1 / 10.0 - Real Farm
Mar 5, 2018

If you're looking for the probably worst farming game out there, you found it.

6.8 / 10.0 - WWE 2K20
Oct 22, 2019

WWE 2K20 doesn't look good, some Wrestlers probably wouldn't even recognize themselves. It doesn't play well despite the old engine, it doesn't run well because of a immense amount of bugs and glitches. There's not much positive to mention about the newest WWE game, so fans should stay away from this one.

7.5 / 10.0 - WWE 2K18
Oct 19, 2017

Altogether, WWE 2K18 ultimately fails to deliver on the promises made by 2K Sports, barely changing things at all. The problem with My Career is that it needs to be the focus for all players, who plan to stay with the game for a longer time, but its still dull and repetetive, making it too boring over longer periods of time. Carrying your opponent around in the ring is fine and the minor changes in the My Career Mode at least shows us that the developer admits the mode needs further improvement, but in the end it needs even more of that. Nice try 2K, but better luck next time.

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.

7.7 / 10.0 - Call of Cthulhu
Oct 29, 2018

This game has its strengths and weaknesses; unfortunately the latter outnumber the former – Call of Cthulhu is therefore just an average title with ideas that haven´t fully panned out, but if one can overlook the outdated graphics and the cheap puzzles, he will get rewarded with an atmospheric, uncanny story.

Yo-Kai Watch Blasters offers a diversion from the turn-based battles used in the main game series and the formula works quite well. Altogether it might be a little to easy, but if your main goal is to indulge into a kid-friendly adventure with weird Japanese ghost-monsters this game is for you. Especially if you can find three other people to play it with you in coop.

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.

As a remake, Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Rescue Team DX is certainly beefed up in content compared to the original games: better graphics, more dungeons and even more Pokémon will intrigue newcomers and make long standing fans revisit this on par roguelike experience.

The bottom line is that Mario Party The Top 100 is a good mini-game collection that you can play through the download play feature with up to three friends but the glory days of the N64/Gamecube era are not reached with that title because of the lack of a prober party mode.

It might be lacking the solid gameplay from other indie titles, but VA-11 Hall-A more than makes up for it with its great storytelling. This is for lovers of interesting fiction, and not for hardcore gamers.

7.9 / 10.0 - The Sinking City
Jun 24, 2019

Unfortunately, the negative aspects in The Sinking City outweigh the positive ones: lackluster graphics, bug-ridden NPCs and a combat system that fails to deliver. But if you can dismiss all this, you will be in for a great action adventure and the most detailed lovecraft game world to date. It's still a must play for every fan of eldritch horrors and detective games!

8.1 / 10.0 - Luigi's Mansion
Oct 11, 2018

Returning to the haunted estate after seventeen years should feel outdated, but Luigi´s Mansion deserves its rightful remake on the Nintendo 3DS. Not one ounce of charme has been lost in the faithful handheld port as Luigi screams and tumbles through his spooky adventure. With some minor control issues aside, the gameplay is still as it was back in the day.

8.1 / 10.0 - WarioWare Gold
Aug 6, 2018

The Franchise was always known for their curiosities and it's good to see that it keeps up with that promise for fans of the series. Besides the short story mode you'll get a best of from the mini games of the series that offer around two hours of regular gameplay before the credits roll.

8.1 / 10.0 - Gang Beasts
Dec 14, 2017

Gang Beasts works surprsingly good as party game thanks to it's easy controls and intuitive gameplay. The game still got some glitches in the physics area but it still manages to overcome these minor setbacks with the fun core mechanics behind it.

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.

WarioWare: Get It Together! lives from its weird and often amusing micro games. So for a short amount of time the game feels like a collection of amazing ideas with new surprises every time around the corner but the effect wears off after the second and third time playing the same game. The different playable characters offer some fresh takes on some gameplay elements but there could have been a lot more new features after 18 years of waiting.

Dragon Quest Builders 2 technically makes everything right: A nice story combined with motivational mission build ups deliver a great way for creative players to express themselves. The big problems from the last game stay mostly the same: The grind and the lack of variety. If you enjoyed the first game you'll still have a lot of fun with it.

Looking back at it roots, Mario Party Superstars brings back some of the biggest joys from the Nineties. A wide selection of the best minigames and classic boards originally debuting on the Nintendo 64 surely will satisfy everbody's nostalgia. On the downside it feels like there's content lacking, since there are only five playable boards, no overarching story and nothing worthwile to unlock. As soon as the nostalgia wears off, this Mario Party almost feels... incomplete.

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.

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.
