    Tropico 3 is not only a faithful adaptation of a classic idea, it’s also the best game Haemimont has ever made.

    Long-term value is one of the many deciding factors in purchasing this game. It’s already receiving more content, it’s cheap, and it’s really good about killing stuff. Buying Killing Floor is easily one of the best purchasing decisions you can make this year.

    What the game does – a single-player campaign – it does very well, and if you enjoyed the rich scenarios of previous games in the series you probably own this game already. If you don't, and if you're looking for an entry point into the phenomenon, this is as stellar a place to start as any.

    From the beginning of the game, till the ending, I was relatively pleased with how important and impactful the decisions I made were.

    Visually I was left with the impression of an old engine updated with a few modern tricks in an attempt to bring it back to life.

    This is an AAA title, a big gun; it goes up against recent hits like Rift and holds its own.

    The content is in abundance, the gameplay is mostly solid, and the child-like humor is all there, but it just feels like something is missing to make the whole experience great.

    If you're not already the kind of gamer who obsesses over making an extra 2% rate of return on investment, this game probably isn't for you, but for those that enjoy business simulation games and are willing to put the time into learning how Patrician IV works, this game delivers incredible value.

    Dungeons of Dredmor makes you respect death, where many games simply laugh in its face.

    Dead Island is absolutely a fun and very playable game and worth the money, even if it lacks the incredible detail and more serious challenge of Dead Rising 2. Dead Island may lack new ideas, but it makes up for it with simple playability, and often that's all anyone wants in a game.

    Red Faction: Armageddon to me is a good B movie.
    • 89 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    It's hard to tell how it'll pan out over the years, but right now, this is a great game burdened with new, confused players, technical problems, and a lack of information as to how to be effective on the field. It's a Battlefield game alright, but it's going to need some time and work before it becomes a worthy time sink.

    For all the things that don't work well, the exciting combat and deep world make KAR a very worthy game to play. It's a shame Electronic Arts is doing such a poor job of promoting it, as there is enough here to make the foundation of a very solid franchise.

    The Darkness II is a decent shooter, but there is nothing in it that is amazing; it's respectable but mostly predictable.

    It very much feels like Creative Assembly has peaked creatively.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 79 Critic Score
    Its biggest issue may be its release date: there are simply better games competing for your dollar in the marketplace right now.

    Graphically, Tycoon City is gorgeous.

    What I didn’t love was the mediocre multiplayer component, which was purely a deathmatch fest with a single game mode.
    • 63 Metascore

    A solid 3 rd person action brawler with responsive controls and enough fun included to force me to play through the game more than once and then to play through the more difficult bonus levels.

    If it were a thirty dollar expansion pack it would have been lovely... but... it’s just not a good deal.

    Raven took all the good things first person shooters have been doing since Half-Life and Unreal...it works--sort of--but the end result is a bit messy nonetheless.

    It’s the multiplayer portion that is worth your money.

    While that may be one thousand words of criticism, overall I would recommend Mafia II. It's hard to deeply explain the positives because I'd hate to give away some of the more jaw-dropping ain't-that-cool aspects to the game.

    By far one of the shortest campaign experiences that I have played in some time.

    Probably the best soundtrack ever produced for a game.

    Boasting over 30 hours of play time, multiple difficulty levels and an online component, Titan Quest offers enough gameplay content to make it worth a look.

    One of the biggest differences in this game is that you exert a lot of control over your main character.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 76 Critic Score
    It’s a good game that has many bugs and doesn’t seem to be appropriately optimized.

    A gripping story, brutal violence at times (well, machine violence), superb graphics, and clever adult humor are all things this game shares with "Alice." Repetitive flying and ship battles with too few on-foot missions add negatively to the game.

    Cossacks II was built to be played over and over. The only question is would you want to?
