    Conqiustador's main problem is its small budget. You can't shake the feeling that lots of things weren't finished properly or were simply drafted. The developer's ambition was big, the end result is not that great. There are too few adventures, a too simple character development system, too schematic battles and the game lacks the option to act for yourself (instead, you always work for someone). All of this adds up to a sandbox game with an interesting universe and original story, that is boring and limited.

    Alien Rage is better than Sniper 2, but still looks like a game quickly put together. What's not good? An inconsistent basis for the game, unused potential of the "special kills" system and terrible AI. Still you need to remember, that Alien Rage isn't a AAA title, and as such will surely find an audience. But it's a pity that a truly excellent shooting mechanic wasn't used for something more special.

    Ryse: Son of Rome is a perfect launch title - it's easy, understandable and extremely pretty. But is it a good game, worth a considerable amount of your money? Not entirely - for instance, you can complete Ryse in a few hours without a sweat. Still - I liked it, but remember: if not for my huge hunger for the new generation, I would wait until the game's price drops. A lot.

    Fable is as charming and playable as ever, but the anniversary version is a technical disaster. The developer should have waited till September and use the time to polish this pearl. This game deserves a much higher grade. If you remember loving Fable a lot some years ago and are a forgiving person - buy it. In any other case playing the original will do just fine.

    The new Tropico can be recommended only to those who aren't familiar with the series. For everyone else (especially for fans of this tropical dictatorship) buying Tropico 5 will be a missed investment - the developers are offering the same bottle of rum with a different label. It's still the same good, old Tropico - without significant changes in gameplay, flawed merchant routes system, technical issues and the addition of a multiplayer mode.

    Sacred 3 is so very different from previous installments in this series, that gamers that appreciate classic h'n's mechanics and open world exploration will be extremely disappointed. Keen Games have produced a game dedicated to consoles and "couch gaming". But if you put aside your prejudice, you could enjoy Sacred 3 - it's a pretty good action game with a funny fantasy setting. Fans of the classics have to keep playing Diablo, Path of Exile or wait for Grim Dawn.

    Dead Rising 3 should appeal to people enjoying short, simple fun in a world full of imaginary possibilities (especially when they do it in cooperation). The game definitely will be fun for fans of zombies (it's pretty much a must buy for them). All in all, Dead Rising 3 is a good but monotonous game that had some bad luck. First it had to be finished for Xbox One's premiere (a giant patch followed) and now it's very poorly optimized.

    It is extremely hard to recommend a game which seems half-baked, has a short single-player campaign and is ugly. Leaders of the genre can remain calm – Korea's invasion of USA isn't a big enough reason to sound an alarm. Who knows, perhaps an announced sequel will become such a reason? For now, I still count on the developers' hard work with patching up their latest product.

    The Cartel has some charm, style and can be fun. Unfortunately it's not a good game - mediocre at best and the developers should work on it for several more months. Maybe then gang fights wouldn't be so frustrating and embarrassing. Techland has produced a low quality game but fortunately it doesn't make your brain permanently damaged. We wait for another delivery and redemption in the form of Dead Island.

    Dungeons lost its chances for success due to errors of graphical and technical nature. The gameplay (especially at the beginning) gives some satisfaction - but so what? Programmers' sloppiness prevents you from having real fun and the graphics make this game look 6 or 7 years old. It's a mediocre game at best even though the mechanics and story are really good. The developers had ideas for 3 hours of game and lethal monotony can kill even the most patient gamer. It's not tragic but with that kind of content, without any multiplayer and with a boring campaign it wastes our time.

    The PC version of Call of Juarez: The Cartel is still a game that should be worked on for a couple more months. Some strange and unprofessional gameplay solutions and technical issues can surprise many Techland fans. We got used to the fact that this Polish developer makes some mistakes because they are hard to avoid with more and more complicated games. This does not explain, however, why The Cartel is so mediocre - the entire Call of Juarez franchise suffers from it.

    Despite an interesting concept, Of Orcs and Men is a mediocre and poor game even for an action RPG. The entire world fits into several dozen simple paths and there are almost no secondary quests. What is more, there's a too simple progress system and a boring story (which was a strong point of Cyanide's A Game of Thrones). Of Orcs and Men has an interesting team of lead characters, but that's not enough for a quite long adventure ahead. If only the developers had spend more time making the game and not just copying things from their previous title, it would be much better.

    I don't see much sense in buying Impire. The game is mediocre and has no redeeming qualities in its multiplayer mode (the only thing you do is bring more and more monsters to the battle). Why such a "high" grade then? Impire can be quite fun in small doses. The single player campaign is pleasant and the game looks nice (with the exception of cut-scenes), but that's pretty much it. If you need a good Dungeon Keeper-like game, you should go and play Dungeon Keeper 2.

    Deadpool is wasted potential. The story and lots of great humor would be enough to make this game one of the best comic book adaptations, if only the gameplay was on the same level. Unfortunately it isn't - the game has lot of issues and quickly becomes boring (there are some interesting innovations from time to time, but that's not enough). High Moon Studios delivered a product that makes fun of clichés, but at the same time is one of them. Only for fans of Deadpool and crazy atmosphere.

