Achilles Legends Untold Early Access reviewed on PC by Jarrett Green. Narration by Kerry Palmer. There’s no reason that, in a good amount of time, Achilles: Legends Untold couldn’t turn into an action-adventure game of mythological proportions.

Trek to Yomi reviewed by Travis Northup on PC, also available on Xbox and PlayStation.

Galactic Civilizations 4 reviewed on PC by Kris Cornelisse. After completing a few campaigns I’m left struggling to find reasons to come back to Galactic Civilizations IV.
