    All in all, the combat and gameplay is unchanged, and I’m OK with that. Even in a world of beautiful advanced RTS titles like Starcraft II the game holds up remarkably well.

    The Showdown Effect is a good game, and if you're a fan of platform-based competitive online, it's one of the best offerings available today.

    All in all, King’s Bounty is starting to feel a little old. You explore the campaign map’s islands, fight chess-like battles with stacks of fantastical armies, cast spells to buff your units or hurl pain at those of the enemies and that’s pretty much it.

    Guild of Dungeoneering is easy to get into and understand thanks to its simplicity, but it is that simplicity which ultimately prevents it from being something great.

    It’s fun to write stories, and this game is a must for those who feel the desire to tell tales, in whatever forms they may be.

    All in all, The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing III is a little too complex for its own good. It’s always nice to have variety, but when you have to trawl through everything and the kitchen sink to find your ideal build, it takes some of the fun out of it.

    It doesn’t have much of a story or a big sprawling singleplayer campaign with characters, but then neither does Chess or Draughts, and they’re still fairly solid strategy games!

    You get more than a simple head-basher. Instead, you have action, stealth, roleplaying, and even some light strategy that brings out the simulation in survival-sim. Your choices have weight. Zombies are deadly. The good guys don’t always win.

    In an industry with dozens of titles vying for the top spot in their genre, stagnation is a death sentence, and I fear that without a change on par with the Modern Warfare revolution that rose the series to where it is, the spirit of Call of Duty is destined to soon become no more than a ghost.

    For all the moments of greatness that Brutal Legend has, it is brought down by a lack of unified gameplay structure.

    Sunset isn’t like many games you have played before. While it has some pacing issues at times, the game’s portrayal of its themes and narrative are intimately personal and, wholistically, deeply effective.

    The addon would be good value for money and get a heartily made recommendation at half the price and a nod of approval at $15.

    Sir, You Are Being Hunted is stock-full of superb dark humour that ties the game firmly to the country of its origin.

    However, I still wholeheartedly believe that Teslagrad is worth playing: Rain Games has made a fun twitch-puzzle platformer that both hits the right nostalgic notes while also carving out its own unique identity. There aren't enough games like this these days and despite its moments of extreme frustration, the game's beauty and charm were always enough to keep me playing.

    The Dream experience is certainly a positive one, and definitely succeeds in recreating the surreal and intriguing nature of actual dreams.

    The game is a very enjoyable experience and KING Art is to be commended for making some of the most polished games in the genre these days.

    Papo & Yo is a unique game. It handles its themes extremely well, and the world is simply amazing to behold. Though the game is not without its faults, chief among them a lack of difficulty and challenge, Papo & Yo should be played at least once. Trust me, the journey will be quite worth it.

    That said, it’s still Saints Row, and there’s still a ton of fun to be had up front before the activities start repeating themselves.

    I don’t think Valley is the strongest of the three games which make up Trackmania 2 but you will still have fun if you play it. I certainly did, and will continue to do so. Now, if you’ll let me, I’m going to go and conquer that wall ride that’s been bugging me.

    Cook, Serve, Delicious! isn’t trying to impress you that much, it is just all serving up a healthy dose of fun with a side helping of frenzied action.

    All in all, Nihilumbra is a short, but fun, puzzle platformer.

    Although Assassin's Creed Rogue has many similarities to both Assassin's Creed III and Blag Flag, it does combine the main gameplay features of sailing, exploration and combat rather well.

    Overall, Thief is a quality game, particularly if you take the time to explore the side missions. If you go in expecting the game to be a solely stealth game or a remake of the original, you will probably be disappointed.

    It has some faults, but for the most part you’ll have a good time fighting and thinking your way through this game’s many levels.

    March of the Eagles is a great game, but it’s the same game you have played before.

    You can play Marvel Heroes through without spending any money on it, and it will be a decent experience for you. However, the inelegant handling of multiple characters, along with the lack of any real difficulty means that it doesn’t quite reach the heights of other games in the genre. But it is the only game of its type where you can play as your favourite Marvel characters and that is certainly something that will draw many people in.

    Let’s be clear here: Ancient Space is definitely not a new Homeworld, nor should it have to be. It has found its own niche, applying the excellent balance and approachable tactics of the traditional RTS, and taking it into space with panache.

    Despite its issues, The Dark Eye: Demonicon remains a fun adventure that, while lacking polish, is an enjoyable journey through The Dark Eye setting.

    Anyone who plays adventure games for deep stories and complex characters should definitely avoid this one, but players looking for a short, surreal point & click will undoubtedly enjoy their time in the Bunker if they can look past the flawed gameplay experience.

    Overall, the story was interesting, the puzzles had just the right mix of challenge and logic, and I enjoyed almost every minute of playing. Nancy Drew: Ghost of Thornton Hall didn't disappoint and kept me riveted until it was over, too soon. I'll be looking forward to the next instalment in the Nancy Drew series – though I might wait until I have some real free time before I buy it!
