Fans of the series will quickly find in Harvest Moon: One World that the glamor of the previous day is unfortunately gone. Farmer's life is surprisingly monotonous and boring with little detail, graphically outdated and playfully flat. The five different regions provide a bit of relief, but due to the shallow action and tasks they can hardly motivate over a longer period of time.

Although Super Mario 3D World is only an implementation for Nintendo Switch, it has not lost any of its charm and ingenuity. The loving optimization for the benefit of the gaming experience, as well as the bonus adventure Bowser's Fury, are convincing across the board and promise fun for up to four players. Even some questionable level designs can hardly tarnish the overall picture.

8.5 / 10.0 - Cyberpunk 2077
Dec 15, 2020

Cyberpunk 2077 is without question a very good game that at the end of the day only fails at one point: It cannot live up to its hype. This fact is particularly reflected in the technical condition, where game errors have a different impact from system to system. Even a gripping plot does not comfort the fact that the trip to Night City is more appearance than reality.

7 / 10.0 - Just Dance 2021
Nov 17, 2020

Just Dance 2021 is a game for fans who can't get enough of dancing. Unfortunately, the title doesn't have more to offer either, because the idea from last year to create more playful depth has apparently been discarded again. Seen in this way, apart from the new songs, there is little new to offer, which in the end creates the character of an update rather than that of a full-price videogame. A problem that has been emerging for a long time and with which one is not alone.

With Assassin’s Creed Valhalla Ubisoft ventures into something incredible: Taking the Odyssey formula and reinvent it completely. Players will face a realistic and brutal world with a serious story behind it. Protagonist Eivor and the game world are thoughtfully build with a lot of love for details. An amazing experience that is presentable.

Until now the story of Watch Dogs was an up and down, which doesn't change that much in Watch Dogs: Legion. The energy that went into the unique recruiting mechanic leaves a lot missing in the actual game world and the story, which makes the trip to london a bit cloudy, classic british.

6.9 / 10.0 - Marvel's Avengers
Sep 8, 2020

Marvel’s Avengers is an ambitious project that wants to pull players in with well known super heroes. Sadly it shows pretty quickly its weaknesses in terms of gameplay and the lack of endgame content. Besides the surprisingly good story the bad parts predominate throughout the whole game including the matchmaking in the multiplayer.

7.3 / 10.0 - Windbound
Aug 28, 2020

For an indie title Windbound does a lot right. Graphics and sound feels just right and despite islands being a bit small there is still a lot to do on them. The non existing story and the tedious controls of your own ship are the biggest letdowns of the game.

6.7 / 10.0 - Tell Me Why
Aug 27, 2020

Contrary to its predecessors Tell me Why can't really make an impact in the first episode. Not only due to it being very short but also the cryptic story build up with little to none decision options that can't be rescued by the uninteresting side characters that get introduced in it.

7.5 / 10.0 - Battletoads
Aug 20, 2020

Battletoads combines a lot that would have had potential for a surprise hit. The great humor and the hand drawn animations underline, how much effort the developers have put into this. Sadly the whole thing is way too short and has nearly no replay value.
