The Dwarves Icon
A Role-Playing Game About Roleplaying!
by Daniel Steven Oles, USA - Dec 6th 2016

The modernday requirement of all RPGs to be about making proxy characters has the downside of those characters not really existing in the framework of a story. Every player character is Dragon Age or Skyrim or even Tyranny feels pretty interchangable because they're fully customizable and therefore cannot have much of a footing in the world except as a generic 'chosen one'.

But The Dwarves does something different I've been hoping for: you play as a character who already has a backstory, already has a voice and attitude and skillset. Some might argue this makes the game predicatable but as a fan of story I GREATLY enjoy discovering by degrees how my character and the other characters as well fit into the grander scheme. I also like how the character is not intrinsically a masterful warrior or hallowed chosen one...he's a blacksmith. Most of the time he has few allies and is more tollerated than cheered for his efforts, and it's a unique experience!

As to the game itself it's quite an enjoyable pause-and-play system although at times it seems a bit chaotic. Still for all the massive amount of units on screen it handles fine, the music is epic, the acting fantastic.

This game makes me want to read the book the game is based on but as good as that might be it won't quite match the experience of unraveling the story from the inside by actually looking at things, talking to people, and making decisions.

I do hope that there's still a market for strong storydriven experiences centered on as well written characters as these. It's highly enjoyable!

BioShock Infinite - Season Pass Icon
Finishes everything off
by libarata, USA - Dec 6th 2016

Play all three primary games, and this pass will make much more sense. Re-invigorates everything, and makes you wish there would be more!

I love the scenery, setting, and feel of the game. It is fully immersive, and you will want to explore more than play!

Tyranny: Archon Edition Icon
A Good Game with Game Breaking Crashing and Freezing
by Reid Goulder, USA - Dec 6th 2016

I like the game a lot from what I can play of it. However once you are able to leave the first area Vendrien's Well and enter Lothian's Crossing I have consistent freezing in that area. it is unplayable. Others on the paradox forums have reported the same. It appears to be affecting Linux and Mac users only. It is a known issue they are looking into but until they fix it the game sits in my steam library and I can't recommend anyone purchase it at this time.

Vacation Adventures: Park Ranger 5 Icon
Nice hidden object franchise
by Prince_Bryant, Portugal - Dec 5th 2016

Vacation Adventures Park Ranger 5 it's the best one in the series. While from edition 3 to 4 there were similar levels, edition 5 brings all new places to search for objects, animal species and clean up the environment in the process.

Puzzle games are all brand new too, although there are no original ideas compared to previous editions. Mini puzzle games should be an option feature, because the Park Ranger series are good to replay, but waiting 3 minutes to skip mini puzzles it's a little annoying.

Overall it's a great game for Hidden Object lovers and edition 5 it's one of the best in the series.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Resurgence Pack Icon
Resurgence Pack
by Louis DeLaura, USA - Dec 5th 2016

Much like the stimulis pack, the maps in the resurgence pack aren't anything special. The real advantage this has is that you won't be kicked out of servers for not having the maps anymore. My advice would be to buy only on sale. But not at $14.99

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Stimulus Package Icon
Eh
by Louis DeLaura, USA - Dec 5th 2016

The Stimulus package is ok. A couple maps here and there but they aren't nearly as good as the ones in MW2 originally. The real advantage this has is that you don't get kicked out of servers if you don't have the maps anymore.

Crookz – The Big Heist Icon
One of the best game I've ever played
by Xantas, Italy - Dec 4th 2016

Crookz is a mix of squad-tactical, stealth puzzle and semi-real strategy game. Plus there is a plot: the story revolves around a group of professional highly skilled thieves seeking revenge against a former member team who betrayed them some years before. And to reach that goal, you'll deal with 18 missions, each on a big, complex map, in an execellent level progression and difficulty curve. The game has a good replayability. Note: I've played the game on Ubuntu, and on that OS the game has proved to be stable and robust; never had a single crash, and this is very rare for games not targeted towards Windows machines!
