Sticks and stones will definitely break your bones as Ubisoft takes its Far Cry series back to 10,000 BC for some Primal action.

Here's everything you need to know about EVE: Valkyrie.

XCOM 2
EDITORS' TAKE

XCOM 2

The sequel to 2012's beloved XCOM: Enemy Unknown deals in staple sci-fi storytelling and an excellent refinement of the series' turn-based combat.

Just Cause 3
REVIEW

Just Cause 3 ( PlayStation 4)

Just Cause 3 provides a satisfying over-the-top action experience that is guaranteed to thrill, even if it falls short in a few sub-categories.

WWE 2K16
REVIEW

WWE 2K16 ( PlayStation 4)

WWE 2K16 is an enjoyable game for wrestling fans, but you may be better off waiting for a price drop.

Star Wars Battlefront
EDITORS' TAKE

Star Wars Battlefront ( PlayStation 4)

Relive the battles of "Star Wars" in Battlefront.

Fallout 4
REVIEW

Fallout 4 ( PC)

Fallout 4 is one of the year's best games -- an amazing post-apocalyptic world to explore and experience.

Rise of the Tomb Raider
REVIEW

Rise of the Tomb Raider ( Xbox 360)

Lara Croft's latest adventure delivers a satisfying action game that also brings back some the puzzle solving and tomb raiding that the series cut its teeth on, even if it's a bit easier than what loyalists might be used to.

Call of Duty Black Ops 3
EDITORS' TAKE

Call of Duty Black Ops 3 ( PlayStation 4)

The latest entry in the Call of Duty series is all about cybernetic soldiers, increased mobility, and zombies.

Nevermind
REVIEW

Nevermind ( PC)

Nevermind is a unique horror experience that steps outside the normal jump-scares to deliver something tense and personal. Although it's short, it's intense, especially if you make use of the biofeedback.

Available on Steam:
$19.99

Halo 5: Guardians
REVIEW

Halo 5: Guardians ( Xbox One)

Halo 5: Guardians is an exceptional technical achievement with a solid campaign and a compelling set of multiplayer modes. At the same time it refuses to do anything else outside of its wheelhouse, which may disappoint some players.

Assassin's Creed: Syndicate
REVIEW

Assassin's Creed: Syndicate ( PlayStation 4)

Assassin's Creed: Syndicate is a captivating adventure game that rebounds happily from the disappointment that was last year's Unity. Syndicate makes great use of its setting, doesn't overwhelm the player with mindlessness and stands on its own as a great open world game, even if its core is slowly growing tired.

LEGO Dimensions Starter Pack
REVIEW

LEGO Dimensions Starter Pack ( PlayStation 4)

It has all the usual "toys-to-life" bugbears, but Lego Dimensions is packed with great characters, clever puzzles and a physical experience you won't get anywhere else.

FIFA 16
REVIEW

FIFA 16 ( PlayStation 4)

FIFA 16 continues its solid track record by improving on an already winning formula and introducing Women's International Teams for the very first time.

NHL 16
REVIEW

NHL 16 ( PlayStation 4)

It's not without its shortcomings, but NHL 16 is a significant step in the right direction, laying the groundwork for even more improvement in the future.

Forza Motorsport 6
EDITORS' TAKE

Forza Motorsport 6

The Xbox racing sim franchise debuts this month with over 450 cars, 26 tracks, new night and rain racing modes, and an odd car-based mod system.

Mad Max
REVIEW

Mad Max

Mad Max has a fair amount of issues that are guaranteed to frustrate, but there's a handful of delectable chaos inside that's worth being exposed to -- just maybe not at full price.

Until Dawn
REVIEW

Until Dawn ( PlayStation 4)

Supermassive Games deserves high praise for taking a path less taken with Until Dawn, but the end result is more of a clever experiment than a glorious success.

Magic Duels
REVIEW

Magic Duels ( PlayStation 4)

Magic Duels' tutorial mode is among the best ways to learn to play Magic, but interface problems and poor cross-device support mean the average player should look elsewhere for their fix.

Pricing not available

Batman: Arkham Knight
REVIEW

Batman: Arkham Knight ( PlayStation 4)

If you're a fan of the other Arkham games, you're going to really enjoy Arkham Knight, even if there's a handful of stuff you've seen before. The Batmobile and a number of new ideas and mechanics freshen the overall experience and the game's powerful brand of storytelling provides a satisfying connection between the in-game action.

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt
EDITORS' TAKE

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt ( PlayStation 4)

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is already on a short list of 2015's best games.

LEGO Jurassic World
EDITORS' TAKE

LEGO Jurassic World ( Xbox One)

Lego Jurassic World freshens up the formula. You can insert your own bone-related pun here.

Axiom Verge
EDITORS' TAKE

Axiom Verge ( PlayStation 4)

Axiom Verge is an indie game that mixes equal parts Metroid and Castlevania to make for a fantastic throwback adventure.

Available on the PlayStation Network.
$19.99

Bloodborne
REVIEW

Bloodborne ( PlayStation 4)

Meticulously designed for a very specific hardcore audience, Bloodborne is a marvel along those parameters. But if you're the type of player looking for a way to unwind through a game, look the other way.

Battlefield Hardline
EDITORS' TAKE

Battlefield Hardline ( PC)

Battlefield Hardline takes the fight to the streets, but does this new episodically framed first-person shooter take the series in a welcome direction?

The Order: 1886
REVIEW

The Order: 1886 ( PlayStation 4)

The Order: 1886 is a beautiful and impressive technical achievement, but it's also chock-full of frustrating control issues. Odd pacing and a less than compelling storyline don't help either.

Dying Light
REVIEW

Dying Light ( Xbox One)

There's fun to be had with Dying Light, but it's not going to breathe new life into a genre that's essentially on life support.

Evolve
REVIEW

Evolve ( PC)

Evolve is a welcome evolution from the Turtle Rock Studios team and a refreshing kind of title that you likely haven't experienced before, introducing excellent four-versus-one action that can be enjoyed on- or offline.
