    Transport Fever 2 has some serious pros - great system of logistics, sensible industry model, pretty environments and detailed vehicles. It's a great shame that two of the game's major elements fall completely flat, effectively nullifying its advantages - the economy of the game is opaque and flawed, and there are no real game modes to play.

    I expected much less from Darksiders Genesis and I got a really pleasant surprise. What looked like a hack'n'slash, a weird version of Diablo, turned out just another Darksiders game, only isometric. Hell, I think it's even better than Darksiders III. Good stuff.

    Pokemon Sword is a good game that demands serious changes. Fights are too easy and the storyline is really dumb - Pokemon needs a dramatic overhaul in terms of mechanics. There has to be more tactics than "water beats fire". Nostalgia is one thing but being archaic is another and far less enjoyable (even though it is extremely pretty).

    For me Sniper: Ghost Warrior Contracts is one of the biggest surprises of the year. I was prepared for a rehashed Ghost Warrior 3 - a very tiresome production. Fortunately, the length and diversity of the new installment maintained my interest throughout the entire game. Contracts is definitely the best game in the series, far more enjoyable than Ghost Recon: Breakpoint.

    Disco Elysium is a truly magnificent game not just for every RPG lover out there, but for any gamer looking for something more than simple entertainment. Get ready for dozens of hours of intellectual exercise - ZA/UM's title elevates the entire gaming world, bringing the medium closer to true and meaningful art form.

    After the abberration that Rambo: The Video Game was, Teyon delivered Terminator: Resistance - not just a "cool game" in and of itself, but also the best Skynet-themed game to date. Destroying terminators is really satisfying and I'm certain that this game will be one of the biggest surprises of 2019 to some shooter lovers out there.

    Despite minor technical issues and sometimes underwhelming graphics, I had lots of fun. Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order was a trip down the memory lane; to the times when I played the best Star Wars games for the very first time. Respawn Entertainment can easily put their game on the same shelf as Jedi Outcast. The Force is strong with this one.

    It's time for a revolution. Need for Speed: Heat is definitely the best game in the current-gen series, but that's nothing to brag about. This actually should have been the first NFS for the 8th generation of consoles - then, perhaps, we would still have remembered it as something special. But at this point, the game basically just goes through the motions. Not great, not terrible.

    Stygian: Reign of the Old Ones is a treat for die-hard Cthulhu fans. The thick, heavy atmosphere of Lovecraft's stories drips out of every pixel. It's a pity that I couldn't ignore tons of bigger and smaller bugs (abysmal game stability included) that halted all the fun.

    Planet Zoo is a great tycoon made in the age where tycoon games seem extinct. And it's pretty much the best game for animal lovers. But not for every animal lover. Patient and talented builders will create new and improved parks, achieving new levels of satisfaction. Others (and by this I mean almost everybody) will become bored after a few hours.

    I have found the same joy and emotions in Death Stranding that I had experienced years ago after finishing MGS3.

    After all the "divisions" and "breakpoints," Modern Warfare seems to come from a different planet. The multiplayer harks back to the days of Battlefield 2 & 3, and the single-player campaign shows war in a mature and realistic way. Finally, we have a game that makes no allowances for a lower age rating. Call of Duty is back at the top - hands down, the best shooter on the market right now.

    It's hard to say anything more about Luigi's Mansion 3, other than "it's cool." Not everything works perfectly, but it definitely is a very good game - weird, but good. It brings fun, but not emotions. It's memorable, but it doesn't make for a good game to talk about with friends. Still, if you own a Switch, you should be happy with the purchase.

    There is much to complain about The Outer Worlds - it is mediocre from a technical standpoint, has tons of outdated features and its story and companions are acceptable at best. Fortunately, Obsidian's new title is a well-made RPG - this is a game for those who enjoy being a nameless hero who either saves the world or destroys it without any reason whatsoever, wasting time on pointless side-quests just for the XP.

