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, gameplay will keep you coming…

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 paddle and a fast moving…

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 lose dozens of hours of…

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 Bound by Flame, I was…

Paranormal State Poison Spring Collector’s Editon Review

Paranormal State Poison Spring Collector’s Editon Developer: Legacy Games Have you ever wanted to go ghost hunting? Always curious about how all the ghost hunting equipment actually works? Yet, your still a bit iffy to go out and take part of a real ghost hunt with others. You can now, from the comfort of your…

Doctor Who: The Adventure Games Review

As a big Whovian myself, I can happily say that the Doctor Who Adventure Games will satisfy any hunger for content, that any lover of the Doctor might be having lately. The game has been out for a while, in an episodic format, but all of the episodes have now been bundled in one purchasable…

Knights of Pen and Paper +1 Edition Review

Knights of Pen and Paper +1 Edition is quite the game. It looked interesting on the Steam store, so I contacted the publishers, Paradox Interactive for a review copy (a big thank you to them by the way), and I installed the game. What I got sucked into was something truly unique. Take Dungeons and…

Jack Lumber Review

Wood Ninja! I mean, uh, Jack Lumber! The entire time I played this game, I kept thinking to myself, “Man this reminds me a lot of Fruit Ninja!” Now don’t get me wrong; just because the gameplay is extremely similar to Fruit Ninja doesn’t change the fact that this game is awesome and addictive. When…

Ace of Spades Review

What a fantastic premise for a game Ace of Spades is. A class-based multiplayer FPS with the free-formed creation and destruction of Minecraft sounds like wonderful music to my ears. Several Minecraft mods have tried to replicate this idea, but Ace of Spades is the first one to become its own game and make it…

Dead Pixels Review

Dead Pixels is an addictive zombie shooting spree recently released on Steam after passing through Steam’s Greenlight. It had previously been released on Desura. I am happy to report that Dead Pixels is a great game for zombie lovers; to an extent. The gameplay is simple: run and gun. If it’s moving, don’t stop pumping…

Painkiller: Hell & Damnation

Painkiller: Hell & Damnation is a remake of Painkiller. It’s a PC exclusive FPS which pays tribute to the good old days of shooters, where you could carry more than 2 guns, and the enemies were creative and original. In my personal opinion, the original Painkiller is more fun than any man deserves to experience…

Intrusion 2 Review

Intrusion 2 has the perfect way of bringing in an old school style and making you enjoy it. This game gives you every chance to annihilate everything standing in your path. You’ll be able to destroy soldiers, wolves, robotics suits, and a variety of other things as they relentlessly focus their assault upon you. The…

War of the Roses Review

War of the Roses sets you in a medieval battleground in which your skills will be put to the test to rank up and allow your character to become a killing machine. Getting kills and ranking up new classes will be unlocked for you to find which one suits you best, and master it. As…

FTL Review

FTL is an Indie game now available on Steam, which takes the more intense side of space battles. Instead of mindlessly blowing away enemies with your weapons, you’ll have to scramble and analyze every aspect of your ship while in battle. Ever wanted to be a captain of a space ship? Remember in Star Trek…

Torchlight 2 Review

Torchlight 2 is the big sequel to Torchlight, which is now available on Steam. Torchlight 2 took everything Diablo 3 did, and made it even better. With an insane amount of replay value and content, Torchlight 2 is a great deal at only $20. Is the quantity equal to the quality? Yes it is, and…

Paranormal Review

Paranormal is the type of game that will leave you wishing that this never happens to you. You are Matel Clark, an artist who has decided to record the recent events transpiring in his house. The game places you in the setting of a house in San Francisco, California that has been around since 1910…

Guild Wars 2 Review

The superlative “Most Revolutionary MMO of 2012” is most often used when describing Guild Wars 2. Seeing as I was a fan of Guild Wars 1 and played it quite a bit, I knew that I had to pick up this game the minute it was announced. I honestly have a hard time describing it…

Batman: Arkham City Harley Quinn’s Revenge DLC Review

Weeks after the events of Arkham City’s main story, Harley Quinn returns, and she’s worse than ever. Harley has taken over the Joker’s old steel mill hideout, and when Batman goes to investigate, things get worse before they get better. Cue Robin, the Boy Wonder, who goes in to investigate. Sadly, while this might sound…

Rock of Ages Review

If you are anything like me, you sometimes wish you could do something to break away from mundane workdays and do something erratic like rolling a giant boulder over your boss. Don’t give me that look. I know you’ve had that “boulder rolling over” fantasy before-don’t deny it!  While there are laws against doing so…

Max Payne 3 Review

It’s been years since Rockstar declared Max Payne’s return to next generation consoles. It almost hard to believe the dark hero has come out of hiding, but Max has made a comeback and he is packing. This new title leaves one with the question, can Max Payne 3 revitalize a hero that mastered “The Matrix”…
