Ghost Recon: Breakpoint is huge and quite scenic at times. Unfortunately, the world is bland and empty, the mechanics are flawed, and the gameplay is more irritating than fun. The developers have cobbled too many things together, without fully realizing any of them. If you want a spec-op experience, go back to Wildlands – the last true Ghost Recon installment. Breakpoint is the first game of the Ulbimate genre by Ubisoft – an empty shell with microtransactions.

Curse of Osiris is a great example of how not to make a paid DLC. The product looks like it was stitched together from some previously discarded elements. It should be free, especially since the developers promised more frequent content updates this time around. Bungie should learn from creators of The Division (a great free DLC) or Horizon (great paid The Frozen Wilds).

A few fun moments is too little to even say that I had fun. Wolfenstein: Youngblood is a bizarre hybrid – a rail shooter with grind and endgame reminiscent of open-world games. An RPG looter-shooter without loot or real rewards. The game fails to be good at any single element it offers, and a ton of games out there is better at all of them.

6.5 / 10.0 - Anthem
Feb 20, 2019

Anthem is a constant emotional see-saw. There is a lot of fun from flying, shooting and admiring this beautiful world, and almost as much frustration due to a surprising amount of bad ideas and issues. Some won't be bothered by them and keep flying, and others will go somewhere else. Anthem is a game to both love and to hate at the same time.

6.5 / 10.0 - Far Cry: New Dawn
Feb 13, 2019

Far Cry: New Dawn is a quickly produced FC 5 with a new texture pack and some funky colors. Although the plot does not reach its potential, the game has some really creative missions, the graphics are beautiful, and the music is great. If only the cool shooting mechanic wasn't limited by the new "color system".

6.5 / 10.0 - Ghost of a Tale
Mar 19, 2018

Ghost of a Tale is just a beautiful dream – flawed. Superb characters, cool story and pretty graphics fall under the spell of clunky gameplay. It would be good if the world was big, open and inviting or if the game had 50% les quests and a shorter story. Tilo’s adventure is more of a movie material than a game – it lacks the input of experienced developers.

For me Sniper: Ghost Warrior Contracts is one of the biggest surprises of the year. I was prepared for a rehashed Ghost Warrior 3 – a very tiresome production. Fortunately, the length and diversity of the new installment maintained my interest throughout the entire game. Contracts is definitely the best game in the series, far more enjoyable than Ghost Recon: Breakpoint.

7 / 10.0 - The Sinking City
Jun 24, 2019

The Sinking City feels more like it is based on a Sherlock Holmes novel rather than a game inspired by H. P. Lovecraft's work. The part of the story focusing on supernatural elements is pretty weak, but side-quests more than make up for it. This game has a very strong “one more place to visit” or “one more conversation” vibe. It’s clunky but effective.

7 / 10.0 - State of Decay 2
May 17, 2018

State of Decay 2 has a dozen of bugs, a boring start, bad optimization and a repetitive gameplay. Against all odds, the gameplay offered by the game sucked me into the world of Zombie apocalypse and I want to play it more and more. It has this "spark" that makes you keep playing the game – a cool atmosphere, satisfying combat and sense of accomplishment that comes from every performed action. It is a Zombie-Survival-Gothic.

Farming Simulator 22 is the best installment of the series, but it’s not perfect. Some issues could have been easily avoided, while others are clearly the results of choices. But we can be sure that mods will fix many things soon. Then the veterans of the series will love it!

Sniper Ghost Warrior Contracts 2 works well as a sniping game and a stealth FPP game with interesting maps. The title focuses on getting straight to gameplay instead of overwhelming players with numerous scripts and cutscenes. It’s not perfect, but each installment of the series is getting closer to a bullseye.

7.5 / 10.0 - BIOMUTANT
May 24, 2021

Biomutant gives you a chance to experience a unique adventure but only if you’ll turn a blind eye to some flaws. The pretty, original, and very colorful world with a great artistic style is paired with not-so-pretty gameplay solutions and a handful of technical problems.

The typical gamer will find Star Wars Squadrons a difficult game with a bland storyline and poor content. Others will have an opportunity to take out their joysticks and find out just how great the classic Star Wars sims were. It’s good that the gaming community was reminded of the classics like X-Wings and TIE Fighers, but I’m still waiting for a true gem to come in the future.

7.5 / 10.0 - Need for Speed Heat
Nov 8, 2019

It’s time for a revolution. Need for Speed: Heat is definitely the best game in the current-gen series, but that’s nothing to brag about. This actually should have been the first NFS for the 8th generation of consoles – then, perhaps, we would still have remembered it as something special. But at this point, the game basically just goes through the motions. Not great, not terrible.

Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey is a breath of fresh air in the sandbox/survival genre. At the same time, the original atmosphere and compelling gameplay is blended with some subpar elements that ought to discourage many players – and there’s too much repetitiveness.

7.5 / 10.0 - Layers of Fear 2
May 23, 2019

Layers of Fear 2 is a "sightseeing horror walking simulator" that focuses on different things than games like What Remains of Edith Finch. This majestic, atmospheric game offers players a unique and bold experience, but the best features can be seen in single scenes than in the entire title.

7.5 / 10.0 - Project CARS 2
Sep 18, 2017

Project CARS 2 is like a trip to the most beautiful place that becomes more and more tiring. There is no prettier game, and driving along well known circuits with engine noise as background music is great. But all the essence – driving physics, overtaking, dealing with car trouble – is much better in F1 2017. I’m waiting for fixes!

Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds is a superb example of adapting the battle royale gameplay model. This is a true phenomenon and an event of the year but it’s much too soon to call it “game of the year”. PUBG is more of a late early access – tons of things got better over time but that’s only the beginning.

7.5 / 10.0 - Far Cry 5
Mar 25, 2018

Far Cry 5 is a weird case - some things are much better than before, and some definitely are not. A giant, exciting sandbox full of activities provides lots of satisfaction but there is not enough emphasis on storyline and the campaign itself. It is not a bad game but it would be nice to finally redefine madness and make something better than the excellent Far Cry 3.

8 / 10.0 - Sniper Elite 5
May 25, 2022

I like this slow evolution towards a full-fledged stealth game reminiscent of the Hitman series, with more options and gameplay modes. Sniper Elite 5 is a good example of how to improve your series without implementing controversial ideas.
