    Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs

    Although lacking the spirituality of the original, it remains a dark and compelling adventure that doesn't come often.

    You couldn't imagine the excitement I had been feeling for another Amnesia Game. After the amazing single-player experience of the first and memorable horror I just needed another game in that series to come along, and I... Read Full Review

    Amnesia, you have a new rival!

    I always find that certain genres, or types of games within those genres, that hold the biggest appeal for gamers like me are never tackled on often enough. To be fair, this could be the play-it-safe card for fear of bei... Read Full Review

    You don't always need a story to enjoy a game.

    Q.U.B.E.

    You don't always need a story to enjoy a game.

    And here we go again; Gamespot wants to make an excuse that the game could be better if it had character/story development like (Yawn) Valve's Portal. Well, pardon me for trying to remind that the word 'Indie' is not a s... Read Full Review

    Battlestations: Pacific

    Improves on the original in almost every way.

    The original game 'Battlestations Midway' was an extraodinary game and was quite easy to master for a Naval-Fleet simulator, but due to graphics that looked terrible dated in parts, the game was no where near perfect. Ga... Read Full Review

    I can definitely see why people love this game so much.

    After playing most of this game, one thing is clear: I am forever a fan of Valve. I bought the Orange Box on PC and after installing it, Half-Life 2 was the first game that I tried. It is definitely the best. After playi... Read Full Review

    Assassin's Creed: Director's Cut Edition

    Assassin's Creed is a stunning game that is bogged down by repetitiveness and unskippable cutscenes.

    Regardless of what some people may claim, Ubisoft Montreal has been responsible for the development of many really good games (and it seems the sequel is quite promising), and Assassin's Creed is among them. It is certai... Read Full Review

    A brilliant remake of the first game. If only it wasn't so buggy.

    This is a remake of the first Serious Sam using the Serious Engine 3, which is the engine that Croteam intends to use for development of the third game. The First Encounter was very impressive and me being part-Croatian,... Read Full Review
