Adventure 23 February 2010
An interactive thriller adventure game developed by studio Quantic Dream (Fahrenheit, Omikron: The Nomad Soul). The player controls several seemingly unrelated characters, each with their own storylines and motivations. How the story develops depends greatly on the decisions made by the player as all plots intertwine until they meet at the game's finale. What’s characteristic for the game is its focus on matters of morality and ethics. The developers took extra care to reflect the various types of human behavior and feelings of the characters in as realistic a way as possible. It can be noticed for example in great facial expressions. The game features high quality graphics with spectacular explosions and realistic weather conditions.

Metro Exodus is the third installment of the popular FPS series based on the books by Dmitry Glukhovsky and developed by 4A Games. Once again we play as Artyom who ventures through what remains of Russia after a nuclear war that took place twenty years before the action of the game. Metro Exodus is kind of an evolution of what we saw in the series' previous installments. As usual, we explore the game's rich world (this time, along with the tunnels, also the world’s surface), fight with the encountered enemies, and try to be as stealthy as possible. Stealth plays an important role in the game because we will encounter not only well-armed human survivors, but also mutants. Defeating a smaller one may not be that hard, but the more powerful mutants can be rather difficult to kill. As usual, the latest installment of the Metro series features visuals of the highest quality.

An online action RPG developed by Phoenix Labs studio, established by former employees of Capcom, Blizzard, Riot Games and BioWare. Dauntless takes us to Shattered Isles – a fantasy world destroyed by a mysterious cataclysm, with its continents torn apart and their fragments floating in the air. Those few who survived must face Behemoths – aggressive creatures that pose danger to all survivors, their only hope being warriors who hunt the beasts. Dauntless focuses on cooperation mode and performing quests, most of which come down to hunting monsters. Due to the fact that they possess not only brute strength but also intelligence, it is necessary to learn their behavior and weak points before engaging them. Time plays a huge role in the battles – the more we fight, the faster and more ferocious they become. Heroes can use many different weapons and combat styles, as well as special skills. Defeating opponents gets players energy, called archonite, which can be used to upgrade arsenal and armors – the bigger the monster, the bigger the benefits. Dauntless employs carton-like visuals.

Adventure 13 March 2012
Developed by the thatgamecompany studio, Journey is a remarkably unique exploration game, in which we embark on a journey through the desert sands. Our goal is to reach the summit of a great mountain, constantly visible on the horizon. A distinctive feature of Journey is the fact that we do not get a lot of exposure - the production lacks a classic narrative and does not have any dialogues; the nature of our protagonist and of the world we are in, which once harbored a mighty civilization, is all but unknown to us, a mystery, the true nature of which we can only speculate. The game consists of semi-open levels, which contain various puzzles and hidden locations. After passing through each of them we arrive at the next stage and the accompanying cut-scenes allow us to gradually discover and interpret the subsequent fragments of the plot. Journey also has one very intriguing curio - while playing the online mode we can encounter other players and at any time start playing in the co-op mode - but we still have to make do without verbal communication. All of the above is distinguished by an unusual, melancholic atmosphere and very artistic visuals, with focus on a minimalistic but incisive graphic style.
