Phantom Doctrine Review

If you are a fan of deep, complex strategy games, then the turn-based spy simulator Phantom Doctrine is one that you will want to love. Unfortunately, the game makes it extremely difficult for you to do so.  It's a shining example of how a game with a bunch of great ideas can undermine itself repeatedly with terrible implementation.

Into the Breach Review

To anyone who suggests that video games need to be lavish productions with infinitely complex systems, bleeding edge graphics, and cinematic stories, I suggest taking a look at Subset Games' Into the Breach. This follow-up to the wildly successful FTL is, like chess, a seemingly simple little strategy game that hides a fantastic amount of thoughtful gameplay that is as addictive and challenging as it is spare.

Worms: W.M.D. Review

I have been a long time fan of the Worms series, especially Worms Armageddon. I am excited to say that we finally have a Worms game that not only surpasses Worms Armageddon in terms of fun, but also in terms of strategic depth and chaos. Worms W.M.D. is the best Worms game I have ever played.

Siegecraft Commander Review

Unfortunately, unless you happen to have those real-life friends that want to play something really different and are willing to buy Siegecraft Commander with you, the rest of this title isn't something I can recommend.
