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: Shape of the World

by Nazih Fareson June 8, 2018
An independent game made by just one person for 4 years might seem worrisome but when you learn who he is, you’ll understand. Stu Maxell is a Senior VFX Artist at The Coalition, and while working on the Gears of War license, he also focused on his own little pet project known as Shape of […]

Review: The Vanishing of Ethan Carter

by Nazih Fareson February 3, 2018
Composed of developers from People Can Fly (creators of the crazy FPS BulletStorm),The Astronauts’ first game is very different from what they are known for. A calm adventure, without the slightest trace of fighting and at the limit of being a contemplative experience, The Vanishing of Ethan Carter is one great experience now available on […]


Review: Observer

by Mazen Abdallahon September 23, 2017
Layers of Fear was a promising title, but it fell short in a lot of regards for me. For starters, the setting felt way too familiar. A haunted house inhabited by a guy whose sanity is slowly being eroded? It’s been done. However, when I heard about Observer, the new title from the same studio, […]

Review: White Day: A Labyrinth Named School

by Mazen Abdallahon August 31, 2017
Many people have criticized the Resident Evil games lately for veering too much towards action and not doing enough to craft a scary atmosphere. People instead praise newcomers like Amnesia and outlast for reinvigorating the genre. The truth is, however, that there were truly terrifying games coming out of Korea with barely a pistol shot […]

Pushed back at the last moment after the terrible incident that happened in Manchester, Farm 51’s Get Even finally lands for consoles and PC, giving us a one-of-a-kind experience, with a merge between a horror and suspense first person shooter with a elements from other walking-simulators like Dear Ester.

Review: Kholat

by Nazih Fareson July 3, 2017
Want to immerse yourself in a glacial and mysterious survival game in the heart of the Urals? Well you better be ready for Kholat, a simple, beautiful, immersive, but frustrating adventure and repetitive game. Based on the 1959 Dyatlov Pass incident, it tells the story of 9 hikers that were found dead in the Kholat […]

Review: Perception

by Mazen Abdallahon June 30, 2017
Games like Amnesia and Outlast changed the definition of horror so much that now virtually every horror title is set in first-person and paced with a slower, more psychological burn. Consequently, new titles have to do more to stand out. In the case of Perception, the main concept is that your protagonist is a blind […]


Review: Outlast 2

by Nazih Fareson May 7, 2017
Developed by Canadian studios Red Barrels, the first Outlast was an instant hit with gamers, bringing back good ol’ horror and suspense vibe that most others were failing at, without the need of fancy graphics or even technical power, just pure play on your emotions and fears. Three years later, after a decent expansion called Whistleblower, […]
