Best Survival Horror game of the decade

spycid | Nov. 1, 2014 | Review of The Evil Within™

Since Resident Evil 4 there hasn't been a lot of survival horror games in the gaming industry. The Evil Within goes to the roots of the genre and brings out the very best.

The reason the game thrives is the scary atmosphere, non-linear gameplay and the eerie feeling it generates makes us feel scared when lights go out.

Shinji Mikami, resuscitates the dying genre of video game industry and etches our mind with true to the old school gameplay.

It is a game not for the weak hearted but for those who love some challenges. I would definitely advice everyone to get this as this is as good as any time since it's Halloween.


Uncharted for PC gamers

spycid | April 15, 2014 | Review of Tomb Raider Game of the Year

You have heard about Uncharted before but you haven't played it? Then this is the game for you. Finally Tomb Raider gets a reboot (not that it was required) since it was long overdue for a new Tomb Raider to get out.

Tomb Raider is one of the best action adventure game of 2013. With a wafer thin storyline, the gritty gameplay, beautiful graphics and amazing set pieces, this game definitely deserves a goty award.

It's a must play for all Tomb Raider and Action-Adventure fans. This is the best deal out there right now, although it has most of the cosmetic dlcs. Still it's worth getting it now as the price is not going go down anytime soon.


One of the best superhero sequels ever

spycid | April 15, 2014 | Review of Batman: Arkham City

Batman Arkham City has everything it's predecessor Batman Arkham Asylum became famous for in a refined an expanded manner.

Storyline, graphics, gameplay everything is top notch. It's a must play game even if you are not a Batman fan. Go buy it already.


Fantastic PC port of a PSVita game, perhaps the best

spycid | April 14, 2014 | Review of Batman™: Arkham Origins Blackgate - Deluxe Edition

If you are a batman fan like me and don't have a PS Vita, then this game is a must for you. For the first time you can control Batman in a 2.5D world.

The core element remains the same, only the open world idea vanishes. The game does not fail to deliver. For a handheld console game, the game does a very good job both in terms of gameplay and graphics.

This is the best deal out there. What are you waiting for if you consider yourself a batman fan?


Unnecessary prequel

spycid | April 14, 2014 | Review of Batman Arkham Origins

After playing Batman Arkham Asylum & City, gamers expectations were sky high which Batman Arkham Origins fails to meet. It's more of the same. The game offers nothing which the previous game didn't offer.

Sure this game has an intriguing storyline, an unnecessary Multiplayer. Challenge Map is fine but MP is not required at all.

Background music and graphics are top notch. But the game lacks content, main storyline is too short. It seems like they wanted to focus on MP more instead of SP.

Anyway, it is still a must buy for all Batman fans. IMO, you should wait for the final version where season pass will be included too. This is the best deal you can get atm if you haven't bought it yet.


Spread some Valentine's Day Love on the deads

spycid | Feb. 13, 2014 | Review of The Typing of the Dead: Overkill – Love at First Bite DLC

After Shakespearean and filthy words, you thought there is nothing new to be done. Well think again. Those who are without a valentine or recently broken up with somebody or still in love, they should definitely give this a try. You will experience love in a new way, by making the infected ones bite a love bullet.

This DLC adds no new scenarios or cutscenes, however it only adds new classic words. However the scenario those words are used, make it uber funny and enjoyable. Get it if you want to spread your love on all those dead hordes.


Love Shakespeare? Then it's a must try.

spycid | Feb. 13, 2014 | Review of Typing of the Dead: Overkill Shakespeare DLC

There are gamers who love Shakespearean language and dramas. For the first time gamers will get an opportunity to try using Shakespearean language and words on a video game. That's right, you get to type old english words instead of the normal ones.

This DLC adds no new scenarios or cutscenes, however it only adds new classic words. However the scenario those words are used, make it uber funny and enjoyable. Get it if you want to go Shakespeare on all those dead hordes.


Filthy as &$#* dlc

spycid | Feb. 13, 2014 | Review of Typing of the Dead: Overkill Filth of the Dead DLC

There are gamers who love to spit out insults and profanities. You have insulted and cursed over the headphone. Now is the time for you to channel your anger through keyboard.

This DLC adds no new scenarios or cutscenes, however it only adds new filthy words. To increase your filthy dictionary also, you can get this dlc.


Wonderful game for keyboard warriors and old school gamers

spycid | Feb. 13, 2014 | Review of Typing of the Dead: Overkill

Typing of the dead overkill is just a remake of House of The Dead but in keyboard mode. If you consider yourself to be a fast typer then you should definitely try this. It will help you in reacting quickly while increasing your typing speed too.

The games is way over-the-top, gory and fun in it's own way. If you are still not satisfied then know this, the game comes with House of The Dead Overkill edition too.

So this is the best deal you can get at this price. Get it for the love of childhood memories and sleepless nights.


Mortal Kombat Superhero edition

spycid | Feb. 9, 2014 | Review of Injustice: Gods Among Us - Ultimate Edition

NetherRealm brings us another fighting game after Mortal Kombat, only this time with DC superheroes. This one is perhaps bigger and better fighting game. With an improved gameplay, polished graphics and much more easier to learn the moves tutorial, this game will be a great fighting game for a long time. Besides where else can you play Batman vs Superman?

Multiplayer matchmaking has also improved than Mortal Kombat. The only con is key remapping, but I guess no one plays a fighting game with a keyboard and mouse.

This is the best deal out there at the moment for this game. It's not going to hit lower than this anytime soon. So get it if you haven't gotten it yet.


Best Witcher game ever

spycid | Nov. 2, 2013 | Review of The Witcher II: Assassins of Kings Enhanced Edition

The Witcher 2 carries forward everything which made The Witcher 1 a cult hit. The game has amazing combat, punishing enemies, a well narrated story and full of eye candy elements.

The game is well optimized on pc and the enhanced edition makes the combat even more smoother. Having multiple endings and crafting your own storyline as you progress through the game makes it worth playing again and again.

If you haven't played the game, then I must say you have been living under a rock. This is the best deal out there, go get it now.


It's worth every penny

spycid | Oct. 19, 2013 | Review of Alan Wake: Collector's Edition

Alan Wake is a beautiful psychological horror game. You are bound to love the game for various reasons, like amazing atmosphere, gripping storyline, sensational gameplay and soothing soundtracks.

