Don't-Miss Game Stories

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

One super-powerful monster and four heavily armed hunters enter an environment. Meet Evolve.

civ beyond earth primary

Hands-on preview: Civilization: Beyond Earth isn't Alpha Centauri 2 (but it totally is)

Civilization: Beyond Earth isn't a true Alpha Centauri sequel for legal reasons, but it totally is.

wolfenstein new order top

Wolfenstein: The New Order review: Nazis, robots, and gloriously dumb fun, oh my

It doesn't play like Wolfenstein, and it barely feels like Wolfenstein, but maybe that's a good thing—this is the best entry the franchise has seen in years.

age of wonders 3 primary

Age of Wonders III review: A horrible first impression hides wonderful strategic gameplay

Age of Wonders is back after a decade hiatus, but the otherwise-excellent game leads with its worst foot forward.

warlock 2 logo

Warlock 2: The Exiled review: A funny, friendly fantasy intro to empire strategy games

Warlock 2 isn't the deepest or the most polished 4X game on the market, but it wins points for its newcomer-friendly interface and humor.

Child of Light review: A whimsical, gorgeous game that's all style, few smiles

Child of Light is all-style-no-substance. But at least it's pretty!

War of the Vikings

War of the Vikings review: Brutish fun, but not quite ready for Valhalla

War of the Vikings can provide a few hours of arcade-like fun, if you don't take it too seriously, but bugs and broken systems hold it back from glory.
