Endless Fables: The Minotaur's Curse Collector's Edition Icon
Mitico e mitologico
by Roberto Guarchi, Italy - Nov 15th 2017

Il produttore di questo gioco conferma che è in grado di essere ancora... mitico (tanto per restare in sintonia con la storia)! In particolare, anche in questo game il meccanismo delle scene con oggetti nascosti viene ulteriormente perfezionato, con abbinamenti multipli che stimolano la ricerca. (Quasi) nulla da eccepire: storia accettabile dal respiro mitologico, mini-giochi complicati al punto giusto, filmati davvero ben fatti, così come le musiche e le immagini. Il capitolo bonus è semplice ma comunque apprezzabile. Unica nota dolente, secondo me, la crescita abnorme degli oggetti nascosti e mutevoli da trovare: una ricerca che alla fine distrae persino dal gioco principale (ce ne sono anche nel capitolo bonus!). Questa moda proprio non mi piace, quindi 3 stelle. Decidete voi, io lo consiglio.

[The producer of this game confirms that he is still able to be ... mythical (to keep in tune with the story)! Specifically, even in this game the mechanism of scenes with hidden objects is further refined, with multiple combinations that stimulate the search. (Almost) nothing to excuse: a story that is acceptable from mythological breath, complicated mini-games to the right point, really well-made movies, as well as music and images. The bonus chapter is simple but still appreciated. The only unfortunate note in my mind is the abnormal growth of hidden and changing objects to be found: a search that eventually distracts even the main game (there are also in the bonus chapter!). This fashion just does not like, so 3 stars. You decide, I'll advise you.]

Engaging and immersive game as any other.
by David D., Spain - Nov 15th 2017

Engaging and immersive game as any other. A realistic and harsh take on the survival genre. Definitely worth a try.

Sphinx and the Cursed Mummy Icon
Need A Gamepad
by Daniel Steven Oles, USA - Nov 13th 2017

This is a competent port of a decent game with one exception...it is COMPLETEY unoptomized for keyboards. You can't adjust the controls or even figure out what they are without outside research because everything comes up as gamepad symbols.
It's still a pretty game, runs smooth, and takes some puzzling as well as fighting to play which is lovely, but it doesn't mention this big issue so it's a difficult to reccomend nostalgia trip.

Age of Enigma Icon
Statico ma divertente
by Roberto Guarchi, Italy - Nov 13th 2017

Un gioco ad enigmi con varie ambientazioni, in cui dobbiamo guidare fantasmi verso la loro terra e la loro epoca. Incontriamo una "selva" di mini-giochi dentro un percorso nel classico genere "punta e clicca". Complessivamente si tratta di un game con una storia lineare, buone musiche, immagini ben realizzate... e tanta staticità. Di certo risente del tempo che è passato, eppure ci tiene incollati al monitor e assicura qualche ora di buon divertimento. Tre stelle e il consiglio di provarlo se lo trovate super-scontato.

[A puzzle game with various settings, in which we have to drive ghosts to their land and their age. We meet a "wild" mini-games within a classic "tip and click" path. Overall it is a game with a linear story, good music, well-made images ... and so much staticity. Certainly it suffers of the time it has passed, yet keeps us glued to the monitor and ensures a few hours of fun. Three stars and advice to try it if you find it super-discounted.]

Europa Universalis IV: Res Publica Icon
Nice n cheap
by Carl V., Denmark - Nov 13th 2017

This is small expansion both in features and price, but yet it is (in my opinion) a must have for playing the Netherlands

Enigmatis: The Mists of Ravenwood Collector's Edition Icon
Interessante, con qualche difetto
by Roberto Guarchi, Italy - Nov 10th 2017

In termini di puro racconto, di atmosfere, di ritmo della narrativa, Enigmatis anche con questo episodio si conferma tra le saghe più interessanti tra i titoli di Artifex. Purtroppo non è in italiano! Ci troviamo davanti a vicende al limite tra l'esoterico e il religioso e, dal punto della giocabilità, è da apprezzare l'ottima cura nei dettagli a partire dalle scene con oggetti nascosti, mentre purtroppo la varietà dei mini-giochi non è altissima: molti si basano sul movimento contemporaneo di più elementi. Altro fattore negativo è la presenza di una mappa non molto dettagliata, che costringe a ricorrere spesso all'aiuto per capire dove occorre andare. Quattro stelle perché è davvero un peccato che non sia anche in lingua italiana... per l'editore un'occasione persa per ampliare il numero degli acquirenti!

[In terms of pure tale, atmospheres, rhythm of fiction, Enigmatis also with this episode is confirmed by the most interesting sagas among the titles of Artifex. Unfortunately it is not in Italian! We find ourselves in front of the limit between the esoteric and the religious and, from the point of playability, we appreciate the great care in details from scenes with hidden objects, but unfortunately the variety of mini-games is not very high: many rely on the contemporary movement of several elements. Another negative factor is the presence of a non-detailed map, which often requires assistance to understand where to go. Four stars because it's really a pity that is not even in Italian ... for the publisher a missed opportunity to expand the number of buyers!]

Football Manager 2018 Icon
No Red Card for Simulation Here
by Jamedog, Australia - Nov 10th 2017

My first foray into the Football Manager franchise, and boy is it in-depth. This is the title to buy if you prefer the management aspect of FIFA over the actual gameplay.

Echoes of Sorrow 2 Icon
Good mix of HOG and Mini games
by Marcel Dufresne, Canada - Nov 8th 2017

Echoes of Sorrow has two levels of play which makes it good for the novice as well as the experienced player. There is a good mix of HOG and mini-games. Unfortunately, the replay value is low as all the HOG screens and the mini-games are the same each time you play.

Entertaining and relaxing

A fancy Pac Man
by Cat Lady, USA - Nov 5th 2017

This game reminds me of a fancy Pac Man. There are also levels with interesting games. I still can not find details on how to play it but most of it you can figue out.

Solitaire Jack Frost Winter Adventures 2 Icon
Permanent Crash Fail
by Douglas L., USA - Nov 3rd 2017

The game ran in High Sierra OS 10.13.1 a couple of times, then began to crash on launch. Reinstalling it, redownloading it, nothing helps.

Lilly Looking Through Icon
Adorable but short
by kyrq, USA - Nov 2nd 2017

This game was quite enjoyable to play, with the cute characters and the ability to switch between worlds to solve problems. Unfortunately the game ends rather abruptly to the point that it left me feeling unsatisfied. I guess it feels like they had more in mind with the game, but was unable to complete it.

Nevertales: Legends Collector's Edition Icon
Great HOG
by kyrq, USA - Nov 2nd 2017

This game was a definitely well made HOG. Yes, the story line is rather predictable but the gameplay is interesting and varied. I don't recall any of the puzzles being overly difficult or too easy.

Cognition Game of the Year Edition Icon
Amazing story
by kyrq, USA - Nov 2nd 2017

The graphics for the game are really nice, and the story is definitely intriguing. The voice acting is great. Gameplay can be rather sluggish though
