The plot, the narrative, and the city all come together cohesively, making Watch Dogs 2 an absolute joy to play through. Ubisoft has a lot of experience with making open-world games, but this gets the formula just right.

It’s been a while since Hitman Episode 2: Sapienza hit and there have been two main episodes and a bonus episode released since.

Battleborn tries to be a (handsome) jack of all trades by combining various aspects of first-person shooters, RPGs, and MOBAs, but ends up being a master of none. It’s identity crisis is evident even in the art style.
Alienation is a fantastic combination of what made me love Diablo 3, Helldivers, and Dead Nation, rolled into a single package full of some of the best looking explosions ever.
A fantastically designed game that will impress newcomers to the series, but for series veterans, the constant feeling of deja vu might leave a bitter aftertaste.
Sapienza presents what Episode 1 should have been, with its big sandbox and variety of ways to achieve objectives with great core gameplay.
UFC 2 is recommended for fans or newcomers looking to dip their feet. There’s a lot of fun just playing one-off matches at the end of a long work day, and couch multiplayer is an absolute riot.
Quantum Break is a fantastic game with killer gameplay and an interesting story featuring great characters. The flashy combat is Remedy doing what it does best. It definitely falls into the “must play” category.
The first Hitman episode just shows how far Square Enix is willing to go to shove an online system where it doesn’t belong, and splitting up what could have been a great game into episodes ruins the overall experience despite great core gameplay.
The Division does a lot of things right, looks gorgeous and is super addictive. It might be too early to tell if the game has legs to stay relevant in the long run, but it is still recommended wholeheartedly.
Far Cry: Primal is a fantastic example of building a unique experience with a world that feels real using some old ideas in innovative ways
Life is Strange is one of the best story-driven adventure games of the last few years, and coupled with choices that actually matter, an amazing soundtrack, well written story, and great characters, I’m looking forward to seeing what Dontnod does next.

Judged on its own merits, Anno 2205 is a pretty decent strategy game. It plays well and looks amazing. However, when compared with the rest of the series, it feels like a step back.
Stasis manages to entertain, disturb, challenge and disgust with equal measure. The story stumbles and some puzzles are tedious, but it is one hell of a scary experience and unlike any other recent horror game.
The Taken King breathes new life into the troubled franchise. It adds a ton of new content and brings some much needed changes. In many ways it is what Destiny should have been in the first place, it’s just a bit unfortunate that it took a year to get there.
