Football Drama offers an exciting concept and a sympathetic presentation. Especially after my meeting with the developer during this years Gamescom, I was really excited to see a game that depicts the whole world of football. Unfortunately the constant repetitions of the gameplay as well as the sloppy translation and missing tutorials made it a rather unsatisfying experience. If Open Lab Games improves on the last two points, I might be able to finish a few more seasons with Manager Rocco Gallianio.

Playtonic and Yooka-Laylee are successful in the second attempt and with one dimension less: The search for the Beettalions is a wonderful jump'n'run adventure that can keep up with Donkey Kong Country in its best moments and sets new standards in the genre with a great world map. What a positive surprise!

Trine 4: The Nightmare Prince brings back the Jump'n'Run series. Breathtakingly beautiful and colorful with lovingly placed details, the game grabs you from the first minute. Familiar fun jumping with our three heroes in interaction, spiced with fights, numerous puzzles and funny physics games.

Liked-a-lot - Catherine: Full Body
Sep 29, 2019

Catherine: Full Body is a moderately successful remaster. The new gameplay elements have convinced me, the help against the high difficulty is subtle but easy to reach and the many small changes in detail and the Easter-Eggs for connoisseurs of the original brought me a lot of joy while discovering them. I find it all the more incomprehensible that the graphics and textures were not screwed up again and that the voices of the characters are still asynchronous, which threw me out of the enjoyment of the story again and again. Due to the very strange mix of puzzle game and visual novel, there ist still no alternative to Catherine: Full Body and it is still a lot of fun.

Three Houses is a promising first step towards a new era for Fire Emblem, and a solid foundation for the next games to come. While it does lack challenge and depth in exploring the monastery, it excels in other areas, mostly in its rich and captivating universe, unique characters and advanced turn-based combat. The journey to the grand finale is long, but it's a memorable one that will please not just long-time Fire Emblem fans.

Liked-a-lot - Control
Aug 28, 2019

Not much expected and completely enthusiastic: That's what you want! Control pushes the right buttons for me and constantly provides me with great rewards. If you liked the mood of Max Payne 2 or Quantum Break, you're guaranteed to have fun with it. I'm glad that the developers give the setting and the universe they created plenty of air to breathe. So you can give in to the crazy world and celebrate the abstruse.

Maybe - Night Call
Jul 23, 2019

Night Call was fun for me and basically has all the necessary ingredients for an exciting experience - but the many bugs, the repetetive gameplay and the feeling that it didn't quite hit it's potential stand in the way of an unconditional recommendation. In short: Night Call runs out of fuel on a long distance.

Liked-a-lot - Etherborn
Jul 17, 2019

Whether you're walking on the ground, the wall or the ceiling, in Etherborn this is all just a matter of perspective - and the game is wonderfully built around this unique idea of shifting gravity, offering complex level design and a great sense of scale. The only question, then, is why you're doing all of this, as the overarching story doesn't explain itself very well and leaves you with more questions than answers.

Wonderful optics combined with nostalgic sounds and a very demanding driving physics provide for the almost perfect racing fun at the console.

Drag, Drop, Play - Super Mario Maker 2 builds on the great foundation of its predecessor on Wii U and expands it in any way imaginable, from new elements and settings over a brand new 3D World style to more modes and multiplayer. There's still room left for improvement, but Mario Maker 2 is a game that will eat up your time anyway - no matter whether you're playing it on a TV or using the touchscreen in undocked mode.
