Hearts of Iron IV: La Résistance Review

Hearts of Iron IV: La RésistanceParadox Interactive I’ve played a veritable plethora of strategy games in my life, with some of my favorites set within the highly tumultuous World War 2 era.

Sniper Elite 4 Review – The WW II Sniping Franchise Has Finally Arrived

Sniper Elite 4 Rebellion Developments My co-op partner and I had done pretty well, all things considered.
