Technically the game is on a high level. The graphics are clean, there is only a slight edge flickering here and there and the texts are sometimes a bit hard to read. The sound is terrific and contributes wonderfully to the scary atmosphere. The immersion is fantastic! You have this oppressive feeling all the time and sometimes it runs down your back. Of course you can't miss Jumpscares, but they are cleverly placed and not too often. The first time you go through the house you need - depending on how anxious you are - about 3 to 5 hours.

Pillars of Eternity: Complete Edition is a heavyweight and can be considered a current genre reference. It is as simple as that, without beating about the bush. The enormous success and the popularity with the fans has ensured that the successor was financed just as record-breakingly and will surely be just as successful. The guys from Obsidian, who were considered the continuation pros for a long time, have shown what they can do with Pillars of Eternity. It carries the great classics like Baldur's Gate 2 in front of it, takes over strengths from there and yet brings an incredible amount of its own to not be stamped as a copy - quite the opposite. The adaption to the consoles has been successful so that you can reach more players with this masterpiece. The balancing act between modernity and nostalgia is impressively successful. Impressed already 2015 on the PC and can also the second look in 2017 on console just as convincing. Interested players will find the Pillars of Eternity: Complete Edition both as a physical retail version (distributed by 505 games) at the retailer of their choice, as well as the digital version in PlayStation Store (directly distributed by Obsidian) at a price of currently about 50 euros. This is absolutely justified, considering the two included expansions, the enormous game scope (playing time easily between 50-80 hours depending on the joy of exploration) and the successful revision for the consoles. If you also consider the total playing time of about 60 to 80 hours, depending on how extensively you deal with the game world and how much you do side tasks, Pillars of Eternity: Complete Edition is really worth its purchase price.

9.1 / 10.0 - The Evil Within 2
Oct 18, 2017

The story of The Evil Within 2 is very interesting, conclusive and especially towards the end very well told and provides many surprises throughout the story. The plot would make a good Hollywood flick. In conclusion, I'd like to say that the first Survival Horror sequel of 2014 got a more than worthy sequel. So if you want to take an oppressive horror trip through fantastic worlds, The Evil Within 2 is the perfect choice.

8 / 100 - The Sims 4
Nov 18, 2017

The Sims 4 is a very complex game. This shouldn't be surprising, the series is known for it and the various possibilities in character creation alone more than indicate this. In the course of more than seventeen years a lot has changed, the AI is quite good and the possibilities, as said before, enormously diverse. Like in real life there are many connections to consider. If the player creates a lazy Sim, he shouldn't be surprised if he loses his job after three days. If the Sim is phobic about commitment, it will be difficult to start a family. After a certain settling-in period, not least because of the controls, the Sims are quite entertaining. The player can determine the characters and their actions himself and realize his fantasies in the game. Something to fight the Sims games always have with the extreme extent of the predecessors by numerous published extensions. For example, if you have played The Sims 3 with some expansions, you will miss some things in The Sims 4, although the basic game The Sims 4 itself offers things that were not available in The Sims 3. Nevertheless The Sims 3 was in some respects a bit more extensive and well thought out. But for newcomers Die Sims 4 offers a successful entry into the series, especially on consoles. The one or the other consolero might be overwhelmed by the numerous menus (in the beginning). But don't be put off, that's the motto here.

8.5 / 10.0 - Gear.Club Unlimited
Nov 29, 2017

Gear.Club Unlimited is a clear recommendation to buy. Despite one or two weaknesses I could not get off the screen during the test and had to take forced breaks over Amazon's Alexa. More engine power here, a different color there or simply expand and rebuild the workshop. The game profits from the fast loaded and short races. So you don't even have to plan 20 minutes to get ahead in any case. The game experience is completed by the online league, where you can compete against Ghosts real opponents and get on the podium.

6.9 / 10.0 - The Inpatient
Jan 25, 2018

Unfortunately The Inpatient is not the game I had hoped for. The limited freedom of movement clouds the overall impression very much. Actually you don't get a game here, but rather an interactive movie. The dialogues seem to be very long, there are often long pauses between the sentences. And also the lame locomotion later in the game is unfortunately very annoying and artificially prolongs the already quite short pleasure with about 3 hours playing time. The Jumpscares are used too often in my opinion and the effect is unfortunately wearing off a bit. Nevertheless, the gaming experience, especially because of the great immersion, is fantastic and you start it again and again to reach all possible endings.

As a fan of Bayonetta I was very much looking forward to the release of both available parts for the Nintendo Switch. Even though the touchscreen controls won't knock anyone's socks off, you can tell that the developer has really thought about his software instead of just releasing a clumsy port for the switch, which unfortunately happens very often. The gameplay is simple, but the variety of combos is hard to master. It takes a little bit of experience to be able to react accordingly in every situation. But this is exactly what makes games of this genre. The passionate gamer with a penchant for brute action can't get past Bayonetta 2. To complete the gaming experience, Nintendo offers a fair deal for the bundle of both parts. So I recommend to every prospective customer to quit Bayonetta and then enter Bayonetta 2. Because of the co-op mode, you can always find a player online and have a lot of fun if the playing time is short. Finally, the ambitious collector of the much too expensive Amiibo can use it to good effect. Finally there is a good game that gives you an advantage, but is not too unfair to players who don't own any or only a few of the NFC figures. The whole package is a success and we can make a very clear recommendation to buy with a good knowledge and conscience!

6.9 / 10.0 - Metal Gear Survive
Mar 21, 2018

Metal Gear Survive is literally a double-edged sword, or at least it can be. Whoever approaches this with special expectations and the hope for a typical Metal Gear game will be bitterly disappointed. But if you're really up for a thrilling survival adventure and bite your way through the first few hours, i.e. the complete introduction and tutorial, you can really have fun with this game. Especially the long term motivation will be a decisive factor. The bottom line is that Metal Gear Survive is a solid title that suffers from the big name and some strange decisions in game design.

8.7 / 10.0 - Beyond: Two Souls
May 1, 2018

Once again Quantic Dream has succeeded in delivering a gripping story and integrating it into a great interactive film framework. Even after years the presentation is still in the absolute top class, thanks to the great adaptations even on the PlayStation 4. This gaming experience is not only for fans of Heavy Rain a clear recommendation worth. There is nothing more to say about it.

7.1 / 10.0 - Immortal Redneck
May 8, 2018

Immortal Redneck absolutely captivated me for several hours. The story isn't really the real thing, but a title like that doesn't need that either. I had my fun with Redneck, his dialect and appearance just fit. In the beginning I was highly motivated to find all the weapons, but unfortunately the content is quickly exhausted, but the scrolls loosen it up a bit, because with every pass there was the moment that I found a new one. That brought back the fun and motivation quickly. The talent tree is nicely built, I like this feature that you can see the tree growing in real life. Also the talents you get are not unnecessary. They feel important and in higher levels they also feel decisive for the game. The blessings bring even more depth to the game, because it makes an extreme difference in the way you play if you choose an offensive or defensive deity. All in all, I had fun with Immortal Redneck, even if I wouldn't have thought so at first, but Immortal Redneck has reached many emotional worlds of mine. I was motivated, challenged and angry. That's why I recommend the game to everyone who has fun with Roguelike titles like The Binding of Isaac or Slay the Spire and no problem with Permadeath and restarts. But you will be rewarded with new weapons and items.
