It’s simple and joyous yet challenging and skillful.

PixelJunk Monsters: Ultimate
A complete and utter failure with frustratingly poor controls and absolutely awful trial and error design.
PixelJunk Monsters is a tower defense game set on tropical islands in which you play as Tikiman who is tasked to defend his home from the onslaught of various monsters. While this sounds very appealin...
An original and intelligent game that treats players with respect and facilitates emergent gameplay.

Anomaly 2 successfully manages to carve out its own place thanks to new ideas and tactical gameplay.

id might have been about 10 years late with Rage, but whatever its status might be, it is still a very good, modern FPS.
Rage is a first-person shooter set in a brutal post apocalyptic world. It is also a brave attempt of a once legendary studio to modernize its game design and return to the top. The end result doesn&rs...
Fallen Enchantress: Legendary Heroes
A surprisingly unique mix of gameplay elements that will definitely delight any fan of the genre.
Fallen Enchantress: Legendary Heroes is a unique game that tries to combine major elements from two of the biggest and best turn-based strategy series in history, namely Civilization and Heroes of Mig...
An astonishing achievement in game design and visual arts and easily the top representative of its respective genre.
The Swapper is the debut title of a pair of University of Helsinki students that tells the story of strange happenings aboard Theseus, a space station and research facility located in a remote part of...
Sid Meier's Ace Patrol
It may not be as deep as other Firaxis games, but the addictive nature and elegant design is here in full force.
First things first, Ace Patrol was conceived, designed and programmed by Sid Meier himself which is exciting and noteworthy in and of itself considering that these days good old Sid mostly just overse...
A classic case of a bigger and better sequel which has not lost its unique and original flavor.
Sanctum 2 is the sequel to 2011′s highly original and unique blend of strategic tower defense and action-packed first-person shooting. The budget was obviously higher this time around and we got...
Total War Battles: SHOGUN
A half-baked and extremely boring game that doesn’t provide any of the elements a good strategy game needs.
Total War Battles: Shogun has little to do with the main Total War series, it’s an offspin originally released for iOS devices and then ported over to Android and PC. The gameplay is pretty simp...
Batman: Arkham City (Game of the Year Edition)
A very enjoyable, but overly familiar and simply inferior sequel.
Batman: Arkham City is the sequel to the surprisingly great Batman: Arkham Asylum, the debut game from London-based Rocksteady Studios. Arkham Asylum proved that it is possible to make a genuinely gre...
To the Moon
Despite the subpar design and inconsistent writing, this is still a wholly unique experience with a poignant finale.
To The Moon is an adventure game that tells a unique and interesting story about an old man on his deathbed whose dying wish is to visit the Moon. He hires an agency that specializes in memory manipul...
One of the best tower defense games on the market that will provide you with hours upon hours of addictive strategy.
Fieldrunners 2 is a 2D tower defense game that doesn't deviate too much from established genre parameters, but it refines the formula exceptionally well. It offers plenty of strategy and unhealthy add...
XCOM: Enemy Unknown
A resounding success and a highly enjoyable game thanks to the breadth of available options and a sound combat system.
XCOM: Enemy Unknown is something between a remake and a reboot of the beloved XCOM: UFO Defense turn-based strategy game. The developer tasked to do the job is Firaxis and it's a perfect fit for the s...
A wholly unique, charming and imaginative experience that you will never forget.
Botanicula is the latest game from magical Czech wizards at Amanita Design, creators of Machinarium and the lesser known Samorost series. Botanicula takes you on an unforgettable journey to dreamy pla...
Go Home Dinosaurs!
An enjoyable game that has its moments, but it's only recommended to tower defense beginners and children.
Go Home Dinosaurs is a tower defense game with an amusing premise. Basically, you play as a gopher who only wants to chill out and enjoy a nice barbecue with his gopher pals. Unfortunately for the gop...
Ambiguous to the point that it is self-indulgent and boring.
I finished Dear Esther a couple of days ago. In an hour. It looks beautiful and the music is wonderful, but the story is lackluster. It's ambiguous to the point that it is self-indulgent and boring. I...
Uncharted 2: Among Thieves
Uncharted 2 is held back by outdated, monotonous and restrictive design and shallow and boring gameplay.
Uncharted 2 is the quintessential example of everything that is wrong with big budget mainstream console gaming. It is the Call of Duty of action adventure games directed by a Michael Bay wannabe, fil...
FTL: Faster Than Light
Faster Than Light is one of those games that comes out of nowhere and makes you a believer again.
