    After 23 years Day of the Tentacle is still so much more than a curious archeological find. It’s an important chapter of genre’s constitution, still reminding us how point’n’clicks should be done. [06/2016, p.42]

    The PS4 edition of WoT is the prettiest of all HD versions but upon arrival offers less vehicles than its siblings on PC, Xboxes and even mobile devices. [03/2016, p.57]

    Let’s forget about terrible cutscenes directed by Spike Lee – the game itself is still a joy to play. [12/2015, p.54]

    With its 100% old school gameplay (rocket jumps, strafe running, medkits, three lives, killer speed) Wrack is a worthy heir to id Software’s tradition. [Dec 2014, p.79]

    There were dozens of Dragon Ball games, but Xenoverse still managed to surprise me with fresh approach. It’s still primarily a fighting game, but the developers went for many features associated mainly with MMOs. [04/2015, p.56]

    A very enjoyable game rich with well-designed modes, none of which feels forced or redundant. [12/2015, p.55]

    One of the best RPG games for 3DS. [03/2014, p.77]

    I’m happy that Outer Rim not only introduces new content but also refreshes the game as a whole, making it much more enjoyable. Still no dedicated servers though. [06/2016, p.54]

    A surprisingly complex and enjoyable simulation of a correctional facility. [03/2016, p.64]

    Remastered edition tried to get rid of some nuisances of the original, but still it’s a game designed for an old, very limited console. However, if you wish to catch up on classics, first go for Ocarina of Time, then obligatorily check out Majora’s Mask. [04/2015, p.59]

    Not only is this budget hack’n’slash a quality game, but it also introduces to the genre a small but refreshing novelty – the ability to jump over obstacles and bounce off walls to reach areas inaccessible to typical Diablo slayers. [09/2015, p.53]

    Avalanche pulled out the big guns – the Star Wars license. Along with new characters and Play Sets came many additions and cool new features in the Toy Box mode. [06/2016, p.56]

    This is the most advanced and maybe even the best edition of World of Tanks. This is how the PC version should look. [10/2015, p.52]

    Unpretentious and very enjoyable game of rolling a drop of mercury through increasingly complex levels. [November 2011, p.83]

    Dirt Rally goes back to Colin McRae Rally, relinquishing all that modern Ghymkana nonsense and returning to the simple elegance of old rally titles. It’s also a game that makes you earn your triumphs and therefore makes them much more precious. [02/2016, p.52]

    Portal is still the champion of the genre, but Q.U.B.E. does a very good job at providing interesting, varied and increasingly challenging puzzles. [10/2015, p.53]

    A very ambitious game that has much more than just ambition going for it. Immersion and visuals are top notch, parkour was more enjoyable for me than in Assassin’s Creed, and it’s also hard to find equally good and satisfying melee combat anywhere. If only the story was less cliché and developers had more time to polish the game. [03/2014, p.83]

    In terms of gameplay mechanics it’s a very simple game but it does much more for understanding democracy than any citizenship lesson. [13/2013, p.72]

    Juggling three weapon types in this spectacle of destruction is really rewarding, especially if you aim for high scores and keep your enemies alive as long as possible to annihilate as many as possible simultaneously. [04/2015, p.67]

    A nameless ronin sets his foot in a seaside town of Amihama, where he immediately gets entangled in the conflict between nationalistic rebels and pro-British shogunate. What happens next? Whatever you want to happen, because WotS4 gives you such freedom of choice that every adventure lasting two hours can be different. [10/2015, p.56]

    Great visuals, wonderful unique atmosphere, Icelandic voice-overs and an opportunity to familiarize yourself with some Norse mythology. I highly recommend this gem! [12/2015, p.69]

    Do you remember “Top Gear” episodes in which football matches were played using hatchbacks? The same idea is the cornerstone of Rocket League – one of those jewels that do not care for bells and whistles (though it does look great) and Kevin Spacey in the credits, instead focusing on squeezing every last drop of fun out of a simple concept.

    We got used to developers promising huge worlds to explore, but there’s no other game where the world is so overwhelmingly vast. I honestly don’t know how much time you have to invest in Xenoblade Chronicles X to see everything this game has to offer. [02/2016, p.60]
