Trackmania (2020) reviewed by Alex Santa Maria on PC. Trackmania modernizes the series’ signature speedy time trials, but its off-putting subscription model may limit the creative energy that fuels its best moments. #ign #gaming

Assetto Corsa Competizione reviewed by Luke Reilly on Xbox One X. Also available on PlayStation 4. “When going toe-to-toe with some evenly matched AI as the sun sets through the trees, Assetto Corsa Competizione’s console version settles into a pretty satisfying groove. There’s a very positive emphasis on consistency and racecraft here, and the deep

Torchlight 3 Early Access reviewed by T.J. Hafer on PC. “There’s nothing desperately wrong with Torchlight 3, which just came out in Early Access form a week ago. It’s a flashy, bombastic, nicely-paced action-RPG with tons of enemies to slash, blast, and explode for the tasty loot inside. The problem is that it doesn’t really

Waking reviewed by Terence Wiggins on PC. Also available on Xbox One. “Everyone has their shortlist of favorite food and drinks. You might like pizza, steak, red velvet cake, and chamomile tea. But you would never want to dump all of that onto one plate, mash it all together, and then expect it to taste

Little Orpheus reviewed by Leif Johnson on iPhone 11 Pro via Apple Arcade. “There’s not much to Little Orpheus’s gameplay apart from moving left to right, jumping, and interacting with a few objects, but that’s compensated by stellar voice acting and gorgeous settings to journey through.

Valorant reviewed by Kyle Campbell on PC. “Nail-biting bomb plants, hip fire headshots, and hypernatural flicks of the wrist are the tenets of Valorant. This 5v5 tactical hero shooter by League of Legends developer Riot Games had a stranglehold on me from my first carefully strategized victory. Now, after clocking 90 hours between the closed

Reviewed by Tristan Ogilvie on PlayStation 4. Also available on Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC. “Those Who Remain features an eerie atmosphere, inventive puzzles, and some moments of genuine tension via its shape-shifting world, but fussy controls, one-dimensional stealth, and a narrative that lacks cohesion prevent it from stepping completely out of the darkness

Crucible reviewed by Kyle Campbell on PC. “Crucible plucks popular staples from all over esports, attempting to forge a greater whole through the fires of interstellar warfare.
