    The art design is timeless, the conventional controls are spot on and the action is as challenging as ever. But the implementation of vita-exclusive control features rather stalls the fight dynamics.

    This game still is very unique – at least stylistically. And on the PC you get the better visuals, the better controls and overall more value for your money in this intersting MetroidVania variation.

    The puzzle platformer is well suited for the touchscreen. The controls are almost as intuitive as with the Wiimote and the use of air currents is still entertaining.

    This charming adventure still is fascinating – although the fun gets spoiled by framerate problems and the undemanding action.

    Focuses more on action and less on tactical advancement. Additionally the campaign is rarely a challenge. If you're into multiplayer (regardless if cooperative or versus) the Ghosts might be worth a closer look though. But if you're hoping to get a continuation of the virtues of Advanced Warfighter, you will be disappointed.

    My hope to witness the reincarnation of a "small" Bayonetta was shattered fast. But nonetheless I haven't had this much fun with a brawler since the appearance of the Platinum witch - albeit it is a rather short time overall you can spend with the sweets sucking and chainsaw wielding cheerleader.

    This Ghost Recon focuses more on action and less on tactical advancement. Additionally the campaign is rarely a challenge. If you're hoping to get a continuation of the virtues of Advanced Warfighter, you will be disappointed. Technically the PC-version is way ahead of its' console counterparts, but the multiplayer doesn't offer quite as much.

    The backdrops are beautifully drawn, the story evolving around Geron and his dark visions is captivating. The puzzles will get quite difficult in later stages, though. But even the slight technical problems shouldn't keep you from this adventure trip thru Aventuria.

    Slightly disappointing adventure sequel which doesn't reach the standards set by part 1, but is saved by the bizarre humour.

    If you like your 2D-beat-em-up with a big helping of retro pixel charm, then Darkstalkers Resurrection is for you, even though you don’t get the complete package, but just the highlights in the form of Night Warriors and Darkstalkers 3.

    This is arcade racing in its purest form: Controls and rules are as simple as anything. But still you need finesse to get around the bends and turns in style. Unfortunately it is rather short.

    The presentation might not be spectacular, but you’ll get loads of upgradable units, buildings and an extensive dynamic campaign. Eador might not be as intuitive as Might & Magic Heroes, but it is just as difficult to get away from it.

    Driving physics are as intuitive as they are challenging. Opponents do a good job of advancing through thick traffic, although they do tend to cause unfortunate accidents.

    The turn based mayhem is classic Worms entertainment as you know it for almost 18 years. Add to that some clan functions and you have a well rounded package.

    If you’ve spent time with Final Fantasy 14 a few years back, you will not recognize the reborn Eorzea. Everything seems better connected, better thought through and better executed.

    When it comes to content, this is a complete package. The collision physics are improved, the running game is enhanced. But overall there is little progress and an AI that seems more faulty than in the last years. Let’s hope that the focus was put on the versions for PS4 and Xbox One. Otherwise this could be a very short anniversary party.

    Marlow Briggs is not a new experience nor is it original in any way. But the mix of games like Shadowman, Soul Reaver and God of War is well-composed and gives you a decent amount of fun for a reasonable price.

    Phoenix Wright as you know it: Surreal characters, great dialogue, interesting cases and top notch anime artdesign.

    You’ll get a mixture of everything that people want from a new Assassin’s Creed. But all the known challenge-free mechanics fail to impress me like they did in older games of the franchise, although I like the rediscovered focus on stealth – as semi-automatic as it may be while the few new ones are not strong enough to carry the burden. There is no doubt about the excellent visuals though.

    This is exactly what you expect: Loads of super heroes and villains, millions of Lego studs to collect and an all-around entertaining experience without surprises. If Traveller’s Tales knows one thing, it is their Lego formula, to which they stick like glue.

    When it comes to driving physics and the core elements of simulation this is the game to beat. But in terms of content, the dysfunctional AI-revolution and microtransactions right from the start I rather go back to Forza 4 or wait for Gran Turismo 6.

    Up to now the franchise stood for uncompromising arcade fun. But with this iteration there is another element: micro-transactions, in-app-purchases. But whatever you may call it hinders the fun, even though you can get through the game without...

    I hate it when I’m right. But games from Farsight can’t seem to show up without bugs or quirk. For example: Who had the idea to exclude worldwide leader boards?

    It was a good idea to combine Layton and Wright. It could have been better though if both elements were merged more.

    Although the recycling of Lego Lord of the Ring assets is too obvious this still is one of the better brick games in recent years.

    It is an acceptable first step into the UFC octagon by EA. But considering their experience with MMA in the last generation and the quality that the late THQ delivered, you can’t help but be slightly disappointed. For every positive aspect they put into the game, you’ll discover a detail they didn’t touch, a road they didn’t follow through –starting from visuals way down to the core mechanics.

    Puddle entertains as much as it frustrates. Some stages you clear at your first try, others you start 40 times or more. But if you are willing to overcome this adversity you`re rewarded with a fascinating physics-based puzzle adventure.

    If you hated its predecessor you will surely not warm up to this sequel. On the other hand Serah and Noel do a lot better than Lightning and her friends in Final Fantasy XIII. Here's more to do, more to discover, more roleplaying.

    This is a good soccer game! But this is not a spectacular mobile version of FIFA 12, it is rather a variation of FIFA 11. It looks great, it plays more like arcade-soccer and offers less content than its big brother.
