PCWorld's Reviews

This ultra-hard stealth game kind of feels like it came out ten years ago, but in a good way.

Crytek brings its Xbox One launch exclusive over to the PC and it's not great. But PC graphics enthusiasts should probably check it out anyway.

The Vanishing of Ethan Carter is all about the journey, and the journey here is spectacular both visually and narratively. This game is something special.

CounterSpy could use more finesse with its controls, however: I had occasional inputs register incorrectly, which adds a frustrating layer of clumsiness. Luckily, it's not enough of an issue to take the shine off of this smart spy affair, which can pump some tense, tactical action into your day's more mundane moments.

I have no qualms about saying this is one of the best-written, best-voiced, and best-structured adventure series in all of gaming, and from this initial chapter I expect the same quality from Dreamfall: Chapters. If you haven't played The Longest Journey and Dreamfall: The Longest Journey, maybe check them out. And if you have? Well, there's still four chapters to go, but as far as I can tell this is the sequel you've been awaiting for seven years.

Alien: Isolation has its issues, but by-and-large it's the best stealth game of the year and a stunning tribute to Ridley Scott's universe.

Randal's Monday has a decent story, but playing through this point-and-click isn't worth the effort—illogical puzzles abound.

Never Alone is a fairly ho-hum platformer with an intriguing hook—the culture of the Alaskan native Inupiat people.

Defense Grid proves it's still the best tower defense series on the market, but that's mainly because everyone else stopped trying.

Tony Hawk who? This skateboarding game turns America's favorite extreme sport into a puzzler, with excellent results.

The Talos Principle's philosophical puzzling is the closest anyone's ever come to recapturing what made Portal special.
