Editor-in-Chief of the austrian gaming media: Cerealkillerz.
Dec 4, 2022

The Callisto Protocol fails despite a solid overall performance on its high ambitions. You have to give the studio some credit for the creative approaches, especially for the gameplay and atmosphere but there is a constant lack of a final touch through the whole game, which often lets the gameplay end in frustration and boring/repetitive sections. Horror Fans with lots of endurance should still get it for the PlayStation 5.

7.2 / 10.0 - Bayonetta 3
Oct 25, 2022

Bayonetta 3 suffers from a generic story and enemies with a surprisingly boring level structure. The decision to go for more quanity delivers enough gameplay variety for hardcore fans. If you can live with repeating challenges and areas, you'll still get a crazy adventure with the gameplay, that the fans love.

9.5 / 10.0 - Elden Ring
Feb 23, 2022

Elden Ring surpasses all expectations, eliminates all doubts that we had and surprises more than any other soulsborne game so far. If you can live with rare repetitive bossfights and enemy appearances due to the open world design, you'll get the most extensive and exciting game FromSoftware has created so far.

8.9 / 10.0 - Halo Infinite
Dec 6, 2021

Halo Infinite doesn't offer all of its content at launch but shines already with a solid campaign, new innovative gameplay ideas and an expansive open world that will satisfy fans of the series. A few generic and unimaginative elements tarnish the whole package but besides these small missteps, one of the most innovative games of the series wait here for oldschool Halo Fans as well as newcomers.

You can sum up the experience with Call of Duty Vanguard in one word: Mixed. Some campaign highlights are turned down by regularly freezes in all modes, a chaotic multiplayer and one of the most generic zombie modes in years.

8.8 / 10.0 - Far Cry 6
Oct 6, 2021

Far Cry 6 is in many areas the best game of the series so far and definitely the most extensive one. Sadly the not fully thought through gameplay balance and the poor enemy AI hold the title back from reaching its full potential. You'll still get an amazing cast of characters, a fully packed game world and a great selection of fun open world activities and crazy weapons, the series is known for. Newcomers and Fans of the series alike, will have their fun with this one.

8.2 / 10.0 - Metroid Dread
Oct 6, 2021

Metroid Dread scores with well-established strengths of the series and delivers exciting bossfights and a well thought through leveldesign. Sadly the attempts of the game to create a tense atmosphere fail most of the time and the technical limits of the Nintendo Switch hold the title back from reaching its full potential.

Super Monkey Ball Banana Mania delivers what fans of the series would expect and puts everything into one great package with well integrated new guest characters. With the release on the current gen it finally reaches its full multiplayer potential with lots of offline and new online modes. The reducing of the story cutscenes to the new comic styled sequences and the small soundtrack selection are the only things that players will have to get used to.

8 / 10.0 - FIFA 22
Sep 29, 2021

Even when FIFA 22 doesn't really offer a great jump for the series, fans will get the usual whole package with lots of small steps into the right direction. The new HyperMotion technology and the option to create and manage your own club in the career stay the only real highlights.

Vicarious Visions stays with Diablo 2: Resurrected very true to the original release, which brings more problems than positive aspects. The new graphics in the cutscenes and character models are amazing and also the controller support works surpringsly well on all platforms. Sadly some relics of the past, server problems and a lof of missed chances in terms of multiplayer-features hold the title back a lot more than it should have been.

Kena: Bridge of Spirits turns out to be more than just a solid video game debut of ember lab. With cutscenes at the same level as pixar movies and a gameplay that don't need to hide behind games like The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, players get a beautifully crafted package. A bit more focus on the gameplay elements and riddles would helped the game as a whole a lot but otherwise waits probably one of the best adventures of this year for you.

The Ghost of Tsushima: Director’s Cut offers the best version of Ghost of Tsushima so far and delivers some exciting new hours of content with the Iki Island DLC, even if it is not much new for people that have already finished the main game. The missing enemy variety and the lack of really new activities and upgrades are the biggest letdowns of the new dlc content, compared to the full package players get with the Director’s Cut.

Final Fantasy VII Remake INTERmission offers a short introduction into the world of Yuffie Kisaragi, which most players can easily skip. The lack of new elements to the main game and the short and generic trip through midgar, make it really hard to recommend this DLC, even with all the technical benefits from the PS5 Upgrade.

The Ninja Gaiden Master Collection offers solid performance updates for some of the best hack-and-slash titles of the ps3 era, inlcuding some of their dlcs but doesn't fix all of their problems, which are mostly present in the camera controls of Ninja Gaiden 3. The changes are minimalistic for a remastered collection and there was a lot of potential in it but it is still the best way to experience the world of Ninja Gaiden for newcomers.

Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart is a technical masterpiece, which finally uses all of the possibilities that the PS5 has to offer. Even when the story, sidequests and mini-games play out a bit too familiar, the game still offers a lot of fun and gameplay variety, that will keep oldschool fans and newcomers entertained alike, even after reaching New Game+

8.7 / 10.0 - Returnal
Apr 29, 2021

Returnal is by far the most interesting game this year and offers everything that we are used to from Housemarque, in a level of quality and scope that I didn't thought was possible for this studio. A lot of excitement is lost due to random collectibles later in the game and not all of the roguelike elements fully come together in the end as intended. Still, no PS5 owner should miss out on Returnal.

Little Nightmares 2 surprises with an incredibly fascinating Story and some fitting grotesque locations that add to it. The new Gameplay elements doesn't really bring the expected additional game depth but besides that we really recommend this game for horror fans.

6.8 / 10.0 - The Medium
Jan 29, 2021

The Medium falls short of expectations and repeats a lot of mistakes from the previous bloober team games. From a technical standpoint the game is impressive, besides some minor lighting issues but nearly everything else disappoints just too much.

Sakuna: Of Rice and Ruin picks you up pretty good at the beginning with some great characters, a bit of charme and a thoughtful rice cultivation simulation. It sadly it loses a lot of it with repetitive gameplay design and action-rpg elements which make a lot of the tasks a bit tedious.

Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Game – Complete Edition delivers what it has to but nothing more. Retro- and Comic-Fans will still have a lot of fun after all this time but for everyone else the expierence got a bit outdated over the years.
