Review: XCOM 2: War of the Chosen

by Nazih Fareson September 21, 2017
Ah XCOM. One of my favorite strategy game after the Civilization series, Firaxis’ hit turn-based title redefined a lot of the genre after the release of XCOM 2 (which we reviewed back in 2016). While most of us were left wanting more, even after the couple of small DLC releases including Anarchy’s Children, Alien Hunters […]

Review: The Escapist 2

by Mazen Abdallahon September 21, 2017
Indie games don’t usually have sequels, considering how much work the studio needs to do to get a title off the ground. When a small indie dev does put out a sequel then, it usually builds on the original and tries to set itself apart. Did The Escapists 2 manage to build on the concept […]

ACE Team, the small Chilean studio has been quite productive over the past few years, and after delivering Zeno Clash and The Deadly Tower of Monsters recently, they are back with a sequel to their first true success: Rock of Ages 2: Bigger and Boulder.

Review: Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle

by Nazih Fareson August 28, 2017
If Assassin’s Creed, Far Cry or the Just Dance franchise are key names that come to mind when we talk about Ubisoft in recent years, the independent developer and publisher has also built up a small reputation for taking risks, especially with new franchises in the turn-based strategy genre such as the amazingly beautiful Child […]

Review: Orcs Must Die! Unchained

by Mazen Abdallahon August 26, 2017
The term F2P has been sullied by years of cheap cash-grabs, but I liked the original Orcs Must Die games, so I decided to give Orcs Must Die! Unchained a chance. The basic premise of Orcs Must Die has always been that you need to mix strategy and action to defend yourself against hordes of […]

Review: Antihero

by Luciano Rahalon July 28, 2017
It is always pleasant to find developers succeed in creating indie games. Antihero is one of those titles that where just done right. What makes this game extremely rare is the unique experience you get with board game mash-ups. Whatever ingredients are needed to create a gem in the world of gaming, these guys have […]

Review: Sword Art Online: Hollow Realization

by Muhammed Al Bukharyon December 19, 2016
For those who the term “Online” triggers them, do not fret, just cast away your worries, the term Online in the Review: Sword Art Online does not refer to mandatory online play, heck, the online functionality is hardly there in the game, it is just a title of a game no more no less. I […]

Review: Tyranny

by Mazen Abdallahon December 2, 2016
Sometimes people have an irrational bias against certain genres, and in my case that bias is against fantasy. Maybe it’s because I think elves look stupid, maybe it’s because I really do believe that a good chunk of mainstream fantasy is just repackaged Tolkein, or maybe it’s because I’m just a giant jerk. Long story […]

Preview: Endless Space 2

by Nazih Fareson October 17, 2016
French based studio Amplitude might be a small company, but over the course of the years, they managed to build a strong reputation among strategy game players, by building a common universe split into three different games: Endless Legend, Dungeon of the Endless and of course Endless Space. I had the chance to get my hands […]
