Your gam­ing month sorted with our de­fin­i­tive re­views

XBox: The Official Magazine - - REVIEW -

The gam­ing busy-sea­son is upon us, so we’re go­ing to ease in slowly with a proper warm-up of thumb-stretches and sofa sit-ups to get us pre­pared for the months ahead. It’ll be a time of plenty, but re­mem­ber not to over-in­dulge on all of the dig­i­tal de­lights com­ing out in the run-up to Christ­mas. Don’t be­come a gam­ing glut­ton. First we’re kick­ing things off with a few games of foot­ball with FIFA 18 (p70) to get into the fran­tic rhythm of tight matches and team man­age­ment. Next it’s time for a de­tour with Forza Mo­tor­sport 7 (p74) to check out just how many beau­ti­ful cars our eye­balls can han­dle in prepa­ra­tion for the glo­ri­ous 4K fu­ture with the Xbox One X. Next it’s time to max­imise your so­cial skills by learn­ing to keep tabs on all of your en­e­mies so you know who to dom­i­nate and when in

Mid­dle-earth: Shadow Of War (p78). Dif­fer­en­ti­ate be­tween en­e­mies you can turn to work for you and friends who will turn on you at the slight­est ac­ci­den­tal head-blud­geon­ing. We were try­ing to hit the bad orc be­hind you, hon­est. Fi­nally, it’s time to get your heart rate go­ing with a chal­lenge in the shape of Cup­head (p84). Don’t be fooled by its charm­ing an­i­ma­tions, this beast is se­ri­ously tricky to over­come and will push your re­ac­tions and co-op skills to break­ing point. Af­ter that you’ll be ready for any gam­ing chal­lenge thrown at you.
