‎Elden Ring takes everything fans love about the Soulsborne phenomenon and applies it to an open world. A wonderful, fascinating and incomparably beautiful world that connects a stranglehold on the player from the first moment – completely without falling. No gamer, no matter what you think of the previous games, should miss this.‎

Total War: Warhammer 3 is an incredibly ambitious further development of an already massive concept. A tribute to the fantasy and strategy games as a genre. The campaign is nicely framed, but it doesn't sit well in our opinion. It is characterized by some monotony and unnecessarily muddy final battles. But there is no doubt that Creative Assembly has topped the form and will carve the whole thing together into something special.

Battlefield 2042 is huge. In his best moments huge fun, but just as often hugely frustrating, stressful and difficult to understand. All controls are at max in this game, which is a clear starting point from the previous games in the series. Whether you will like it or not is impossible to answer.

Age of Empires 4 is a safe return. It is both better looking and larger than before, but at the same time is characterized by an extremely familiar feeling. The various playable civilizations are the triumph of the game, while the campaigns and inherited problems of the rts genre as a whole create some irritation.

Biomutant is an odd and brave addition to the action role-playing game, but is plagued by substandard storytelling and repeating elements. The smart weapon and equipment building system acts as a rescue plank. As a whole, the game does not live up to the hype.

Little Nightmares 2 is well worth taking a closer look at. Rarely has horror, despair and loneliness been illustrated in such a compelling way.

8 / 10 - Tell Me Why
Aug 27, 2020

Sometimes the course of events may be a little predictable, and sometimes a little too shallow. In a mystery-edged, dialogue-driven game, it is a difficult balancing act to decide how far to follow the various stories. The road to dissolution is also relatively short and we would have preferred a fourth chapter that allowed us to dig a little deeper in different places. We want more! Because under the three hundred note, you get an entertaining mystery to solve and put your own stamp on. The fact that Microsoft also allows the game to be included in Game Pass makes the acquisition issue an even bigger no-brainer. Tell Me Why is one of the most touching games of the year so far that will have your full attention from start to finish.

Iceborne is a massive addition to an already giant, vibrant Monster Hunter world. Anyone who played through and appreciated Monster Hunter World simply has zero reason not to invest in Iceborne.

Replacing a beloved game classic from scratch is not an easy task, but Capcom succeeds. Resident Evil 2 was well worth all the wait.

The game is amazingly well-polished, the fighting is like a tiny and as atmospheric environment as the environment has been framed with a clear love for the Mutant world and the characters that populate it.

Rockstar's eye for detail, presentation and tongue-in-cheek-storytelling makes this one an instant classic. Red Dead Redemption 2 is the ultimate Wild West sandbox-experience everyone has been waiting so very patiently for. It gives us more of everything we loved about the original and then takes it to a completely new level.

8 / 10 - Far Cry 5
Mar 26, 2018

Far Cry 5 is an epic soundbox experience, driven by the joy of exploration and all-out chaotic gunplay. It's all good fun, but also very familiar, and we can't help but wonder what would have been if Ubisoft put more story-driven elements into the game.

For those deep into to the series, Football Manager 2018 brings several upgrades to the table. They might not work flawlessly as of yet, but do sure show great potential. The somewhat clunky UI and feature-fest might feel intimidating for new and old players alike, though.

Super Mario Odyssey is easily the most colorful game this year, and oozes with both fun and excellent game design. The collection of power moons has its dull moments, and after a while the game starts to feel a bit repetitive.

With Total War: Warhammer 2, Creative Assembly takes what they have learn from last version, and improves on every detail. One of the most entertaining strategy games in a long time.

On the pitch, PES 2018 is almost perfect. But as always, the lack of licenses is a bit of a let down. If you can look past that, it is a must-buy.

Volition is back with yet another action packed game, filled with doubtful humor and silly designed characters. Agents of Mayhem may feel like a new Saints Row in almost every aspect – but it still offers plenty of entertaining gameplay.
