Warlock 2 is definitely a step in the right direction – it takes everything that was good about the first game, and refines it a bit, while also leaving the original experience intact. I wish they'd done more to make this seem like a proper sequel, over the "Warlock 1 done right" vibe that I get from it at times, but seeing as in this is a digital only release it's possible their budget wasn't amazing.

8.5 / 10.0 - Age of Wonders III
Apr 8, 2014

Like Warlock 2, this is a game that's trying to be more creative with the fairly rigid 'Civ' template, and combined with the tactical battles and challenge of a hostile world, this is definitely one of the better strategy games to come out over the last year or so. We hope long-term fans of the series are as impressed as we are with this game, and for anyone new to the franchise, we recommend jumping in as soon as you like.

9 / 10.0 - Luftrausers
Mar 18, 2014

Luftrausers is a great a time-waster, a great test of your leet twitch skills, and a game that doesn't assume too much and just lets you enjoy yourself. You'll notice that Devolver have published this game – I sometimes think Hotline Miami could learn a thing or two here.

I rarely question the very existence of a game, but I can't help but project a question mark onto LOD Tactics. It's not a particularly good advert for the brand, or the MMO. It's way too pricey for what it is, and it's got very little replayability.

4 / 10.0 - X Rebirth
Dec 4, 2013

One to come back to in a couple of months, perhaps, and if you're still deadest on picking this up, then try and wait for a sale or something at least. Sorry, Egosoft, but better luck next time.

9 / 10.0 - XCOM: Enemy Within
Nov 11, 2013

Enemy Within makes for an incredible, and fresh, journey as you fight to save the world one more time, and it's definitely worth picking up eventually. We would totally understand though, if you wanted to wait for a steam sale or something.

8.5 / 10.0 - PlanetSide 2
Jan 7, 2013

But really, it costs nothing to give the game a go, so if you’re a PC Gamer who likes shooters and wants to try something truly different, you owe it to yourself to drop onto Auraxis. You won’t regret it.
