WWE 2K17 review

YM2qGG2zUoCui5k6HzSvWk-320-80

Buy it Humble Store Read our affiliates policy. WWE 2K17 offers a competent combat system. You initiate strikes and grapples through various button combinations, and watch as the animations play out. The strategy of each match revolves around reversals, which mimics the back-and-forth structure of professional wrestling. The slow pace is an acquired taste, and feels more suited to lumbering ...

Take On Mars review

v5b6JKYLCq8c7n6vZZVAtZ-320-80

I’ve been playing Take On Mars on and off since it was released through Steam Early Access in 2013. It first attracted my attention because of how unusual it was. A game about trundling around the surface of Mars with a rover, probing soil, looking at rocks, and listening to the lonely howl of the wind. It appealed to me ... Read More »

Sniper Elite 4 review

sUVDHjn7xUeJV36q77uuYY-320-80

Buy it: Humble Store Read our affiliates policy.  I tried playing Sniper Elite 4 as a pure stealth game, carefully sneaking past patrols and waiting for a plane to roar overhead to mask the crack of my rifle as I debrained my first fascist officer. But a little while later some wandering putz spotted me and so I sniped him, ... Read More »

For Honor review

sQM3AVJKSMPSDwgZfAtcAE-320-80

Buy it Humble store Read our affiliates policy If you showed a historian footage of For Honor, a game in which samurai, vikings, and knights fight each other, they’d spit their tea out and politely ask you to leave. It makes no sense for these chronologically distinct factions to be fighting for control of the same continent, but it doesn’t ... Read More »

Halo Wars 2 review

s7YD2az9FpiDecMW55Ve79-320-80

I can’t help but admire the crew members of the Spirit of Fire. For almost three decades they’ve been in a starship locked in cryosleep (in some uncomfy looking chambers, no less), yet when the ship’s dying AI finally sends out a wake-up call, they pop out into action, hardhats already donned. By the time the ship’s scruffy Captain Cutter ... Read More »

Torment: Tides of Numenera review

RGbmc7yziasMLtEbGSjUoA-320-80

Read our affiliates policy.  Torment occupies a special place in the history of PC roleplaying games. It sticks  in the memory: Baldur’s Gate’s stranger, sexier, smarter sibling, interested in headier stuff than swords and sorcery. The original Torment was highly regarded and its influence is felt throughout the RPG genre, from Pillars of Eternity’s soul-reading to the warped denizens of ... Read More »

Deus Ex: A Criminal Past DLC review

R6trT7yGDvmw3jpVwoUyX9-320-80

Buy it Humble store Read our affiliates policy.   The Penthouse is a maximum security prison balanced on top of a mesa somewhere in the Arizona desert. Built to house augmented criminals, there are cameras, drones, armed guards, laser grids, and automated turrets everywhere you look. The perfect playground for an immersive sim. But when Jensen first arrives, working undercover ... Read More »

Ghost Recon Wildlands review

QRJHqPEjwJ4atsAbAXXW5B-320-80

Buy it Humble Store Read our affiliates policy  Ghost Recon Wildlands is better with friends, which means, if you follow the statement to its logical conclusion, it’s worse without. Wildlands’ co-op mode isn’t an extra or an afterthought. It’s the driving force behind design decisions that make for a poorer singleplayer experience. There are problems no matter how you choose ...

Mass Effect: Andromeda review

Pp3yMHnECkLxabEaCF3sEQ-320-80

Ten years ago, the first Mass Effect packed a season’s worth of TV sci-fi into a game and put you in the role of director and lead character. Its sequels took your decisions and spun them into series-spanning arcs, held onto the characters you liked and built deep relationships around them. There is a reason that Shepard’s trilogy means as ... Read More »
