Delivering on the dream of a Star Trek VR experience, Star Trek: Bridge Crew is a fantastic new game for anyone with a VR setup. You might want more, but what is available will put a smile on your face and keep it there for hours.

The magic of Star Trek isn’t the ship, but in the crew, and Star Trek: Bridge Crew nails that mechanic perfectly. What might otherwise appear as a cold and stationary experience becomes amazing when played with friends. While the campaign isn’t as long as we were hoping, the ongoing voyages provide enough randomization to keep us busy. As I push the wobbly AI out of the airlock, allow me to heartily recommend Star Trek: Bridge Crew — it’s downright “fascinating”.

Star Trek: Bridge Crew is a triumphant recreation of what it means to be on the bridge of an Enterprise-caliber ship from the classic sci-fi universe. If you play with friends then you’re bound to have an amazing time full of laughs, stress, and action. Playing alone is tough, but doable The bulk of your time will likely be spent with the randomized Ongoing Voyages mode since the campaign is brief and shallow. If you’re searching for a game that captures the esoteric and cerebral nature of Star Trek, though, then you’ll be a bit disappointed.

A thrilling, authentic recreation of Star Trek that brings out the team player in everyone. Just a shame it’s such a pain to set-up.

Star Trek fans can’t miss this experience, but the lacking content and some problems leave a bad taste in our mouths.

Steel Division: Normandy 44 PC Review Scores

Steel Division: Normandy 44 is a real-time strategy video game being developed by Eugen Systems and published by Paradox Interactive, due to be released on May 23, 2017.

Rating: 81/100 – Based on 5 Critics

Steel Division: Normandy ’44 succeeds both at being an entertaining real-time tactics game and a compelling simulation of historical combat, which is a remarkable combination. Not to get ahead of things, but playing this excellent World War II game makes it hard not to get excited about the potential of Steel Division: Stalingrad ’42 or Rome ’43. Future games or expansions might even smooth out Normandy ‘44’s small drawbacks, specifically its occasionally overwhelming amount of detail and lack of context to its huge number of options, but its successes wildly outweigh its failures.

IGN Spain
Steel Division: Normandy 44 is one of the most interesting games about IIWW. Eugen Systems has created a really complex mix of tabletop wargames and RTS.

While there’s a distinct appeal to Steel Division: Normandy 44, this is a game that caters to a particular niche audience of hardcore strategy fans. Its depiction of the Second World War focuses on realism, with a reliance on ambushes and weight of fire in infantry combat and a surprising fragility to the tanks, but this difficult to master game won’t be for everyone. There’s some clever ideas in the shifting front lines, the fog of war and Battlegroups, but there’s problems with the presentation and some elements that feel unbalanced.
Steel Division: Normandy 44 stole dozens of hours from my life and this trend will continue. It’s a pretty good strategy game. The entry threshold is high, difficulty level is even higher and all these frustrations… But you forget about all that because online matches are so damn exciting that you want to play another and another, and another! Eugen Systems succeeded in creating a very good tactical RTS aimed at online gampelay.

A solidly enjoyable title that has balance issues that need patching but otherwise a good investment for fans of the genre.

Constructor 2017 PC Review

Genres: Strategy, Real-Time, General

I remember this game back in 2OOO when I was 9 I used t0 g0 to my friends house, his family own a PC, nothing fancy but it ran Constructor and even Sims, this was vvhen I first witness this game, at this time, I vvas still a console peasent, I had a PS1

Rating: 50/100

To my joy 0ne day I came across Constructor in the st0re that was for my Console, I had my pocket money and bought it, this_game is something I used to play a lot of, at this time, I had a great deal of trouble reading, I would lose_so many games, I s00n learn that having a Brickyard meant getting a mission to build a sodding park, something that always made_me lose.

Oneday, wearing a coat_that had n0 zip or buttom, it had a Kangar00 pouch, I bent over forward to pick something up, snapping my game in half, I cried, at this_time I was 11 ( SO NO JUDGING YOU ♥♥♥♥♥)

It took me a couple of months, 0f saving and looking, but I bought a new copy, of cause at this, PS2 was released, I was even more careful, But I did managed to break that plastic case, but I still got my game.

For the first time, I’m enjoying this game on a PC, sure I do ovvn the G0G version, but Dosbox be a pain my♥♥♥♥♥♥ I wish I could say I felt like a child getting_my hands on a game I have lost, after many delays when this game finally reached it’s release date, it was set to unl0ck at 6PM BST, my resolve was shattered, they even switch the game to release_even early, I still delayed t0 get it, I didn’t get it till 8PM

for a game with so many delays, s0me of them because System 3 were scared to release due to other games, this could had d0ne with a tad bit more vvork.

The AI are the same as alvvays, when playing vs 3 AI they all gang up on you, some 0f the maps felt smaller and missing_some estates ( I might have a look at this)

A recent match vs medium, s0me how the AI managed to completely_mess themselves up, they didn’t_bothered to repair their pr0perties, sure I did rob them 0f some money, but this shouldn’t of allowed this AI to more or less kill themselves.

