    Mythic said they want to treat the source with respect. They said, that the ultimate rpg series returns. But is is a slap in the face at the latest when you are invited to watch a trailer for FIFA. The paywall come later and are not as evident as in Dungeon Keeper, but nonetheless this is fantasy fastfood that result in aversion instead of immersion.

    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 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.

    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.

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

    It has its moments, but they are too few so in the end the real horror lies in the monotonous game design.

    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.

    The idea is good, but the execution suffers from half-heartedness on all fronts.

    Concept and artdesign are not too bad, but the game suffers from bad movement recognition.

    Crazy Golf and Augmented Reality don’t mix well.

    Stylistically Suda 51 proves with Short Peace once more that he is a visionary. But in terms of gameplay and technically this short runner leaves a lot to be desired.

    I have to admit: the first five minutes are fun. You can’t escape the surreal and morbid fascination to operate on the helpless virtual patients. But even that won’t keep you coming back once you start getting frustrated about the careless controls or the bugs and freezes.

    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.

    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 It is outdated, visually not really appealing, offers no challenge and minimal multiplayer options.

    There is no comparison to its entertaining HD-brethren. The visuals are a joke, there are less puzzles and more senseless fighting – which is not entertaining at all, thanks to the imprecise controls. But even if you don't know the other versions, this is not worth the name.

    It is short, it is unspectacular and it doesn't show the quality that other Kinect games established over time. There is nothing magical here.

    With less focus on unspectacular Augmented Reality and more focus on suspense, psychological terror and atmosphere this could have been a great horror game for Nintendos mobile system.

    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.
    • 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.

    Lost highlights are ever-the-same clashes of enormous fleet formations, during which tactical orders are either ignored or negated by mistakes in AI behavior. Lots of shortcomings as well as a number of bugs add to the frustration.

    Controls are simple, character development is just doing enough to keep things interesting. From a technical point of view this hack&slay would leave a solid impression if you wouldn't encounter invisible level borders that restrict you. But what annoys me most is the completely useless experience system, where the points you get seem to be dished out at random.

    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.

    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.

    Boring missions, boring controls and weak visuals.

    For a few half hours here and then it might be okay, but it doesn't offer the social element of FarmVille nor the amount of content or diversity of Harvest Moon.

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

    As a little snack for fans of dungeon crawlers this just might be enough. If you don't expect too much and like to beat up Santa with bananas or carrots, you won't be disappointed.

    Thanks to Kinect you can take over all of your favorite characters. But nonetheless this is an uninspired and disappointing first person-brawler.

    Eleusis is an atmospheric, but mechanically very superficial adventure.

    The clue is in the name… Everything is light about it. The stealth mechanics, the difficulty level, the visuals, everything.
