impressively. However, the expansive crafting options can lead to confusion when trying to plot your escape. Still, it's a fantastic improvement on The Escapists and well worth your time.
