After the increasingly over-the-top and comic book-like storylines of Yakuza 3 and 5, the largely stripped down and gritty origins of Yakuza 0 register as something of a breath of fresh air. The game is made better by focusing on the core characters of Kiryu and Majima, the two driving forces behind the series, and if the backdrop of Kamurocho started feeling a bit old hat several sequels ago, at least the Eighties era coat of paint gives it something of a new sheen. This is a series highlight.

Kratos is back and, while his anger may have been tempered by both time and fatherhood, his series still deserves to stand shoulder to shoulder with the best the Playstation 4 has to offer. Cory Balrog, director of the fan favorite second entry, returns for this long-awaited sequel, in which Kratos trades in his chains for a more methodical, Dark Souls-inspired combat system that - along with the immersive narrative - makes this one of 2018's standout titles. Action fans can't go wrong here.

So far, Trails of Cold Steel II poses one major question: do incremental but very convenient improvements over its predecessor make up for the fact that this sequel largely sees the player visiting areas recycled from the first game? Cold Steel II benefits from features like onscreen notifications of the player's progress towards completion, new characters to utilize in battle, rock/paper/scissors Mech battles that channel fond memories of Xenogears, and more.