    Ghost Recon: Breakpoint is huge and quite scenic at times. Unfortunately, the world is bland and empty, the mechanics are flawed, and the gameplay is more irritating than fun. The developers have cobbled together too many things, without fully realizing any of them. If you want a spec-op experience, go back to Wildlands - the last true Ghost Recon installment. Breakpoint is the first game of the Ulbimate genre by Ubisoft - an empty shell with microtransactions.

    Warsaw does not have an engaging story and compelling characters; the AI is lackluster and all the work we do seems to have no impact on the uprising. It's a pity that this, overall quite good Darkest Dungeon-clone, is downright frustrating so often. Questionable decisions from the developers denied Warsaw's path to glory.

    Wanderlust is a novelty video game. While it does use some mechanics known from more typical games, you need to keep one thing in mind if you want to give it a chance (which you should): this is first and foremost a story about travelling, in which feelings play the central role.

    Nintendo once again reaches back to the past to bring back one of its best games - the mobile adventures of a certain warrior in a green outfit. The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening is basically a brand new game that generates tons of fun even without the cult surrounding the series. If not for some technical issues, it would have been perfect.

    FIFA 20 introduces a hefty amount of novelties and pretty much all of them are successful - especially the Volta can give tons of fun. Unfortunately - the biggest flaws that have existed in the series for years are still here - painfully schematic gameplay doesn't promote creativity, and the artificial intelligence doesn't deserve the name. These elements render each FIFA a much less compelling experience.

    The Surge 2 is a solid game focused on combat - the fighting is superb, enjoyable and never becomes boring. The world is interesting, the technical aspect of the game was done competently (although there are some minor issues), and the level design, which was the most frustrating part of the previous game, was sorted out, too. About the biggest pitfall of the game is that it's a notch too easy for some.

    Borderlands 3 is a terrific looter-shooter, one of the best out there, among the best in history. The game focuses on the most important thing - the gameplay. Shooting provides tons of fun and a gigantic arsenal of weapons keeps boredom at bay. It would be pretty much perfect, if not for the technical pitfalls - the game needs fixing.

    What you feel after completing Children of Morta is not the regular nostalgia after finishing a great hack'n'slash-roguelite hybrid - it's the feeling of leaving you family and the safety of your home. A splendid game.

    Gears 5 is simply a very good game, tailored for the fans of the series. The new installment works great regardless of whether you play alone, or in coop, as well as during multiplayer battles. Sure, maybe it's not very inventive and rather similar to previous GoWs, but in this case, it's a great recommendation.

    Bloober Team definitely know their onions. Blair Witch introduces some minor tweaks to a tried and well-known formula, but there's no trace of true revolution.

    Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey is a breath of fresh air in the sandbox/survival genre. At the same time, the original atmosphere and compelling gameplay is blended with some subpar elements that ought to discourage many players - and there's too much repetitiveness.

    There are some games out there, which can only be appreciated when experienced first-hand - and Control is one of these. It has this magical ingredient that makes me want to play it again, even after beating the story.

    A few minor flaws can't ruin this truly great game. Almost everything in Age of Wonders: Planetfall has been done perfectly. The futuristic world turned out great, the satirical atmosphere is refreshing, and the combination of the best parts of Civilization and XCOM resulted in such an addictive game that the developers should warn about it beforehand.

    There are a few prerequisites you have to meet in order to enjoy Fire Emblem: Three Houses for dozens of hours: you can't be weirded out by the Japanese weird, you have to accept the unique visual style and hundreds of silly (but mandatory) conversations and activities, including fishing, growing plants and eating soup. If you think you lack at least one of the above skills, we recommend finding another game.

    A few fun moments is too little to even say that I had fun. Wolfenstein: Youngblood is a bizarre hybrid - a rail shooter with grind and endgame reminiscent of open-world games. An RPG looter-shooter without loot or real rewards. The game fails to be good at any single element it offers, and a ton of games out there is better at all of them.

    The Sinking City feels more like it is based on a Sherlock Holmes novel rather than a game inspired by H. P. Lovecraft's work. The part of the story focusing on supernatural elements is pretty weak, but side-quests more than make up for it. This game has a very strong "one more place to visit" or "one more conversation" vibe. It's clunky but effective.

