    It's good but no cigar

    The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt

    It's good but no cigar

    The Witcher was one of the great games that people still talk about. The Witcher 2 was aimed at the console market and as such for the PC gamer was a bit of a letdown. So where does the third and final outing for Gera... Read Full Review

    Another poor release from SI

    Last year SI released FM 2013 to much anger and annoyance from the players, and rightly so. The bugs were many and the match engine, a major component of the game was truly awful. A few patches were thrown at it to mak... Read Full Review

    Saints Row IV

    A game too far for the saints row franchise

    Saints Row has always been an over the top, tongue in cheek title that put the emphasis firmly on fun. This time however the devs have completely missed the mark. Maybe it's simply a game too far for the saints row fra... Read Full Review

    Soaking your head in a vat of acid is probably more fun than playing this game.

    Masters of the World, Geopolitcal Simulator 3

    Soaking your head in a vat of acid is probably more fun than playing this game.

    First let me start off by saying that this game could have been a jewel in the deep strategy simulation crown. Instead it is a badly put together piece of trash that assumes from the off that the player is an expert eco... Read Full Review

    The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

    The hype train left the station before the game had been played enough

    Now don't get me wrong, I like Skyrim, it's a good game; but it isn't a great game. The title suffers on the PC because it was developed for the consoles; a fact all too evident by every pre-release developer video bein... Read Full Review

    A Game of Thrones: Genesis

    A game of micromanagment

    There is such a thing as making a game just too involved and A game of thrones does just that. If the title were turn based then micro-managment is okay; it involves the player and immerses him into the strategy and tac... Read Full Review

    Fallout 3 meets Auto Assault meets Firefly and fails on all counts.

    When you take your first tentative steps into Rage the overall feel of Fallout 3 leaps out at you and this is no bad thing. But then you realise that there is no character creation, no skills to build up and nothing els... Read Full Review
