Neverwinter Nights 2 (PC)

Neverwinter Nights 2 review (PC)

Reviewed on December 07, 2011

Neverwinter Nights 2 is a mixed bag, like a surprisingly tasty diet chicken soup.

Serious Sam: BFE (PC)

Serious Sam: BFE review (PC)

Reviewed on December 05, 2011

Serious Sam 3: BFE is Croteam's love letter to those of us who have been waiting for another glimpse at classic shoot-'em-up-ery in the vein of Doom, Quake, and even the original Duke Nukem, whose modern iteration failed to deliver. It's a machine gun-and-heavy-metal symphony that only hardcore shooter fans will want to take a stab at, and while its punishing difficulty at times may certainly be a turnoff for potential buyers, it's a satisfying throwback to a simpler time.

Travian (PC)

Travian review (PC)

Reviewed on December 03, 2011

Travian ensures that browser-based gaming can still pull its weight in this era of triple-A titles and HD remakes.

Anno 2070 (PC)

Anno 2070 review (PC)

Reviewed on December 03, 2011

The campaign, which has no time limits and almost no fail states, is just a primer. The core of Anno 2070 is the continuous scenario, which you can set up to be as competitive, goal-oriented, and punishing as you want, or as peaceful, open-ended, and forgiving as you want. This is the epitome of the sandbox game. Just start it up and build your little heart out. And the longer it goes, the longer you'll want it to go.

Alone in the Dark 3 (PC)

Alone in the Dark 3 review (PC)

Reviewed on November 24, 2011

Alone 3 tries to blend the first game’s unparalleled approach to otherworldly detective work, with the second game’s more lighthearted but equally smart MacGyver-esque sleuthing (and jacked-up combat), in order to arrive at a happy medium. To the credit of the developers, the mixture does reach a medium, but it’s not happy.

Broken Sword: Director's Cut (PC)

Broken Sword: Director's Cut review (PC)

Reviewed on November 19, 2011

Despite all of its pretensions of intrigue and mystery, the most fun to be had in Broken Sword: The Director’s Cut is found by going around, bothering every character by showing them every piece of junk in your inventory, and eliciting their amusingly rude responses to your queries. There was clearly someone involved in Broken Sword who had incredible writing talent, because the colorful cast of characters is truly one of a kind. Unfortunately, this talent was misguided and misused, and having t...

The Silver Lining Episode 4: 'Tis In My Memory Locked, And You Yourself Shall Keep The Key Of It (PC)

The Silver Lining Episode 4: 'Tis In My Memory Locked, And You Yourself Shall Keep The Key Of It review (PC)

Reviewed on November 16, 2011

It fails on just about every imaginable level. The only thing even approaching a saving grace is the price: it's free. But even that's irritating because it means I can't even have the pleasure of angrily demanding my money back.

Dreamfall: The Longest Journey (PC)

Dreamfall: The Longest Journey review (PC)

Reviewed on November 14, 2011

The central narrative arc is beautiful: this is a game which expands on its predecessor’s coming of age story, and presents something altogether more grown-up. If The Longest Journey demonstrated the progression from the naivety of youth to the responsibility of adulthood, Dreamfall is a game about taking that newfound maturity and giving it back to those in need.

Gemini Rue (PC)

Gemini Rue review (PC)

Reviewed on November 07, 2011

Gemini Rue is an adventure game that doesn't care to hide its influences. The title screen – set to the sight and sounds of the rain-stricken planet of Barracus – evokes the feeling of a grim, desperate dystopia that takes a cue from the likes of Blade Runner and Cowboy Bebop.

Battlefield 3 (PC)

Battlefield 3 review (PC)

Reviewed on November 07, 2011

More than any other graphics engine today, it's a complete package, featuring scale, scope, spectacle, on-foot detail and in-airplane elbow room, multiplayer, meaningful destruction, and absurdly good animation. Absurdly good. The animation is so good you probably won't even notice it. Of course the characters move this way because that's how real dudes move. What's the big deal? You almost have to go back to another game with the usual animation to appreciate what Battlefield 3 does.

