Amnesia: The Dark Descent

Horror game where you explore a castle and solve puzzles. The only defense against the the monsters is to hide in a dark corner. The down side of this is that your sanity drains by being in the dark so you can not sneak around all the time. Looking at monsters also drive you crazy. This game is almost to scary to play.

Apache

Fly the AH-64 Apache helicopter in a number of combat theatres and fight against tanks, planes and other helicopters. Supported co-op multi player also where you could fly in the same helicopter as pilot and gunner.

Assassin's Creed

Cool game with a great game world where you run around the streets of towns in the 10'Th centenary trying to kill people for your master. The game quickly gets repetitive as there is not much change in each town but the the things that are in the game work good with you stabbing someone and then escaping the town with guards chasing you.

Assassin's Creed: Revelations

Final game where one plays Ezio as he explore Constantinople trying to find the clues to enter Altair's secret vault in Masyaf. One also gets to play as Altair in the 13th century and Desmond in the 21st century but Ezio still stands out as the best and most fun character. Gameplay is nice and Constantinople is fun to explore and so is the story about Ezio. The overall story is still a total clusterfuck where it keeps folding onto itself to be able to drag on into more games. As a final note i think that all the people that wrote the Altair story part need to be fired as they turned him into a useless crybaby.

Assassins Creed 2

This game is set in the 15th century in Italy. You play as Ezio who becomes an Assassin after his father are murdered. You get a mansion, buy things for it as you get richer and kill of all those that had any part of your fathers death. Great fun and nice game world.

Battlefield 1942

First-person shooter action game that take place at the time of the second world war. In each battle the goal is to capture and hold more control points then the enemy and make him run out of supplies first. There are four theatres of operations in the game, Pacific , North Africa , Eastern Europe and Western Europe. Each theatre have a number of battlefields and you get the chance to play both Germany, USA, Japan, UK and Russia.

In the game you can drive tanks, boats and also fly planes. Not a realistic simulation but fun. You also get to pick your infantry class each time you respawn in the game and you can choose to be a scout, assault, anti-tank, medic or engineer.

Battlefield 3

Battlefield and now with a single player section. You spend most of the time in the single player game running behind someone from one piece of scenery to another. The story is told well but it is something about nukes as always. The sad part is that you really do not get to drive or fly that much and when you do it scripted to death. I enjoyed the Russians missions the most as they had such a pessimistic view of it all :)

Battlefield: Bad Company 2

Go around the world with the others of the Bad Company and try to stop the Russians from using a old Japanese super weapon from WWII. Nice environments but a bit tiresome vehicle sections.

Bionic Commando: Rearmed

Faithful remake of the first Bionic Commando with great art and music.

Bioshock

Explore the underwater city of Rapture and try to find out what is going on and why the plane you where on crashed there. Think System Shock but under water instead of space :).

BloodRayne

In this game you play as Rayne, a Dhampir (a form of vampire) that work for the secret Brimstone Society and hunt down and kill supernatural threats to humanity. Not that she care much for humanity, her main goal is to track down and kill her father. The game is played in third person view and both close combat and firearms are used to hunt down and kill the enemy. Health is restored by feeding on blood of the living and she have some special vision modes like one that slows down time like in the matrix movies.

Bob Came In Pieces

Physic-based puzzle game where you navigate your ship through each level trying to collect more parts for your ship and find the exit. The ship is shaped like a ball with eight ports for extensions such as thrusters and beams to carry things. Each extension can be assigned a key so it is possible to have some extra thruster fire only when the tractor beam is active. Each puzzle is a chance to build another ship configuration and try a new way to solve things.

Broforce

Game inspired by 80s and 90s action movies. Rescue prisoners of war in the level for extra life's. Each respawn picks a random bro to play and they are all references to action heroes from movies.

Brogue

Roguelike game where you are a small @ that try to survive in a evil dungeon.

Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare

Call of Duty series moves of into the modern day with this game. You play is first-persopn view most of the time and you switch between and number of characters to take part of all the events in the campaign. The story is the stupid hogwash one expects from something that takes many cool scenes and then try to string them together

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2

Second part of the Modern Warfare series and the story is so bad and over the top that the only sane thing is to ignore it and never talk about it again. The gameplay is otherwise still the same with many cool scenes and events that you get to enjoy and the most epic thing of all is the Special Ops missions that can be played in co-op with another player.