The Collector's Edition is worth it as it has those awesome soundtracks, some collectible lithographs which you can print if you wish and finally a pdf file which gives you a backstory of Alan Wake and the characters in the game.


Gunslinger brings Call of Juarez back to it's roots

spycid | Oct. 10, 2013 | Review of Call of Juarez®: Gunslinger

After a disappointing spin-off, Call of Juarez Gunslinger brings us back to the old glories of Wild West.

You will love this game if you loved Bound in Blood or the original Call of Juarez. The game has amazing storyline which is a must in a western spaghetti setting. Graphics adds a cherry on top and gameplay is the backbone of the game. You can't complain about anything in the game.

Basically if you are missing playing Red Dead Redemption or waiting for Quentin Tarantino to make a game, this is the closest you will get for now.

It's an amazing and perhaps the cheapest deal out there since it's release. Now is as good as any time for you to buy it. If you already have this game then get it for your friend.


Endless fun with Challenging levels

spycid | Oct. 10, 2013 | Review of Trials Evolution Gold Edition

Trials Evolution is a highly addictive 2d platformer. Yes I call it a platformer since you have to use physics to balance your character on various platforms.

It is undoubtedly one of the best arcade games out there as it's fun both while playing with either Single Player or Multiplayer. When you are playing Multiplayer you can compete against your friends. Single Player is also immersive as you will never like to settle for anything less than Gold.

This game offers variety of challenges and environments with a diverse gameplay as the mechanics get more complicated as you start progressing.

It has a creation level also, so even when you complete the Single Player campaign or your friends are not online to compete with then you can create & design your own levels or download tracks designed by various community members and friends which you can give a try.

The game also adds the original Trials which is remastered in High Definition so that it doesn't look ugly in your high end PCs.

Overall this is a wonderful deal, it would be a sin to miss this wonderful offer. Go grab it right away.


Best Superhero game ever

spycid | Sept. 28, 2013 | Review of Batman: Arkham Asylum Game of the Year

Batman Arkham Asylum is arguably the best video game based on a superhero. It has amazing storyline, mindblowing gameplay and crisp graphics.

It does not start like any other cliche filled superhero games. It has it's own unique atmosphere which is semi open world. There are several side characters. So you'll never get bored of playing with one character or interacting with one.

Gameplay is awesome as it's action-adventure where the combat is completely reinvigorating and adventure is satisfying as you have various places to roam around and solve puzzles.

Music and graphics is fabulous especially if you have a Nvidia Graphics Card, you can turn on PhysX and experience the game in a way that no one else can describe.

Overall this is a must play game for every superhero and Batman fan and even if you are not, you should play it to realize the propensity of greatness of a Comic-Book/Superhero games.


Best Fallout game ever

spycid | Sept. 16, 2013 | Review of Fallout 3

Fallout 3 is a ground breaking, revolutionary, legendary, a true game of the year. It has over 200 hours worth of gameplay with a variety of stealth, first or third person shooter which depends on you and mainly RPG elements.

It is a game that will send chills through your bone and make you feel sad for the character at the same time. The game tests your true skills on survival yet the game not being a survival game.

Amazing storyline, depth in character development, allies, factions, bonding, this game has everything. It's not just a game where you have to save the world. The game is about the journey of life when there is no meaning. Finding answers to the questions that haunt you.

The game has absolutely stunning post apocalyptic atmosphere, ruined and broken buildings and places never looked more beautiful before Fallout 3.

The choice to play the game in First & Third Person mode allows all kinds of gamers to enjoy the game in the same way.

It is a must play game for RPG fans, especially those who like gritty storylines, amazing gameplay & wonderful soundtrack. It is a sin not to play this game and call yourself a gamer.

However it is better to get the game of the year edition since it has all the dlcs which is a must buy for everyone who wants to play Fallout 3.


Amazing DLC which fixed the broken game

spycid | Sept. 13, 2013 | Review of RAGE: The Scorchers

Rage might have been an underwhelming game for many gamers but the DLC raised the level of the entire game.

You cannot expect a lot from a DLC. It is bound to be short with some new missions, areas, weapons and difficulty. However this DLC manages to impress us and remove the shadow which was cast upon the game since it's release.

Get the DLC to remove all negative thoughts from your mind regarding this game.


Beautiful game yet poorly optimized

spycid | Sept. 13, 2013 | Review of RAGE

A game from Bethesda means it will definitely turn out to be a game of the year. Why? Because Bethesda Games does not just release any games for the gamers. However with Rage it turned out to be just the opposite.

Rage was undoubtedly a very beautiful and creative game. However the game was poorly optimized for PC.

The game will never get boring because the ever-changing enemy types don't just keep you on your toes, they keep the game from feeling old.

People have a lot of Rage since the plagued launch which however has been overcome with two patches including The Scorchers DLC which was released almost after year from it's release.

You should definitely try this game if you like Post Apocalyptic Atmosphere like me, I am sure that you won't be disappointed.


Disasterously good

spycid | Sept. 13, 2013 | Review of Brink Complete Pack

In Splash Damage's Brink, rival factions do battle over the fate of a post-apocalyptic floating city called The Ark. But for some people The Ark sunk. Brink's intriguing combination of class-based team shooting a free-running movement have kept it high on gamers' radar throughout its lengthy development cycle. It's distinctive visual style, unique setting, and countless character customization options only fueled the fires of anticipation.

Brink is a class based shooter like Team Fortress 2 and the game was supposed to be the next Counter Strike with some added Free Running movement. However it felt miserably not for the lack of innovation, gameplay, graphics, design or artwork, but for the lack of interest in common gamers as it didn't offer anything new except a lot of hope to promise of bringing something new.

This game had a lot of time put into development and yet it still feels unpolished, rushed as the inclusion of too many things spoiled the game. It should have been Multiplayer only game, Single Player storyl mode was completely unnecessary.

Get this game if you like Class based fps and got tired of playing Team Fortress 2 or Counter Strike.


Complete Hitman pack at best price

spycid | Sept. 12, 2013 | Review of Hitman Pack

Hitman has always been a very popular franchise which everyone has played at least once in their life. This pack has all games except Contracts which did not release in Steam only.

