    Cadence of Hyrule is great fun that skillfully stages the catchy melodies of the series, adding new elements and a totally fresh challenge with its dance mechanics.

    F1 2019 is a consistent development. At the same time, the developers actually succeeded in further improving the already excellent driving feel of F1 2018. The sheer amount of small improvements is almost overwhelming for an annual update.

    Crash Bandicoot and his chaotic troupe are definitely not boring.

    The campaign leads into every corner of Kamurocho, which is full of surprises - even if you have already played all previous installments in the series.

    The uncomplicated, demanding action and the great level architecture make the classic Contras to timeless masterpieces that you can still enjoy today.
    • 36 Metascore

    The catastrophic technical condition obscures the gaming experience enormously: glitches, bugs, poor sound mixing, zombies without hitbox make DayZ a nightmarish gaming experience that is hardly fun.

    Yes, it's just a simple shooting gallery - but what Blood & Truth is is the first big AAA production in the VR area, so to say the Uncharted of the PlayStation VR: A fantastic high-quality staged spectacle, which I do not blame for its playful limitations, because it makes it just too much fun.

    Assassin's Creed 3 is playfully still a good action adventure game that I can recommend to anyone who has not played it yet. Some gameplay elements and features may not be up-to-date anymore, but you'll get a satisfying and comprehensive package by today's standards.

    In addition I find the track design too uninspired, the character selection too lean and the driving feeling in direct comparison to inaccurate.

    Rage 2 makes it very hard to befriend the game.
    • 71 Metascore

    Days Gone doesn't re-invent the Open World concept, but thanks to the terrific combination of survival elements and third-person action, it's still a lot of fun.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    The fights are more enjoyable and accessible than in MK X. The brawls are fun, the attacks feel brutal, as it should be, and this time the even more exaggerated Fatalities set the whole course on the crown. I will spend a lot of time with this game.

    The developers have managed a technically flawless port to the hybrid console, which does not need to hide from the version on the more powerful console from Microsoft.

    My Time at Portia is just a good mood. Everything is cute and colorful, and there is always something to do.

    The graphic updates are immediately noticeable even without direct comparison.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    It mixes outstanding level design, clever gameplay gimmicks and last but not least the fantastic graphic style into a big (overall) whole that feels all around from the beginning to the end like a classic Nintendo "feel-good game".
    • 90 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    If you are willing to invest work in learning the combat system, you will have a lot of fun. Away from this, Sekiro, like his spiritual predecessors, convinces with a fascinating setting that does not match the quality and variety of game worlds like Lordran or Yharnam. Technically, however, the game presents itself from a single source, tells an exciting story and offers sufficient scope for many fun hours.

    Anyone looking to get involved with Left Alive needs patience and tremendous frustration resistance.

    The gameplay works like a hot needle and repeats itself constantly.

    Not only is it a lot of fun, as a magician, I feel really powerful when I throw my magic on my enemies with a single wave of my hand. However, they also have to be a real threat. Too often, it's the mass of enemies that bring me to my knees or the Playstation camera loses its connection to the Move controller in a hectic moment, sealing my failure.

    In terms of story and characters, Devil May Cry 5 is a double-edged sword. The coolness factor fits in comparison to the reboot and does not seem unnecessarily set up. The story itself, however, has little to offer and does not pull me through the game.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    The wonderfully crisp fights are still the greatest strength of the series and play more smoothly than ever in Dead or Alive 6.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 65 Critic Score
    Anthem annoys me in particular, because it leaves so much potential left. The Shared World Shooter has an incredibly cool unique selling proposition with the Javelins, but BioWare does not make much of it.

    As a big fan of the first part, it's not easy for me to say that, but Crackdown 3 is at least five years late...This is all the sadder, because the mechanics in Crackdown 3 are quite solid and I especially enjoy the search for the movement Orbs. But the bottom line is the sobering result of a developmental odyssey, which will probably be the last nail for the series.

    Jump Force still has problems in the current version. The balancing could still use fine tuning, the lobby is awkward, and the constant load times are annoying. Nevertheless, I enjoy the game, especially after I came to understand the combat system. Of course, it's not as complicated and diverse as a classic 2D examiner, but it's still a pleasure to try all your abilities.

    I had fun again in Hope County. Even though I bothered with many things again and was forced to hide certain things, fortunately, the over-excited Far Cry-Action remains.
    • 90 Metascore
    • 88 Critic Score
    Creative, VR-exclusive gameplay ideas embedded in a sugar-sweet world with pleasant mini-robots. A feast for platformer fans.

