Iron Man and X-O Manowar in Heavy Metal DOS review

The culmination of 10 years of movies in the Marvel Cinematic Universe has finally arrived at the cinemas with Avengers: Infinity War. And to celebrate such an occasion, let’s take a look at the only game released for the PC featuring the avenger that started the MCU: Iron Man (and some other character from Valiant Comics).

Expendable for PC review

DISCLAIMER: I’ve received a free copy of this game through my Steam Curator page, so I won’t blame anyone if this review is taken with a pinch of salt. However, I promise to be as objective as possible.

Some games usually pass beneath the radar (or I’ve never heard of), but that doesn’t mean that they don’t deserve to be featured here on Retro Freak Reviews (and I’m sure you’ve read the disclaimer above). Anyway, today’s feature is Expendable.

Syndicate DOS review

Well, this retrospective sure is going slow, isn’t it? Sorry for taking so long, but because of recent work issues, I no longer have a lot of free time. And it happened all of a sudden, without notice, so I couldn’t cancel anything or plan around it.

Then again, a lot of popular gaming characters have humble beginnings, like probably the manliest character in videogame history having started in a shareware title. And believe it or not, I’m talking about Duke Nukem.

Mean Streets review

And again we’re taking a look at a game series, that like many others, started in the 80s or 90s (80s in this particular case), still continues to this day and became famous around its 3rd entry. But this time, it features perhaps the most famous private detective in computer gaming: Tex Murphy. I’m obviously talking about Mean Streets.

Star Wars Jedi Knight review

Well, the problem with the Star Wars game I reviewed a few weeks ago, is that it left me wanting more Star Wars action. And although I did enjoy The Last Jedi, it simply wasn’t enough. So, taking a closer look at my Steam list, I found a game I tried to play unsuccessfully on my laptop about a month ago (but successfully on my new desktop, fortunately). And it had everything I’m looking for in a Star Wars game. I’m talking about Jedi Knight.