Carmageddon

A very educational game were you can learn the wrong way to behave in traffic and also good as relaxation for those that have a thing against pedestrians. The game is like the movie Death Race 2000 were you get cash for killing pedestrians and destroying your opponents cars. You use that money to upgrade your car and you can also win the opponents cars after a race. Extra bonus cash is also given for such things as 'insane stunt bonus' and 'splatter bonus'. On each level there are also a lot of power ups such as time bonus, turbo, wall climber and pinball mode. You can win each race in three ways, by completing the track, by destroying all you opponents or by killing a enough pedestrians.

Dark Void

After flying into the Bermuda triangle you get teleported into another world where evil aliens plan to take over earth. You get a jetpack that allows you to switch between on-foot and air combat and it also makes it possible to fly up and take over the enemy flyers in the air. Flying them is fun but stealing them is not as the hand of Capcom has added quick-time-events all over the place. Game feels half completed in some areas and that seen mostly in the story that skip over some major events.

Day of Defeat: Source

Class based first-person shooter set in World War II.

Dead Island

Open world zombie shooter. Really more of a zombie smasher as there is more focus on melee combat then guns. Walk or drive around the island, smash zombies and try to find a way off the island.

Dead Space

Third-person survival horror game where you play a engineer sent to fix some technical problems on the planet-cracker space ship Ishimura. Technical problems in this case is aliens, crewmen that rise from the dead and fanatics that think that death is a doorway to a better life. Environments are great ( fun zero gravity areas), game play is nice, controls are annoying and the story is linear and as predictable as a Friday the 13th movie.

Descent 2: Vertigo Series

More levels to descent 2 and now there is a evil thief in every level :(.

Deus Ex

This is a first person action game with role playing elements. You take the role of JC Denton, a anti-terrorist agent that travel the globe and try to find out the truth behind a evil conspiracy. It all takes place in a dark future around 2050.Your character have skills such as lock picking, swimming and some weapon skills and all skill start at the untrained level. Augmentations are another thing you can use to change your character and they give you ability s such as cloak and targeting systems. It s not possible to have all augmentations or master level in all skills so you need to choose the ones that fit your playing style.When you play you have to choose what sides to support in the game and who to thrust. There are some different endings in the game but that don t really matter that much.

Dogs of War

Shoot- em-up seen from above with a world that scrolls as you move along and kill everything. Can be played with two players.

DoomRL

Roguelike with a setting based on the first-person shooter Doom and Doom II. Includes a graphical tileset and the Doom sounds and music.

Drakan: Order of the Flame

In this action-adventure game the player takes the role of Rynn, a woman that searches for her brother that have been kidnapped by a evil sorcerer. She takes the help of the dragon Arokh and the game takes place both on the ground and in the air with Rynn riding Arokh. Nice landscapes and fun monsters but bad story.

Dune II: Battle for Arrakis

This was one of the first real-time strategy games. The game takes place on the planet Arrakis were three houses, Atreides, Ordos and Harkonnen are fighting for the control of the spice melange. To gather spice you send out your harvesters and then you use the spice to get money and build your base so you can destroy you enemy. Each house have their own weapons and tactics and building a defence tower inside the enemy base is always fun.

Dungeon Siege

This is all about stuff that are better then the stuff you already have. The story of the game is something about something evil somewhere doing something evil and you and your epic heroes need to travel the world, killing everything until all the evildoers are dead. In short, don t worry about it and play to get more stuff.

Dying Light

Run around in a city and try to avoiding the brain eaters. Like the past zombie game from Thechland the focus is on melee weapons but this time you can also climb and jump between buildings. Not many zombies can climb but to get the good stuff you need to get down on the ground and inside buildings. Good game, some boss battles i hate but i hate them in all games.

Dying Light: The Following

DLC to Dying Light where one get to explore the countryside with a car. Always fun to run over zombies with a car :).

Enclave

Medieval style hack/slash game. Two campaigns to play, light and dark. As always more fun to play the dark side . Some of the levels are really nice and you can still hear the silent scream of a role playing game in some places.

Far Cry

This game takes place on some paradise islands were you, the hero in a red shirt have taken your boat with a nice girl when someone choose to blow your boat to small parts. The only response is to get all the guns you can and kill them all . The great thing about this game is the nice environment setting with a green island with a nice blue water were you can walk around and almost feel like you are there on a vacation, if you ignore the fact that there are people with guns trying to kill you . It gets more boring when you get inside and face up to the clich? indoor first-person shooter kill evil mutant Nazis gameplay but you simply have to push on to the next outdoor section

Freelancer

Space combat/trader game like Privateer. The story is about you being one of the few survivors from space station destroyed by a unknown enemy force. The goal is for you to find out who they are, what they want and why all people you meet would like to kill you to get the strange alien artefact you have found. The ship is controlled by the mouse in this game and it works nice with your ships weapon turning and shooting towards your mouse pointer. Space combat is a bit simple with keys to heal shields and ship hull, almost like health and mana in a role playing games.

