    Shadowrun Returns

    old-school, light and low-budget turn-based RPG<br /> definitely worth to try

    I like the idea of rebuilding good old titles. I played Xcom:Enemy Unknown last year, which was a masterpiece from Firaxis, and As a turn-based RPG shadowrun returns comes off feeling like that. But unlike Xcom, Shadowru... Read Full Review

    DiRT 3

    DiRT comes up in our minds like a very high quality accessible rally simulator. Dirt 3 is completely the same game as its predecessors, no improvement whatsoever, well, except for video presentation. Just after a few hou... Read Full Review

    Solid enough for RTS fans, especially C&C fans, but don't expect anything new or innovative here

    Act of War: Direct Action

    Solid enough for RTS fans, especially C&C fans, but don't expect anything new or innovative here

    The game is told through a mix of live action and animated cut scenes. Although it was fairly obvious that Act of War was just trying to copy the c&c games. You play as an army ranger named John Richter. There are three ... Read Full Review

    NFS Hot Pursuit is very fun game but still it is not the best NFS so far on PC and does not have much re-playability

    First of all; This is not a racing sim by any stretch of the imagination. This is an arcade type racing game and For that I'm grateful. So, if you love sim games like DiRT, GRiD or even NFS Shift, stay away from this one... Read Full Review
