7.5 / 10.0 - Dread Templar
Jan 28, 2023

There have been quite a few boomer shooters in these last few years and to be honest, Dread Templar is not the best of them, falling just a tiny bit short of the likes of Dusk, Amid Evil or Prodeus, but it's still funny and entertaining, especially if you're looking for a classic FPS experience.

5.7 / 10.0 - Crossfire: Legion
Dec 8, 2022

Crossfire: Legion may not be a terrible game but it's not a good one either. Its single-player campaign is entirely forgettable, the three factions are about as generic as they come and gameplay wise it's a bit basic, lacking the depth of other (better) strategy games. Blackbird Interactive has shown better in the past but sadly they didn't seem to be as inspired with this project.

Dec 5, 2022

A rich, complex and ultimately satisfying grand strategy game, one that will keep you company for dozens upon dozens of hours while you lead your favourite medieval civilization towards victory.

As a debut title from a new indie team, it's difficult to imagine how things could have gone better: Gray Color Games has indeed managed to create a charming and well-crafted investigative adventure that every wannabe detective should really consider playing.

7.5 / 10.0 - Evil West
Nov 21, 2022

Evil West is not the most ambitious game of the year, but can still provide some fun thanks to its solid action gameplay and its many satisfying combat encounters with all sorts of vampires and monsters.

7.5 / 10.0 - Floodland
Nov 14, 2022

Floodland is an intriguing city-builder that manages to be intuitive and also quite complex in its game systems, but sadly it's also filled with many technical hiccups that can slow down (and potentially halt) your progress. The foundation is solid and there is a good game beneath it all, but the game will probably need a couple of patches to really shine.

8.3 / 10.0 - Prodeus
Sep 30, 2022

Almost two years in early access were apparently enough to rough out the edges and Prodeus 1.0 is an intense, fun and satisfying first person shooter.

6 / 10.0 - Diablo Immortal
Jun 27, 2022

Diablo Immortal is a simplified and more accessible version of the series that can still provide hours of mindless fun and entertainment. Sadly, the games suffers in the long run because of all the tedious grinding and the greedy monetization system, making a game experience that starts as very enjoyable much less so as time goes on.

8 / 10.0 - Citizen Sleeper
May 21, 2022

Despite its simple gameplay, Citizen Sleeper still captivates players thanks to its intriguing cyberpunk story and its rich and detailed setting, full of history, personality and charm.

6.8 / 10.0 - Dolmen
May 19, 2022

Dolmen surely has its flaws and is nowhere the quality displayed by From Software in its Souls series, but if you enjoy that formula you can still have some fun hacking and slashing through hordes of enemies.

7 / 10.0 - Eternal Threads
May 18, 2022

Eternal Threads is not the most original or ambitious game, but it still manages to craft an interesting story about time travels and six ordinary characters struggling with their lives.

May 6, 2022

A solid tactical rpg that offers many satisfying turn-based combats and a fascinating dark fantasy re-imagining of the Arthurian myth.

Lost Valley offers Tactical Adventures the chance to experiment on a few new systems and ideas, some of them are fine, others need more refinement, but if you wanted more of Solasta you'll find that the new DLC definitely delivers on that front.

8.6 / 10.0 - Weird West
Mar 31, 2022

Weird West isn't perfect but it's definitely a worthy successor to games like Dishonored and Prey and a great debut title from new team Wolfeye Studios.

7.3 / 10.0 - ELEX II
Feb 28, 2022

Elex II is not without its flaws and some of them can sometimes be quite jarring, but underneath them all is a nice action RPG that gets more than a few things right and that can provide many, many hours of entertainment.

4.5 / 10.0 - The Waylanders
Feb 1, 2022

The Waylanders tries to follow on BioWare's footsteps but Gato Studio's game lacks all the qualities that made Dragon Age: Origins stands out.

8.2 / 10.0 - Expeditions: Rome
Jan 18, 2022

Expeditions: Rome is the best title in the series yet, with an intriguing storyline that can be partially influnced by players choices and a deeply satistying combat system in which players can test their tactical prowess.

8.6 / 10.0 - Age of Empires IV
Oct 25, 2021

Age of Empires IV won't shake the videogame world as much as its famed predecessors once did, but it's still a quality production from Relic Entertainment and a worthy addition to a legendary series of strategy games.

7.7 / 10.0 - Encased
Sep 6, 2021

It doesn't quite manage to reach Fallout's brilliance and quality, but Encased is still a fun experience, capable of providing lots of meaningful possibilities and an interesting new post-apocalyptic world to explore.