For all stealth game lovers, Hitman is a must play franchise. Sure that Absolution has derived from it's original full stealth mode but still the game is worth playing just for the sake of Hitman.

As for Agent 47, Silent Assassin & Blood Money, well those were the games where Stealth was defined truly and Hitman was made a home product for every single gamer out there.


Best combination of Action RPG & Stealth

spycid | Sept. 12, 2013 | Review of Deus Ex Pack

Deus Ex has always been an Open World RPG Stealth game which means you can play it like Action RPG game or in a complete stealth mode. The choice is yours.

Deus Ex Invisible War laid the foundation for this ARPG and Stealth genre which Deus Ex Human Revolution took it to a new level.

Deus Ex Human Revolution can be completed without killing anyone and the game has huge replay value since every time you can change your play style and skill tree.

Since this collection has all DLCs and GOTY edition, this is a must buy for all Deus Ex, Action RPG and Stealth fans.


Ultimate Magicka Bundle at the best price

spycid | Sept. 12, 2013 | Review of Magicka: Collection

Paradox Interactive's acclaimed and comical multiplayer wizard computer game Magicka is not just a game, with so many expansions Magicka is an immersive world which you would want to play with your friends in co-op mode repeatedly, no matter how many times you have completed it.

Magicka has almost a unique and creative kind of sorcery. Magicka: Vietnam transports you to a fantasy land from where you would never want to exit from.

This is the best Magicka bundle out there.


Great Action games with various genres

spycid | Sept. 10, 2013 | Review of SEGA Action Pack

It's a great package for Action game lovers.

Alpha Protocol is truly an espionage RPG game where the combat is also fun and enjoyable.

Condemned Criminal Origins is one of the best horror games made by Monolith Productions. Despite the game being old, it is still relevant and a cult horror game.

Aliens vs Predator is the best human vs alien game made ever. If you loved the movie then you will surely love this.

Binary Domain is a 4-player futuristic fps which you can play with your friends also in 4-player co-op mode. Even if you have no internet you can play this as Single Player in offline mode. The game has some amazing boss fights and great futuristic soundtrack.

Overall it is an amazing bundle made for all Action game lovers.


Best Sci-fi RPG ever made

spycid | Sept. 10, 2013 | Review of Mass Effect Trilogy (NA)

The Mass Effect series is a true space opera full of interstellar battles, irreversible decisions, sprawling story-lines and so, so many defining moments. The events of the trilogy could fill twice as many games and novels as there already are.

The first game introduces you to the universe, characters and concept of Mass Effect which is easy to comprehend even if you are not a science fan.

The second one is a well successor to the original one and keeps you glued till the end.

The third one draws an epic conclusion which some might not feel justified or liked by many but still it truly sticks to the things which made the franchise famous.

This trilogy does not contain all DLCs, but it will definitely not break the storyline of the trilogy and you will not miss a thing even if you don't play the DLCs.


Best game of 2012 along with DLC

spycid | Sept. 9, 2013 | Review of The Walking Dead & 400 Days DLC Pack

The Walking Dead is the best game of 2012. If you loved the comics or tv series and haven't played this then you shouldn't call yourself a gamer. This is the best deal you can get. Just get it already for ultimate experience of the game of the year.


Ultimate Civilization V Bundle at an unbelievable price

spycid | Sept. 9, 2013 | Review of Sid Meier’s Civilization® Pack

It is one of the best Turn Based Strategy ever released. Gods & Kings and Brave New World are true expansion packs and not DLCs with some cosmetic add-on. The expansion adds a lot of new playable content when most of the people thought the standalone version has very little content.

Gods & Kings is something you should take a look at. It doesn't magically transform this into Civilization IV but then, that would be silly. The scenarios might be fictional but still it's great.

Brave New World completely alters the way culture, diplomacy and trade are handled.Culture is no longer simply a modifier that expands your borders, and trade isn't just a magic money connection between two cities.Instead, they're now a part of the game world.

Overall it's a must buy bundle for all Civilization and Turn Based Strategy genre gamers.


Ridiculously super fun

spycid | Aug. 25, 2013 | Review of Saints Row IV DEEP

There was no doubt that this game would not be a fun. Sure this game is expanded version of the standalone DLC Enter The Dominatrix which was supposed to release this year. Still this game can be called a standalone full of mindless fun and a great game. Co-Op is also uber fun as you can drop-in and drop-out seamlessly whenever you wish. It's definitely improved in both gameplay and graphics terms. There are so many things to do that you will never get tired or bored of doing. It's a must play for all sandbox and over the top game lovers.


Fluid & Dynamic Platformer

spycid | Aug. 24, 2013 | Review of Puddle

There have been hundreds of platformer games yet none of them are about fluid like Puddle. In Puddle, you have guide a fluid through garden hose, rocket engine, human body and many more. It is a game where you have to use friction, gravity and other physics related elements to reach your goal. If you love physics in game, then you will love this too.


Beautiful & updated re-release to please the fans

spycid | Aug. 24, 2013 | Review of Dungeons & Dragons: Chronicles of Mystara

Chronicles of Mystara got a beautiful update in the graphics as well as a drop-in/drop-out co-op mode inclusion for upto four players. There is also another new mode introduced, House Rules where you can create and play by your own set of rules. If you like completing objectives then there is another Challenge system mode for you. It's worth a buy for every D&D fans and the new fans too.


Gorgeous God Game

spycid | Aug. 24, 2013 | Review of Reus

Reus is a gorgeous god game. It's a 2d game where you control various giants and you control the lives of puny humans. When humans try to destroy the civilization, you have to be the god and cause some disaster and create a storm to save the civilization. It is more like Black & White. Get it if you like being a god in a game.


Great insect killer tps

spycid | Aug. 24, 2013 | Review of Lost Planet: Extreme Condition - Colonies Edition

Lost Planet is probably the first game where humans fight against giant insects. It was a revolutionary concept for it's time and it was greatly executed. Sure that graphics might seem outdated now but still it's worth a try before Lost Planet 3 gets released.


