Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice

Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice is beautiful and terrifying at the same time. Its combat mechanics and puzzles are strong, but its true strengths lies with its ability to tell a story and craft a world that differentiates itself from other titles out there. Together, we’re offered an adventure that is equally horrifying and brilliant – a true masterpiece of a game. – Gamer.no 
Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice offers an unparalleled ambiance that is impacted by the character’s mental illness. With a few imperfections, this games is one to play because you will ultimately remember it, unlike most AAA games. – JeuxActu
Hellblade is not a game for everybody, but if you are interested in either psychology or Scandinavian myth, this is the game for you. The story and atmosphere will surely engage you and some of the stuff that you experience throughout the game are very original – BaziCenter

Absolver

Absolver is one of the top games of the year. While its level design can use some work, its combat system should be studied and worshiped by anyone trying to make a fighting game. – Gaming Nexus
Absolver is innovative and original, easy to play and hard to master. It lacks content for the single player mode, and it still has a long way to go to reach excellence, but it’s already worth your time. – Vandal
Absolver is a game that rewards players with a unique Kung-Fu fighter to master. – CGMagazine

Nier Automata

Nier: Automata is an absolute masterclass in game design. It surpasses expectations time and time again resulting in an experience not to be missed by fans of action titles. – GameGrin
NieR: Automata is everything I could have wanted from a sequel to NieR, to the point that I almost feel spoiled here. It keeps the same off-the-wall plot and well-written characters from the original while discarding the clunky combat and movement for a system that has the sheen of any one of Platinum’s greatest titles. – RPG Fan
Nier: Automata is a delectable buffet of remarkable experiences that seamlessly and beautifully mesh together. In spite its plethora of elements, the game doesn’t suffer from the sometimes inevitable pitfalls of trying to do too much. – PlayStation LifeStyle

Elex

A giant game in all aspects that conveys the sensation of influence on the virtual world. Some failures in control are the most negative point, but ELEX is a new vindication of Piranha Bytes. – Meristation
A solid adventure with a cool scenario mixture of science fiction and fantasy. Elex is not a must-have title for RPG fans like Divinity: Original Sin 2 – but it’s a nice addition. – PC Games
ELEX gives us freedom, choices and replayability. It’s a quite old-school RPG that falls short when it comes to graphics and AI. If you’ve played and enjoyed any of the previous Piranha Bytes games, make sure you give this one a try. – Vandal
