    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.

    Yes, it is bigger than the original Toukiden. And it doesn’t look to shabby on the PS4. But one major problem remains: The core is nothing but an uninspired Monster Hunter clone.

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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    The artdesign is inspired, but unfortunately you can’t say the same for the core mechanics.

    In theory this could be an entertaining coop brawler. But it lacks in technical quality, variety and esprit. “Kowabunga” alone doesn’t cut it.

    Good idea, bad delivery. Unfortunately the very interesting story premise is not enough to fuel this pixel platformer.

    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.

    For patient fireworks aficionados a neat waste of time. It lacks challenge and functionality though.

    There is no open world, there are no adventures. Instead this mobile version falls back on a rather bland variation of Mario Party.

    A mediocre tale in an “empty” game. There are far better visual novels out there.
    • 55 Metascore

    The art direction is worth mentioning but not worth the entrance fee since the mechanics of this vertical shoot-em-up are as basic as anything.

    It is short, it is uninspired, it is non-credible: The once entertaining franchise doesn’t deserve this boring episode.

    It might look like its big brethren, but this is an uninspired light version of everything that made the franchise 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.

    Not only does it feel unfinished, even with what is there you encounter a lot of issues.

    It's a pity that Capcom constricts the new Steel Battalion with Kinect. Without the motion controls this could have been an entertaining mech shooter.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 42 Critic Score
    It's hard to find reasons to play this standalone add-on. It is outdated, visually not really appealing, offers no challenge and minimal multiplayer options.

    For doctors it actually might work as a distraction in the form of playful training exercises. But as a game it is not very entertaining.

    There are quite a few positive aspects: the driving physics feel authentic, the real-time deformation of the surroundings is impressive too. But Spintires lacks depth, be it more varied missions or even the smallest economy system. This is more a tech demo than a game.

    This is absolutely no competition for Uncharted. The fights are boring and bugs ruin the remaining fun. Which is a pity, because the vistas and solid puzzles give a glimpse of what this game could have been.

    The clue is in the name… Everything is light about it. The stealth mechanics, the difficulty level, the visuals, everything.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 41 Critic Score
    It has its moments. But there are too few and they are not spectacular enough. The one-dimensional action seems even more inappropriate on the big screen. It just is not interesting.

    Eleusis is an atmospheric, but mechanically very superficial adventure.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 41 Critic Score
    “Reborn” – sounds like a new beginning, doesn’t it? But it isn’t. This is little more than a superficial sequel that at its core is less satisfying than its predecessor.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 41 Critic Score
    All the interesting ideas get lost in a clutter of ugly backdrops, cumbersome controls and meaningless fights against never changing foes.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 41 Critic Score
    The idea is good, but the execution suffers from half-heartedness on all fronts.
