    Comic book fans will take to this one like a fat guy to an all you can eat buffet (in some cases we are talking about the same person), but players who are looking for an action RPG that offers great visuals, polished gameplay and solid co-op for the roughly 20 hours to complete the game should pick up Marvel Ultimate Alliance.

    A worthy sequel to the original and an engaging tactical RTS game. The sequel is more elaborate, comprehensive and technically advanced than the original.

    Beautiful visuals are accompanied by an amazingly atmospheric soundtrack, which perfectly blends with the furious style of rally racing.

    Possesses the same degree of replay value as the original game. Once gamers have gone through the entire new campaign, they can find a lot of new and interesting things to experiment with the next time around - a characteristic that should define any decent RPG.

    The gameplay is complex, nonlinear and addictive.

    If there is a problem with the game it's that it offers nothing new to this style of game that hasn't already come from the Boob Raider saga. That's not to say it's a bad game. It a great game.

    This is far from a reinvention of the RTS genre, but it is certainly a much needed rebirth for this series. At long last, the king has returned.

    At least Sherlock Holmes: Crimes & Punishments can be broken up into manageable chunks in between your other gaming sessions. If you’re a fan of Sherlock Holmes or mysteries in general, I can’t recommend this one enough.

    Bottom line is I had loads of fun playing BF 2142 in multiplayer.

    Outlast is a game designed to frighten even those who deem themselves hard to scare. What we have here is a proper survival-horror game that thankfully doesn’t make the transition to the action genre like so many other horror-themed games these days.

    Assassin’s Creed Syndicate does incredibly well most of what they set out to do, and Ubisoft has redeemed the series quite a bit with this new offering. It’s sadly still not as polished as it could be, which is most likely due to the annualization of this series.

    Just remember, if you do decide to hang out in the Himalayas, stop and enjoy the scenery. The environments are absolutely breathtaking.

    For gamers who dig various deadly weaponry, Buffy: the Vampire Slayer is packed with a diversity of vampire-icing thingies, most of which have to be handled with care or they can be quite deadly to you as well.

    It's hampered with a number of issues that originally wouldn't have existed if only the game was designed with the PC in mind. But even as it is, Deus Ex: Invisible War is an intelligent, mature and engrossing project that deserves the attention of every self-respecting shooter/adventure game fan out there.

    As an immersive and anxious experience that also manages to be just as beautiful as it is terrifying, SOMA is in a class all its own.

    Visually, the Commandos universe seems more atmospheric and immersive than ever before, and the addition of multiplayer increases the game's replay value.

    The multiplayer has one great option -- players can choose any nation from any period of human history, which means you can try out German plains from WW II and employ them against fierce Russian futuristic tanks.

    Fans of Wolfenstein of old will appreciate how it has grown and matured, and newcomers will enjoy playing in this horrific alternate history. Not to mention, every day is a great day to shoot Nazis.

    Prototype easily stomps over numerous boring movie-based action games we've seen lately and effectively covers all the necessary themes to engulf gamers in a relatively interesting horror/sci-fi story.

    May not be as involving and complex as the Microsoft’s classic "Rise of Nations" or Creative Assembly’s epic "Shogun: Total War," but it does blend many different gameplay elements that make it an exciting RTS experience. Visually breathtaking scenes coupled with intriguing scenarios and a well-structured storyline should be enough to satisfy any RTS fan.

    In terms of tactics, the possibilities are almost endless.

    A great arcade platformer, which is still a rarity on PC, excellent atmosphere, low frustration level, humor, and did I mention the game has reasonable price tag of $19.99...

    Etherlords and its 3D fantasy world are capable of holding players glued to the screen for hours.

    The reason I finished it so quickly was because the story was fairly well put together and the gameplay was a good mix of styles - several run-'n'-gun levels where you run full bore, guns blazing, and 2 very interesting missions involving stealth.

    As long as you understand what you are signing up for, you should be fine. Just don't expect you are playing a less expensive version of Skyrim.

    The single-player campaign is extremely lengthy for an expansion pack. You'll be getting your money's worth in every way. It took me hours just to get to the second act. Really nice job by Ensemble to offer this much quality content for their fans.

    Darksiders 2 gets a slightly lower score than the original, because it doesn't take much of an effort to surprise players. The gameplay mechanics are, in fact, all-too-familiar, while the narrative takes us on a relatively predictable path.

    Bloodmoon possesses several new and intriguing elements that include diverse new items, weaponry, indoor and outdoor environments, monsters, etc... True fans shouldn't miss it.

    EA Sports has went all out to deliver changes to the core gameplay mechanics, resulting in an authentic football experience, with unparalleled levels of depth and complexity.

    You could say that Dishonored has a sufficient amount of alternative paths and mission outcomes to warrant several playthroughs (again, something you won't find in many games today). The PC version was spared of a few graphical issues that appear to be plaguing the consoles editions, so I guess that's another good reason to go with this variant.
