Desperados 3 might not be a huge revolution in the real-time stealth action genre at first glance. And, in fact, it's not. What it is, however, is an incredibly robust game that will keep you on your toes, will make you feel smart and - especially - will entertain you from start to finish.

To be fair, Population: One is, in terms of VR games, without a rival. That however doesn't mean it's without its issues. Entertaining gameplay and the ability to climb any surface is „balanced“ by a monotonous map and inferior gun handling. In the end, though, it's a fun shooter. Especially with friends.

6 / 10 - Hellpoint
Jan 3, 2021

Hellpoint had the potential to be something more than it is. Every prerequisite for a good Dark Souls clone was there and the basic gameplay or combat system feels good enough. Alas, the game doesn't excel at anything and isn't capable to rise from the shadow of its stronger opponents.

9 / 10 - Hitman 3
Jan 25, 2021

Hitman 3 might not offer a lot of new things at first glance, but the new locations are some of the more interesting in the trilogy and the series, and the game still proves that - in terms of gameplay - it has basically no rival. It's a shame that the story isn't very good and that the last location is, in comparison to the other ones, small and linear.

Persona 5 Strikers is, rather than a spin-off, a direct sequel that fans of the original shouldn't overlook. It's a bit more complicated for the newcomers, but an interesting story and well-made combat, albeit with some mishaps, make this a quality time even for them.

The eighth Resident Evil game tried something that may seem like a really bad idea. In the end, though, not everything is as black and white and the developers managed to deal with the painful and challenging path before them. Resident Evil Village can not only count itself as one of the best games of the year, but also as one of the best games of the series.

Some will hate this game; others will love it. That's how it goes, and in the case of Rainbow Six Extraction, it's all the more apparent. The potentially fast-approaching stereotype may put many players off, while others will love the accessible gameplay loop. Meanwhile, the game's style forces you to try all the operators' work brilliantly. The whole game works brilliantly. It's a shame that it flaunts the name Rainbow Six, which doesn't suit it given the subject matter, and that it shows some graphical age, mainly due to the seven-year-old Rainbow Six Siege on which it's based.

7 / 10 - GTFO
Feb 5, 2022

GTFO is an exciting title. There hasn't been anything quite like it before, but the somewhat unfriendly difficulty and length of the missions may put many people off unnecessarily. Those who can, however, won't go wrong by giving this game a chance.

6 / 10 - Wanderer
Feb 18, 2022

Wanderer is a good game, brought down by the fluctuating quality of a few minor parts. Whether we're talking about the story, the audiovisual design, or the gameplay, fortunately, it still holds above average thanks to its puzzles, time travel concept, and other great ideas.

10 / 10 - Elden Ring
Feb 23, 2022

Elden Ring is a game about which a lot of positive and very few negative things can be said. But we'll keep it short: this is easily a game of the year contender and quite probably FromSoftware's best title yet.

8 / 10 - Tunic
Mar 16, 2022

Tunic is precisely the short but awesome game that so many players are missing these days. But, even if you’re left wanting more after finishing it, what you get is a meticulously crafted and heartfelt game that deserves more than a few praises.

Ghostwire: Tokyo is ultimately quite enjoyable for a couple of evenings. It's not exactly deep - both in story and gameplay - but it's quite competently enjoyable for longer nights.

LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga does everything right. The new mechanics work, some of the changes fit, and the content from all nine movie episodes is a godsend for fans. However, it's a shame that the game time doesn't match it, which, while not negligible, runs into pacing issues when trying to tell the story of the entire saga.

8 / 10 - Teardown
May 4, 2022

Teardown is one of those examples that prove that you can create a unique, great and fun game with a relatively simple idea and let the players take care of the best moments. It's a beautiful puzzle sandbox game that may be plagued by a few flaws, but that doesn't take away from its strong qualities in the end.

The Stanley Parable: Ultra Deluxe doesn't just make fun of other games. It makes fun of itself and its successes and shortcomings. And it's all wrapped up in the same expert presentation as the original game all those years ago. There's more than enough new content, the new jokes are fun, and the use of old scenery in new ways is simply brilliant. The whole game is, in short, merely brilliant.

In many ways, Eternal Threads is an interactive film rather than a game, which doesn't quite tell a conventional game or film story. Rather, it is a glimpse into the lives of six English tenants while you're trying to save their lives. So while the game probably won't win any prestigious awards, it will nevertheless stick in the memory for its almost uncanny ordinariness.

At first glance, Sniper Elite 5 doesn't do much new and follows the same old patterns. For the most part, that statement is true. Still, there's a sense of a step forward during gameplay—both in terms of the gameplay itself and the level design. Shame the story is still so uninteresting. Perhaps next time?
