    Finally a game with a large publisher behind it that deliberately resists the mass market! Unfortunately Murdered has not become the game that it could have been.

    An uninspired coop-shooter, developed with a reduced cryengine 3. It’s ok for playing some matches with friends, but the game is missing longtime motivation. Unfortunately it is implemented in the very uncomfortable designed gaming-platform, named Gforce. At least, the game is free2play and offers some kind of entertainment.

    Neither bad nor great, Ancient Space offers mostly solid, sufficient space strategy on a small scale. Gameplay gets a little monotonous after a while and the story is never interesting enough to keep us hooked. On the plus side, mission design is pleasantly varied and the visuals are fine, too.

    Fairly straight-forward first person shooter set during WW2 with average cryengine graphics and boring story. Although Enemy Front lacks highlights or memorable levels, some of the more open areas invite the player to experiment with the optional stealth /sniper gameplay. Unfortunately, this aforementioned game mechanic also has its flaws.

    Operation Flashpoint turns out to be a quite acceptable first person shooter, that requires a lot of tactics. Unfortunately the game shows the same problems as its predecessor Dragon Rising: bad AI and boring repetitive missions.

    The primitive combat system and monotonous level design are reason enough to dislike this mediocre action game. And yet, there is more: The character design is disputable, to say the least, and the cut-scenes fail to support the almost non-existent storyline. Unless you are crazy for non-stop action in a solid presentation, this game is one you should avoid.

    It's clearly unfinished. But if you can look past the performance issues, weak AI and abundance of bugs, there is a nice Dungeon Keeper experience to be had. War for the Overworld does not add anything new to the formula, it does not even copy it to its full extent (take the useless walls, for example), but it is fun nonetheless. With further patching and some rebalancing, this could actually turn out as a great game one day.

    There are two sides to That Dragon, Cancer. There is the tragedy of small Joel Green, who was killed by one of the most insidious sicknesses on the planet. I feel for him and his parents. But then there is also the game that was born from this tragedy. And it is simply and quite literally too much of a pain to play.

    Deadfall Adventures is an appealing approach of merging a first-person-shooter with puzzle-elements plus a well-told B-Movie. Sadly, it tries to run with the hare and hunt with the hound, thus succeeds in neither task.

    Fans beware: This is not a Sacred game, no matter how many threes they put on the box. There is no loot, no in-depth RPG elements and no open world to explore. Above all, the game is bursting with insufferable humor and exhausting voice acting. If you manage to ignore all that, there is a good chance you might enjoy the simple combat, co-op mode and decent graphics. Even though the whole thing turns stale pretty quickly.

    If you always wanted to experience boring council meetings first hand, Urban Empire got you covered. The political machinations of this so-called city ruler are presented way too dry to elicit any other response than eye-rolling. While the part about building a city and researching new technologies is way more fun, there simply isn’t enough feedback for players to penetrate the game’s intricacies. With only a few, small maps to build on and no mod support, Urban Empire makes a poor case for itself.

    Despite its good ideas and intentions, Bound by Flame is a mediocre, often tiresome experience that suffers from a lackluster story and an ill-conceived combat system.

    Lousy graphics and bad accessibility hinder Mount & Blade’s way to a better grade. Yet, this game will make enthusiasts happy.

    A breathtaking VR experience with some spectacular vistas, dragged down by repetitive tasks, obstructive UI and a fragmented story. Unless you want to play it with Oculus Rift, give it a pass.

    Funcom’s return to single-player games feels more like a proof of concept than an actual game. Walking simulators are fine, but they have to make up in story and atmosphere what they lack in terms of gameplay and player interaction. The Park doesn’t achieve that. It’s dull, the scares are cheap and the characters lifeless.

    The interesting premise of this shooter is drenched in horrible design flaws. Tubular levels, a bad feeling for weapons, ugly textures, boring gameplay, an unnerving reload system and story inconsistencies hinder this games way to a better review score.

    A solid cover shooter with nice visuals and a fascinating story that gets dragged down by one of the laziest, most broken PC ports of all time. Wait till patched or play on Xbox One.

    Hangar 13 has done a terrible job on the PC port. But even ignoring all those pesky technical issues, Mafia 3 suffers from lack of variety. The game’s open world is dead and artificial, while the great atmosphere and competent storytelling feel wasted.

    Daylight is the first ever game using unreal engine 4 – but with its cheap, boring gameplay and muddy textures it’s not a good advertorial for epic’s tech.

    This game shows a lot of ideas and potential, but uses nearly none of it. Although the story is about breaking out of the famous high-security prison Alcatraz the game lacks not only good puzzles, graphics or animations, but even a proper atmosphere of that. So the sound and speech is nearly the highlight of the game. Not the best recommandation for an adventure.

    A bare bones port that embodies everything PC gamers hate about lazy console conversions. Capcom should have let this one rest in peace.

    What started as a strategy experiment became the worst case scenario of gaming. Ugly, impossible to handle and extremely demanding for hardware, Stormrise is possibly the worst strategy game of the year! If this is the future of RTS, I’d rather stay in the past!

    Even if you zoom all the way in, you will be hard-pressed to find any semblance of fun in this monotone shooting gallery.

    To elevate an enthusiastic fan mod like Iron Front to the level of a retail game, it definitely needs more work done than this wannabe-WWII-clunker. Horrible AI and an interface that would have been considered outdated in 1944 make this game about as impressive as a constructing a fake Tiger tank from a Fiat Panda, cardboard boxes and a few pounds of paper mâché.

    A terrible shooter with pretty much nothing to like about: the level design is horrible and the AI turns out to be foolish at best. Explicit gore does not make up for bad game design, in fact it makes this games mistakes stand out even more. If it weren't for the acceptable cutscenes and some halfway spooky level sections, this game would be an even bigger disaster than it already is.

    Unbelievable! JoWood publishes an Add-On which ultimately spoils all the fun of the original game with lousy graphics, horrible interface and lackluster gameplay.

    Totally uninspired Wipeout rip-off that has horrible flaws in track design and lacks variety.
