Beat Cop review – everyday fun on the force

Beat Cop review – everyday fun on the force

game review04 April 2017

Rather quietly, overshadowed by triple-A releases, comes a game worth noticing. Beat Cop is, in some respects, quite similar to Papers, Please, but in this case, we can choose between good and bad cop.

A snowy, Canadian wilderness is the perfect location to hide some bodies in the closet. If you don’t believe me, Kona – a survival adventure game by Parabole – will certainly convince you.

911 Operator Review – Emergency Dispatch Center Simulator

game review04 March 2017

Being an emergency dispatcher is a highly responsible post, as proven by the game from a small Polish dev team. While it may be hard to remain focused during longer sessions, 911 Operator is definitely worth your time.

Disgaea 2 review – tactical RPG with a touch of craziness

game review01 February 2017

Demons are like politicians – easy to bribe and prone to fighting. What other lessons can we learn from the PC port of an immersive and funny tactical game, Disgaea 2?

The Dwarves Review – shoddy dwarven craftsmanship

The Dwarves Review – shoddy dwarven craftsmanship

game review09 December 2016

We’ve been keeping a close eye on King Art Games ever since Jakub Rozalski decided to entrust them with the development of Iron Harvest. The Dwarves can be seen as an exam of the studio’s capabilities. The results, however, are less than promising...

Shadow Tactics: Blades of the Shogun review – commandos gone samurai

Shadow Tactics: Blades of the Shogun review – commandos gone samurai

game review06 December 2016

18 years – this much time has passed since the release of the first Commandos. Today, in Shadow Tactics, its spirit returns along with the magic of isometric tactical stealth games – they were difficult, a bit rough around the edges, but also fun to play.

Planet Coaster review – perfect sandbox, imperfect strategy

Planet Coaster review – perfect sandbox, imperfect strategy

game review30 November 2016

Planet Coaster is a great come-back of roller coaster tycoons. The game gives the fans everything they expected, and though the economy system could be more demanding, the production as a whole is an outstanding sandbox.

Tyranny Review – an RPG full of contrasts

game review18 November 2016

As we wait for the sequel to Pillars of Eternity, Obsidian Entertainment gives us Tyranny – a game where we play as the Big Bad’s loyal agent. This short-term project features numerous ideas and mechanics, but only some of them pay off.

Sid Meier’s Civilization VI review – one turn short of perfection

Sid Meier’s Civilization VI review – one turn short of perfection

game review02 November 2016

Does Civilization VI offer more at launch than Civ V did? Definitely. This doesn’t mean, though, that the developers managed to top Civilization V with all of its expansions – they almost did; except “almost” makes all the difference in this case.

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

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

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?

Obduction review – beautiful, difficult, captivating

Obduction review – beautiful, difficult, captivating

game review02 September 2016

A first-person adventure game that’s neither survival nor horror? Obduction draws from the classics of the genre as a spiritual successor to the Myst series.

Worms WMD review – Going back to Armageddon

game review24 August 2016

Worms WMD is a perfect mix of the old and the new, especially since this game is closest to bringing back the experience of the best installments in the series while introducing some new stuff at the same time.

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

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

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.
