    The developers of Lost Chronicles of Zerzura have Mata Hari and two Black Mirror sequels under their belt already, but this game is an adventure in the same way as a blueprint is an airplane.

    Jazzpunk is an equivalent of an avant-garde show – it doesn’t have a story or even a point to it. It’s nothing more than a collection of rejected ideas.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 35 Critic Score
    Cold, formulaic gameplay sucks all the enjoyment from this game’s amazing, incredibly moving story.

    Beyond: Two Souls is nothing more than a movie where they occasionally allow you to press some buttons and advance the story. The shallow, banal, cliche-ridden story drags on, and on, and on...

    The soundtrack is the only good thing in the new Rise of the Triad.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 35 Critic Score
    An overly ambitious, tedious, shockingly short game.
    • 65 Metascore

    Forge is an orphan of a game, with lonely players stalking its empty servers. It is, in fact, not even a game, but just a prototype of one.

    Bladeslinger looks stunning, but the gameplay is just as rotten as the monsters you have to kill.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 25 Critic Score
    Even though the game’s weak attempts at humor work better when you play it with friends, compared to Magicka, Legend of Dungeon is still a snoozefest.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 48 Critic Score
    Yet again, Rebellion surprised me. I mean, you have to have a very special talent to turn team-based zombie killing into a chore.

    As an introduction to old-school classics, Evoland is just too boring, and most veterans are not that nostalgic to blindly forgive its shoddy attempts at game design.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 44 Critic Score
    Amongst the many sins of Mars: War Logs, the total lack of originality is the worst one.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 46 Critic Score
    God Mode feels like a free-to-play game that somehow got released without a trace of microtransactions. If you want to kill tons of monsters in co-op, better get Serious Sam 3: BFE.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    The moment when Space Hulk loses its charm, is two to three missions in, when you suddenly realize that you’ve already seen everything this game has to offer.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 45 Critic Score
    Boredom, not ghosts, is your worst enemy in Knock-knock.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 38 Critic Score
    It’s not a sequel – just 5 new maps for the original NZA.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 45 Critic Score
    Avoid Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2 at all costs – it will destroy your mental balance with a single shot.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    A tedious tomb raiding adventure starring an Indiana Jones parody.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    There is no way Miner Wars 2081 is a modern reincarnation of the Descent series. It is a flawed, incomplete product that somehow was approved in Steam Greenlight.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 49 Critic Score
    Jake Keane 2 is crude and clumsy, as if the developers did not want to make this game at all, but someone forced them to.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    Ace of Spades has all the components of a decent multiplayer shooter: stylish graphics, gameplay inspired by Team Fortress 2 and Call of Duty, destructible environments… But the sum of these parts feels like a bad parody of popular games.
    • 45 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Impire got old even before it came out, and its dated visuals are not the only problem. As someone who played Dwarf Fortress a lot, I can get used to poor quality graphics, but drab gameplay, forced jokes, buggy multiplayer and complete lack of fresh ideas will be the downfall of Impire.

    Sometimes a Hollywood studio tries to make a blockbuster, but the end result is so dumb and pathetic that you can’t stop chuckling while watching it. Aliens: Colonial Marines is a game equivalent of that kind of failure. So do yourself a favor – wait until it hits $4,99 on Steam (oh, it will!), buy it, gather your friends, and get ready to laugh for four hours straight.

    The best thing about DARK is that there are no hints at a sequel. At all.
    • 39 Metascore
    • 32 Critic Score
    Dead Horde, the previous offering from DnS Development, was abysmal. Primal Fears is just bad. Well, at least they're moving in the right direction.
    • 38 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    This game is like a zombie itself – from afar, it seems like a normal person who just limps along for some reason… But up close the stench of dead meat is unbearable.
    • 37 Metascore

    There is a clear advantage over the Nintendo DS version – it is much easier to shoot monsters using keyboard and mouse. But why on Earth would someone play this silly, buggy, boring parody of a horror game?

    If you burn $15 and scatter the ashes, you will have more fun than you would by playing this game.

    007 Legends greets you with a warning that Activision will not support the game's multiplayer servers if there is not enough interest. Was there any interest, really?
