Operencia: The Stolen Sun shows how a really compelling game can be created with rather simple methods. It's doesn't really exceed in any area, but Zen Studios makes the best out of every element it uses. Combat is demanding, exploring is fine and the puzzles are varied and logical. The world is beautiful and also the Switch port deserves praise.

69 / 100 - In Other Waters
Mar 31, 2020

I like In Other Waters and wish I could give it a higher score. It's a nice experience. Its a special and experimental experience - however, it's an experience that is flawed in too many ways and the title torpedos itself again and again. Also, I can't always follow the story. This could have been my game of the year but bugs in the Switch version and confusing elements don't let it be.

The idea behind Disaster Report 4: Summer Memories is pretty good, but it can't unfold its potential: On the one hand it's telling you that your choices matter, on the other hand it's just a linear game without any real consequences. It seems that even it's techniques are from the olden days, especially on the scripting part and the uninspired NPC who are still doing what they were doing before the world collapsed. Nonetheless, the design of the characters is great and the soundtrack is amazing, but none of these two things will help Disaster Report 4: Summer Memories to become a blockbuster.

Lost Words: Beyond the Page is a fresh experience when you look at its narration, gameplay and story. It's visually beautiful and combines two stories in a very creative manner. It also depicts the creative process very well. But every story needs a good editor - there are some annoying mistakes in the German translation and some mechanics don't work as intended. Also, the game doesn't seem to be too optimized for the powerful Stadia platform. Google's acquired a good game as a timed exclusive, however, time for polishing was obviously missing.

Many other games can learn a lot from A Plague Tale: Innocence. It features a superb story with realistic characters and nice coming-of-age parts as well as a world with a superb atmosphere. While there are some mechanic hiccups here and there, gameplay is a well-done mix of the elements and remains fresh. There's also a top-notch visual and technical quality that I would like to see in more games.

50 / 100 - SYMMETRY
Mar 26, 2020

I had fun with Symmetry even with the controls making me furious. Somehow ... Symmetry plays like a part of something bigger, like a demo of a game that could turn out great. Somewhere, there has to be a big DLC that brings the actual content ... or not? It's nice for one playthrough, but I don't see a real reason to play Symmetry ever again.

81 / 100 - Iron Danger
Mar 23, 2020

Iron Danger prides itself in its combat and time manipulation system. It does so well deserved. The game's second highlight is the wonderful world. Levels are small, but varied and just beautiful. It's a pity there aren't more interaction possibilities outside of combat and that the narrating remains rather dull. Friends of tactical gameplay (and great worlds) shall take a look at Iron Danger!

94 / 100 - Persona 5 Royal
Mar 17, 2020

Persona 5 Royal does nearly everything right: It's a huge RPG with an interesting setting and a superb story that catches you from the first minute. It has an unbelievable amount of complex system that work perfectly together. Translations are a first in the Persona series and will make the series gain a bigger audience - which is well deserved. You can spend hundreds of hours with the thieves and it doesn't get boring!

90 / 100 - Half Past Fate
Mar 15, 2020

Do you know how it is to read a really, really good book and you're sad when it ends? When you flip the last page and would like to have the same experience all over again? This is how Half Past Fate works. It's a videogame that feels like a really good novel. For me, it's a nearly perfect experience that I won't ever forget.

85 / 100 - The Longing
Mar 9, 2020

I love being alone in The Longing. I love that it's a game that decelerates. I love that it's a game that makes me care for myself, for example wanting me to just a read a book for a few hours. Everyone looking for a quiet and caring game should have a look at The Longing.
