At its core, Crown Wars: The Black Prince is an exciting strategy game, especially after you've invested a few hours of gameplay in expanding your domain and upgrading your troops. The more tactical options we got, the more fun we had, also thanks to the fast pace of the battles. However, the game still gets in its own way too often in the current version. Especially the camera is suboptimal in the fights and the fun of the skirmishes sometimes fluctuates due to the sometimes too stupid AI. The biggest fun killer, however, turned out to be the technical quirks that really wore on our nerves.

Solo Leveling: Arise is a convincing, easy-to-play action game with a slick combat system and great presentation. However, the sometimes miserably long grind, the gacha mechanics and other weaknesses prevent Jin-Woo from reaching the highest level in this version of his gripping adventure.

80% - Sand Land
Apr 24, 2024

Sand Land is a charming desert adventure that wonderfully captures the spirit of Akira Toriyama's work in its atmospheric game world, thrilling vehicle battles and exciting story. Even if there are a few game mechanics that are a bit sandy, this action RPG is a little insider tip.

"Jujutsu Kaisen: Cursed Clash" actually has all the ingredients for a great anime fighting game: A fantastic template with tons of cracking action, likeable characters, a great visual style and an exciting story in a rich world. It's all the more disappointing that the game as a whole makes so little of it.

Persona 3 Reload is a fantastic remake of an already great cult game. All kinds of clever gameplay innovations and an enormous amount of style make this a gripping JRPG that you shouldn't miss out on. The remake of the PlayStation 2 classic is even now a hot contender for the best role-playing game of the still quite young year.

The brutal battles have never felt so good, and the new Heat system adds a new tactical twist to the fights that needs to be used wisely.

With Granblue Fantasy Versus: Rising, Arc System Works accomplishes the feat of making an already excellent fighting game even better. Weaknesses of the predecessor have been skilfully eliminated, such as the then still very small selection of characters. Only the story mode could have been a bit more exciting.

Naruto X Boruto: Ultimate Ninja Storm Connections is undoubtedly the most complete and extensive game of the worldwide popular anime hit to date. Although there are no major innovations, fans and, of course, all those who want to become fans can pick it up without hesitation thanks to the large roster, two story campaigns and beginner-friendly action gameplay.

With Star Ocean: The Second Story R, a JRPG classic is celebrating a glorious comeback. Thanks to its likeable characters and complex gameplay, this is a game that no fan of old-school JRPGs should miss out on.

For long-time fans who really want to devour all the spin-offs of the franchise, "Last Recollection" is certainly worth a look. However, due to the mixed technical condition and the untapped potential, we cannot give the action RPG an unqualified recommendation for all genre fans.

Ghostrunner II is an adrenaline-pumping tour de force full of brutal sword fights, challenging platformer passages and high-speed motorbike races. Apart from minor weaknesses, you can expect one of the best (and most difficult) action games of the year.

Infinity Strash: Dragon Quest The Adventure of Da" is a wonderful entry point for newcomers to the legendary games series, which very skilfully captures the flair of its anime original time and again. However, old-fashioned game and level design keep the action RPG from unfolding its full potential.

A good combat system alone is not enough to make One-Punch Man: A Hero Nobody Knows a real hit.

Tactically complex and insanely comprehensive. Dragon Ball also works aside from fighting games
