With so much more, well, work to do, the expansion bolsters a core game that was a bit sparse at launch. At the same time, it’s hindered by the limitations of The Sims 4, which make it very hard to balance careers, family, and fun.

Visceral dialed back a bit on the outrageous action movie vibe, but added a few new wrinkles to the franchise's trademark combat and multiplayer. Even with that shift in focus and a different studio behind it all, Battlefield Hardline doesn't feel all that different from previous efforts.
Axiom Verge plays so closely to the original Metroid game that I'm wondering if it was meant to be a tribute or an imitation.
White Night, a horror-adventure game from OSome Studios, blends elements of noir films with old-school adventure gameplay and a striking visual style to create an experience that will feel altogether familiar to those old enough to remember gaming on floppy disks.
Despite not doing anything particularly new, Tipping Stars still a great puzzle game that does a nice job straddling the line between fun and frustrating.
Awakened Fate: Ultimatum follows main character Shin Kamikaze after he dies and is revived as God of Celestia in order to help the angels in their ongoing war against the devils of this world.
We were supposed to have already reached the apotheosis of Dead or Alive 5 with 2013's Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate, but Team Ninja has decided to increase the jiggle and give its ninja-, wrestler- and karate master-filled lineup one final makeover so the team can debut on current-gen systems. Being this is the fourth Dead or Alive 5 title released in a little over two years, it's easy to see that Koei Tecmo is doing things the Capcom way and trying to get the most out of Team Ninja's already polished combat system.
htoL#NiQ: The Firefly Diary has a confusing moniker, and its gameplay is just as perplexing. A puzzle platformer at heart, it crafts a compelling mystery amidst a darkened universe. Although saddled with a minor flaw, The Firefly Diary’s eerily seductive nature may win you over.
As Hand of Fate's unnamed protagonist, you're pitted against the enigmatic Dealer in a game of chance and skill, with the stakes being your life and freedom.
Apotheon doesn't have the deepest story, and Nick is a boring, blank canvas of a protagonist, but there's enough there to get things done while propelling you into the real action of exploring, fighting, and powering up.