Serious Sam: The Random Encounter (PC)

Serious Sam: The Random Encounter review (PC)

Reviewed on November 04, 2011

The Random Encounter ends almost as fast as it begins, but your five bucks get you a punchy, colorful, and vivid throwback to the heyday of the RPG, mashed up with all the violent insanity of Serious Sam. Fans who need their next fix would do well to check out the previous indie offering Double D in addition to this quickie, simply to serve as a great palate cleanser before jumping right back into the hotbed of ravenous monsters that is the Serious Sam universe. The Random Encounter is short, sweet, and certainly a breath of fresh air for what is quickly becoming a stagnant genre.

Dragon Age 2 (PC)

Dragon Age 2 review (PC)

Reviewed on October 31, 2011

There have been complaints, and will be many more, that Dragon Age II is appealing for a more mainstream audience by removing all the fiddling of its predecessor, but I don’t think this is a fair accusation. There is very little that you could do before which is no longer possible. The difference is that the extraneous elements have been stripped away, giving the action space to breathe.

Civilization V (PC)

Civilization V review (PC)

Reviewed on October 18, 2011

And here’s a major place in which Civilization V seems to fall down. Maybe it’s just too long since I last tackled a Civ game, and I’ve simply lost my ability to play make believe within its boundaries. More likely, there’s a problem. Because for the life of me, I just could not even fool myself into being convinced by the diplomacy system.

Bejeweled 2 (PC)

Bejeweled 2 review (PC)

Reviewed on October 14, 2011

Adding to the fun are the fruits of putting together four- and five-jewel combos. The former creates a magical sparkly jewel that, if placed into a line of three, will create an explosion to clear out ALL surrounding gems. The latter causes a weird amoeba-like shape to appear. If you find yourself stuck, you can click on it and any surrounding gem to make all of that color get eradicated.

Deus Ex: Human Revolution (PC)

Deus Ex: Human Revolution review (PC)

Reviewed on October 04, 2011

Eidos Montreal deftly updated the game to give it more modern sensibilities while retaining the core of what captivated us with the original. I'd even go as far as arguing that this is the very best entry in the series and closest to the original vision of what the game could be, though some may disagree.

Independence War (PC)

Independence War review (PC)

Reviewed on August 19, 2011

The great dream of space-flight! Romantic and glorious. But how would you actually fly a space-ship in completely dark space anyway? And how about spotting those incoming black dots travelling at near light speed, for example?

Rocket Jockey (PC)

Rocket Jockey review (PC)

Reviewed on August 16, 2011

The rocket jockey theatrically loses the grip with one arm as the cable disengages, but hangs on valiantly around the improbable turn anyway. How does the rocket not start to rotate and spin out of control, you ask? Well, obviously the guy sits on top of the rocket sled, and it has all these steering fins and stuff, so obviously it's going to zoom at a straight path when it reaches supersonic speeds! Don't ask so many questions!

Left 4 Dead (PC)

Left 4 Dead review (PC)

Reviewed on August 16, 2011

Left 4 Dead is an intense horror experience with a pitch-perfect atmosphere of paranoia and portending doom, punctuated with madcap battles against massive zombie hordes. Or, at least, it is for about an hour or so. Once the player becomes immune to the creepy music, desensitized to clawing swarms of zombies, and gets to know the maps a little better, the game quickly becomes nothing more than a straight-faced co-op shooter.

Lander (PC)

Lander review (PC)

Reviewed on August 14, 2011

"It takes subtlety to succeed here. But it is extremely rewarding when you do, and float through the maze-like levels inside the planet's surface - or through the canyons and caves. The eerie space-music perfectly accompanies you on the trip there."

Trapped Dead (PC)

Trapped Dead review (PC)

Reviewed on July 31, 2011

The errors, the bugs, the flaws, oh god, they're everywhere. In number and in menace, they drown out the game’s zombies. They’ll become your biggest fear. But instead of eating away at your brains, they’ll instead devour any interest you once had.
