Below we present the titles in more detailso you can decide if it’s worth downloading or not.
Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time
Crash Bandicoot 4 – It’s About Time – Everything we know about the platformer so far
- Genre: Jump ‘n’ Run
- Metacritics: 85
Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time is the direct sequel to the iconic PS1 trilogy of the cheeky bandicoot. A whole new adventure awaits you with new linear levels, new skills and new story. Crash even has fresh tricks up his sleeve now, because not only can he slow down time, but he can also reverse gravity. For this he relies on the so-called Quantum Masks, which can even talk and bring their own personality with them.
Here’s why Crash 4 is so good: The great strengths of the game include not only the wacky humor, but especially the great variety that awaits you thanks to the new Quantum masks. Bouncing through the levels with Crash’s new abilities and exploring them until the last secret is revealed is just so damn fun. Crash 4 is definitely a platformer highlight that you shouldn’t miss.
You can read more about how well Crash 4 plays in the GamePro test.
Man of Medan
Dark Pictures: Man of Medan – How did the ghost ship get so spooky? (trailers)
- Genre: horror adventure
- Metacritics: 69
In The Dark Pictures Anthology: Man of Medan, five young people really just want to take a little vacation on the high seas. But suddenly the motley crew embarks on a nerve-wracking scary trip through a ghost ship. In the cinematic adventure from the creators of Until Dawn, you will engage in dialogue, make decisions, and master quick-time events to survive and unravel the mystery of the ship.
The special thing is the co-op mode, with which you can experience the adventure online for two. There is also a local movie mode, where you pass the controller around in your group, so you experience the game like a playable movie together on the couch.
In the GamePro test, however, the game fared rather poorly. In particular, technical problems and the outrageous story spoil the horror experience. You can get more information in the Man of Medan review.
Arcadegeddon – New multiplayer shooter from the creators of Friday the 13th.
Genre: multiplayer shooter
In order to save his own arcade shop from a mega corporation, hero Gilly combines all the games into one big game, which is hacked and infected with a virus. That’s why you have to team up with other players in the third-person multiplayer shooter to save the arcade.
The co-op works with up to three friends, but it can also be played alone. With a hero of your choice you can then let off steam in either PvE or PvP:
- PvE: Sort of a horde mode, with ever new waves of enemies.
- PvP: Compete in teams of four against other players.
