Mishap 2: An Intentional Haunting Collector's Edition Icon
Nice little game
by Avarchillion, Germany - Apr 5th 2016

Very nice little game with the interesting addition that you can search for ghosts in with a different view on every screen.

All together, the whole thing works very well and every game mechanism does so too.

Machinarium Icon
A beauty
by Avarchillion, Germany - Apr 5th 2016

This truly is a beautiful game. The hand painted sceens are a joy to behold and everything seems to fit together very well.
The only thing that makes the game fall short of a 5 star review are these two facts:
1. Its just too short - too little game time.
2. some of the puzzles are only solvable with a walkthrough.

Borderlands 2 Icon
Co-op fun like nothing else
by Avarchillion, Germany - Apr 5th 2016

Well this game is everything a Co-op shooter should be. Flashy graphics, nice weapon handling, cool and distinct characters, quest sharing and everything else.

If you want to have a good time playing Co-op, play this Borderlands 2.

Great Monster Trouble Icon
Works
by Avarchillion, Germany - Apr 5th 2016

Well this is a average tower defence game with ok graphics and nice gameplay. The difficulty rises pretty quickly and so I have never been able to finish this game.

Worlds of Magic Icon
Master of Magic in 3D
by Avarchillion, Germany - Apr 5th 2016

Well as the title states, this game is the old master of magic in 3D. All the good things of original can be found here. So if you liked Master of Magic, you will like this game too.

The only "problem" with this new version is the only thing they have changed form its predessor - the 3D graphics. They are nicely done and pretty colorful but tragically this really, to a degree at least, takes away the easy overview you had in the old Master of Magic. It is now way more difficult not to overlook a crucial mapicon.

Chocolatier 3: Decadence by Design Icon
Sweet, sweet chocolate
by Avarchillion, Germany - Apr 5th 2016

Ah, this is a game for everyone who loves chocolate. Just the unique creations you can make by combining different incrediants have inspired me to try stuff like that in real life.

This is just simply a game I can enjoy whole heartily.

Dungeons 2 Icon
THIS IS IT!
by Avarchillion, Germany - Apr 5th 2016

Yes! Finally! YAY!
Finally someone made a new and even better version of the old masterpiece Dungeon Master. This time around you do not only battle underground in your own dungeon but also above the ground, taking cities and wiping out enemy strongholds. :-)
The story is so filled with puns and jabs at the fantasy genre that there were missions where I had trouble concentrating on the mission objective because I just couldn´t help laugthing.

In summation: I endorse this game!

Battlestations: Midway Icon
Nice try in simulation
by Avarchillion, Germany - Nov 27th 2014

Well, this game really tries to simulate the complex World War II warfare. As far as games go, the game seems to find the balance between simulation and playabillity.
Sometimes the controls are rather strange, but one can get used to it.

Anyway, this game is good, but you have to give it a bit of time to get used to the controls. Be prepared to replay some of the missions over and over again.

BioShock 2 Icon
Finally a BIG daddy!
by Avarchillion, Germany - Nov 27th 2014

Even though this game is rather similar to the first Bioshock, it still is great and fun to play. The story, again, plays out in the underwater city of rapture where uncontrolled DNA experimantation has turned most people into insane mutants.

For the first time you play as a Big Daddy to save the little girls that are being used to harvest 'adam'.

Anyway if you want to know more of the incredible story, play for yourself.

DOOM 3 Icon
The Beginning
by Avarchillion, Germany - Nov 27th 2014

Or in other words: The first game that successfully used bump mapping and displacement textures.

This game is a beautiful and scary shooter that really everyone should have played at least once in their life.

Endless Legend Emperor Pack Icon
Wow, just wow!
by Avarchillion, Germany - Nov 27th 2014

Really this game has it all:

- Civilization-like settling and city building.
- Tactical combat.
- Research that actually is vital to your civilization.
- Army equipment editor.
- Diplomacy (even though that feature is maybe the weakest point in this game)
- Quests
- Extremely different playing factions.
- Science-Fantasy setting that gets a lot of its lore from the world of Endless Space.

Together Endless Legend is one of those games that anyone who has interest in roundbased strategy should buy and play.

Tasty Planet - Back for Seconds Icon
Tastes like vertigo
by Avarchillion, Germany - Nov 27th 2014

What can I say about this game?

You play a strange little blob that eats and eats and eats and eats and eats.

While the blob it eating he grows and grows and grows and grows and grows.

This doesn´t sound like much but is in fact fun and sometimes really difficult (because you have a time limit on each of the levels). A waring though: I know someone who got vertigo from playing this fast paced game.

Batman: Arkham Asylum Icon
Finally a good Superhero game!
by Avarchillion, Germany - Oct 13th 2014

Yep that about says it. This is a good superhero game.
I never thought I´d see the day this would happen but here it is. :-)

Anyway, if you like the caped crusader in his best dark knight persona, if you like dystopic cyberpunk settings, battling strange and weird enemies with a hero that takes himself very seriously and much much more, than you have to buy this game.

Trust me, you wont regret it.

BioShock Infinite Icon
Unbelievable
by Avarchillion, Germany - Oct 13th 2014

What can I say? This game is beyond words to describe. It is ... it is ... hm ...
It is fantastigantic? supermegatonic?

In about 20 years of gaming this is the most beautiful game I have ever played. Even the graphic setting, style and fell of this virtual world is like a strange dream, that when you wake up you can only remember in a loose mix of serene pictures and story fragments.

Buy it! :-)

The Wolf Among Us Icon
Storytelling like it should be
by Avarchillion, Germany - Oct 11th 2014

This game is like watching a great movie in which you control the main plot developments. Anyone who likes a comic-style, a bit melodramatic and very well thought out story with a bunch of twists and turns, should definitively buy this game.

Star Wars The Force Unleashed: Ultimate Sith Edition Icon
Nice but not perfect
by Avarchillion, Germany - Oct 11th 2014

This is a stylish but simple hack & slash game set in the great Star Wars universe.
Character development is simple and a bit bland, but the combat mechanics are fun.
The game is a bit short but for the time it lats, its fun to play.

Football Manager 2014 Icon
Football simulation in perfection
by Avarchillion, Germany - Oct 11th 2014

This game is Football simulation as it should be. The content size is gigantic, the player development realistic on a level that is startling (sometimes I find a young unknown player that I nurture up to become a star only to see this same player come from obscurity to superstardom in real life a few years later).
And that is the great asset of this game: the incredibly researched playerdatabase. The game developers have their own player scouts in every major league in this world that rate all the players, even young amateurs over the course of years. The resulting database of players is so good that more and more actual pro-clubs are using it for their own scouting.
Anyway, everyone who would like to have a game that resembles the reality of modern day football better than any other game out there, should definitively buy this one.

Endless Space - Emperor Edition Icon
Space Strategy like Master of Orion
by Avarchillion, Germany - Oct 11th 2014

If you like games were you control a specific race and try to conquer the world (in this case the universe), you will like this game. You control every aspect of your society, from colonization of planets (even the buildings and facilities on said planets), to research projects, diplomacy, the hire of heroes and of course rather cool space warfare.
I love the game and have sunk hours and hours of playtime in it.
