Children of Morta Review - A Gem Among Roguelike Dungeon Crawlers

Children of Morta Review - A Gem Among Roguelike Dungeon Crawlers

game review13 September 2019

When you beat the Children of Morta you will have the feeling that you are not only abandoning the great, dynamic hack'n'slash, but also that you are leaving the family home where you simply felt good and safe.

Gears 5 Review – All Cogs in Right Places

Gears 5 Review – All Cogs in Right Places

game review09 September 2019

We like it when creators are able to recognize their mistakes. Gears 5 lets go of the expedition company of rookie boy scouts, and serves a hard-boiled action shooter instead. Just like the old days.

Blair Witch Review – the Scariest Forest

Blair Witch Review – the Scariest Forest

game review03 September 2019

Bloober Team is a company that has become a synonym of horror for many people. Blair Witch is their first game developed under a license, but the devs were able to turn that into their favor, offering another successful title. Is it their best game yet?

If You Think Control is not Worth it – Think Again

If You Think Control is not Worth it – Think Again

game review27 August 2019

The latest game by the creators of Max Payne and Alan Wake hasn't been hugely exciting before the release, which is a pity – because it's definitely more than just a solid shooter.

Age of Wonders: Planetfall Review – Bartender! Civilization with XCOM please!

Age of Wonders: Planetfall Review – Bartender! Civilization with XCOM please!

game review14 August 2019

The creators of the cult series have moved into the distant future, used their best practices and created a game that we'll be playing for years to come. Age of Wonders: Planetfall is a successful strategy that more than makes up for its shortcomings.

Wolfenstein: Youngblood Review – Not the Wolf We've Been Waiting For

Wolfenstein: Youngblood Review – Not the Wolf We've Been Waiting For

game review29 July 2019

I hear every generation wants to change the world. The daughters B.J. Blazkowicz turned Wolfenstein into an RPG looter-shooter without loot. What came out of it? Let's just say that their father wouldn't be proud...

Fire Emblem: Three Houses Review – Decent Tactical Adventure

Fire Emblem: Three Houses Review – Decent Tactical Adventure

game review25 July 2019

The Fire Emblem series has been well-known to fans of excellent tactical games for years. With Nintendo Switch's hybrid consoles, the taste of well-designed tactical has a chance to appeal wider group of players.

Warhammer: Chaosbane Review – A Casual Diablo 3

Warhammer: Chaosbane Review – A Casual Diablo 3

game review08 July 2019

Warhammer: Chaosbane, which was to enrich the hack'n'slash universe with creatures of the Old World, was an exciting idea. But bearing in mind the recent disappointment with the glitchy Warhammer: Vermintide 2, I had some reservations...

Sinking City Review – Sherlock Holmes vs. Cthulhu

Sinking City Review – Sherlock Holmes vs. Cthulhu

game review05 July 2019

The authors of the series of games about Sherlock Holmes opted for the prose of H. P. Lovecraft and seem to have knuckled under to the power of the Great Old Ones. The Sinking City turned out a decent detective adventure, but not much more.

Layers of Fear 2 Review – More Ambitious, but is that Good?

Layers of Fear 2 Review – More Ambitious, but is that Good?

game review05 July 2019

An atmosphere which is not that spooky or terrifying but... quite strange, disturbing, literally "creepy." Layers of Fear 2 is not the Polish P. T., but a Polish TP. “T” for Twin, and “P” for Peaks.

Crash Bandicoot N.Sane Trilogy Review – The Bandicoot is Back in Town

Crash Bandicoot N.Sane Trilogy Review – The Bandicoot is Back in Town

game review10 July 2017

More than 20 years after the release of its first installment, Crash Bandicoot returns in a remastered trilogy prepared by the team at Vicarious Visions. Can this once-progressive title still hold its ground against modern titles?

The Long Journey Home review – space-sim for the patient ones

The Long Journey Home review – space-sim for the patient ones

game review01 June 2017

Deep space exploration has recently become wildly popular in video games. How did Daedalic approach this theme in their new game, The Long Journey Home? What distinguishes it are diversity, creativity… and the fact that it’s hardcore. It really is.

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.

Train Mechanic Simulator 2017 Review – I like trains

game review29 March 2017

There’s more to a virtual mechanic’s life than fixing cars or agricultural machines. The time has come to switch to the big stuff – let’s get to work on some railway engines!

Kona Review – spooky Canadian survival

Kona Review – spooky Canadian survival

game review27 March 2017

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

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

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?

Warhammer 40,000: Sanctus Reach Review – New Final Liberation?

game review25 January 2017

Remember the human chess game from Harry Potter? If you've always wanted to play its Warhammer 40,000 equivalent, now is your chance, coming in the form of Sanctus Reach published by Slitherine.

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

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

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.
