Risk of Rain 2 is an excitingly fresh take on the roguelike genre and is quite simply one of the best games released in 2019 so far, despite this being an early access release.
Dungeon Defenders Collection merges tower defense and light RPG mechanics with action based gameplay. In typical tower defense fashion, you and your friends or strangers online, must lay down defences and utilize the unique skill set of each playable character to take a grip of the missions and stop the horde from destroying the Eternia Crystals scattered around each of the intricately designed maps.
Gather coins by satisfyingly crushing the bones of your skeletal foes with your starting sword and shield before affording the luxury of purchasing magic spells that can absorb hitpoints from enemies or hurl molten balls of destruction towards those that stood between me and my goal. The array of weapons also showcases the varying degrees of playstyles and the different challenges that come from wielding your newly purchased skeleton-bashers.
Trials Rising features a myriad of pristinely designed tracks which transported me around the world and I was racing through Hollywood movie sets, soaring through the air attempting not to plummet to my death as a plane breaks apart or in the serene, snowy depths of Finland, all of which is achieved using the series' best looking graphics to date.
PES 2019 is a fantastic football simulation, marred with small issues that, if fixed, would see the franchise grow. If you are looking for a great single player or local co-op experience, I would give the game a go - if you are purchasing this for the multiplayer; proceed with caution due to matchmaking issues.
