XBox: The Official Magazine (US) - - REVIEW -

We don’t know about you, but af­ter the dis­ap­point­ment of both Destiny 2 and Star Wars: Bat­tle­front II, we’ve had a rather big on­line mul­ti­player-shaped hole in our lives. There are some ben­e­fits to such a gap how­ever: It leads us to try­ing things we nor­mally wouldn’t in­vest that much time in and find­ing un­ex­pected hits. Step up

Mon­ster Hunter: World which has been wow­ing us as we slay beasts with our friends, but does it do enough to fill that hole? Read our thoughts on p62. Else­where we get to frolic with a cute dragon fox thing in the for­est in Fe (p66). With its love for mu­sic it might as well be con­sid­ered mag­i­cal karaoke as you get to sing to trees. It looks sim­i­lar in style to

Ori And The Blind For­est, but here’s hop­ing it’s not as sad. Thank­fully, we’ve also been able to dis­tract our­selves by be­com­ing fully im­mersed in all things me­dieval thanks to King­dom Come: De­liv­er­ance (p72). It’s un­like any other RPG we’ve played, fa­vor­ing his­tor­i­cal ac­cu­racy, but also giv­ing you a lot of free­dom to choose your own path, be that bat­tling in civil wars or liv­ing like a her­mit. Fi­nally, we’re ready­ing our fists and feet for some all-out brawl­ing in UFC 3 over on p74. With the most re­al­is­tic per­spi­ra­tion we’ve ever seen in a game, we’re feel­ing tired and sweaty just look­ing at it. Here’s hop­ing the game it­self gives us as much of a work out.
