    A classic, stylishly updated, for a fair price. Even without the nostalgia bonus it's a great adventure full of humor and weird characters.

    Battlefield 1 is simply outstanding in multiplayer. The fact that the campaign is just average doesn't really matter.

    What a pleasant surprise. The Coalition was able to keep the proven and brutal gameplay feeling and still improve and develop it in a sensible way.

    Street Fighter 4 turns out to be as good as we hoped. If you've never played a Street Fighter game or even one of the other games of the genre, this is your chance to do so. Countless modes and characters promise fun for several months. Similar games will have a hard time trying to be any better.

    Konami has improved the AI a lot and everything just feels smoother and more direct. It's not a revolution, but a more polished and improved version of the game.

    The first Dead Space was a stress test, this is a real game where you can stop, recover and play around with different weapons- and it's still extremly thrilling.

    StarCraft 2: Wings of Liberty is as good as expected, but you'll need to be patient with it. The game takes some time to get going and behind all the upgraded technologies it's still the same StarCraft we've been knowing for 12 years. It's the best real-time strategy game of the last years and while not perfect, StarCraft 2 is a real masterpiece of PC gaming and even better as a multi-player game.

    Empire: Total War still has some teething problems, but the latest installment of the Total War series is its best one nonetheless. The game takes place in the 18th century with eleven playable countries. As usual, you govern you country and move your armies on the strategy map, while battles are fought in real-time, including sea battles. If you like strategy games, you need to play Empire: Total War.

    The small changed could have been sold as a DLC or add-on for F1 2010, but on its own F1 2011 is a first class racing game, challenging in higher levels and very entertaining.

    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.

    An exemplary remaster of a classic shooter which is still a milestrone of the genre as far as gameplay is concerned.

    Action-packed retro shooter with a huge arsenal of weapons, lot's of customization and ribald humor.

    Compared to the already great predecessor Chaos on Deponia is even more complex, exciting, diverse and even funnier. It's perfect for Monkey Island fans, duckbills haters and Monty Phython disciples who like those subtle tones in dialogues and stories that will make adult gamers roar with laughter.

    Once again Codemasters delivers a great racing game, a worthy sequel and a sensible expansion of the game. Just the rain and snow races alone are reason enough to buy the game.

    If you haven't played this game when it first came out a long time ago , you should go and buy it right now. And if you have, you should go and buy it right now. It's the best adventure game of all time, period.

    My conclusion after eleven hours: Bioshock Infinite is one of the best games I've ever been able to experience. My conclusion after twelve hours: What the hell? Whoever calls the finale "unusual" could denote the Atlantic Ocean as a "wet". Infinite makes me simultaneously gobsmacked, amazed and very pleased - and even after two weeks, I cannot tell you exactly which emotion prevails.

    A step in the right direction: more realism and challange. The missing official licenses and wrong squads and the sometimes buggy AI are the only downsides.

    The series has sold 100 million copies and this version should add another 100 million, because everything has been done right. If you liked The Sims, you will love this new version with all its love for details. It's a real masterpiece.

    Dirt Rally is the best rally simulation at the moment and one of the best racing games of all time. Beginners will find it to be quite difficult.

    No character classes, no terrorists, no Second World-War, no AK-47 and no rewards. Do we want to play that? Oh yes! Once you launch the game and join a match, you simply can't stop playing.

    Sam Fisher is back. Conviction is faster, harder and offers more action than the predecessors, but it’s still a Splinter Cell game at heart. And for the first time, Sam Fisher is a real human character.

    Funcom turned on the afterburner and if you don’t join now, you’ll miss a wild ride. If you didn’t know what to do after reaching level 80, you are in for a treat.

    Looks like FIFA 15, but it's a better game. FIFA 16 improves the gameplay and is on par with PES 2016 again.
