    The gameplay in Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2, with its "be told what to do" mentality, certainly wasn't for me.

    Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2

    The gameplay in Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2, with its "be told what to do" mentality, certainly wasn't for me.

    There are two kinds of people in this world: those who like being a sniper and those who despise it. Okay, so it might not be quite like that, but for fans who like using such virtual weapons in military games, there isn... Read Full Review

    Persona 4: The Golden

    It's never been as easy for me to award a game a high score as it has with Persona 4: Golden – this is a gaming classic.
