  • XCOM: Enemy Unknown Review (PC)

    1 CommentsPosted by Matthew Vicente on November 16, 2012 under Featured, PC Reviews
    XCOM: Enemy Unknown is a revival of the classic PC strategy franchise. Many fans of the original title have been waiting a long time for another installment. Some cried out in rage when the XCOM shooter was announced before anyone revealed that there was indeed a proper strategy game also in the works. To be honest, I've never played the original, so I came into this title without any specifi... more.
  • Avernum: Escape from the Pit (PC Review)

    0 CommentsPosted by Karin E. Skoog on April 20, 2012 under Featured, PC Gaming, PC Reviews
    New to Avernum?  Well, you aren’t coming in too far behind the pack, mostly because this game is based after the very first Avernum game. The Avernum games are made for those who enjoy turn-based role playing games with a lot of dialogue and exploration in an overhead, grid view.  As in good ole’ RPG fashion of the prior decade, a map of the area is slowly revealed upon moving around the ... more.
  • Alan Wake (PC Review)

    Alan Wake fans rejoice – Alan Wake has hit the PC!  It even includes two DLC continuations – The Signal and The Writer. You are immediately thrown into a nightmare, face-to-face with your own creation – a hitchhiker from your own stories.  As combat initially consists of merely dodging attacks and running away from the enemy, it was a relief when Alan obtained a flashlight and a gun.  ... more.
  • Syndicate Review (PC)

    When I first heard that Syndicate was being remade into a first person shooter this year, my heart sunk into my stomach. Why would someone want to take a hatchet to this classic original title? Fans of the original Bullfrog Productions isometric style game will be surely disappointed to hear that the remake has very little of the unique style of gameplay which so attracted hordes of gamers in t... more.
  • Darkness II (PC Review)

    Looking for a fast-paced, gory shooter to blast your way through, with its own unique spin on ripping enemies apart in Mortal Kombat fatality-like fashion?  Then The Darkness II is a game for you! The Darkness II starts you out in a restaurant with twin girls, when one of the girls is shot and a car crashes through the window.  You’re immediately thrown into a chaotic scene, in which you’... more.
  • Serious Sam 3: BFE (PC) Review

    0 CommentsPosted by Paul Collins on December 11, 2011 under Featured, PC Reviews
    Serious Sam has earned 'cult' status on the PC platform. The first two titles proved to be big sellers for Croteam, targeting the first person shooter audience who just wanted a good old 'run and gun' style experience. I have been playing the latest iteration in the series now for the last week and have found it both fun, and incredibly challenging. Croteam have followed the same structure as t... more.
  • Hot off the Press – South Park: The Game Full-Scale RPG

    1 CommentsPosted by Karin E. Skoog on December 2, 2011 under Featured, PC Gaming, PC Reviews, PS3 Reviews, Playstation 3, X360 Reviews, Xbox 360
    “You can just hang around outside in the sun all day, tossing a ball around, or you can sit at your computer and do something that matters!” said Eric Cartman in the South Park episode, “Make love, not Warcraft.”  Gamers can truly do something that matters for South Park’s future and the future of comedic gaming – you can make the newly announced South Park RPG a true gaming sensation... more.
  • Need For Speed: The Run (PC) Review

    4 CommentsPosted by Paul Collins on November 29, 2011 under Featured, PC Reviews
    I remember the day when I loved to play the Need For Speed games, but recently I will admit to finding them dull, monotonous and immediately forgettable. When I was asked to review 'The Run' I winced inwardly at the prospect of having to sit through hours and hours of racing through various boring sections of a generic world map. Surprisingly 'The Run' is the first racing game Electronic Arts have... more.
  • Battlefield 3 Review (PC)

    1 CommentsPosted by Paul Collins on November 17, 2011 under Featured, PC Reviews
    I have been playing Call Of Duty Modern Warfare 3 and Battlefield 3 together, getting to grips with the weaknesses and strengths with both titles. COD: MW3 left me with a rather sour taste in my mouth - because while I enjoyed the (short) single player missions I found that it was a strictly 'paint by numbers' experience, bringing nothing new to the table. Battlefield 3 has been the more enjoyable... more.
  • Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 Review (PC)

    Call Of Duty, what is there left to say that hasn't already been said? One of the most successful franchises in game history, making hundreds of millions in revenue with every release. The big question needs answered however, is MW3 just more rehashing of the series or does it deliver good value for money? For the most part MW3 plays by the rules. Meaning, the developers know what is successful... more.
