8.3 / 10.0 - Far Cry 6
Oct 21, 2021

Despite the aforementioned problems and outdated graphics, Far Cry 6 captivated and enthralled me. In retrospect, the story is not bad, even if it is a little flat and a little too short or terse at crucial points. You'll notice this because I don't want to spoil anything. Gameplay, music and the voice actors make you overlook the graphics and enjoy the video game. Personally, I haven't been a fan of German dubbing before, but Far Cry 6 simply delivers and has convinced me to play in German more often. Hopefully there will be some fixes from the developer in the short term, because the permanent respawns of the enemies are quite annoying. In addition, the AI should get a little boost in general. The enemies are simply stupid and only very rarely a challenge at all. In the first few hours I had already found a handful of bugs and kept stumbling across new problems. But these are all things that are being checked and improved by the developers. Fans of the game series can easily grab this one. Those who like farming and collecting are also in good hands. I'm curious to see what content the DLCs will bring, but the current status is quite satisfactory.

WarioWare: Get It Together! is a nice collection of different microgames under time pressure. Very often I found that you have much less time to understand and master the individual games. Fortunately, there is a training mode where you can work off these disadvantages. Unfortunately, however, long-term motivation falls by the wayside. After a good three hours, the main part is done, and if you invest a few more hours afterwards, all the microgames are done at least once. The cosmetic changes also don't bring the freshness that the developer probably imagined. It would have been more interesting if each character had special skins. What the title definitely shines with, however, is the multiplayer. Online or locally, you will have fun with the creative games and crazy sceneries. For single player, the air is out very quickly and you have to think carefully about whether you want to pay the full price.

Whether big or small, pick up a controller and get going. Unfortunately, the game is currently only available online in splitscreen or a private lobby. It is currently not possible to join a public lobby with your friends. Hopefully this will be added. There is also no cross-play between the manufacturers, but only in their own ecosystem. The developer only states that there is no guarantee that "real" crossplay will be implemented. Too bad... If you can live with these limitations and want a piece of childhood, you simply have to play Hot Wheels UNLEASHED.

9.1 / 10.0 - Lost Judgment
Oct 7, 2021

If you liked Yakuza, you will definitely feel at home in (Lost) Judgment and get your money's worth. If you really want to get into the game, then play Judgment first and only then the sequel. You don't need any knowledge from the first part, but you can identify much better with the characters in some dialogues and also see how they have developed in each case. To make it clear again: You don't need to have played Judgment to follow Lost Judgment!

7.6 / 10.0 - Xuan-Yuan Sword VII
Oct 4, 2021

For me Xuan Yuan Sword 7 was a wonderful surprise, discovered shortly before release and convinced by a trailer to take a look, I was not disappointed. The game is so wonderfully unobtrusive and definitely doesn't crave the "RPG Hit 2021" trophy, and despite a fast travel system, it's so pleasantly linear. It offers pretty much all the aspects you'd expect from a role-playing game and still only has one thing in mind, which is to keep the player well entertained and I really liked that. That's why it's also a 内幕消息 for me.

8.3 / 10.0 - Tales of Arise
Sep 17, 2021

Tales of Arise captivates players from the very first minute. I was particularly taken with the cutscenes and the soundtrack. Personally, I found very long sessions tiring, because there isn't that much action, where you have to be very attentive, like in a shooter. But that's very subjective and doesn't have to be the case for everyone. The video game is definitely not only a recommendation for connoisseurs, but also suitable for complete newcomers. Once you have completed the first 10 hours, Tales of Arise gets really interesting. The beginning actually drags a bit, but it's not boring either. The combat system is easy to learn and the skill tree is self-explanatory. During matches it can get confusing, but with a few good combos you can manage that. If the enemies become too easy, your comrades will complain and you won't need to farm anymore. All in all, Tales of Arise remains a clear buy recommendation, even though only English and Japanese are supported. You don't need any prior knowledge of the Tales series and can jump right in.

8.7 / 10.0 - Samurai Warriors 5
Jul 27, 2021

Samurai Warriors 5 is the best title in the Warriors universe! I have been playing the Warriors parts since Dynasty Warriors 3 and have experienced many lows and highs. But this title has so much to offer. An exciting battle system with different weapons that can be completely customized. The story, which is very close to reality. Admittedly, not everyone will like the story around Nobunaga Oda and Mutsuhide Akechi, but if you get involved, you will get to know an important part of the 15th century in Japan. Newcomers to the Warriors series will get a wonderful introduction to the franchise. Veterans will get plenty to do thanks to the different modes to keep the game fun for as long as possible. Now it's just a matter of going into battle and helping Nobunaga Oda unify old Japan once and for all!

7.7 / 10.0 - Legend of Mana
Jul 18, 2021

I'm always happy when I hear that remakes or remasters of JRPGs will be released, and Legend of Mana was no exception. After the well-done Trails of Mana, I was in enormous anticipation, but unfortunately it was not satisfied. Legend of Mana is a role-playing game that was innovative in the area of presentation and storytelling 20 years ago. But today it can't keep up these aspects. Is it on the one hand because the style mix of new backgrounds and old sprites really harmonize in my opinion, on the other hand also because of the weak protagonist. With this character, I never felt as if he had a purpose or development in the game. What saves the story, however, are the wonderful supporting characters. The charming characters, were able to keep me glued to the game even over a long period of time. It should also be noted that although the main plot is missing, the short stories were convincing. For gamers who don't have much time to follow a long story, this aspect is convincing. Exciting stories can be experienced again and again in small bites. All in all, you have to have a love for old JRPGs and innovative ideas to like Legend of Mana. But if you get involved, you'll experience a smorgasbord of different stories and loving characters in a good forty hours.

Mario Golf: Super Rush joins the ranks of Nintendo's various simulation games. Even though the title has more simulation aspects than other representatives, like Mario Kart or Mario Football, the game is fun. However, with Battle Golf, you get the typical and insane gameplay presented. When it comes to the adventure mode, I would have liked to see more variety in terms of character selection. It's all well and good if you can experience the adventure with your Mii, but I would have been more pleased if I could go on this journey with Warluigi. But in the end, you only get real fun when you play with several people. Mario Golf: Super Rush offers both online mode and local co-op. These modes are well done and do what you expect. All in all, golf fans will get their money's worth and have a lot of fun with the title. However, if you have nothing to do with golf, it will be difficult to enjoy the game.

8.7 / 10.0 - Scarlet Nexus
Jul 5, 2021

Scarlet Nexus is, simply put, an awesome game! An exciting story, two different perspectives, fun gameplay and different powers. I haven't played a JRPG that was this much fun in a long time. Of course, I can't neglect the negative aspects either. I would have liked to have an open world. A world where I can travel with Kasane different villages and cities and understand the story around the world better. Also, the cutscenes and the presentation are often very halting, which worsens the storyline by quite a bit. All in all, if you like JRPGs with hack and slash elements, you'll enjoy it. I also think that Scarlet Nexus could be a hot candidate for game of the year!
