    Just like Koei's musou games you’ll either love it or hate. I love it with all its shortcomings.

    Bloody, brutal – but quite cheap and too linear at times. For fans of the art of boss battles this is an entertaining experience. But outside the arenas Dracula can’t motivate like Metroid Prime, Darksiders or Batman, from which it takes quite a few elements.

    This is by far the best rally game by Milestone yet, offering a solid experience with challenging track design. But even though it is vastly improved, visually it still is not up to challenge the likes of DiRT, Gran Turismo 5 or Forza.

    No, Proton Pulse Plus doesn’t manage to dethrone my all-time favorite Breakout-clone Arkanoid. But with its neon design and the chiptune soundtrack it draws you into the roughly 50 stages. Unfortunately the VR experience is rather short, albeit intensive.

    I welcome the slow paced combat which puts soul balancing and character exchange before abilities. The surprisingly deep story also is a breath of fresh air. But not all is well, especially in the engine department.

    Like on PC the star is undoubtedly the cartoony art design with its hand drawn backgrounds and animations that make you feel like watching a mafia show on Adult Swim. The mechanics are as conservative as can be, though.

    Fast, good looking and mean: Strike Vector offers challenging dogfights and extensive modification. But the modes are just standard, while the number of maps simply is too low.

    The controls are top notch, the sickness factor bearable for most of the time and the visuals are among the best you can get on PSVR right now. But the lack of content harms this proof that VR and ego-action indeed is possible.

    Entertaining wave shooter with a nice variety of weapons and a colorful comic-design, but also a steep challenge level.

    A charming surreal puzzler that lacks polishing.

    The tank mayhem is a worthy heir to the arcade classic. Simple at first, complexity is added by upgrades and slight tactical decisions. And furthermore it is a prime example for the usage of VR, when you get totally immersed in the colorful world. Unfortunately the AI is not with the name, while the difficulty spikes due to sheer numbers can become frustrating.

    At its' core this is a great simulation. But aside from the believable analogue swing it is also an uninspired sequel.
    • 78 Metascore

    This is more an add-on than a sequel. It even shares a lot of the strengths and weaknesses of AirLandBattle as well as European Escalation. The addition of naval warfare adds a new, welcome facet, but in the end there is still a lot of room for improvement.

    Expeditions definitely has some strong points like the narrative, the choices or its dynamics. But when it comes to the presentation in general and the battle tactics it is not as strong.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 73 Critic Score
    The fights, the gun battles and all the little tasks are quite entertaining, but they all lack depth and finesse and often feel separated from the main story and its emotional impact. This is a solid but very conventional open world action.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 73 Critic Score
    The brutal combat, the cops and robbers attitude, the explosive narrative are as entertaining as they were two years ago. And although it of course looks better on the new consoles it doesn’t do the hardware justice.
    • 69 Metascore

    Ambitious and in coop quite tense thriller with technical faults as well as AI problems.

    Compared to Van Helsing’s first console adventure this is a step in the right direction. Nonetheless I still don’t understand why Neocore keeps on porting the entertaining, but faulty hack&slays one by one, while they have a Final Cut waiting in the wings.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 73 Critic Score
    An interesting mixture of visual novel and tactical roleplaying game with a strong focus on the narrative.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 73 Critic Score
    A charming, wacky 2D adventure that keeps you motivated even though the tasks you’ll encounter could be more varied.
    • 69 Metascore

    This could have been one of the truly great RTS games. The sheer dimension of the mass battles is impressive. And while pathfinding and AI deliver, the game design, campaign and diversity of the two fractions disappoint. It’s a shame.

    After years of modern and futuristic warfare the WWII-scenario feels fresh again. Although nothing is really new, Rebellion manages to conjure up interesting tactical sniping action.
    • 51 Metascore

    If you're looking for an interesting tactic/roleplaying mix, this might be it. But be aware that Confrontation offers little to no challenge for hardcore tacticians.

    Unfortunately there are only 14 disciplines included, but those deliver quite some fun.

    Challenging jump&shoot with interesting level design in parallel worlds with an additional difficulty level and coop mode on PC.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 73 Critic Score
    This is an entertaining puzzler, but in terms of finesse or cleverly constructed thought experiment this is as far away from games like Starseed Pilgrim as it is from Portal or Antichamber.

    You’ll encounter fascinating puzzles in “impossible” labyrinths. Unfortunately most of the time trial-and-error will win over logic.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 73 Critic Score
    The learning curve is steep and if you’re easily frustrated you might consider going back to the predecessor. But if you’re willing to invest time and a lot of trial&error in this mass transit simulator, behind all the glitches and the useless tutorial you’ll find a motivating diamond in the rough that shows a lot of potential and keeps you awake longer than you’d like to admit.
    • 73 Metascore

    The conspiracy story is interesting, the detective work is very entertaining. Unfortunately the designers decided to lengthen the experience with frustrating moments and a changing difficulty level.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 73 Critic Score
    Solid story-based arcade racer with huge open world. The online mode is conceptually interesting, but in the end in this form it is a half-baked addendum.
