9 / 10.0 - Hogwarts Legacy
Feb 6, 2023

A new adventure in the Wizarding World has seemed like an excellent idea for years and Avalanche Software has proven with gusto what is possible. Players are treated to an extensive story with a completely new cast of characters, a beautiful world full of content and a battle system that is strongly put together.

Warhammer 40,000: Darktide is the 40K-version of the Vermintide games and Fatshark delivers again a fantastic co-op experience. The combat feels visceral and meaty and is a true upgrade compared to the former games. There are however a lot less classes, even though they all feel unique. Some features are clearly removed during production, so hopefully they will get added next to more classes. Fatshark has already released some updates, so the future is looking bright for Darktide.

Marvel's Spider-Man Remastered is as good on PC as it was on PlayStation. In fact, the many graphics options and support for different controls arguably make it better. There are a few unfortunate bugs, but those can't hold the excellence of Insomniac's take on our friendly neighborhood Spider-Man back.

8 / 10.0 - F1 22
Jun 27, 2022

F1 22 can fall back on a solid foundation that Codemasters has further developed. The career modes are like a house and there is also plenty to do online. With the new options, a Grand Prix also feels a bit more realistic, especially if you put on VR glasses. So F1 22 is certainly not the revolution players might have hoped for, but for Formula 1 fans there's plenty to keep you entertained this year.‎

With the next-gen version Rockstar has brought us the ultimate version of Grand Theft Auto 5. The graphics have been improved a lot, the loading times are much faster and the PS5-version even has a couple of features for the DualSense controller. The question, however, is whether you want to replay the same adventure again, as there is no new content, nor any improvements or additions to the gameplay. A version purely made for newcomers or true fans of GTA 5.

‎Ubisoft Sofia has delivered such a big expansion with Dawn of Ragnarok that it can almost be seen as a new game. Especially since the story of Eivor does not continue, but rather the saga of Odin is told. During the approximately fifteen-hour story you will encounter some missions that feel familiar, but it should not spoil the fun.‎

9.8 / 10.0 - Elden Ring
Feb 28, 2022

‎The ambition for Elden Ring was great at FromSoftware, but the Japanese developer has fulfilled all the promises and added to that. All the lessons that the studio has learned in the past year have come together in one game and can rightly be called the Magnum Opus from FromSoftware.‎

9 / 10.0 - Deathloop
Sep 13, 2021

Deathloop proves that the concept of Groundhog Day also works in games. The story is phenomenal, mostly thanks due to the excellent voice-acting. Arkane focuses again on stealth, but also gives the play more options for all-out warfare, with a plethora of guns, special powers, and upgrades. The stay on Blackreef Island can get a little bit repetitive after multiple time loops, but the island itself is beautifully crafted, and the ending makes it all worth it. Arkane once again hit it out of the park!

8 / 10.0 - No More Heroes 3
Aug 27, 2021

No More Heroes is finally back with it's third part and it's a typical game for the franchise. The bossfights are insanely good, the humour is black and over-the-top and the whole game oozes with style. The return of the boring open world is a mystery however and not every joke is super-effective. If you can't wait to put yourself in the shoes of Travis Touchdown again however, you can't miss No More Heroes III!

With The Siege of Paris Ubisoft delivers another excellent expansion for Assassin's Creed Valhalla. The main story line is diverse and much more than just a siege, Paris and the surrounding areas are beautifully crafted and rats are an interessant new mechanic - altough not always executed that well.

The Elder Scrolls Online: Blackwood offers a lot of new content, just like previous chapters for the popular MMO. The storyline and new region feels a bit less special than heavy-hitters like Elsweyr and Summerset and the expansion doesn't offer any new classes and skill lines. It's not a bad chapter, but it's by far the weakest expansion for ESO so far.

Wrath of the Druids is an excellent first DLC for Assassin's Creed Valhalla. The expansion offers a challenging new enemy, a comprehensive story, and a beautiful country to explore. Not everything is perfect, but if this is the benchmark for future DLC, then players will be very happy!

World of Warcraft is already 15 years old, but you won't notice that playing Shadowlands. The new expansion offers interesting new customization options through the Covenants, the new areas look stunning and Torghast adds a new challenge for players. While there is more focus on the story, it does mean a much more linear experience however and the new antagonist, The Jailer, hasn't convinced us yet. Hopefully, that changes as Shadowlands gets new content updates, such as the upcoming raids.

Mafia Definitive Edition is how a classic game should be remade. It keeps the soul of the original and pulls the title back into the modern era of games. The amazing story is kept intact with only a couple of changes here and there, including a totally new cast of voice actors. It's only a pity that the new version of Paulie is not up to snuff. Besides that, however, Hangar 13 has done an amazing job to introduce the original Mafia to a new audience and the game deserves to be played.

The Fallout 76 Wastelanders update might be the salvation of the game. The free expansion finally adds NPCs to the world and adds a lot of new content. Bethesda also improved the graphics, in particular the lighting system. It's still not technically perfect however and the new additions come with their own problems. Still, the Wastelanders update is a giant leap for Fallout 76.

Elder Scrolls Online Greymoor is the next chapter in the impressive MMO. The new story is dark, which is strengthened by the cold province of Skyrim and the impressive Dwemer city of Blackreach. It might not feature a new class or skill line, but the new Vampire skill line and the Antiquities system make it worth your while. Add the challenging harrowstorms, new dungeons and the Trial and it's strong package that we can highly recommend to every ESO player.

Monster Hunter World Iceborne is an expansion by the book. There is tons of new content, including exciting new monsters, weapon and armor sets. The Clutch Claw and new attacks add to the gameplay and are really needed for the challenging Master Rank quests. On PC the new areas look even better, including support for widescreen. We still recommend however to avoid mouse and keyboard. If Capcom can keep this quality up, the franchise has a bright future ahead.

Red Dead Redemption 2 on PC is everything that the console version was but better, although with some caveats. The controls are improved with mouse and keyboard, but are still a bit clunky. The graphics are breathtaking, but it does requires a beefy PC and there are some technical problems. If you can run it however, it's one of the best games the platform has to offer.

Thanks to a mix-and-match of different genres Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is the best Star Wars-game is years. Combat and traversal is challenging and diverse, puzzles will require your brain and Force powers are cleverly used in every part of the game. Besides all that it even provides a more than decent story for fans of the franchise.

9 / 10.0 - The Outer Worlds
Oct 22, 2019

Obsidian Entertainment has created a hefty laundry list of RPGs, and it's noticeable that they've learned from previous titles. For example, fans of Fallout: New Vegas will see a lot of elements return, and as far as we're concerned, that's a good thing. The game offers an extensive main story that will keep you sweet for 25 to 30 hours, lots of side missions with countless choices and delicious black humor. The amount of planets could only be a little bigger as far as we're concerned and the combat feels a bit clunky at times, but that shouldn't spoil the fun. The Outer Worlds is Obsidian Entertainment's best RPG to date.
