Starpoint Gemini Warlords is a blast from start to finish once you get over its flaws.

A solidly enjoyable title that has balance issues that need patching but otherwise a good investment for fans of the genre.

The improved road and transport infrastructure the content allows for is pretty great but like the other DLC's, the content seems lacking in quantity.

Endless Space 2 once again delivers a top notch turn based 4X sci fi experience.

A game that has plenty of polish but is average underneath.

A solid third entry for the franchise that executes its mechanics very well. Sadly the lack of multiplayer modes at launch is disappointing but a great game that should please many.

Nice content updates that have added some unique issues, overall a solid update that is a little pricey for the meal.

9 / 10.0 - Stellaris: Utopia
Apr 6, 2017

A much-needed expansion that sures up the shallowness of the empire building and management. Utopia adds great depth and new layers of progression that make building your interstellar empire a much more unique and enjoyable experience.

6.5 / 10.0 - Alone With You
Feb 9, 2017

Alone With You is overall a narrative driven game that is severely hampered by its shallow repetitive gameplay, and while the narrative has plenty of depth, the mind-numbing tasks in between story moments become tiresome quickly.

7 / 10.0 - Diluvion
Feb 2, 2017

Developers Arachnid games have created a world the is full of charm that is very vivid and fun, the game certainly has issues with its technical state and the horrendously frustrating camera but still provides an enjoyable experience.

9 / 10.0 - Tales of Berseria
Feb 1, 2017

Tales of Berseria is a strong return to form from Bandai Namco and this return to form has produced one of the best Tales games out there in terms of story and overall quality.

7 / 10.0 - Urban Empire
Jan 20, 2017

Overall, Urban Empire is a solid outing for Kalypso and has a nice blend of city building and political management that players of the genre should find interesting. It has flaws but its new perspective on an old formula is something that can be explored further in the future.

9 / 10.0 - Stars in Shadow
Jan 20, 2017

Stars in Shadow has some limitations that are defined by its indie development, but exceeds preconceptions with the amount of content and its near flawless execution. It's an indie game truly for the 4Xer to revel in.

Sanctus Reach is a well-executed Warhammer 40,000 game that should easily please turn based strategy fans and provides plenty of content for the price.

8 / 10.0 - Rise & Shine
Jan 14, 2017

Regardless of its few flaws, Rise & Shine is a fun, vibrant arcade shooter that should please fans of the genre and remain accessible enough for newcomers. Its light-hearted approach, humour and gunplay make for a enjoyable fast paced experience that is filled with smirks.

7 / 10.0 - Reconquest
Jan 1, 2017

A solid indie real time strategy that is held back by a few flaws but retains a sense of what it wanted to be. This indie command and conquer could be a strong starting place for Stormcube to expand into the genre in the future.

While it still could be saved the technical state of the game is so bad that it cannot be seen for what it does right. Even the good parts of the game are plagued by the negatives and the frequent FPS drops make gameplay vomit inducing.

Realm of the Wood Elves is a solid addition to Total War Warhammer and a much needed one. As the first introduction of the Elves, the DLC does a fantastic job of delivering a great roster of units with unique gameplay mechanics that allow the race to play very differently to that of any other faction.

Like I said, there’s a lot to like about the game but there are problems in equal proportion that stem from the base game. The expansion doesn’t do anything to add to the game or resolve issues. It adds more content for those diehard fans of the game, but fails to do anything that would revitalize the system to attract new players.
