    Even though the capabilities of the new system are underutilized, this is still a well executed physics puzzler that relies too often on trial & error.

    If you like your adventure loaded with puzzles, this might not be your cup of tea. But if you like unusual characters and stories, you should join Horatio and Crispin on their pixelated retro-journey.

    Dead Space 3 is a roller coaster ride. In Space you’ll find interesting missions, a nightmarish atmosphere and a brilliant sound design. But as soon as you land on the ice planet, not only do the temperatures drop, but also the motivation. The further you progress the more irrelevant and run-of-the-mill the game design gets.

    Even though the sisters show some technical shortcomings compared to the PC counterpart, this still is a charming jump & run.

    In the beginning State of Decay is a remarkably ugly and trashy zombie bashing. But the more you dive into the fight for survival with its base and resource management, the open dynamic world gets more and more attractive – despite the AI problems.

    When you look at the core mechanics, especially the shooting, Capsized could be more refined but nonetheless this is a charming oldschool action platformer with an extraordinary art design.

    Good clean turn based RPG fun with a celebrity cast that transcends franchises and genres.

    While the concept with its modern twist on the classic shmup works on the iPad as well as on any other system, technically the conversion is not as convincing.
    • 50 Metascore
    • 78 Critic Score
    A well-executed modern remake of an Amiga classic.

    The mobile killzone is not as refined as its stationary brethren. But it plays and looks well enough to make me start another one of its shortened missions.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 78 Critic Score
    The turn based movement is flanked by a trading card element, which makes the hunt for new cards quite motivating. But be aware that the campaign is rather short and the multiplayer mode restricted.

    Without a doubt this is the most complete Formula One package from Codemasters yet. But nonetheless it feels like the team in Birmingham doesn’t do anything more than what is absolutely necessary to justify a new game.

    This surreal trip delivers an interesting rhythm of puzzles and platforming.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 78 Critic Score
    An interesting mix of retro graphics, medieval battles and fortress builder.

    When it comes to artdesign, setting and music this is the best Fighting Fantasy you can get for your tablet. The storytelling is not as good though.

    It is a pity that you cannot fight together with others players against the zombie hordes. Because behind the sometimes ugly façade hides an interesting living (or dead) world in which you truly have to fight to survive.

    The good impressions from the beta prove true: World of Warplanes celebrates arcade dogfights full of intensive arcade action. With a little more depth and a more detailed damage system this could be a sure hit.

    It is astonishing how many puzzles you can squeeze into a little area. Even though Clarc relies on well known mechanics they are kept together by a charming story.

    The conversion for the PlayStation 4 is not perfect, but slight technical issues (e.g. framerate) hardly take anything away from this short, but entertaining arcade snack.

    Solid golf entertainment for big and small players, for beginners and intermediates alike.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 78 Critic Score
    This is a thoroughly entertaining dynamic and enormously complex politics simulation on an interplanetary level. Unfortunately the turn based battles feel tacked on and war eventually is too powerful.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 77 Critic Score
    If you like your horror spiced up with action, this is for you. But if you're looking for suspense and mystery you should look for different tale.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 77 Critic Score
    The presentation is definitely not the strong point, but Unit 13 offers well designed infiltration missions and a very entertaining coop mode.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 77 Critic Score
    If you like your races rough and tough and are not afraid to put scratches and dents onto the paint, this one is definitely for you. But be aware that this showdown is some sort of recycling machine where DiRt 3 players will recognize Gymkhana and the majority of the locations.

    This is a huge Lego adventure with quite a few changes and improvements. But amidst all this gain it lost some of the charm.

    German developers Yager put the horror of war on the screen – brutal, ruthless and depressing at times. In its' quiet moments it generates a fantastic atmosphere set in the Dubai desert. But this is still a shooter and regarding action and especially AI it falls short.

    A slick interface allows you to easily govern an entire empire and to direct its people like a crafty strategist would move chess pieces. The game misses tactical and diplomatic depth, but this is what an excellent spreadsheet program might look like!
    • 83 Metascore
    • 77 Critic Score
    Its over-the-top presentation as well as the sardonic smirk after dozens of enemies died in a well-constructed labyrinth of traps make most tower defense contenders look bland. However while an update of maps, tracks, weapons and game modes is a welcome addition to the original, the sequel offers too little to be considered a full-fledged successor.

    On Vita Puddle is as much a thrill as it is on consoles, featuring an abundance of clever twists around gooey liquids. Some stages you might solve in an instant, others may take a number of attempts – while unfortunately you will recognize many traps only when it's too late.

    The experience on the track is more refined and better than ever. But why am I restricted in a lot of areas, e.g. game modes? Why can't I just take Michael Schumacher and go for the eighth championships? If you don't need the up-to-date license you might as well go back for last years' version.
