Madden NFL 17
EDITORS' TAKE

Madden NFL 17 (PlayStation 4)

What a week with Madden's new features and obsessive details did for my love-hate relationship with my childhood team.

Inside
REVIEW

Inside (PC)

Inside is a brilliant work of atmosphere that tells a twisted and engaging story. It's smart, bizarre and one the finest gaming experiences of the year.

Available on Steam:
$19.99

Uncharted 4: A Thief's End
REVIEW

Uncharted 4: A Thief's End (PlayStation 4)

Uncharted 4: A Thief's End is a spectacular send-off that celebrates the franchise, all while delivering superb storytelling, acting, production values -- you name it.

Quantum Break
REVIEW

Quantum Break (Xbox One)

Quantum Break is a unique videogame/live-action TV show hybrid that features dazzling visual effects and presentation. Even though its gameplay falls a bit short the whole package is probably worth experiencing -- just maybe not at full price.

No Man's Sky
EDITORS' TAKE

No Man's Sky (PS4, Digital Code)

A nearly infinite universe, ready to be explored: Here's what it's like to finally play No Man's Sky for the first time.

Far Cry Primal
REVIEW

Far Cry Primal (PlayStation 4)

Even though it is apparently cut from the same cloth, Far Cry Primal does enough to separate itself from previous iterations of the game thanks to its solid melee, hunting and taming mechanics.

Tom Clancy's The Division
EDITORS' TAKE

Tom Clancy's The Division (Xbox One)

Take back New York in this third-person shooter.

Firewatch
REVIEW

Firewatch (PlayStation 4)

Picturesque and mysterious, Firewatch brings a fantastic narrative that's a pleasure to experience.

Available on PSN:
$19.99

The Witness

XCOM 2
EDITORS' TAKE

XCOM 2 (PC)

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 One)

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 (Xbox One)

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.

Pricing not available

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 (PlayStation 4)

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