Leisure Suit Larry Reloaded Review (PC)

We looked at Leisure Suit Larry Reloaded in a preview two weeks ago, and with the final game now available for purchase it is time see how it stacks up against other fellow adventure games 26 years after the original Larry was released.

Company of Heroes 2 Review (PC)

There are several genres that are inexoribly linked to PC gaming, and Real Time Strategy is one of them. It’s a genre that started on home computers in the late 80s with Populous, and more or less reached maturity in the mid-90s with Warcraft, Dune 2 and Command & Conquer. Company of Heroes could arguably be considered the last hugely succesful new franchise that uses this formula, and now that 2006 classic has a true sequel with Company of Heroes 2.

A few months later, ‘something different’ turned out to be a new fighting game franchishe in the DC Comics universe.

With Injustice coming out this week, we checked out the game for answers… Continue reading “Injustice: Gods Among Us Review (X360)”

Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2 Review (PC)

When City Interactive announced Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2, I couldn’t help but remember that the original game received mediocre reviews at best. When I learned that the sequel would feature the CryEngine 3, I became interested in what City could do with the Sniper concept. The lush visuals that Crytek has shown us in their own games seem like a perfect match for the sniper genre, so we took a look at Ghost Warrior 2 when it came out earlier this week.
