    BattleBlock Theater is not original and it’s not ashamed of that. It’s everyone else that should be ashamed and green with envy that they couldn’t make such a fun game.

    If you've never played "metroidvania" type of games, Ghost 1.0 is an excellent entry point.

    Weak storytelling and some technical issues are the only problems detracting from a great experience. This is one of the best games about zombie apocalypse.

    Age of Wonders 3 combined with this expansion is definitely worth buying now.

    Owners of the PC version are faced with a difficult choice — either wait for the promised online multiplayer and enjoy the fact that it is a decent port of an excellent fighting game, or berate Team Ninja that Last Round lacks some odd features.

    PES 2017 is an invitation to the best virtual soccer you've seen in years, if you're willing to overlook the lack of official licenses and some annoying technical glitches.

    If you’re willing to put up with its cartoony characters, Super Mega Baseball is the best baseball game for PC in a long while.

    The Sealed Play mode is quite cynical in its attempt to squeeze more money from players, but then again, the entire Magic: The Gathering franchise is built on that concept. Plus, Magic 2014 will consume you even if you choose not to pay for additional slots – it is still a brilliant game, after all.

    It is nice that 2x2 Games managed to offer a fresh take on the original game’s formula without resorting to radical changes.

    There are two almost independent episodes living under one name. The first one is a beautiful, smart, exciting adventure game that is pure happiness, though it is short and without an ending. The second part is… Well, simply ignore it. Repeat after me: you do not need to play Part Two.

    Beholder lacks the elegance and atmosphere of Papers, Please, and you won't be replaying its short campaign too often, but these almost real characters and gut-wrenching decisions you'll make to turn their world into a living hell, are absolutely worth your time.

    Despite the weak diplomacy layer and clumsy UI, Civilization 6 as a whole outshines its shortcomings.

    Only when your team arrives in Los Angeles which was unavailable in the Steam Early Access version, Wasteland 2 gets a second wind and becomes *that* classic RPG.

    No Time Left is Telltale's best effort to date. It has the longest heart-to-heart talk in the entire game, the most exciting action sequence featuring Lee, a hatchet and a horde of zombies, and a quiet, emotional climax.

    Modest visuals, weird camera behaviour (it follows all four characters at once, so you can’t get very far from other players) and connectivity troubles are pretty much the only shortcomings of this otherwise fantastic game. If BetaDwarf quickly fixes the bugs and starts churning out new challenges, this will be a must for all fans of cooperative games.

    Graphical flaws and overly linear gameplay aside, DmC is a solid first installment in the relaunched franchise.

    Just like any other decent 4X game, Age of Wonders 3 truly shines when you play on random maps, rather than scenarios. They are much more fun to explore, and the whole diplomacy mechanic suddenly makes sense.

    The amazing art direction and style are on double duty in The Last of Us, because the game’s designers did not think its universe through. Yes, monsters are not the focal point of this story, but only three types is too few for a campaign spanning 12 to 15 hours. There are also human bandits, but a few encounters – and you’ve seen them all.

    There are way too many small annoyances that should have been polished before the release, but fans of hardcore multiplayer shooters will definitely enjoy Rising Storm as it is.

    A bold, fun incarnation of a very unusual concept.

    Don't Starve Together does little to fix the original's glaring problems, but still, conquering the wilderness together with friends is a lot of fun.

    With this expansion and major updates, Blizzard finally did what it should have done two years ago – make Diablo 3 a fun game to play.

    Even though Ultimate General: Gettysburg offers just one historical event, there is enough variety to make your next play-through different than the previous one.

    The best way to enjoy Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs is to treat it like an interactive movie. Just don’t expect any scares in this otherwise impressive drama.

    Metal Gear Solid V is amazing at times, and I enjoyed playing it, but there are so many embarrassing blunders and contradictions. Rich tactical gameplay vs an almost dead world. Fun HQ management and interesting characters vs an unfinished narrative and boring side quests. In some regards, this is a huge step back from previous Metal Gear games.

    Masters of the World is a must for anyone who likes fantasy turn-based strategy games. Get it, but don’t play it just yet – wait a few weeks before the developers iron out the kinks. Judging by the speed at which they churn out new patches, you won’t have to wait too long.

    A fun, addictive TD strategy game. The story campaign could have been a tad more challenging, but, thankfully, there is a plethora of additional gameplay modes.

    A nice short fairytale. There is nothing particularly clever or inventive about it, but you can’t help but enjoy playing it.

    Zombie Vikings is the first beat-‘em-up game where the story and jokes are so good that they make you slog through its tedious combat.

    It’s a genuine handheld blockbuster, complete with cool scripted sequences, loud explosions, and surprisingly nice graphics for Vita’s not-so-top-notch hardware.
