    Proven mechanics and nice graphics make Endless Space a game enjoyable not only for 4X enthusiasts, but also for everyone else. [10/2012, p.71]

    Call of Duty is still unbeatable in terms of flamboyance but if you prefer a more tactical approach, enjoy sneaking around and using gadgets Future Soldier works great. [July 2012, p.78]

    My experience with Arma III contained equal doses of pleasant surprise, delight, feeling of emptiness after finishing single player missions, and longing for more. If you’re mainly interested in the single player campaign, I advise you to wait at least for the first DLC before buying this game. [CD-Action 11/2013, p.58]

    We might have grown weary of Traveller's Tales LEGO series, but Harry Potter: Years 5-7 is the best and the most complete game they've done. An ideal remedy for the headache that Electronic Arts caused us with their lousy Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 adaptation. [January 2012, p.68]

    Simplified contextual controls and overall polish make WWE '13 fast, dynamic and fluent. The number of graphical glitches during fights was considerably reduced and the fighting system is still deep enough to keep things interesting. [1/2013, p.68]

    You rarely come across a game that ages so gracefully – updating graphics (that look great, by the way) was enough, because the story is still great and shooting aliens is as enjoyable as it was 10 years ago. [January 2012, p.70]

    Capcom's great fighting game got an enhanced edition targeted mainly at hardcore fans who will appreciate not only new characters but also gameplay tweaks. [January 2012, p.72]

    EA managed to end the bad run of Need for Speeds released in odd years. But even if it’s the best NFA in a long time, it could have been better. Rivals looks and plays really good but it could use a properly working multiplayer or a real single player mode. And if you remember Most Wanted, Rivals looks quite familiar. [01/2014, p.38]

    Out of three recently released karting games – other two being F1 Racing Stars and LittleBigPlanet Karting – this is the best one, especially if you look at them through the eyes of a real gamer. [1/2013, p.70]

    An indie psychological horror that's scarier than many 'Triple A' games. [July 2012, p.86]

    I really recommend you play this game and see for yourself that an online shooter does not have to be a Call of Duty clone. [10/2012, p.76]

    If I were to rate the original game after all these years, I would still give it 9 out of 10. The elements added to the Enhanced Edition would score 6,5, maybe 7 on a good day. [01/2014, p.46]

    A couple of hilarious games combined into one.I would never suspect Japanese can laugh so hard at their RPG standards. [CD-Action 02/2013, p.65]

    A very good action game, but a weak Souls game – and even From Software and Sony were referring to Bloodborne as a Souls game. It’s got a solid basis – mixing Dark Souls’ it’s-gonna-be-hard-but-it’s-worth-the-pain character with faster pace – but it’s dragged down by some technical issues (e.g. loading times and framerate instability) and dubious gameplay design choices.

    The X360 edition is a kind of an introduction to the Minecraft's world and concept – some of important gameplay mechanics were lost in the process of simplification. [July 2012, p.87]

    Fans spoiled by sparkling creativity of Super Mario Galaxy may find the latest Mario platformer uninventive, but the pure pleasure it offers makes up for the idea recycling. Plus it features the best 3D I've seen on 3DS so far. [January 2012, p.74]

    A complex, polished and really pretty game that has nothing to be shamed of even when compared to Sid Meier’s Civilization. [13/2014, p.44]

    You will find a lot of fun in this dungeon. Instead of focusing on pretentious story, convoluted mechanics and technical bells and whistles Amplitude Studios delivered fantastic gameplay. [13/2014, p.45]

    A point’n’click that is old school in a good way – it closely resembles legendary games by Sierra. [11/2013, p.71]

    An uncommon but well executed hybrid of a platformer and an RPG set in a post-apocalyptic world. [08/2015, p.81]

    One of those games that you sit down to play for half an hour and end up spending whole night with. It’s not flawless (e.g. it lacks a multiplayer mode) but you will not regret investing time in it. [01/2014, p.50]

    If you haven’t played Okami before on PS2 or Wii, you’re in for a unique journey unlike anything you experienced in front of your console. [CD-Action 02/2013, p.67]

    The developers struck a perfect balance between an annoyingly demanding difficulty level and satisfaction for everyone. A great indie game. [11/2013, p.78]

    Expands Dishonored’s lore and provides three missions that are not overly extensive but provide enough content to keep you occupied for an hour each. [11/2013, p.79]

    The only flaws I see in this game is that you can figure out AI patterns and there’s no online multiplayer. [07/2015, p.57]

    RPG of the year and a must-have for everyone who values good story delivered in a cinematic fashion and supported by outstanding sound and graphics. [13/2014, p.58]

    Huge pixels, old school top-down perspective, 8-bit animation and choice of colours convincingly recreate the mood of 1989 – the year Hotline Miami's story takes place in. Fortunately there's also plenty of excellent, unconventional and engaging fun for mature gamers. [CD-Action 13/2012, p.76]
