    Whether you enjoy it depends on your expectations. Maneater is trash. It makes no secret of it. The game is not pretty, it is not very varied or complex. But at least you're a shark. And eats people. And alligators. And other sharks. And everything at all. So the game does exactly what it says in the description. If that appeals to you, go ahead! Otherwise you can safely ignore the part.

    By today's standards the shootings are too static for my taste. In combination with the annoying graphics bugs, it is difficult for me to make an unreserved recommendation. If you just want to experience an adult story again that takes itself and its character seriously, then don't hesitate. But if you also hope for a dynamic gaming experience, there are certainly better alternatives by now.

    Although the game degenerates into quite a grind after the completion of the first series of missions, the procedurally generated worlds and the friendly community provide enough variety for long enough.

    I particularly like the playful freedom that the flexible 3-action system offers.

    Behind the browser game aesthetics and the somewhat forced humor there’s demanding tactical combat on par with Darkest Dungeon.

    Firaxis takes some risks, yes. But probably to bring a little variety to the XCOM series and maybe build a bridge to a real successor. The new features are all well thought out and offer enough differences to XCOM 2 to justify the purchase, but you shouldn't expect a revolution.

    Half-Life: Alyx redefines the word experience. Unfortunately, only in VR. And then again, luckily only in VR, because what Valve delivers here is exactly what VR fans have been hoping for for years: a system seller that makes virtual reality interesting even for people who have not had any interest in it before. And not just because of the name Half-Life, but because of the quality.

    Doom Eternal refines where its predecessor was already brilliant. Despite some minor flaws, it's one of the most intense shooters of the year.

    An insider's tip for creative and patient rocket engineers who are not afraid of a little bit of grinding.

    Very complex, slightly outdated turn based strategy game with five very long, exclusively German campaigns featuring over 1.000 different troops.

    Lazily modernized graphics, completely outdated gameplay: This remake of a classic is only for the most nostalgic of veterans.

    If you can look past the bland setting and the repetitive gameplay, this well-balanced genre mix could be your thing.

    Great tactical depth and varied turn based combat in a dark SciFi setting. Interesting scenario, but disappointing story line.

    This adventure borrows liberally from some obvious role models, but fails to live up to their examples, despite innovative audio mechanics.

    I really like Wolcen very much. This talent tree - complex and full of variants on the one hand and user-friendly on the other hand without gaps - has been my wish for Path of Exile for years...The cutscenes are also great. It's just a shame that the story runs out of air in the last third.

    Solid oldschool turn based tactics game, based on the Netflix series. Lacks any highlights, both gameplay- or storywise.

    This atmospheric resistance management game may not be a perfect game, but it’s an important one. Especially in this day and age.

    A fun zombie shooter for coop players, though without innovative elements. Beware of in-game purchases and pay walls.

    The remaster stays far below its possibilities and makes multiplayer worse than in the original. The single-player campaign is still great.
