    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.

    While the balance of complexity and usability of the resource and the Civ5-like city management is well executed the weak AI, the abysmal diplomacy system and the superficial religion do their best to keep you away from this. Sometimes this turnbased strategy even feels unfinished.

    As a soccer fan I am disillusioned: One of the world’s leading publishers is not able to reproduce real World Cup feeling.

    The semi-automatic rush from cover to cover gives this arena shooter a unique rhythm while clever drone deployment leads to tense moments. Unfortunately the battle arenas are as conventional and predictable as the weapons or the game modes.

    After the gruesome Resident Evil 6 this is a first step to redemption. Atmosphere and exploration move back into the center, but are too often overshadowed by action. It it still a long way back to the old Resident Evil virtues, but you have to start somewhere. So why not here?

    Yes, it is entertaining. But is also hardly more than a fairly short and repetitive time travel trip through Sega's console history.

    Game set and match EA? Not really. Loads of official licences are not enough to replace the lack of a decent challenge on the court. It's still better than Virtua Tennis 4 though.

    While undoubtedly the lightnight fast combo-orgy-brawling shows potential, the price politics and technical glitches make sure that this is little more than a beat-em-up snack.

    I can appreciate the effort, but in the end John Yesterday’s first adventure was better in every aspect. Having said that, the supernatural story with its bizzare dialogue and the clever designed puzzles still deliver a rock solid mystery thriller.

    Even with improved visuals and enhanced physics this is Worms as you know and love (or hate) it.

    This is no quaint river rafting trip where you can sense the spirit of Huckleberry Finn. This is a relentless beast that let’s you die without warning. But even once you got the basics covered this is not as engrossing as Don’t Starve – even though artdesign and music are top notch.

    The visuals are excellent, the fights are explosive. But in terms of storytelling or enhancing the gameplay this add-on can’t keep up with the quality of Second Son.

    While the puzzles are challenging and a clear improvement on act 1, the humor as well as the storytelling are below Schafer standards.

    In terms of storytelling this is a step forward to the pilot episode, but it still lacks gaming elements.

    War of the Roses is what happens when you cross medieval weaponry with the Battlefield-franchise. It is motivating to fight for your next level up and the spoils that come with it, but nonetheless this game feels like it is released prematurely.

    The story is as confusing as the characters are interesting. But then, who needs a story, when you can have well executed old-school brawling fun? The multiplayer keeps things interesting, but be warned: Your frustration threshold will be put to the test before you start to enjoy the hectic, sometimes chaotic but always entertaining mayhem.

    This homage to Micro Machines works surprisingly well – until you hit the in-app-purchases wall.

    This two year old adventure looks great on PS4. And with the addition of playing the episodes in chronological order this is clearly the best version of Beyond. Nonetheless some of the old basic problems remain.

    Remember Me is a game of discrepancies. You’ll encounter incredibly atmospheric scenes just to be followed by weak or boring moments. The art design is exquisite, but the linear levels hardly make you want to look around. The most interesting part, the memory manipulation falls short and is overshadowed by incoherent fighting. What could have been extraordinary, is something you won’t remember in a few weeks.

    A charming adventure with interesting viewpoint changes as well as enchanting music and art design. The puzzles on the other hand are way too easy, while the story feels unnecessarily rushed.

    The concept is simple and motivating, while the technical execution is solid and delivers accurate head tracking. Unfortunately there can be a bug that can keep you from moving to the next level. Pity.

    Shay Cormac is the most mature character of the franchise. His motives are believable, his destiny comprehensible. The team draws a vivid picture of the former antagonists – but the recycled mechanics lack this depth even more with this ending to the North America trilogy.

    Phoenix Online manages to produce another entertaining adventure thriller with the same mystical puzzle atmosphere as the predecessor.

    Compared to games like The Raven everything seems old-fashioned. But in a kinda good way.

    A lightning fast reaction test that lacks accurate controls and variety.

    Xenoverse 2 definitely serves up more content than the predecessor and looks crisp in 60fps. But nonetheless the visuals are totally outdated while the time travel theme leads to some poor design choices like replaying quite a few fights from part 1. The fighting mechanics can salvage a lot, though.

    Milestone is Milestone is Milestone: “The Doctor”’s license aside this racing experience consists of a lot of recycling and very little progress.

    The science fiction story is interesting, but in the end Psycho Pass is little more than an anime adventure in a multiple choice corset with exhausting dialogue phases.

    Gateways is imaginative, no doubt. But to become a '2D-Portal' it needs more challenge and more diversity.

    The surreal world with its design in the spirit of heavy metal album covers sparks your interest, but with the shallow characters and hardly-challenging puzzles you get little more than solid entertainment.
