Transport Fever 2 Review - Good Sim; Poor Tycoon

game review11 December 2019

Three years seems about enough time to pin-point the shortcomings that stop a good game from being great. Have Urban Games managed to do just that, and is their new Transport Fever 2 a game to match the legendary Transport Tycoon?

Ghost Recon: Breakpoint Review – Even Anthem was More Compelling

Ghost Recon: Breakpoint Review – Even Anthem was More Compelling

game review07 October 2019

Breakpoint is an unsuccessful, shapeless blend of ideas from all Ubisoft games. In the endless flood of virtual garbage to collect and buy, there was not even a trace of the cult Ghost Recon series.

Wanderlust Travel Stories Review – A Must-Read Game

Wanderlust Travel Stories Review – A Must-Read Game

game review26 September 2019

Wanderlust is an unusual and bold concept of a game based on the literature of the road. The courage of the artists, who created a game consisting mostly of text, deserves admiration. And recognition, too, because Wanderlust is simply a really good game.

Terminator: Resistance Review – It's Not Perfect, but It's Definitely Not a Crap

Terminator: Resistance Review – It's Not Perfect, but It's Definitely Not a Crap

game review16 November 2019

The new Terminator is surprisingly satisfactory. And we're not talking about the average film by Tim Miller, but about a fresh game from Krakow's Teyon – a developer who became notorious in the gaming industry with the infamous Rambo: The Video Game.

The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening Review – Modern Oldschool Respecting the Original

The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening Review – Modern Oldschool Respecting the Original

game review27 September 2019

We never have enough of The Legend of Zelda. This time, Nintendo again revisits the past to brush off the one of the best hand-held adventures of Link – Link's Awakening, originally created in 1993 for the Game Boy.

Review of Borderlands 3 – Space Never Changes

Review of Borderlands 3 – Space Never Changes

game review02 October 2019

The cult series of looter shooters has returned to give us crazy firearms and tons of cannon fodder to kill once again. What's new in the world of armed Sirens and Space Vaults? Not much – and that's exactly what we wanted!

GreedFall Review - Budget Witcher 3 That Simply Works

GreedFall Review - Budget Witcher 3 That Simply Works

game review13 September 2019

GreedFall is not a stiff spiritual successor to Gothic series. It's a well-designed unique role playing game developed with a limited budget and some great ideas borrowed straight from the best titles of this genre.

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.

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.

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...

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...

Song of Horror Review – Often Scary, but in the Wrong Way

Song of Horror Review – Often Scary, but in the Wrong Way

game review29 October 2019

Song of Horror is a frightening game that focuses on classic presentation of action, sneaking, and solving puzzles. But was everything that frightens the player surely intended by the creators?

game review28 October 2019

Friends from the world of Mario and Luigi visited the haunted property three times and still haven't learned that it's not a good destination for holiday. Fortunately! Because Luigi's Mansion 3 is a good continuation on the Nintendo Switch platform.

FIFA 20 Review – the Return of the Party Football King (Final Score)

game review20 September 2019

FIFA 20 once again proves that when it comes to playing with friends, nobody's got anything on this series. Unfortunately, things aren't so great with everything the game offers.

Meet 2019's Most Amazing Game – Disco Elysium, a Quirky RPG from Estonia

game review21 November 2019

[Review updated] A depraved cop investigates a degenerate industrial world, where racism is ubiquitous, the specter of communism fuels class struggles, and the good and evil are meaningless constructs. Disco Elysium, this year's most ambitious RPG

Stygian : Reign of the Old Ones Review – Lovecraft Doesn't Die

Stygian : Reign of the Old Ones Review – Lovecraft Doesn't Die

game review07 November 2019

Stygian: Reign of the Old Ones is one of those games you will love and hate at the same time – you just have to like the dense climate of Lovecraft's mythology and, like me, bear all the glitches that make completing the game neigh impossible.

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.

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?

Darksiders Genesis Review – Looks like Diablo, but This Still is Darksiders

Darksiders Genesis Review – Looks like Diablo, but This Still is Darksiders

game review04 December 2019

Is there any point in releasing a spin-off prequel after three parts of the series – and switching to isometric perspective? Surprisingly – yes. Genesis is so good, in fact, that I wish it was the first game of this franchise.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Review – Nearly the Best CoD Ever

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Review – Nearly the Best CoD Ever

game review30 October 2019

Modern Warfare may not have the best campaign in the history of the Call of Duty series, but it certainly sets the bar high for all subsequent shooters about war. Sets it very, very high.

Planet Zoo Review – Is This Even a Game?

Planet Zoo Review – Is This Even a Game?

game review05 November 2019

An excellent, fascinating and satisfying... job. Playing Planet Zoo is like going to work. You try not to get tired, then you get tired, and in the end you're happy with what you accomplished anyway.

Sniper: Ghost Warrior Contracts Review – Sniper Meets Hitman

Sniper: Ghost Warrior Contracts Review – Sniper Meets Hitman

game review26 November 2019

Sniper: Ghost Warrior Contracts is basically Hitman with a sniper rifle instead of a disguise. And generally, this combination works pretty well.

The Outer Worlds Review – RPG of the Year? Yeah, of 2012

The Outer Worlds Review – RPG of the Year? Yeah, of 2012

game review22 October 2019

A year ago, Obsidian heralded The Outer Worlds on the wave of severe criticism of Fallout 76. Today, when Bethesda no longer provides the blanket of a terrible RPG release, things aren't so pretty anymore.

The Outer Worlds Review – RPG of the Year? Yeah, of 2012
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.

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

Gears 5 Review – All Cogs in Right Places
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.
