    The point of the matter is: we like this game.

    The game works excellently both as a co-op game and as a classic competitive multiplayer experience.

    GTA3 suffers a bit from console porting syndrome, and the designers could've worked a bit more on the whole side-quest concept, but I think you'll find that in the end, this is one addictive, intelligent and original game that's definitely worth your money.

    The replay value of this game is very good, as I've found out that MP matches can be quite intense, and after all, this is where the truly creative players should sparkle.

    The musical score is monumental in a sense and it reminds me of that theme song in "Gladiator" - the one which plays during that scene when Maximus is walking through a crop field near his home.

    This is a rare gem among modern-day games. It proves that even the simplest concept can be pushed beyond the limits few people dare to explore. It’s a valiant experiment and one that has brought some truly satisfying results.

    It’s a sensation few games can match.

    The variety of units is amazing and it's easy to get caught up in multiplayer skirmishes. Granted, infrequent AI bugs may cause a few annoying moments, but that can easily be fixed with an update in the near future.

    Bayonetta 2 is one of the best action games of this generation, and close to one of the best overall.

    What really impressed me about Alice's visuals is the imaginativeness of the designers, and the highly thematic environments, which completely differ from one level to another and are brought to life with some crisp and detailed textures.

    It would be a real shame if it ended up as unnoticed as "Grim Fandango."

    In spite of certain drawbacks, I went through the entire single-player campaign and had a great time. Things were moved up a notch in Fable II (a bit more than just a notch, actually), but on the whole, you can expect the same kind of experience as in The Lost Chapters. We mean that in a good way.

    I noticed that Bioware substantially improved (optimized) the Infinity engine. At one point, I found my company fighting with about forty Drow slaves without slowing the game or frame-rate down.

    I keep finding more and more things to do and work towards in Wildstar that I sometimes find myself torn by what to focus on next.

    Its intuitive interface allows anyone to grasp the tools necessary to start making films immediately, as well as providing an outlet for the future Stanley Kubricks of the world to get busy working on the world's next great film.

    The LEGO Movie Videogame was one of the few LEGO games that instantly made me want to play more upon finishing the story mode.

    I have become so jaded with idiotic titles that this one comes as a true breath of fresh air; with its strong attention to the important aspects of game design. This is the type of game I would go out and buy for myself... if that's worth anything to you.

    This one will be liked both by hardcore fans of the series and by the newcomers (who will do well by choosing the "easy" level of difficulty. "Insane" level is really insane, at least for a non-sports person like me. And yes, TH now has difficulty settings).

    It feels smashing to play it, but it’s almost even more fun to watch someone else play it.

    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.

    Original, amusing addictive, and most of all incredibly fun and relaxing to play. If we only had more great ideas like these…

    This is quite simply an action RPG that has everything for both fans and newcomers to the genre. Don't miss out on it.

    One of the most enjoyable platformers we've experienced in recent times. Mark of the Ninja is a really nice surprise and definitely one of the best indie games we've tried this year.

    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!

    It's safe to say that NFS: Most Wanted is perfectly balanced between real-life steering and physics and arcade-style handling.

    For a long time comic book fan and MMORPG player like myself, City of Heroes is a dream come true.

    Killing a boss is more rewarding than in other games out there, because you know how much practice went into that effort. I enjoyed Bloodborne as much as I have enjoyed the Dark Souls games. That means it kicks ass.

    Thankfully the development team also reduced certain impractical elements from CMR 3 such as excessive spinning on tarmac and asphalt. It's no biggie, but it feels a bit more realistic and straightforward, that's all.

    The past week of my life has been devoted to the Reaper of Souls and I have to say it wasn’t easy getting out of the game. The damn thing had me hooked so bad I had to explain my mysterious absence to all my friends and family.

    The gameplay in Civilization 5 is still as addictive as ever.
