    The damage values in attacks are too arbitrary, the collision detection is not always optimal and wear of the weapons, at least initially more than annoying.

    A very exciting story, which makes a huge impression on me in every scene thanks to an outstanding sound design...A unique thriller that tells a story with unexpected gameplay ideas.

    The creativity put into this game is more than enough for three games, but behind the art there's not much diversity. But we still wanted to know how the story ends.

    Not a Hero is one those games that is fantastic at the beginning, but that feeling doesn't last too long. After a few hours it's less entertaining but that's ok given the price.

    This game turns everything upside down – and that’s good and bad at the same time. The physics simulation isn’t bug free and there is no story at all, but the puzzles are challenging, there are lots of save points to avoid frustration and even an online-ranking.

    Victor Vran offers motivating and dynamic battles and it's twice the fun in co-op mode.

    It's not really the next big thing, but well done, with great characters and humor. And there is still room for a lot of sequels.

    This extremely difficult indie RPG in the style of the 90s offers a lot of depth but no comfort features.

    A Vampyre Story creates a wonderful atmosphere, looks good and is very detailed, but the open end and the riddles change the picture a lot. There are not enough hints, but far too many pointless interactions. The game requires a lot of patience, which kills the fun playing it.

    A little more intelligent AI would have made the stealth and evasion exciting passages, taking somewhat more precise control of some frustrating moments. However, Warp is a nice game, everyone should try this one, especially since it only costs ten euros.

    A well done remastered version of a still fantastic RPG milestone. Small problems like the cumbersome inventory are still there, but that doesn't change the fact that everybody should get to know this game.

    Solid mix of Metroidvania and roguelike with epic boss battles, but often very conservative and sometimes slow-moving.

    Battlestations Pacific looks nice, but that doesn’t help if the rest of the game is just plain boring. Every mission plays like the last one, there’s no rise in difficulty and no real connection between the missions. After playing the game for a few hours you’ll ask yourself “What’s the point?”

    The least interesting add-on for The Sims 3. There's a good amount of new accessories, but hardly any new rules or challenges. It's like EA saying here are some new toys, go and play."
    • 74 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The best job of all may be to cound the daily revenue for The Sims 3 at EA, but this add-on probably comes quite close. Even though it's a bit more of the same, it's hard to escape the typical Sims charm.

    Well-done remake of a classic for old-school fans with a few problems regarding controls and animations.

    Evoland 2 is a bombastic mix of console-type RPG, fighting game, turn-based strategy and platformer - something for real game experts.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 66 Critic Score
    Good ideas with mediocre implementation. The basics just don't work.

    • 81 Critic Score
    It's a good game and all the ingredients are there, but it's missing the love and passion that Rocksteady used to pour into those games. The world is bigger but lifeless, the story isn't as thrilling.

    The most bombastic open-world title of the year is like a playground that works better, the more you lower your brain activity. Brain off, fun on.

    Motivating and entertaining adventure game with interesting decisions, great character design and strategic diversity.

    More freedom and lots of little improvements make this sequel a lot better - and all that for a fair price.

    Hotline Miami 2 is indeed a fun and exciting action spectacle, but also a little disappointing successor of a great game.

    Lucasarts has found a worthy heir: Daedalic from Germany. The game may deal with rubbish, dirt and crap, but there is only one word to describe Deponia: terrific!