Golden Axe 2

Hack n Slash. Fun with two players

Half-Life 2

Gordon Freeman is back and now the aliens have invaded earth. The game takes place in and around City 17, a city controlled by the invading forces and besides running and shooting you also get the chance to drive a boat and a car. The game has the same problem as Half-Life with areas were they run the same idea for to long and it grows tiresome. The story is also bad, it feels like a movie with some good action scenes that don t really fit together that well.

Heroes of Might and Magic III: The Restoration of Erathia

Turn based strategy games set in a fantasy world. You control the heroes of the land and move them around with their armies to take control of towns and important places in the land.

Hitman: Absolution

Someone hire 47 to kills someone he does not feel like killing and it turn out to be a really bad idea to complain to 47 about that in his performance review :).

Hostages

Get in and rescue the hostages. Rainbow six in 2d

Lead and Gold: Gangs of the Wild West

Team-based multiplayer shooter in a western setting with four playable character classes. Each character has it's own unique synergy booster that affects nearby teammates so it's best to move as a team. My favourite character is the Trapper as you get a Buffalo rifle and a cool looking fox tail hat. One sad part is that the developers did not keep the 'eat the gun' animation in the final game when you clicked respawn without being dead. It was so fun :).

Legend

This is a isometric game were you control four characters on a epic quest to save the world. Most of the time you are down in the dungeons but it is also possible to travel the world map between the towns and fight the armies of chaos that walk around there.

Each of the characters have their own special ability. The berserker can go into rage and do more damage and the assassin can hide from monsters and do more damage when attacking from behind. There is also the troubadours that can play songs to boost the skills of all the characters and finally there is the wizard that can use magic. The game have a fun magic system were you used different runes to form spells and you can create spells that turn the whole screen in one big magic storm.

Lightforce

Puzzle game where you need to use your cars laser cannon to destroy a reactor on each level and then use the exit transporter. Your car can only drive on the road so you also has tanks and flyers that can carry things such as mirror and lenses to modify the laser shots you shot so you can hit things not visible from the road.

Limbo

Puzzle-platform game in monochromatic black-and-white that use lightning and ambient sounds to create a great atmosphere. The player controls a boy looking for his sister and the dark world have many ways to kill you and often you walk in the traps even when you see them just to see how it would kill the boy.

Magicka

Fun to cast spells to blow things up and to enjoy the jokes in the game. Suprender!

Maniac Mansion: Day of the Tentacle

Point-and-click adventure game where you try to stop the power mad Purple Tentacle from taking over the world. Fun game play where you flush things between the characters at different time lines to solve puzzles and also fun story where there are many jokes on different topics. Watch the intro and flushing things will make sense to you to :).

Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots

This game is made up of two parts, the sneaky action and the cutscenes. I really like the sneaky action as it have a good mix of options on what to do and it is fun to fight both humans and mechs. It also cool how most of the fights take place in areas where not everyone is trying to kill you. I hate the bossfights but I always hate bossfights. Always. The story is over the top and so are the characters but it's a over the top game after all.

The cutscenes then, there really need to be a separate section here as they are as long as the gameplay. Around of nine and a half hour of cutscenes. Sometimes you can use some keys to change the the view and see something extra but most of the time you can put away the controller. All the cutscenes are well made and I had no problem following the story even if it was my first game in the series. The problem I have with the cutscenes is that there is not enough content in them. All the cutscens drag on forever without adding anything. It just gets tiresome when it is easy to predict what will happen next and then suffer ten more minutes of nothing. I do not need to see snake check is gun another time or listen to another repeat exercise in exposition. If you play this game and feel bored it's the Skip Cutscene feature in the menu that is calling on you.

Metro 2033

First-person shooter video game based on the Metro 2033 novel by Dmitry Glukhovsky. The basic concept follows the book and you play Artyom that try to reach Polis. There are more action in the game, more visits to the surface and many of the people from the book you meet in in other places. Really good environments in the game and both the tunnels and the stations look great. Your flashlight always work but you can use a dynamo to charge it to be brighter for a while so it is a good mix of fear of the dark and still able to play. Besides to flashlight you can also power up your pneumatic weapons to make more damage. You can use the normal guns but bullets are also used as currency so it is worth to save on the cash by using the air guns.

The thing i had most problems with in the game is the fact that you spend many parts of the game with other characters following you. There are some great characters in the game but there are some scenes in the game that would be wonderful survival horror experiences that get destroyed by a character talking about it as it happens. The level Ghosts would be epic if not for Khan following you talking about everything like a bad exercise in exposition.

