Crash Team Racing: Nitro Fueled rebuilds this classic kart racer from the ground-up and showcases how a retro title should be done. The graphics have been given a modern makeover – vastly improving on the original. They’re amped to the max and the game runs fast and silky-smooth. Unlike Crash Trilogy, this game feels like more than just a simple graphical upgrade. Boosting is what differentiates this game from Mario Kart. You’ll have to know when to start and finish a power slide, which enables the use of a triple-boost system — requiring precise timing. As you power slide through turns, your gauge fills. Pressing a shoulder button at the right time allows you to boost and successive boosts feature shorter time gaps. With the triple-boost, you could blast from the back of the pack to the front. The game features typical power-ups: shields, rockets, speed boosts, invincibility, and a Mario Kart-inspired blue shell-like item.

We love the freedom you now have to freely explore the levels. Gooigi, a Luigi made of goo, is back and allows you to slip through metal fences and walk on spikes. There’s even co-op, 8-player multiplayer, and a mode where you have to defeat all ghosts before time runs out. Expect a ton of traps and mysteries to unravel.
Cadence of Hyrule: Crypt of the NecroDancerRated E
Cadence of Hyrule is the best Zelda spinoff not made by Nintendo. It’s a fresh and interesting take on Zelda with rhythm-based movement and combat. The world of Hyrule is randomly generated. With the rhythm component, every fight becomes a puzzle. What’s cool? You can choose to play as either Link or Zelda. We love that it really nails the exploration, discovery, and leveling up your powers like the best Zelda games.
Death StrandingRated RP

Shops in the world feature more items than before. This version feels more like a proper RPG with leveling up moves. You’ll have to beat the game by a time limit as in previous games.

Players must control the little guy with the PS4 controller as the levels unfold all around you. The game constantly surprises you with new perspectives and ideas that would not be possible in an ordinary platformer. It’s a charming game and the best use of VR yet.
New Super Mario Bros U DeluxeRated E
While New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe still has much of its Mario magic, it feels less important given the Switch is overflowing with high quality 2D platformers. Toadette is now a playable character with more precise controls than Mario and Luigi. The game also includes the Super Luigi U expansion. Despite these additions, the game fails to standout in a crowded market. There’s not enough here to make it a must-have for fans, but it’s still a fun adventure worth playing.
Mario Kart 8 DeluxeRated E
