Posted on: 07 Sep 2022

Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered, another Playstation exclusive, has finally arrived on PC. When the game originally launched, it got a lot of positive reactions, so I was quite excited to get my hands on it. I also wanted to see whether its PC version would be polished or not.

Sniper Elite 5 PC Review

Posted on: 24 Jun 2022

I’ve always been a fan of the Sniper Elite franchise since the release of the original game in 2005. I played its second and third parts years ago, and its fourth part about two weeks prior to the release of SE5 (so that I could make an apt comparison between the two). And in a … Continue reading Sniper Elite 5 PC Review

Weird West PC Review

Posted on: 16 Apr 2022

Since I’m a big fan of immersive sim games, I’ve been looking forward to Weird West since its initial announcement. After all, this is the first game by WolfEye, a studio formed by the co-founder of Arkane (who worked on Dishonored and Prey, both of which I absolutely loved). So, here are my thoughts after … Continue reading Weird West PC Review

Dying Light 2: Stay Human PC Review

Posted on: 11 Mar 2022

Dying Light, while not a perfect game, is probably one of my favorite zombie games (I’ve played it multiple times in solo/coop, with around 330 hours of playtime). So it goes without saying that I’ve been looking forward to the sequel. Well, after spending around 85 hours with the game, here are my thoughts.

Kena Bridge of Spirits PC Review

Posted on: 21 Oct 2021

Kena: Bridge of Spirits is the first venture into video games by animation studio turned developer, Ember Lab. In the weeks prior to launch, there were some concerns. We didn’t get many gameplay trailers, and there was a review embargo until launch day. I saw these as worrying signs. However, after playing Kena, I’m happy … Continue reading Kena Bridge of Spirits PC Review

Aliens Fireteam Elite PC Review

Posted on: 15 Sep 2021

The Alien movies are some of my favorite movies of all time (especially Alien and Aliens). Unfortunately, the games based on that franchise have been a mixed bag. Some were good and some were awful. With the announcement of Aliens Fireteam Elite though, I was a bit hopeful. On paper, a horde mode shooter combined … Continue reading Aliens Fireteam Elite PC Review

Chivalry 2 PC Review

Posted on: 27 Jul 2021

Chivalry 2 came out last month on PC and Torn Banner Studios has expanded every aspect of the original game, making it feel much less like an indie title this time around. Additionally, the team has improved the quality of both its visuals and audio, along with its overall scope.

Red Solstice 2: Survivors – PC Review

Posted on: 21 Jun 2021

I only played the original Red Solstice for around 3 hours (just to get an idea of what to expect in the sequel). Red Solstice 2 adds some new systems and depth to the game, and brings a significant visual overhaul. And, after having had a chance to play it for nearly 30 hours, these … Continue reading Red Solstice 2: Survivors – PC Review

Biomutant PC Review

Posted on: 11 Jun 2021

After numerous delays, Biomutant, which has been developed by the indie studio Experiment 101, was finally released on May 25th. There was a lot of hype surrounding the release of this open-world, post-apocalyptic Kung-Fu fable RPG. However, despite being enjoyable at times, Biomutant is unfortunately plagued by a number of issues.

Evil Genius 2 PC Review

I have fond memories of the original Evil Genius that released back in 2004, so it’s no surprise that I was quite excited when I found out that there was a sequel in the works. So, the big question now is whether this sequel is a worthy successor to the original game. Therefore, here are … Continue reading Evil Genius 2 PC Review
