The series goes back to its fairy tale origins. Nice graphics and animations but it's hard not to miss the darker mood.
Prince of Persia will be undoubtedly known for its boldness to change. From the Disney like Sands of Time to the dark and bloody Two Thrones and now back to fairy tales in 2008. The game's tone and focus has dramatically... Read Full Review6 of 6 users found the following review helpful

Although it clearly benefited from a very good technical team, Rule of Rose sinks due to poor design choices.

Psi-Ops combines gameplay, level design and psi-powers in an interesting and captivating experience.

Need For Speed Underground is one of those wonderful driving games that fascinates even those who dislike driving.

Siren is not everyone's game. You'll either fall in love with it or just leave it to gather dust in your shelf.
