7.5 / 10.0 - Sniper Elite 5
Jun 5, 2022

Sniper Elite is a fun game if you play in coop. Alone you will really challenge yourself, and quickly notice the game was meant to be played with a partner. It looks good, but could have been better. The x-ray shots keep on being really cool and during the nine hours the game lasts, you will not get bored easily.

Hotel Transylvania Scary Tale Adventures is a very entertaining game for the kids, but not as fun as the movies. The game gives you the adventures of three fairy tales but in vampire style. All three stories are funny. You will have to platform a lot and with that an annoying feature comes up: the camera which doesn't always help. Next to that the game is one to play, but we would wait until it is on sale.

‎Is the game worth it? Yes and no. The game lacks some dots on the i's and also lasts a short time. After about four hours, the credits roll across the screen. Fifty euros is quite tough for that. Still, if you can see through the flaws and you love the smurfs or love platformers, this is definitely one to bring home. It's nice to feel for yourself how you can escape Gargamel and hang out the hero by freeing various smurfs.‎

If you're looking for a fun and easy game to play with the whole family, you're in for a treat. The game is very short however and has nothing to do with the movies you know the Addams Family from.

Wavelengths plays it safe, which is a shame. Fortunately, this DLC is a ton of fun thanks to the deeper characterization of one of True Colors' best characters. Steph is a ton of fun to play as and the story is quite meaty.

9 / 10.0 - Lost Judgment
Oct 6, 2021

‎With all the innovations, you'll be presented with a of a game. If you like good stories, this is without a doubt the game you should play. Just keep in mind a somewhat long lawsuit at the end where the momentum could have been a bit more. It's mild criticism of a game that should be especially praised for the script.‎

This game is nice but way too short. It's is fun but too few minigames. It looks like a lot but actually, it is not.

9 / 10.0 - Lost in Random
Sep 10, 2021

Lost in Random is clearly a Zoink! game, though you can't compare it to other games from the studio. The game has its own style and gameplay and both of them are truly wonderful. If you like card games, dice games, or are simply addicted to adventuring this is the game for you. The game feels like a Tim Burton movie. Funny, but creepy and stylish at the same time. Lost in Random is truly compelling with an original story and once you start, you can't stop playing!

Life is Strange: True Colors is another good installment in the series. However, there are some flaws. The setting is far too small and you will find yourself visiting the same locations time after time. Next to that, there are some flaws in the story. Although the writing is good, the game loses focus once in a while and lets you LARP instead of looking for clues. Overall it's just a good popcorn game, but not more than that.

5 / 10.0 - Risk System
Aug 7, 2021

Risk System is a shmup that tries to be original but does that in a bad way. The shooting is automatic which eliminates 90 percent of the fun instantly. Besides this, you only need to evade enemies. The difficulty is very high, but the game never challenges you to try again. There are a few special attacks that make things better but still it is not really fun to play. Also, the game lacks a co-op mode which means you have to go through this all by yourself. Let's just say there are way better shmups.

Famicom Detective Club bundles two games for 60 euros. The fact that these are old games meant only for the Asian market is clearly visible. The dialogues are in Japanese and the games are clearly polished in various aspects. Still, if you like a good story or two and feel the connection with your inner detective (and have a lot of time on your hands) these games scream for you. The writing of Metroid creator Yoshio Sakamoto only justifies the price even more!

Capcom Arcade Stadium is a really cool collection of games from the past. All of the games can be played together with friends. There really is only one downside and that's the fact you can't play together online.

Yakuza Like a Dragon is a must-play for fans of the first hour. Side missions complement the main story in a major way thanks to the utter insanity of some of the stories. You'll need to have some patience though for some of the other mechanics in the game, which is disappointing.

Nickelodeon Kart Racers 2 brings a fresh new wind to karting. The game lets you play as your favorite cartoon characters like The Turtles, Ren and Stimpy, and SpongeBob. The racing part of the game is great. You can shoot other drivers with power-ups and protect yourself with them. Besides racing, you can play different modes like the Arena battle, which makes this a complete game for a lot less than the average karting game.

9 Monkeys of Shaolin is a pleasant surprise in a year full of beat 'em ups. This is not just another brawler, but one with an extensive skill tree, different fighting styles, and a lot of fun gameplay. The game is playable in offline or online co-op and in both styles the game works flawlessly. There are a few bugs here and there, but nothing worth mentioning. If you like to fight, buy this game.

2 / 10.0 - Tamarin
Sep 22, 2020

Tamarin had one thing going for it: the main character is a very cute monkey. Unfortunately, this is literally the only thing that is good in the game. The game lets you walk around with weapons, shooting all kinds of enemies, but there is no real entertainment. The game becomes boring really quickly and doesn't really know where to take you. 40 euros for this game is simply too much.

8.5 / 10.0 - Sonic Mania Plus
Jul 28, 2018

‎For the rest, few negatives can be noticed about ‎‎Sonic Mania Plus.‎‎ If you have a little bit of a warm heart for the hedgehog and aren't averse to a bite of your nostalgia, you should give Sonic Mania Plus a chance. 30 euros is not much for such a game and it looks nice in the closet.‎

For now, the question is: is the collection worth a purchase? Yes. A very thick fat yes even. The series is nicely polished and still fun to play.

9 / 10.0 - INSIDE
Jun 28, 2016

‎Still, it doesn't take away from the fact that Inside is a game that's been one of the best released this year. There are fantastic puzzles in the game and the game is for the most part a lot of fun and addictive to play. If you like Limbo, you should play it too.‎

Do you play Gears of War for single player or multiplayer? Probably a combination of both. In any case, the fact is that for 40 euros you get a top title that offers a lot of hours of entertainment if you play alone or want to do co-op. We think of that multiplayer as a dessert to a masterpiece.
