Virginia review – Twin Peaks meets The X-Files

Virginia review – Twin Peaks meets The X-Files

game review29 September 2016

Made with a cinematic flair, Virginia tells a subtly emotional story with image alone. This game is trying to push the envelope when it comes to the limits of walking simulators while creating an eerie atmosphere reminiscent of Twin Peaks or The X-Files.

Cossacks 3 review – a sad return to the past

game review21 September 2016

The Cossacks are back, marking their return with the sound of pipes and the roar of cannons. Unfortunately, the third game in the series that is especially popular in Europe comes with the same advantages and disadvantages as it did 16 years ago.

The Final Station review – next stop: post-apocalypse

game review02 September 2016

From the very first trailer The Final Station looked like a lovechild of This War of Mine and the “old but gold” Transarctica. Sounds wonderful, but is it really?

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided Review – lesser sibling of Human Revolution

game review23 August 2016

Developing a sequel that surpasses the original is always a challenge. In case of Mankind Divided, the goal was partly achieved. While the gameplay hits all the right notes, the plot leaves something to be desired.

No Man's Sky Review – in space no one can hear you yawn

game review19 August 2016

Despite the community’s great expectations, or perhaps exactly because of them, No Man’s Sky painfully disappoints – vast but random, seeking diversity yet repetitive, and sometimes glaringly different from what the trailers promised.

The Technomancer Review – Spiders studio gather momentum

game review28 June 2016

Spiders studio are pretty experienced with RPGs, but they aren’t really adept at them... Or at least that was the case until now – The Technomancer seems to indicate that soon, practice will make the creators of Mars: War Logs and Bound by Flame perfect.

The Way Review – revive your love in pixel art

game review03 June 2016

Drawing inspiration from cult classics such as Another World or Flashback is a commendable thing to do. Still, is this simply a marketing ploy or did the creators actually succeed at bringing back the spirit of these great ‘90s games?

Total War: Warhammer review – Old World in new garments

game review31 May 2016

Warhammer + Total War is among the most basic mathematical equations – come to think about it, it’s actually surprising that it took that long for Creative Assembly to finally make this game. Today we know that it was totally worth the wait.

The Witcher 3: Blood and Wine Review – A fairy-tale duchy tinged with blood

game review25 May 2016

With its second expansion the Witcher 3 franchise bids us farewell – at least for a while. The idea to send the witcher on a trip to Toussaint proves to be a great call and an amazing idea for a closure of sorts.
