    Beenox didn’t reach the peak with its reboots yet – especially if you compare it to Peter Parker’s free-roaming adventures from two console generations ago. But they are on their way.

    The presentation of battles and especially cut scenes is extraordinary. Unfortunately the tactical options are rather shallow, while there is not enough content to satisfy in the long run.

    With over 120 characters to choose from to form your fighting trio and a plethora of weapons Koei gives you a solid tactical foundation for the mass brawling. If you avoided the Warriors games so far, Orochi 3 could be the one to change your mind.

    It is a step in the right direction - but nothing more. While the more tactical fight system plays refreshingly different from the past-gen versions it still lacks refinement and balancing.

    This anime roleplaying game from the Neptunia team is full of charming antiheroes as well as redundant mechanics.

    The new mechanics introduced show a lot of potential and could have made the final chapter of the Chronicles trilogy very special. Unfortunately Climax doesn’t trust themselves and throw more in the mix that is needed. Especially the overused and unnecessary trial-and-error I could have done without.

    It offers you a decent amount of content with the open Chronicle mode taking all the glory. Aside from that don’t expect the Samurais to stray too far from the proven formula.

    This is an interesting arena brawler with lots of action and Sony celebrity cast. It can get quite chaotic though.

    Portal versus Lovecraft? Sounds intriguing. Unfortuntaly subtle horror is not Magrunner’s strength. But the puzzle and leveldesign is solid enough to entertain.

    TRI
    TRI shows a clever concept but is afraid to explore its depths and lacks a decent narrative.

    It is the storytelling that keeps Republique interesting. The stealth mechanics are not up to common standards, but the dystopian setting manages to salvage a lot.

    Unraveling the mysteries of the game mechanics set in this mystical environment is the main motivation. At least until you are lulled into the tranquil setting and start realizing that you are following a monotonous future unfolding here and there...

    An entertaining thriller adventure with supernatural puzzles that is overshadowed by technical flaws.

    In terms of storytelling, atmosphere and visuals Metro is up there with the heavyweights like BioShock Infinite. But the action is rather ordinary and held back by the appalling AI.

    It has its flaws, but nonetheless the constant change of abilities that first perfectly to the level design makes this one of the better entries in the Sonic games of late.

    It looks great, it plays surprisingly well, but there is still quite some distance to the likes of Infinity Blade 2, which simply offers more of everything.

    While Neocore missed out on the chance to bring the awesome Final Cut to the PlayStation, they nonetheless delivered the best console version of what is a modern hack&slay classic that emerged from the indie scene.

    Was it the right decision to bring wrestling back to the PC? With the abundance of sports games on this platform you would definitely think so. But as a straight port from the HD console versions it shares the same problems when it comes to presentation or controls. But as with the console siblings there is hope that new edition (which will hopefully come to PC as well) will step up to the plate and improve. The foundation is solid.

    Akai Katana doesn't give you the creative absurdity of Deathsmiles, the overkill of Dodonpachi Resurrection or the sheer beauty of Sine Mora. If you're a bullet hell fan, you'll get solid, but short lived entertainment.

    You’ll see that at WayForward there are some Duck Tales fans at work. From animations to remixes of the original soundtrack this jump&run delivers retro feeling. More puzzles, abilities or contemporary ideas would work wonders though.

    If you own the PS2 original, you don’t need this. But if you are new to this kung fu cat you’ll get a fair amount of classic action adventure for a decent price.

    This is an entertaining but very superficial outing on the centre court. Camelot is far away from what made their GameCube tennis an instant classic.

    A charming post nuclear adventure.

    It could have been an impressive start into the Formula 1 era on current console systems. Visually mostly impressive and with convincing driving physics Codemasters is on the right path. But the overly aggressive AI, the inconsistent penalty system and the disappointing damage system combined with the even further reduced content make sure that this is nothing more than a good foundation on which to build.

    The relentless difficulty level hides some potential for frustration. But nonetheless the handling is surprisingly simple, the level design is interesting.

    Is this really the Last Round? I doubt it. But that aside you’ll get a well filled beat-em-up package with subtle visual improvements. But it can’t hide that the base engine is from 2012.

    A charming first act that gives you an outlook into interesting storylines. But since puzzles are too easy and it is rather short all the hopes lie on the conclusion.

    This is a solid rendition of the well known formula, catered to the needs of the handheld generation, but without an online mode the fun is limited.

    The basic concept is interesting enough to spark your curiosity, but in the end it stays too repetitive.
