    Assassin's Creed: Liberation HD is considerably better than some cheap remakes that offer only higher screen resolutions. The developers have put a lot of work into their game and skillfully adjusted it to fit with PCs and big consoles (although there are some issues). Is the "small" Assassin's Creed worth your time? Yes - for this price it's a really decent game, even though the story and music are really weak.

    LEGO The Hobbit is a well-made game that doesn't break any new ground. Interesting story, atmosphere of the movie and a large world coexist with old gameplay solutions and well known issues. Middle-earth made of bricks has great potential, but the developers apparently don't want to take advantage of it all (yet). Fans of the series and Tolkien worshipers will definitely have fun for many hours, but they won't be amazed.

    Fans of previous Sherlock Holmes games could feel a bit disappointed with some simplifications and dividing the new game info 6 separate cases. Fortunately it doesn't affect the gameplay that much, although it seems as if the developers tried to do too many things at once. All in all the most important conclusion is this: Sherlock Holmes: Crimes and Punishments has a lot to offer to wannabe detectives and they definitely should give it a chance.

    If you're a veteran of the HoMM series and want more, you should consider buying Heroes VII (but remember about many issues plaguing this game at the moment). In case you haven't played the fifth or sixth installment, forget about the new game and pursue the older ones - they're cheaper and offer a very similar experience.

    I have a love-hate relationship with Rainbow Six: Siege. The game has some policemen shooting at each other and the famous Rainbow team is nowhere to be seen. There's no storyline (except one short but great mission) and the terrorists appear only during training. It's weird but still every dynamic encounter with the enemy provides tons of fun and satisfaction.

    Alice: Madness Returns is a great example of an oldchool 3D platformer that most certainly won't appeal to most fans of fast action games. It's a game kind of from a different age. The only modern thing about it is having to look for hidden items.

    The Walking Dead: Season 2 - despite being not as brilliant as Season 1 - offers an equally good and moving story. Clementine is now the main character and the developer chose to show her maturing over the course of the game, which was a great decision. The news season is a perfect interactive movie - if a very limited gameplay has put you off before, it most certainly will do it again. Of course, fans of The Walking Dead should definitely play the sequel.

    GTA Online has great, but not fully realized, potential. The developers need to sort out problems with servers and some irritating gameplay issues, and after that we need to be given an expansion with bank robberies. Fortunately the entire online mode for GTA V is going to be updated on a regular basis (from new missions to new clothes and haircuts). And for now - get some friends together and go do lots of seemingly absurd things. The fun is tremendous.

    Resonance is an interesting story almost to the very end. A game that challenges fans of the genre by introducing some new things into the gameplay. It's a modest, pixelated clickfest that will take gamers on a long journey and give them lots of fun. Resonance reminds us that a game is first and foremost a story, a way to deliver something, a form of expression – much like a book, a comic or a movie.

    Quantum Conundrum offers fresh gameplay mechanics that are used to create interesting challenges. The game is constructed in such a way, that looking for solutions for problems is fun and solving them gives a lot of satisfaction. Moreover, the campaign lasts for 5-6 hours what is a rather good accomplishment for a reasonably priced, download only game. There is just one big flaw – lack of overall polish.

    The new, rebooted Need for Speed looks good on the PC. The game is well prepared on the technical side but I feel as if the super-smooth animation can exist only thanks to sacrificing some sharpness of the things that you see on your screen (and the image quality isn't much better than the one on consoles). If you do not own PS4 or Xbox One, take an interest in this new NFS but switching platforms just for 60 fps isn't worth it.

    Risen 2: Dark Waters is a really well made game regardless of platform. Comfortable controls and a variety of improvements are great advantages of the console version, that unfortunately still suffers from some flaws. The biggest ones are: poor optimalization and some minor setbacks considering picture quality and saving games. But if you try to let them slide and perhaps drown your sorrows in rum, you will recieve a really good game.

    You should take a look at The Witcher Battle Arena not only because it's a free game. The Witcher MOBA has this illusive "something" that pulls you in and generates lots of fun. The heroes have a rich back-story and the combat system is as simple, as it is satisfying. Many hours have passed with me looking at a tablet screen in excitement, and many more will pass in the future.

    Primordia is a nice little s-f game. It's ugly, classic and short, but at the same time intriguing, well thought-out and quite literary. A game that tries to tell something about important things, but does so without being pompous. It's a modest game that has a huge spirit. An adventure game without impressive graphics has to rely on content, smart script, atmosphere and style. Primordia does well in almost all of these things, but definitely is not a breakthrough game.

    After a flawed first incarnation of Final Fantasy XIV, Square Enix has rethought everything and now offers a much more polished and user-friendly game. A Realm Reborn isn't a breakthrough, but generates lots of fun. The game has a rich world, unique atmosphere, well thought-out gameplay systems and lots of things to do - Final Fantasy fans should be more than satisfied. It really is "a realm reborn".

