|95 91%||Uncharted 4: A Thief's End (2016) - Feb 10, 2019
"[PS4] in Uncharted 4, the cinematics might be the same length as the gameplay, but I didn’t mind a single bit. I was constantly immersed, as was anyone who entered the room and ended up watching the story unfold. It's practically a playable movie, and I loved it. There's a understated scene where Nathan & Elena drive from one side of the island to the other, with a mellow score and a setting sun; a calm before the storm that encapsulates what is great about this game."
|90 77%||Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception (2011) - Feb 10, 2019
"[PS4] Uncharted 3 is weirder but wonderful. There are more plot twists and turns, the characters are more interesting, and the callbacks actually feel rewarding. "
|83 43%||Uncharted: Drake's Fortune (2007) - Feb 10, 2019
"[PS4] Uncharted is a solid entry in a franchise that never really falters. The gameplay might be a little repetitive, but it’s still engaging enough to be enjoyable."
|75 10%||Exploding Kittens (2015) - Feb 11, 2018
"[Android] [Card] Playing the occasional round against strangers over the Internet is a fun way to spend 7 minutes. Mostly luck, little bit of skill; it's basically UNO with cats."
|85 56%||Rise of Nations (2003) - Jan 23, 2018
"[PC] Rise of Nations takes a more detail-oriented approach to the RTS genre. With a large array of civilisations to choose from, each with their own specialities; more research upgrades and resources; and a Risk style campaign to conquer the world. Probably my best experiences with an RTS, and one of my last. It was always fun to take a fleet of helicopters to square of against medieval knights, but in the end, nothing was more fun than nuking an enemy city."
|85 56%||Uncharted 2: Among Thieves (2009) - Jan 16, 2018
"[PS4] Uncharted 2 is as much a cinematic experience as it is a playable one through its use of flashbacks, a chopped narrative. The stereotypical Russian baddie is a bit of a let down, especially with the final encounter; but the game on the whole is a fun romp with witty banter and Claudia Black. "
|80 27%||Catan (1995) - Jan 16, 2018
"Simple enough that you can pick up the rules as you play, and complex enough that it remains fun game after game. Like any board game it depends on the group you are playing with, but the mechanics are fair and it's a good way to pass an hour."
|90 77%||Star Wars: The Old Republic (2011) - Jan 15, 2018
"[PC] Despite changing the gameplay mechanics each time a massive update came. (I got to v3), SWTOR's strength is the engaging storylines it present across its 8 classes, though some are better than others (Imperial Agent). The graphics are great, there's only a limited need to carry out group missions with strangers, and it's a convincing return to Star Wars' Old Republic since KOTOR. For a F2P game, it's pretty great."
|85 56%||Neverwinter Nights (2002) - Jan 15, 2018
"[PC] A long game but a good one. The character creation tool is half the fun, following the 3rd edition DnD rules, with lots of classes, races, and abilities to choose from. The Aurora Toolset is also a great way to learn about conditional programming, and an ingenious way to start the game with a maxed level character."
|99 97%||Assassin's Creed II (2009) - Jan 14, 2018
"[PS3] A great sequel, and perhaps one of my all time favourite gaming experiences. The storyline is on point, keeping you engaged throughout while setting up a greater mystery. Jasper Kyd's soundtrack is amazing, narrating your time spent in ancient Italy. Everything great about the first game is brought into this one, and built upon, adding new content and gameplay. Definitely the best game in the series."
