Zeno Clash Review

Zeno Clash is full of inconsistencies that make it a linear, repetitive and ultimately forgettable adventure. I’ve always found fascinating how some pieces of fiction can take some elements from real-life and use those to create universes that feel bizarre, weird and simply unique. That’s definitely the case of franchises …

Half-Life: Blue Shift Review

Half-Life: Blue Shift is a vapid and insipid expansion that you can totally do without. As soon as fans of the Half-Life series found out that Gearbox Entertainment was in charge of another expansion, they must have wondered if the company was going to be able to replicate the success …

Half-Life: Opposing Force Review

With Opposing Force, Gearbox managed to create an expansion that feels true to the series’ spirit while adding a lot of their own DNA to the game. How do you create a follow-up to one of the greatest video games of all time? That’s what the people at Gearbox Entertainment …

Half-Life Review

Even after so many years of its release, it’s easy to see what makes Half-Life such a revolutionary title. Not only did Half-Life revolutionize the first-person shooter genre, but also video games as a medium. Its relentless action, terrific voice acting, variety of weapons and enemies, rich story, great multiplayer …

OMG Zombies! Review

OMG Zombies! is an entertaining but ultimately flawed game that will keep you entertained until its hard levels make you quit out of frustration. Video games about zombies are so ubiquitous that pretty much any genre has been infected by the post-apocalyptic premise. Some of these genres include first-person shooters …

The Novelist Review

Despite some problems, The Novelist is still an intriguing game with some compelling concepts. How do you balance work with your personal life? How do you know when to follow your passion and when to spend time with your family? These are the main thoughts that dominate The Novelist, an …

Magic 2015 Review

Magic 2015 gets rids of some of the best aspects of its predecessor and replaces them with questionable design decisions which totally ruin the experience. For most games it would be difficult to justify the release a new entry in the series every single year. But up to now, the …

The Wolf Among Us Review

The Wolf Among Us is an absorbing point-and-click adventure game with a strong cast of characters and for that alone, no fan of the genre should miss it. Although developer Telltale Games had done some meaningful contributions to the point-and-click adventure genre prior to the release of The Walking Dead, …

Shovel Knight Review

Shovel Knight is like one of the treasures the main character finds inside hidden chests: this is a polished, bright and valuable gem you shouldn’t miss. Shovel Knight is a retro-style experience that sounds, looks and feels like a game from the NES era. This is a title that will …

Among the Sleep Review

Despite some problems, Among the Sleep is a game worth playing and an experience worth having. How does a child perceive reality? Do children fear the same monsters adults do? Do they know what a conventional monster looks like or is that a concept they develop as they grow up? …

Octodad: Dadliest Catch Review

A game about an octopus living among humans should be more ridiculous and entertaining than Octodad: Dadliest Catch. In most games, physical prowess is a defining aspect of the main character. Mario climbs flagpoles in a elegant way, the Prince of Persia jumps over walls and lands on wooden beams …

Anomaly Defenders Review

Even if it feels like a step backwards for the series, Anomaly Defenders is still an entertaining tower defense game. The Anomaly series has always felt new and refreshing in ways most tower defense simply don’t. But what makes the series so refreshing? Technically, previous entries in the series weren’t …

ibb & obb Review

If you have somebody to play with, ibb & obb should definitely be part of your digital collection. Why is it that competitive games are much more popular than cooperative games? Maybe competition is part of human nature and cooperating with other people isn’t as fulfilling as relying on no …