At one point the AI went down to a single f0reman and Worker, the others all died in the explosions, hell the total amount of estates this AI ovvn they most of only used 3O% of it.

I will not speak of the Multiplayer, I haven’t played it, yet.

As it stands, I can’t rec0mmend it to nevv players, to the ones that once owned this_game? Sure come and get it. I hope System3 works on this_game to get it up to a decent_condition

Rakuen – PC Review Scores

Genre: Adventure, Indie, RPG

Rakuen is a story-based adventure game about a little Boy who becomes bored with living in a hospital, and eventually asks his mother if she’ll escort him to the fantasy world from his favorite storybook. Throughout the game, the Boy begins to learn more about the patients who live around him. They each have their own secrets and struggles that are mysteriously tied to the strange hospital. In helping those around him, the Boy deals with questions about empathy, hope, and what it means to leave behind a legacy by coming to terms with his own story.

Rating: 89/100 – Based on 4 Critics

Don’t be fooled by its unassuming facade: Rakuen is a one-of-a-kind adventure that brings tears and smiles in equal measure.

Rakuen gives full range to the power of its truth. It’s thoughtful, beautiful, sad and funny. It presents itself as a childlike narrative game, but it offers unsettling and affirming truths about the way we live. I feel privileged to have spent time with its characters, with their weaknesses and their strengths. This is an extraordinary game.
Like “To the Moon” Rakuen sends you on a bittersweet journey between two worlds, emotionally charged, with clever puzzles and a beautiful soundtrack.

Rakuen offers all of the emotional themes expected from a game inspired by the excellent To the Moon, including a very good story, a great music, an appealing art design and interesting characters.

Portal Knights PC Review Scores

Portal Knights is an independent survival action role-playing video game developed by Keen Games and published by 505 Games.

Rating: 71/100 – Based on 3 Critics

IGN Italia
Minecraft meets an action-RPG: a bunch of nice ideas not very well implemented. Very nice graphics.

The best thing I can say about Portal Knights is that it is an effective off-shoot of the juggernaut that is Minecraft and Microsoft’s hit title could actually learn a thing or two from Keen Games’ effort here.

Quotation forthcoming.

Mages of Mystralia PC Review Scores

Mages of Mystralia is an action-adventure video game developed and published by Borealys Games and released in 2017.

Rating: 76/100 Based on 5 Critics

Marooners’ Rock
Kurt takes a look at Mages of Mystralia, will it put a spell on you, or curse you for taking the time to play it?

Hardcore Gamer
Mages of Mystralia is an energetic and clever action-RPG, set in a vibrant and colorful land with a dark history. The heart of the game is its magic system, and the puzzles for unlocking new runes and other goodies keep things from being too combat-heavy. It’s easy to get lost in spell creation, pausing battle to dip into the magic tome to tweak a few runes or throw together something new as the monsters wait patiently for you to pull your head out of the book. Zia is a fun heroine to play as, learning and growing as the story progresses, with a strong character design that never gets lost on the screen. Mystralia’s history is making trouble in the present, but with an arsenal of spell components and the ability to wire them together together to best effect, Zia has a good chance of becoming the hero the world of Mages of Mystralia didn’t realize it needed.

Game Informer
If you don’t mind taking the scenic route, Mages of Mystralia provides the unique opportunity to write your own spell book. Up until the end of the game, I was unlocking new runes that exponentially added to my magical arsenal. Piecing all of those runes into a new master spell made me feel like the most creative mage who’d ever lived, making this light-hearted adventure truly magical.

It’s a decent adventure with varied combat, cool boss battles, and semi-interesting locales. I’m going to keep at it until I’ve obtained everything there is to obtain, but even then I know I won’t have seen everything there is to see. Some of the neatest stuff possible isn’t scripted in by the designers, it’s waiting to be imagined and created by an aspiring magician.

Clocking in at a modest six hours after an average first playthrough, Mages of Mystralia still leaves much to be explored with the plethora of hidden chests, optional puzzles, and a special mage trial combat event to take part in. Though unfortunately it feels more so for the sake of clearing the way to a 100% completion rating, as opposed to needing these items for the quest. With that said, those first six hours of Mages of Mystralia stir up a lot of the same feelings as the old-school games that inspired it, offering a spirited and endearing romp with a charming mage and her impressively complex magical abilities.

Friday the 13th: The Game PC Review Scores

Friday the 13th: The Game is a survival horror video game developed by IllFonic, and published by Gun Media. It is based on the franchise of the same name owned by New Line Cinema. It was released on May 26, 2017 for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.

Rating: 77/100 Based on 3 Critics

Sure to entertain fans and newcomers alike, whether they’re looking for scares or laughs.

In spite of the occasional glitch or physics hiccup, nothing in Friday the 13th: The Game is enough of a knock against the package to keep me from preventing it. This is some of the most fun multiplayer I’ve touched in quite a while, and definitely the most fun I’ve ever had with an asymmetric multiplayer title.

IGN Spain
Friday the 13th: The Video Game, is a terrifying game based on the slasher film franchise. Despite knowing how to perfectly reproduce the atmosphere of the film, a unique game mode seems unforgivable.
