Sid Meier’s Civilization IV. Fireaxis Games (2005) PC

I really didn’t get on with Civilization III, it wasn’t a bad game, but it was fucking boring in end-game and the difficulty was a bit all over the place. So rather than dwell on it, and let CIV3 sour

Sid Meier’s Civilization III. Fireaxis Games. (2001) PC

I wouldn’t say I am the biggest fan of the Civilization series, I had CIV2 on the PS1 (god that was chuggy), I had Revolutions which was a fairly decent stripped back version on the consoles, and I dabbled in

Total War: Warhammer. Creative Assembly (2016) PC

Officailly known as Total War: Warhammer the cool kids simply refer to it as Total Warhammer. We all know that Total Warhammer is a 10056% better name. Now you may have noticed I am on a bit of a strategy

XCOM: Enemy Within. Fireaxis Games (2013) Xbox 360

Woop a reboot! I love a reboot… I think. If you’re confused by the title this is the full expansion DLC version of XCOM: Enemy Unknown (released 2012). It is the same game just with a few different soldiers, some

UFO: Afterlife. Altar Games (2007) PC

Phew that was exhausting! About 100 hours has been poured into UFO: Aftermath, Aftershock and Afterlife. The series is a little mixed, and with a 3rd game trying the UFO: Apocalypse route going into the game I am skeptical.

UFO: Aftershock. Altar Games (2005) PC

UFO: Aftershock is the sequel to UFO: Aftermath, and is not officially related to UFO: Enemy Unknown (X-Com: UFO Defense). Interestingly, the 3rd game in the series, Afterlight, is not a sequel to Aftershock in terms of the story. Of all

UFO: Aftermath. Altar Games (2003) PC

UFO: Aftermath started off  “The Dreamland Chronicles: Freedom Ridge” by Mythos Games, but was eventually abandoned. It is an homage to X-Com, and is partly based on the abandoned X-Com: Genesis. It is *NOT* officially related to UFO: Enemy Unknown (X-Com:

Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic. Bioware (2003) XBOX

There are games that come along every now and then that have blown my socks off. Silent Hill 2 is one of them, Final Fantasy VI is another. With that, Knights of the Old Republic is firmly in the socks blown asunder camp. I

Fallout 2, Interplay (1998) PC

I struggle with the Fallout series; with Fallout 1 it felt like it should be a good game, but it was broken in too many places. Fallout 3 thought that 15 hours of tunnel schellping was a fun thing, and was

Fallout, Interplay (1997) PC

Fallout: A Post Nuclear Role Playing Game to give it it’s full name, spawned a pretty popular series, but other than Fallout 3, I have never actually finished one of these. So, once more into the breach, and let us
