    If you like 3D-puzzles like Kula World or Pullblox this is definitely worth a look.

    I was looking forward to meeting Rhys, Vaughn, Fiona and Sasha again – and I wasn’t disappointed, even though in terms of mechanics there has been no progress at all. But when it comes to dialogue, characters, directing and story this is Telltale at its best.

    The launcher aside A Realm Reborn is a technically sound port that is not plagued by the PlaySation 3’s initial problems.

    A decade ago Blizzard ruled the Hack&Slay world with an iron fist but its new expedition into hell is just one among many well-executed action roleplaying games. They rely too much on well known mechanics to set themselves apart from the competition. Is it an experience worth your time? Absolutely - especially if you have some friends to beat up the spawns of hell. But Diablo 3 missed the chance to move the genre into the future.

    Creative Assembly managed to capture the claustrophobic and dark atmosphere of the film classic. Sometimes the totally unpredictable xenomorph will push you over the edge of frustration, but in the end the suspense and tension will win you over again.

    Zenimax had a steep mountain to climb: They had to cater to both the expectations of fans of Offline-Tamriel as well as demands of online-mechanics. And even though the result is far from perfect and seems to lose focus here or there, I don’t regret any of the rather large amount of time I’ve spent with TESO.

    While the fighting mechanics are as deep as easily accessible and the roster is filled to the rim, I just can’t warm up to the visuals. Leaving the sprites behind doesn’t do it for me, since in this version the well-known as well as the new characters can hardly keep up with their colleagues in the Tekken or DoA franchises.

    Like the Trials games, Joe Danger delivered simple but exciting fun. With the sequel you'll get even more goodies and options. But for me the lane changes, unicycles etc. were just a distraction from the neck-braking stunts.

    Fract is an awesome audiovisual experience. If you like electronic music, you can dive into an ocean filled with impressive imagination.

    Behind the dusty retro-facade hides an arduous adventure that calls for brains as much as for sleight of hand.

    The colorful fight between the undead and the armored crops was and still is a nice take on the all too serious military multiplayer shooters out there.

    Ubisoft is definitely on the right path with their newest interpretation of open world action. For a metropolis like Frisco the streets could be more crowded, but the interactions you can actually witness are giving the impression of a breathing living city. That aside the hacking action relies a little too much on too similar patterns within the main missions, although in the last third there are enough pace changes and surprises to keep you going, while the script as well as the characters keep this more light hearted and cheek-in-tongue hacker tale alive.

    A proper sequel to the anime civil war drama. More playable characters, new options within the turn based battles and a flexible skill system offer more variety for mobile strategists.

    So far I haven't seen an adventure where the puzzles were so plausible and seamlessly integrated into the main plot. Unfortunately character design and direction in general are far less perfect.

    A lot of games tried to copy Minecraft – or at least participate from its' success. But this two-dimensional take on the well known formula is the only game that is able to step out of the shadow of the indie phenomenon that inspired it. It leads you into a unique world full of creative magic.

    Of course I would like to talk about a sequel. But nonetheless six years after the original again I had a lot of fun with War and his improved visuals within the timeless comic design. Unfortunately some mechanical flaws remain untouched.

    The constant change between fiction and reality, the Darkness' dirty illusions and Jackie's inevitable descent into madness make this shooter very special. But you have to ignore the AI problems and the barely average action mechanics for which Digital Extremes is well known.

    With resource management at its core this medieval village-builder is a sure alternative to the likes of Sim City.

    Even though EA passed (again) on the chance to make this franchise a serious contender for Team Fortress 2 by making the player too dependent on luck when it comes to getting new content out of the in-game sticker packs this is crazy good action with a lot of humor.

    You can play Birds of Steel as a simple arcade shooter. But it rises up to all its glory as a simulation – especially if you have a decent amount of flight hardware. The physics system is convincing, the mode selection will keep you busy for months – especially online. But aside from the detailed planes the presentation is rather average and bugs within the AI system stall the fun a little.

    Over 60 songs over a wide area of genres, a challenging control scheme and a steep learning curve make this an interesting alternative to Hatsune Miku or Voez.

    Yes, this is one of the quirkiest tactic RPGs out there. And in terms of content it is outshined by its predecessors. But even after 12 years Disgaea packs a punch and keeps you busy for hours, days and weeks.

    A refreshingly simple, yet fitting art design and a great mixture of components make this a turn based dungeon crawler like no other. Unfortunately your success depends a little too much on luck and it shows a tendency for grind.

    If you got a weak spot for goofy slapstick comedy, you are in for a treat! A smooth interface complements the old-school approach, although puzzles should have been more of a challenge.

    While the campaign is rather bland in comparison to older Halos, the multiplayer shines brighter than ever and promises more fun than ever before – if you can live with the microtransactions.

    New hardware, same old game. But that is not necessarily bad. Story and characters could be more elaborate, but classic turn based tactics drawn in appealing visuals is still as good as it always was.

    The simple ideas sometimes are the best ones. The team headed by Colin and Sarah Northway presents a simple but astonishingly clever puzzle mix.

    This was and still is a very special and charming J-RPG. It might not be as pretty as we remembered, while some of its problems got worse over time. But this still is a captivating gem straight out of Japan’s colorful roleplaying history.

But this two-dimensional take on the well known formula is the only game that is able to step out of the shadow of the indie phenomenon that inspired it. It leads you into a unique world full of creative magic and translates well onto consoles thanks to the very good pad controls.
