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.

Even 15 years after the original release Destroy All Humans! is a great example for satire done right. The gameplay and graphics are adjusted to modern standards but there isn't much more added to the original, which makes the Remake also an diverting adventure, missing its potential.

Nintendo came, saw and won! With a surprise announcement and directly delivered. The picturesque world explodes with humour, charme and details and offers a beautiful adventure for fans of the series. Only the fighting system doesn't really fit to the otherwise great rest of the game.

Sword Art Online Alicization Lycoris is only recommendable for hardcore fans of the series. Only than you can overlook the terrible narrative and arduous fighting system. What makes this game especially exhausting is the bad technical performance which leads to a lot of frustrating moments, that shouldn't happen in this console generation anymore.

Nearly 17 years after the original release SpongeBob SquarePants: Battle for Bikini Bottom – Rehydrated proves why it deserved a Remake. Not only because all of the original voice actors but also thanks to Purple Lamp Studios, the charme of Bikini Bottom and everyone in it is still there. Besides some smaller technical issues, you can't make anyone wrong with getting this game if you are looking for some fun.

8.5 / 10.0 - Desperados III
Jun 16, 2020

For that what Desperados III is trying to be, it gets the job done. Mimimi Productions knows how to craft probably the best games in the real time strategy genre. The western setting was beautifully done and the characters are mostly amazing. If you are a newcomer to the series, you should stick with Shadow Tactics: Blades of the Shogun because Desperados III will mainly please veterans.
