    Sucker Punch has the honor of bringing us the last PS4 exclusive with Ghost of Tsushima. The game delivers an immense adventure of more than 30 hours, based on a true war. The battles, the environment, the animation, all look amazing. Still, it misses an original touch in its gameplay. Next to that, the battles tend to be the same once you get the hang of the stances.

    F1 2020 improves directly on the previous Formula 1 game from Codemasters. With MyTeam the developer has created the most complete career mode so far. The AI is also much more intense to fight in battles on track, which keeps singleplayer races interesting. Furthermore with the casual mode Codemasters have implemented every beginning driver can enjoy the F1 experience.

    SpongeBob's renewed adventure is the return of an iconic platformer we all once embraced. The game looks good and refers to a lot of hilarious situations from the cartoons. You simply can't help to smile a lot during the game, but the controls are not nearly as good. They are barely touched and feel outdated which makes the game less good than an average patty.

    The TakeOver gets its inspiration from the grandmaster Streets of Rage and does this well. The fighting is smooth and there are a lot of options to make combos. Next to that, the game has a few original features like guns that add to the variation. Despite the lack of an online co-op mode, this is a game you simply have to play. It is almost unbelievable all this came from the brain of one man!

    The transition of The Outer Worlds to the Switch is a decent one. All the content and dark humor are still there. The gameplay pretty well in handheld mode despite the Joy-Cons aren't particularly well equipped to handle a First Person Shooter. The game suffers from popups and load times, but nothing unbearable. Overall a decent package, especially for those who want to play on the go. If you plan to mostly play docked, you might want to check out one of the other platforms.

    Mortal Kombat 11 Aftermath is the biggest update for the game yet. It adds three hours to the already epic storyline and next to that three great characters, Sheeva, Fujin, and RoboCop. Next to the new story and characters, the bloodshed can be varied in new levels with stage fatalities in a more peaceful matter with a friendship. The only real downside to the content is the price.

    A decent RPG that looks like Minecraft and sports characters from Minecraft but otherwise has nothing in common with the well-known miner and builder namesake. As an RPG it is very accessible with several ways to influence the difficulty but feels very light on content and character customization. Best for those that are looking for an introduction into the genre or just for some light entertainment.

    Desperados 3 brings a compelling Wild West story telling the origins of John Cooper and his gang. Each mission is brimming with life and atmosphere and offers a real challenge. With up to six characters, each with their own abilities, there are many different styles of play possible. The game is certainly challenging but offers a lot of replayability and value for money.

    Disintegration a great game that tries new things and that should certainly be praised in a world full of sequels. The combination of a first-person shooter and real-time strategy game works well in general and is super cool to play with. Its difficulty is all over the place however, which can be a pain sometimes since the weapons don't have the weight you should be expecting.

    Maneater is a fun RPG that sadly manages to have a lot of the same gameplay. The RPG elements of the game work well, but there is too little story and the game would be a lot better with story missions. However, eating things as a shark is fun and the open world is beautiful. There is definitely some sensation to get out of this title.

    Trials of Mana brings the old SNES version of the game to the modern age, but fails to take full advantage of modern possibilities. Graphics have improved but still have odd choices like stiff garments. The balance between very easy random enemies and very tough (mini)bosses is off, requiring more grinding than we want in a modern game. All in all, Trials of Mana fails to fully deliver where its big competitor (FF7) does.

    Elder Scrolls Online Greymoor is the next chapter in the impressive MMO. The new story is dark, which is strengthened by the cold province of Skyrim and the impressive Dwemer kingdom of Blackreach. It might not feature a new class or skill line, but the new Vampire skill line and the Antiquities system make it worth your while. Add the challenging harrowstorms, new dungeons and the Trial and it's a strong package that we can highly recommend to every ESO player.

    Xenoblade Chronicles Definitive Edition is an amazing game thanks to its fantastic battle system, brilliant story and loveable cast of characters.

    Saints Row The Third Remastered offers the same as its original game but with a new virtual paint job. This, however, does not mask the problems the original game had, which is definitely a shame and holds back the game in multiple ways. Where the game is not held back is in the department of fun and humour, as is known from the Saints Row franchise. The game truly comes to its right as a co-op game but is still enjoyable as singleplayer.

    Disaster Report 4: Summer Memories is a perfect example of a beautiful story that falls short on execution. The creators seem to have put more effort into the characters than into the game itself. You also go through the game fairly quickly, if it does not crash.

    Milestone delivers the best MotoGP game to date, but the improvements that come with every iteration form a slow process. For every two steps forward, there is one step backward.

    Bleeding Edge is an online 4v4 brawler in which two teams fight to control objectives. The combat in the game feels satisfying and the characters are well balanced. Teamwork is very important and therefore as a solo player, it can be frustrating when your team doesn’t work together. It’s a shame that there is very little content in the game. Updates with more fighters, game modes and maps are desperately needed to keep Bleeding Edge fresh and entertaining.

