Sonic Mania Encore DLC review

Played on Windows
Also Available on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.

Sonic Mania is easily one of the best Sonic games that have come out in recent years, as I stated in a recent review (link this). But the train didn’t stop there. In addition to the excellent game, the team that brought us Sonic Mania took it a step further and produced DLC. I guess everything can’t be retro with this game.

Sonic Mania Review

Played on Windows
Also Available on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.

Sonic Mania made a big splash as it was created after a number of years.

Slime Rancher review

Played on Windows.
Also Available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, macOS, and Linux.
Disclosure (Review Copy) at the end

I picked up Slime Rancher because of how it looked. You can see the title screen below and it’s a really cute and charming game with adorable art. I’m a fan of Stardew Valley and was hopeful that Slime Rancher would give me a similar experience with a focus on building and improving a ranch over time. The question is, does it live up to the look and style?
