    It's surely a testament of how Nintendo can take a simple concept and turn it into a robust experience. It may lack the challenge other Nintendo games have, but offers some truly relaxing moments in a wonderfully designed world...if you can handle the cuteness.

    Vermintide is actually a worthy successor to Left 4 Dead. If you can find some good friends online, just try the co-op mode and have fun. Just don't try it on your own with the help of the A.I.

    One of the most frightening games ever created, period. The Wii version may not have any truly new additions (besides the 3rd person camera), but itʼs a game you must play whichever console you own.

    While itʼs not particularly interesting mechanically as a shooter, The Line is a surprisingly bold game – itʼs not here to entertain, but rather to provoke. The story might not be without problems, but the way itʼs told, integrated through gameplay, is a welcome first for the genre; hereʼs hoping more developers learn from it.

    It’s essentially just a prologue, albeit an especially good one. The playground offers clever design combined with great variety for assassination opportunities, which will surely satisfy hardcore Hitman fans. However, the nature of this unconventional episodic approach creates the feeling that the overall content is too small and the wait for the next episode too long.

    The Sea Will Claim Everything asks its player to experience it slowly, immerse themselves in it and enjoy it, richly rewarding those that will actually do so.

    A prequel that the series desperately needed. It's not the epic story you've anticipated, but it delivers a strong punch, and with the addition of the Smart Spawn System and the Declassified missions, it is the fastest paced - most action packed Gears yet.

    It’s one of those rare examples of retro remakes that really capture the essence of the original and manage to modernize it. It’s not without its own share of issues, as it has some inconsistencies in the platform, puzzle, action mix, but nevertheless Shadow of the Beast is a worthy ode to one of the great legends of gaming.

    PS4 and Xbox One owners finally have the chance to see one of the best arcade racing series focusing exclusively on time-attack.

    Nintendo's first game for the newly arrived 3DS is more of a tech demo than a "true" game. Nevertheless, it can offer some truly enjoyable moments, especially when you are free roaming, gliding your way over the beautiful sunset of Wuhu island.

    Satellite reign can proudly carry the title of the Syndicates series’ “spiritual successor”. It manages to retain all those elements that made the series lovable while at the same time modernizing all its aspects in order to be enjoyable.

    Staying true to its genre Elite Dangerous provides a great sense of freedom in a universe where the player’s choices dictate his progression in the game. It may take some time to get accustomed to the controls and the general functions of the game but once you get the hang of it you’ll experience something unique. It is unfortunate that the experience is held back by an extremely poor tutorial and constant disconnects.

    Sam Barlow made a bold step with this experimental game that paid off.

    With the new film of the space opera saga finally on the big screen and the release of Battlefront's new sequel, both after a decade overdue, it is definitely the best time to be a Star Wars fan. The game itself is a dream-come-true for fans, and the Star Wars spectacle is strong in this one. However, if it is depth and longevity you seek... this is not the game you are looking for.

    It’s like taking part in an anthropomorphic fairytale version of Groundhog Day. Reynaldo is an instantly lovable hero, but the true strength of the game lies in the amazingly witty work of the ever-prevalent narrator.

    This is a simplistic albeit immensely entertaining game if you experience it with a friend.

    The most essential feature in this kind of games is the creation of a solid cornerstone on which the game will grow and prosper in the coming months (or years maybe). Somehow The Division manages to create this cornerstone though it leaves a lot to be desired.
