    Avant-garde at its best. Not all elements of this hugely unique game merge perfectly, but I haven’t had so much fun with time travel since Chrono Trigger. [08/2015, p.62]

    Lone Wolf is more than just a computer adaptation of popular gamebooks – it’s actually a real RPG with character development, crafting and looting, just with tons of text. [02/2015, p.62]

    There is only one thing missing in Origins: a coin slot. If you're willing to reminisce about the good old days of arcade gaming, this is a great opportunity to do it.[CD-Action 13/2012, p.36]

    Skillfully designed difficulty curve and multitude of challenges make very enjoyable time spent with The Talos Principle fly by. [02/2015, p.63]

    For some reason jRPG and Ghibli did not click as superbly as one could hope for. Instead of expected perfection Ni no Kuni is just a very good game. But should we really complain about that? [CD-Action 02/2013, p.46]

    An enjoyable tactical game in the vein of the new XCOM with a very unique strategy layer. [08/2015, p.64]

    If you have played Sleeping Dogs before, there’s no point in picking up the Definitive Edition. But if you’ve missed the original game, you’re gonna have a lot of fun in Hong Kong. [01/2015, p.71]

    I was once fascinated with Micro Machines, but Toybox Turbos is a great game in its own right, not just as a stroll down the memory lane. [01/2015, p.71]

    Sports Interactive did not exactly hit the bulls-eye with their latest experiments – The Classic and Challenge modes – but the rest of the game is even more ingenious and addictive than last year. [CD-Action 13/2012, p.56]

    A traditional, well-designed dungeon crawler that requires both quick fingers and a sharp mind. [01/2015, p.72]

    Do stealth games have to be so slow? Stealth Bastard Deluxe has an answer – no, they don’t! Well, you can argue whether it’s a real stealth game or rather a platformer but the important part is that it’s very addictive and well-balanced. [CD-Action 02/2013, p.49]

    It’s not a great exaggeration to compare Serpent in the Staglands to Pillars of Eternity (if you’re willing to turn a blind eye to numerous bugs, that is). [08/2015, p.73]

    If you need a simple refuge from overly complicated strategy games and you remember Command & Conquer fondly, 8-Bit Armies is a cool little game for you. [07/2016, p.60]

    Tera struggles with a couple of annoying issues but looks wonderful, doesn't cost much and fantastic combat system turns this MMORPG into a real action game. [July 2012, p.56]

    After a slow, boring start Fall of Cybertron turned out to be solid and varied. You have to give it a chance and see a couple of robots in action to fully appreciate what at first seems to be just another simple shooter. [10/2012, p.60]

    Rockstar decided that it's enough to carry the classic Max Payne gameplay as it was over to contemporary platforms. This plan was fulfilled quite well but it would be nice to get something more than that. [July 2012, p.60]

    Daedalic Entertainment once again proved that they know how to make a point' n' click adventure game. What sets Deponia apart from their earlier work is tons of humour strongly influenced by The Secret of Monkey Island and Discworld. [10/2012, p.63]

    The game might not be polished in every detail and has a low budget feel to it, but it's been a while since I played a shooter with such a great story and I doubt we'll be getting another like that soon. [August 2012, p.58]

    Primordia's intentionally outdated looks prove that the story (including atmosphere and puzzles) is still the most important element of a point'n'click adventure game. [1/2013, p.48]

    I didn’t expect this could happen, but Square finally released a mobile Final Fantasy game that is not a steaming pile of filth. [08/2015, p.78]

    A truly huge RPG with nice visuals, enjoyable combat system and a lot to do besides the main storyline. [08/2015, p.78]

    The Enhanced Edition enchanted me the same way the original Baldur's Gate did almost 15 years ago. I'm very grateful to Overhaul Games for bringing this feeling back. [1/2013, p.54]

    Shipwrecked is fresh both in terms of gameplay mechanics and visuals and although I had more fun with the original Don’t Starve, I’m not planning on abandoning the island. [07/2016, p.64]

    A healthy compromise between forcing you to think and mindless shooting. Unfortunately it takes only 4-5 hours to finish Rochard and there's no replay value here. [January 2012, p.56]

    The gameplay is very simple, but I got hooked on it, mainly because of a great soundtrack. [03/2014, p.69]

    The game is as well-designed and polished as the original Don’t Starve, but of course your reception of Together depends on who you play it with. [07/2016, p.65]

    An interesting medieval action game with a very good combat system (except for a rather primitive mounted combat) which is more refined than its counterpart in Chivalry: Medieval Warfare. [CD-Action 13/2012, p.62]

    If you love with Battlefield's team deathmatch mode, you must get this DLC. [August 2012, p.76]