Metro: Last Light

Spend some more time in the Moscow metro in this sequel to Metro 2033. They have improved the game in almost every way. It's great to explore the environments both above and below ground. The only part that has failed to improve are the exposition spewing characters. Every part where there are another character leading you, and there are far to many, they keep on talking non stop about everything you see. Shut up and let me see the world for myself.

Metroid Prime

Can someone please put a end to this pointless boss battles in games. Shooting three times towards a glowing point gets really old fast :(. Other then the boss hell this game is nice with exploring and rolling around in ball form.

Metroid Prime 2: Echoes

Second part in the Metroid Prime series and now on a world split into a light and dark side where you use your light and dark beam to activate portals and travel between them. Still the same long boss battles but exploring is fun and so is the ball form.

Metroid Prime 3: Corruption

More boss battles but a little more simple in this game then the last. The final fight against the Phazon powered Dark Samus.

Moonstone: A Hard Days Knight

Very fun hack'n slash game that supports up to four players. You play on of four knights that have been chosen to search for the moonstone. You travel the world map and visit lairs and search for the four keys to the valley of the gods. The knight who have these can enter the valley of the gods and get a moonstone that can be used at Stonehenge to receive the blessing of ultimate power. There are also a dragon flying around that like to eat knights and it's best to avoid him at the start if the game.

Need for Speed Rivals

Enjoy a life as a cop or racer in a open world. Like always i did go for racer and crashed into cliffs and other solid objects all over the map. I'm not that good at driving.

Portal

Puzzle platform game that only real shortcoming is that it's to short :). In it the character you play is stuck in a laboratory and subjected to experiment by a AI named GlaDOS. You are forced to use a portal gun that creates space portals between flat surfaces to solve puzzles by GlaDOS while you are looking for a way to escape the laboratory. The sad part is that when you finally get a hang of the portal gun the game end's so it feels like playing only the tutorial part of a full game :(.

Portal 2

Time for more portal puzzles and now also with tractor beams, light bridges and gels that give surface special properties such as jumping higher. GlaDOS is back and also new characters like the robot Wheatley that help you and Cave Johnson, the deceased CEO of Aperture Science. Great voice work with funny dialogue on all characters in the game.

Quake

Worthless singleplayer with a story that seems to been done on a coffee break. In singleplayer you explore four different episodes with a number of levels and the goal of each level I simply to shoot your way to the exit. At the end of each episode you find a magic rune that you take with you and when you have all four runes a secret path in the hub that connects all the episodes open up and you can go and kill Shub-Niggurath, the final boss. The singleplayer campaign can also be played in co-op and it makes it a bit more fun :).

Multiplayer is deathmatch and fun but the thing that made Quake epic was how easy it was to modify and the number of modifications that was made for the core game.

Quake 2

First-person shooter that have nothing to do with Quake besides the name. It has a better story (they did it over lunch) but it's nothing to think to much about. The player is in the role of a Marine ( no hair ) that take part of an attack against an alien race called the Strogg. The attack more or less fails and the player is one of the few who survive so it's up to the player to kill of all the aliens including the Strogg leader Makron. You also get objectives to follow in the game so it's more of a linear battle across the levels you go through. Railgun weapon was fun.

Multiplayer works like Quake with deathmatch, capture the flag and you can also play the whole game in co-op. Like Quake this game was easy to modify so there where many cool mods made for it. I played mostly Capture the flag and 3TCTF, a mod with three teams playing capture the flag.

Roadwar 2000

The United States has collapsed and the roads are filled with gangs that drive around with guns and shoot at anyone. You start of with a small gang and the goal is to create a army so you can fight the other gangs. The game is a turn based strategy and tactical game and you move around on a map of the USA and it change to a tactical map when you do battle. Most of the time is spent hunting for oil, food and other supplies. On the tactical map you move your cars and decide who should shoot at what and when.

Saints Row 2

This looks like a clone of GTA San Andreas and in many way it is but I like the story and the mood in this game much more. You can also play this game in co-op with two players.

Saints Row IV

More madness with the superpowers, aliens and a dubstep gun. The superpowers work well but there is not much use for cool cars anymore when you can jump over buildings.

Saints Row: The Third

Action game where the Third Streets Saints gang once again make the world less safe. The world in this case is the city of Steelport and there are gangs to fight, crazy missions and tanks to skydive with :).

Silent Hunter III

Submarine games where you take the role of a German U-Boat captain in WWII. You get to hunt around on and below the waves for ships to sink all while trying to avoid the destroyers sinking you. After each patrol you get experience that you can use to improve your boat and crew. That is really needed as it feels like most of your crew has spent to much time sniffing diesel fuel and they do not understand the most basic operations needed. There should be a I do not care option for the crew management part of the game.

