game review table pc - alchemic jousts
Combining the element mixing fun of Doodle God with a TD sounds great, but the game doesn't make use of all that variety. Basic units are all that's needed to win.
SpyPartyPvPMentalPit-soaking90
spyparty - game review table
Spy Party is a totally unique concept executed with precision and passion. It has the charm and iconic presence of beloved board games like Cluedo but adds a level of excitement and intensity that you just can't get from any other media format. Watching a friend clumsily bug the ambassador in plain sight never gets old. And seeing the sniper's red dot sight settle on the back of your head never gets any less terrifying.
Dead in VinlandStrategySurvivalUnfair53
pc game review table - dead in vinland
Good storytelling hampered by extremely arbitrary RNG. It frustrates as much as it charms.
Runewards: Strategy Card GameCCGFantasyBland65
runewards review pc - deck building
Runewards suffers from the same issues as many of its contemporaries. However, through this "virtue", it ends up being only slightly worse than many of them. Although a perfectly fine game, it won't hold your attention for long.
Farm Manager Simulator 2018ManagementFarmSedate65
pc game review table - farm manager
It's a really good farm simulator with tons of variety, but without external competition that's still kind of a boring experience.
Finding ParadiseNarrativeRPGEnlightening89
finding paradise review pc - dying patient
Beautiful, well-written and relatable, with a soundtrack that beats the emotions out of you like a tear craving monster. Ignore the RPG Maker roots, it's a superb narrative.
Orwell: Ignorance is StrengthChoice & ConsequenceSurveillanceEngrossing89
orwell ignorance is strength review pc - logging in
This is a fantastic addition to the Orwell story. The game makes you think, and not just because finding and choosing important data is a great puzzle, but because of how it relates to the real world. Orwell is going to make you think, something few games can manage. It cannot be recommended highly enough.
Surviving MarsBuilderColonySingular69
pc game reviews table - surviving mars
A good game for those who enjoy the details of intense micromanagement; a bit sparse for those who don't. It's competent but too singular - a stronger story or interaction with your colonists would have done wonders. As is it grows repetitive before the end.
Production LineEfficiencyCarsAddictive81
production line review pc - feature
Clean UI, lots of incentive to constantly optimize and retool, loads of fun if refining things is your idea of fun.
Epic Car FactoryTycoonCarsSlight63
epic car factory review pc - too much employee scores
It's very lightly about cars. More like a cute, little time management game with a car theme.
SYMMETRYSurvivalNarrativeShort50
symmetry review pc - wining the game
Closer to a very promising tutorial level or demo rather than a full game.
Space TyrantStrategy4XShallow68
Space Tyrant Review PC - Whale
Great atmosphere and humour but ultimately too light-weight to sustain for long
Ash of Gods:RedemptionStrategyNarrativeLaborious57
Gorgeous animation and a perfect soundtrack don't come close to compensating for the mountains of horrible text.
My Lovely DaughterNarrativeSimulationUnsettling70
my lovely daughter review pc - header
Deeply unsettling and sad. The emotional weight runs out and turns in micromanagement before the end though.
Kingdom Come DeliveranceRPGOpenworldLush84
kingdom come deliverance review pc fist fight mini game
Not as realistic as it thinks it is, but the world is lush with great mechanics and tons to do.
The Long ReachAdventurePoint & ClickMisguided52
Tries to be edgy but instead just has bad writing, any brilliance is quickly overshadowed by nonsense.
InsidiaStrategyTacticalFun89
insidia review pc - champions
A little finicky but has tons of great tactical decisions and fun hero mechanics for a lot of flexibility.
ExorderStrategyTacticalGeneric59
Meant as an entry into TBS games. Instead it's just boring.
Ghost of a TaleAdventureActionEnchanting85
A grand, beautiful narrative slightly hampered by too much repetitive walking.
CitystateStrategyBuilderUnrealistic60
city state review pc - fawq city
To succeed you have to ignore what you know of the real world in this light political sim.
Dominions 5: Warrios of FaithStrategyGrandSprawling85
dominions 5 review pc - feature
Focused on war but so very detailed with so much to do and optimize.
Where the Water Tastes Like WineAdventureNarrativeLiterary77
Where The Water Tastes Like Wine PC Review - Art
Uses wonderfully written stories as it's game mechanic.
Remothered: Tormented FathersHorrorActionMurky63
Remothered: Tormented Fathers (PC) - rosemary
Good story but murky gameplay leeches the scares out and turns frustrating.
Fear Effect: SednaActionStealthMeh43
Underneath the pretty visuals, Fear Effect: Sedna is not a good game. The included systems all sound intriguing but in practice do little more than aggravate.
The Bonfire: Forsaken LandsStrategyBuilderCasual70
bonfire forsaken lands murder squad
Pretty basic but still engaging because of all the new little bits it doles out over its short playtime.
SubnauticaSurvivalCraftingWonderous83
subnautica pc game review - high tech
Beautiful, well paced and absolutely full of wonder. Story could be better but the emergent stuff is so good it doesn't matter.
Verdant SkiesSimulationFarmingSocial64
width="300" height="169" class="size-medium wp-image-11611" /> Great social, customization and writing but uneven and more social sim than farming sim.
Into the BreachStrategyTacticalBrilliant91
Into The Breach PC Review
Brilliantly redefines typical gaming priorities with huge tactical variety.
Legendary GarryAdventureStrategyCreative82
So many superlatives that it doesn't matter some parts are off. Lovely trip into a creative person's brain.
Hex Commander: Fantasy WarsStrategyTacticalGeneric65
hex commander review pc - feature image
Boring with obnoxious P2W scheme that ruins multiplayer. Could have been decent.
Avernum 3: Ruined WorldsRPGOldschoolLaborious68
Very old school RPG remade without much improvement. Nice story but poor roleplaying and a cludgy UI.
All Walls Must FallStrategyRoguelikeStylish68
all walls must fall - disco
Visually inventive, failed masterpiece. Only the combat is confident. Close.
WartileStrategyTacticalVikingy75
Not enough customization or characterization and the campaign is short. But the combat is great.
TangledeepRoguelikeRPGRefined80
A solid, refined roguelike that does all the basics right. A pleasure to kill things one square at a time.
Future UnfoldingAdventureExplorationBeautiful68
future unfolding review pc - animal encounters
Gorgeous, atmospheric exploration adventure/puzzler that gets repetitive and stale far too quickly.

