    The soundtrack is great. The conceptual mix of rhythm game puzzler and dungeon crawler is ingenious. Games like this show that the indie scene is still dancing to a different beat.

    Song of the Deep is as beautiful as it is challenging, as picturesque as it is magical. This labyrinth exploration gets better with every hour.

    This is the total package for all fans of the vocaloid popstar. Over 220 songs, hundreds of costumes, haircuts and accessories as well as the proven and enhanced rhythm game mechanics make this a blast to play – unless you despise J-pop. In that case you should run. Fast.

    This is what remaster should look like. Mechanically it feels slightly outdated, but nonetheless Lancer and Chainsaw Bayonet keep your adrenaline pumping – even without splitscreen co-op.

    I was very skeptical, but after finishing the first episode I have to give kudos to Telltale. They captured the spirit of the saga in a very convincing manner. The mix of classic point&click virtues and more recent elements like realtime action and quicktime events reminds me of Heavy Rain.

    At first glance the changes are as little and subtle as in the previous years. But they have big impact delivering the most dynamic Madden on current systems yet. And Draft Champions alone is almost worth the admission.

    Limbo was and still is a thrill ride with an almost perfect assembly of melancholic dark moments as well as challenging and suspenseful platforming sequences.

    In a nutshell, this is the best storytelling game in recent years and a sure hit for gamers who like The Vanishing of Ethan Carter or Gone Home. The magical sadness reminds you of Ray Bradbury, the morbid flair of Tim Burton.

    Music based Tetris variation with its dynamically changing playing field is as good on consoles as it was on PC. A beautiful enhancement of a modern rhythm game classic.

    Unless you don’t like puzzle games, I can’t give you any good reason to stay away from this mash-up of two classics. Yes, the story in campaign mode is basically non-existent, while the art design might be too colorful for some. But you get plenty of modes, on- and offline, solo and versus, making Puyo Puyo Tetris a prime example for “come on, just one more round”-games.

    Forget the tacked on VR (dis-)experience. It is just nuances that seperates Tekken 7 from other beat-em-up heavyweights that seem to be released basically simultaneously . If you can look past a few visual shortcomings and a sometimes weird dramatization you’ll be rewarded with one of the deepest combo-filled fighters out there that will give Injustice’s superheroes a run for their money.

    Tense, dynamic, relentless. Even though the campaigns lack a solid narrative this is a refreshingly different real time tactic game that delivers adrenaline by the bucket.

    While Injustice 2 and Tekken 7 challenge each other for the title of modern beat-em-up king, Arc System Works focuses on what they can do best: Deliver a retro-infused slugfest with top notch balancing and one of the most intriguing audiovisual designs in a fighting game yet.

    Good things come to those who wait. After three years filled with content and with the added Shadow Lords mode Killer Instinct evolved from an ugly duckling that hardly didn’t offer any content to a potential prospect for the beat-em-up throne.

    It’s a pity that the Definitive Edition falls short to the PC in terms of certain texture details. But other than that even two years after its premiere the rejuvenated Dante and his brother show that they still got it.

    In Switch’s launch lineup, this is the biggest surprise. A fascinating rhythm game that takes advantage of the touchscreen, sports a wide ranged soundtrack of almost 120 songs and an interesting art design.

    The dynamic fights could have been more challenging but the bosses deliver and in the grand scheme the fighting is just a small part of the complex Darksiders mosaic. If you like exploration, puzzles, secrets, the hunt for the bigger better loot plus the occasional scythe wielding, this year it will probably not get much better than this.

But nonetheless this is a very entertaining and thanks to the competent AI challenging modern interpretation squad based realtime strategic infiltration à la Commandos.
