Update (7th december 2010)

Sorry again for the longer wait.
I’ve realized I will need to update more often. When I put it off the list of new additions grows too big and it’s extremely hard to catch up once I start to fall behind.

2010 GAMES

Castle Vox
Castle Vox takes the base of Risk, adds a couple of new elements, and produces a slightly unique and entertaining strategy experience. (…) Finally, the game features robust multiplayer matchmaking and is available for all three major operating systems. Castle Vox is strongly recommended for all players who thought Risk could use a bit more depth.8.5 from Out of Eight website

Worms Reloaded
This is the biggest, prettiest Worms, yet. Strategy fans will find one of the most fun multiplayer games around, and there is plenty to do on your own, as well. Few games offer the chance to wield a weapon called the Buffalo of Lies — don’t miss yours.8.5 from IGN

Zombie Pirates
Zombie Pirates takes the Plants vs Zombies concept and adds ships, water and pirates to great effect.(…)While the main story will take several hours to complete, there are also special challenges to partake in, achievements to earn, diamonds to collect and items to buy that will bump up your ship. Every now and again a game comes along with utterly surprises me, and Zombie Pirates has done just that. It’s fantastic fun, and well worth checking out.8.0 from Gamezebo

Conquest: Divide and Conquer
onquest: Divide and Conquer reduces the commonly complex strategy genre into its basic elements, and the result is a usually entertaining game. (…)While Conquest might lack the depth of rival strategy games, the reduced mechanics do work well for quick online competitions.7.5 from Out of Eight website

Close Combat – Last Stand Arnhem
Close Combat – Last Stand Arnhem takes a great game, makes noticeable improvements, and comes up a bit short of “must buy” status.7.5 from Out of Eight website

Ancient Trader
With Ancient Trader, you come for the graphics and stay for the gameplay, at least for a little while. (…) Despite some limited features and a feeling of repetition after a couple of games, I enjoyed looking at and playing Ancient Trader more than some other trading games. For $10, the casual experience is worth the price of admission. Just watch out for the Kraken.7.5 from Out of Eight website

The Sims 3: Late Night
The expansion packs that have been released so far for The Sims 3 have been meatier than expansions from the previous iterations of the franchise, and Late Night continues the tradition. It really raises the bar for what we expect out of a Sims expansion.7.5 from IGN

Grotesque Tactics – Evil Heroes
Grotesque Tactics: Evil Heroes is an entertaining RPG adventure, offering both humorous parody and solid gameplay in equal measure. At roughly twelve hours in length, there is plenty of quest-running on offer, and RPG fanatics will adore the game references.8.0 from Gamezebo

Nightmare Adventures: The Witch’s Prison
The story and the puzzles are more than enough reason for you to be downloading The Witch’s Prison as we speak, but the game’s difficulty level deserves mention, too. Items’ descriptions provide just enough information to point you in the right direction without clubbing you over the head with solutions, while hints will spells things out plainly, but only if you want them to. The Witch’s Prison does its best to make sure you succeed, without diminishing the overall challenge in the slightest – but it makes sure to slip in a few chuckles here and there, too.9.0 from Gamezebo

Kaptain Brawe: A Brawe New World
Kaptain Brawe is a quintessential point and click adventure: it looks beautiful, has a compelling story filled with interesting characters, and it’s plagued with puzzles that feel more like you’re guessing what the developer was thinking rather than doing anything logical. And even with the casual difficulty level, these puzzles make the game unfriendly to players new to the genre. But for adventure game veterans, there’s plenty to love, from the unique look and setting, to the intriguing plot and great sense of humor.8.0 from Gamezebo

Nancy Drew: Shadow at the Water’s Edge
Shadow at the Water’s Edge’s gameplay and presentation are as solid as ever; exactly what fans of the series have come to expect. Graphics hold their own with other current adventure games, and dialogue is all voiced with competent voice actors. (…)The game is recommended for players aged 10 and over due to some scary moments, but it’s certainly accessible to adults and kids alike and is a great choice for child and parent to play together. And although Nancy is without a doubt one of the best female role models in gaming, her games definitely aren’t just for girls to enjoy.8.0 from Gamezebo

