Disgaea 7: Vows of the Virtueless boxart

Disgaea 7: Vows of the Virtueless Review

If you liked previous Disgaea games — grinding your levels up to max, performing increasingly higher damaging attacks, and seeing a mass of numbers fill your screen — Disgaea 7 continues that trend and amplifies it further.

Cyberpunk 2077 boxart

Cyberpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty Review

Phantom Liberty itself is an all-time great expansion, taking all of the best elements of Cyberpunk 2077 and cranking them all up to eleven.

Rune Factory 3 Special boxart

Rune Factory 3 Special Review

Rune Factory 3 Special brings a fan favourite entry into the modern era relatively untouched, for better or worse.

The Legend of Nayuta: Boundless Trails boxart

The Legend of Nayuta: Boundless Trails Review

The Legend of Nayuta: Boundless Trails invokes a feeling of an earlier era of Falcom in some of the best ways. With a charming presentation and commendable gameplay, this is a satisfying game and an easy recommendation to anyone looking for a light-hearted action RPG romp.

Lies of P boxart

Lies of P Review

Despite its unique weapon system and generally friendlier structuring, Lies of P hews a little too closely to its inspirations to rise above feeling like something of an also-ran. But even also-rans can be polished, attractive, and exciting experiences in their own right.

Fae Farm boxart

Fae Farm Review

Newcomer to the farming sim genre, Fae Farm, looks to shake things up with its quality of life improvements and unique twists, resulting in a lovely game.

Sea of Stars boxart

Sea of Stars Review

Sea of Stars presents a potent mix of combat systems bolstered by a charming story and gorgeous graphical presentation that captures the essence of the turn-based classics.

Anonymous;Code boxart

Anonymous;Code Review

Anonymous;Code managed to grab my attention in a way that other SciADV games weren’t able to, due to its captivating story and excellent pacing.

Starfield boxart

Starfield Review

Starfield is wider, wilder, and more ambitious than I expected - but also shows surprising restraint in many areas. More than the sum of its parts, it's the best game of this type Bethesda has delivered.

Virgo Vs The Zodiac boxart

Virgo Vs The Zodiac Review

Virgo Vs The Zodiac is quite unique, and for the most part is better for it. Personally, I don’t see how a game that lets you ride an alpaca and purge heretics could’ve gone wrong. But the combat and systems don't shake up much over time.

Baldur's Gate 3 boxart

Baldur's Gate 3 Review

Baldur's Gate 3 is a triumph, offering an incredible level of scope, depth, and reactivity that only comes around in role-playing games a couple of times a generation.

Atlas Fallen boxart

Atlas Fallen Review

Atlas Fallen is an average action RPG with some interesting Momentum combat mechanics, a passable open-world, subpar presentation, and a disappointing narrative.

Stray Gods: The Roleplaying Musical boxart

Stray Gods: The Roleplaying Musical Review

While Stray Gods is subtitled The “Roleplaying” Musical, it plays much more akin to a visual novel or adventure game than what one might call an RPG, though the musical part still applies. The music is especially fun and some tracks definitely would have a place in theatre.

Arcadian Atlas boxart

Arcadian Atlas Review

While there are admirable aspects about Arcadian Atlas on a conceptual level, several usability issues and an imbalanced gameplay experience merely makes it mediocre.

Remnant II boxart

Remnant II Review

There have been a good chunk of high profile action RPGs recently and Remnant II triumphs them when it comes to providing a fulfilling RPG experience.

Jagged Alliance 3 boxart

Jagged Alliance 3 Review

Jagged Alliance 3 is an excellent game, merging squad-based tactics and classic computer-style roleplaying in an entertaining veneer of cheesy action movies.

Atelier Marie Remake: The Alchemist of Salburg boxart

Atelier Marie Remake: The Alchemist of Salburg Review

This remake of the very first game, now titled Atelier Marie Remake: The Alchemist of Salburg, is both an opportunity for new fans and old to see where it all began. Like the original, it has a pretty small scope, however, it is a mostly relaxing experience.

The Legend of Heroes: Trails into Reverie boxart

The Legend of Heroes: Trails into Reverie Review

While Trails into Reverie does serve as a strong epilogue to multiple in-game story arcs, it also spends a significant amount of time spinning its wheels.

Master Detective Archives: Rain Code boxart

Master Detective Archives: Rain Code Review

This neon-soaked mystery game is Kodaka’s best work to date.

Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective boxart

Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective Review

Really more of a guardian angel, if you think about it.

Final Fantasy XVI boxart

Final Fantasy XVI Review

Final Fantasy XVI is a confident game with amazing combat, an earnest narrative, and unbridled spectacle. Faults in pacing, RPG depth, quest design, and all those other nagging criticisms be damned - this game is special.

Miasma Chronicles boxart

Miasma Chronicles Review

While Miasma Chronicles' combat stylings are compelling, an undercooked narrative riddled with cliches, weak characters, and some glitchy behaviors hold this tactical RPG from its potential.

Etrian Odyssey Origins Collection boxart

Etrian Odyssey Origins Collection Review

Etrian Odyssey is a great dungeon RPG series, and its transition to PC & Switch is an admirable one, but some interface oddities and a hefty pricepoint raise eyebrows.

Loop8: Summer of Gods boxart

Loop8: Summer of Gods Review

Loop8 is a game full of great ideas that never come together.

Forspoken boxart

Forspoken Review

Serviceable action combat can't salvage a disappointing narrative and trivial open world.
