    The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings

    CD Projekt reinvigorates the modern CRPG genre with a mature game that is as visually stunning as it is non-linear.

    Very few PC RPGs ever caused as much chaos or uncontested critical acclaim as 2007's "The Witcher", and as a devout PC RPG fan it always bothered me that I could never like it the way everyone else around me did. While I... Read Full Review

    Dragon Age II

    EA sinks their teeth into Bioware and leaves them a dusty, dry husk. Dragon Age, as a series, is now no more.

    Bioware's 2009 hit CRPG Dragon Age was meant to be the successor to Baldur's Gate, but as much as it tried to replicate the hardcore aspects of that amazing series it did not do so. Instead, much to my surprise, Dragon A... Read Full Review

    Crysis 2

    Asserting their negative influence, EA seems to have convinced stalwart PC supporter Crytek to give in to consolization.

    Perhaps known more for being a benchmarking test than an actual game, the original Crysis was a very misunderstood title. While many hardcore PC gamers appreciated its open-ended gameplay and ahead-of-its-time technology... Read Full Review

    Polish developer People Can Fly abandons their Painkiller formula & allows Epic Games to sully their reputation

    Though time hasn't been very kind to gaming in terms of depth and complexity, no genre has seen the ill effects of "mainstreaming" more than the modern day first person shooter. Unlike RPGs and strategy games which still... Read Full Review

    Compile Heart, still having not learned the basics of good JRPG design, brings out yet another sub-standard game.

    In this dark age of the JRPG, an era where western roleplaying games have become the dominant game type within the genre, it's getting hard to resist even the most horrible looking title when you're this desperate for a ... Read Full Review

    Two Worlds 2 improves upon the original but comes up short in its quest to rise above its better playing competition.

    Though Idea Factory learned from Cross Edge's mistakes, Trinity Universe shows they still have some lessons to learn.

    Megaten returns to its roots with a game that is held back only by its portable nature, not by its designer's ambition.

    Though most people probably don't realize it yet, the Shin Megami Tensei series (also known in its shortened form as "megaten") has become as popular and as relevant within the hobby as Square's own Final Fantasy saga. W... Read Full Review

    Metro 2033

    When it comes to FPS games, Ukrainians know what works...and Metro 2033, like S.T.A.L.K.E.R., is more proof of that.<br

    As a huge S.T.A.L.K.E.R. fanboy the temptation to buy Metro 2033 was always hard to resist. Though the game had the familiar look and feel of GSC Gameworld's famous shooter, it also had a fair amount of controversy surro... Read Full Review

    One of RPG gaming's best kept secrets returns with a prequel that is in every way better than its previous installment.

    2009's European import CRPG "Drakensang" was the kind of game I like to call a "slow burn" title. By that, I mean it started out moderately fun and as time went by I found it to be more and more compelling and addictive ... Read Full Review
