A small art piece!
by Yeves Hummels, United Kingdom - May 26th 2016

A very beautiful and educational indie game with a good idea. That is a fantasitic way to demonstrate the history.

Mount & Blade: Warband Icon
The best one of all M&B games!
by Yeves Hummels, United Kingdom - May 26th 2016

I am a M&B fan and this is my favourite game of all the series.

The game itself is really attractive because of its sand-box feature and everything in the game is highly personalised. There are plenty of ways to write your own story, develop your heros and build up the relationship with the characters in the virtue medieval world. If you like history, you can also find a lot of elements related with some major civilisations in the Middle Ages.

The MODs of this game is another great feature, you can find many interesting MODs of this game with various historic periods.

Another good thing is, even your computer is not out-of-date, you can probably still enjoy the game. The minimum requirement of your hardware is not high, but if you own a powerful computer you can then enjoy the fantastic graphics.

If you are considering other games like Chivalry, I think M&B would be much better with its game depth. After all M&B is not only a medeival war simulator and melee combat is just a small part of the game.

The final suggestion is, actually this game, along with its DLCs, is quite popular and it is on sale very often. It is possible to cost you less than £5/$8 to get this game, just pay attention to the on sale news!

Victory At Sea Icon
A good naval game
by Yeves Hummels, United Kingdom - May 26th 2016

This game is very attractive for me since I am interested in navy ships hobby models, especially the ships in the two world wars. At the same time, we cannot find many good naval battle choices on PC/MAC.

The Pros:

- A real-time naval battle game, but you can stop at any time to make adjustments (Turn-based-like mechanism);
- You can cammand a whole fleet to fight the enemies, control the course and the weapons of each ship;
- A lot of freedom in the game, you can capture enemie's harbours, be a convoy commander, or make a decisive battle on the open sea...... choose you own strategy in the world map;
- Realistic data and model of the warships with many different classes;
- Deployment before battle is interesting, especially you get submarines in your fleet;
- 2D Overlook mode and 3D mode;
- You can also control the famous ships from the two France and Italy except GB, USA, Germany and Japan;
- You can capture enemy's warship after a battle;
- Good damage design in the battle;

The Cons:

- A bit repetitive in campaign mode;
- Very time-consuming in the late stage of the game, since you need to take charge of a big fleet with many different functional warships, you have to pause the battle very often to make small changes and still easy to miss many details in the battle. So the game can be finally veeeeeeery complicated;
- Graphic is okay but not charming, especially for the ships;
- The battlefield is too simple, only open sea: no reefs, no islands, no coasts, no navy bases, even no weather change;
- The sunlight is good but doesn't make any sense for your firing tactics;

Torchlight II Icon
You will enjoy this if you are a Diablo/Diablo II fan
by Yeves Hummels, United Kingdom - May 26th 2016

With its close relationship to Blizzard North, the developer group who created Diablo and Diablo II, you can find the game machenism, some key in-game items and even some game sounds are familiar if you are a Diablo/Diablo II fan.

Compared with Torchlight I, you can now enjoy the multiplayer mode with your friends and other players online. The game is also has many MODs which are available from Steam workshop, this is an important advantage to Diablo III.

Unlike Diablo III's revolutionary levelling system, if you prefer the more 'traditional' ARPG and also like trying some interesting game MODs, Torchlight II will be a wonderful choice.

The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited Icon
Fun game
by sirki, USA - May 25th 2016

The game is really fun and have a lot of content, but once you do those contents the game gets rather boring. Its not sub based though so the money is worth it i guess.

SUPERHOT Icon
Innovative, but a little vain.
by Valkade Cavel, USA - May 24th 2016

This WOULD be five stars but the story (not spoiling anything) is EXTREMELY pretencious. Gameplaywise, however it is fatastic. I would sugest it. Good price, fair performance, and groundbreaking mechanics. Valkade says buy it!

The Travels of Marco Polo Icon
Short, amusing, forgettable
by green_knight, United Kingdom - May 23rd 2016

It took me three hours to play through this game (I opted for the 'consult a game guide' rather than 'bang head against wall' option), and I'd almost say this is one of the game's strengths: rather than an endless slog though ever-repeating puzzles the game explores the whole space of point-and-click _and then stops_. This gives you an amusing story with marvellous graphics and varied challenges that holds no tedium. All in all, it's an interesting taster of the story of Marco Polo, and a good way to spend an afternoon if you like this type of game.

Roaming Fortress Icon
Action strategy
by Juanita705, Canada - May 23rd 2016

This game is good if you're looking for action and strategy, but keep in mind it really isn't a tower defense game. Yes, you equip your "roaming fortress" with things to defend and attack, but there is quite a bit of effort required on the player's part to manually select what attacks to use and manually target the enemies. Also, from what I can tell, it looks like the further you progress in the game, the fewer auto-target equipments are unlocked (I'd better practice my aim, haha!). If you're looking for something with more calculating strategy, I'd suggest looking for something more like a tower defense, but if you're looking for a game with action strategy, this is pretty good.

The Silent Age Icon
Charming and innovative
by Jack Fate, United Kingdom - May 23rd 2016

A very enjoyable game. The graphic style provides an inviting backdrop to some solid point and click gaming. The puzzles, though not overly taxing are still challenging enough while the time-travel mechanic adds extra depth to the gameplay. The storyline keeps you hooked and will stay in the mind long after you've seen the end credits roll.

Gabriel Knight - Sins of Father - 20th Anniversary Edition Icon
Execellent Adventure Game!
by Vanfogel, Finland - May 22nd 2016

I don't usually play these kind of games, but got to say that this was surprising good adventure game. Very good plot and lot of things to do, and also this not easy game that you really have to think ahead about these puzzles. I think this game is timeless, that you could play this game even after 20 years.

Doom is doom and that's it!
by Vanfogel, Finland - May 22nd 2016

Even after decades, this game still kick's butt. Simply the classic game, that really challenges you (try harder levels) and shooting is just fun. Brings lot of memories from the good old times :)

Adds new unit models for the main protestant nations.
by Swampos, Czech Republic - May 22nd 2016

Bohemia looks bit out of place though. It expands the gameplay and it's cheap.

Nancy Drew: Trail of the Twister Icon
Not one of the better ND games
by JT&LB, USA - May 21st 2016

This game was very tedious. The story and characters were weak and predictable. The game was basically completing tasks that had nothing to do with the story. The trap the mice puzzle had to be done 4 different times, which became boring after the 2nd time. Some of the puzzles were not explained very well and there wasn't a way to repeat the directions. So after the first time you opened the puzzle, you had no directions. If you had to leave the game and came back to a puzzle, you're out of luck. The driving the car on the map was extremely funny, kept on crashing, but it became annoying after awhile. It was just a tedious way to get from one place to another. I thought using the GPS, which appears on the bottom of the screen, would help, but it didn't. All in all, it's an OK game.

This content pack adds a couple of new stuff but it's overpriced

Europa Universalis IV: Common Sense Icon
Sense not so common
by Marino1278, Germany - May 21st 2016

Common sense is a major expansion for Crusader Kings II. It adds a better province management, new religious gameplay and other stuff. Maybe people already tired of paradox DLCs but it's still good.
