Avernum 2 Crystal Souls Review

Having not played the predecessor of Avernum 2 Crystal Souls, I went into this game without any real expectations. It is a TBS, RPG indie game. Initially I had thought that it would be similar to a watered down version of Final Fantasy, but that was not the case. Avernum...

Surgeon Simulator Review

This is a game that starts with complete frustration and eventually turns into useless skills that you will never use anywhere else. I started playing this game because I saw it as a challenge, but I can’t really say whether or not I succeeded in that challenge or whether it...

Dragon Age Inquisition Review

The Dragon Age series is one that has a lot of mixed reviews from many of the people that have played them. Some state that the gameplay from the two previous games differ greatly and I, personally, much prefer Dragon Age: Origins to Dragon Age II. Much like how one...

Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor Review

With so many games this year disappointing fans all across the board, Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor started off as a game that most people labeled as an “Assassins Creed Clone” and ignored it. But then we are introduced to the nemesis system and everyone changed their minds and started to...

Hyphen Review

*Note: I did not finish Hyphen due to the games extreme difficulty. I finished roughly 2/3’s of the game.   Hyphen is an Indie game created by a studio called Far Space Games. When I received this review, I had no idea what to expect. Little did I know that...

Ascendant Review

One commonly used phrase, “rouge-likes,” has been thrown around a lot over the last two years or so.  So it was only a matter of time before a game like Ascendant came along.  A game that is so frustratingly difficult, that I only made it through the first couple of...

Z-Run Review

Oh, Z-Run, I can honestly say that I was excited to get to play this game.  A nice new Indie game for my PS Vita that features zombies and a decent but simple concept of getting from point A to point B.  Sadly though it’s nothing but that, a nice...

inFamous: Second Son Review

Even though I didn’t enjoy it as much as others, the Infamous series has always interested me. Putting players into the role of a modern-day superhero, the original Infamous was built on a pretty solid foundation. The sequel made a number of improvements, but the game still didn’t reach its...

Knightmare Tower Review

Fast, fun and simple; is probably the easiest way to describe Knightmare Tower.  The story is minimal; you are a knight who must battle the enemies of a dark tower and save several princesses along the way.  Although it sounds uninteresting, the story really doesn’t matter anyways.  The addictive, vertical-scrolling,...

Ionball 2: Ionstorm Review

The time I spent with Ionball 2 made me think about how much fun I used to have with games like Brick Break. Ionball 2 takes that very same formula of you trying to break all the “bricks” (in the case of this game the bricks are robots), with a...

Sid Meier’s Civilization V – Review

I have never played a *Civilization game prior to jumping into **Civ V.  To be honest, I don’t have much time playing strategy games either, but the series has always intrigued me and been in my backlog for a while now.  I was told by some friends that I will...

Final Fantasy X HD Review

When first released for the Playstation 2, Final Fantasy X was a drastic departure for the series.  The series was taken into many new directions.   Non-linearity was fundamental to the franchise, and it is partially the reason why so many gamers loved the early iterations, yet FFX is quite linear...

Bound by Flame Review

Some of my favorite games, such as Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic and Jade Empire, allow you to choose between good and evil. More importantly, those choices between good and evil affect the story of the game. Not many games share this characteristic, so when I heard about...
