Cyberpunk 2077 has some seriously major technical problems, but it's worth putting up with them to experience a fantastically down-to-earth story that's accompanied by solid shooting and great music.

3 / 10 - Empire of Sin
Dec 10, 2020

Empire of Sin has too many bugs and too many balancing issues to make it worth putting up with its insanely uninspired combat and lacklustre story.

Mafia: Definitive Edition maintains its source material's amazing story, adds some solid gameplay and brings the graphics into the 21st century for an overall experience that's one of the few remakes that is genuinely worth a purchase.

6 / 10 - Serious Sam 4
Sep 30, 2020

Serious Sam 4's core shooting is as fun as can be, and the writing is on par with Hollywood's best action flicks, but everything else in the game is too dated for the overall experience to be truly enjoyable.
