Review: Forza Horizon 4

by Mazen Abdallahon September 29, 2018
Ah, racing games. I’ve always enjoyed racing games, but I often lose interest after a few hours. Once you’ve taken part in a few dozen races, it kind of starts to feel repetitive. Racing games have tackled this in several ways over the years, and I think the result is a racing market which is […]

Review: State of Decay 2

by Nazih Fareson June 8, 2018
Despite a number of technical flaws, the original State of Decay managed to convince a small crowd of devout survival players with its original vision of a zombie game. Nearly five years after the first release, Undead Labs partnered with Microsoft on making its sequel an exclusivity for the Xbox One and PC, and even if State […]

Review: Sea of Thieves

by Nazih Fareson March 23, 2018
When I think of Rare, what pops into my mind is all the lovely memories I had playing their iconic games like Battletoad, Donkey Kong Country, and the amazing Perfect Dark. Nowadays, Rare is part of Microsoft long list of owned studios, and have been working on numerous Xbox exclusives since the early days of 2002 […]

Review: Forza Motorsport 7

by Nazih Fareson October 4, 2017
In recent years, console racing games have been pretty much divided into two types of loyal fans. You’re either more games like Project Cars which push the boundaries of driving simulation to the extreme; or on the other hands, you prefer games like the Forza Motorsports series, which are aimed at both the purists and […]

Review: Halo Wars 2

by Nazih Fareson February 19, 2017
It’s been eight long years since the Halo series ventured into the ruthless world of “PC-only” RTS with Halo Wars back on the Xbox 360. Halo Wars is probably a title that is on this list of surprising games, and ended up becoming one of my most memorable gaming experiences as well as others, but sadly the […]

Review: Gears of War 4

by Nazih Fareson October 13, 2016
It was 10 years ago that the gaming world were introduced to Gears of War. A game that basically perfected the concept of cover-based shooter, to a point that it pushed gamers around the world to use the word “cover” as a an action that meant “take cover and shoot a bunch of weird monsters with a […]

After being totally amazed by Forza Horizon 2 (and the awesome DLC expansion Storm Island), Playground are back with the aptly name sequel Forza Horizon 3. After discovering Colorado with the original game, followed by Italy with the second episode, we now go down under with the Australian western coast, with a first port on the PC platform as well thanks to […]

Review: ReCore

by Nazih Fareson September 29, 2016
Post-apocalyptic seemed to be a theme fit for gaming, and although this term certainly makes you think of the Fallout series which brilliantly portrays it, other titles such Wasteland, Metro 2033 or The Last of Us have done well in their own ways. What is rare however, is to see a Japanese studio to be […]

Review: Dead Rising Triple Pack

by Nazih Fareson September 22, 2016
After revisiting one of the best of Capcom’s zombie saga, Resident Evil 4 Remastered in glorious HD and 60 fps, It’s time for another licence to get the remaster facelift, one that is more on the goofy side than the scary one: Dead Rising. Celebrating its 10th year anniversary, after the first launch released on Xbox 360 back in […]

Preview: Gears of War 4

by Nazih Fareson April 25, 2016
Do you remember the world where “cover shooter” was at its infancy and that Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty and Ghost Recon were the only example. A world where The Division, Ex: Human Revolution, and many other didn’t exist yet. Behind the beefy aspect of the TPS and pools of blood, Epic Games’ 2006 Gears of War hid in reality […]
