Duke Nukem Forever (PC)

Duke Nukem Forever review (PC)

Reviewed on June 16, 2011

The inspiration is, of course, the venerable Duke Nukem 3D, a groundbreaking over-the-top comedy shooter that had actual gameplay when it came out 15 years ago. But in Duke Nukem Forever, it's tough to use the word "inspiration". When you come across a nod to the original game, it feels like it was chucked in carelessly. Here's a trip mine. Here's a holoduke. Here's a pigcop. Here's something like a boss fight. Here's a gun that shoots blue lasers. Here's a stripper.

Frozen Synapse (PC)

Frozen Synapse review (PC)

Reviewed on June 03, 2011

Generally speaking, multiplayer matches consist of a few minutes of head-scratching, a bit of experimentation, a final check, a click of the ‘Prime’ button, and an edge-of-seat wait for your opponent to submit his or her next turn. It’s often sensible to go and get on with something else while the time ticks away, but it’s difficult to do so when you’re so invested.

The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings review (PC)

Reviewed on May 23, 2011

If you can look past the balancing, pacing and technical issues, there is an extremely solid RPG here - nothing especially innovative, but definitely a game that sets out to be the most absorbing, rich and spectacular experience it possibly can be. It’s a disappointment because it largely succeeds in that goal while fluffing the basics. The best RPG of the current generation? With a bit more care, it could have been.

Machinarium (PC)

Machinarium review (PC)

Reviewed on May 20, 2011

Romel Ramos – A point and click adventure, Machinarium is a puzzler set in a futuristic robot world. You play as an innocent looking robot; journeying through a gritty machine city, while his story unfolds.

Mount & Blade: With Fire and Sword (PC)

Mount & Blade: With Fire and Sword review (PC)

Reviewed on May 18, 2011

This kind of incompetence is old news, although one would have hoped that for the series' third outing the AI squadmates would be better at self-preservation. What makes it more frustrating than in the past, however, is that you simply cannot be enough of a superhero to make up for their ghastly mistakes. Because now there are all these guns, you see.

Raven Squad: Operation Hidden Dagger review (PC)

Reviewed on May 02, 2011

I feel a bit guilty for panning anybody’s first effort, and my hope that a decent game can be made from this premise is genuine. But the only thing you’ll find here is mounting disappointment and enough dropped balls to start a play pit with.

Dead Space 2 review (PC)

Reviewed on March 26, 2011

All in all, Dead Space 2 manages to improve on the original whilst retaining a great sense of atmospheric suspense.

Myst (PC)

Myst review (PC)

Reviewed on March 25, 2011

If you bought a computer between about 1993 and 1996, you'll have got a free computer game with it. Perhaps your mum will have played it, sitting in front of the PC for hours on end, trying to figure out solutions to the game's many puzzles as she wandered around the pretty environments. Myst quickly became one of the most popular games in the world, mainly because you couldn't bloody avoid the thing.

Dragon Age 2 review (PC)

Reviewed on March 17, 2011

I can't help but shake the feeling that this is the Knights of the Old Republic 2 of this generation - an ambitious sequel marred by technical complications.

Osmos (PC)

Osmos review (PC)

Reviewed on March 16, 2011

Hemisphere Games put some real thought into this game. They didn't want you walking out thinking it was a loveless affair. Each new situation adds to the addiction and stimulates your gray matter and your gall, putting together a solid plan on the fly and having the brass put it into effect, even when it seems you may fail.

Poker Night at the Inventory review (PC)

In the end, Poker Night at the Inventory is nothing more than a promotion for Team Fortress 2 featuring a cheap poker game.

To the word. Seriously, that's crazy (kinda, but makes sense if you've played the game). Anyways.

Trine (PC)

Trine review (PC)

Reviewed on March 12, 2011

It's a good thing that trine is only a handful of hours in length because while it definitely is a clever take on the puzzle platform genre, there just isn't enough to really justify a full length game. The combat is frequently tedious, and the backgrounds often feel unpleasant to look at, being overly dark though quite lush. Get in, try out the clever ideas, and get out before you tire. And you will tire.

The Witcher (PC)

The Witcher review (PC)

Reviewed on March 10, 2011

The Witcher, based on a well known series of polish fantasy books by Andrzej Sapkowski, takes a more "realistic" route in portraying the continent of Temeria, and its denizens. Geralt, our platinum-haired hero is one of these witchers, a monster hunter with amazing combat prowess, insane reflexes, alchemical abilities and magical powers surpassing those of mortal men.

Lylian: Episode 1: Paranoid Friendship review (PC)

Reviewed on March 10, 2011

Some time into her stay, she mysteriously finds her restraints loose and door unlocked. Free to explore the bleak and darkened corridors of the institute in search of donuts and a kidnapped Bob, the child encounters many bizarre phenomena. Crazed nurses wander the halls, determined to kick the girl into submission, while donut-stuffed fatties try their best to crush her beneath their obese weight.

Who's That Flying?! (PC)

Who's That Flying?! review (PC)

Reviewed on March 01, 2011

The story begins with you – Guardian of Earth – standing trial at the Galactic Council of Space Justice for allowing the planet to be invaded. It isn't particularly deep - it doesn't need to be - but the trial scenes that intersperse the levels are well-made and humorous.

Recettear: An Item Shop's Tale review (PC)

Reviewed on February 28, 2011

Everyone salutes the knights in mythril armor, the adept mages and wise wizards, the swift thieves and rogues, and dual-sword wielding rangers of the elvish variety. They praise the questing heroes because they had the best weapons and armor and gained just enough levels to pummel that malevolent otherworldy being who threatened to enslave humanity.

Halo Zero (PC)

Halo Zero review (PC)

Reviewed on February 27, 2011

I remember on April Fools Day 2005 when Gamespot joked about Halo 3, stating that it's rumored to be a RTS. They probably didn't fool anyone, but it wasn't long before a Halo game that didn't stick to the series' traditional first-person view would be released. Although it was never “officially” released, Halo Zero quickly became one of the most popular Halo mods, despite being a 2D side-scroller similar to the Half-Life 2 mod: Codename: Gordon.