There's nothing like the feeling when a game which wasn't even on your radar comes along, completely blows you away and reminds you why you love this hobby very dearly. And that's paramount. Even the ...
Flower is an emotional and philosophical experience which can't be explained by delving into the mechanics or design.
Flower is a game that so effortlessly defies classification and as such is a proud testament of the untapped possibilities of this medium. Contrary to popular belief, gaming has not come to a point wh...
Okami is one of the prime examples of Japanese culture, art and game design all rolled into one unique package.
It's been seven years since the original version of Okami graced the PS2 and the game is still just as strong as it was back then. The HD version updates the game graphically with higher resolutions, ...
Its appeal and beauty lies in the inherently intangible magic of the medium.
I've always had an interesting relationship with the Fable series, it always brought me almost equal amounts of joy and disappointment. It's like a family member you know will never realize its full p...
Orcs Must Die!
Orcs Must Die is simple yet deep, an extremely addictive game that will keep you entertained for plenty of hours.
Orcs Must Die! is a gleefully addictive tower defense/action game hybrid. It is designed like most tower defense games, you must stop an oncoming horde of enemies before they reach their destination, ...
Sanctum successfully creates a thoroughly engaging and addictive experience.
Sanctum is a tower defense/first-person shooter hybrid in a sci-fi setting. It doesn't differ that much from regular tower defense games except for the fact that it's played from a first-person perspe...
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
An enjoyable game that has its moments. Just not that often.
I've been playing Skyrim on and off for over a year now. I went through brief periods of really wanting to play it and long periods of disinterest. I only put in 50 hours into the game which is just a...
Dragon Age II
Dragon Age II fumbled in a lot of ways, but I thoroughly enjoyed my journey from start to finish.
You can tell that BioWare rushed this game. It was set in a single city, and just like in Mass Effect, they used a few basic in-door templates for basically the entire game. They also repeatedly used ...
Call of Cthulhu: Dark Corners of the Earth
The village used to be all one really needs.
Call of Cthulhu: Dark Corners of the Earth is a very unique and highly atmospheric horror game based on the novels by H.P. Lovecraft from developer Headfirst Productions which has, unfortunately, file...
Another Brick In The Wall, Part IV.
Bully is the debut title from developer Rockstar Vancouver (formerly Barking Dog Studios known mostly for Homeworld: Cataclysm) which has endured hardships most games won't ever be able to comprehend....
I was engrossed in the film...without really watching.
The Movies has a very interesting concept that may appeal to many, but does it actually deliver? Does it make it possible for us to make movies or is it just a gimmick of sorts? I guess it all depends...
Trouble and suffering in a lovely rhythm.
To be quite honest, Fahrenheit (or Indigo Prophecy, as it is known in the U.S.) is an amazing experience which shouldn't me missed by anyone, especially adventure and movie fans. Movie? Yes, in some w...
The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings
A cIassic case of one step forward, two steps back.
The thing is, I totally didn't see it coming. It seemed to be bigger and better than its predecessor which was rough around the edges, but had plenty of soul as well as the courage to bypass some comm...
Alan Wake is a game that misses its potential by a considerable margin yet manages to be enjoyable for the most part.
I got my hands on a copy of Alan Wake by chance. Since Remedy didn't bother to offer a demo, I was curious to see if my impressions based mostly on videos would be correct. I was hoping it would prove...
Tekken 6 simply comes off as a game in which seemingly nothing has been thoroughly thought out.
After being thoroughly disappointed with Dead or Alive 4, I decided to check out Tekken 6 since it seemed most similar to Dead or Alive. Tekken 6 has a Scenario Campaign Mode which plays like a beat-e...
Braid as a whole is incredibly self-indulgent.
Braid is a 2D puzzle / platformer that revolves around solving puzzles by using a rather clever implementation of time control. Each of the six worlds has its own set of unique rules that the player h...
Like the subtitle says - espionage role-playing game. It's not there for show, it's truly an RPG.
There are missions where you go to meet someone and you talk to them. And that's the entire mission. Almost everything you do and say in Alpha Protocol has some sort of consequence. In a truly brillia...
Amnesia: The Dark Descent
Forget about all those action games pretending to be survival horror, this is the real deal.
Fundamentally, it's an adventure game, but conceptually and philosophically, it's survival horror in its purest form. Amnesia is heavily influenced not only by H.P. Lovecraft's Cthulhu mythos, but als...
