    Unfortunately, Dark Void does not meet any of our expectations. What could have been an interesting shooter with seamlessly integrated flight combat turns out to be a mediocre looking action game without outstanding moments. Besides the uninspired look and the boring level design, the biggest problem is, that there are just not enough possibilities to use the jetpack in a cool way. Most of the time you are either flying or walking. Only in a handful of situations it’s really useful to fire up your turbines during an on-foot-fight and show the enemies what death from above really means.

    A classical build up strategy game in tradition of The Settlers- and Cultures-Series from Funatics. You’ll have to conquer procedural-made islands, leading you Vikings to a portal, that leads to Valhalla. The tiny look of the toon-like characters and their animations are charming, as well as watching your folk building houses, farms and stuff. Unfortunately the transport of goods is unnecessary complicated and the AI is just acting automatically. There is no way to give precise orders, same as for the military-part of the game.

    Leisure Suit Larry: Reloaded is pretty much the same game as the original with improved graphics, sound and speech. The kickstarter project still provides you with the typical humor of the Larry Laffer-series and nearly the same puzzles, but also comes with some very uncomfortable game mechanics and lack of usability like its original version.

    This interesting strategy-mix combines elements from turnbased classics, like Might & Magic: Heroes, King's Bounty, Disciples and Expeditions: Conquistador. Though the overall game-experience can be quite satisfying, there are some issues, that lowers the fun.

    Based on the simplistic structure of Crimes and Punishments, but with the addition of clunky action sequences, QTEs and even more skippable mini-games. In short: The Devil's Daughter takes a big step in the wrong direction.

    While Telltale's first foray into Westeros certainly nails the grimdark atmosphere of this fascinating world, poor story, wordy dialogue and unlikeable characters hamper the game. It really is bewildering why Telltale chose to rehash the all too familiar story of House Stark instead of actually building something new and exciting.

    The Night of the Rabbit is an adventure that creates a wonderful magic world around it’s held Jeremia Haselnuss and brings nice characters to virtual life. But as wonderful as Daedalic Entertainment built the fantasy world with lots of details around the little boy Jeremias who wants to become a magician, they present the dialogues in a boring way and they sometimes even confuse story itself. The game also lacks hints for the puzzles which often only allow the one solution that even is the most digressive. The player doesn’t get sufficient feedback while trying to solve the puzzles, whatever there are from hints or out of dialogues with other characters. Because of this the game sometimes gets really frustrating and forces you into trial and error. Players expecting a game with the usual quality of Daedalic adventures such as the Deponia-series will be disappointed.

    A creative idea, but unfortunately the execution is not ideal.

    Sadly Sniper stays behind all expectations – which actually weren't too high – and although it's quite good looking we encountered a load of technical problems throughout the game.

    A robust, yet deeply uninspired top-down shooter that is fun for a couple of hours, but loses its charm rather quickly.

    Surprisingly, the new, controversial real-time-combat isn't the expected game breaker for Back in Action. Its much too aggressive, oftentimes stupid AI is. Add to that a bulky interface and cumbersome inventory and soon the liberation of Arulco becomes more of a chore than an enjoyable trip, motivating level-ups and non-linear gameplay notwithstanding.

    Oh dear, that went pretty wrong! After all, the last Need for Speed had some problems (we just say: filmed cutscenes), it was a competently done and above all entertaining racing game.

    It’s not the shortness of its campaign that makes Trine 3 a bad investment. It’s the abruptness of its ending and the distinct feeling, both plot-wise and in terms of glitches and bugs: this game is not finished.

    Ironcast starts as a highly promising blend of puzzle game and turn-based tactical mechanics, but is ultimately let down by its monotony, uneven difficulty and sheer lack of content.

    An enjoyably wacky romp through the Stone Age that is in dire need of more levels, more elaborate puzzles and most importantly a decent story. Or any story at all.

    Nice crusader-setting and well done main characters but the game doesn't satisfy that much. The animations aren't smooth enough, the combat-system isn't really tactical and the skill-system is useless in most options. The coop-play is disappointing, because the gameplay-experience is just the same as in single-player.

    Don’t get me wrong, Web of Shadows is unquestionably better than Spider-Man 3 was. But again Treyarch fails at porting the game from consoles to PC.

    There are plenty of good ideas in this shooter. None of them are new. And none of them are implemented as thrilling as they could have been. All that´s left is a decent shooter with a not-so-bad AI, nice but partly overdone graphics and a non-existent story. There are moments of fun, though. You just have to find them.

    Lost Planet 3 features the stormy and disastrous environments of the cold world E.D.N. III, known from the very first part of the series. The game is introduced as a prequel to the entire Lost Planet series and delivers a mix of both first and third-person action. Unfortunately Lost Planet 3 fails to fulfill the high expectations, mainly because of repetitive and even boring mission design. So the standard shooter action leaves us bugged out, although we had some fun riding the heroes’ utility rig, a mech-like mining vehicle, which also can be used to protect yourself from hostile Akrid.

    A weird mixture of WW1-shooter, zombies, demons and mechanical monsters. Though the bossfights are exciting, the leveldesign and the endless waves of dumb standard-enemies are boring. Graphics and sound are just average quality.

    An interesting story premise does not make up for the ridiculous puzzle design and some technical glitches. There are many better adventure games out there - you should avoid this one.

    Only die-hard fans of the Gothic franchise will be able to overlook the games terrible technical shortcomings. Forsaken Gods hits rock bottom of what was once a great roleplaying series.

    Finally a game with a large publisher behind it that deliberately resists the mass market! Unfortunately Murdered has not become the game that it could have been.

    An uninspired coop-shooter, developed with a reduced cryengine 3. It’s ok for playing some matches with friends, but the game is missing longtime motivation. Unfortunately it is implemented in the very uncomfortable designed gaming-platform, named Gforce. At least, the game is free2play and offers some kind of entertainment.

    Extinction is a frustrating and repetitive game, that doesn’t reach its full potential. The idea is a good one, just not executed in the right way, with the focus on the wrong parts.

    Sea of Thieves runs great on PC, but the lack of HDR support is a shame for a game like this and there are only a few options to tweak the experience if you don't have a high end configuration.