With Nimbus, Noumenon Games delivers a creative, accessible, and intelligently designed title. Its style of gameplay fuses twitch action with puzzle and racing elements and offers challenges that, while sometimes frustrating, remain satisfying all the way through. With numerous reasons to replay stages, an appealing visual style and catchy electronic soundtrack, there’s enough here to be able to overlook the minor control issues and enjoy the ride.8.0 from IGN

Doc Clock: The Toasted Sandwich of Time
Doc Clock: The Toasted Sandwich of Time is as inventive as it is humorous, providing clever gameplay based around the assembly of bridges, vehicles and a time-machine. (…) Doc Clock is really clever stuff, bursting with personality and neat ideas. A few little niggles here and there mar an otherwise cool and sophisticated indie release, and one that you should definitely considering delving into.8.0 from Gamezebo

Mystery Legends: The Phantom of the Opera
It’s been a long time since I’ve been this excited about a hidden object game but Mystery Legends: The Phantom of the Opera is easily one of the best I’ve ever played. It may well be the best. I don’t know what else I can say about it – and I don’t know why you’re still here reading this review. Go! Play! Enjoy! Just don’t forget to come back and thank me later.9.5 from Gamezebo

Heart’s Medicine – Season One
All in all GameHouse Eindhoven is on a very good way to redefine the time management genre. Both the last titles of the Emily-series and Heart’s Medicine prove that connecting time management elements, puzzles, hidden objects, and a great storyline closely results in a very satisfying and original gaming experience. If general traditions such as fixed shifts (levels) and upgrades would be abandoned for more coherent and free gameplay Heart’s Medicine could really become a very interesting and original series in the future. As of now it already is one of the best options you can find in the time management genre.9.0 from Gamezebo

Fractal is a fantastic puzzler, providing thoughtful, slow-paced action that’s perfect for kicking back and unwinding with. It will certainly provide a challenge, but is also simple enough to entice more casual players.9.0 from Gamezebo

Women’s Murder Club: Little Black Lies
There’s no one big flaw to point to in Little Black Lies, but there are plenty of tiny irritants. Fortunately, the sharp plot, inventive puzzles, and good voice acting are enough to smooth over the rough spots.9.0 from Gamezebo

Tulula: Legend of a Volcano
Tulula: Legend of a Volcano blends HOG, puzzle and city building gameplay (…)With eleven chapters to progress through, Tulula is a fairly long title in the point-and-click space, lasting upwards of six hours, depending on your dependence (or lack thereof) on hints and puzzle “skips.” Each element of the gameplay may have been seen elsewhere, but when combined, it all feels new and fresh, especially with the unique graphical theme. If you’re a fan of the many elements represented here, the game is sure to please.8.0 from Gamezebo

Youda Farmer 2
re are a lot of charming details to be found, and it is very rewarding to realize how complex the game really is. Different levels require different strategies and it might take some time to learn those, but it is definitely worth it. All in all Youda Farmer 2: Save the Village offers a very satisfying gaming experience. Sustaining the core of its prequel, but solving major issues and adding logical and welcome improvements and features prove to be a reliable recipe for successful and high quality sequels. Help that small village against Big Boss and enjoy this challenging and rather unique time management game.8.0 from Gamezebo

Great Migrations
Great Migrations is a line drawing game, not unlike Flight Control on the iPod/iPad. You’ll guide animals from one side of the screen to the other by painting a line for them to follow with your mouse. You’ll avoid predators and other dangers while trying to take advantage of things like wind to aid you on getting all the animals migrated safely8.0 from Gamezebo

