Conan Unconquered – Review

Developed by ex-Command & Conquer guys, Conan Unconquered is an RTS where you setup base, build defenses and then fend off waves of enemies. The game is heavily inspired by They Are Billions, and it shows. It has a lot of the same ideas as They Are Billions, and sets them in the Conan universe. While building your base and army, you also set out to find resources and hunt down monsters in order to find upgrades for your base and army. The game can also be played in co-op which makes for a significantly more fun experience, since you can split tasks among co-op buddies. Pros: Nails the Conan aesthetic Has some neat ideas about RTS survival Fun Combat Cons: Needs better task allocation for AI No real story mode Bad pathing No way to separate out military units Score – 7/10 About: B...

Darkwood – Review

Darkwood is set in a fictional universe, in 1987. Strange trees have overgrown everywhere, and within it strange creatures have taken shelter. You need to make your way out of the woods, and along the way you will encounter some of the most horrifying and surreal visual imagery you have ever seen in a video game. Darkwood is played from a top down perspective, and is a survival game. It’s is jam packed with atmosphere and mysteries to discover. Almost everyone is some degree of crazy and there’s danger lurking everywhere. You’ll come across villages where dark rituals are being performed. You’ll encounter folks who will kidnap you for no real reason. You’ll need to somehow survive and escape the woods, and head to mythical Road, though it has been said –...

Ancestors Legacy – Review

Ancestors Legacy is a squad based real-time strategy game, set during the Medieval times. It is some what historically accurate and has campaigns based on real wars. Also, it’s kind of tough and has a lot of intricacies to it, which feels great. You send your men out in squads, which makes the individual combat encounters feel more personal and give you greater control over what each squad does. This makes for some good strategic depth, and requires that you pay more attention. There are four factions to play as – Viking, Anglo-Saxon, German, Slav – and each have their own pros and cons. Some have better archers, other have better foot soldiers, while another might have better horsemen, and so on. The AI is incredible efficient in switching up tactics and putting up a goo...

American Fugitive – Review

If you are a fan of the older top down Grand Theft Auto games, then American Fugitive is definitely up your alley. Even if you’re not, American Fugitive has some really interesting gameplay mechanics, and a fun story that is totally worth engaging in. It also has a lot of random world activities to partake in that makes for a fun over-the-top adventure. You play as Will Riley, who is framed for the murder of his father and sent to prison. You then break out and seek revenge. The plot itself is simple, but the characters you meet along the way and the overall journey makes for a fun romp. Pros: Inspired by classic GTA Fun gameplay Interesting story Destructible environments Cons: Not a lot of challenge No voice acting Score – 8/10 About: Inspired by classic GTA, American Fugitiv...

Pathologic 2 – Review

Pathologic 2 is a weird game and is not for everyone. In fact, it’s probably not for most people, and to be honest, it’s really not for me either. However, there’s something about it that had me curious – You play as one of three doctors, in a town being ravaged by a plague. You have 12 days to create a cure. To do that you need to explore the town, get help and information from the local townsfolk, and figure out what’s going on. There’s a lot of surreal imagery, the world feels alien and bonkers at times, and almost everyone is out for themselves, and can’t be trusted. You have to navigate this messy web of intrigue and self-interest, and make a cure while on the clock. Time is running out. Pros: Interesting story, great characters Some strange v...

Layers of Fear 2 – Review

Layers of Fear 2 uses the strongest elements of interactive story telling to immerse you in a horrifying experience – atmosphere and playing with perspective. Add to that a compelling narrative, and Layers of Fear kept me going even when I wanted to quit out of sheer terror and tension. You start as an actor on board an ocean liner, and are then tasked with exploring the space, discovering the stories of other characters and your own story. What makes Layers of Fear 2’s horror elements different are the ways in which it plays with perspective. You could be walking along a hallway, and turn the camera around and find yourself in a different scene entirely. And all of this is boosted with strange surrealism that can often get under the skin. However, it is also visually stunning....