    In Minit, retro Zelda charm meets a world as sweet as it is weird, with more incentive to explore minute by minute.
    • 74 Metascore

    Important classic from the early Playstation 2 era, which is no longer up to date, but has a great atmosphere.

    Vane has a great premise, but it's overshadowed by glitches, bugs, graphics bugs, and a wildly spinning camera.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 58 Critic Score
    Monotonous Hero-MOBA-shooter in VR without a unique selling point. Due to a lack of variety it stops being interesting in a very short time, despite well-done controls.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Kingdom Hearts 3 is already one of the best games for me personally in 2019. Because of the childhood memories, the staging, the fun fights and the great mix of epic square fantasy and the winking Disney style. Besides, it just makes me happy to beat the styled, overpowering villains with a cactus.

    For a long time we had to wait for a worthy remake of Resident Evil 2 and to get straight to the point, every single day was more than worth it. Capcom delivers the most effective remake of all time, both visually and playfully, aimed at die-hard fans of the series as well as novices in the survival genre. The bloody splatter fireworks combined with great light and shadow effects and a sound design that miraculously supports the horror create a special atmosphere that players rarely experience.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 47 Critic Score
    Loveless cobbled-together arcade brawler with only a few scenes showing the genius of Goichi Suda.

    Tales of Vesperia grabbed me.

    New Super Mario Bros. U on the switch is again one of the best 2D Mario games. For veterans of the original, however, there are too few innovations.

    With the Spyro Reignited Trilogy fans get a more than worthy remake and newcomers get one of the best platformers of all time for the PS4.

    The perfect turn based strategy game on the go. Civilization 6 feels at home on the switch.
    • 87 Metascore

    Monster Boy is not officially part of the Wonderboy series, but despite minor balance issues it's the best part of the series so far.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 74 Critic Score
    Insane massive battles with excellent B-movie flair, a lot of fun with friends, but lacks just a little variety.
    • 93 Metascore
    • 92 Critic Score
    The fact that the actual gameplay still remains so accessible, balanced and still deep, is a special feat. For skeptics, the Smash series has a reputation as a chaotic party game. However, Ultimate underlines once again that complexity and straightforward fun need not be mutually exclusive.
    • 80 Metascore

    Although Darksiders 3 is not a masterpiece like its predecessor, Gunfire Games have managed to create an almost fun and sometimes tough action-adventure game with reduced resources and well-sanctioned gameplay.

    With Tetris Effect Mizuguchi has set another monument and designed probably the best Tetris experience ever. I have not had so much fun with Tetris since the first Game Boy.

    Pokémon: Let's Go is a game for the heart, not for the brain. However, the Pokémon feeling is transported unbeatably well.

    Technically well-done retro collection with basic beat'em-up classics that are great in co-op with friends.

    Colorful and action-packed space opera with a funny toys-to-life component. Deductions for the outrageous pricing policy.

    A mixture of the well-known Yakuza-gameplay and a familiar anime license, it suffers from the mediocre combat system and weak graphics.

    Hitman 2 is everything I wanted after the preceeding episode. More creative, more imposing, even if the basic structure remains very similar.

    It raises the bar in almost all areas to a new level, which will probably be impossible to beat for all competitors at least in this generation. Red Dead Redemption 2 is another rock star masterpiece and an example of what modern video games are capable of, both narrative and staged, but above all, technically capable. The best game for this console generation so far.

    Super Mario Party actually does almost everything I had hoped for. More playable characters, finally again a classic board game mode, successful mini-game selection and last but not least two in my opinion successful co-op modes, which at least for some new paint in this but come a bit old game principle.

    Ice with style. NHL 19 is actually a very good sports game, but the microtransactions for the HUT mode are a scandal.
    • 80 Metascore

    A good expansion for one of the most intriguing RPGs of recent times, where forced side quests stand in the way an emotional story.

    Varied turn-based strategy in watercolor-anime style with a humane story and a resonating anti-war message.

    The progress system is getting dull, the rubber band AI keeps the races overly artificially exciting - and these are just two examples of a long list of small to medium-sized quirks. But even if the game is not as perfect as the big role model Forza Horizon, I have the same amount of fun in The Crew 2 as in the open-world racer from Microsoft.
