    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]

    Storytelling in 80 Days is so rich and polished that this adventure becomes your own. [12/2015, p.65]

    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]

    Beautiful, cute and wonderful. Unfortunately also very short. [04/2015, p.67]

    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]

    If the developers keep their promise to constantly expand this Diablo-like action RPG, it will stay on my iPad for long. [12/2015, p.72]

    Sanctus Reach does not offer scale or presentation comparable to Total War series, but it has the charm of an old school turn-based strategy game and seems to be a great basis for future Warhammer 40,000 titles. [03/2017, p.46]

    Two guys decided to mix spaghetti westerns with hip hop. It had no right to work, but despite simplicity and primitive visuals Luckslinger is pretty damn good. [10/2015, p.63]

    Should I dash forward or jump backwards risking getting hit? How do I deplete his defense meter so he doesn’t work out my attack patterns? How do I hit him during a super attack to maximize the damage? You will ask yourself such questions a lot while playing Yatagarasu – and that’s what makes fighting game great. [10/2015, p.63]

    Vlambeer’s game is difficult, repetitive and ugly but it doesn’t stop it from being unbelievably addictive. [02/2016, p.64]

    I’m almost completely immune to horror games – they just don’t scare me. From time to time an exception from this rule happens and Detention is one of those exceptions. First half of the game expertly blends heavy, unsettling atmosphere with occasional jump scares and it’s a shame that the second half can’t keep up. If you enjoy being scared and don’t mind an excessively convoluted story with a moderately satisfying ending, give Detention a try. [03/2017, p.53]

    Especially at the beginning Don’t Starve is ruthlessly addictive and the only thing that saves you from starving to death while plying it is the fact that it also ruthlessly devours device’s battery. [09/2015, p.68]
