Jul 7, 2021

The wild mix from the previous games and the more action-packed approach make for a high replay value, which is why the game can be recommended almost without reservation.

It is a delight to see this unusual masterpiece get a second chance! NieR shines in new splendor and new gameplay quality in this lavish new edition - and remains just as thrilling, fascinating and meaningful as on the first day.

If you like calm management simulations and don't need enemy units that shoot up your laboriously built settlements, you'll certainly be in good hands here.

The dull gameplay, the same old fights, and the absolute overabundance of enemy waves took the fun out of Necromunda: Hired Gun for me relatively early on. The premise looked good, the inspiration of the developers is clear, but the execution leaves obvious flaws. Even though the arenas and levels are beautifully designed and could vary so much despite being permanently underground, it's the gameplay in particular that makes the agile shooter and thus breaks its neck.

Worth your time - Lost Words: Beyond the Page
May 31, 2021

Light and shadow are close together in Lost Words: it tells a touching and tangible story of a young girl's life and embeds it in a gorgeous diary style - but then gets lost in a superfluous and boring sub-story that makes half of the game seem like filler.

Worth your time - Spacebase Startopia
May 28, 2021

A game for fans of the original who want to experience the classic in a modern way. With many strengths but also very many weaknesses of the original - and some that have been newly added.

Liked - Maskmaker
Apr 27, 2021

Maskmaker was a nice trip, even if the game's premise doesn't outlive its duration. The quest for new components made sense as a fresh idea at first, but felt a bit like a grind from halfway through the story. The environments, which aren't particularly varied from that point on, do their part to wear out soon enough. Nonetheless, messing around with resources, making new masks and decorating them, and exploring the very pretty worlds was always fun. I'd love to bite into the fluffy-looking trees in the mountains - they look like cotton candy. And the walk on the beach made me realize how much a vacation would be needed. White sand underfoot, palm trees close by, and collecting shells. At least in VR, I was able to catch up on that thanks to Maskmaker.

Liked-a-lot - Loop Hero
Mar 31, 2021

Behind the retro presentation there is a complex, fun and, above all, time-consuming game that cleverly combines familiar game mechanics and turns them on their head. The grind and the hunt for fresh loot is challenging and gripping. The few characters in the game are charming and make you want more, and especially as the game progresses, the complex mechanisms open up and you are caught up in the rush of the loops. However, it's a pity that all this is hidden behind a deliberately minimalistic presentation, which leaves something to be desired in the details.

Bravely Default II doesn't deliver more than the bare minimum on all levels - gameplay-wise, technically, narratively and musically - and is thus, despite a still excellent job system, unfortunately one thing above all: generic.

Liked-a-lot - Persona 5 Strikers
Feb 26, 2021

When I first saw the pictures of Persona 5 Strikers almost 2 years ago, at that time still under the name Persona 5 Scramble, I was quite skeptical at first. Can an action game match the quality of the role-playing game? Will it do justice to the characters? Will the story take too much of a back seat? What about the battle system? And what part do the different personas play? My worries should be unfounded. Because Persona 5 Strikers convinces almost all along the line. The story is excitingly told, the fights are challenging, varied and enhanced by important features of the Persona franchise, the graphic style is unique and the soundtrack burns itself into the brain. Only the lack of overview in combat in rare cases and the lack of socializing as well as the development of personal relationships among the characters ensure that Persona 5 Strikers unfortunately "only" makes it to a very good game and not a "Game of the Year" contender like Persona 5 (Royal) did with ease.
