|75 %||Exploding Kittens (2015) - Feb 11, 2018
"[Android] 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 %||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 %||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 %||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 %||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 %||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 %||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."
|80 %||Assassin's Creed (2007) - Jan 14, 2018
"[PS3] While the first game lacks depth in terms of its story, it was an visual masterpiece that showcased the ability of the newly released PS3. While it might feel dated now, and while the gameplay can get a little repetitive, on release it was one of the most immersive games of its time."
|80 %||Sorcery (2012) - Jan 14, 2018
"[PS3] A short game, but a fun one. The gameplay required the PS Move, which was a novel experience and I still count it as exercise. A decent adventure story, but doesn't hold much replay value."
|95 %||Star Wars: Battlefront II (2005) - Jan 13, 2018
"[PS2] With the addition of heroes, Battlefront 2 is everything a sequel should be. The awards system made the hours put in rewarding. The Mos Eisley Assault mode was infuriating. The campaign was a great way to re-live Star Wars from a different point of view. Sometimes I still dig out my worn out copy and play Capture the Flag on the Death Star, reliving my childhood."
