    Train Simulator 2014

    Still good but its developers control ALL content.

    After all the changes to the EULA for the TS2013 version of this game, I believed this game would take a dive. Instead, its popularity seems to have increased, and the DLC available for it has increased in both quantity ... Read Full Review

    New restrictions curbing user generated content, and more dumbing down threaten the future of this simulation platform.

    Train Simulator 2013

    New restrictions curbing user generated content, and more dumbing down threaten the future of this simulation platform.

    My reviews for previous versions of this game spanning several years have always been enthusiastic and positive, so I'm quite sad to have to write a review today that is far from that. I'm disappointed at the direction t... Read Full Review

    World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria

    The latest expansion from WoW may keep players glued to the screen for another 3 months, but offers nothing innovative.

    The Mists of Pandaria expansion (MoP) offers players a new kingdom, a new race, a new class, and few other new features and changes. The theme is loosely based on 16th century Chinese folklore, mythology and philosophy. ... Read Full Review

    Great game with years of value thanks to diverse number of ways it can be played and its superb modding possibilities.

    Why do I sometimes review a game that's a few years old? Answer - because it's still compares favourably with new releases on the market today. Fallout 3 certainly falls into this category. I'm writing this in February 2... Read Full Review