Farm Tribe
In the end Farm Tribe still might be the ideal game for people who dislike both the lack of specific tasks in the Virtual Villagers series and the pressure and rush in time management games, although there is a lot of room left for improvement. Graphics and sounds could be a lot more polished, and at times it would have been better if there were more things to do, but all in all the pace and the number of features of Farm Tribe are satisfying. If you are looking for a relaxing version of Ranch Rush with a bit of mystery this might be exactly your game.8.0 from Gamezebo

Campfire Legends: The Babysitter
Sequel to The Hookman even scarier than its predecessor. (…)Campfire Legends: The Babysitter is an excellent sequel to a promising trilogy that leaves us shivering, and yet dying to know more.8.0 from Gamezebo

Mystery Trackers: The Void
Mystery Trackers is a polished and enjoyable hidden object adventure that should hit all the right notes with fans of the genre.8.0 from Gamezebo

Jewel Quest: The Sleepless Star
In short, Jewel Quest: The Sleepless Star is a great addition to the Jewel Quest match-3 franchise. Like its predecessors, it offers weeks and weeks of gameplay for those who want to achieve everything there is to unlock. The American frontier setting adds some freshness to the series too, and the interesting story and top-notch presentation make you want to stick around to see what happens next.8.0 from Gamezebo

The Island Castaway
The detailed graphics, long list of items and extra challenges makes the price tag worth it. It’s a polished product, and for one targeted at casual gamers, it offers lots in the way of questing and exploration. There are natives to befriend, ancient statues to collect, trees to fell, tools to acquire (and upgrade), bartering to do, caves and forests to venture into, watermelons to eat and mysteries to solve. You’ll spend hours playing The Island Castaway. The tribe has spoken.8.0 from Gamezebo

Columbus: Ghost of the Mystery Stone
Ghost of the Mystery Stone may not have many puzzles or minigames, but the ones it does have are well-executed and inventive – even if they don’t always make a whole lot of sense. With a mere 30 days before he turns to stone and a long ocean voyage ahead of him, Columbus probably shouldn’t be taking time out to paint an accurate rendition of his ship the Pinta, but it makes for a fun minigame, so who cares? Columbus: Ghost of the Mystery Stone is light on story and puzzle-solving, but brings real style and artistry to its object searches.8.0 from Gamezebo

Knightfall: Death and Taxes does a wonderful job of infusing match-3 gameplay with RPG elements. The action can become rather tricky at times, but overall this is a journey definitely worth taking.(…) It’s one of the freshest match-3 puzzlers I’ve played in a while, and you’ll most likely find yourself hooked by its challenging gameplay and charming visuals8.0 from Gamezebo

Paradise Beach 2: Around the World
In the end we can safely recommend Paradise Beach 2 to all fans of building simulations. Minor issues aside, the game features a highly entertaining and diverse story mode, which serves players who love challenge and those who prefer a relaxed pace at the same time. The latter ones can disregard the timer and develop their resorts at personal leisure, while the former ones will welcome the high pressure that ensues the effort to beat any level in gold time. Give it a shot and see if you are a born resort developer.8.0 from Gamezebo

Victorian Mysteries: Woman in White
Victorian Mysteries: Woman in White is an excellent game. It starts strong, finishes strong and never overstays its welcome. Puzzle fans may find it a little lightweight, but the fast pace, engaging story and exceptionally high level of production make this one a winner. If you’re a hidden object fan, this is one game you won’t want to miss.8.0 from Gamezebo

Heroes of Kalevala
Heroes of Kalevala mixes building and RPG elements with the match-3 genre to great effect, and there are many hours of enjoyable grid-searching and village building to be found. Make sure to check out the demo if you’re at all interested.8.0 from Gamezebo

Trinklit Supreme
Trinklet is very much an old-school casual game: easy-in, instant gratification gameplay with no way to “fail,” perfectly suited for short bursts of play8.0 from Gamezebo

