Insomniac Games' first Spider-Man was very good, Spider-Man: Miles Morales was better, but too short." Marvel's Spider-Man 2, however, tops its predecessors

Huge variety, impressive visuals and an enhanced gameplay make Company of Heroes 3 a must-have for all RTS-enthusiasts. Some bugs and glitches aside, Company of Heroes 3 is as intense as an WWII-RTS gets.

“Super Mario 3D All-Stars” is a great trip to the past and feels like coming coming again. Even though “Super Mario 64” certainly shows its age, all three “Super Mario”-adventures are very well worth your time and your money.

87% - Anno 1800
Mar 16, 2023

Anno 1800: Console Edition brings the successful city builder to PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series S/X. Ubisoft did a great job, adapting gameplay and controls to this new environment. "Anno 1800" works surprisingly well with a gamepad.

Despite some minor flaws in the user-guidance-department, Total War: Pharaoh is a must-have-game for every RTS-fan.

Aug 24, 2020

Project Cars 3 doesn’t revolutionize racing, but delivers enjoyable simcade-action for everyone. Who felt that Project Cars 2 was too tough or overwhelming will find himself a new home here.

85% - FIFA 23
Sep 29, 2022

In short: "FIFA 23" sets a good conclusion to almost 30 years of series history and should not disappoint fans of the series.

85% - NHL 23
Oct 20, 2022

NHL 23 is another solid outing of EA Sports Hockey-Series. The gameplay sees minor improvements, that actually makes NHL 23 surpass ist predecessor. But overall the lack of real innovation is missing and therefore experienced players may give this one a pass.

"EA Sports UFC 5" is an absolutely worthy successor to its now three-year-old predecessor. Above all, the change from the honorably graying Ignite engine to the Frostbite engine is good for the martial arts series. EA Sports UFC 5 looks great and captures the vibe of UFC matches and events. However, it should also be mentioned at this point that there are sometimes mistakes and unintentionally funny contortions in the hectic fighting. Nevertheless, the confrontations are tactical and at the same time wonderfully powerful: Thanks to the sophisticated body model, punches and kicks leave their mark and have a massive effect on the course of the game. And even if the offline career is treading water, "EA Sports UFC 5" offers plenty of play for the money with its wide roster and diverse options.

A reboot looks different. Only on the pitch does "EA Sports FC 24" live up to the new name and shows that there is also a spark of innovation in the game. Thanks to the new animation technology and balancing adjustments, "EA Sports FC 24" is superior to its predecessor. The action on the pitch seems more unpredictable, dynamic and authentic. Although the duels and also the playing styles could use a little fine-tuning, this innovation is good for the game. In combination with the upgraded presentation, this creates an atmospheric football experience. On the other hand, however, there is stagnation in a large part of the game modes, crowned by an even increased pay-to-win focus in Ultimate Team. EA Sports must therefore once again lend a hand to some adjusting screws and expand its career options in particular for the future.

The interspersed role-playing and character options are decent in themselves, but overall "PGA Tour 2K23" does not come close to the depth and complexity of other sports games on the market.

After many years of "early retirement", "EA Sports PGA Tour" is at its best. The action on the course is clearly in the foreground: The golf gameplay convinces and is pleasantly demanding thanks to stroke variations and adjustments. For beginners, there are help functions and challenges that help you overcome initial difficulties. The career mode is motivating and, with its many customization and optimization options, offers sufficient scope for longer sessions. Overall, however, this type of game is unfortunately also presented in a very unspectacular way. Even with a comparatively quiet sport like golf, there is simply more. All in all, however, "EA Sports PGA Tour" delivers well in its comeback and is technically a real feast for the eyes.

"Metal Gear Solid Master Collection Vol. 1" is pure fanservice on the one hand, but on the other hand it is also a welcome trip back into gaming history.

LEGO 2K Drive is an absolutely enjoyable and family-friendly fun-racer in an open-world-environment. The game transports the LEGO-formula very well and along with its unique humor, LEGO 2K Drive is a racing-game that stands out. However, there are some flaws regarding the open-world-design and the implementation of microtransactions.

Codemasters delivers on the track and features some of the most intense and nerve-wrecking rallye-action of the past years. Considering this is the first outing under the new license and with the Unreal-Engine, EA Sports WRC is a more than solid start, but also has its flaws in career-mode and overall balancing and presentation.

78 / 100 - Rocket Arena
Jul 23, 2020

Rocket Arena is a fresh approach on 3-v-3-multiplayer. Rocket-jumping and bazooka-shooting is enjoyable for a short amount of time. Yet again, the cartoony artstyle and the lack of content hurt the overall experience.

"Immortals of Aveum" surprised us positively for long stretches, but above all it entertained us very well. Despite obvious weaknesses, such as the overall boring game world and the story, which is too much based on fantasy clichés, the first-person adventure always brought us back to the action. The fights are very varied thanks to the wide range of magic possibilities and, despite all the speed, also offer a good deal of complexity and tactics. The controls prove to be first-class during battles or even exploration of the environment. And even though "Immortals of Aveum" would certainly have been more possible in terms of story and game world, the game still delivers over 20 hours of good shooter entertainment.
