One dedicated fan said, "The campaign is amazingly good, with a great storyline and amazing graphics. I also love the open world setting, but you can still fight your way through the main story as well. This was one of the best Halo games, very enjoyable!"
"Great game, love the Marvel series. This is a must-have," one player said.
Syberia 3 is a puzzle game that's more focused on telling a story than presenting the player with challenges, but it's still a worthwhile adventure that differentiates itself from the first two games in the franchise. At just $6, what do you have to lose?
"Great game, I loved the graphics. I would recommend playing it if you loved Bioshock Infinite," one player said.
If you're itching for an in-depth city builder, you won't find a better game than Anno 1800. Plan out huge cities and logistic networks as you expand your towns and settle new lands. You can dominate opponents through warfare or with your mercantile prowess. This is designed for console play, so it's not nearly as demanding as the PC version — but it's just as fun.
Spiritfarer is a cozy game about death. You take on the role of Stella, a girl who makes the idea of passing over as comfortable as possible. Ferry spirits around on your boat, fish for their favorite snacks (or hidden treasure) and so much more. But fair warning — this game can tug at the heartstrings.
"I bought this for my boyfriend, as I usually buy Madden for him every year. I don’t play myself but the graphics and gameplay seem to be sharper each time a new one comes out. I love football myself and always feel like a game is on every time he plays," said one girlfriend.
One player wrote, "Wow, Didn’t expect much from this title. I’ve been playing since the Dreamcast days and I’ve gotta say they went above and beyond with the details, and the tracks are immense fun. My wife and I have been playing it since the day it released. I’m not one for these games, honestly. The rhythm game, the mini games, the music — honestly, Sega did it again. Get this if you need a little rhythm in your life. You can FULLY customize your character with endless options that you get by spending coins, You get those coins through gameplay and not DLC."
"Wow. The game is fun and beautiful. Amazing atmosphere . The sound is off-the-charts good. It's smooth as butter at launch. Housemarque has outdone themselves. It’s hard at first (well, it’s hard throughout the game in spots), but fun!" one player said.
"My 5-year-old loves this game! He is a Sonic the Hedgehog fan so he's always playing this on his Nintendo switch! It's pretty easy for him to play and understand directions. Well worth the price.
Tears of the Kingdom is an incredible follow-up to Breath of the Wild and builds upon and improves the foundation that game created. The new mechanics are very fun to use and allows you to solve puzzles in interesting ways every single time. Fusing Items is super fun and spices up the combat." Thus said one five-star reviewer.
