OXM’s 2018 [email protected] HIGH­LIGHTS

This year has been one of the strong­est yet for [email protected] Here are some of our favourites, as re­viewed in OXM in 2018

XBox: The Official Magazine - - INSIDER -

Warham­mer: Ver­mintide 2

Gi­ant rat men have al­lied with an army of hench body­builders in this FPS Warham­mer se­quel which, we noted, con­tained strong, sat­is­fy­ing melee com­bat and smart lev­els, mak­ing both a great se­quel and a fan­tas­tic mul­ti­player game, best en­joyed with mates.

Dead Cells

An ‘in­die must-have’, we pro­claimed of this beau­ti­ful pixel-art ti­tle. In­deed, a game fea­tur­ing a head­less corpse re­an­i­mated as its main char­ac­ter, set in a bleak prison, has never looked so lovely.

Over­cooked! 2

The Onion King has ac­ci­den­tally raised ‘the Un­bread’ after read­ing a dark magic book called the Ne­cronom­nom-icon – and other groan-wor­thy puns that re­ally just pro­vide dress­ing for what is cer­tainly the best and most fun couch co-op game of the year. 8 out of 10 for those com­pli­cated recipes!

Nid­hogg 2

This one-on-one du­elling game with tight con­trols and bright vi­o­lence earned it­self a solid OXM 8 out of 10, while we noted that it’s like what would hap­pen if plas­ticine mod­els got fighty. With per­fectly bal­anced fights and sim­ple yet de­vi­ously fun, friend-fight­ing ac­tion, we only wished there were more stages…
