    Great Storyline, but the battles are way to easy

    BioShock

    Great Storyline, but the battles are way to easy

    Bioshock is a game that has already been hyped to the heavens and beyond even before its release. After completing this game, I must say this, yes, its a masterpiece of storytelling, and it is almost the full package, bu... Read Full Review

    Fun game, but main quest is too short and packed with bugs

    The Elder Scrolls IV: Shivering Isles

    Fun game, but main quest is too short and packed with bugs

    I loved Oblivion, and I was looking forward to pick up SI but it was distributed a month late in my country. Thank God! Cos during the 1 month, the game killing F-bomb (Form ID) bug was discovered on SI and PC modders w... Read Full Review

    Not the best Bioware effort, but a good game to play nevertheless

    Jade Empire: Special Edition (PC GAMER)

    Not the best Bioware effort, but a good game to play nevertheless

    I still remember being pretty pissed off when I heard that JE was going to be an Xbox exclusive. Finally, I now have a chance to play it on my PC. If I have to wait that long for Mass Effect to be ported......(Com'on Bio... Read Full Review

    Supreme Commander

    Good game, but not enough separating the 3 races

    Gameplay. I'll complain on the bad later. The good thing is, this game handles the epic with a capital 'E'. The no of units and the explosions when they meet the enemy is the stuff many of us gamers can only previously d... Read Full Review

    The main mission ain't something to shout about. But a good bargain for this price

    The Elder Scrolls IV: Knights of the Nine

    The main mission ain't something to shout about. But a good bargain for this price

    Gameplay: I tried hard to like the Knights storyline, I really do. But collecting parts of an armour and weapons so I can kill a powerful end boss? God, its so cliched. I was hoping for some sort of twist but it never ca... Read Full Review
