    Tense, dynamic, relentless. Even though the campaigns lack a solid narrative this is a refreshingly different real time tactic game that delivers adrenaline by the bucket.

    As in the first season the third episode is an emotional highlight.

    Awesome track design and fun extras make Mario Kart 8 an instant party classic. Nonetheless the single player “campaign” could be more progressive.

    It’s a pity that the Definitive Edition falls short to the PC in terms of certain texture details. But other than that even two years after its premiere the rejuvenated Dante and his brother show that they still got it.

    It is short, but Rain gives you tons of magical, suspenseful and emotional moments.

    The dynamic fights could have been more challenging but the bosses deliver and in the grand scheme the fighting is just a small part of the complex Darksiders mosaic. If you like exploration, puzzles, secrets, the hunt for the bigger better loot plus the occasional scythe wielding, this year it will probably not get much better than this.

    It might not be the prettiest game, but once you get the idea of utilizing the weapon changing gestures, the Centinels will keep you in a firm grip with their positively hectic battles and challenging boss encounters.

    It not only looks great, but gives you high quality content: Loads of modes, a well balanced roster, a complex fighting system, accurate controls.

    On the surface this is "just" another jump&run – one that wouldn't stand a chance against Mario & Co. But add imagery, unusual metaphors and a simple but very moving story you'll get a fairy tale that reminds me of ICO in its best moments.

    A very good expansion pack with a strong comeback of religion and a very entertaining steampunk scenario.

    This is a very good board game conversion. Unfortunately the AI makes stupid mistakes on the highest setting. But then you can always challenge players online.

    Nintendo rediscovers fun for the core gamer: New Super Mario Bros. U is hardly surprising, but delivers quite a challenge with its classic jump & run roots.

    The characters are lovable and the soundtrack is simply phenomenal. Even with bugs and errors not to be found in the console versions you can’t help but fall in love when Tim Schafer pays homage to the gods of heavy metal.

    Survival, building, exploration and the best building block sandbox since the invention of LEGO. Minecraft didn’t lose any of its fascination on the PS3.

    Tequila Works show how to inject fresh ideas into a theme as worn-out as the zombie apocalypse. The mixture of puzzles and challenging fights works extraordinarily well to make Deadlight one of the most atmospheric XBLA games of the year.

    This is the well rounded Pokémon adventure I was longing for. An absolutely worthy gift for the 15th birthday of the series.

    If you like your old-school RPG with a big helping of classic dungeons, cartography and party-management than look no further. Under the colorful surface is an experience that is more demanding than anything that Legend of Grimrock can throw at you.

    The story is the usual weak point while the visuals are as outdated as ever. But that shouldn’t keep you from playing this gem.

    Lone Survivor is a unique and very intense horror trip into the human psyche.

    On every corner you’ll find a new secret or a sparkling metal ornament waiting to be investigated. It is short and offers hardly anything new compared to the predecessor. But is still is very unique – which you can’t say about too many mobile games which mainly consist of match-3 or endless-runner-clones.

    A great ending of the bizarre science fiction adventure with a plethora of funny ideas and loads of challenging puzzles.

    A very big very little adventure with lightning fast quests, lovable characters and loads of references to roleplaying games.

    The Arrival pushed me to the edge of sanity. With its clever combination of unsettling pictures and disturbing sounds this is one of the most intense horror experiences available today.

    There’s no other sports game that comes even close to the drama and direction the revamped career is offering. Plus you’ll get a plethora of on- and offline modes. But when it comes to core mechanics the differences to last years’ version are only subtle.

    An improvement over its predecessor in every way. The intriguing story could be told in a more captivating style though.

    This is what a nice clean conversion should look like. Visually it is not as crisp as its Xbox One counterpart, but the core delivers the same high octane mixture of acrobatic wallruns and mech-action.

    If Dear Esther is a dark audiobook, Proteus is an interactive painting. Small things combine to build a living world.

    Evolution was bigger and better in every aspect. But still this is a competent and challenging arcade game that keeps you glued to your pad.
