Football Drama offers an exciting concept and a sympathetic presentation. Especially after my meeting with the developer during this years Gamescom, I was really excited to see a game that depicts the whole world of football. Unfortunately the constant repetitions of the gameplay as well as the sloppy translation and missing tutorials made it a rather unsatisfying experience. If Open Lab Games improves on the last two points, I might be able to finish a few more seasons with Manager Rocco Gallianio.

Liked-a-lot - Catherine: Full Body
Sep 29, 2019

Catherine: Full Body is a moderately successful remaster. The new gameplay elements have convinced me, the help against the high difficulty is subtle but easy to reach and the many small changes in detail and the Easter-Eggs for connoisseurs of the original brought me a lot of joy while discovering them. I find it all the more incomprehensible that the graphics and textures were not screwed up again and that the voices of the characters are still asynchronous, which threw me out of the enjoyment of the story again and again. Due to the very strange mix of puzzle game and visual novel, there ist still no alternative to Catherine: Full Body and it is still a lot of fun.

Maybe - Night Call
Jul 23, 2019

Night Call was fun for me and basically has all the necessary ingredients for an exciting experience - but the many bugs, the repetetive gameplay and the feeling that it didn't quite hit it's potential stand in the way of an unconditional recommendation. In short: Night Call runs out of fuel on a long distance.

Monster Boy and the Cursed Kingdom not only does justice to the Wonder Boy series, but improves the familiar concept in many areas. The game has convinced me from the first to the last minute, and it's a pleasure to jump through the beautiful kingdom with Jin, solve puzzles and defeat demanding bosses. Monster Boy and the Cursed Kingdom is a must-have title for anyone who likes jump'n'runs or classic action-adventures.

One has to appreciate Causal Bit Games will that they tried to further develop the formula of the clear role model, which is of course Ghouls 'n Ghosts. It would have been better, however, to hand over the story mode only when it is free of it's faults and better designed. It's annoying that the difficulty of the game too often lies in finding the easiest and luckiest route through the dungeons with every new screen death, while the arcade mode seems to be much more polished. So Battle Princess Madelyn remains a likeable game which brings fun for a few hours due to the arcade mode. This and the charming character design can't fool you about the numerous annoyances, and so Madelyn finally awakens one thing above all else: The longing for Knight Arthur.

The Football Manager 2019 by Sports Interactive shows up with few innovations and surprises. The well-known formula still works, but this must not excuse why new features like the revised training do not work properly. The Football Manager still has the charm of a spreadsheet, with an old-fashioned graphics engine and new bugs. Fans will have their fun with Football Manager 2019, which despite all its weaknesses is the best version yet. However, Sports Interactive will not make the step into the mainstream with this game.

Shenmue I and II are clearly games of their time, and many newcomers will find it hard to understand the fascination of these games. But for me it was a celebration of joy to to stroll again through the dreamy streets of Yokosuka, or to fight my way through a skyscraper in Hong Kong. Sure, the 18-year-old hothead Ryo sometimes steers himself like a tank, and yes, the story has its lengths and the presentation its weaknesses. Nevertheless, todays games rarely offer such an atmosphere, credibility, immersion and charm. Shenmue I & II ultimately became exactly what I wanted it to be: A worthy remaster for fans.

Two Point Hospital is a fun and goofy Simulation game which suffers from its lack of depth and challenge.
