Warriors Orochi 3 Ultimate is a port of Warriors Orochi 3 (PS3 and 360), a tactical combat game where you singlehandedly take down whole armies. The game met with generally positive reviews, with Eurogamer specifically advising newcomers to the hack-n-slash series to give it a shot. "Carve you way through the crude visuals, archaic menus and seemingly inexplicable features and you may just find your new favourite game", they wrote.
Fans of the series know what WWE is about. Take control of 'Stone Cold' Steve Austin, Seth Rollins, Daniel Bryan, Dean Ambrose or one of the other famous wrestlers and step into that fighting cage! Critics called WWE 2K16 one of the best in the series and a return to glory for the franchise, with GamesRadar+ calling it the best wrestling game since Here Comes The Pain.
Rogue-like dungeon explorers may seem like a thing from the past, but Spelunky proves you wrong. This platformer will have you exploring dungeons full of treasures, traps and monsters and is one of the most beloved indie-games of the past few years.
Beyond Good & Evil is one of those games that may not have been a big hit at first, but thousands of gamers grew to love this charming adventure game over the years. The original is almost 13 years old, but this HD remake is still very much worth your while. Oh, and Ubi? Give us Beyond Good & Evil 2!