Decent platformer/puzzler, heavy on the puzzle and with one unique mechanic.

eselmir and the five magical gifts pc review - dead dragon in forest
If you love interesting lore and puzzles, this is a hand-made gem.
Attack of the EarthlingsStrategyTacticsFunny77
Funny, mechanically good but a bit easy and too short. Great for a couple of evenings.
The Mind's EclipseAdventureCYOAStriking90
Brilliantly written, story driven game dealing with heavy sci-fi issues. Great.
WulverbladeActionBeatem upBland65
Wulverblade Review Gameplay Sunset
Very stylish but ultimately generic and brings little new to a very stale genre.
Post Human W.A.R.StrategyTacticalFlexible79

Hidden champion mechanic makes multiplayer great. Campaigns are a bit meh.
IL-2 Sturmovik: Battle of StalingardSimulationFlightAccessible82
Best in the series, accessible, detailed - a blast.
IL-2 Sturmovik: Cliffs of Dover BlitzSimulationFlightConstraining32
Huge letdown from 1946. Difficulty is rigid, campaign is canned. Poor outing.

Satisfyingly tactile digital CCG crack. In a roguelike candy shell.

Fun, colorful mush of TD and action, especially in co-op.
Flame of MemorySurvivalCraftingIntense67

Minimalistic, atmospheric survival game about two soldiers trying to survive until morning. Incredibly hard and frustrating.

Combines TD and bullet hell but misses the things that make either genre fun.

Difficult, RNG heavy board game about escaping North Korea. Makes you think.

TokaidoStrategyBoardgameLovely78
Tokaido Game
Great adaptation of a classic but low online populations mean you need physical friends to enjoy.

pc game reviews
Satisfying in moments but generally uneventful and slightly boring.
This War of Mine: Father's PromiseSurvivalCraftingExploitive70
this war of mine pc review - still good
A short story that doesn't use the game's strengths but still worth it.
TransRoad: USAManagementTruckingTranquil73
A perfectly competent sim with a relaxed pace that models a simple business.
Opus MagnumPuzzlePuzzleSublime80
Tight, polished, open puzzler. Can get fiddly but still sublime.

Flawed and sometimes frustrating but an excellent role playing game.

Ogre PC Review - so much clicking

Warfare OnlineStrategyTacticalOut of business82
Warfare online HQ almost destroyed
Quick 1v1 multiplayer action.Not clicky or fast, quite tactical. Loved it.

What the Score Means

90-100: Everyone should buy this game. Young, old, gamer or noob. A game so good it’s worth any investment of time to enjoy. Genre, subject and cost do not matter.

80-89: A superb example of its genre. Anyone with even a passing interest should get it, as should anyone wanting to try a new genre for the first time.

70-79: Solid genre game. Fans of the topic should buy, others can find better examples to start with.

60-69: Decent journeyman game. Has enough positive to waste time with if nothing better is available. Unlikely to draw in non-fans.

50-59: Playable but deficient experience or execution. Might have one or two ideas/mechanics worth exploring but you’ll have to slog through a lot of unfun to get there. For the connoisseurs and the truly bored.

30-49: Just a bad but functional game. Move along.

< 29: Shit.
