If you're a fan of the series and you're not short of money, then Beyond Earth is worth getting. Otherwise, wait for a sale or buy Sid Meier's Alpha Centauri instead.
Despite my mixed feelings, I still think Endless Legend is worth a buy, but if you're strapped for cash, you might be better off just waiting for Civilization: Beyond Earth.
I've tried to temper my enthusiasm for The Vanishing of Ethan Carter, but it's difficult to remain objective when writing about something you've genuinely enjoyed. If you hate puzzles, you won't like this game. If you only want fast-paced, explosive action then you won't like this game. If you want nothing but to be scared senseless, then you probably won't like this game. If any of the above apply then you really should look elsewhere, but if you want a well-crafted (and at times totally insane) adventure through a twisted, but beautiful world that's driven by a compelling plot then The Vanishing of Ethan Carter is very much your kind of game. It's on steam now, at only £14.99.
Overall: if you're a fan of the 'Souls' games and you're wondering what to do before FromSoftware's next offering, then Lords of the Fallen is, despite its flaws, definitely worth a go.
The sleepy, small-town atmosphere, dream-like art design and sublime music, combined with a cast of both likeable and pleasingly hateful characters, a compelling story and interesting game mechanics has left me on the edge of my seat waiting for the next episode.
Despite the minor faults and irritating PC controls, Inquisition is still a pretty spectacular game. Definitely worth getting