    "Letdown" and "lost potential" are two key phrases that fit Car Mechanic Simulator 2014. The game suffers from repetitiveness and monotony - after a while there are no surprises and various ways of solving problems. The game has a lot of interesting ideas, and the theme is original, but all in all there's not enough attention to detail and not enough gripping gameplay.

    The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing II is a very weak sequel with lots of technical issues and poor choices in terms of gameplay mechanics. New adventures of Van Helsing is still funny and can show off its excellent, steampunk atmosphere, but all in all it's not a good game. The developers failed to fix mistakes from the original and added some new ones.

    Enemy Front is a chaotic, poorly thought-out product that mixes good elements with some really bad ones. The developers weren't able to utilize CryEngine's power and did not deliver on their promise of sandbox gameplay. It's a shame because the game has some solid foundations for a good WWII shooter. Enemy Front is better that Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2, but all in all it's a disappointment.

    Despite my best wishes and my fondness for Arrowhead Studios, it's hard to call Magicka: Vietnam anything else but a product designed for a fast buck. I believe that the game's price shouldn't influence its overall grade but I have to revise that statement. One hour of fun for half of the full game's price is ridiculous.

    The game not only doesn't fulfill all the hopes we have put in it (lets' be honest – that was impossible), but even when looking at it without thinking about the legend, it seem extremely mediocre. Ugly graphics, cliché gaming mechanics and a general lack of attention to details resemble a typical budget production.

    I think nothing would have happened if Burnout Crash! never existed. Unless it's an advertisement, a reminder of the title just before the announcement of a next big installement. In any other case, you shouldn't bother. It looks nice and was obviously prepared by a talented studio. But that's not enough in the wake of boredom and frustration. It's subjective, I know, but that's the best description of the time spent with this game. Burnout Crash! is a perfect game for no one - it can't interest a fan of the series (and I'm one) as well as a regular player. The developers missed a corner here.

    Did Firefly fulfill their promises to deliver a worthy successor of the first game for their fans? Definitely not. Even when you don't look at its many minor flaws, you simply cannot overlook all these elements that transform a relaxing medieval game into a catalyst of negative emotions. Stronghold 3 is the hardest game of the series. I don't mind a high level of difficulty, but it should rely on the game's quests and missions, not the mechanics.

    The developers have cut corners and offer us only new missions with some minor flaws. But Condemned Heroes still can be fun. The problem is this: 1C have created a game for the most hardcore fans of the series only - those who have completed previous installments and want more. The rest should stay with basic Men of War and the Assault Squad expansion.

    Iron Front: Liberation 1944 struggles with the tag "ArmA II with WWII units". Unfortunately the game fails to show that it's something more than that. Iron Front brings new errors to the Real Virtuality engine, and sometimes it manifests some new errors - therefore it creates a time machine to the year 2009. Of course, there are patches that fix some of the flaws, but the gamers' have been offered an inferior product.

    Hearthfire is an expansion without new missions - it provides only a couple of options that should have been there from the beginning. Many players will be let down, but those that want to "play house" and deepen the experience of living in the game world, should consider buying this DLC. Dragonborn's motivation for saving the world becomes greater, but the problem is this - most of the player have already saved everything there was to save and getting a virtual family won't be enough for them to return to Skyrim.

    Iron Sky: Invasion isn't a bad game. There is a chance, that some fans of space flights and fights will enjoy it. But you need to remember, that it's a simple game that looks more like a complex indie game and if not for the movie tie-in, no one would have heard about it. The politics plays no part in the gameplay, the fights are slow and have a bad difficulty balance. A good idea is not enough to make an interesting game.

    It's a weak DLC. Things as important as the story or gameplay leave a lot to be desired, and the only valuable part of this expansion is the cast. New characters are interesting and have unique skills, that make playing this DLC bearable. Unfortunately - you have to demand more from such a pricey expansion. Stupid story, boring locations and monotonous gameplay that consists only of shooting are the key features of Omega. It's one of the worst DLCs in Mass Effect history, and perhaps even in BioWare's.

    Sniper 2 is a big disappointment. It's hard to hide mixed (at best!) feelings, after all these grand and confident announcements, after the tales of a big budget and promises of a new quality based on CryEngine 3. Still - there is fun in there somewhere. You can enjoy being thrown into exotic places, completing some of the tougher challenges and taking some really spectacular shots. Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2 can appeal to enthusiasts of the sniper profession, but they have to accept all the flaws and the fact that last year's Sniper Elite V2 is a much better game.

    Goat Simulator was born from a joke and is exactly that - a silly little game with tons of bugs - but the joke ends after 60 minutes of gameplay. I gave the game a middle grade, but it really has to get extremely cheap very soon. And if you seriously want to buy yourself a goat, maybe consider getting a real one.

    Murdered has some really strong foundations but not enough real substance. The game lacks atmosphere fit for this kind of game and the story takes you down a really obvious road. Hiring a BAFTA winner, Jason Graves, who was responsible for Tomb Raider's music, didn't help. Murdered: Soul Suspect is a big disappointment - a weak thriller and a far-too-easy adventure game.

    Mythos is a very mediocre game. It's not a bad creation but it lacks some standard qualities. It's ugly, has some extremely dull quests, uninspired character progression and is generally boring. All of that piles up on top of a few good things – crafting, guilds, pretty cities and the fact that it's free to play.
