Grand Theft Auto: Episodes from Liberty City  Add to game list
Rating of: 3.5/5

Two standalone missions using the GTA IV engine, with all of its strengths and weaknesses intact.

Grand Theft Auto IV  Add to game list
Rating of: 3.5/5

While GTA makes use of the Xbox 360's far superior technical specs to create an amazing elaborate and lifelike city to roam around, the lack of likeable characters and sense of humour make it far less fun to play than the PS2 GTA games. Technically very impressive, but ti's yet another case of developers prioritising realism over fun.

CT Special Forces  Add to game list
Rating of: 3/5

Run and gun shooter that's basically Metal Slug without the sense of humour and special weapons. Well put together but a little too samey.

Celeste  Add to game list
Rating of: 4.5/5

Celeste Is Certainly a Mountain Worth Climbing

Celeste came about when Noel Berry and Matt Thorson (of Towerfall fame) created the original version in four hours for a game jam event. This version is more of a classic platformer geared toward precision movement and speedrunning in mind (and similar to the mini-game you can find in the completed version of Celeste) and it garnered so much attention and rave reviews that many clamored for a ful...

Dark Quest 2  Add to game list
Rating of: 3/5

Both Heroic and Generic at the Same Time.

Dark Quest 2 will appeal to a certain audience as the game bears a not-so-subtle resemblance to 90s board game, "Hero Quest" - a kind of high fantasy, D&D lite-type game full of miniatures and generic fantasy that, despite its basic premise, probably influenced a lot of impressionable nerds back in the day, myself included. Those nostalgic for a trip down memory lane, and wanting that experience ...

Shadowrun Returns  Add to game list
Rating of: 3.5/5

Before Returning, One Must Go Somewhere

In 1989, tabletop gaming was both at a high point and on the precipice. While TSR, the company founded by Dungeons & Dragons co-creator, Gary Gygax, was in the midst of financial woes that would ultimately lead to its doom, it was also producing a lot of comparably weird stuff, at least when compared side-by-side with the relatively sedate and stable High Fantasy and historical material it had pr...

Kirby Star Allies  Add to game list
Rating of: 3.5/5

‘Kirby, Super-Bore

“Kirby Star Allies” is the latest game in the long-running ‘Kirby’ franchise, developed by Nintendo second-party, HAL Laboratory. With a long-term focus on relaxing gameplay and multi-player cooperative action, the ‘Kirby’ series has been a go-to for the MJ Crew for quite some time. However, our expectations weren’t met by this latest entry, which instead, left us feeling deflated.

Dark Quest 2  Add to game list
Rating of: 3.5/5

‘Hero’ and ‘Dark’ are both Four-Letter Words

As we all know, the cRPG – that is, the Computerized Role-Playing Game – is the descendant of tabletop RPGs, which are themselves descendants of tabletop wargames, which are descendants of board games, stretching all the way back to the Chess-like games played by our ancient ancestors. In the early 1990s, this lineage was revealed more plainly than ever when Milton-Bradley, the American toy and b...

Just Cause 3  Add to game list
Rating of: 3.5/5

Destruction Thy Name is Just Cause 3

The Just Cause series has been around since 2006, but I admit I skipped the first and second entry and jumped right in with this third game, mainly because it has been given the most praise (even over the more recently-released fourth entry). The game is essentially a run-and-gun, open world destruct-a-thon. This is not exactly a unique concept (see also the Far Cry series, Crysis series, Red Fac...

Red Dead Redemption  Add to game list
Rating of: 4/5

A Western Worth Experiencing

Red Dead Redemption is a well put together western experience but its technical issues and sometimes confusing story choices prevents it from becoming the masterpiece that some claim it to be.

Red Dead Redemption is a story about a character named John Marston who lives near the U.S. and Mexico border and is on a mission to take out a couple members of his former gang in order to save his fami...
