    A good starting point for this hack and slash.

    Torchlight

    A good starting point for this hack and slash.

    At the time that Torchlight was released in 2009, it was intended to be a rival to Diablo. It was a low budget game sold at around 20$ on the release date. I have heard so often of it that I needed to try it. However, it... Read Full Review

    First of all, I never played Majesty 1. Therefore, I will not compare both here. I will review from a point of view from a newcomer to this franchise. The tutorial is made well enough so that you get used to most of t... Read Full Review

    Wolfenstein

    Wolfenstein is a shooter that comes directly from the early 2000.

    Right at the beginning of the game, Wolfenstein feels like it is coming from the lat 90's early 00's. It is not necessarily a con, but you must be prepared for this. If you hope to see something similar to Battlefiel... Read Full Review

    By wanting to be a sim, it failed being an arcade or a sim racing game.

    Need for Speed: Shift

    By wanting to be a sim, it failed being an arcade or a sim racing game.

    EA has put a lot of marketing on Shift, praising that it was a competitor to Gran Turismo and Forza. However, it is not. By doing this, they put the arcade style aside and now it just seems to be neither of the 2 types. ... Read Full Review
