    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.

    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 and translates well onto consoles thanks to the very good pad controls.

    Small but very entertaining funracer for up to 16 players that could prove to be a worthy party alternative to the likes of Bomberman.

    Soul Calibur 5 won't offer many surprises. Obiviously Project Soul doesn't want to tackle a modern "Weapon Master" mode, the campaign is shallow as always (and cast with a bunch of unlikable characters). But the fighting system is still one of the best around, the presentation is excellent and the controls spot on.

    Mists of Pandaria is an extensive expansion going further than just adding raids and dungeons. The mechanical simplifications and the ridiculous amount of standard quests are annoying though.

    If you haven’t played any of the last NBA 2Ks this is the one to pick up. But even with all little improvements in almost every area it still doesn’t feel too different from last year – or the year before.

    As a party game, this is a sure hit: If you like to challenge your friend in couch-competitive play this is a thoroughly entertaining alternative to Bomberman and the like.

    The pixelated retro knight shows off imaginative enemies and excellent level design. Inert controls and some exceptionally finicky bosses are common as well, though.

    What a rush! The assault on your retinas has to be seen to be believed. If you liked Tempest, you certainly don’t want to miss this.

    It is a labor of love and homage to classics of the 8-bit-era, where the badass difficulty level of Mega Man is combined with the mystical design of Gargoyles Quest and a catchy chiptune soundtrack.

    Not really a sequel but rather an enhanced version of last year’s strategy with a few new options and a hefty price-tag.

    A beautiful short story about friendship, that serves as a link between To the Moon and its successor.

    This is a grand simulation of ice hockey. But it while it shows off a few improvements the big significant changes are still missing.

    Well written spin-off of the loot shooter series that focuses on characters and story while delivering humor and charm. Nice job, Telltale.

    Soma is a prime example for Frictional Games strengths’ in terms of world conception, direction and storytelling. Get ready to be drawn in a disturbing world of machine beings.

    Even after the second finale questions are left open – questions that might not be answered after Hideo Kojima had to leave the franchise behind. But he also leaves an impressive piece of work as his legacy. It is not without flaws and the mission design relies a little too much on recycling. But the freedom you enjoy while on your missions is exemplary.

    Yes, Stella Glow gives you nothing but old-fashioned tactics roleplaying. But it also is challenging, while adding a motivating character development.

    If this is indeed the last chapter of CyberConnects beat-em-up saga, it is a worthy farewell. You can’t expect anything new or revolutionary but you’ll get a content rich brawler with a distinctive anime-design.

    If you feel comfortable with beat em ups from Capcom or SNK then you will enjoy Skullgirls with its tremendously high difficulty level and beautiful visuals.

    Race The Sun is pure adrenaline. Unfortunately the challenges are rather short.
    • 75 Metascore

    A very entertaining and charming fantasy adventure with nicely constructed puzzles. It lacks the punch of the predecessor, though.

    Headlander is a uniquely funny, sometimes weird and visually very distinctive action-adventure.

    The 2D-action is crazy, there are lots of secrets to be discovered and Sam's humour is back to its old glory.
