Don't-Miss Game Stories

Spacecom

Spacecom review: A rousing game of strategy between a bunch of triangles

Spacecom strips both the mechanics and graphics of strategy games down to the barest of bones, but keeps a satisfying amount of depth.

dead rising 3 wrestler

Dead Rising 3 (PC) Apocalypse Edition review: The zombie apocalypse, now with silly hats

Slaughtering zombies with whatever's at hand while dressed in ridiculous costumes is fun, even if the PC port of this Xbox One launch title is perfunctory.

Lichdom

Lichdom review: A masterful magic system hobbled by ho-hum gameplay

Lichdom is the first game to really get magic right. Unfortunately it does so at the cost of most everything else.

Shadowgate (2014)

Shadowgate review: This castle still wants to kill you, 25 years later

Shadowgate is a remake of the 1987 classic adventure game of the same name, and it's still just as hard as ever.

metro 2033 redux primary

Metro Redux review: The definitive way to play Metro 2033 and Metro: Last Light

Deep Silver has released "Director's Cut" versions of both Metro games, but should you jump in? Our impressions (and plenty of screenshots) inside.

The Wolf Among Us Episode Two

The Wolf Among Us review: A gritty noir murder mystery, with fairy tales

You'll never look at the Big Bad Wolf and Snow White quite the same way again after playing The Wolf Among Us.

sniper elite 3 camo

Sniper Elite 3 review: Sniper sim sequel aims high, but still falls slightly off target

Sniper Elite 3 improves on its predecessor, but is still more of a bloody gimmick than a game.

Valiant Hearts Primary

Valiant Hearts: The Great War review: A war game to end all war games

Valiant Hearts: The Great War takes on the dark subject matter of World War I, and out comes one of the grimmest, most respectful war games ever made.

Tesla Effect

Tesla Effect: A Tex Murphy Adventure review: You might not want to crack this case

Tex Murphy is back with a blast of 90s nostalgia in this old-school FMV game. Unfortunately this detective's not as good at cracking cases as he is at cracking jokes.

Always Sometimes Monsters

Always Sometimes Monsters review: Always ambitious, sometimes tedious

Always Sometimes Monsters is one of the closest things we've ever had to an existentialist text in game form. But that doesn't mean it's fun.

Amazing Spider-Man 2

Amazing Spider-Man 2 Review: Swinging nowhere

Every year or two they release a new Spider-Man game. Every year or two there's new cause for disappointment.

Watch Dogs (PC)

Watch Dogs review: Meet the new open world game, same as the old open world game (but with hacking)

Watch Dogs is beautiful, but it doesn't do anything to change up the same core game we've seen since Grand Theft Auto III. This game is "next-gen" in the looks department only.

evolve lazarus goliath

Evolve hands-on preview: Welcome to the jungle, we've got guns and game
