Wolfenstein: The New Order offers you a lot in this aspect. You have a huge arsenal of knives, rifles, grenades, sniper rifles, shotguns and pistols. You can modify these weapons with silencers or laser sights. However, the beauty of the gameplay is the fact that you can shoot two weapons at the same time. You can also hide behind the cover or use a power slide, thanks to which Blazkowicz is able to move quickly to other cover without the risk of being shot to death.A huge arsenal - You can choose from an enormous variety of weapons. Furthermore, you can shoot two weapons at the same time or break into secret research facilities and heavily guarded weapon stashes in order to find upgrades.An interesting plot - The Third Reich had won the Second World War. As B.J Blazkowicz you have to stop it before they dominate the World with their Wunderwaffe.Action and adventure - Underwater exploration, Nazi war-machines and a beachfront fortress. This is the only tip of the iceberg in this action-packed game.

As the leader of the faction, the player has the power to broker peace or declare war, as well as assign secret operations, like espionage.The game’s map is created procedurally. Sectors of the map are made of biomes, which contain resources that player will have to harvest to progress. Resources can be spent on production, growing produce for food and collecting energy. Players can also invade camps of other factions to steal their resources and technological advancements.Combat in Planetfallis turn-based and observed from a top-down perspective. Each turn allows the player to take three actions, like opening fire or taking cover. Certain actions can “stagger” the enemy, disrupting their special attacks, etc.Campaign mode and factionsThe story of Age of Wonders Planetfall’s campaign mode is set in the sci-fi universe of Star Union, an intergalactic human government. Due to an unknown cataclysm, the Union was destroyed and humans scattered across space. New factions arose from the collapsed government, each fighting for control over decimated mankind. The player takes the role of one of the faction leaders.

Each of the factions possesses special traits and abilities to use in battle and during exploration.ReceptionAge of Wonders:Planetfallreceived positive first impressions from the critics, who commended the developers for trying to take the series into a new direction. Among the praised elements of the game, what stood out the most was the sci-fi setting, varied factions, with their own doctrines to follow and interesting military units – especially the dinosaur-riding Amazons, and certain mechanics of the game, such as Secret Technologies.AoW series has a history of being one of the best turn-based strategy series’. It has managed to maintain this title since the first game, released nearly 20 years ago. By taking Planetfall in the new direction, and abandoning the fantasy setting in favor of the outer space, developers took a huge risk.
Trey Parker and Matt Stone come back with a sequel to the critically acclaimed South Park: The Stick of Truth. This time the theme is superheroes, and South Park: The Fractured But Whole, as befits the cult franchise, pulls no punches.

Use your character's incredible fart powers in combination with South Park regulars' to access new areas, including the rooftops.

Cartman and crew now care only about creating the next best superhero franchise. South park: The Fractured But Whole features twelve superhero-themes classes, including the Speedster, Cyborg, and Karate Kid. But the true power of The Fractured But Whole is in the farts of player character, powerful enough to rip apart the fabric of time itself, among other things. The superhero theme extends to the customization, with generic and class-specific costume elements available at character creation.Improved gameplaySouth Park: The Fractured But Whole greatly improves on the systems first put in place in The Stick of Truth. The combat system is revamped, now taking place on a grid, allowing character to move around, making careful positioning a key to victory. The twelve classes are fundamentally different and have assigned classic roles like healers or tanks, which will matter for the gameplay. The changes greatly deepen the combat system without making it unmanageable or unclear.The show's creators still in controlTrey Parker and Matt Stone worked very closely with Ubisoft, providing voices, writing, essential suggestions and more. Thanks to that South Park: The Fractured But Whole still holds true to the style and atmosphere of the original show, much like The Stick of Truth did. Locations and characters straight from the source material come back better and more plentiful than ever before.
