An island full of riveting mysteries, stuck with some truly awful and jarring combat.
Read full review
Great monsters, stunning locations and a quality mystery makes this one of Supermassive's best.
New World's engaging crafting and faction rivalries are held back by abysmal PvE and a boring world.
Gamedec is half of a good RPG and falls far short of its tantalising premise.
A smart historical 4X that doesn't quite match the inventiveness of the studio's best.
A clever spiritual successor to Civilization full of both novelties and big ideas.
Spacebase Startopia is a missed opportunity to meaningfully build on a classic, but it's still an entertaining management sim.
A smart, hypnotic city builder that won't leave you tearing out your hair.
Empire of Sin's many bugs, balance issues and competing systems undermine what could have been a novel mob management game.
Not quite as novel as its predecessor, but the co-op is still bewitching.
The stuff that made Crusader Kings 2 so enduring has been pushed to the front even more, while some of the bloat that accumulated over the better part of a decade has been chipped away. It's a very sensible sequel.
Refreshing tactical changes and some of the best maps in the series make this an experiment worth checking out.
Desperados 3 turns the Wild West into a brilliant tactical playground that will fill you with lead over and over again.
A mountain of issues gets in the way of the gratuitous monster murder and engaging customisation.
An exceptional RTS let down by a very disappointing remaster.
A polished, wide-ranging update that brings the classic RTS into the modern age.
Huge, inventive and the reason I'm sleep deprived. It's brilliant.
Gathering Storm is an ambitious expansion full of welcome additions, even if it does falter at the end.
Passive AI and a flawed economy ruin what could have been a refreshing 4X experiment.
Lethal League Blaze doesn’t flip over the table, but it’s an extremely confident sequel that improves on just about every part of its predecessor.
