Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3 (2023) review: Laptop and desktop benchmarks

The series' lowest point despite its attractive visuals? Currently, review platforms like Metacritic are being bombarded with negative comments about the new Call of Duty iteration. Aside from the game's scope (DLC content for the price of a full game) being criticized, people also aren't saying the best things about its campaign (missions, story, etc). We have primarily taken a closer look at this new release's tech.

Lies of P tech review: Laptop and desktop benchmarks

Lies of P tech review: Laptop and desktop benchmarks

Surprisingly great Souls clone. Better to succeed in imitation than to fail in originality: that is one way to sum up Lies of P. The action game borrows heavily from the well-known Souls' formula. Read our tech review to find out whether the game performs better than the often quite suboptimal PC ports released by FromSoftware.

Star Wars Jedi Survivor review: Laptop and desktop benchmarks

Star Wars Jedi Survivor review: Laptop and desktop benchmarks

Moderate condition for an otherwise good game.

A field day for tinkerers and analysts. Nearly two years after Returnal made its debut on consoles, the third-person shooter has now also arrived on PC. The dark sci-fi game feels like a mix of Dead Space, Deathloop and Dark Souls. Its extensive graphics menu is particularly impressive.

High On Life review: Laptop and desktop benchmarks

High On Life review: Laptop and desktop benchmarks

What it feels like to be high. You don't really want to know what the creators of High on Life were on when developing the game. The title turned out to be one of the funniest and most creative first-person shooters in the past few years. But is the engine just as optimised as the wit on display?

FIFA 23: Notebook and desktop benchmarks

FIFA 23: Notebook and desktop benchmarks

Technical problems instead of foosball fun. After the disastrous launch of Konami's eFootball, main competitor EA also fails to release a mature soccer simulation but instead brings an unfinished product to the market, which often causes squabbles even before the game launch.
