Persona 5 is considered one of the best games ever for me. The style, the characters, the gameplay, the story, the variety, all this has made it a great title for me, which not only JRPGs will have to measure up to in the future. So I was all the more curious to see how Tokyo Mirage would do in comparison. Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE Encore does not quite reach the quality of Persona 5. However, it is a wonderful game for all those who like the crazy Japanese setting. The thrilling story, the varied, sometimes amusing, sometimes serious side missions, the partly quirky companions, the easily understandable and yet tactically mature combat system, the individual graphic style, which reminds of Persona and yet goes its own way and the modern soundtrack, which should not only please friends of J-Pop or K-Pop, make Tokyo Mirage one of the best roleplaying games on the Switch.

The Pedestrian is a highly creative, well-balanced and pleasantly challenging odyssey through the sign forest of a big city - and a real gem in the puzzle genre.

No Recommendation / Blank - Pokémon Sword and Shield
Jan 9, 2020

Pokémon Sword and Shield are cheaply produced, antiquated in every regard and no longer come even close to living up to the great name of the brand. "It's Pokémon" can no longer be an excuse - it's exactly the fact that it is Pokémon why it has to be more than what it is. And right now, Sword and Shield are one thing above all else: two really bad video games.

In his third appearance as a ghost hunter Luigi experiences his biggest, most beautiful and best adventure so far! Next Level Games stage an incredibly loving horror holiday with the charm of an animated film and an impressive attention to detail from beginning to end. For me, Luigi's Mansion 3 is one of the switch highlights of 2019.

Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch is a masterpiece JRPG-genre. I used to look a bit envious at Playstation 3 owners because of this title, and I'm glad I finally caught up with the game in 4K. Disappointing, however, is the lack of new additions to the remaster. New content, extras or gameplay improvements, such as more monsters or a New Game+ mode, could have convinced owners of the original to buy the remastered Version. The new version is a recommendation for all latecomers and seemingly the version to choose if you are new to the saga. Personally, I had about 60 great hours with this really beautiful game, and I am motivated to start all over, to let the unique atmosphere of the game affect me again. If you are interested in the anime of Studio Ghibli or Japanese role-playing games, Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch is an absolute must buy.

I haven't laughed so hard about a video game in a long time. The dialogue options of The Outer Worlds are pure gold! If you have the chance to have a chat with the moustached hipster drug courier in Fallbrook, you should definitely take that opportunity. Apart from the creative gags, the missions are also well staged and offer many different solutions. Rarely have I had such freedom. The world reacts to everything I do in it, and it's just fun to watch the chaos I create unfold. You can see the fine-tuning of the game and it's very clear what elements the developers have focused on. In those very areas, The Outer Worlds does everything right and with this recipe for success has secured a place in my Top 3 for 2019.

A powerful Mech construction kit, Daemon X Machina is a dream for all fans of combat robots, but as an action game it is a repetitive occupational therapy. It's a shame that the game design hasn't received as much lifeblood.

Katrielle's first adventure was well transferred to the Nintendo Switch and extended with some nice extras, but is basically a disappointing Layton, which suffers from its weak story and fluctuating puzzle quality.

That the Ghostbusters are cult, I don't need to repeat here actually. Nevertheless, the re-release of a good game after ten years left me rather cold. The graphic doesn't pull a player from his stool anymore in 2019 and even the tough ghost-hunter fan would have wished for a different remaster. The bottom line for me is only the note satisfying and the reference to the fact that in this case it's probably worth picking up the original. In the meantime, I'm looking forward to the third film and hope that this basically great series will experience its worthy restart.

Unscored - Tangle Tower
Oct 29, 2019

The game idea is traditionally good, the story interesting, the puzzles good, the ideas and loving details abundant: I was about to recommend Tangle Tower as a real alternative to Professor Layton - when the game was suddenly far too early, far too abrupt and above all over with far too many open questions and logic holes. All the work and effort that SFB Games put into character drawing and building a great mystery in the first few hours suddenly coincides like a house of cards. Maybe it was due to a lack of time or resources - after all, there aren't even any puzzles left towards the end. Tangle Towers should be a little adventure pearl with its quirky characters, high-quality presentation and good puzzles - but it stumbles over a much too early, abrupt and illogical ending.
