The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt - Hearts of Stone Review – Almost perfect expansion

game review13 October 2015

The first expansion pack for the Witcher 3, titled Hearts of Stone, features a new adventure of Geralt of Rivia, but it also proves a certain point: a DLC doesn’t have to be sluggish and dull as the competition would have us believe.

Skyhill review – does another roguelike survival amuse or bore?

Skyhill review – does another roguelike survival amuse or bore?

game review09 October 2015

Skyhill’s biggest flaw is its lack of merits. It’s, technically speaking, a decently designed survival game, but neither its RPG elements nor the story nor the atmosphere are entertaining enough to keep the players engaged.

Review of Victor Vran – The Vampiric Clone of Diablo is Quite Enjoyable

game review24 July 2015

Victor Vran is your typical action-RPG inspired by Diablo. The game is heavy on action and not afraid of unconventional ideas but wrapped in a conservative plot.
