Venetica is a great RPG/ACTION/ADVENTURE game lead by a well written story.
I have got the feeling that the gap is widening between European and American gamers. Especially concerning PC role-playing games. While in the US people seem to ask for more and more visually stunni...
Silent Hill 2: Director's Cut
A thousand living deads are less dire to face than a single loving dead.
I have been haunted by Silent Hill 2 for many days. And now that the game is finished I feel like I am back from a far away trip, or rather from the depth of a long fever. Emotionally, it's a succe...
Unreal II: The Awakening
*LOOKS GREAT! SOUNDS OKAY. PLAYS AVERAGE...*<br /> A pleasant but not so exciting shooter.
As a single player experience, Unreal II is not up to par with its predecessor which was terribly involving. Graphically, it is definitely a great achievement for a game of this generation. But neithe...
Space Rangers 2: Dominators
*NOT EXACTLY A RPG... BUT A DARN GOOD GAME ANYWAY!*<br /> At last a space strategy game that won't make RPGist yawn to
I have always wanted to like space-strategy games. And tried quite a few of them! But every time, from Imperium Galactica to Master of Orion series, or more recently Sword of the Stars, I inevitably e...
* BRINGS BACK THE DIABLO THRILL *<br /> A beautiful, smooth and addicting experience.
Ten years ago Diablo was a revelation. I played it endlessly. But the enjoyment of running-around/clicking/collecting-items finally died. The action-rpg of this kind has became, for me at least, synon...
The Temple of Elemental Evil
* BE SMART, OR BE DEAD! *<br /> A real challenge, and a great learning tool.
Temple of Elemental Evil is a slow paced and delightful RPG focused on the strategic aspect of Dungeon & Dragon. The story is rather bland, and fighting is what makes it shine. If you don't like turn ...
Might and Magic III: Isles of Terra
*MORE THAN A CURIOSITY*<br /> Might & magic III is a delighting game to play, even in the 21th century.
The Might & Magic series has been revolutionized with the software 3D rendering mode of Might & Magic VI. But there is a life, before MM6! If you have played MM6 and later games of the series, you wil...
* "GOTHIC III, I LOVE YOU... BUT YOU'RE A B1TCH!" *
Gothic III is like a woman who irritates you until the point you want to break up, but who in the last minute knows how to coax you into staying with her. I LOVE YOU when swarming orcs fall around...
Can't stop playing it, though it's propably the more repetitive game I have ever loaded on my hard-drive.
This game is so smooth, so easy to play, so polished, that you could use it as screen-saver. When surrounded by many foes, if your team is well balanced an equipped, you REALLY can leave the game and ...
Neverwinter Nights 2
An ambitious project, obviously and sadly unfinished.
I consider Baldur's gate I & II, fallout I & II, Arcanum and Planescape, my favourite isometric RPGs. At this list you must add KOTOR, which I didn't like at first, but is now among the games ...
Broken Sword: The Smoking Mirror
Fun, smart humour, nice characters and cool puzzles. Very enjoyable cartoonish game.
Gameplay, humour, and graphics, also the puzzles, are very similar to the first game of the series. You still deplore the fact that Nico and Georges seem unable to run and slowly walk from one point t...
Circle of Blood
"Old school fun"... or... "Talent doesn't need a 3D card"
I am surprised, and quite glad, to notice from the reviews on this page that I am not alone to play 10 years old PC games (my god, 10 years old games! Ain't we weiiiird!) Circle of Blood is full of...
A milestone in history of computer gaming.
Seven years after its release, Deus Ex is still a terribly exciting mix of action, RPG, science fiction and suspense. The story in which you are deeply involved is compelling. The gameplay is a perfec...
The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind
I like Morrowind so much, I always come back to playing it. Even after Oblivion, it's still the best of the series.
It has been such a relief, after the disappointment that Oblivion has been to me, to set up Morrowind again on my Hard-Drive. And to go back to this place that, though still full of surprises, sometim...
The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion
Weak RPG, rather an action/adventure/shooter game. A dumbed down Elder Scrolls aiming at the largest audience's wallet.
If you are not a RPG player, and you enjoy action and console games, you will certainly love this game. But please, don't misunderstand Oblivion for a real Role-Playing game. I have read comments like...
Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic
As for a good vintage wine, time has been good with KOTOR. I have come to play and appreciate this game... A lot!
I have just edited and deleted my old negative review of this game, written three years ago. At the time, I rated KOTOR as low as 5.8. Mainly because of its consolish feeling, the rigid inventory syst...
Kult: Heretic Kingdoms
Good surprise: This game is very enjoyable, and offers a lot more than you may assume at first look.
Yes, this kind of isometric RPG looks old at first sight. But the 3D characters on the 2D background blend rather well, and great attention has been given to details. I must admit that during the firs...
Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines
The talented and gothic little brother of Deus Ex.
I feel so sorry for Troïka, a sacrificed company who had the genius of crafting Arcanum and this excellent Bloodlines. Those guys are real artists and deserve a place in the pantheon of pixelised...
An(other) unfair review from gamespot, as often for games that don't have an "hollywood" feeling about them.
"All substance, no flash" The time when gamespot reviewers really loved computer games has gone for long. You can't get a good review any more, if the budget of the company that crafted ...
Prince of Qin
The most under-rated gem, ever.
This is NOT a diablo clone. This is NOT a Baldur's clone either. POQ is a really original and entertaining game. Moreover, it's one of the extremely rare action-RPGs that really deserves to be called ...
