Titan Quest (PC)

Titan Quest review (PC)

Reviewed on June 21, 2012

Titan Quest is an exciting bash across ancient lands. Very little about this game is innovative. Rather than experimenting with new concepts, Iron Lore took familiar ones and refined them. They knew what kind of game they were making. They didn't overload it with pretentious storytelling or bits of narrative that demean the action.

Diablo III (PC)

Diablo III review (PC)

Reviewed on June 16, 2012

But it only solidifies the feeling that prior to Inferno was a game that continuously promised nothing to its players. And while the final challenge takes shape of a true game, itís hardly a perfect dungeon crawler itself.

Oil Rush (PC)

Oil Rush review (PC)

Reviewed on June 05, 2012

What makes this game so compelling isn't the plot (which is fairly stereotypical) or even the environment (which is quite beautiful despite the post-apocalyptic setting). It's the careful balance between a remarkably simple interface and complex strategy. Unlike other examples of this genre, you don't need to consider eight million factors when planning a move, or gather fifty kinds of resources, or examine ninety different stats. Instead, your concerns lie with your units and, of course, oil.

Deus Ex (PC)

Deus Ex review (PC)

Reviewed on June 02, 2012

The tech-noir feel can be cheesy at times, and the visuals are dated, but the game is still great. Here's a game that's versatile enough to allow you to play how you want. Here's a title filled with cleverly designed levels, special skills and a variety of gadgets that help meld the game to your playing style. Maybe it's not as relevant today as it was in 2000, and maybe it's an eyesore, but it's definitely still an exciting title.

Diablo III (PC)

Diablo III review (PC)

Reviewed on May 27, 2012

With so many of Diablo III's core functions being handled on Blizzard's end, the game's performance is directly tied to how well their servers are running. When you buy Diablo III, half of the game is still in another part of the country, and millions of people are trying to access it all at once.

The Mist (PC)

The Mist review (PC)

Reviewed on May 25, 2012

You'll be screwing around, attempting to input any damn command the computer might actually recognize, outside the hardware store when suddenly you'll get a "The bug just appeared" message. Now, one of two things will happen. First, if you're lucky enough to have found a bug-killing item AND are lucky enough to figure out the specific way to phrase your command so that you actually use it, you can dispatch the mutated creature. Or, more likely, you'll be dead in a turn or two.

Revenge of the Titans (PC)

Revenge of the Titans review (PC)

Reviewed on May 11, 2012

Compounding that particular issue is the fact that itís difficult to see very far. The perspective is close enough to the ground that you can easily see detail around each building and your base, but to see the whole level youíll need to use the keyboard keys or the mouse to scroll. This adds nothing useful to the experience and seems to exist mostly as a cheap means of adding difficulty.

Confrontation (PC)

Confrontation review (PC)

Reviewed on May 07, 2012

To stop all evil in the world, you control a squad of warriors belonging to the Griffin (human) faction. Though you'll recruit teammates as you travel through various lands, you can only fight with four at any given time, so you must choose your lineup carefully. You'll often be surrounded, outnumbered or overpowered. Your enemies are frequently stronger, or have better skills. It'll take your best thinking and planning to succeed.

Journey (Arcade)

Journey review (ARC)

Reviewed on April 21, 2012

Your idle band members mug and smile cluelessly even when your current guy gets hit. Then he falls and pouts and bangs his fists on the ground to the chorus of "Who's Crying Now." This is my favorite musical gaming pun by a long shot.

Legend of Grimrock (PC)

Legend of Grimrock review (PC)

Reviewed on April 19, 2012

What Almost Human tried and succeeded to capture was the feeling of isolation. There are no other friendly faces around, and the only trace of former occupants to be found are hastily-scribbled letters that you can find from time to time.

Miner 2049er (Apple II)

Miner 2049er review (APP2)

Reviewed on April 08, 2012

I figured once I became a big college student or even an adult, I'd be able to breeze through a game like this with my life smarts. That'd I'd be stronger and quicker and more mature and--well, I did realize stuff. Like how grossly unfair early video games were.

Warp (PC)

Warp review (PC)

Reviewed on March 27, 2012

That second part makes Zero less of something that escaped out of a Cartoon Network special and more of a psychotic killer that will hold no remorse if it will end with him escaping captivity.

J.U.L.I.A (PC)

J.U.L.I.A review (PC)

Reviewed on March 27, 2012

This makes it a recommendable video game featuring a strong narrative, fantastic storytelling and a real sense of personality.

Q*bert (Arcade)

Q*bert review (ARC)

Reviewed on March 26, 2012

Q*Bert is one of the first arcade games I feel I really solved. I don't mean that I figured how to beat the hardest level until I got bored of it, like you would in Asteroids or something. I also don't mean reaching the end like when you flip the level bit in Pac-Man or even escape Dr. Boom in Cloak and Dagger.

Braid (PC)

Braid review (PC)

Reviewed on March 15, 2012

What impressed me the most was the willingness the developers showed to craft such an entertaining and challenging title despite placing the lion's share of the emphasis on the metaphoric story. Strip away the plot and we're left with an addictive puzzle/platformer.

Syndicate (2012) (PC)

Syndicate (2012) review (PC)

Reviewed on March 05, 2012

When all is said and done, one can' t feel but disappointed with Syndicate. It tried to do a lot of things, and for that congratulations are in order, but in most things it tries, it fails.

Neverwinter Nights 2: Mask of the Betrayer (PC)

Neverwinter Nights 2: Mask of the Betrayer review (PC)

Reviewed on March 03, 2012

Mask of the Betrayer is a relatively short but sweet experience that, through its gameplay innovations and flawless writing, injects new life into the very framework of Neverwinter Nights 2 which, in turn, was such an improvement over NWN1.

The Curse of Monkey Island (PC)

The Curse of Monkey Island review (PC)

Reviewed on March 03, 2012

Aimed squarely at prospective new fans who were probably still preteens during the run of the original Monkey Island games, Monkey Island 3 is an OK if unremarkable adventure game when taken strictly in isolation. It looks well, plays well and sounds great. But it's not a proper Monkey Island entry.

To the Moon (PC)

To the Moon review (PC)

Reviewed on March 01, 2012

Its retro graphics look beautiful. The original soundtrack is utterly stunning. Its story is one of the most confident and grown-up that our medium has ever seen. Donít approach To the Moon expecting taxing puzzles or combat or stats, because that isnít what itís about. It is its own thing: an indie adventure about going to the moon, but with its sights set far beyond it.

Neverwinter Nights 2: Storm of Zehir (PC)

Neverwinter Nights 2: Storm of Zehir review (PC)

Reviewed on February 29, 2012

Storm of Zehir catches us off guard because most of us approach it as "just another small scale NWN add-on". It does start off like that, but soon it blossoms into an epic experience that is only comparable to the most ambitious role playing games of recent times. And even that description fails to do it justice as essentially it's three games rolled in one.
