    A really good game and it would get the highest grade in its category, if it wasn't for some technical issues. What is more, this game isn't for everybody. It's difficult to begin, soon gets even more complicated and overwhelms with the amount of things to take care of. But all of this seemed great for me - I want a sequel that has a much bigger budget!

    Pro Evolution Soccer 2014 is a little disappointing - we were expecting a huge revolution, and what we got is just a beginning of a revolution (and not that perfect, to be honest). The game offers lots of fun, is difficult enough and stays on the simulation side, but lots of technical issues truly test the player's patience. There are many steps in the right direction, but at the same time there are lots of steps back.

    ArmA III has kept me busy for months, and its final version made me feel ambivalent. On one hand we have a great technological leap, on the other - poor content. Sure, ArmA III isn't your regular shooter that needs to have an interesting, long campaign - it's a game that lives through the community - but it's a pity, that the gamers were given so little to work on. Arma III was supposed to be great, and right now is only promising.

    Online incarnation of Neverwinter is an interesting proposal for fans of MMO and action RPG, that enjoy a fantasy setting. The game is pretty and playable, but I'm not sure if the Foundry is enough to keep players for a long time. Creating your own quests is really cool, but it does not make up for an unbalanced PvP. Let's hope Cryptic Studios considers all of the opinions and solves the problem of expensive micro-transactions, as well as gives max-level players something interesting to do.

    The Testament of Sherlock Holmes is a really atmospheric addition to the series. The story is original and very interesting, puzzles are top-notch and demand lots of thinking and the gameplay is satisfyingly long. What is more - there are some really pleasant surprises along the way. I think it's the best installment in the series and it will be hard to top this one, but I have hope. That's the way to go.

    Shadow Warrior is a surprisingly good game, proving that classic shooters are still needed. I haven't had so much fan while playing an FPS in a very long time. And speaking of long time - it's a really lengthy game (15-17 hours is a lot by today's standards). If you're a fan of this kind of games and you like gore and crude humor, you simply need to buy and play the new Shadow Warrior.

    If you don't like playing online, don't buy Shadow Fall just yet - either wait for a serious discount or forget about it entirely. The game isn't worth buying just for the campaign, which turns out to be poorly designed, kind of boring, uneven and unoriginal. New Killzone is really pretty, but its biggest asset is a well designed, engrossing multiplayer mode.

    Dawnguard is a well made, quite long expansion that doesn't live up to all our expectations. It's import ant, because this DLC costs 1600 MSP, which converts to a fairly big amount of money. But if you're a fan of Skyrim and can't wait to become a powerful vampire lord, you should give it a chance.

    The Infamy is just a short introduction to The Tyranny of King Washington and as such isn't of much value. The story seems intriguing, but it's much too short. Same thing with the gameplay - new skills are interesting, but there's not enough time to use them. The Tyranny of King Washington has the potential to be a great expansion, but if you're not a fan, don't buy this first episode and wait at least for one more.

    New Traveller's Tales' game is a job well done that provides an absorbing entertainment for many hours. But that doesn't mean we have the best installment of the series in our hands - only a Pirates of the Caribbean maniac will think so. The developers have given us a simple, next-in-line game without any spectacular surprises. Does it mean sad routine and no heart? Fortunatelly no - belt-system production never provides stunning results but the LEGO series is still defending itself from losing its identity.

    Whistleblower is a great addition to a very good original Outlast. The fear factor is a bit weaker, than in the basic game, but there are plenty of strong emotions. The gameplay mechanics are recycled, but the game adds great story and a much heavier atmosphere. And you have to be satisfied with a worthy finale to really a dark story. All in all - great DLC.

    The Missing Link is one of those add-ons, that shine a brighter light on all that DLC business. Although the amount of money that Square Enix wants for it seems big, the price-quality ratio is very good - DLCs with that much content are a rarity. The Missing Link is also a great opportunity to see how great the new Deus Ex still is. I became Adam Jensen again after a few weeks and it was such a pleasant experience, that I had to stick around till the end credits. Deus Ex is fantastic and this DLC is great.

    Critter Chronicles is definitely one of the best adventure games in the entire world. It has a nice, simple story, fantastic dialogue, great sense of humor, exceptionally likable characters, excellent English dubbing and really pretty graphics. Hardcore gamers can think it's too easy, but I think a higher difficulty level would cripple the game's fluid gameplay and an irritated gamer wouldn't appreciate many funny moments. Besides - the game has a hard mode. If you like adventure games, you simply can't not play Critter Chronicles.

    Close Quarters isn't able to stir up the same emotions as BF3 did, and turns it into a simple arcade shooter, similar to many other first person shooters out there. I won't deny, that an occasional match on Ziba Tower will happen for me, but my thoughts will stay with the original Battlefield 3.

    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?