A true survival game

spycid | Aug. 23, 2013 | Review of Don't Starve

Don't Starve is unlike any other game you have ever played in your life. It's truly a survivor game where the main objective is to survive by any & every means necessary. It's not a survival horror game. Sure there is a lot of startling and horrifying moments yet it's unique on its own. Because you just have to explore and scavenge to continue to survive.


Brilliant Old School Tactical Shooter

spycid | Aug. 23, 2013 | Review of The Bureau: XCOM Declassified

One genre which is missing from the latest games is Tactical Shooters. This game blends the modern Third Person Shooter genre with old school Tactical aspects. Old noire feeling and Cold War setting made the game look beautiful. Not only does it look beautiful, but the storyline is great. It's not a generic run and gun and press a lot of buttons game. I liked it since it's a tactical game where you have to strategize to move ahead. I hope you will like it too.


Best fighting game on PC

spycid | Aug. 23, 2013 | Review of Mortal Kombat Komplete Edition

WB games finally made a beautiful port to the most cherished fighting game for pc gamers by finally bringing it back to the home console. Including all the dlcs and making it a complete edition made it even more on the must buy list. Gameplay is amazing as always. Arcade ladder, Tag team makes it fun to play with a friend and you can always fight against brag to settle who's the best in the legendary game. It is a must buy in every fighting gamers collection.


One of the most underrated Sci-fi TPS

spycid | Aug. 18, 2013 | Review of Binary Domain Collection

Binary Domain gameplay is quite similar to Gears of War, yet the futuristic setting and co-op game mode gives us a unique way to play. It has a good storyline which can keep the gamers interested. Various difficulties gives us replay value and music is also soothing to our ears. If it were promoted enough definitely this game would've done much better. Anyways give it a try if you love Third Person Shooters.


Childhood memories in remastered HD

spycid | Aug. 18, 2013 | Review of DuckTales: Remastered

I still remember playing this game in my childhood as well as watching the cartoon series. I simply loved it when I got to know that it's going to get HD treatment. Would recommend this game for everyone and to Ducktales fans, I don't need to say much, do I?


Must buy for MP

spycid | Aug. 15, 2013 | Review of Max Payne 3: Rockstar Pass

If you wish to try something new then you should definitely try the multiplayer of Max Payne 3. Bullet Time adds a new dimension to Max Payne 3. Season Pass is generally too costly, but at this reduced price, you can't ask for a better deal. Go grab it if you wish to try the Multiplayer of this game.


Best sandbox game of all time

spycid | Aug. 3, 2013 | Review of Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas

If there is any game that has raised every benchmark in the gaming history then this is the game. There is not a thing you can't do here, drive any car you wish, have as much fun as you want, defend whatever you wish and when you are bored then you can start focusing on the main storyline and have fun. Overall it's a must play title for all sandbox fans and I'm sure most of you have played this already but very few have completed the game.


Great & much improved sequel with added RPG elements

spycid | Aug. 3, 2013 | Review of Darksiders II and Season Pass

The sequel to the critically acclaimed Four Horsemen Saga, Darksiders, lived up to the expectation and truly delivered to it's level best. If you loved the first one then you will love this more because here you can not only carry a lot of weapons but also wield weapons and play the game according to your style. The game has RPG elements added to it, although storyline isn't affected by it. The DLCs give you an extra opportunity to spend more time in the fictional world where Death is the character you play the game with.


An improved and smoother sequel

spycid | Aug. 3, 2013 | Review of Max Payne II: The Fall of Max Payne

Not only Bullet Time is improved but Remedy delivered another Masterpiece in the form of Max Payne 2. Gameplay, storyline, graphics, music, in all aspect it is truly a magnificent game. Without divulging any details I must say that it is a game which will keep you invested emotionally and gameplaywise.


Best bundle of Max Payne

spycid | Aug. 3, 2013 | Review of Max Payne Complete Bundle

If you are Max Payne fan and you haven't got all games, then you shouldn't call yourself one. This is the best bundle available out there and you should not hesitate to get it. For Max Payne fans I have nothing new to say, for new gamers, I have only one thing to say, without Max Payne your gaming life is incomplete.


Timeless Revolutionary TPS

spycid | Aug. 3, 2013 | Review of Max Payne

Rockstar always know how to deliver classic. Max Payne was a revolutionary game with a new Bullet Time concept which was way ahead of it's time. With a comic strip style cutscene and mature storyline, Max Payne won the heart of everyone. This is the beginning of one of the most accomplished franchises made by Rockstar Games.


Best Detective game ever

spycid | Aug. 2, 2013 | Review of LA Noire

This game does the unthinkable. It completely relies on how you interpret the AI's reaction. If you can manage read the NPC correctly and find the clues then this game will be the most interesting and best game you have played blended with the right amount of Action and Adventure at every unexpected moment. It has brilliant set pieces. It's a must play title for all Sherlock fans.


Great improvement and a cult sandbox game

spycid | Aug. 2, 2013 | Review of Grand Theft Auto: Vice City

If there is any sandbox game which has set a benchmark in gaming industry, then that game is GTA Vice City. You can't call yourself a gamer if you haven't played this game yet. Arguably one of the most popular game of all time. This is the sandbox that everybody has played at least once in their lifetime. Get this already if you haven't bought it yet.


First true 3d sandbox game

spycid | Aug. 2, 2013 | Review of Grand Theft Auto III

After two top down sandbox games, Rockstar Games released a revolutionary 3d sandbox game Grand Theft Auto III. An immersive world where you can run, walk, drive, rob and have as much fun as you want. Yes the graphics is definitely outdated and gameplay might feel a bit a sluggish, but you should not forget that the game was revolutionary for it's time.


GTA meets High School

spycid | Aug. 2, 2013 | Review of Bully: Scholarship Edition

Bully is a refreshing take on high school in a sandbox mode. You play as an anti-hero, just like any other gta character where it is an open world environment, you can start any main story missions and spend as much time as you want by completing side missions. Overall it's a must play title for every gamer and sandbox lover.


A Trip down memory lane with Lara Croft

spycid | July 28, 2013 | Review of Tomb Raider: Legend

Truly an old school Action Adventure which are missed days due to more focus on cosmetic things & motion capture, instead of original gameplay and great storyline. This is the game which epitomizes Action-Adventure genre and paves the path for future games.


