South Park: The Stick of Truth Review

One simple question: do you want to play through a really lengthy episode of South Park?

Thief Review

As a long-time fan of the Thief series, I’ve spent the last couple of years watching Eidos Montreal handling the license with all the apparent grace and judgment of a drunken juggler.

Banished Review

When I spoke to Luke Hodorowicz of Shining Rock Software last year I was super excited for Banished, not least because Luke was obviously a developer really passionate about his game and the city building genre.

The Wolf Among Us Episode 2 Review

How bloody long? Nearly four months. Four months between episodes. That’s a hell of a long time, Telltale.

Loadout Review

Back in the 90s, shooters were all the rage. They were fast and furious, with none of the slower, sneaky, stealthy, cover-based gameplay of today’s modern shooters.

Europa Universalis IV Conquest of Paradise DLC Review

It won’t come as a surprise to anybody who saw my picks of 2013 that I spend a fair amount of time messing about in Europa Universalis IV.

If you listened to the podcast then I apologise for going over old ground, but I want to tell you the story of my first experience with Might & Magic X: Legacy.

KickBeat Steam Edition Review

It’s fair to say I have a history with rhythm-action games.

Broken Age: Act One Review

There is one thing that Double Fine do better than pretty much anyone else in the games industry, and that’s write children and adolescents.

The Banner Saga Review

As either player or reviewer, losing five hours of progress in a game is a pretty dispiriting state of affairs.

Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag – Freedom Cry DLC Review

Freedom Cry is the first (and perhaps only, if the Season Pass description is anything to go by) bit of single player DLC for the well-received Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag.

Total War: Rome 2 Caesar in Gaul DLC Review

Total War: Rome 2 was a major disappointment when it was released in what appeared to be a semi-completed state back in September 2013.

World of Warplanes Review

Everyone knows about World of Tanks, it helped thrust Wargaming into the mainstream with its attention to detail and tactical online tank battles.

The Walking Dead Season 2: Episode 1 – All That Remains Review

This review contains at least one honking great spoiler for The Walking Dead Season 1.

Speedball 2 HD Review

The substantive difference between Speedball 2 HD and its Amiga incarnation is most easily illustrated with a short anecdote.

Crusader Kings II Sons of Abraham DLC Review

In Sons of Abraham, the latest and most religious add-on to appear for Crusader Kings II, it’s possible for the son or daughter of your ruler to turn out to be the spawn of Satan.

Logitech G602 Wireless Gaming Mouse Review

A mouse is a mouse, right? Well, it is if you’re messing about in spreadsheets or doing some of that surfing the Intertubes stuff.

SteamWorld Dig Review

SteamWorld Dig has a slightly weird comparison to Terraria in its little digital store page summary, which might give some people the wrong idea about the game.

Broken Sword 5: The Serpent’s Curse – Episode One Review

If you charted the quality of the Broken Sword series on a graph, with quality on the vertical axis and the games themselves on the horizontal axis, you’d get something that looks like the far side of a rather big hill.

State of Decay: Breakdown DLC Review

It took a fair while for State of Decay to make it over to the PC, but the slight benefit of this delay is that players haven’t had to wait especially long for Breakdown’s addition of a proper sandbox mode.

SimCity Cities of Tomorrow Review

SimCity is an evil game. It’s disgusting, in fact. I love SimCity but at the same time I hate it.

X Rebirth Review

X3: Terran Conflict was one of the first games I reviewed for IncGamers.

XCOM: Enemy Within Review

XCOM: Enemy Within is, in a lot of ways, the quintessential expansion pack.

Path of Exile Review

It was inevitable I’d end up handling the Path of Exile review, as I’ve been in and out of the game since the beta test started – which I think was back in about 1790.

Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag Review

At last, Ubisoft has embraced the benefits of piracy on the PC.

State of Decay Review

This State of Decay review is dedicated to Marcus Campbell. He was with me from the very start, bashing in zombie heads and doing supply runs at midnight no matter how fatigued he felt or how many other people were just standing around doing nothing.

Contrast Review

I’m going to try to talk Paul and Peter into instituting a new rule.

Deadfall Adventures Review

Deadfall Adventures bills itself as an homage to the pulp action-adventure stories found in the magazines of the 1920s to 1950s.