    Worms Clan Wars is to Worms Revolution, what Worms World Party was to Worms Armageddon - a bigger, better version of the game. The new Worms is a game focused on online gameplay, but it can easily provide lots of fun for the lovers of classic hot seat gaming (and single player mode fans will find lots to do as well). Clan Wars isn't as great as the best installments in the series, but undoubtedly is a really cool little game.

    The new version of famous Worms isn't as original as it's great predecessors from more than a decade ago. Fortunately it's still a good game that shows its full potential during multiplayer matches. Single player isn't as exciting, but neither this, nor mediocre graphics change the fact, that playing Worms is fun. Revolution introduces some well thought out innovations, but that's no true revolution.

    Banished is a great example of an excellent game created without massive resources. Shining Rock Studios combined well-known solutions with new ideas that generate hours of interesting and very demanding gameplay set in a likeable world. Creating and expanding your own settlement provide tons of fun, and giving food and shelter to your subjects is extremely satisfying. Banished is one of the nicest surprises of the year so far.

    While exploring Freedom Cry I felt that the money was well spent - it's without a doubt the best and the biggest DLC in the history of Assassin's Creed series. You need to approach Adewale's adventures without too much seriousness, and Freedom Cry will surely meet your expectations. The end result is this - if you really liked Black Flag, you simply have to buy this expansion.

    Some will like this game, some won't. Fans of Warband will be excited by the multiplayer, but sandbox lovers won't find anything here. Mount & Blade players will appreciate much better graphics, but others won't be impressed. Ethusiasts of intuitive swordfights will welcome the simple fighting system, but slasher veterans will most likely be bored. The key thing is the future - the amount of active players will decide about the game's success or failure. The biggest problem is lack of free-to-play gaming model, but still there's some potential and I quite like it.

    Anarchy Reigns is a dream come true for some, and a mediocre game for others. At first glance, the game hides its potential well - the single player campaign is short and simple, and multiplayer is complex, demanding and hard to master. The game is uneven in the graphical department as well - maps are impressively big, there are some great monster and character designs, but terrible textures and a faulty physics and destruction system can put you off. But Anarchy Reigns is good at what it needs to be good at - being a great multiplayer beat'em up. Underneath some sloppiness there's a well designed game that is worth buying now, when people are playing it.

    Crimson Alliance, even though it's a well produced game, doesn't meet all the expectations. A lot of simplified elements stare in your face making Crimson Allianc more of a Gauntlet-styled arcade than a real hack'n'slash. And even when looking at it this way, the gameplay is too monotonous (a flawed co-op mode saves it a bit). The game looked good but turned out only pretty well.

    An interesting game, especially for fans of tower defense genre. It's a peculiar game in its category but its advantages come mainly from the visual side (design, animations) and not gameplay. Rock of Ages isn't a complicated game and success during playing depends mostly on luck. It's an arcade title and planning, though important, stays in the background.

    The Incredible Adventures of van Helsing is a really nice surprise. The game has a unique gothic atmosphere, a well designed character development system, dynamic combat, storyline with decisions to make and some tower defense elements. Unfortunately there are some errors and issues - a silly economy model and weak epic items, for instance. Still - Van Helsing isn't a game visibly worse, than other hack'n'slashes out there. If you like gothic mixed with strange machines, it's worth checking out.

    For those players that have mastered the Colin McRae series and previous DiRTs, the new game is a waste of time. You can try playing and be sure that you won't die of boredom, but you have to remember that there are almost no innovations and the driving mechanic is simpler than ever.

    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.

    Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs is a step back from The Dark Descent. The gameplay consists of walking from one piece of the story to the next and sometimes it becomes boring. The developers wanted to create a virtual novella, and the result lasts for 4 hours. It's a pity, that a very interesting story isn't matched by an interesting gameplay. But don't get me wrong - The Chinese Room did good and created a unique world that mirrors the mind of the protagonist. The game gets you thinking, believe me.

    Dungeon Siege III is a game that can't be graded without upsetting some gamers. They have been divided into two camps: the game's followers and opponents, and some examples of really fanatical behavior are peculiar indeed. But when I try to describe Obsidian Entertainment's new game in a calm and cool way, I have to say "at least satisfactory". A very gripping gameplay, arcade style combat, lots of RPG elements and interesting story and characters – these are the things that convinced me.

    Cities in Motion 2 is a step forward. We have bigger, more complex cities, there are great new timetable and ticket selling systems, and we get an opportunity to build roads and modify the city's infrastructure. Sequel is better in terms of running a public transport company and even though there are some things that didn't work out and you encounter some technical issues, you can clearly see that the developers have done their best. Good job.

    Sniper Elite III has some flaws - the AI works in mysterious ways and the storyline is silly. These minor issues don't cloud the complete image - the game is a well thought-out package with a good single-player campaign (full of semi-open missions), satisfying co-op and a solid, original multiplayer mode. You should definitely give Sniper Elite III a Chance.
