    An impressive comeback of the Need for Speed series. The game shows the touch of the experienced team that created the GTR series. It's a clear recommendation for fans of racing game despite of some balancing problems and long loading times.

    This adventure tells a fantastic story with exceptional characters, lots of humor and allusions to well-known fantasy stereotypes and logical puzzles. The 3D landscapes are beautiful and the world made us feel right at home. We had to smile at little details very often and when we finished the game after 20 hours it was actually was a melancholy moment - the hallmark of an excellent adventure.

    On the one hand it’s like the first game, on the other hand it isn’t. The philosophical background and the shocking moments are gone. But the new game still offers lots of weapons, interesting fights and great environments.

    The GTA-clone has his strong points in lots of action and the thrilling setting of occupied Paris during WW2. Amazingly, a GTA-clone can be a great game, too, and if you like a hero fighting Nazis, then this is your game.

    Another adventure from Germany with a fascinating story and great atmosphere, both off the beaten track of the usual fantasy and historical backgrounds. It may even be the best modern crime and horror adventure, but why did the developers feel the need for lame mini-puzzles and an open end?

    It’s Stalker how it should have been right from the start, even though the graphics are not up to date anymore and the AI has a few problems. It’s a quality game and we can’t wait until Stalker 2 with better graphics.

    It’s like Mario Kart for adults and the best multi-player racing game so far. It’s easy to forget how long you are already playing and there’s enough fun in this game to last for months.

    It's a typical FIFA Manager with it's great atmosphere, some bugs and with handful of small, but great improvements.

    This is a real heavy-weight in the genre of horror adventure games. Fans of the gerne will be excited.

    Is it possible for an almost prehistoric and virtually unchanged game to be fun today? Yes! If you've never played Panzer General (shame on you btw.), get this one!

    Human Revolution is a typical sneak & shoot game, everything else is just eye candy. But that's quite nice for a change, too.

    Behind all the action there's an amazingly large and deep game. Of course it's also possible to play it simple and concentrate on the main story, but if you start building your own weapons, it's even better.

    Lots of atmosphere and humor, lots of adventure. This add-on has everything: a nice, large and open world, partially absurd quests and interesting characters.

    Here it is again, that good old Heroes feeling including the forget-about-time-syndrome and the just-one-more-level-excuses. We could write a lot more, but there's just that one battle to fight.

    The game punishes every error, has a steep learning curve and is not made for beginners, but at the same time it's extremly motivating. Once you're into the game, you won't be able to stop playing for hours.

    It's still not the most realistic simulation and all those little improvements can't change that. But it's still a lot of fun due to its sheer size and huge amount of details.
