    This is refreshingly different from run of the mill action like Call of Duty. Even after the engine update it isn’t pretty, but what it lacks in beauty it makes up for with striking realism and a tense atmosphere.

    While the concept shines, the execution sometimes is not as elaborated. Nonetheless I left this grey and pixelated world in good spirit.

    Steam World Dig reminds me of good old Amiga days: It is a simple, but entertaining, platformer.

    The unusual scenario with its tongue-in-cheek humor manages to camouflage some of the strategic shortcomings in the realtime battles. And so does the clever combination of the political, strategic and tactical elements in Rivellon.

    In its best moments, Blacklist is a welcome return to the roots of the series. On top it gives you more options on how to solve the missions, from Rambo to lightning fast killer to ghost. Unfortunately Sam is too powerful – at the expense of atmosphere and suspense.

    If you are (like me) a fan of the Genesis original this is more than a trip down memory lane. This is a carefully modernized old school platform adventure with a lot of personality. But don’t expect anything out of the ordinary.

    This is as surreal as stylish, as uncompromising as relentless, as odd as any other game from Suda 51. But is also more mainstream than ever before, which is admirable.

    While the core mechanics hardly make any progress, in terms of storytelling Origins is definitely worthy of concluding the Arkham trilogy in thrilling fashion.

    You might miss optimized configuration options, but otherwise you get the complete package of this soulful action-adventure.

    A clean port of a solid brawler with an interesting, albeit short story campaign. If you were battling Superman on another system already there is not much here to convince you of purchasing it again, though.

    After it became a sleeper hit in Nintendo's eShop for the 3DS, this entertaining platformer found a new home on the PC.

    Even with the support of potent hardware, some of the technical problems remain. But nonetheless this is a fast paced action game that you don’t see too often on the PC – and it is surprisingly well implemented in the Metal Gear universe.

    At first it looks like a silly experiment, but once you sink your tentacles into the game, you’ll encounter challenging and manic arcade fun.

    The direction is so intense that you get lost in this dark New York fairy tale with its surreal characters, excellent dialogue and morbid thriller flair. For the long wait it is rather short though.

    While the concept feels as fresh as anything and thanks to Unreal technology Albion looks better than ever, you’ll notice the age of the source material. Nonetheless it is a nice stroll down memory lane.

    Despite HD treatment you’ll realize how old the originals are. But as ugly as it might be on the outside as outright beautiful is the content that is hiding behind the mask.

    It plays like a heavily modernized Missile Command. But be aware. That this ain’t a fire-and-forget orgy for finger artists but a challenging game where you have to make decisions and try to find a balance between nuclear defensive and offensive measures.

    Clever: With Go, Square Enix doesn’t try to emulate the cinematic action from PC or console, but instead worked out a clever design for touch controls that captures the spirit of Agent 47.

    Not as good as the fourth part, but aficionados of cartography dungeon crawlers will without a doubt be drawn into the caves of this remake.

    The game with the Lady and the giant sword may start slow, but the political background as well as the relationship of the main characters drag you into this beautifully designed world with its well executed tactical role playing.

    If you love games like Torchlight and Diablo there is surely something here that will keep you going, be it more loot than you can carry, more monsters than you can kill or more intelligent jokes and easter eggs that you will recognize. Unfortunately balancing hardware specs and the story proves costly.

    All in all, it's a decent port of a great game that hasn't lost anything in it's translation to the PC.

    This is a classic. And like its PC brother it still is a challenging straight forward top-down two-stick shooter that I can’t get enough of.

    Clever shooter-puzzle-mix with brain bending teleportation and interesting new platforming aspects.

    On the pitch this is soccer at its finest, even though the defense seems to be weakened. But off the pitch you get a patchwork of more or less untouched game modes, half-hearted emotions and inconsistent atmosphere that favors the English Premier League.

    This is a well planned and content rich but also very conservative tower defense.
    • 81 Metascore

    This is not about horror. This is not about terror. This is about exploration and experiencing one of the most beautiful worlds I have seen in a game so far. Period. Unfortunately you feel too safe and even though the visuals are exceptional the gameplay is rather conventional.

    Another well conceived and executed indie platform puzzler with improved controls on Wii U.

    Don't be fooled: If you pit Kingdoms of Amalur against Skyrim, Reckoning will be pulverized – Bethesda's roleplaying epic is superior in every aspect. But as a hack-and-slay in an expansive world with entertaining fights and more loot that you can carry Amalur stands out. It is exactly what I've been waiting for since the good old days of Champions of Norrath or Dungeons & Dragons Heroes – even though the inventory system lacks usability.

    This new interpretation of old-school brawling action works well and doesn't rely just on its sheer amount of blood on the screen or the well executed comic-design.
