9.0 Submerged

 

Occasionally games will take a break from the typical structures of crafting, battling, and leveling, games to present a softer, more idealistic approach to gameplay.

6.5 The Charnel House Trilogy

 

Death, loss, fear, and hatred are all emotions that surround the dark and unforgiving world portrayed in The Charnel House Trilogy. A 2D point and click adventure with a retro look, Charnel House has the charm of a small developer’s game, but the ambition of something much larger.

Xanadu is an abandoned space ship littered with blood trails, cryptic audio logs, murderous robots, and intense mystery surrounding the events that have taken place there.

After a short and unexpected delay, the second book of the game Dreamfall Chapters: The Longest Journey was released this March.

8.5 Book of Unwritten Tales 2

 

I've just recently begun getting back into the point and click adventure game genre. I plowed through King's Quest 5, 6, and 7, and the Monkey Island series. I was about to jump into another franchise when I saw a tweet from Evolve PR our of BC, Canada. It read along the lines of: "If you are not playing The Book of Unwritten Tales 2 you should be." So I did. If you have fond memories of 90s point and click ...

5.5 Cities XXL

 

Simulation city-building games have been popular ever since the release of the highly acclaimed and somewhat revolutionary Sim City franchise began. While games that allow the player to control locations or people have always had a niche, Sim City created the ability to not just control one small sub-section of a society, like a theme park or a mall, but allowed players to control an entire city. With the player ...

 

7.0 Overture

 

Recently action-adventure rogue-like games have made a huge comeback. With notable successes recently such as The Binding of Isaac and Nuclear Throne, this game-type is seeing resurgence. The most recent in the line is Overture. Allowing the player to control a 16-bit hero and navigate them through randomly generated dungeons across the world, Overture is fun, fast-paced, and non-stop action.

 

9.0 JumpJet Rex

 

Every once in a while, a game developer and creator is not a man in a business suit thinking of what unnecessary spin-off or disappointing sequel game will bring in the big bucks. Sometimes it is just a group of young men who grew up on video games, play them every day, and have always dreamed of the opportunity to make them. One of Steam’s newest early access games is the birth child of just that kind of group ...

 

9.0 Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons

Dreamfall: The Longest Journeyleft players facing terrible ...

 

8.0 Chuck’s Challenge 3D

 

Ever since mobile gaming began to be a big thing, we have been swamped in puzzle game after puzzle game. Many are great, most are bad, but almost all of them find a home primarily on mobile devices. Not so with Chuck's Challenge 3D, at least not completely. Although reviewed on Steam, Chuck's Challenge 3D is available on almost all mobile platforms as well, and it is worth your time and money to own it a few times.

 

8.5 Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor

 

The massive and immersive world of J.R.R. Tolkiens Middle-earth series has spawned successful movie series, music pieces, toys, and several video games as well.

5.0 Global Outbreak Doomsday Edition

 

Global Outbreak Doomsday Edition is another mobile port that was free for phones and tablets, but now you can pay real money for the privilege of having it on your PC. At least it’s much better than most mobile games that find their way to Steam.

 

7.0 Pure Pool

 

Pool has been a regular target for developers over the years. It's definitely a simple idea to pull of, and it's always popular, but there are many games out there that capture the sport itself, but not the atmosphere surrounding it. Pure Pool tries to go beyond what you might expect.

 

5.5 Victory at Sea

 

Naval combat is sorely underdone in video games for a multitude of reasons. The sea isn't perhaps the most engaging of environments, due in no small part to the over-abundance of blue, and actually having your boats interact with it realistically is a challenge. Does 'Victory At Sea' bring enough to the table to provide us the spectacle and awe that naval combat deserves?

 

8.5 DC Universe Online

 

There are a lot of free to play MMORPG's out there, some require you to pay just to do some mindless things and others have dull combat that rely on hot keys and very precise statistics. I was never able to get into these types of games, they focused to much on knowing everything about the game. Luckily Sony Online Entertainment had made a free-to-play MMORPG that had interesting combat and no impossible to ...

 

5.5 Frontline: Road to Moscow

 

Dozens of overpriced mobile ports get released on Steam every month. Frontline: Road to Moscow is no different. The game was originally available on the Appstore in July before being ported to PC.

8.5 The Wolf Among Us Episode 5: Cry ...

 

The finale for Telltale’s noir-inspired game series The Wolf Among Us is a marked improvement over its predecessor, In Sheep’s Clothing. This 90-minute episode is viciously paced, offering well-written and thought provoking dialogue choices, with some of the best fight sequences in the series thus far. There’s also a welcome, but surprising sense of ambiguity in Cry Wolf that further cements The Wolf Among Us as ...