Brings back some childhood memories

spycid | July 28, 2013 | Review of Tomb Raider: Anniversary

You might have grown up playing these Lara Croft games. Gameplay was a primary focus when graphics wasn't. Those days are truly missed when more emphasis were put on storyline also. It's a brilliant game with mind boggling puzzles, so what are you waiting for? Get it if you love Action Adventure games & obviously Lara Croft.


Best Tomb Raider game of the original release

spycid | July 28, 2013 | Review of Tomb Raider: Underworld

From the word get go, this game gives you a certain adrenaline rush which cannot be described. This game expands the horizons both in terms of puzzle and gameplay. It's not open-world, still it's amazing. Must buy for all Action-Adventure and Tomb Raider fans.


Worth it at such an amazing price

spycid | July 28, 2013 | Review of Sleeping Dogs Pack

Loved the main story so much that you want to return to HK with Wei Shen one more time? These dlcs give you absolutely the correct right amount with story expanding dlcs to keep you hooked to the immersive beautiful world.


Shorter than the original yet fun & bizarre game

spycid | July 28, 2013 | Review of Kane and Lynch 2: Dog Days

This game had improved gameplay, graphics than it's predecessor. Storyline is improved too. It's uber fun to play in Co-Op mode with a friend. Must buy for all Co-Op shooter lovers and especially if you loved the original one.


Gritty dark fps

spycid | July 28, 2013 | Review of Kane & Lynch: Dead Men

Kane & Lynch is unlike any other third person shooter you have ever played. Gameplay is quite unique, storyline is dark as well as good at the time. The only con of the game is that it's short, still for it's price, it's worth it.


Best fun sandbox game

spycid | July 28, 2013 | Review of Just Cause 2

Before starting to play Just Cause 2 you have to learn to forget about physics, realism and everything, then you can start enjoying the beautiful & uber fun sandbox game. Storyline is short, however you can have endless amount of fun if you know how to have it. If you haven't bought it yet then you shouldn't call yourself a sandbox fan.


The DLC's are worth it

spycid | July 27, 2013 | Review of Hitman: Absolution - Professional Edition

If you wish for additional weapons and artbook then get this Professional Edition instead of the vanilla standard edition.


First Semi-Open World Hitman Game

spycid | July 27, 2013 | Review of Hitman: Absolution

A lot of people dislike this game, maybe cause it deviates from what made this franchise so popular. For the first time this game becomes semi open world, means it allows you to complete a mission in multiple ways. Although it's not always that, sometimes it becomes a rail/corridor shooter. Still it's fun enough to play whether you are a Hitman or stealth fan.


Stealth has evolved and so did Hitman

spycid | July 27, 2013 | Review of Hitman: Blood Money

Despite being the fourth entry into the game, Hitman proves the element of surprise and delivering even when the expectations are sky high are not impossible. If you love stealth or Hitman, you don't need any other reason to hesitate whether to get it or not.


A classic which is sinful to miss

spycid | July 27, 2013 | Review of Hitman 2: Silent Assassin

If you love Hitman and have never played this, then you shouldn't call yourself a Hitman fan. It is a game which I have been playing since I was in school and still this game feels to be a timeless and ageless classic. The Original Assassin is truly revealed in this game.


The origin of The Original Assassin

spycid | July 27, 2013 | Review of Hitman: Codename 47

This game started on one of the most cult franchise in the history of video games. Without playing this game, playing the other games is nothing but blasphemy. Must play for stealth & Hitman fans.


Best reboot & best game of the franchise

spycid | July 27, 2013 | Review of Tomb Raider

Tomb Raider is arguably the best reboot in the video game industry and perhaps the best game of the franchise too. The gameplay is more or less same as the previous one only with the addition of set pieces the game had more of a live interactive cinematic gameplay. Story is the origin of Lara Croft the Tomb Raider, so it's quite fitting for a reboot too. Overall it's a must play title for a Lara Croft and Action-Adventure game fan.


Unnecessary dlc

spycid | July 26, 2013 | Review of Deus Ex Human Revolution: Tactical Enhancement Pack

Deus Ex Human Revolution is almost a flawless game unless they had the dlcs included in the game. Still you can get it if you wanna do a speed run :)


It makes the game easier

spycid | July 26, 2013 | Review of Deus Ex Human Revolution: Explosive Mission Pack

If you loved the main storyline and don't find anything missing there, then don't get it. As this dlc will only help you if you are playing in uber hard mode, else it will make the game easier.


Great action RPG and a worthy prequel

spycid | July 26, 2013 | Review of Deus Ex: Human Revolution

Deus Ex Human Revolution is a great prequel to the old Deus Ex games released almost 10 years ago. This game has an open world which lets you finish the game without killing anyone, the first of it's kind.Gameplay has a lot of varieties which gives enough liberty to roam around and choose any play style you wish, environment not only makes the game look beautiful but you can use it to your own advantage. Storyline is quite fine too. The game is meant for both Action and Stealth lovers. Must play game for every Deus Ex, Action RPG & Stealth fan.


Beautiful, artistic & great platformer

spycid | July 22, 2013 | Review of Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams

It is indeed a beautiful and artistic platformer. What gathered my attention is unlike any other indie platformers it's not at all an easy. It proves quite challenging at times. So if you wish to try a challenging platformer, get this game, it's definitely worth your money & time.


A welcome break from overdone AAA Titles

spycid | July 22, 2013 | Review of Dear Esther

It is a game which might not be liked by everyone. It's more like an interactive live-action beautiful narration of fiction minus the action part. The locations makes you realize what the character went through and you have to figure out what happened. Must play game for everyone who wants a break from all kinds of AAA titles.


Beautiful Indie Sandbox game

spycid | July 22, 2013 | Review of Darkout [Playfire]

There aren't a lot of Sandbox games, let alone be an indie game. I have always wanted to have a sandbox game developed by an independent developer and it's so beautiful that you can immerse yourself for hours. Another reason for you to try this game is, it has almost endless levels as the levels are generated randomly.


Must buy for Metal fans

spycid | July 21, 2013 | Review of Brutal Legend + Soundtrack

This game has one of the most amazing music score. It starts of with an open-world sandbox game and later on turns into a RTS, still the game does not lose any sense of direction or momentum. It's a must play title for Heavy Metal fans as well as Open World Sandbox and RTS fans. It's a great news that finally this game arrived for PC after more than 5 years. Get this version if you loved the music of the game.