    Earthcore is a really well-made free card game. The rules are simple but you need to keep in mind that the game relies heavily on randomness and chaos (and that won't sit well with some of you). Still, the game is really fun and sooner or later you'll probably forget about these minor issues.

    Game of Thrones: A Telltale Games Series is a game build according to rules existing ever since The Walking Dead became a huge success. This six episode story is engrossing, offers lots of emotions and forces the player to make difficult choices but the illusion of non-linearity disappears during replays. And, of course, there is very little interactivity in this "interactive series" but fans of the genre, HBO's TV show and of George R.R. Martin's books should be happy.

    An interactive book with lots of pretty pictures, a virtual movie with a great atmosphere. Kholat is somewhere between keeping the player engaged and making him/her bored. The game's strongest assets are: grim atmosphere and a very interesting place the action is set in. It's worth taking a shot.

    Splitting White March, the Pillars of Eternity expansion, into two parts was a mistake. The game still shines on the story side but diversity of maps and gameplay balance (experienced characters are too strong) suffers a bit. Still, this expansion quenched my thirst for an adventure but as a big fan of Obsidian's game I'd like to hear about the development of Pillars of Eternity II.

    Magicka 2 is a love-hate kind of game. Whether you'll like or dislike it after the first hour depends largely on the knowledge of the previous game. On one hand it's still the same Magicka: pretty, funny, great in co-op and with an excellent spell system. On the other, it's not much of a sequel and looks more like a set of different DLCs.

    The Sims 4 is a game taking a big step forward and then two steps back. A new emotions system is a breath of fresh air, creating your sim and your home have been improved, and it's all good. Unfortunately: frequent loading screens, a not-so-open city, a dull neighborhood, few careers and lack of many things known from previous games create an overall muddy image of the game. It's good, but not that good - fans could be disappointed.

    The way you look at Injustice: Gods Among Us depends on the way you felt about the last Mortal Kombat. If you had fun, you'll like the new game. If you wanted something more serious and demanding, you'll be disappointed. But all in all NetherRealm is in shape and still is a worthy competitor in the beat'em up genre. Injustice delivers spectacular moments that should attract a new audience, and this type of games will definitely benefit from that.

    In terms of gameplay mechanic, Dying Light is great - we have excellent parkour and a very good day-night cycle. Unfortunately 99% of quests (and there are lots of them) are cut from the same cloth. The game looks fantastic, but on some PCs you won't be able to play comfortably (due to technical issues). But despite all that (and a lack of interesting story), Dying Light is a very decent game for the fans of the zombie apocalypse.

    Playing Unmechanical is a very pleasant experience. You get from one puzzle to another and try very hard to come up with a solution – what needs to be moved, pressed, stacked or opened to progress. Unfortunately, the end comes too quickly. The whole game will take up to 4 hours for a skilled player. There are a few ways to get to the finale, but still Unmechanical leaves you wanting more. Perhaps it is so, because a longer gameplay would become frustrating? It's hard to say.

    The final DLC for Borderlands 2 has two faces. One is that of many new things: interesting maps, different from everything we got to know and a variety of completely new, well designed opponents. That's the "good face". The "bad face" is presented by the means of the shortest and most dull single player campaign yet. When compared to other two add-ons, Sir Hammerlock's Big Game Hunt is the weakest one. But this doesn't change the fact, that fans should consider buying it, because it's most definitely worth the price.

    Hard Reset is a very decent debut - a game that reminds (in a very nice way) all PC gamers of the somewhat forgotten times of simple but exciting shooters. It's very pretty, very explosive and very short. But still it's worth the money the developers want for it and, perhaps, with sufficient sales they will be able do create a true bestseller in the future?

    The newest expansion to Men of War demands tons of patience and some knowledge about military equipment. It's one of the biggest strengths of this product, but at the same time its biggest flaw (nobody likes a boring game, no matter the theme). The developers put lots of work into a strictly military aspect (weapons, ammo, multitasking, various difficulties) and it paid off - it is the essence of Assault Squad 2, you just have to like it very much.

    The PC version of Pro Evolution Soccer 2014 is a letdown. PCs are being treated unfairly this year and gets only some of the new stuff (and not everything works the way it should!). The game will run smoothly even on older laptops but I don't think this was the goal - besides the game itself is clearly worse than its competitors and the next-gen version. Of course, you can see the changes and have fun, but that's not enough.

    Retribution is worth your time under one condition –you like online shooters, you don't get carried away with emotions and will treat this game as entertainment and not a fierce match to the death. Game mechanics is perfect, you can easily feel differences between weapons, even after a slight modification. The game uses Unreal Engine 3, is well optimized and looks nice, although the industrial style and sterile locations prevent you from being astonished. I'm not a hardcore shooter fan, so after a while – even with all the weapons and customization – I became bored. Retribution offers nothing new.
