10 Worthwhile Games You May Have Missed in 2017

8. Let Them Come

Let Them Come Body 1

Available on Xbox One, PC and PS4
Read our review

It’s rare such a simple game makes an impact on us, but Let Them Come‘s brilliantly addictive gameplay loop had us hooked when it released back in October.

Stuck aboard a space vessel that’s been invaded by all kinds of nasty aliens, it’s up to you to kill them all and survive. There’s only one catch though: you’re fixed in place behind a mounted machine gun. There’s no wandering around, running and gunning. Like the title says, you’ve got to let them come to you.

Don’t let its basic idea put you off: Let Them Come is an absolute joy to play thanks to a decent upgrade system, eye-catching pixelated visuals and brilliant enemy designs. If you want something to pick up the slack inbetween some more meatier titles, definitely give this one some consideration. You won’t regret it.

7. Battle Chasers: Nightwar

Available on PS4, Xbox One, PC

The world of turn-based RPGs is so overpopulated, it’s easy to miss when a new one comes out. Based on the comic book world bearing its name, Battle Chasers: Nightwar is a superb dungeon-crawling, turn-based RPG. Featuring vibrant, stunning overworlds and dark, gritty dungeons, this title blends together all the great RPG tropes in exquisite fashion. A rich party/skill/equipment system and immersive combat allows the player to really find their own playstyle. Beautiful art, wonderful dialogue, and excellent music follow you everywhere you go.

Undoubtedly a paradise for those who love the grind of RPGs, Battle Chasers: Nightwar asks you again and again to jump back into the fight. You’ll probably die a lot in this game, so make sure you learn a lesson from each encounter. Epic boss battles, diverse worlds, and enough variation in abilities/characters to keep even the most diehard fans happy. A lengthy campaign that progressively ups the challenge and so much to do outside of it make for a great game that is true to its inspirations. Simple, pure, turn-based goodness.
