Your gam­ing month sorted with our de­fin­i­tive re­views

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

Do you hear it? There, in the dis­tance... a stam­pede of games head­ing this way. It’s that time of year, the an­nual mega mi­gra­tion of block­busters and hid­den gam­ing de­lights has started and the first few big hit­ters are run­ning through for the start of the win­ter sea­son. First up is Lara’s fi­nal out­ing of the re­booted tril­ogy with Shadow Of The Tomb Raider over on p74. She’s changed a lot since her ner­vous start, be­com­ing far more con­fi­dent in her abil­i­ties, but can the game it­self match her changes? Read on to find out. Else­where we’ve pulled up our socks for this year’s lat­est foot­ball game in­stal­ments start­ing with FIFA 19 (p78). We get a new en­try ev­ery year, and with loads of tweaks and new bells and whis­tles this looks to be an im­prove­ment on last year, though is it enough of a leap to jus­tify shelling out for? We’ve also been tak­ing a spin be­hind the wheel of the ab­so­lutely huge Forza Hori­zon 4 on p80. The Bri­tish map is mas­sive and fea­tures four dy­namic sea­sons, so all of the Brits out there have even more rea­sons to talk about the weather. All it needs now is tea-mak­ing fa­cil­i­ties and it’d be our favourite game ever. Fi­nally, we check out Life Is Strange 2 (p90) to see if it’s a wor­thy fol­low-up to the amaz­ing story of the first sea­son. This time we’ll be fol­low­ing new char­ac­ters on their ad­ven­tures.
