    Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon

    Crazy, loud, barmy, ludicrous. Far Cry 3 is the perfect homage to 80s sci-fi.

    Far Cry 3 was undeniably one of the best titles of 2012. Its detailed landscape was filled to the brim with washed up pirates and hungry wild animals. It managed to breath a gust of life into a genre consisting mainly of... Read Full Review

    Tom Clancy's EndWar

    EndWar throws in interesting voice control technology. Sadly, it is rather awkward to use.

    EndWar is a very, very innovative title. While I don't think voice control will thread a very long path in this generation of gaming, it certainly could become a very fun videogame feature in the next generation. Unfortu... Read Full Review

    Condemned 2

    Despite some quirks, Condemned 2 is a solid addition to the horror genre.

    Satisfying combat. Interesting forensic investigation. A dark and gritty world to fight through. These are the very things that make Condemned 2 stand out in both horror and FPS genres. You play as Ethan Thomas. A for... Read Full Review

    Spore Mobile

    Spore has potential, but bears too many boring features to make it easy to recommend.

    Spore

    Spore has potential, but bears too many boring features to make it easy to recommend.

    Maxis has created a variety of innovative titles and while Spore may be one of them, it is executed poorly in some areas. The main premise of Spore is to create your own species, ranging from the creature's cell stag... Read Full Review

    BioShock

    An interesting premise, world and plot makes Bioshock a very unique gaming experience.

    Bioshock is an experience unlike any other. Its unique presentation and game world is enough to suck you in and keep you playing right until the end. However, it lacks any vastly interesting gameplay mechanics, so you sh... Read Full Review

    Solid gunfights and a good weapon arsenal can't help this somewhat disappointing sequel surpass the original.

    The original F.E.A.R was great. It had a brilliant campaign, a dark and moody atmosphere in each setting, superb visuals and some very scary horror sequences to back it up. F.E.A.R 2 only delivers around half of what mad... Read Full Review

    Halo Wars is a nice break from the day to day shooting marathons with the Master Chief and is a perfect end to ES' work.

    Halo Wars is ambitious, innovative and a lot of fun to play. It may very well be one of the best console RTS games to date. It also stands as an excellent conclusion to Ensemble Studios, a company that I will always reme... Read Full Review

    The very game that introduced me to RTS gaming is still as good as it was over a decade ago despite some problems.

    Age Of Empires was an ambitious title. Its high production values, fun single player scenarios and reasonably smart A.I made this a good start for the series. This was the very game that introduced me to RTS gaming when ... Read Full Review

    Quite possibly the most addictive PC title ever, as well as the most impressive 4X Strategy game ever created.

    I have never been a fan of the Civilization series. I was one for the Age of Empires and Total War games back when PC gaming became a bigger milestone in the history of videogames. Now that I have had a taste of what Fir... Read Full Review
