    Even if the framework does not appeal to you, the game scores with a motivating combat and loot system, a great level and welter design and exciting boss battles.

    It's seems a bit like heresy compared to other games of the genre. But Bliizard found a way to make it easier to get into the game without taking away the fun. Simple to learn, hard to master.

    Assassin's Creed is a feast for the eyes. The views are breathtaking, and Altair moves smoothly through the Orient. For all its great setting and dialogues, the game is not as good as it could be and should be -- gameplay is repetetive and rather predictable. But it's good enough to have a few hours of fun.

    It's a very good Fomula One game, but it's about time to improve the presentations. And what stopped the developers to implement something like Formula BMW or GP2?

    I would have liked a bit more variety.

    A philosophical-scientific story meets intelligent puzzles - with a better end of the story this could have been a real masterpiece.

    Blacklist takes a big step back. And in a positive sense.

    This game is not for everybody. It's painfully unfair, has a unique graphics style and tells its story in windows full of text. But it's an unforgettable experience once you give it a chance.

    A demanding and motivating shooter which is best with three teammates. One of the most underrated action games of the year.

    The huge amount of improvements are fitting well. It's no Alpha Centauri 2 yet - but it's getting closer.

    A real tactical shooter at last. Rainbow Six: Siege offers great and hard multiplayer battles, but it needs more content.

    Enter the Gungeon offers fresh and always fair pixel action and will be a thrill especially for Isaac fans.

    Are you good or evil? Or both? And should you buy this game? It may not be as good as Mass Effect 2, but it’s still a lot of fun to follow Mike through his adventures, despite some out of date graphics and the dumb AI, because as a role playing game, it just works fine.

    Groovy, sarcastic and pleasantly crazy. Icey is basically an action-filled spiritual successor to The Stanley Parade.

    Fast and easy to grasp RTS which has a lot to offer for Halo fans and PC strategists alike.

    A motivating manager game that offers a lot of fun despite the missing Formula 1 license and invigorates the genre.

    A great comeback for the Lego series with a great love for details and lots of comedy. But it's too easy for seasoned gamers and therefore targeted at a younger audience.

    We don't know how many houses, blockades and towers we've destroyed while playing the game, but it never got boring. If the game had a much better story, it would have been a huge hit. But it's still a very good game.

    It may not look as nice as Crysis 2, but at least there's a hero to identify with with an interesting story. If you like action without the usual war scenarios, get to Mars.

    Sequels showing up after less than a year while not showing FIFA in their name usually are a reason for concern. And, for sure, there are only a handful of improvements in this sequel. But each of them makes sense. The dragon is funnier and can do more compared to the spirits of fury, successes have real consequences and shorter ways give the game a new kind of flow.

    It's not a perfect game, but the surprise of the year: A lot of great gameplay, lots of fresh ideas and a lot of fun. You may like some things more than others, but where else can you annoy a dragon again and again by shouting the name of his nemesis?

    Yes, Rogue hardly differs from Black Flag, but it's just right.

    Worthwhile improvements and additional content - CD Projekt has put great effort into The Witcher: Enhanced Edition. With new animations, new voices, better combat, better controls and two new side quests the game is finally the great adventure the first version should have been. Buyers of the original game can download the additional content free of charge.

    Risen 3 could be outstanding, for the world, the fights, the character system are almost made ​​for a first-class role play. But the story does not build tension. It serves its purpose, but remains arbitrary and acts in many places too contrived.