Slaves to Armok: God of Blood Chapter II: Dwarf Fortress

Simple graphics in a really advanced game. Your goal here is to control a group of dwarfs and construct a fortress for them to live in.

Styx Master of shadows

Good stealth game with a really shitty boss fight at the end. Combat system is not that good but it do focus you on solving things with stealth.

Super Metroid

Explore, fight and collect power-ups. There are also some boss battles and as always I hate them. Time to complete the game was 9.26 hours and item completion 81%.

Tankkk

Terraria

Action-adventure 2D game where you explore and fight monster. Resource gathering is important so you can build better gear and improve your house where NPC traders move in and sell you things as the game progress.

Thief 2 - T2X: Shadows of the Metal Age

This is a new fan made campaign for thief 2 and besides a bit to many undead levels it is fun.

Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon

It's 2008 and Russia starts another world domination plan like they always do in the Tom Clancy world. Good for the world that a elite special force, the ghosts from USA is there to save the day. There are 16 missions and they take place from the start of combat operations to the final battle in Moscow. Each mission have some goals like killing someone, saving somebody else and each mission also have a bonus objective that one could do if you feel like it. On each missions you can have three teams with three members in each. There are four types of soldiers, rifleman, support, sniper and then demo that can blow things up. Each character also have some skills and you get one skill point on each mission they are in so you can make them better at shooting or sneaking around. Great in multiplayer coop.

Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Desert Siege

Expansion with eight new missions. Takes place in Africa were some gun mad general once again decide to make his how empire and the ghosts go there to stop him. Realistic missions also, in one you save a oil refinery from the evildoers.

Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Island Thunder

More missions that take you to Cuba and to act as a peacekeeping force that work by killing everyone.

Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six: Vegas 2

More shooting in Vegas with the rainbow team. Nice but really stupid team AI sometimes. Moving tight in a groups might look cool but in this game they glue to you so much that you always walk into them. You can also stack up towards the doorways to peek inside but each time you do one of your team always takes position in front of the door. Stealth fail :(.

Trine

Side-scrolling action and puzzle game where three characters get trapped in a magical artefact called the trine so only one of them can exist at the same time (unless you play multi player). You switch between the characters as you wish when playing and use each characters ability?s to solve puzzles. The thief has a bow and grappling hook, the knight has a sword and a shield and the wizard can use magic to move and create objects. The levels are really good looking and the puzzles are fun. I also like the epic voice overs at the start of each level :).

Unreal Tournament

First-person shooter that focus on competitive playing against other players. Has the basic game modes such as deathmatch and capture the flag, the one that stand out is Assault. In it one team is set to attack and the other to defend and what needs to be done depends on the level. Unreal Tournament also has weapons with both primary and secondary fire and most are forms of weapons from Unreal. Some game modes also had the Translocator as a weapon, a form of personal teleporter that the player could throw out and transport to.

Warcraft II: Beyond the Dark Portal

Real-time strategy game that takes place in a fantasy world. You can play as the orc's or the humans that fight each other in the Second Great war. Like all real-time strategy games you need to collect resources, build you base and get troops so you can complete your objective each mission. The graphic is in a cartoon style with fun voices on the troops if you poke them to much with the mouse.

Warcraft II: Tides of Darkness

Expansion to Warcraft II.

World of Warcraft: Warlords of Dreanor

Time travel back to Outlands before it was destroyed. Enjoy cut scenes of angry orcs that scream at each other. Fight on to level 100 level and build a custom garrison instance and send npc followers on missions. Itís nice but it also removes a bit of the multiplayer in MMORPG. Most of the time that was once spent in cities is now spent in the garrison and i did not team up with another player even once to quest. It used to be that only the party that killed a mob would get to loot but now anyone can loot it. That change seems to have killed off the random groups that player formed when questing along in the same area and itís a bit sad. Still itís a fun single player game and there is a toy box for all the fun useless item now. Score:

Worms

Cute worms with guns and grenades. Great fun.

Worms Armageddon

More worms, more guns :)

X-COM: Terror from the Deep

This is the second X-Com game and it s not really that different from the first one. A new form of alien is now attacking from below the oceans and the battle takes place under water with some combat on ships. The game is more difficult than the first one also so you really need to work to get anywhere.

XIII

First-person shooter based on the XIII comic. Your character use guns and gadgets to uncover the mystery of his identity and a evil plot to destroy the USA. The game has a great cel-shaded art style but it it is a little weak in the gameplay at times.
