    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.

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

    If you like old-school adventures with a modern twist and a lot of humor, stop right here. This book will keep you busy.

    Interesting mix of hack&slay and tower defense, that shines in coop, but falls short in terms of towers and traps. Good clean fun, though.

    With little more than 5 hours playtime Revengeance is rather short. But I prefer a short but intense experience to a boring one that last 50+ hours. The story is surprisingly deep, the action is fast and furious.

    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.

    Just Dance is Just Dance is Just Dance. Ubisoft didn’t change the formula, took a little bit off here, added a little there and focused more on community. The DLC-incompatibility is a needless nuisance.

    Even with annoying design decisions like sacrificing atmosphere and deeper morale questions for the sake of arcade feeling this is a very interesting take on survival action. It manages to entertain you for about five hours and also serves as an appetizer for everybody looking forward to Naughty Dog's The Last of Us.

    Specialization of your own species, expanding your territory and fighting for victory points: This is an entertaining and true to original conversion of the board game.

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

    Velocity is a small but nice shooter-puzzle-mix with a comforting retro atmosphere.

    Despite some heavy trial-and-error and jagged edges, White Night combines mansion horror like Resident Evil with an intriguing black and white art design.

    Only on the console you'll get basic explanations as well as comfortable crafting without having to read through millions of forum pages. But the pad-explored worlds are limited and not infinite like on the PC with the result of you losing a sense of freedom. It is still fascinating, though.

    This is a lot of fun! Like Words With Friends the back and forth of challenges is quite entertaining.

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

    Whoever wants to dive deep into the Dark Ages will find a complex strategic simulation.

    As long as you find capable team players this is a fun romp, while with the wrong “mates” it becomes a tedious mess. That aside it lacks a little refinement here and there and mission variety – nothing critical though.

    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.

    The narrative mix of historical facts and fictitious involvement of the main characters is more believable than ever. The new engine has its flaws but paints beautiful vistas while presenting more detailed characters than its predecessors. But even though this is a package loaded with content, it is far from perfect and lacks connection between all the interesting ideas.

    It is a very entertaining platformer but it's missing the genius of a Super Mario Galaxy or the sheer craziness of a Rayman: Origins. But what's there is definitely enough for a spot in the hall of fame of the best revivals.

    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.

    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.

    Small engines, big fun: Once you started it is hard to put the Vita down. Head-to-head online duels are sorely missed, though.

    It is not an epic strategy game like Dune but this little gem offers something for almost everybody: Beginners will not be overburdened while experienced players will get a challenge with the unusual mechanics and veterans can ramp up the difficulty level to get their money's worth.

    Entertaining platformer that didn’t lose any of its touch on the PS4.

    I like Resident Evil. Still. And as a fan of the GameCube remake I enjoy the up-to-date presentation with 16:9 ratio and 5.1 surround sound. Nonetheless, one of the godfathers of survival horrors lost a little of its fascination over the years. It still is better and scarier entertainment than Resident Evil 6.

    Black Pants didn't only work on creative physics puzzles, but also implemented a well executed platformer. It's a little short though.

    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.

    Kratos still delivers. But after all those years and especially the grand experience that was God of War 3 you slowly get the feeling that you’ve seen it all.

    Under the goo-goo eyes and the rather clumsily animated characters hides a challenging old school role-playing experience that punishes every little mistake you might make in your battle strategy. But more importantly: The magic of an era long forgotten is still there.
