    Dark Souls: Prepare to Die Edition

    Rated on October 29, 2012 by herzalot

    Dark Souls provides moments of pure genuine joy for people who manage to get into it.

    There are games that make you forget the passing of time and fill you with joy and the hope of seeing another day to continue playing them. It doesn't matter what's their genre, release date or critic...

    If we consider Diablo II a leader, Torchlight II is one of its best followers. But just a follower and nothing more.

    Torchlight II

    Rated on October 29, 2012 by herzalot

    If we consider Diablo II a leader, Torchlight II is one of its best followers. But just a follower and nothing more.

    Torchlight is one of those games that its high praise and popularity always makes me wonder. It was an ordinary Diablo clone you see every year without any special features, (Actually, it lacked multi...

    Not the best expansion pack Diablo could get.

    Hellfire

    Rated on September 07, 2012 by herzalot

    Not the best expansion pack Diablo could get.

    It doesn't matter if you have played Diablo or not or what's your opinion about it. You can't deny the fact that it's one of the most influential PC games ever released. By tweaking the formula of rog...

    FoS's best and only reason of existence is concluding Arcania's story. Because other than that, it does nothing.

    Arcania: Fall of Setarrif

    Rated on August 31, 2012 by herzalot

    FoS's best and only reason of existence is concluding Arcania's story. Because other than that, it does nothing.

    Fall of Setarrif is simply made for the sole reason of tying the loose ends and nothing more. It's so short and light on content that it can hardly be called a proper DLC. Let alone a stand-alone add-...

    Gothic 3 provides a once in a lifetime experience for gamers who get along with its bugs and minor glitches.

    Gothic 3 is perhaps among the most ambitious games ever made. But that's a two-sided coin. It's the reason for both praises and hates this game gets . Many people praise this game because of its lit...

    Arcania: Gothic 4

    Arcania offers qualities that can be appreciated by any Gothic fan who's willing to forgive.

    Unfaithful sequels are no news. Generally speaking, sometimes, they alienate the fans, but attract the attention of mainstream, sometimes they alienate the both crowd. Although Arcania falls to the la...

    Garshasp doesn't fill the gap for the lack of top quality H&S on PC, but might make you forget about it for awhile.

    Garshasp had a substantial amount of anticipation in Iran. many gamers thought that it's going to revolutionize the gaming industry in Iran. but many things made me worried about the future of the gam...

    Accessible and deep at the same time, LoG shows the true glory of a dead sub- genre in a very satisfying way.

    Legend of Grimrock

    Rated on June 22, 2012 by herzalot

    Accessible and deep at the same time, LoG shows the true glory of a dead sub- genre in a very satisfying way.

    Legend of Grimrock is a homage to 80s and early 90s first person dungeon crawlers and it shows how fun and rewarding those games were to people ( like myself ) who were not present in those times. ...

    Rated on June 10, 2012 by herzalot

    Costume Quest is short on all of its aspects and just way too casual to be anything worthwhile.

    Costume Quest is a feeble attempt for a Haloween themed casual game from Double Fine and it's just way too underdeveloped and simple in its every aspect to be anything worth remembering. Story i...

    Dink Smallwood

    Rated on February 12, 2012 by herzalot

    As a free game, it is acceptable. But it had the potential to be a lot more bigger and better.

    Dink Smallwood is a free comical RPG. The fact that it's free shows that it's not a big or content-rich game. It can be finished in around 5 hours and the RPG elements are very shallow. But because o...

    The Baconing

    Rated on February 01, 2012 by herzalot

    The Baconing is a good choice for 6-7 hours of simple fun, but the series is in need of a big overhaul to go on strong.

    Baconing's biggest problem is revealed from the minute you start playing it. There are no changes in the structure of game-play and combat. Even in previous games, there were some parts that felt repe...

    Bastion leaves a good first impression and there is enough neat idea in it to make you stay with it till it's finished.

    Bastion's developers knew what they were doing and that's probably the reason why this game holds the player's interest till it lasts. It has a unique style, some neat ideas and also a very good pace ...

    RotA is one of those games that hardly leaves you unsatisfied when you properly play it to the end.

    Between all of the underdog games I have played, I feel sorry for the failure of RotA the most. It's obviously a game that its developers put their heart into making it and they did it with enthusiasm...

    ToV brings more of the same, that can be good or bad depending on how did you feel about the original game.

    A game that you can't think about anything when you're playing it and mostly think about it when you are not playing it.

    PROS: -Gothic has one of the best and more importantly non-cliche story lines in RPG history. It's not the good guy killing the bad guy or save the world kind of thing. Actually, the main aspect of ...