Epic gory game that never ceases to amaze us

spycid | July 21, 2013 | Review of The Binding of Isaac

If you like games where you can spend hours with unique levels and gameplay, then this is the game for you. You have to play to understand that this game has almost endless levels as each level is generated randomly so you are never playing the same level twice.


A unique RPG game

spycid | July 20, 2013 | Review of 99 Spirits [Playfire]

If you like JRPG games and want a simple game, then this is the game for you. The combat is not complex and the cutscenes are not eye candy, yet it is still worth trying since the storyline is unique and gameplay is a bit retro style fighting.


Best RTS game in recent memory

spycid | July 8, 2013 | Review of XCOM: Enemy Unknown Pack

2k managed to revive an age old dead franchise by creating one of the best RTS games lately. It's like a game of chess where it tests your brawns and the smart AI helps you strategizing.


Best game of 2012

spycid | July 8, 2013 | Review of The Walking Dead

This game got the maximum number of awards for one reason and that is gripping and strong storyline. In the age of graphics and gameplay oriented games, Telltale seems to do the unthinkable by making a strong game adapted from comics and inspired from tv series. This is a must play for all gamers as there is a reason this game is called the best game in recent memory.


Best Sonic bundle ever

spycid | July 8, 2013 | Review of Sonic Ultimate Pack

One of the best Resident Evil games since Resident Evil 4

spycid | July 8, 2013 | Review of Resident Evil: Revelations

After a long time this game brings the same feeling as the Resident Evil 4 gave us. This is an interquel and certainly not as like as the last few Resident Evil games. Originall this was supposed to be a 3ds exclusive but later on Capcom decided to release it in all platforms which is a blessing for all gamers.


It's more of an action tps plagued with QTEs

spycid | July 8, 2013 | Review of Resident Evil 6

Resident Evil 6 might not be true to its roots, still if you love cinematic moments and QTEs, then this is your type of game. This game is full of QTEs which one might complain and another might enjoy. Good thing about this game is you can play the game with various characters which increases replay value and co-op mode saves the game from being a disaster.


It's a good tps but not a good Resident Evil game

spycid | July 8, 2013 | Review of Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City

Despite being a good tps game, this game has almost non-existent horror. So you can't call it a horror game at all. It's a very good tps game and best played in co-op. It's more of a spin-off and less of Resident Evil game. Get it only if you intend to play co-op mode.


Amazing horror fps with loads fun

spycid | July 8, 2013 | Review of Painkiller: Complete Pack Pre

It's not easy to find horror fps where you can have a lot of fun. Painkiller is one of the most oldest horror fps franchises. If you like having fun in fps games, you should give this a try.


Better with a friend and as a sequel

spycid | July 8, 2013 | Review of Lost Planet 2

Lost Planet 2 is much improved both in terms of gameplay and graphics and it's uber fun to shoot in co-op mode. It's much more improved than it's predecessor in terms of storyline too. Must play to prepare yourself for Lost Planet 3.


Nice tps with giant insects

spycid | July 8, 2013 | Review of Lost Planet: Extreme Condition - Colonies Edition

This game might look outdated both in terms of gameplay and graphics, but this will bring back memories for those who are familiar with this franchise. Even if you are not, now is a very good time to try it since Lost Planet 3 is coming out and it's fun to shoot giant insects with a friend.

Great action zombie game

spycid | July 8, 2013 | Review of Killing Floor Complete Pack

If you loved Left 4 Dead and wished for the game to be melee and action oriented instead of fps, then this is your kind of game. Must play for kill 'em all zombie game.


One of the best horror fps franchise

spycid | July 8, 2013 | Review of F.E.A.R Pack

Best Bus Simulator ever

spycid | July 8, 2013 | Review of Bus Driver

I remember this being my first game in my new pc before I got my graphics card and I loved it as it was a very relaxing game and it helps us understands what a bus driver goes through and how difficult it is.


A trip to the Back To The Future franchise

spycid | July 8, 2013 | Review of Back to the Future: The Game

If you loved the movie trilogy like me then it's a must try for you. Just playing with the characters like Marty, Doc, Einstein is worth buying this game. I won't divulge any details and without further ado buy this game and relive one of the best sci-fi franchises ever as Telltale never disappoints.


Must play masterpiece title

spycid | July 8, 2013 | Review of Another World: 20th Anniversary Edition

If you haven't played this then this is a great time to play it since it is a revolutionary and timeless game. Remastered version gives you a very good reason to try it just in case if you are bothered with outdated graphics.


Scary and startling at the starting

spycid | July 8, 2013 | Review of Anna Extended Edition

The game does a very good job at creating good scary environment and startling moments, but once you get the hang of the game, you realize it's not that scary at all. Although it's worth trying if you are a Horror game fan and with a price like that, there is no harm in trying.


Most difficult racing game ever

spycid | July 5, 2013 | Review of GRID

If you want the Dark Souls of racing game then get the game GRID which will punish you to cross the finish line. Completing a race would give you a sense of relief and achievement. A must play game for all hardcore racing game fans for it's torturing gameplay and rewarding moments.


Fun but could have been better

spycid | July 5, 2013 | Review of DiRT Showdown

The game is uber fun and amazing one to play with friends but the game deviates a lot from it's original and fails to be a proud successor and spin-off. Despite the game being flat out arcade style racing, it fails bring innovation and a refreshing gameplay.If you like to have fun with your friends then it's a must buy title for you.


Marvellous gangster sandbox game.

spycid | July 5, 2013 | Review of Mafia II Complete Pack steam

One of the most awaited sequels to the greatest retro themed sandbox game Mafia has a very strong storyline and amazing graphics. Character animation and soundtracks are also amazing. The only thing the game lacks is open world and side missions. Although if you love retro style sandbox games then you will love this.


Best dirt game of the series

spycid | July 4, 2013 | Review of DiRT 3

Undoubtedly this is the best dirt game of the series, only sad part is this game lacks rally. So if you don't miss rally much, you are gonna love this game as this game has improved gameplay, graphics and amazing new environments and locations. Must buy for all dirt fans.


