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

    Passing, scoring opportunities, tactical depth – PES 2017 is a soccer masterpiece. The PC version suffers from very outdated graphics.

    Great graphics, breathtaking stunts and fantastic driving feel - Pure is the surprise hit of the year as far as racing games are concerned. It's a perfect blend of fun and action and looks fantastic. It's possible to create more than 60.000 different Quads out of components, so no Quad looks like the other in multiplayer games. There is no story at all, but it's the perfect casual game once you're done with the short career mode.

    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.

    If you can ignore the still not perfect controls on PC then Dark Souls 2 is a great game for hardcore gamers that can endure some suffering. They will scream in front of the screen - out of joy and out of frustration.

    The Talos Principle manages to mix its philosophical groundwork with the story. It also has great and rewarding puzzles.

    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 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.

    Evoland 2 is a bombastic mix of console-type RPG, fighting game, turn-based strategy and platformer - something for real game experts.

    The atmospherically dense Adventure impresses with its beautifully drawn and lovingly detailed game world.

    Silence sets new standards for the genre, simply looks fantastic and just kept us going - at least for five hours.

    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.

    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!

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

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

    Mass Effect: Andromeda is a gigantic science fiction epic and a brave new start for the series, but it doesn't completely capture the magic of its predecessors.

    If you are willing to read a lot, Orwell can send shivers down your spine when working as a profiler.

    Yes, Inquisition is an all around excellent game...A beautiful fantastic world, a great roleplaying game - but not as good as Dragon Age: Origins

    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.

    It's the best Need for Speed in years and a step in the right direction. There's more Most Wanted in this game than in the remake that was published last year.

    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?
