The latest edition of the prestigious EDGE video game magazine is now available and there are some great games reviewed in the magazine’s monthly edition. The top rated game this month was the critically acclaimed Forza Horizon 5, which received a nine out of ten. The new Call of Duty game Call of Duty: Vanguard only managed to score a six and Shin Megami Tensei V scored a seven out of ten. You can read the summaries of each of the reviews below.


Forza Horizon 5
“Whatever dystopian credit factory this landscape eventually becomes, Mexico is currently another dream showcase for Playground and its ability to strike a balance between manual and automatic: a world that welcomes you to ( and again) at every turn, while constantly spurring you on to do something completely out of character. This one is for the quick and the curious. Whiplash or not, hang in there. [9]

Call Of Duty: Vanguard
“Each protagonist has a lightly applied special ability (Nightingale’s smoothness, Arthur Kingsley’s squad controls, Wade Jackson’s ‘focused’ auto-aim) and they all combine in the final mission, in which you fly between the outlook and the story swings into a “blitz.” It’s a preview of what might have been – just like the closing scene, which hints at intrigue with Wolfenstein or Indiana Jones tone. But any suggestion of a sequel is premature. It’s a meditative origin story for a crew we wouldn’t bet seeing again. ” [6]

Guardians of the Galaxy
“Not that you can stray far – or that you’ll find much when you do.” Guardians keep you strapped in for the ride, and although he dives once too often, the emotional highs outweigh the patience-straining lows. And in places it’s really touching: Despite all their bickering, these Guardians have heart to spare, as history and systems find ways to let this found family help and support each other. They might be doing their fair share of running, then, but to paraphrase a certain Newton-Le-Willows crooner, it’s clear this dysfunctional group will never give up, let themselves down, or give up. [7]

Republic of the Horsemen
“Maybe that’s because, in a generation of consoles where convenience is king, this just might be its quintessential. Whether you want to scour the map, jump almost instantly from one event to the next, or awkwardly switch from a ski suit to a ski suit, hovering over the slopes before falling down to hurt them, all this – not to mention truly breathtaking views – is right at your fingertips. Or you can just don a rocket suit, press a button and spiral up, away from the hustle and bustle, those bumps and scratches fading from sight and mind. [7]

Shin Megami Tensei V
“While SMTV has some cool amenities – it helps to be warned that you’re about to approach a difficult boss, while the pillars encompass save, fast travel, shop, heal, and the world of. shadows, unlike Nocturne, which used different slots for each – it still takes holy patience to endure its many battles of attrition, where each ability requires MP and restores are in short supply. It’s disheartening when all your group has used up all of their MP on a boss that still has half a health bar left, though nothing is more demoralizing than a completed game that wipes out all progress since your last save. We’re used to the sadistic designs of Roguelikes and Soulslikes in recent years, but even these encourage one more attitude; by comparison, being sent back to the title screen will be a reject for many. Atlus who remember Matador’s angst in Nocturne the first time around will likely swallow their pride and move on, but newcomers who may confuse divinity and god mode are going to experience a rude awakening. [7]

Age Of Empires IV
“So it’s a quality RTS – although a few irritations spoiled the experience. The field of view is incredibly narrow, making the game slightly claustrophobic: a few more zoom levels would have been welcome. Path finding problems sometimes arise, with troops stranded in landscapes or not finding the fastest route to a destination (a throwback to 1999 that we don’t like). Single-player speed controls would make some of the uneventful long stretches in the campaign levels more bearable. And when the soldiers clash, it doesn’t evoke the brutality of medieval warfare, more like LARPs hitting each other with cardboard swords. Still, it’s one of the best real-time strategy games to appear on PC in quite some time, bringing a classic back to life without being completely beholden to it. [7]

Good game
“It wouldn’t be entirely fair to say that Happy Game has fewer moving parts than Chuchel – especially when part of the fear comes from things with too many moving parts – but the individual puzzles are easier to solve, which partly explains why there is no hint system. While the simpler nature of the challenges may be disappointing to some, it suits the instinctive nature of horror. Besides, nothing more complex and maybe it would have been necessary to extend a helping hand, and it wouldn’t do. Rather, it’s you who have to do the horrible grabbing and stretching, chopping and pruning of limbs, on behalf of that whiny boy. As hectic as it may seem to you to do on occasion, your journey through this mighty, horrific – and, yes, dark comedic – nightmare is the opposite of a drag. [8]

Conway: Disappearance in Dahlia View
“Which poses a bit of a dilemma. We’ve killed countless times in video games and committed a reasonable number of break-ins, but those indiscretions are getting closer. It’s an uncomfortable thrill, something the plot struggles with at times. The man is an amateur who interferes with a police investigation led by his own daughter, and his comments behind the camera – largely from the Roy Walker Observation School – suggest he may not be a brilliant detective. These questions are, however, largely dismissed by the climax, which offers an orderly (albeit impressively unpleasant) resolution of the mystery. As a detective story, Conway holds up fairly well; as a curious neighbor simulator he excels. Don’t be surprised if you feel dirty afterwards. [6]

House of Ashes
“For these dynamics to unfold to their fullest, however, you will need to keep the heads of the five people tied to their shoulders, through a combination of dialogue choices and fast-paced events. There’s a significant spiral of possibilities here, but Supermassive still hasn’t found a fancy way to demonstrate it to gamers. The incessant pinging of stat change notifications feels further removed from on-screen events than ever before, leaving us to rely on after-the-fact online research to appreciate how different things could have turned out. So the promise of the Dark Pictures series remains fresh, but the systems backing it start to creak with age. [6]

Exo One
“Sometimes the camera wobbles for all the wrong reasons, especially during two stopovers mid-game where, in trying to communicate the difficulties of the trip, Weston goes a little too far. Building enough momentum on the descending slopes of one satellite to come out of orbit so that you can circle the next one should be exciting. In practice, it is a succession of tedious failures, with insufficient audiovisual feedback to let you know where you are going wrong (and, above all, what you have done differently when you manage it). It’s an improvement over the previous step, where it turns into a kind of goofy platformer game. Still, Exo One brilliantly rallies, forcing you cleverly into crazy maneuvers to revive your faulty ship before a magical climax of black holes and revelations. This gripping, flawed, and daringly singular adventure firmly places Weston and his team among the kind of risky explorers his game pays homage to. [8]

Moon moon bay
Pleasantly meditative as it can be, it looks worn and ragged in places, that uncomfortable woolly itch comes too often to be ignored. The default camera is a bit too tight, your walking speed a bit too slow, the day on the move. a little too fast There are some strange inconsistencies: not having been informed of how and where to moor, we are somehow able to call for a tow before we even pay for a radio. And the screen tearing on PC and console is some of the worst we’ve come across. Bunnyhug swore to tie some of those loose threads, but in fishing parlance it sounds a bit too often like the one who escaped. [5]

“There are however times when everything clicks, where your goal is more obvious and the solution feels more organic, even in the game’s fantastic logic. There is a delicious puzzle involving reflections, for example, while a sequence in a pub features several imaginative flourishes, with a number of them centered on a single pint glass. Moncage is worth experiencing for those moments alone, but when you flip that cube over and look inside, it’s normal for these worlds to feel like they’re held in a display case. It’s the kind of ornamental contraption that elicits oohs and aahs when viewed from afar, but was never really meant to be played with. [6]
