    The staging is more reminiscent of old-school role-playing games, the quests and storylines could sometimes be a bit more expansive and the balancing needs fine tuning. Nevertheless, I can recommend Thronebreaker in good conscience to every witch fan. I was so carried away by the story about Queen Meve that I gave her two nights in a row with just three hours of sleep - what more could you ask for?

    That's why it's all the more annoying that the game cannot decide what it wants to be in the end. For an Arcade racer with offroad attitude it is too complex, for a race simulation the physics are too exaggerated, the control too spongy and the navigation too imprecise.

    Honestly, right now I feel like exploring the last corners of Greece as soon as I'm done, after writing the article...And that's always a very good sign for a game.

    Sure, the gameplay comes from the predecessor, so Forza Horizon 4 is very similar to it, but the basic principle still works great.

    A carefully preserved milestone of this medium, inviting to start a fascinating journey through time to the beginnings of modern game design.

    Atmospheric and thematically very dense strategy game about agents, with some weaknesses and annoying mechanics spoiling the fun.

    Dead on time: Garage: Bad Trip presents itself as a fast-paced zombie shooter for very experienced or frustration resistant saviors of the world.

    Despite a very atmospheric world and fun basic idea it requires a huge amount of grind and is suitable especially for players with a lot of patience.

    Dragon Quest 11 successfully counts on traditional JRPG virtues in a contemporary look, becoming the best current title of the genre.

    On the pitch, no one gets the better of PES 2019, apart from that there is still a lot to do and we are still waiting for online modes.

    Clever gameplay with changing worlds drives the action role-playing game, but long-term motivation fails to appear.

    Acceptable, but altogether too generic shooter variant of the well-known Soulslike formula, which loosens up the genre with a focus on ranged combat.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 81 Critic Score
    Creepy disturbing family drama with feature length and escape-room-flair. Shallow gameplay but intense - especially in VR.

    Dumb sexism, catastrophic controls, pretended tuning: racing fans should steer clear from Super Street: The Game.

    The Tomb Raider trilogy presents itself in its best form for the final. Shadow of the Tomb Raider is an all-round great action-adventure game.

    Technically clean PC port of Yakuza history with many configuration options, well suited for newcomers.
    • 68 Metascore

    Crisp, gloomy genre mix with challenging tactical elements, but still suffers from problems regarding balance and clarity.

    My Baby balla balla: The Mother Simulator delivers pure trash humor - in both positive and negative senses.

    Monster Hunter World captivates with thrilling boss fights and its variety of weapons, but the PC port could have been technically better.

    Even more funky levels, ingredients and characters: Overcooked 2 will please anyone and should not be missed at any co-op party.

    Tempest means storm, the name says it all: if you venture in, you'll experience a unique adventure or you will be blown away by the wind.

    Stonehearth is a quiet, fascinating and thrilling building game, at least as long as we are spared the bugs.

    F1 2018 has picked up and improved the strengths of its predecessor. Feels like an update, plays fantastic.

    The number of bugs in Airport Simulator 2019 is so absurd and almost funny that it almost made us increase the review score. This idea was rejected by editorial vote.
