8 / 10.0 - Overwatch 2
Dec 29, 1999

The switch from Overwatch 2 to 5x5 format brings new life to what was once the sharpest shooting game on the market. Now all he has to do is regain all the glory of the past, if he gets the right attention from Blizzard.

8.7 / 10.0 - Psychonauts
Apr 19, 2005

The first half of this game is easily one of the most enjoyable I've had in the past year. But as is the case with many humorous games, the laughs begin to fade in the home stretch and in the end Psychonauts started to wear on me.

8 / 10.0 - RUSH
Dec 22, 2010

Puzzle fans will definitely want to give Rush a download. It's a fun mix of Lemmings and Chu Chu Rocket, and sports a clean, attractive art style.

7.5 / 10.0 - World of Tanks
Jul 22, 2011

World of Tanks might have a silly name, but it does something impressive. It manages to straddle pure tank simulation and shooter action to produce something that, despite being flawed, remains genuinely fun.

9 / 10.0 - Bastion
Aug 22, 2011

When I beat Bastion for the first time, I reloaded my save and played through for the second ending. When that was done, I started my new game plus. I'm not the repeat type of gamer, but Bastion's leveling, weapon upgrades, and difficulty tweaks are just too gosh-darn addictive. The story could've been better, but it doesn't matter. This game is amazing and you owe it to yourself to download it.

8 / 10.0 - Costume Quest
Nov 1, 2011

Creativity-infused cartoon combat blends perfectly with trick-or-treating nostalgia to give this humorous little download some tremendous pull. Costume Quest’s bold personality and utter charm mostly makes up for its more repetitive moments, and when you throw in the re-tooled save system and free DLC, the PC version is an alluring package. If your tastes lean more towards lighthearted fare instead of overt gore splatter, you’d be hard-pressed to find a better pick than this endearing Halloween-themed RPG.

If you had low expectations for this one, let them be lifted -- this is a surprising hit of a game. Namco's still got room to improve here, and hopefully a future sequel will add a greater wealth of single-player missions and some multiplayer modes to this foundation. But Ace Combat: Assault Horizon Legacy is truly impressive just as it is, and it deserves the attention of any Nintendo fans who've either always been curious about this series or just love flying through the sky to blow stuff up.

6.5 / 10.0 - MacGuffin's Curse
May 3, 2012

As far as puzzle games go, MacGuffin's Curse is certainly challenging enough, but does rely heavily on a couple of core mechanics to the point that it feels repetitive after a while. On the plus side, all the “flavor” stuff thrown in -- story, characters, mini-games, etc. -- goes a long way to keeping you interested in seeing what happens next. It's a lengthy game, but it's best played in short bursts – trying to persevere through level after level in one sitting will leave you sick and tired in short order.

A top-tier tactics game that will probably share the long-tailed legacy of its predecessors.

Torchlight II, Runic Games' latest kill sandbox, is one of the best action-RPGs around.

9.4 / 10.0 - Okami HD
Oct 30, 2012

Okami is one of the finest games to come out of Japan in the last decade, and Okami HD is absolutely the best way to experience this epic adventure. Its re-release is rather timely too, given Japanese game publishers are currently preoccupied with creating games that will appeal in the West. Okami, in contrast, represents a pure, resolutely Japanese vision, and is all the more appealing for it.

Deadly Device is a solid adventure mystery, but may not be the best entry point in the series for new players.

6.8 / 10.0 - Primordia
Jan 11, 2013

Cool art and charming robotic banter can't quite save Primordia from obtuse puzzles and a story that doesn't click.

Fez is a brilliant, beautiful platformer. Play it immediately.

8 / 10.0 - Anomaly 2
May 15, 2013

Anomaly 2's campaign isn't especially original, but its multiplayer provides a fresh take on tower defense gameplay.

9.4 / 10.0 - Dota 2
Jul 24, 2013

Dota 2 is an ocean-deep pool of rewarding nuance and strategy, but it will drown newcomers.

A wildly inventive 2D Roguelike with a 30-second gameplay loop that lasts for 20 odd hours.

Spartan Assault features flashes of frantic Halo brilliance, but skip the touch controls. Play with mouse + keyboard!

DuckTales isn't as good as you remember, but Remastered is a fairly faithful version of Capcom's classic NES game.
