    Watch Dogs (Limited Edition)

    Superman to Metropolis, Batman to Gotham, Spiderman to New York, Aiden Pearce to Chicago

    The game is a tale of revenge (yawn), it’s about protecting those you love (bleh), that and conspiracies (oh, those), the criminal underworld (played it), corruption (seen it), and let’s not forget hacking (y... Read Full Review

    Not a shooter with a brain and/or soul, but definitely a shooter with a heart.

    Wolfenstein: The New Order

    Not a shooter with a brain and/or soul, but definitely a shooter with a heart.

    Wolfenstein pre-dated Doom. Now ponder that for a moment. What you're playing is history. History that will hopefully be made again if the game sells well enough to warrant a sequel, and I do hope you buy this game becau... Read Full Review

    What a waste of a game. Broken, boring, unplayable, unpolished and utterly un-enjoyable.
