Keeping track of all the games arriving each week on PC, handhelds, consoles and mobile is no easy track, but don’t worry, I’m here to help. Every week in Five Games I separate the wheat from the chaff and pick the titles you need to pay attention to.
We recently freshened up the Five Games format a bit. The Pick of the Week is now listed first, and the rest of the games are filed under headings that will hopefully be more helpful for you. Looking for the latest indie hotness? Check the Steam picks. Want to download something for your Xbox One or PS4 on a Saturday night? Hit up the Console Downloads section. So, without further ado…
Pick of the Week
Mirror’s Edge Catalyst (PC, Xbox One & PS4, June 7)
After much begging and pleading by fans, the Mirror’s Edge series makes its triumphant return this week. Mirror’s Edge Catalyst brings back the exhilarating first-person platforming of the original, but this time around everything takes place within the open-world city of Glass. There’s also a number of necessary tweaks to combat, including the removal of gunplay (thank goodness).
Mirror’s Edge Catalyst doesn’t change the established formula all that much, but it adds an impressive layer of extra polish, and when the game sticks to what it does best, it’s a lot of edge-of-your-seat fun. Keep an eye out for our full review later this week.
