Written by Jon Sutton on 28 July 2014 at 16:10

It wasn’t until we took a step back and looked at some of the titles hitting stores this month that we realised what a cracking line up we’ve had.

Covering everything from a truly genre-defining RPG to a return to form for WW2 shooters, we take a run down of the best games we’ve been playing in July across all platforms... [More]
