    Decent expansion to a great game

    Neverwinter Nights 2: Mask of The Betrayer

    Decent expansion to a great game

    Firstly, I'll admit that I'm biased - I love the Neverwinter Nights franchise. I've got all the expansion packs, played through adventures multiple times with different character classes and seen most of the possible out... Read Full Review

    Decent expansion pack that significantly enhances the Titan Quest experience

    Titan Quest: Immortal Throne

    Decent expansion pack that significantly enhances the Titan Quest experience

    The expansion pack to the highly enjoyable Titan Quest really adds a lot to the game, both in giving a lengthy addition to the story as well as adding new features that can be used throughout the initial campaign. In ... Read Full Review

    Titan Quest

    A lot of fun but a bit lacking in originality

    I bought this game on the recommendation of one of my friends. He described it as "a bit like Diablo". As a big fan of Diablo I was immediately interested in seeing the game, and very excited to purchase it. An... Read Full Review

    Tomb Raider: Anniversary

    At some point something went very wrong.

    I am quite proud of the fact that I have defeated every standard Tomb Raider game on the PC. I like the series, it features intriguing storylines, a likable heroine, exciting gameplay and mental challenges. Admittedly by... Read Full Review

    Neverwinter Nights 2

    An almost perfect sequel to one of the greatest games of the modern age

    Ok I'll be honest with you, I really like Neverwinter Nights. In fact, I love it. I've played through the incredibly long main adventure and the expansion packs at least four times with various character types, exploring... Read Full Review

    Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas

    A well rounded game that will keep you playing for months

    A generally strong addition to the Tomb Raider series, although the common weaknesses are still there.

    Tomb Raider: The Last Revelation has a different feel to it than the other games in the series. Yes, the delightful Miss Croft may have the same moves, and may be yet again challenged on every turn by levers and movable ... Read Full Review
