Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League is everything you don't want from a live-service looter shooter. Even though the gameplay is alright, the diversity in the missions is almost non-existent, which makes the game very monotone and bland. The characters and story did get a few laughs out of me and proves that Rocksteady still has some worthwhile stories to tell, but in the end it's not enough to keep me going for endless hours.

Nov 15, 2023

In short, Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3 doesn't honor the title it has been given. The campaign is just plain bad, multiplayer mainly banks on your nostalgia with the return of classic maps, and zombies is just the DMZ mode from Warzone but with zombies roaming the map. Gameplay is mostly what you would expect from Call of Duty but seems to have some inconsistencies. You can still have some fun with the title, but it's painfully obvious that this should have been an expansion for last year's MW2.

9.2 / 10.0 - Forza Motorsport
Oct 26, 2023

The reboot of Forza Motorsport delivers a great racing experience with more than enough content to keep you sated for a very long time. Even though it's not necessarily a reboot, Forza Motorsport improves on all its predecessors by doing even more things right, while delivering some new experiences along the way. With its highly addictive systems and refined gameplay, Forza Motorsport is a racegame that you simply can't miss.

6 / 10.0 - EA Sports FC 24
Sep 29, 2023

EA Sports FC 24 doesn't deliver on the changes the name change would suggest. In the end it's still FIFA, but with a few new things to enjoy. Unfortunately that also means this game is plagued by the same issues that have plagued the FIFA-franchise for years like pay-to-win in FUT, weird situations in Career Mode and multiple bugs that have been there since the dawn of time. Some cool new elements like Evolutions in FUT give a little bit of redeeming quality, but overall it's not great.

9.4 / 10.0 - Diablo IV
May 30, 2023

Blizzard actually pulled it off. Almost all the elements click correctly in the latest part of Diablo. The story, the characters, the dungeons, the endless possibilities with your character, the open world and much more, it works exceptionally well together. That does not mean that the game is completely flawless, because Diablo IV suffers from problems that games of this size often have.

Destiny 2: Lightfall hits a lot of great notes. The new subclass, Strand, is very cool to use and gives you a lot of new movement options. Neomuna is a true sight to behold and invites players to explore. The most important part of the expansion however is the campaign and even though it has a lot of amazing and cool moments, the story falls short. Lightfall offers up more questions while we should have been getting some answers.

6.5 / 10.0 - Atomic Heart
Feb 20, 2023

Atomic Heart offers an unique style and atmosphere with exciting gameplay and an incredible soundtrack. The game, however beautifully crafted, falls short in various departments. The protagonist is absolutely awful and shows no interest in all the stuff that is going on in the world of Atomic Heart. That also leads to not really wanting to explore the world to find all the secrets, because the protagonist just doesn't care.

6.5 / 10.0 - FIFA 23
Sep 29, 2022

FIFA 23 is trying to give new footballing experiences to players, but falls short on many levels. Graphically the game is extremely impressive and the new match day experiences add a new sensation when stepping on the pitch. However, the problems of old, like janky animations and general slowness, are still present in the gameplay and keep frustration alive. All these things make FIFA 23 a mixed bag of awe and annoyances.

Simply put, Destiny 2 The Witch Queen makes Destiny 2 finally what it should have always been. With improvements in almost every area, a brilliantly crafted setting, and an exceptional story, Bungie is reaching new heights with Destiny 2. It's just a bit of a shame that two ‎‎subclasses‎‎ are now in danger of disappearing into obscurity, but bungie is already working on that.‎

5 / 10.0 - Battlefield 2042
Nov 18, 2021

Battlefield 2042 definitely isn't the Battlefield to rule all Battlefields, quite the contrary. The newest shooter from DICE fails to capture what made past Battlefield titles successful and unique. Add to that a myriad of problems that ruin the entire experience and you have a recipe for disaster. Luckily there is still Battlefield Portal which gives us the tools to create a Battlefield that we want. There is still a lot of potential for the future, but right now Battlefield 2042 isn't in a good state.

8 / 10.0 - Back 4 Blood
Oct 11, 2021

Turtle Rock Studios has once again created a fantastic co-op shooter with Back 4 Blood. The game is good when playing solo, but amazing when playing with three friends. The gameplay, characters, and card system make the game dynamic and create another dimension for us to enjoy. These things are so great, making the cookie-cutter story and the repetitiveness of the environments just a bit more painful and unfortunately, these elements hold the game back.

6 / 10.0 - FIFA 22
Sep 27, 2021

FIFA 22 offers a lot of new elements on next-gen. Gameplay is finally going in a clear direction and provides a clear picture of what to expect from this iteration of FIFA. Even though the gameplay finally seems fine, there are quite a few problems. Career is near unplayable thanks to loads of bugs and glitches, Ultimate Team is still a pay-to-win fest and a lot of modes are clearly less important than cash cow Ultimate Team, which is understandable, but still frustrating.

Mass Effect Legendary Edition offers a substantial upgrade over the original trilogy, even though the gameplay is still a bit outdated to today's standards. The trilogy still has a brilliant story and the deep RPG experience that Bioware became famous for. With around 100 hours of content, ridiculous replay value, and a cast of unforgettable characters Mass Effect Legendary Edition is a must-play for every fan of science-fiction and RPGs.

Destruction Allstars provides an interesting experience for a short time. The game doesn't have a lot of variation and lacks quite a bit of content. Since it's a free PS Plus game right now it's worth it to check it out, but if you have to pay full price for this game it's better to leave it on the roadside. Especially because of the shady microtransactions that are present in the game, which give an extra bitter taste to an experience that isn't amazing, to begin with.

6.5 / 10.0 - Cyberpunk 2077
Dec 16, 2020

Cyberpunk 2077 is, in all regards, a brilliant RPG. It offers everything you want but comes short in a few areas. The AI is dumber than a stump and police spawns are all over the place. Aside from that, the game would be near perfect if it wasn't for the many bugs and crashes you will encounter during playing. The game was released too soon and unfortunately, it's painfully obvious.

The remaster of Spider-Man's 2018 adventure offers a range of impressive graphical upgrades but offers little extra compared to the PS4 original. The new Peter Parker is a welcome change for long-time Spider-Man fans as his looks come closer to the version we know from the comic books. Aside from that, the only thing that holds this game back is that it's only available if you buy the Miles Morales Ultimate Edition. A true shame for new players.

Age of Empires III: Definitive Edition captures what makes the original game great, however, it also constantly reminds us that it isn't as great as its older brother. All the upgrades can't hide that the game is outdated, but it's still extremely addictive and fun to play.

Paradox has done it again. Once again they have created a brilliant grand strategy game. From murdering a child for their empire to forging your own religion, Crusader Kings III offers nearly limitless possibilities to define your dynasty. Truly a masterpiece!

Saints Row The Third Remastered offers the same as its original game but with a new virtual paintjob. This, however, does not mask the problems the original game had, which is definitely a shame and holds back the game in multiple ways. Where the game is not held back is in the department of fun and humor, as is known from the Saints Row franchise. The game truly comes to its right as a co-op game, but is still enjoyable as singleplayer.

9 / 10.0 - DOOM Eternal
Mar 17, 2020

The feeling that id Software really looked at what made the first DOOM games good is nice. With DOOM Eternal, they have created a game that is not only good for the current standard of games, but also looks back very respectfully at what made the past so good. The combination of these makes for a success formula that we will hopefully see more of in the future. There are more ways than ever before to take on the mortally challenged army.
