CORRUPTION 2029 Review

Despite a dry, predictable narrative, Corruption 2029 delivers a mechanically engaging, stealth tactical experience.

Total War: Three Kingdoms: Mandate of Heaven Review

Ultimately, Mandate of Heaven is more Total War goodness. If you enjoyed the base game, the added elements provided in this DLC are enough reason to pick it up and play again.

Warcraft III: Reforged Review

More of a remaster than a reforge, this remains a quality RTS title, but is a letdown for long-time fans with its lack of new content and Blizzard’s creativity-stifling ownership of custom maps.

Praetorians - HD Remaster Review

The campaigns provide plenty of content, but repetition and micromanagement hinder the fun by making you feel like you’re fighting the same strategies every battle.

Warhammer Underworlds: Online Preview

Overall, the audience of this title seems a little narrow and the purpose a little inaccessible to new players.

Crying Suns Review

An FTL-inspired rogue-lite, Crying Suns falls short of what made that game fun and exciting by being repetitive and boring.

Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Breakpoint Review

Despite the occasionally lonely world and lacking interactivity at times, the rewarding and creative ways to complete missions make this FPS title a blast to play. 

TINY METAL: FULL METAL RUMBLE Review

Another fantastic spiritual successor to the beloved Advance Wars and a noticeable improvement from its previous title, Tiny Metal: Full Metal Rumble is a must buy if you’re looking for something to scratch that turn-based tactical strategy itch. 

Steel Division 2 Review

Eugen Systems’s Steel Division 2 is an incredibly detailed and immersive RTS game, but its lacking content and virtually non-existent accessibility makes this a hard sell for anyone outside of Eugen’s fanbase.

Expansion - Hearts of Iron IV: Man the Guns Review

Man the Guns is a solid addition to the Hearts of Iron IV DLC line, offering excellent reworks and new components to core aspects.

ATOM RPG: Post-apocalyptic indie game Review

In its desire to stick to the original Fallout RPGs, ATOM RPG disregards the lessons CRPGs have learned in the intervening years. Fallen short of both its predecessors and contemporaries in the genre, ATOM RPG .

Element: Space Early Access Review

Element: Space, developed by Sixth Vowel and published by Inca Games, is a turn-based strategy RPG that sees you fill the shoes of Captain Christopher Pietham, tactician and leader. You will guide Captain Chris through the galaxy on a mission to stop the evil organization Tempest who are bent on inciting war between the many factions in the galaxy despite it being on the verge of peace. Many challenges await on your path to peace, and only Captain Pietham and his crew will be able to walk it.

Battlefleet Gothic: Armada 2 Preview

Laser fire, boarding torpedos, and gigantic ships fill the void of space. Commanders shall organize, deploy fleets, and engage enemy armadas in epic real-time conflicts, all the while managing skills that each vessel can deploy against its enemies. Welcome to the 41st millenium in Battlefleet Gothic: Armada 2.

Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden Review

Taking clear inspiration from games like XCOM, Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden expands upon the formula by mixing up how you think about stealth, skill trees, and storylines, truly making it a unique and refreshing entry into the turn-based strategy genre.

Total War: WARHAMMER II - Curse of the Vampire Coast Review

From the seas comes the undead hordes of the Vampire Coast. Prepare yourself to either resist or bring the terrors of the oceans ashore as the sea-faring zombie pirates. From shambling musket-wielding warriors to shipwrecks reanimated into towering artillery pieces, you are sure to get your fix of piracy and destruction.

Pig Eat Ball Review

This nostalgic, Pac-man-esque arcade title will have you laughing out loud and entertained for hours upon hours.

World War 3 Early Access Review

World War 3 had a rocky launch and will hopefully be fully redeemed by the development staff. The gameplay combined with the deep customization really does complete a modern military shooter dream. This title offers players the ability to be in full control of their gear and character, all while being fun. While this title is in the infant stages of Early Access, it shows great promise to be a fantastic experience in the long run. While map variation and different weapon choices and game modes seem to be limited as of now, I am sure we will see more and more content added in the future. Godspeed, The Farm 51.

WARRIORS OROCHI 4 Review

Strong mechanics, fun combat, and a lot of replay value are brought down by so-so graphics and a story that’s impossible to follow, yet you’ll still have fun mowing down scores of enemies.

Door Kickers: Action Squad Review

Side-scrolling, door-booting, and criminal-annihilating, Door Kickers: Action Squad is sure to fill the “I haven’t blown anything up today” hole that is burning through your chest. With couch and online co-op, you and your partner can blast through terrorist-filled house after drug-lord-filled house together. Just don’t expect anything deeper than east to west shooting.

Phantom Doctrine Review

Two parts XCOM and one part Invisible, Inc., Phantom Doctrine is a fun take on the turn-based tactical genre that struggles with silly pathfinding and an uncertain storyline.
