Review: Katamari Damacy REROLL

by Mazen Abdallahon December 13, 2018
Lots of games claim to have a cult following, but it doesn’t get more cult than Katamari Damacy. Initially released on the PS2, the colorful arcade title put players in control of a little green fellow who had to push a Katamari – a spherical object – around and roll all sorts of objects into […]

Review: Battlefield V

by Mazen Abdallahon November 29, 2018
The Battlefield series is by far one my favourite game series ever. That’s because it manages to really deliver on its name. The game tosses you into probably the closest you’ll ever get to an actual battlefield without enlisting. Its massive 64-player skirmishes are chaotic and messy, and its class system allows you to contribute […]

Review: Darksiders III

by Mazen Abdallahon November 23, 2018
You know, there are tons of games in which you try and survive in the apocalypse. Usually, you’re just an everyday person caught up in a bad situation trying to survive the end times. But in a few games, you get to play as the people who are actually behind the end times; I’m speaking […]

Review: HITMAN 2

by Mazen Abdallahon November 22, 2018
The HITMAN games are some of my favourites ever, and I think the reason is that they feature such creative ways of killing people. While other games focus on more vanilla means of murder like guns and swords, the HITMAN games want you to be a little smarter. HITMAN games have always offered elaborate murder […]

Review: Overkill’s The Walking Dead

by Mazen Abdallahon November 12, 2018
Licensed games are a mixed bag. Usually, gamers regard them with scorn and derision. That’s because most licensed games are just generic titles that are put out using a particular show, movie, or book as a backdrop to sell more copies. However, there is a second, albeit smaller category. The licensed games that create a […]

Review: Party Hard 2

by Mazen Abdallahon November 7, 2018
Often, the objective of a game is to have as much fun as possible. GTA, Skyrim, Fallout, these games are all about letting you do all manner of crazy sandbox stuff. However, Party Hard was a game that was about the total opposite, namely stopping someone’s fun. The premise was fairly simple: it’s 3 AM […]

Review: Diablo III: Eternal Collection

by Mazen Abdallahon October 31, 2018
Diablo is an absolute classic and one of the biggest names in gaming, and I think one of the reasons it’s so well-regarded is the fact that it’s always been a trailblazer in gaming. The first two games were landmark titles in the dungeon crawler genre, and they laid down many of the foundations in […]

Review: At Sundown

by Mazen Abdallahon October 28, 2018
Lately, it feels like I’ve been playing a lot of online multiplayer, so when I saw ‘At Sundown’ I got pretty excited. I’ve got a soft spot for local multiplayer games because I believe there really is a different energy to them that brings out everyone’s most competitive side. Local multiplayer games are also expected […]

Review: Timespinner

by Mazen Abdallahon October 18, 2018
Ah, time travel. The easiest way to make a simple story much more complicated than it needs to be. All wibbly wobbly and timey and wimey, to quote Doctor Who. Of course, time travel isn’t just great for storytelling; time travel is a classic game mechanic, and lots of games have had fun by messing […]

Review: Frozen Synapse 2

by Mazen Abdallahon October 5, 2018
Frozen Synapse was a title that was pretty successful in its right, but I feel flew under the radar for a lot of people. That’s a damn shame, too, because it was a great title. The idea was that you’d guide squads of soldiers though tactical situations and give them sets of instructions. After giving […]
