    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?

    The Evil Within has achieved something that not many games have lately: It scared me. Thanks for Mikami-san!

    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.

    Great remaster of a real action classic. The timeless gameplay mechanics still work in 2016.

    Challenging roguelike space-tactics that presents a dangerous and thrilling journey in a different way each time.

    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.

    Even eight years after release for consoles this is still a great action-rich spectacle which no fan of pc fighting games should miss.

    Whatever The Beginner's Guide is supposed to be: it's well done and everything we could say about it would be a spoiler.

    The game experience is too intense, it really feels like sitting in a real racing car. Due to the high difficulty Shift 2 should be avoided by beginners or casual racers. Everybody else can enjoy a huge and diverse racing game.

    The tactical elements go along really well with the action-heavy component of the game and with the large number of weapons and traps, it will not get boring.

    A quite brutal dark fantasy RPG that forces you to rethink, lets heroes die and thus creates a very intensive experience.

    FIFA 10 offers a few small improvements like new tactical options, but compared to Pro Evolution Soccer 6 it looks very dated. All in all, it's not enough to improve the rating compared to FIFA 09 and the series really needs a graphical update.

    Huge atmospheric open world racing game which lacks really good multiplayer ideas. In combination with the main game it's superior to similar games like Need for Speed.

    Running around, shooting, the car races and graphics are all ok, partially great. But the story is thin, some design decisions are weird (weapons that can't be picked up) and it's all pretty much the same all the time.

    Welcome to Bullworth Academy, a melting pot of high school stereotypes. Outsiders are making plans to rule the world, teachers terrorize their pupils, sports aces and rock 'n rollers try to impress the girls while the posh students wrinkle their nose. While the GTA-style game itself is well done, the technical conversion to the PC is a bit sloppy. Should you ever be asked why video games are a cultural asset, show them Bully.

    It's complex and basically a game for people with an insane love for tactics. Once you survive despite all obstacles you'll feel like the smartest tactician of them all.

    The game is never boring and always impressed by cool ideas, and diversity.

    It’s the best game covering the Napoleonic Wars, but not necessarily the best game of the Total War series. But the multi-player mode finally makes an old dream come true. But it’s still a shame that Empire: Total War did not get any of the improvements.

    Whacking Hobbits, looting houses, causing havok - being evil can be fun, sure. But who'd expect that being evil can even cause tears of laughter?
