    Kyn
    If you like games like Dungeon: Siege and Divinity: Original Sin, Kyn could be a nice choice to be played. The Viking-fantasy-setting is well designed, the combat-system is fast and tactical. The classless RPG-system allows flexible character progression and skill-selection. Some minor bugs and uncomfortable menus are annoying. Graphics are nice and sound is very atmospheric.

    Devil May Cry 4 has not aged that well. Too much backtracking, boring riddles and the dull levels affect the fun overall. The gameplay instead still feels fresh and the action is really cool in 60fps. The new characters in the Special Edition are also really good, but when you play the story with them, they do not appear in the cut-scenes which looks weird. Overall Devil May Cry 4 is still a good game, but if you have played it before, you definitely do not have to buy the Special Edition. The new elements do not affect the game that much.

    The first hours in Victor Vran are really motivating and great. Killing lots of monsters, getting cool loot, equipping your hero and solving challenges keep you going for hours. Later in the game it get’s quite obvious that game has quite a few design kinks, which take the fun down a notch or two. But still: one of the best Action-RPGs since Diablo 3.

    While certainly lacking variety and neat ideas to compete with the likes of Rayman and Mario, Sega's new character Tembo more than holds its own.

    This interesting strategy-mix combines elements from turnbased classics, like Might & Magic: Heroes, King's Bounty, Disciples and Expeditions: Conquistador. Though the overall game-experience can be quite satisfying, there are some issues, that lowers the fun.

    A fresh new take on football, Rocket League serves both as a fast and fun diversion as well as a deep and complex multiplayer experience to really sink your teeth into.

    Anna’s Quest does in no way stray away from the tried and true adventure formula and doesn’t add anything new to the genre. That’s not to say that it isn’t fun – the story, in its best moments, is quite thrilling and the characters are likeable –, but it isn’t a game that will be remembered for long.

    If you like killing enemies with a katana like Kill Bill, this indie-action-platformer could be your game. The design is quite near to the also platform-title Gunpoint and it combines it with stealth- and assassination-elements like in Mark of the Ninja. The combat is quite difficult, sometimes frustrating, especially because of its try-and-error passages, that can freak you out. The Soundtrack is great and the cartoon-graphics-style fits well to the setting. UI is simple to learn and timing your actions is the key for success in the game.

    An intriguing, beautifully acted genre experiment that took me completely by surprise.

    Great mixture of tactical turn-based strategy and Cyberpunk-Espionage. Though the story and overall presentation is lacking in details, the game offers deep and rich gameplay-mechanics. The great variety of campaign-options offers lots of individual challenges for beginners and hardcore-fans as well.

    Both highly accessible and super fun to play, Heroes of the Storm comes heartily recommended. Give it a try, it's free.

    Lego Jurassic World is one of the best Lego games of the last few years. The humor is charming as usual and the presentation is more cinematic than in recent games of the series. The original score and the beautifully designed levels recreate the atmosphere of the movies perfectly. Unfortunately many gameplay elements repeat way too often, the controls of the dinosaurs are a little imprecise and there are a few annoying bugs. Despite those deficits Lego Jurassic World is a really good game which may entertain Jurassic Park fans more than the new movie.

    Nothing short of a masterpiece. With its deep storyline, smartly written quests, a stunning world to explore and more than 100 hours of roleplaying goodness, The Witcher 3 is in a class of its own.

    Project Cars makes you feel like being a real race driver, thanks to great graphics and a truly immersive helmet cam. With close to real life physics, a large selection of race cars from several eras and detailed courses from all over the world Slightly Mad Studios‘ game is a true winner. Multiplayer is good, but could be more polished.

    While not as good as The New Order, The Old Blood is a very entertaining, classical ego-shooter. The iconic castle and its surrounding mountainside make for a very immersive setting, although it’s not as depressing and dark as the predecessor. With its six hour story campaign, a lot of secrets and collectibles and a few (unspectacular) challenge modes The Old Blood is definitely worth the money.

