    Wreckfest lacks coherent vision. It feels as if Bugbear Interactive, during all these long years of development hell, still haven’t figured out what game exactly they were trying to create.

    Super Mega Baseball 2 doesn’t have photorealistic graphics or licensed Mike Trout and José Altuve, but this is, hands down, the best baseball sim this side of PlayStation.

    Coldwood Interactive changed a lot of things in the sequel, but somehow failed to add more variety or make puzzles less trivial.

    Mario Tennis Aces holds itself on the tennis court way better than Ultra Smash, but there is still a lot of room for improvement.

    You can almost feel all these awesome miniature world in your hands and even twist and turn some of them, like a Rubik’s cube. Sure, bosses are way too easy, and our enemies are childishly naive, but that’s why they don’t distract you from the main course — well-designed puzzles.

    Exciting and original at first, Forgotton Anne quickly loses its steam as the story progresses on its way to the land of forgotten video games.

    Dontnod made a couple of major mistakes developing Vampyr, but the game still deserves your attention. Its unique concept, impressive variability and gloomy London with its doomed inhabitants will make it worth your while.

    Onrush is an acquired taste, and you will probably part ways with it after 8-9 of hours of playing. Asking 60 USD for a game in this condition is way too much.

    After a rushed release of AO Tennis in Australia, Big Ant Studio had six months to fix the game‘s numerous fatal flaws for the international version, but even with patches, it’s still not fun to play.

    It’s a massive, deep, exciting sea adventure, although the developers do run aground on some reefs here and there.

    Nice-looking and highly original, Frostpunk is too simplistic for a city-building sim and too shallow to grip you with emotional hooks.

    Thrones of Britannia feels like an expansion of Total War: Attila, released as a separate game for obvious reasons. It relies on mechanics of Rome 2 and Attila and sometimes ditches them without offering a replacement. As a result, despite is epic scope, it’s a tedious, boring game fit for just one, maybe two, playthroughs.

    All systems nominal. But it could have been oh so much better.

    The most frustrating thing about this game is that it was made by the creators of Panzer Corps and Warhammer 40,000: Armageddon. They’re not newcomers to this genre, but Check Your 6 looks and plays as if it’s their first attempt at a turn-based wargame.

    It’s a standard ”enhanced port” from Wii U to Switch with minimal changes, but those who missed it the first time around will enjoy this tropical romp.

    An exciting Hollywood-esque interactive adventure with dozens of variables, and definitely the best and biggest game by Quantic Dream that makes it up for their previous failure.

    Ash of Gods, despite similar visual style, is unlike The Banner Saga. It’s a completely different game, with its own mood, ideas, features… and, unfortunately, level of quality.

    Vermintide 2 evolved far beyond a Left 4 Dead imitation. Using familiar concepts, Fatshark lovingly crafted one of the best cooperative action games in recent years.
    • 94 Metascore

    A few insignificant nitpicks aside, this is a prime example of a modern slasher, a crown jewel of this genre, a new definitive killer app for PlayStation 4.

    Far Cry 5 doesn’t propel the series forward — it just refines all of its elements and relegates the infamous towers to the dustbin of history. So if you‘re allergic to open worlds from Ubisoft, don’t say I didn’t warn you. But if you’re eager to meet new wacky characters, complete dozens of missions and enjoy the sights, welcome to Hope County, sinners!

    A chaotic, pretty much useless crossover of Final Fantasy worlds. I’m surprised that this game was made by Team Ninja.

    The developers present Pit People as a ‘turn-based adventure‘. But even this classification does not explain away all the problems of this game.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 69 Critic Score
    A well-balanced adventure with a bold ending and one really weak link. Still, it is worth 6 hours of your time.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 65 Critic Score
    A beautiful adventure with a weak story rife with boring fetch quests and pointless sneaking.

    • 75 Critic Score
    Vast underwater worlds of Subnautica are worth exploring, but don’t forget to bring a huge tank of liquefied patience with you.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Not the worst imitator of Portal 2 that gets better as the story progresses, but, alas, the moment of magical transformation never comes. You won’t miss much by skipping this game entirely.

    An enjoyable interactive movie for kids. It‘s fun, just don‘t expect a proper adventure game out of this.

    Fans of genre classics from Spielberg and Zemeckis should play Crossing Souls for that elusive magical feeling of a Hollywood fairytale, for its great 80s style soundtrack, for genuinely funny moments, and even for its thrilling, albeit naive drama… But be warned: this nostalgia trip will be bumpy as hell.

    Chuchel is very easy to play and lasts a couple of evening at best, but you will enjoy every minute of this beautiful, good-hearted game.

    The best way to experience Shadow of the Colossus — play a couple of levels at a friend’s or use the Share Play function. This game was a hit in its time, on its original platform, but we all moved on, and now the remastered version feels archaic, especially its gameplay.
