    Fascinating storytelling wrapped in a average game

    Fascinating storytelling wrapped in a average game

    When you look at Remedy's previous games such as Max Payne or their upcoming oeuvre, you cannot help but feel that they are trying to push the boundaries and/or establish the video game's potential for storytelling. Inst... Read Full Review

    Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor

    Great from Start to ... not the finish alas

    I am a huge fan of all things Tolkien and LOTR. That being said, I found that this game relates to the source lore on a very minimum level, despite featuring the ring, sauron, gollum, a song about Durin yada yada yada, ... Read Full Review

    The interesting thing about The walking Dead is, if you would force me to sit down and write a review after immediately finishing the game and measuring its sheer and unfiltered emotional impact (atmosphere, story, chara... Read Full Review

    A visceral, dark and super-polished rendition of the Dark Knight and probably the best Batman game out there

    Batman: Arkham Asylum

    A visceral, dark and super-polished rendition of the Dark Knight and probably the best Batman game out there

    As every other geek on this planet, I am a big fan of the dark knight (even though I thought his last film was not that good despite the hype) and I am thrilled to say that this has been the purest Batman gaming experien... Read Full Review

    It retains the charm and wit of the series but the gameplay and visuals are average at best. Great nostalgia value !

    Tales of Monkey Island Chapter 1: Launch of the Screaming Narwhal

    It retains the charm and wit of the series but the gameplay and visuals are average at best. Great nostalgia value !

    Like many others, I am a huge fan of old school Lucasarts (and some Sierra) adventures, the tales of Guybrush Threepwood have been part of my gaming life a long time and the third part in the series (Curse of Monkey Isla... Read Full Review

    A world that sucks you in through visuals, atmosphere and endless possibility, but once it gets you, it goes nowhere.

    The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

    A world that sucks you in through visuals, atmosphere and endless possibility, but once it gets you, it goes nowhere.

    I have played all the Elder Scrolls games in the series beginning with Daggerfall and like many I do believe that Skyrim is the best of the bunch, I was not keen on Morrowind, never got into Oblivivion but put many hours... Read Full Review

    An amazing space saga . . . unbelievable.

    I have played the first and second part of Mass Effect back to back and I had the pleasure of having enough spare time to put about 60 hours in both titles. Holy Galaxy what a ride, I cried, laughed, jumped, shouted at t... Read Full Review

    A tough difficulty level makes this a very rough experience, but the quirkiness and attention to detail make it fun

    I was more or less immediately sold on this game due to the amazing theme. Yes, it might be an indie game and theme a mere coating on the cake that is the gameplay but I still think this game might be worth picking up fo... Read Full Review

    The Lord of the Rings: War in the North

    Despite a kick-ass license, Snowblind delivers a bland and generic RPG with a story so lame it hurts. Disappointing.

    I was excited when I heard that Snowblind was working on an 'RPG' game set in the Lord of the Rings universe. My first sentence already contains some of my major criticisms of the game but let's do away with the good stu... Read Full Review

    An experience that stays with you for the rest of your life. Immersion, interesting characters and great story.

    I have avoided playing the Mass Effect series due to my aversion to sci-fi and I can proudly say that I think that this very game might have cured me from this very inaptitude to appreciate a ghost space-sage. The ga... Read Full Review

    I found this to be one of the best gaming experiences I had in my life.

    Where to start on a review of a game that I scored 10 ? Is it the perfect game and will you expect nothing but praise from this review ? Well, rest assured, there is plenty that is wrong or not at its best in LA Noire an... Read Full Review

    Trine is a beautifully crafted game that should not be missed by anyone

    Trine is a perfect example of a game that turns out to be more than the sum of its parts. A puzzle-2D platformer in the vain of Lost Vikings may not sound like much, but Trine delivers an amazing gameplay experience on s... Read Full Review

    A solid but a bit short and superficial past time, especially for fans of very light RTS gaming.

    Swords and Soldiers is described as a RTS game, although it does have not a lot in common with the RTS games most gamers will think about when prompted to name a few. The basic principle of the game lies in what most RTS... Read Full Review

    I have been keen to play Half Life 2 for a long time. I enjoyed the first game quiet a lot back in the day and ever since the sequel came out, it was overrolled with praise and claims to be the best game ever made (accor... Read Full Review

    As someone who is used to playing FPS games commando style, taking on hordes of zombies / nazis / aliens and whatnot with a crowbar and a revolver alone, playing a game like Brothers in Arms was quite the unmerciful chan... Read Full Review