    Warhammer: Chaosbane is a pretty casual hack'n'slash for players unfamiliar with the genre. The game looks pretty, but it's far too easy and repetitive, with a rather shallow storyline. Perhaps in time, Chaosbane will become better due to planned DLCs, but it looks like a considerable investment. It's a pity that we received another mediocre Warhammer game, cause it was very promising at launch.

    Total War: Three Kingdoms is worth your time. To put things in a simple way - it's a superb strategy game that deals with a relatively unknown part of history. There are no flaws in terms of gameplay mechanics - it's a great Total War game that keeps to the series' high standards and quality.

    Layers of Fear 2 is a "sightseeing horror walking simulator" that focuses on different things than games like What Remains of Edith Finch. This majestic, atmospheric game offers players a unique and bold experience, but the best features can be seen in single scenes than in the entire title.

    Rage 2 is an excellent shooter, and not much else. Want a complex story? Wrong address. Looking for an original, authentic world to explore - nope, not here. But if you want to shoot, shoot, and then shoot some more, be invincible and also crazy, then hop in - you're in for a ride.

    The developers of A Plague Tale managed to create an emotional story seasoned with stealth elements - not very demanding, as the game is really easy.

    In Days Gone I receive all features I like in video games - atmosphere, interesting characters, realism, well-made shooting, and cool stealth mechanics. Despite that Days Gone may be a real disappointment for fans of Ubisoft's open world games - there's a lot of content but it's all based on the story-driven campaign. It's a long storyline but there's nothing else to do.

    The foundations of Anno 1800 are solid, and the game offers a diversified experience. Going back to the roots was a crucial decision, and I can say, with all certainty: this is one of the best strategy games of 2019. It's been a long while since we had such a lovely and absorbing game to play.

    Assassin's Creed III Remastered offers high quality and remains a compelling experience. I have no doubt - it's the best remaster this series has gotten thus far. The developers managed to deliver more than just higher resolution, but then some aspects still seem somewhat undercooked.

    Sekiro obviously piggybacks on the Souls series, but doesn't stop there. It was a risky move, but From Software proved once again that there's no match for them.

    Despite a few setbacks, The Division 2 is a good sequel from day one and should become even better in time. It seems that there wasn't any content cut from the final version, which is by no means self-evident these days. If you didn't like the first game, you probably won't find anything of interest here. But we recommend you gave it a try anyway. The design of the city is superb and combat is genuine fun.

    We're happy to say that Devil May Cry 5 is an exceptional slasher. The combat system is great, the opponents look cool, the storyline is the best in the series, and the graphics solid, though quite often inconsistent. The veterans should be aware, however, that the game offers proper challenge only on higher difficulty levels, which are locked at the beginning.

    Anthem is a constant emotional see-saw. There is a lot of fun from flying, shooting and admiring this beautiful world, and almost as much frustration due to a surprising amount of bad ideas and issues.

    Far Cry: New Dawn is a quickly produced FC 5 with a new texture pack and some funky colors.

    Metro: Exodus requires patience during the long cut-scenes and way too extensive dialogues, but it's worth it.

    Resident Evil 2 is not only an entirely new game - it is also a great one. The sudden jump-scares are perhaps a bit unsophisticated, but they get the job done. Furthermore, the game offers a well-written story and over a dozen hours of pure fun, action, and puzzles. Amazing job.

    Assassin's Creed Rebellion looks like a game aimed at fans of the series who like to pay for things. The combat system is good. The base building system is shallow.

    Vampyre's issues lie deep within the core gameplay design. DONTNOD shouldn't have attempted to make an RPG. Vampyr would have been much better off as a shorter adventure or action-adventure production such as Remember Me. It's a great shame that this exquisite artistic vision and superb atmosphere were, in the end, squandered.

    The vision of hell introduced in Agony rivals the excellent final level of Painkiller. Unfortunately the game set in this wonderfully warped world isn't very interesting. For each upside there's at least one serious shortcoming. This controversial and ambitious game turned out to be dull and rather boring.

