Lara Croft GO – Games of 2015

GO Team is onto something. They got to the core of Hitman, but I wasn’t sure how distilling down Tomb Raider would turn out. I figured it would be too slow or other turn-based issues would get in the way of it actually feeling like Tomb Raider. Before the end of the first stage it… Continue reading

Just Cause 3 – Games of 2015
