    The gameplay tries to accomplish too many things at once and would use more simplicity in exchange for a more interesting, unique story. [04/2020, p.82]

    The game almost plays itself, which is a shame. It’s still made well enough to keep players engrossed in the mystery and scared of the Ripple Man. [04/2020, p.80]

    Rather a form of interactive relaxation than a real challenge Tank Mechanic Simulator caters to a niche group of gamers who unfortunately won’t look past its shortcomings in graphics, irritating walks with metal detector or long loading times. [04/2020, p.79]

    Speaking Simulator is hilarious and well written. The game’s mechanisms constantly evolve and the whole thing is short enough just not get tedious – except for maybe a bit of the grind at the very end. [04/2020, p.78]

    A Shakespearean tragedy. [04/2020, p.76]

    It’s just alright choice for a pizza evening with friends in front of a TV and console. [04/2020, p.74]

    Despite its dark theme the game gets more fun by the minute and the ‘Hellboy’ and ‘Sin City’ inspired graphics are as pleasant to look at as the soundtrack is to listen to. [04/2020, p.72]

    A bold, 10-year old experiment in sliding and shooting in which the sliding part definitely aged better. [04/2020, p.69]

    • 95 Critic Score
    The perfectly designed moves and combos, including iconic Witch Time, seem to have never aged a day. Apart from the somewhat dated color grading, Bayonetta is an action game classic. [04/2020, p.68]

    The game’s strength lies in its simplicity. The Pedestrian keeps evolving up until the end and the graphics are both very clear and very pleasant to look at. [04/2020, p.66]

    A positive surprise in the metroidvania genre. Although it’s not overly complex and the game needs some time to find its own tempo. [04/2020, p.64]

    It’s more a Mutant Year Zero’s cosplay of XCOM than a truly original game but it still offers somewhere between 10-20 hours of enticing tactical gameplay. [04/2020, p.62]

    It seems like the writers had solid ideas for the beginning and the end of – but not quite for the middle of the story. Ultimately it is very straightforward, lacks twists and false leads. [04/2020, p.60]

    It’s a pleasant thing for short gaming sessions, and a rather solid game from the technical standpoint. It could use more narrative polish and quest variety though. [04/2020, p.58]

    I dreamt of the next Dark Messiah of Might & Magic and I got Elderborn. It has been a long time since I spent two nights in a row playing a game and there’s only multiplayer mode that’s lacking here. [04/2020, p.56]

    It’s quite interesting and challenging the first time you play it but each subsequent playthrough quickly gets repetitive. Well written but not well enough to recommend. [04/2020, p.55]

    While it starts exceptionally strong, towards the end the game gets boring and the finale seems as creative as something I myself could have written in ten minutes. [04/2020, p.52]

    Apart from lots and lots of missteps and bugs I can see the developers’ passion and a whole lot of hard work poured into the game. [04/2020, p.48]

    Teenage me probably would have spent all of his free time in the editor as he has years ago in The Games Factory. It’s a shame that such magnificent program, that could have easily conquered the world of PC editors, is locked to the PS4 environment. [04/2020, p.42]

    While I hoped for a more narrative-centric experience this time, thanks to a plethora of new mechanics The Last Autumn is still a great add-on that enriches both the gameplay and Frostpunk’s lore. [03/2020, p.80]

    It’s a classic initiation story. Unfortunately the quantity of content wins over its quality so it may seem that the game drags on while simultaneously being too short. [03/2020, p.78]

    It should have been a remaster but it actually is just polishing an old junk. Ineptly. [03/2020, p.76]

    If you have already finished the base game, Mandate of Heaven is a fantastic way to go back playing. The DLC surprises witch new mechanics, adds over ten hours of brand new gameplay experience and makes each playthrough of the main campaign unique. [03/2020, p.74]

    It’s rather short but if you still long for Portals maybe this one could fill the void in your heart. [03/2020, p.73]

    • 75 Critic Score
    A rather simple RPG doused in Slavic folklore and an absolutely phenomenal soundtrack that marries Slavic and Balkan sounds in one big genre experiment. [03/2020, p.70]

    In comparison to rather modest predecessors Zombie Army 4 is a true giant. Such that sometimes all of its splendour gets a bit tiresome. [03/2020, p.66]

    I may be some nine years late to this party but I’ll reiterate the opinions of countless reviewers before me – To the Moon is a writing excellence and most of all – a truly unique experience. [03/2020, p.64]

    Some of the fights seem too repetitive but many of the game’s shortcomings are made up for by its fantastic atmosphere of the original anime. [03/2020, p.60]

    Most of the time the gameplay is irritating, sometimes it just makes you mad. And it’s a shame because the developers do try to take the sport quite seriously with all the different authentic game mechanics. [03/2020, p.59]
    • CD-Action
    • 72 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    I value the game for its non-linearity and many endings but mainly for the gravity of its theme and how the history – unpleasant as it is – was depicted. [03/2020, p.56]
