In truth I've laboured too long on the negatives. Shadows: Awakening is a brilliantly viable alternative to Diablo with plenty of ideas that hold up in their own right. Add in alternative endings and LOADS of content and you'll be there for hours.
The fact I'm having to go back to Fahrenheit on the Xbox as a reference point for State of Mind shows what an under-represented category the story driven adventure genre has become. I hope that changes in the coming years because State of Mind tells a really interesting tale with teriffically multi-dimensional characters only let down by some unwillingness to give the player control.
There's an evening or two's entertainment to be had with State of Anarchy. There's just enough to think about in each stage to keep the brain engaged and at the price point (£6.39/ $7.99) I wouldn't begrudge you a purchase for a bit of mindless fun.
Frost is a superbly thought out deck-building strategy game. With continued support in the form of additional scenarios or even new rule sets further down the line, there is the potential for a classic in the vein of Carcassone here. If you have even a passing interest in board game type experiences developed into video games, give Frost a try.
My main gripe with Extinction is its price point. £50 for a title that has all the hall marks of a game developed under a tighter budget seems steep. That said, there is plenty to enjoy here and I’d find it hard not to recommend if you can find a copy at half the price a few months down the line.
