    GRID 2 doesn’t insist on tuning, there is no setup hassle – just driving fun with a great sense of speed. Unfortunately some problems remain untouched, among them the very aggressive AI.

    This is like iRacing for PS4. I rarely had that much fun and tense position battles within competitive online racing on a console. The driving physics are great and the fairness system executed nicely. Unfortunately it falls a little short on the content side as well as for soloists.

    It is not just loaded with content, but puts one of the interesting eras of Sports Entertainment into the spotlight. It has its flaws, especially when it comes to the engine, but nonetheless as an old school wrestling aficionado I haven't had this much fun with a WWE game in years.

    This is by far the most ambitious and thought through musou game that Omega Force has produced yet. While staying true to the basic formula the action-roleplaying elements as well as the true-to-the-source art design make this an engrossing experience.

    A good soccer game with a cinematic career mode and a lot of enhancements on the pitch. Unfortunately the change to Dice’s Frostbite engine doesn’t pay off yet compared to last years’ Ignite.

    It still is a charming mix of Jump’N’Run and editor. But while Sumo Digital managed to enhance the latter, the light footed magical approach to the Story of the first got lost – obviously that was one of Media Molecule's specialties.

    The bombs splatter better than ever, the paint is flowing freely, the overhauled campaign seems more open and better arranged than on the console.

    This is as dry as it gets. It makes a game out of some peoples’ jobs. And in all its minimalistic glory it is a lot of fun. But conceptually it is not as far as it may seem in the beginning from the author’s earlier works like SpecChem or Infinifactory.

    It is fast. It is unforgiving. But it always stays fair. What starts as a fairly simple variation of rhythm games soon becomes a hypnotic struggle to stay in the zone that will keep you motivated and frustrated at the same time.

    This is a gripping tactical thriller. Some AI behavior destroys the illusion occasionally, while the mission design is not varied enough. But nonetheless I enjoyed the challenges presented by the unofficial sequel to Syndicate top to bottom.

    The focal points this year were the engine change from Ingnite to Frostbite as well as the Longshot story inclusion. Espacially the latter can make sure that this years’ football king is actually more than just a full-priced visual update.

    When it comes to art design, the architecture and fashion in Dishonored are among the best I have seen in recent years. The stealth-action starts promisingly but you become too powerful too soon. Nonetheless, this is a thoroughly entertaining game.

    Visually simply the best Killzone yet and mechanically more varied then before, Guerilla Games delivers an entertaining shooter for the PS4 launch. Unfortunately the AI didn’t yet reach the next generation.

    This is the game I wanted to have a few years ago: The party dynamics of Rock Band combined with the real guitar playing of Rocksmith. The recognition technique is simply flawless.

    After the last episode I was worried that Telltale would take the script in the wrong direction. Well, not anymore. Humor, absurd situations, great directing – it all is back. Now the only thing Telltale needs to do, is bring a little more game back into the cinematic experience.

    While the enhanced battle system is definitely a big step forward, a lot of other elements including the script don’t click as effectively as they did in “The Stick of Truth”. But Coon, Call Girl and Toolshed can be proud to be a part of the “Second best South Park game of all time”.

    Considering last years’ improvements this years’ focus on the ground game feels underwhelming – but definitely delivers a welcome layer of new choices at the players’ disposal. The new commentary moves it into regions held by NBA2K up to now, but even though there are some improvements in the franchise, the mode selection in general isn’t that much different than in Madden NFL 16.

    If you like music games, get it. If you like the fantastic musical arrangements of the Final Fantasy series, get it. Even with slight downers like inconsistent challenge levels this is one little rhythm gem.

    Transformed is one of the best fun-racers in recent months and a classy alternative to Mario Kart, whose dominance is crumbling away. Without the frame-rate problems during split-screen races the speeding hedgehog might even have outpaced the racing plumber. Nonetheless with GamePad support and exclusive modes the Wii U version snatches the pole position.

    The brilliantly designed "The Tales of the Arabian Nights" alone is worth the entrance to this arcade – even tough the visuals can't compete with the likes of Zen Pinball or Pinball FX 2.

    Once more Zuma's Revenge delivers classic ballshooting puzzle action you came to know and love since Puzz Loop.

    More than just a definitive edition, this revamped vision of an undervalued hack&slay series mixes everything together that you loved about Van Helsing and Katarina and puts a fresh spin on it. Nice!

    In theory, this is the climax of the 2D fighting that Arc System Works executed so flawlessly over the years: More fighters than ever in the series, refined mechanics and beautiful visuals. But be aware that beginners will hardly understand anything within the visual novel style story, while even veterans mourn the decision not to include English voiceover for the seemingly final chapter.

    Fast RMX is a widely enhanced reissue of the currently fastest racing game, sporting 30 tracks, an unbelievable speed and challenging course design. But with some modes missing from the Wii U original the motivation takes a downturn here and then.

    VanillaWare did it again. Their signature visual style is more beautiful than ever and the mixture of side-scrolling brawler, item hunt and character development is as motivating as anything . If you compare this to Odin Sphere or Muramasa though, the story telling falls rather short, while the number of dungeons is very limited.

    A lot has happened for puzzle platforming since A boy and his Blob first emerged six years ago. But the charming visuals, the laid back, but still challenging play style and the sheer beauty that is the friendship between the two protagonists still make this an exceptional game.

    On the 360 Geralt shows all the strengths that made his voyage such a gem on the PC, but albeit all the additional content didn't lose all the weaknesses. On top of that the visuals show unexpected blemishes.

    Why the loot and upgrade system, Housemarque? At its core Alienation is a glorious twinstick shooter with interesting classes, beautiful visuals, top notch pacing and a challenging coop mode. It didn’t need the Diablo-ish influences that pull me right out of the flow.

    This side of Sanctuary it doesn’t get much better than this. Victor Vran blurs the lines between hack & slash and action adventure, delivering a very unique experience. Unfortunately it suffers from a generic art design and the preset character development.

    This is a labor of love. Huge freedom combined with challenging turn-based tactics make this a great addition to the consoles’ role-playing library.
