8.5 / 10.0 - Battlefield 4
Nov 16, 2013

With its large scale warfare simulator simultaneously at its most accessible and long-term-fan pleasing level for years, and with CoD: Ghosts looking a little tired, it may just be the year of Battlefield.

3.5 / 10.0 - Ryse: Son of Rome
Jan 10, 2014

Ryse falls short in almost every area in which a game can. Pretty and polished though it may be, it is not an essential title.

5 / 10.0 - CONSORTIUM
Feb 21, 2014

The overall sci-fi themes are interesting and might lead somewhere, but without tighter mechanics and a broader set of outcomes, Consortium just sits as a wannabe Mass Effect that doesn't quite understand the difference between a game of Guess Who? and a video game.

7 / 10.0 - Thief
Mar 10, 2014

Thief is a disappointment. However, laying beyond its shortcomings with movement mechanics, combat and narrative, is a satisfying core of theft and stealth that can, at times, still have you feeling like a master thief. If you're looking for something to waste hours collecting digital trinkets on, and feeling like a total bad ass thief while doing so, then this may be for you. For anyone looking for a story-driven, combat-focused, narrative-based experience you'd be better off looking elsewhere.

Overall Garden Warfare is a game that takes the core strengths of shooters and makes them accessible to all. Its presentation is fantastic and infects the game with charm at every turn. If you're looking for a fun time, PopCap gives it to you in spades. By ratcheting up the fun and lowering the seriousness, Garden Warfare gives its players what everyone wants from a video game: A good time.

9 / 10.0 - Tower of Guns
Apr 4, 2014

Overall, Tower Of Guns is a stunning example of how old-school design is still relevant and fun in today's industry.

8 / 10.0 - Super Motherload
Apr 23, 2014

Super Motherload feels expertly hand-crafted and exudes more love and care than any AAA game could ever hope to. An inspiration to developers everywhere that balance and understanding of pace can carry even the most simple of games. Besides its small flaws Super Motherload is not only an example of a small game done right but, frankly, a joy to play.

I would most certainly suggest Sir, You Are Being Hunted to anyone who's looking for something fun. It doesn't hold up for long due to its minimal story and non-existent class system but what it does, it does well.

9 / 10.0 - The Fall
Jun 28, 2014

The game offers a great story, brilliant voice acting, a notable aesthetic progression and an innovative combat system. And while a little short the only thing left to say is: you should play this game.

7.5 / 10.0 - Sniper Elite III
Jul 15, 2014

The game is a solid experience for anyone who has enjoyed the series up to now. If you've never tried it then this is the one to jump into. If you've never liked it, this won't convince you. It's more of the same but it's polished and unapologetically good fun.
