Day Z Review

Day Z Review

The main concept, for those who haven't heard of Day Z, is this. You spawn in a random location and need to gather gear in order to survive the constant onslaught of players and zombies trying to kill you. That's it. However when you die, you lose all of the gear you collected. This means you value your life very much in game and that's where the fun comes in. Heated negotiations with other player...

DOTA 2 Review

DOTA 2 Community Page For those who aren’t aware, DOTA was originally a mod for Starcraft but gained most popularity as a mod for Warcraft 3. So Valve swooped in and offered the makers of DOTA a shot at the big time. The game that came out of this is of course the ever creatively named DOTA 2. The DOTA series is widely credited with the creation of the very popular MOBA genre of gaming and the gam...

Chucks Challenge 3D Review

Chucks Challenge 3D Review

The gameplay in Chucks Challenge 3D is as a whole is pretty good. I found some of the puzzles legitimately challenging, leaving me to sit there and ponder over the possible solutions. To the games credit, the puzzles are really good. The bulk of the puzzles revolve around pushing blocks around, which  on paper sounds boring and repetitive but Chucks Challenge 3D mixes it up well. The main challeng...

Chivalry: Deadliest Warrior Review

Chivalry: Deadliest Warrior Review

Since I played the original Chivalry game I've been curious to see what Torn Banner Studios would release next. I was excited when I saw that Chivalry: Deadliest Warrior was on the way. The idea of  finally being able to settle the age old dispute of pirates vs ninjas was quite appealing, instead of just playing as the classes from Medieval Warfare. By far the best way to revitalise a game franchi...

Gravi Review

Gravi Review

I think that puzzle games have advanced the most over the last few years. From simple games like Tetris to Portal, puzzle games have seen huge advancements. Sure shooters have gotten more advanced, but whole new forms of puzzle games have been created. Ones that incorporate physics and others that bend reality. Gravi is an example of a physics puzzle game, or more accurately a gravity puzzle game....

Solstice Arena Review

Solstice Arena Review

The main point of difference that Zynga went for with Solstice Arena, is that it's the only MOBA on mobile and the games are incredibly quick. 10 - 20 mins are the game lengths on average which suits the mobile platform as well as the PC platform.  I liked the short length as I got some of the same satisfaction from finishing a LoL game without the 30 minute wait. However that being said, the long...

Guns of Icarus Review

Guns of Icarus Online has an interesting back-story to its development. Muse Games, the developers of Guns of Icarus Online were originally designing the game for another company. However it became clear to Muse that this company did not care for the creative vision Muse had for the game, so the game quickly began being funded out of Muse's own money. Finally the game was released in 2012 and has ...

Alien Rage Review

Alien Rage Review

Alien Rage Community Page The gameplay in Alien Rage is actually quite fun. I enjoyed the run and gun style of gameplay and was the biggest factor that kept me coming back. However this run and gun feel is only really present on the lowest difficulty. I began the game on the middle difficulty setting and found I was spending most of my time playing in cover. I caved and switched the difficulty to ...