    DCL - Drone Champions League is a fun game to explore the workings of drone racing. The game offers a very good simulation but lacks a lot when it comes to being a game. There are but few modes and no unlockables. The sound of the drones start to annoy after a while and the soundtrack is not that good. Still, if you belong to the group of people that love drones, this is the game for you.

    Final Fantasy 7 Remake might be an early contender for Game of the Year 2020 thanks to a wonderful retelling of an iconic game. While it's only the first part in a larger story, there is no denying that the reworked combat system, deep RPG mechanics and iconic characters feel right at home in 2020.

If you have to mention something to blame the game, it is perhaps that more could have been added in the form of online or multiplayer action, but even that is a conscious choice.

    While Warlords of New York brings new content for players to enjoy, this is not the most original piece of content that Massive delivered. The main quest of freeing Manhattan is the well-known Ubisoft formula repeated. The four warlords, in contrast, are fun mini-bosses to fight against, each introducing a small but fun gimmick. The main antagonist, Aaron Keener, on the other end falls completely flat. This first paid expansion for The Division 2 is a safe rollercoaster ride for players, but that's all.

It's a title full of nostalgia for those who played and loved the original, but seeing how this game was originally a handheld it might be a bit lacking for some who are looking for a brand new Switch game.

    Although the loading times do not really throw a spanner in the works, Capcom must do something about it. In addition, it would testify to fan service if the game is enriched with the fighters who are still missing. Just like the previous edition of the game, the Champion Edition is worth buying, unless you already have blisters and (digitally) bleeding knuckles. Then you have probably already played the most with your in-game money.

    Luigi's Mansion 3 treats the player to a meaty single-player adventure, with beautiful environments, a plethora of different enemies and cool puzzles. Afterwards you can even play the game with friends. The fun does get spoiled a bit by a less than ideal camera and clunky controls however. Still, it's a game that can be enjoyed by young and old alike.

    Obsidian Entertainment has learned from its previous titles and used those lessons in The Outer Worlds. It makes the best RPG from the studio to date, with a story full of choices and consequences, weird planets and inhabitants and a plethora of play-styles. It's a shame the combat feels clunky from time to time and there are fewer planets to visit than expected, but that shouldn't spoil the fun that The Outer Worlds has to offer.

    If you are looking for a magical co-op puzzlegame, then this is the game for you. This is the most beautiful and the longest entry in the series yet. There are new skills and lots of puzzels to enjoy. Whilst the battles are not so impressive, this is still a game you must have played.

    Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch is a modern classic in all the right ways. A great story, beautiful music, great combat and wonderful characters make this a RPG everyone needs to play.

    At its core, Ghost Recon Breakpoint has a lot of potential to be a great open world game. The open world looks beautiful, but feels kind of empty. The new mechanics are funny, but a bit forced most of the time. Also, the list of technical problems is far longer than should be, right after launch.

    The cartoony Yooka Laylee and the Impossible Lair is funny experience you certainly should give a try. The game delivers lots of addictive gameplay and collectibles. This adventure isn't flawless however.

    Code Vein is a new soulsborne like game that gives a different take on the genre. While it has some great elements to be enjoyed, it also falters in some areas.

    It's shorter than Forsaken, but offers a story that spreads the entire season and adds loads of successful changes. Armor 2.0 is the biggest change and it's a brilliant move. We do hope that Bungie adds more loot, because at the moment it's pretty barebones.

    The game combines some of the core aspects of its predecessors, but fails to deliver a complete and exciting experience. It lacks content and variation and gets old quick in comparison to other recent race games.

    This DLC fails to overcome the criticisms that dragged down the original game. The story is short and without surprises and mostly relies on some fun side quests. Luckily the gunplay is still as amazing as it was back in May and thanks to some welcome new additions the gameplay only gets better.

    Deck13 has learned from the first game and it has notably improved The Surge 2. Combat is visceral and fluid and the limb-targeting system remains brilliant. The level design has greatly improved and the boss fights stand out more, although there are a couple of dull fights left. The developer still needs to learn how to write an interesting story though, because this one couldn't peak our interest.

    If you've played other entries in the series and just want to experience some cool lore about the world, Yakuza 3 Remaster is the game for you. It's a game all about fanservice, but also the one you can skip if you don't want to retreat familiar waters. If you're new to the series though, this one might not be for you.

    Rad
    RAD is a cool game on paper. Unfortunately the fact is that the game falls short on a lot of areas. The worlds are a bit too small, lack diversity and cleared within a few hours. Still it's a fun game to try in between the big titles of the fall.

    Link's Awakening is back in all it's timeless glory. The main game hasn't aged a day and doesn't need any new gameplay experiences to convince anyone. It does profit from its quality of life changes, beautiful artstyle and memorable soundtrack.

    Gears 5 offers up an amazing campaign that isn't afraid to take risks, while staying true to its core. The new Escape mode is great, just like the additions to the iconic Horde mode. It's a shame the game suffers from many technical problems.
