Chaos on Deponia [Review]

Daedalic’s first Deponia game managed to provide a perfectly old-school point-and-click adventure experience while feeling completely fresh. So, Chaos on Deponia, the second part of the trilogy, coming out just a few months after the first game, is definitely great news. Keep in mind that the game picks up directly after the ending of the first, so if you still haven’t played it, you can expect heavy spoilers.

Tomb Raider [Review]

The name Lara Croft is certainly one most gamers are familiar with, even if they haven’t even touched a Tomb Raider game in their lives. Believe it or not, it has been almost 17 years since we were first introduced to the English archaeologist who eventually grew to become probably the most iconic female character of the industry. And even though, in the long run of Tomb Raider games, there have been both hits and misses, Lara’s name alone was more than enough to draw attention to a title.

The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct [Review]

The Walking Dead franchise seems to be made out of gold. From the highly popular comic books to the AMC series and the recent adventure game by Telltale, Robert Kirkman’s version of the ‘zombie apocalypse’ has had success written all over it. Walking Dead: Survival Instinct is the newest gaming installment of the series, and this time it comes in the form of an action/FPS game, which initially might seem even more fitting of the franchise than a classic adventure game with minimal action.

The Cave [Review]

Fans of old-school adventure games are most likely familiar with Ron Gilbert’s work which includes Day of the Tentacle, Maniac Mansion, and the Monkey Island games. Therefore, a new game created by Gilbert is bound to have his trademark style and brilliant humour. Even though The Cave is an adventure-platformer rather than a classic point-and-click, it still manages to be an excellently written and quite enjoyable title that won’t disappoint Gilbert’s fans.

DmC: Devil May Cry [Review]

The Devil May Cry game series has acquired a huge fanbase since it was first introduced in 2001, and it is considered a classic among hack n’ slash fans. So when a reboot of the series was announced it was met with both great excitement and scepticism. This time around the DMC game is developed by Ninja Theory, the team behind Heavenly Sword and Enslaved: Odyssey to the west. Perhaps the most controversial issue was not the game itself but the new style of Dante - the game’s main protagonist - which many believed that did not fit the character.

The Walking Dead: Season 1 [Review]

There is no doubt that when it comes to movie, TV show or comic book video game adaptations there have been more misses than hits, so naturally when a game based on the Walking Dead franchise was announced many kept their hopes low, especially since it was going to be an episodic point-and-click adventure. On the other hand, the studio responsible for the title’s development was Telltale Games, and if there is one thing that these guys have shown us is that they know how to create great games while fully respecting their source material. Fortunately, from the very first episode, the game proved more than worthy of Telltale’s reputation.

Zone of the Enders HD Collection [Review]

Not many mecha games make it outside Japan, but Hideo Kojima’s (of the Metal Gear series) Zone of the Enders and Zone of the Enders: the 2nd runner, which were released in 2001 and 2003 respectively for Playstation 2, are two of the few exceptions. After Konami’s recent releases of the Silent Hill and Metal Gear HD collections the time has come for the ZOE franchise to come to the PS3. This new collection is naturally smaller, considering that there were only two ZOE games released – not counting the Zone of the Enders: The Fist of Mars, which was released for the Game Boy Advance and cannot be included for obvious reasons.
