Resurrection

Resurrection
1.5

Of foreign import, Resurrection is an effort to emulate many fighting action-adventures such as Severance or Rune. Unfortunately, there’s a reason you might have heard about Severence and Rune but not Resurrection. It has all of the half-assed mistakes and poor design common with games created by ambitious but amateur upstarts. It’s half adventure and […]

Ark of Time

Ark of Time
3

There have been a great many adventure games based on ancient civilizations. Timelapse, Atlantis: The Lost Tales, SPQR and Riddle of the Sphinx: An Egyptian Adventure were some. Ark of Time follows the same path, but it’s a third-person point and click game and not a pseudo-3D Myst clone. You play as journalist Richard, who […]

Spider-Man

Spider-Man

Does everything a console Spider-Man can. The story of the computer game Spider-Man loosely follows the plot of the film. As the “Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man,” Peter Parker faces the usual assortment of bad guys, from masked thugs and gangsters, to foot soldiers and robots. It’s up to Spider-Man to make the city of New York […]

Evil Twin: Cyprien’s Chronicles

Evil Twin: Cyprien’s Chronicles
3.5

A surreal and strange platformer. For a long time we’ve known Ubisoft for their platforming games, especially their much loved Rayman series. New to the scene is Evil Twin, a new style of action adventure with an edgy, nightmarish twist, not very dissimilar to American McGee’s Alice (take a childlike fairy-tale and throw it into […]

Blair Witch: Volume III – The Elly Kedward Tale
3.5

Blair Witch Volume 3: The Elly Kedward Tale is the final title in a trilogy of games based on legends from The Blair Witch Project. Developed by Ritual Entertainment, the game uses the same Nocturne engine used by Terminal Reality and Human Head Studios for Volumes 1 and 2, respectively. If you have played the […]

Silent Hill: Shattered Memories

Silent Hill: Shattered Memories
4

When Hell freezes over. If you’ve never played Silent Hill: Shattered Memories then you’re definitely in luck. Technically not a PC game, this story-heavy psychological horror can be easily played on your computer using emulators. It’s initially a clunky experience if you don’t own a gamepad, but oh is it so worth it. There are […]

Blair Witch: Volume II – The Legend of Coffin Rock

Blair Witch: Volume II – The Legend of Coffin Rock
3

The second Blair Witch game is very similar to the first one. Blair Witch Volume 2: The Legend of Coffin Rock is the middle title in a trilogy based on The Blair Witch Project mythology. Developed by Human Head Studios and using the old Nocturne engine, it has the same look and feel as Terminal […]

Goblins 3

Goblins 3
4

Goblins 3 is the third game of the Goblins (aka Gobliiins/Gobliins) series of adventure/puzzle games set in a cartoony universe. In the first Goblins game, three goblins were at the player’s disposal, each with their unique set of abilities used to solve various puzzles. In the second game, only two goblins – Fingus and Winkle, […]

Gobliins 2: The Prince Buffoon

Gobliins 2: The Prince Buffoon
4

Gobliins 2: The Prince Buffoon is a game similar in style to the first game. It had multiple protagonists that you could take control of, and every scene in the game is a puzzle in itself. So I expected more of the same with the sequel, and I was not disappointed. The amusing introduction shows […]
