Sea of Thieves Review

The first thing you’ll notice is the absolutely beautiful world. Rendered in Rare's tradition of stylized forms and exaggerations, the breathtaking scenery bathed in a beautiful lighting and colors of dynamic weather and time of day. Oh, and the sea… it’s simply astonishing. The calm and clear sea is a pure paradise sight straight from a postcard, while the storming ocean is a frightening beast, crashing wildly around and beating mercilessly your ship.

Gears of War 4

Doubtless the best looking Gears game to date, Gears of War 4 is one of the most visually impressive games on the Xbox One, period (and yes, I am one of those who think that graphics matter). While the combat is familiar, it is also fine-tuned and polished for maximum challenge and enjoyment, whether in the multiplayer modes, or plowing through the campaign alone.

Quantum Break

I think the best way I can describe Quantum Break is that it's a game that I never felt compelled to come back to. I never got invested in the experience; when I sat down to play I always enjoyed myself, but I never found any part of Quantum Break to be all that satisfying. It's obvious that some masterful developers put this game together but the game lacks the intangible grab that truly great games have. Quantum Break for me ends up being a middle of the road third-person action game with some pretty spectacular ideas with shaky execution.
