    Characters, puzzles, humor: The Cave bears the distinctive handwriting of its creator Ron Gilbert. But while this creative beauty was awakened after a 20-year-long slumber, it shows some facets that are not as pretty. The puzzles could be more elaborate, the level design more varied and the engine more fluent.

    Judgment is a step back for the series, even though the fight against the Locust is still enjoyable. But the most fun you’ll find in multiplayer: The campaign gains momentum in co-op and the versus modes will keep you glued to the pad for hours.

    In terms of content this is definitely the ultimate Monster Hunter experience. The visuals can’t hide their age, though. The world still is harmonious and confronts you with truly impressive enemies, but a lot of animations and effects date back to the PS2 era. That doesn’t take away anything from the still motivating hunting and gathering that is easier to control than ever before.

    The simple ideas sometimes are the best ones. The team headed by Colin and Sarah Northway presents a simple but astonishingly clever puzzle mix.

    A lot of games tried to copy Minecraft – or at least participate from its' success. But this two-dimensional take on the well known formula is the only game that is able to step out of the shadow of the indie phenomenon that inspired it. It leads you into a unique world full of creative magic and translates well onto consoles thanks to the very good pad controls.

    Challenging, classic, colorful: Luigis Add-On brings a new feeling to the retro-platformer, but frustrates with its inert controls.

    This is a competent sequel to an outstanding RTS game with a compelling multiplayer experience, although problems with AI and path-finding are still evident.

    There is no additional content, no added touch-controls but the magic of this charming role-playing game is still there.

    Some elements like microtransaction feel inept, but most of the time the symbiosis of random battles, turn based tactics and time manipulation works surprisingly well. If you cherish old rpg virtues this is definitely for you.

    It is silly, it is challenging and it is highly motivating. Even with its flaws it is hard to resist Rayman.

    What a rush! The assault on your retinas has to be seen to be believed. If you liked Tempest, you certainly don’t want to miss this.

    With resource management at its core this medieval village-builder is a sure alternative to the likes of Sim City.

    The launcher aside A Realm Reborn is a technically sound port that is not plagued by the PlaySation 3’s initial problems.

    Zenimax had a steep mountain to climb: They had to cater to both the expectations of fans of Offline-Tamriel as well as demands of online-mechanics. And even though the result is far from perfect and seems to lose focus here or there, I don’t regret any of the rather large amount of time I’ve spent with TESO.

    Fract is an awesome audiovisual experience. If you like electronic music, you can dive into an ocean filled with impressive imagination.

    Sometimes this sidescrolling time manipulating action with its charming pixel look is extremely hectic. But all frustration aside the intelligent design keeps you coming back.

    The pixelated retro knight shows off imaginative enemies and excellent level design. Inert controls and some exceptionally finicky bosses are common as well, though.

    The colorful fight between the undead and the armored crops was and still is a nice take on the all too serious military multiplayer shooters out there.

    After SSX this is the second successful reboot for former EA Sports Big franchises: With FIFA 12 as foundation the mechanics in Street feel much more down-to-earth compared to the predecessors without losing their arcade touch. But physics and AI still need improvement.

    Ghost Trick is a clever adventure where you travel into the past of deceased to solve intelligent puzzles in order to investigate your own death – very entertaining.

    Kudos to Grasshopper and Digital Reality: I didn't think that a side scrolling shooter could look this marvelous. This is a well-executed take on bullet hell action with a clever integration of slow motion.

    The basic concept might be a bit outdated by now but it still is as addictive as it is simple. And with the addition of gravity and indirect hits it gains a lot of creativity, although luck plays a bigger part than ever before.

    It may be a little too easy, but nonetheless this is a lot of fun. Rhythm Thief is the best game of its kind since Elite Beat Agents.

    The old fashioned visuals collide with the humongous amount of content and the immense tactical depth.

    The Splatters is an incredibly charming physics lesson that puts equal emphasis on puzzles and skills. Unfortunately it is quite short and lacks variety.

    As an adventure it is not challenging, the puzzle solutions are too obvious - at least once you know where your hero squad is supposed to go. But nonetheless this is a heartwarming declaration of love towards colorful zest for life.

    Watch out Capcom, SNK and Namco: A new challenger has entered the ring. Although you could reduce it to tits and ass at first glance, you'd make a terrible mistake. Skullgirls offers not only outer but also inner values.

    Yes, I think they could have thought of a better name. But then it doesn't really matter, because at its core you'll get a charming homage to a plethora of immortal videogame compositions.

    Do you feel like a helping of Edgar Allan Poe? Do you feel like experiencing a quiet, but complex storytelling? A creative developer demonstrates how much atmospheric force can be put into one pixel.
