Taking place in an expansive open-world city with 20 distinct districts, LEGO City is ripe for exploration and activities to enjoy alone or shared with a friend. An absolutely wonderful game that is simply bursting with content.

2. Star Fox Zero

As everyone’s favourite space pilot Fox McCloud, Star Fox Zero is an explosive action-packed game that sees players blasting through an onslaught of enemy forces to bring peace to the galaxy. With missions on land and in the air, get ready to take the controls of a variety of vehicles and hone your skills as your TV shows your vehicle’s surroundings while you use your Gamepad to aim. It’s a remarkably innovative mechanic that works stunningly well, resulting in Fox’s finest outing to date.