Fun arcade off-road racing game

spycid | July 4, 2013 | Review of FUEL

If you want to play a racing game like dirt having a lot of fun and no rally or serious business, then this is the game for you. From jaw-dropping moments to cliff jumps, this game will take you through a roller coaster ride. If you wish for a out of the world racing experience, get this game.


The best dirt game

spycid | July 4, 2013 | Review of DiRT 2

This is considered the best dirt game for a reason, not for rally only but also for the best rally, off-road experience. If you love playing off road racing games then this is a must play game for you. Gameplay, variety of tracks and car, everything is a reason for you to get this game.


Best Batman Game made ever

spycid | July 2, 2013 | Review of Batman Game of the Year Pack

If you want to play ground breaking superhero game then start with Batman Arkham Asylum and then continue playing Batman Arkham City and wait for Batman Arkham Origins. It has an amazing gameplay, great and unique combat and gripping storyline. Graphics is amazing too along with the soundtrack. The game has a lot of replay value due to side quests and challenges. It is a MUST buy for all Batman fans.


Amazing action game with a blend of horror

spycid | July 2, 2013 | Review of Resident Evil 5

The series took a turn towards more of an action than horror from this game. Despite the game having less horror and more gore, the game still gathers enough to keep players interested and the co-op revolutionises how a horror game should be played. It's a must play title for all horror and Resident Evil fans.


Best RPG game in history

spycid | June 30, 2013 | Review of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Legendary Edition dns

There is not a game in the history where you can spend hours and still not get bored of anything or run out of quests. Skyrim is game where you can do it all, be whatever you want to be and slay some dragons for real. It's the best in the Elder Scrolls series and must play for all ES fans. Since this has the all dlc's and updates, it is a must buy for all Skyrim lovers.


Most awaited sequel fails to deliver yet it's intriguing

spycid | June 23, 2013 | Review of Mafia II

Despite the highly anticipated sequel being a great game both storywise and gameplay wise, the game wasn't successful since the expectations were sky high. The real reason is, the game didn't have enough side missions and free roam. If they had added those even in dlcs then the game would've have been. It's a must play for Mafia fans and those who love retro setting.


One of the most underrated TPS in recent memory

spycid | June 23, 2013 | Review of Spec Ops: The Line

This game has arguably the best and strongest storyline in any TPS ever. It is not just any other generic shooter. Gameplay might give u a feeling that you have played this before, but the storyline is sole reason you should play this game. The dessert atmosphere looked brilliant. Must play title for anyone who wants more than a generic shooter with good storyline.


The revolutionary fun fps with gazillion guns

spycid | June 23, 2013 | Review of Borderlands Game of the Year Edition

Just when you thought fps games can't offer anything new anymore, Gearbox Software started a revolutionary franchise Borderlands. The game is worth playing for its literally thousands of guns collection, storyline is decent too. And gameplay is unique since you can choose between various characters according to your playstyle. Since it has all dlcs and it's a game of the year, it's a must buy for everyone.


Refreshing Horror FPS

spycid | June 23, 2013 | Review of The Darkness II

It is one of the best Horror FPS released in recent times. The storyline is amazing, it'll always keep you wondering what's happening. Gameplay never gets boring as you can use whichever weapon you like to use and the game has unique weapons instead of just generic guns. Cell shaded graphics does complete justice to the game. Overall it's an amazing game and must play for all horror game fans.


Quite better than the first one

spycid | June 22, 2013 | Review of Poker Night 2

If you love Borderlands and Portal characters and want to have fun with your friends in a unique environment completely different than the characters original universe than you should try this. It's a fun game for such a small price


You can also have fun with TF2 characters without shooting anyon

spycid | June 22, 2013 | Review of Poker Night at the Inventory

If you love Team Fortress 2 and tired of shooting and looting, you should give this a try to have fun with your imaginary friends in a simple Poker game.


A better substitute for MotoGP fans

spycid | June 22, 2013 | Review of SBK X Superbike World Championship

If you are tired of playing MotoGP games, then this game will bring a welcome change for you. The gameplay might not have changed from it's predecessor as it's not possible. But the improved AI, graphics, more lenient towards sim and less arcade feel will give joy to the Bike Racer. Get newer version than this if you can, else this is good too.


Best reboot of one of the most popular & fan favorite franchise

spycid | June 21, 2013 | Review of DmC: Devil May Cry

DmC does justice to one of the most cherished, prized and loved fan-favorite series of all time. The game is absolutely terrific and enjoyable for every hack n slash lovers. It might be easier than the original one, but there are Dante Must Die, Heaven or Hell, Hell or Hell mode for a reason. Must play for all Devil May Cry and hack n slash fans.


Wonderful concept but regurgitated gameplay

spycid | June 20, 2013 | Review of Inversion (NA)

Inversion has a wonderful concept but the gameplay is same as Gears of War or Mass Effect. Despite having a brilliant and fresh concept, it failed to execute it properly due to poor gameplay. Story isn't bad either. The game is definitely worth a try for all cover based Third Person Shooter lovers


Best Tennis game released for PC

spycid | June 19, 2013 | Review of Virtua Tennis 4

It's a very easy game and arguably the best game ever released on PC platform. It's very easy to adapt, learn controls and story mode is fun. To avoid redundancy and mundaneness, the game added various fun mini-games. It's a must play for all Tennis Lovers.


Not that bad for a game that was delayed countless times

spycid | June 17, 2013 | Review of Duke Nukem Forever

Surely the gameplay, graphics can't match up to today's games, but I kinda liked the gameplay. There was variety in it and the puzzles were easy but still I liked them. Worth a try for Duke fan. This game is not a train wreck as people say, there are far more worse game than this which had a lot of hope which wasn't fulfilled.


Fastest and hardest platformer

spycid | June 17, 2013 | Review of Super Meat Boy

If you want to play a fast and hard 2d arcade platformer, this is the game you should play. It's not very easy and not uber hard either only if you know how to best in it and not the game get the best of you. Must play for all platformer lovers who loves a bit of challenge.


