    Maneater is a unique and entertaining shark simulator that is pretty rough around the edges. The camera angles are impossible and there is so little variation in missions. Leaving it to be like many shark movies: funny and lots of entertainment value, but not really bringing its A game.

    Minecraft Dungeons is a pretty cool but simple Diablo clone in Minecraft setting. Unfortunately the developers forgot to actually add those unique things we love about Minecraft.

    The frustrating controls and randomness of this game really spoil the fun idea that is behind this Overcooked clone.

    Tip: never play Moving Out with those who you would also ask for help with a real move. The question is whether your friendship survives at all, and watching couches being thrown through windows creates little confidence. You will have a few nice evenings though.

    After an exceptionally long waiting time, Streets of Rage 4 lives up to the very high expectations. This extremely colorful, smooth and spirited work by a team of skilled fans is one of the very best side-scrolling beat 'em ups you can play right now.

    Xcom: Chimera Squad feels like a "my first XCom" in a way, where some important choices have been removed and you have to make do with characters the creators came up with. Invading spaces with your team combines chaos with choices, but takes away a lot of control.

    Gears Tactics is a great strategy game, but that's not really surprising. It is precisely the Gears DNA - taking cover, making optimal use of the scarce grenades, the chainsaw executions - perfectly suit the genre and giving Gears Tactics its own face.

    Trials of Mana thrives in traditions. The action-packed gameplay remains cool and versatile, but the structure mainly shows the (technical) limitations in game design of the 90s.

    Other Waters is not for everyone. The game elements are deliberately cumbersome and it takes a lot of reading to unravel the mysterious game world.

    This is an overwhelmingly beautiful retelling of one of the world's most famous Japanese role-playing games. Deepening the story and a new fighting system give newcomers and fans of the first hour an adventure that anyone can enjoy.

    Any task in Good Job! is guaranteed to get out of hand and that is so much fun. Completing your task despite your own clumsiness and a completely ruined office is accompanied by a surprising amount of variety and original puzzles in this game.

    It looks nice, but that's it. This is a bland fighting game that disappoints in both single player and multiplayer mode.

    Panzer Dragoon holds a unique position in gaming history, but the new remake doesn't do it justice. Little is added, leaving only an hour of special, but archaic gameplay.

    Resident Evil 3 is lots of fun to play and it improves the original game when it comes to design and gameplay. Unfortunately it is a bit too much like the Resi 2-remake, which makes us long for something new.

    Paper Beast is a wondrous game. The paper animals all behave in their own ways, and the setup of this game is both confusing and intuitive. It's just like a dream.

    This game is more about the end game than others, but it is still fun to keep all your hospitals on track. It is both comical and grimm, which keeps us interested.

    This is a triumph in almost every way. This is the most detailed, deepest and most elaborate VR game yet. No other VR game has so much variety and depth at the same time, combined with such a perfect tempo.

    This game is unforgivingly buggy and the gameplay is way too repetitive and uninspired to be worth even a second of your time. No matter how much of a One Punch Man fan you are.

    I've rarely had so much fun while reviewing a game. The boss fights are as entertaining as the build, Doom icons (pun intended) are introduced with verve, there are countless cool settings, the gunplay is more or less the best in the genre, the combat arenas feel like morbid monkey cage games and the game wraps it all in a sauce of subtle humor and lots and lots of metal. Doom Eternal does nothing weird compared to its predecessor, but this game is much better in almost every way. And part one was already so good.

    The amazing, relaxing gameplay we love is now available in a beautiful new look. The new quests and crafting systems are great for both newcomers and fans of the series and it is great to see Animal Crossing grow without losing its charm.

    Ori and the Will of the Wisps feels familiar, even though there are many new elements introduced. Not all of them are truly adding to the experience, but they are in no way detrimental. Even though the game is buggy, this metroidvania meets platformer is still a blast.

    Kunai is again a good metroidvania as we have seen many times before in the last couple of years. The grappling hooks are fun to use, but the environment in the game is a tad boring.

    The charm of the original games is still there, but the new art style and improvements can't help this remake: it's still a disappointment.

    The Zero-games tell a great story in a few of the hardest and best action games of its time. The ZX games had their own issues, but their still worth your while.

    Snack World could have been a great gravel game for on the go but is stranded by the many confusing underlying systems and moderate writing. A pity, because the idea behind this game is perfect on the Switch.

    I thoroughly enjoyed The Pedestrian, a clever puzzle game that skillfully interweaves its concise puzzles with the game world. This clever game is more than worth a few hours for twenty euros.
