    Operation Raccoon City failed! Fans of Resident Evil will be just as disappointed as anyone hoping for a Left 4 Dead challenger. It is a disgrace for the franchise.

    It could have been a modern version of Hothouse Creations’ Gangsters 2 mixed with XCOM. But what you get is rather superficial in every aspect. The turn based battles suffer from an inconsequent and sometimes broken cover system, while the business aspects don’t offer any challenge at all.

    If you thought that on Nintendo’s handheld you’ll get a decent funracer that shows the quality of its’ 360 or PS3 siblings, go look somewhere else.

    Simple action, a boring story: This tie-in to the TV show is mostly irrelevant, although the approach sometimes is interesting. But even without bugs and with better visuals Defiance would have problems in giving other online action games a run for their money.

    How to fall asleep – that would be a more suitable title. Or: Uncle Kovac’s island hopping for stressed out zombie tourists… You will stumble over the occasional good idea. But good execution should mean more to development than another way to dismember the undead.

    At its content core, this a beautiful conversion of a very polarizing game. But with more technical problems than expected for the first time this game also feels very old.

    It could have been an alternative to Mario Kart. But without online play and balancing issues this one decent fun racer becomes a frustrating racer.

    The battle system is catastrophic. Otherwise the 4X-system works. Which makes the ugly and confusing military confrontations even more annoying.

    While the team deserves praise for the unusual scenario and the equally weird name, the game itself is not as different as it wants to make you believe.
    • 66 Metascore

    The visuals are clearly better than in the disastrous 3DS version but still this racer is far away from taking the pole position. Poor AI, an inconsistent penalty system and the reduced content are disappointing.

    Rare, what happened to you. Once you brought us gems like GoldenEye, Conker or Donkey Kong Country. And now? Now you bring us… This…
    • 42 Metascore

    This may look like a playable anime, but the mechanics are miles away from Ni no Kuni or Tales of Graces . Character, quest and leveldesign are uninspired, the battles are primitive and the plot… Well, it has half naked women…

    Playing this digging puzzler made me almost fall asleep. But as soon as you get a few players to help you, you’ll uncover some fun buried under all that rubble.

    Despite nice visuals Defenders of Ardania has no chance of competing with games like Defense Grid, Sol Survivor or Anomaly. The balancing is below par, you hardly need any tactics and the interface is just poor.

    In theory Mugen Souls offers everything fans of tactical adventures crave for. But in the end the humor seems too forced, the tactics are as superficial as the story.
    • 58 Metascore

    It is hard to associate this dungeon crawler with the once fearsome name it carries. This is a bland hack&slay with little variation and even less horror.
    • 60 Metascore

    If you ignore the slight framerate problems, this is the first impressive showing of the visual capabilities, an interesting taste of what is to expect in the new generation. Unfortunately the mechanics suffer – up to the point where the game gets plain boring.

    There are zombies? Really? I don’t care. I’d rather die than to stay on the beautiful island Panai where all I can do is participate in a boring fight for survival, filled with collectable overkill and horrible quest design.

    Soccer management meets The Movies – while the concept seems intriguing, the execution isn’t. The mechanics are superficial and for every aspect the game introduces there is another game that does it better, the mix just doesn’t add up.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 45 Critic Score
    The story is boring, the action not fast-paced enough. And in the end even the good ideas like the boss fights, the upgrades and the nonlinear dimension structure are all in vain.
    • 39 Metascore
    • 45 Critic Score
    It could have been a modern Godzilla Destroy All Monsters Melee. But in this form Pacific Rim is just a conceptually interesting but boring fighting game with big robots and gutsy in-app-purchases.
    • 38 Metascore
    • 45 Critic Score
    In theory this could be an entertaining coop brawler. But it lacks in technical quality, variety and esprit. “Kowabunga” alone doesn’t cut it.
    • 66 Metascore

    Ugly, generic, boring: Even the cool mech builder can salvage this dud.

    The hack&slay formula is simple. But Blood Knights doesn’t deliver. That this game and Venetica come from the same dev team is hard to believe.
    • 38 Metascore

    What chaos! This is by far the weirdest jump-and-run I have played in a while. Unfortunately it is not as fascinating as it sounds, since the novelty factor soon becomes stale and uninspired.
    • 62 Metascore

    The concept is interesting, the execution is frustrating. The journey through the pixelated limbo for videogame heroes sparks your curiosity, but what remains is a lukewarm collection of quiz- and minigames.

    For some games the transition from mobile devices to the PC works well. Here this is not the case.

    The controls and visuals are okay, the rest plainly isn’t.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 45 Critic Score
    While it shows some interesting ideas and cute visuals that are somewhat reminiscent of the Sensible Soccer games, you don’t have enough tactical options at your disposal and in the end it seems like a tedious grind – even when you are successful.

    What happened to Digital Extremes? This bland shooter with Kirk and Spock looks and plays unfinished, even though some design ideas look promising. The visuals remind me of the first 360 games, the reptilian opponents’ AI is way below standards and sometimes the not much better partner AI puts me into dire straits.
