    If the 20-30 hours of fun doesn't quench your thirst for conquering and massive battles, you can look forward to 40 maps in skirmish mode as well as an extremely entertaining multiplayer - with matches playable in LAN and Internet variants (you'll have fun in online matches to be sure... at least we did). Without even the slightest doubt, GPG and good old Christ Taylor made a spectacular RTS that should keep you occupied for weeks.

    Very playable and is sure to get your attention. However, the relatively small number of mission, and the occasionally dull atmosphere may cause that attention to become short-lived…

    Little things like how you need to hold your breath to shoot a sniper rifle and the use of smoke grenades, as well as the much more significant improvements that deal with the technology and the level design in general, show that Infinity Ward has invested a lot of time and effort into this project.

    All in all Ground Control is a very good 3D real-time strategy, one of the best in the genre, and it deserves a good ride.

    You are missing out on so much if you decide not to play this game.

    Prepare for some frustrations with such a complex campaign, but also prepare to lose hours of your life as you wonder, “But what if I handled that like this…” as you reload your last save for the umpteenth time.

    Many of these elements seem like an experiment gone bad, as opposed to a decent new addition to the gameplay. As a result sometimes it seems you'd be better off just playing the original.

    Players can expect a thoroughly entertaining and deep single-player RPG experience with an intriguing plot, solid quest structure, exciting gameplay and an unbelievably vast world to explore.

    Ultimately, if you liked the previous Sims games, you will like The Sims 3. If the series has never floated your boat, there is nothing here that will make convert you the fan camp.

    An excellent game that retains all the qualities of the original while managing to polish some of its minor flaws and build on the technological aspect of it.

    Our main beef is that the developers have spent an excessive amount of time polishing and perfecting those cinematics and QTEs, instead of developing more engaging puzzles and even the occasional riddle wouldn’t have gone amiss.

    The leveling and unlocks that accompany them, the variety of well-designed maps and game modes, the paper-rock-scissors balance of man vs. robot combat and overall polish that is present throughout this online only multiplayer shooter make it great fun to play. Period. Buckle up Pilot. Prepare for Titanfall!

    The AI puts up a decent fight in every mission.

    It is a better game than "Diablo II" in almost every aspect (save the multiplayer and the audio - D2's audio isn't anything to write home about either), and is well worth every penny spent.

    LEGO Star Wars II improves in every way on its predecessors, making the core gameplay more engaging, the audio and visual experience more appealing and the jokes funnier.

    All things considered, the first-rate production values, challenging missions and compelling atmosphere should keep you hooked (though for a brief period). The most obvious problem with the main campaign is that it's too darn short, hardly worth the game's retail price.

    As short games go, I must say that this is one of the shortest I've played. It has its moments of brilliance and I'm glad to have played it, but I really am not sure if I would pay $50 bucks for it.

    Just an extremely satisfying game, even with its occasional glitches. If you're into dynamic combat and constant chaotic over-the-top action, Dmc is the game to buy. It's a shame they didn't make the story longer, since it won't take an average gamer more than 6-7 hours to finish it on normal difficulty.

    An Assassin’s Creed game hasn’t been this good since Assassin’s Creed 2. There are some regrettable elements of repetition that have stuck with the series and are still present, although nothing that would get in the way of some solid action, realistic and incredibly exciting naval battles, in addition to the variety of activities Kenway undertakes in order to satisfy his lust for riches.

    The game is regressive in a sense that it doesn't bring anything new to the field of online shooters - it's as straightforward and arcadish as online shooters get, and at the same time, it's highly progressive with its incredible physics, 3D, and net code.

    Great and clean turn-based strategy fun with an exciting plot, loads of realms to explore, spells to use, and enemies to ice.

    Car models are practically flawless and the best we've ever seen in a driving sim. Enough races and challenges to keep you occupied for some time. Good AI. Topnotch physics.

    An immensely entertaining RTS experience. The combat is visceral, massive and fast-paced and the story is worthy of its great license.

    An acquired taste. It is the best of its kind but it still takes a certain mindset to fully enjoy (read: patient people). If you're a twitch shooter and think stealth is for sissies, you might want to rethink any decision to buy this game.

    The writing isn't superb, but the visual style and the art direction are immaculate.

    The traversing in a platform adventure is the most fluid and seamless I’ve ever experienced, and the story gave me chills the more I unraveled, especially with the collectibles I found.

    The fourteen new missions will provide at least twenty new hours of fun.

    If you have no suicidal tendencies, you better never play Europa Universalis on your own; always have a friend at your side to turn off your computer when he notices you haven't had any food, water nor sleep for several days.

    The colors are much lighter and cheerful than in "Grim Fandango."

    Enemy Within is how XCOM was meant to be played. It takes all the great things from the original and refurbishes them with all sorts of cool new additions to the gameplay. If you haven’t been introduced to the XCOM universe yet, this would be the right time to start.
