8.8 / 10.0 - Cris Tales
Jul 20, 2021

The graphics are colorful and beautiful, the story mostly motivating and at its core a turn based combat system with some clever time manipulation. Cris Tales got the whole package and every fan of RPGs should check out this amazing indie game.

8.8 / 10.0 - New Pokémon Snap
May 4, 2021

New Pokémon Snap shows how a good sequel should be made: You don't change the gameplay of the original, but use it as a basis to build on it with optimizations. Self-alternating routes, more boss stages, and four different motifs for each of the over 200 Pokémon show that the principle of the photo safari can still work excellently two decades later and have significantly more replay value. The only downer remains the uninspired plotline in the camp, which tends to bore rather than make the game more interesting.

Despite having a great story, a video game still needs its gameplay and here Lost Words: Beyond the Page falls very short and doesn't offer more than the usual 2D-Platformer action. If you just wanna experience the story, you can still give it a go.

Murder on Eridano improves a lot on Peril on Gorgon, alone through the division in different islands the players get a lot more overview of their surroundings. The mix of thriller and conspiracy gets the story elements to a new high, which makes the around ten hours of playtime a great experience. Only the long loading times on the PS4 and the not expandable combat system disturbs the flow of the game.

8.2 / 10.0 - Bravely Default 2
Feb 25, 2021

Bravely Default II excels in bringing back classic JRPGs with superb turnbased gameplay, unfortunately it also revives a cliched story about crystals and steep difficulty spikes, which make "grinding" an unavoidable feature of the game.

9 / 10.0 - Hitman 3
Jan 21, 2021

Hitman 3 is the great finale to the outstanding stealth-trilogy - Agent 47 traverses some of the most polished and detailed levels to date, leading to the high replayability the series is known for. Only the newly added features like the camera feel redundant to the core gameplay.

Ironically, this straightforward mix of Roleplay and Hack n Slay still holds up strong today. The element that might seem apalling to hardcore RPG-Fans is the same element that saved it from getting irrelevant - easy accessibility! Combined with the motivating story it is still as fun to play in the present as it was back then.

8.8 / 10.0 - Wasteland 3
Aug 26, 2020

On Paper Wasteland 3 sounds like the perfect RPG-Dream but the execution leaves much to be desired. Bugs, Glitches and graphics that doesn't really represent a game that releases and the end of this console generation are a bit of a letdown. Everything else from the great story, entertaining NPCs, solid battle system, clever leveldesign over to the love for details is amazing, besides some flaws that should soon be fixed, as inXile and Brian Fargo promise. Everyone that wasn't happy with the latest Fallout Games will surely love Wasteland 3.

Definitely the most beautiful version of the game with a lot of nice additions like a 10 hour long Epilog and some new modes. Newcomers will probably have some troubles to get into the old core elements of the game and the battle system but hardcore fans will have a lot do and explore in this Definitive Edition.

8.4 / 10.0 - Iron Danger
Mar 23, 2020

The unique selling point for Iron Danger is the time manipulation mechanic, which works admirably in combat situations. Made a mistake? Just rewind time! It is just plain fun to redo your tactical approaches until everything works perfectly. A must play for anybody, who wants to try something new in this kind of genre.
