Returnal is a third-person shooter with rogue-like style horror elements. I won't go into too much detail about the game here, as there is already an interesting article about it in our Gaming News-section.

New Pokémon Snap: Gotta Snap Them All

Anyone who grew up with Pokémon in their childhood and is perhaps still a big fan of the pocket monsters can certainly remember the harmonious, cozy "Pokémon Snap" back on the N64. In a small wagon, we gondolled across an island, equipped with a camera, in search of the perfect snapshot of a Pokémon. If the whole thing sounds a bit monotonous at first, the game enjoyed a great deal of popularity back then. Apart from the battles and the catching of Pokémon, it was mainly about keeping your eyes open to get a, sometimes more sometimes less rare, Pokémon in front of your lens.

New Pokémon Snap doesn't reinvent the wheel, because the principle remains similar to back then, you sit in a vehicle and drive across an island full of Pokémon. Of course, in addition to many Pokémon from the first generations, there are also many Pokémon from the newer generations. In total, there are over 200 Pokémon to discover.

Although the game follows a rough storyline, the main goal here is still to fill the photo codex with your snapshots. The quality of the photos also plays a role. After each outing, the photos are evaluated by a professor. Pictures will be rated well if the Pokémon can be seen well and large enough on the photo, if it looks in the direction of the camera, possibly takes an exciting pose and if additionally other Pokémon can be seen in the background.
In addition to the story, there will also be different missions (such as "take a total of 100 photos") through which you can unlock different filters or frames.

As a Pokémon fan, this game should almost be a must-have, but even not so die-hard fans who are looking for a quiet game with a high replay value should get their money's worth here.