    The Italian studio Milestone has developed many bike racing simulations like SBK, MotoGP or MXGP in the last years, but Ride takes a different route and is based on amateur motorbike racing. So it is possible to race on closed traffic roads and some famous GP-courses with over one hundred street bikes. Ride is a good game with nice physics, but unfortunately the sound is weak and there are a lot of bugs.

    Act 2 may be longer and a little more tricky, but it is composed of mostly recycled areas and familiar characters, which is a bit of a letdown. In the end, the whole package may not be the new classic we were hoping for, but it is still a charming and highly original adventure game that is easy to recommend.

    A lighthearted and colorful strategy game that is determined to replicate the formula of Dungeon Keeper while adding some fresh ideas of its own. However, this led to some awkward design decisions, uneven pacing and an unreliable interface. Alas, it is not as good as it could have been - but at least it's a much better game than the first Dungeons released in 2011.

    One and a half years after its initial release for last-gen consoles, you’ve probably heard it before: GTA 5 is one of the best games currently out there. So go ahead and buy it already. Rockstar even did a mighty fine job with the PC port.

    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.

    An enjoyably wacky romp through the Stone Age that is in dire need of more levels, more elaborate puzzles and most importantly a decent story. Or any story at all.

    Ironcast starts as a highly promising blend of puzzle game and turn-based tactical mechanics, but is ultimately let down by its monotony, uneven difficulty and sheer lack of content.

    A fantastic throwback to the D&D classics of yore, Pillars of Eternity is also a brilliant modern RPG in its own right with none of the typical Obsidian problems at launch, be it bugs or performance issues. Tactical combat, excellent atmosphere and great writing coalesce into a beautiful experience. It would be a shame not to play it several times to experience all of the meaningful decisions and consequences. As great as Baldur’s Gate.

    Although the new setting in Battlefield: Hardline is nice thing, the game is in our opinion the worst in the series so far. Not being a real disaster, it doesn’t do a really great job in multiplayer and the single-player campaign has numerous flaws.

    Revelations 2 may not induce as much heart-pounding from its horror elements as we would have liked, but it still spins a gripping tale with great atmosphere and an actually terrifying villain. Although it lacks in level variety, the campaign improves on the first Revelations quite a bit and stands as a gloomy counterpoint to the adrenaline rush of the simple yet surprisingly addictive raid mode.

    The first hours playing Starships is great fun, because it’s easy to get into and not that hard to learn the basics. After a couple of matches, though, it becomes obvious that the game is lacking complexity and depth, where it would be really needed: in tactical combat diplomacy and planet management. But even if Starships lacks long-term motivation, it’s a game you’ll be coming back to over and over again.

    An inferior sequel to 2012’s surprise hit, Hotline Miami 2 nonetheless shares many of its predecessor’s qualities. The soundtrack alone is worth the price of admission and the mosaic story makes for some very weird, albeit fun to interpret scenes.

    As far as Metroidvania games go, Ori's brilliant visuals, stunning soundtrack and spot-on controls are unparalleled. An amazing achievement.

    Cities: Skylines will be the city builder to beat in coming years. With few real flaws, this is the Sim City we were promised two years ago. Developer Colossal Order succeeds and even trumps Maxis in terms of sheer road-dropping, tax-raising fun. If you like playing mayor, there simply isn’t anything else like it out there.

    The three playable of five planned episodes in this nicely written stealth-adventure offers great storytelling and a believable main character. The stealth-mechanics combine sneaky moments with some optional action-gameplay. The dystopian setting gives you the feeling of playing George Orwell's “1984” alive. Graphics with Unity 5 Engine are good, the voice-acting of the main characters is great. Some lacking aspects in AI-failure and the more linear level-design can make you feel a little bit disappointed. But in the end it’s a quite entertaining and well done iOS-port to PC.
