    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.

    Sometimes more of the same is not so crazy. Patapon 2 Remastered does not do much new compared to its predecessor, but continues the same nice tone and lets us drum cries and death marches out of our controller for hours.

    Zombie Army 4: Dead War knows how to convey the feeling of an apocalyptic world. Unfortunately, this is overshadowed by repetitive missions and moderate graphics. What remains is a superficial zombie game with many shattering bodies that it must have uncomplicated co-entertainment.

    This games feels like it's Frankenstein. The developer put the fights from other games on top of the rough rpg-systems, without contemplating if that would be a good fit. You must really love Dragon Ball Z to enjoy this.

    The fun planet AR-Y 6 totally has us invested in Journey to the Savage Planet. This colorful playground filled with (un)friendly life offers many secrets that get uncovered bit by bit. A great experience with a great sense of humor.

    The first and last dlc for Kingdom Hearts 3 is just repetition with a lack of answers. The boss fights are challenging and worthwhile, but this package does not offer enough content for its expensive price.

    Everything about this game is very familiar. It is not something very exciting. We do appreciate the new training and the original way of adding the infrared of the Joy-Cons to the mix.

    The Sims 4 Student life is a must-have for the experienced and beginning Simmer. The package adds a realistic aspect, more gameplay options and more growth options for your sim to the game. The construction and create-a-sim items are also a nice addition to the basic game.

    Terminator Resistance is a B game as they are hardly ever made these days. Many of the ambitious ideas are nowhere to be seen, but despite that the game is just perfectly playable and entertaining.

    Slay the Spire is the high point of roguelikes with deck building. Though that may be a very small niche, the game is so good that it would be a shame to miss out on.

    Remnant: From the Ashes plays borrowed neighbors with many popular games, but thanks to good shooting and co-op action, it stands completely on its own.

    The ending of Life is Strange 2 has a slow start, but as soon as the episode starts, it is on until the intense conclusion. This time the political themes are not treated so subtly, but the game manages to close the story of the Diaz brothers in a surprising and meaningful way.

    With the exploration of vast nature reserves in the form of all kinds of animals, Lost Ember offers an original way to tell a sensitive story. However, the visual finish is too rough and the gameplay too bland to really recommend it.

    Sniper Ghost Warrior Contracts offers a realistic but at the same time imperfect sniper experience. The improved mission system creates a balance between freedom and potty wandering. However, the difference per difficulty level is too large.

    Technically, the collection is not impressive - not even for a handheld - but the unbridled pirate pleasure, especially from Black Flag, will also hold its ground in 2019. With Rogue and a lot of other extras, it is a nice and substantial package.

    Darksiders Genesis feels like a B game. There is nothing wrong with that and it also justifies the lower price. Yet we would have liked a little more balance and urgency.

    We Were Here Together wants to be more than just a light-hearted co-op puzzle game. The narrative layer that this must bring, however, especially detracts from the puzzles, which are strongly designed and can stand on their own.

    Stormland shows that real open-world games can work. Sometimes the game evokes (positive) comparisons with the free battles in Far Cry and thanks to the extensive upgrade systems the game feels deep and complete.

    In terms of speed, gameplay, and storytelling, Shenmue 3 hardly matches the current spirit of the times. Everything in the game grinds and cracks on all sides - and that is precisely why it pays to dive into this epic by developer Yu Suzuki.

    Play Black Future ‘88 especially if you like to wander through procedurally made 2D dungeons with cool weapons. Despite its unclear and repetitive moments, this is a cool roguelike.

    Words are not enough to describe the beauty of Disco Elysium. The crazy freedom you get with shaping your character and the high-quality writing make this a must for fans of classic RPGs.

    The graphics might sometimes be a bit old school, the quality of Age of Empires 2: Definitive Edition certainly is not dated. This is still one of the best real-time strategy games ever made.

    If you've ever loved Call of Duty but dropped out of the series, we advise you to return. Modern Warfare offers an excellent story mode and intense multiplayer pots. Modern Warfare is Infinity Ward like it’s supposed to be.

    While Star Wars fans hoped for the ultimate redemption, Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is just a good game. The combat is nice and the Star Wars force is strong, but technical flaws and a rippling story make Fallen Order just average.

    Fortunately, the technical imperfections and the lack of genuine innovation hardly disturb. After all, Pokémon is ultimately about collecting cool, sweet, tough or kiddy little monsters that know how to steal our hearts - and Pokémon Sword and Shield are fascinating.
