Offers different classes and weapons. | Must Buy Fallout 3 | 35 | 100% | (+35/-) | Incredibly fun and well-made RPG | Must Buy Alice – Madness Returns | 34 | 87.0% | (+40/-6) | A fun third person 3d platformer with a beautiful atmosphere, but the game a little repetitive and the mouse/keyboard controls are frustrating. Gamepad recommended| Probably worth it X3 | 27 | 100% | (+27/-0) | A very fun space combat game with quite a learning curve, similar to Freespace. Terran conflict is the best of the bunch. Joystick recommended for added immersion. | Must Buy Terran Conflict for Space Sim fans Nuclear Dawn | 5 | 77.8% | (+7/-2) | A unique hybrid of RTS and FPS mechanics, although both the shooting and strategy aspects are quite mediocre themselves. | Possibly worth it Modern Warfare 3 | 4 | 100% | (+4/-) | For UK Residents, the Amazon version is much cheaper, and can be activated on Steam. | You already know whether you want this game or not Dungeons | -8 | 0% | (+0/-8) | Not a particularly great RPG. The core mechanics are a bit off and dialogue is uninteresting.| Not worth it.
One thing to note is that, given that today is Christmas, there wasn’t quite as much activity on this thread, so you’ll notice that some games are missing because I couldn’t find enough comments pertaining to those games. Sorry about that, but hopefully this list still helps.