    Ancestors: Legacy is a strategy game full of technical issues that can totally spoil the whole experience. And yet, Destructive Creations managed to to create an interesting and fun game that's not notorious for being forcibly edgy and controversial. It is simply a good, middle-of-the-road game that offers a reasonable amount of fun.

    Learning the story of Kara, Connor and Markus in Detroit: Become Human was a pleasant and engaging affair. I really grew fond of the heroes and I pondered over every decision. Quantic Dream's new game is a really good interactive movie, and the degree of non-linearity is amazing. It's a pity that the story itself is totally bland, obvious and downright disappointing; the characters are flat and cliché, and the game doesn't deliver any meaningful message - it's almost baffling how the authors could have missed such an opportunity to make a statement.

    I had a lot of fun while playing Conan Exiles, despite the fact that playing MMO game in solo mode makes almost no sense and that you have to join a clan pretty quickly. Even though it doesn't offer anything new nor it is better than the competition, it is still a good game. Really.

    Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery has no magic. It has no fun. It almost has no game. It is a blatant money grab that soils this likable universe. If you want more Harry simply go back to one of the books or movies. There is nothing for you here.

    State of Decay 2 has a dozen of bugs, a boring start, bad optimization and a repetitive gameplay. Against all odds, the gameplay offered by the game sucked me into the world of Zombie apocalypse and I want to play it more and more. It has this "spark" that makes you keep playing the game - a cool atmosphere, satisfying combat and sense of accomplishment that comes from every performed action. It is a Zombie-Survival-Gothic.

    Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire mixes the classic epic feel from Baldur's Gate 2 with freedom of exploration from Fallout, and still offers a modern and surprising story and a great set of characters. Pretty much every element of the game has been improved. All hail the new king of classic RPGs!

    BattleTech in the form of a video game is a beautiful reference to the original board game. It's a unique tactical turn-based strategy game that sets new trends in this genre. Until competitors won't think of resurrecting other games with mechs, BattleTech is without question a master-class.

    Thrones of Britannia is a very good start of the Total War Saga series. It's not a revolutionary or an amazing title, but it has interesting and fresh elements that can attract players and gather new followers of the genre. This new approach to the brand - to make smaller and historically accurate games - makes me extremely happy.

    Northgard is a surprisingly great game. It will appeal both to fans of The Settlers series and to enthusiasts of multiplayer strategies. Additionally, it sounds nice, looks decent and it has a high replay value. Even the single-player campaign is well-made and interesting. Northgard is a great example of perfecting the use of Early Access.

    Sea of Thieves is a letdown. In its core it seems like a pleasant game for a few, or maybe a dozen hours that you can test for free by activating the Xbox Game Pass account. The cooperation in this game works really neat. But on the other hand, there are several problems like server issues and lack of content. Furthermore, the game is quite expensive.

    Give Frostpunk a chance - you'll soon find out that this is yet another ambitious project from 11 bit studios that is greater than the sum of its parts. This very atmospheric "survival strategy" deserves a success and the developers should know that they are on the right path of achieving it.

    The new God of War brings back Kratos in a superb fashion. Santa Monica studio should do the same for a potential sequel and I won’t be able to worry about my favorite hero. The game is bold in introducing some radical changes to the series’ formula but if you stop looking back you’ll know – this is an excellent game in every way.

    Yakuza 6 is not a game for everyone, but you can't deny it a certain charm. I followed a very cool storyline for many hours and I have happily frittered some time away playing various mini-games. The combat becomes repetitive after a while, but, all in all, this is a really great game.

    Pizza Connection 3 tries to do its best to emulate all the things that made its predecessor a success. Unfortunately the potential was squandered - the game has some serious technical issues, the gameplay is mediocre, the fun is bland and the difficulty level is unfairly high.

    Warhammer: Vermintide 2 is good game - nothing more and nothing less. It provides tons of fun and enters the "co-op hall of fame" without looking back. Unfortunately I can't shake off the feeling that the release was a bit rushed; the game arguably feels more like an Early Access version.
