    Biomutant is erratic in design. The mission design is too traditional and the game relies on a messy story with bad dialogue and meaningless characters, while the action and some RPG systems are better than those of peers.

    Mass Effect's Legendary Edition lovingly puts three of the best games ever back in the spotlight. That is actually enough reason to recommend this package, but it still feels as if Bioware is missing out on opportunities to turn out really big.

    Resident Evil Village is more than a worthy sequel to the seventh part. The game cleverly manages to scare players through various gameplay styles. With an imposing game world, effective thrills and a variety of secrets, the game sets a course that we would like to see in future installments.

    Returnal combines the adrenaline of a bullet hell shooter, the depth of a roguelike and the allure of a blockbuster game. That special mix provides a gaming experience that is as unforgettable as it is unforgivable.

    Outriders might not be the best game this year will bring, it is so much fun. This game is definitely a blast with its many weapons and skills. Too bad there are so many connectivity issues.

    Loop Hero is an interesting combination of genres with a very own flavour. This deck builder or roguelite or tower defense game goes deeper than you might think.

    Even though it is quite hard to master this game, it is the most accessible Monster Hunter game ever. The Wirebug makes it easier to move around and there are less waiting times between fights.

    It Takes Two is a combination of a romcom and co-op game. The platforming feels fresh and new thanks to the wonderful surroundings and game mechanics.

    Narita Boy is a perfect ode to the 80's with amazing sidescrolling action in a neon world. This game is so creative, we love it.

    When Doom 3 originally came out, we could only dream of playing it in VR. Now that's a reality, we feel that Doom 3 is simply too old. Thankfully Archiact made it very intuitive.

    Balan Wonderworld is a videogame from Yuji Naka. However, even if the team had more time we wonder if the game would be worth your time.

    Ghosts 'n Goblins Resurrection is just as mean as it used to be. Thankfully you've got option now to change the difficulty level a bit.

    Maquette starts off strong, but halfway through the story we forgot why the gameplay and the story were such a great match. Maquette offers a fun way to play with scale and is therefor still worth the try.

    Bravely Default 2 is great for people longing for the Final Fantasy experience from the NES era. If you are okay with the long dungeons and repetitive fights, you will enjoy the combinations of different classes in fights in this refreshing game.

    Super Meat Boy Forever feels completely overtaken by time. The game is inferior to its predecessor in every way. The biggest problem is the fact that an autorunner like Forever leaves much less control to the player. The levels and bosses in Super Meat Boy Forever are therefore more annoying and frustrating than fun and challenging.

    Olija's main mechanism works great, but then fails in performance. Levels rarely excite the player with interesting variations and complex level design, which makes the game disappointing as a platformer.

    Cyber Shadow is a solid ninja game that offers an old-fashioned challenge with clever checkpoints. By the end of the game, the shine is a bit off and due to several minor flaws it ends up being just a little too often frustrating.

    Little Nightmares 2 manages to surpass its predecessor with much more variety. The locations are more varied and the creepy situations are never repeated anywhere. You don't want to wake up from this nightmare.

    Super Mario 3D World is still a fantastic game that, thanks to a number of tweaks in the controls, graphics and an added online multiplayer, plays just a little better on the Switch. The included Bowser’s Fury is also a highly innovative standalone adventure that gives a fresh twist to the three-dimensional Mario formula.

    Despite being a spin-off from a spin-off, Persona 5 Strikers doesn't feel diluted. It retains almost everything that made Persona 5 so good, but it replaces turn-based combat with mindless combat. That's a shame, but otherwise Strikers is an excellent outing.

    The Medium relies mainly on the intense atmosphere. The detailed environments are amazing. But The Medium is also just too short, too easy and a bit too predictable to be named the new Silent Hill. Moreover, we can expect more from a "real" next-gen game.

    Hitman 3 manages to find an excellent balance within the existing formula. The levels are very diverse and full of options for devious assassinations. At the same time, Hitman 3 underlines that there is not much more stretch in this formula. Still, it is a worthy - and welcome - conclusion to the trilogy.

    Super Meat Boy Forever is dated. It has not stood the test of time and offers less than its predecessor in every aspect. An autorunner offers so much less control and the bosses seem annoying rather than fun.

    With a new face and tone, Battletoads manages to reinvent itself a little bit. It produces a beat 'em up that makes all kinds of forays into other genres with a sense of humor. Just like the jokes in the story, that is not always successful. The Battletoads shine as animated stars, but the lack of co-op, the very simple gameplay, and the sometimes very stretched areas do not make them look that great as video game heroes.

    Call of the Sea gives that warm, almost nostalgic feeling of wonder. This six-hour puzzle adventure is filled to the brim with beautiful environments, occult mystery and unexpected plot twists. As a player you get the feeling that you have rediscovered a long forgotten fairy tale. But be warned: Call of the Sea plays anything but smooth and requires a lot of patience.

    Haven may have been too ambitious for The Game Bakers. While the idea behind the game is nice, mediocre writing and half-baked game systems make this game anything but loving feelings.

    Once you understand that Cyberpunk is "just" an open world RPG, you will see that the once mythical promise of next-gen gaming is nothing more and nothing less than a very enjoyable buffet of thrilling missions with highly competent game systems. Cyberpunk 2077 offers nothing we haven't seen before, except for the fantastic graphics. Keanu Reeves' character Johnny Silverhand takes the main story way above the middle ground, and the freedom to take on any mission to your liking is well worked out. Furthermore, Cyberpunk 2077 is "just" a very good RPG.