Crazy over the top fun game

spycid | June 16, 2013 | Review of Saints Row: The Third dns

This game is huge improvement from Saints Row 2. It's well optimized for pc, gameplay is uber fun. You can do whatever you want, be whoever you want and do some crazy whacko missions, stunts. You cannot have fun like this anywhere else in any other open world sandbox game. It's a must play for all open world sandbox game lovers.


Most underrated game of Codemasters

spycid | June 14, 2013 | Review of Damnation

I don't know why people say bad things about this game. I loved the game except the story. If you take the gameplay into account you can like this game. Sure it takes a lot of bullets to defeat some of the most weakest AIs then again which modern game doesn't? Anyways those gamers who love third person shooter and action-adventure they should give it a try cause I'm sure there is no game like Damnation.


True successor to Modern Warfare, perhaps the best gameplay wise

spycid | June 14, 2013 | Review of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2

Since COD 4: Modern Warfare, entire COD gameplay has changed but this one brought the best of the series, whether it's stealth kill or driving jet-ski, this game raised the bar to new level which has laid a foundation for future games to incorporate vehicular warfare. It's a must play for every COD fan.


Best storyline in COD ever, but not best gameplay

spycid | June 14, 2013 | Review of Call of Duty: Black Ops

It's the same old thing being repeated again and again. Honestly it's not easy to bring out another game within a year of the most popular multi-platform franchise in the history of video game. They should just make the game MP only and release SP separately or completely do away with it. It is only recommended if you are either a COD fan or love easy shooters with a great storyline.


Beautifully grotesque yet uber fun game

spycid | June 11, 2013 | Review of Bulletstorm dns

This was a sleeper hit of it's year. too bad the sequel was never made. Bulletstorm is a fresh take on fps genre and with it's 'Kill with skill' usp, the game really rewards players based upon their method of shooting. Storyline is also quite enjoyable and there is never a dull moment in the entire game. This game lacked MP which was compensated with 4player Co-Op mode. Bulletstorm is a must play for those who want a mindless fun fps.


A wasted potential of a wonderful concept

spycid | June 11, 2013 | Review of Brink Nexway

This game should have been strictly MP only. The SP part was completely unnecessary and uncalled for. MP would have been more interesting if the game had conventional MP game modes. Trying to add countless outfits and variety of environment, they kinda forgot to add a nice storyline for SP. Don't get this game for playing SP, MP is the only part which is playable.


One of the best hack n slash in recent memory

spycid | June 11, 2013 | Review of Darksiders

Epic storyline, complex puzzles, variety of weapons kept the gameplay fresh and gave us a welcome change from a generic hack n slash genre. For those who crave for a good hack n slash game, this is a must play title for them. Since the content is vast and the game is intriguing that you won't get bored of this game.


Beautiful art with melodious tracks

spycid | June 11, 2013 | Review of Bastion [Playfire]

Bastion is an hand drawn RPG action game with a unique atmosphere which will make you immerse into the game and love every moment of it. The gameplay has RPG elements despite being an Action Adventure game. It is a must play for every gamer who enjoys unique environment with melodious tracks.


Not the sequel I was expecting

spycid | June 11, 2013 | Review of Alan Wake's American Nightmare

The original Alan Wake was a true psychological thriller game, however this game is more of an action third person shooter and deviated a lot from it's predecessor. Despite the game being a spin-off this game fails to reach the standards which was set sky high by Remedy Entertainment. Still if you are an Alan Wake fan like me then you would definitely want to try this.


Beautiful horror game after a long time

spycid | June 10, 2013 | Review of Alan Wake

There has been a dearth of good horror game in gaming universe for a long time. This game fills up all those voids with an intense gameplay, gripping storyline and marvellous music. It is a must play for all psychological thriller and horror lovers. Best way to play is lights out and headphones in.


One of the best video games ever made

spycid | June 10, 2013 | Review of Bioshock Infinite

Bioshock Infinite is the best of the series. You don't need to play the previous games to understand the story or gameplay. However I highly recommend you to play them, atleast the first one if not the second. This game has an immersive story, amazing gameplay and it has lovely environment. The background score & music. Pay extra attention the plot and events of them. The environment is so beautiful that you will love to take a pause and gaze at the environment. This is a must play game for every true gamer.


Superb Stealth game with RPG elements

spycid | June 9, 2013 | Review of Deus Ex: Human Revolution

Deus Ex Human Revolution is a wonderful game where you can either play stealthily or just like another action adventure way. The difference is here the weapon system, combat are just way more improved and the game can be completed without killing anyone. It's a must play title for all both Stealth & RPG Action lovers.


Best sandbox game ever made

spycid | June 9, 2013 | Review of Grand Theft Auto IV

Rockstar never stops amazing us. GTA IV is another example of that. It is a wonderful sandbox game where you can do a whole lot of stuff. Not only that but the gameplay, storyline, soundtracks are also awesome. Truly a masterpiece. Must play for all sandbox fans.


A true Old School Stealth game in a new setting

spycid | June 7, 2013 | Review of Dishonored Nexway -

Wonderful game where you can play in stealthy or action-adventure. Each mission can be completed in various ways and all of them lead to a different outcome in the ending. Best thing about the game is, it completely provides the experience of an old school stealth game. So if you are looking for a true stealth game with a great story and beautiful music, this is a must try. Even if you like to go guns ablaze then also you are welcome to try the game of the year 2012.


Forgot you

spycid | June 7, 2013 | Review of Remember Me

Despite having beautiful futuristic Neo Paris and a refreshing combat system, this game fails to gather any kind of momentum which all the hype and rumors build. A new take on action adventure often failed on linear gameplay, corridor movement and yet the game is definitely worth a try especially when such an amazing discount going on so early of it's release.


Hardest yet gratifying game

spycid | June 7, 2013 | Review of Dark Souls: Prepare to Die Edition (NA)

If you are looking for a game which will satisfy your thirst for the most brutal, hardened, depressing yet highly rewarding game, then this is the game for you. Must play for all hardcore gamers. You cannot call yourself a gamer if you haven't completed this game.


Great racing game

spycid | June 6, 2013 | Review of GRID 2

Although the game bent more towards arcade genre than sim and deviated a lot from it's predecessor, this is a good racing game for it's time. Currently there are very few good racing games out there and this game has a lot of variety in race types also. So if you are bored of playing other generic racing games, you can give this a go.