If you’ve got a hankering for some Pachinko fun, this new offering from Gamecask may just do the trick. Dachinko offers ball-launching gameplay with huge addictive qualities and a very distinct graphical style.(…)Dachinko provides plenty of addictive Pachinko gaming with a lovely authentic feel. Pick up a copy and prepare to say “just one more game” a fair few times8.0 from Gamezebo

Cooking Dash 3: Thrills & Spills
As more and more Dash games are released, I approach them more and more skeptically, doubting whether they can actually build upon the gameplay that I love. But Cooking Dash 3 does it, and does it wonderfully. I’ve had way more fun playing this game than I’ve had playing some console games that cost almost 10 times more. If you’re a hardcore gamer who has never tried a Dash game, I really encourage you to give Cooking Dash 3 a try. I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised at what you find. If you’re already a Dash fan, then this is a must-buy.8.5 from IGN

Bejeweled 3
Another entry in the biggest casual puzzle series.

Poker Night at the Inventory
It comes with all the polish I’d expect from Telltale, and while it only features Texas Hold ’em, is a really entertaining way to kill some time, especially if you want those TF2 unlocks. It may not be the best poker game out there, but it is definitely the funniest. And, as most people will tell you, a little humor goes a long way.8.0 from IGN

Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit
Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit is pure over-the-top driving entertainment. The cars and environments are gorgeous, the crashes are spectacular, and the new Autolog feature breathes new life into the time-honored tradition of video game competition among friends. The single-player races can become somewhat repetitive and there are some presentation issues, but overall, Hot Pursuit is a blast. If you’re looking for a high-octane racer that grabs on tight but doesn’t take itself too seriously, give this one a shot.9.0 from IGN

Super Meat Boy
Super Meat Boy is one of the best modern platformers. It’s infuriating, exasperating, and arduous, but it’s also delightful, thrilling, and hilarious. The NES games of yore were simultaneously simpler and more challenging than today’s games, a quality perfectly emulated here. Invite some friends over and pass the controller around — you’re gonna need all the help you can get.9.0 from IGN

If you like sweet loot, hacking things to death, looking at beautiful landscapes and laughing at good writing, you might want to pick up DeathSpank. However, although the game shines in many areas, it does have its flaws. Questing can turn into a noticeable chore, and I would have gladly substituted some of the “go fetch” missions in favor of some more brainteasers. Still, DeathSpank is a fun adventure worth exploring.8.5 from IGN

DeathSpank: Thongs of Virtue
If you enjoyed the first DeathSpank, you’re gonna love Thongs of Virtue. It’s just as addictive, just as pretty, and I dare say it’s even a little funnier. Fans of quests and, more importantly, sidequests will find more missions here than they know what to do with. Hopefully this won’t be the last we see of DeathSpank.8.5 from IGN

Bit.Trip Beat
An appealing retro presentation mixed with an old-school challenge and addictive gameplay makes Bit. Trip Beat an easy choice for long-time gamers looking for something new that still conjures up a sense of nostalgia. It’s a rhythm game that requires fast reflexes and, even on its normal difficulty setting, can be a punishing experience. With time and dedication, you’ll be able to better appreciate the finely crafted challenges Gaijin delivers. The length of the game’s stages can wear on your patience and often there’s seemingly too much visual noise for the game’s own good, but that’s no reason to pass on this clever title.7.5 from IGN

Zen Bound 2
Even though the mouse controls for the PC version can be a bit fussy, Zen Bound 2 is still a worthwhile puzzler to unwind with after a stressful day.7.5 from IGN

Fans of character action titles should pull out their virtual wallets without hesitation, but otherwise, Shank might just be too sharp to handle.7.0 from IGN

FIA World Rally Championship
It’s no Richard Burns Rally and nor does it hold a light to Codemasters’ DiRT games, but WRC is a surprisingly enjoyable take on the sport that gets the fundamentals right. It’s a shame that its often excellent and consistently exciting driving model is hidden under layers of turgid presentation and uninspired visuals, but those dedicated enough to see through it all will be as happy as pigs in mud.7.0 from IGN
