About Florin

I am an avid gamer and a passionate reviewer, with three years of experience in this line of work. I've worked for Games32 and during those three years, I've written hundreds of previews and reviews for both PC and console games. The website was unfortunately revamped and now offers casual games, but some of my articles still exist on the developers' websites. Before working as a game reviewer, I’ve played competitive Starcraft. I won the Romanian Championship 4 times in 8 editions and I won the Balkanic Cup with the national team. I know what gaming is and I can relate to both rookies and pros.

Madden NFL 13 Captures What Football is About

This year it will be particularly difficult for cynical players to claim that if you’ve played one Madden you’ve played them all, because Madden NFL 13 promises to be something different. Naturally, the game doesn’t stray from the core concepts that make football popular and doesn’t change anything that would compromise the game’s realism. What [...]

Review of Iron Brigade: Turn the Tide of War

Tower defense games as we know them are here to stay, but every now and then we are presented with a title that revolutionizes the genre.

There is a broader range of colors besides black and wide in Sleeping Dogs and complex characters are making this story driven title shine.

Hybrid Game Review: a New Third-person Shooter Experience Awaits

Aliens and humans gunning each other down is a concept that third-person fans are familiar with, but 5th Cell’s take is truly innovative in Hybrid. The company famous for the Scribblenauts doesn’t reinvent the wheel in their latest release but has it spin in a way that will charm and puzzle many newcomers. In the [...]

Unveil the Brilliant Storytelling and Intense Action in Persona 4 Arena

Even if we were to describe Persona 4 Arena as an amazing fighting game, we would do it a grave and gratuitous injustice, because this title is much more than that. While being an honored member of the aforementioned genre, it includes enough RPG elements and a cohesive story that makes it transcend the barriers. [...]

The Light of Hope is All But Extinguished in Deadlight

I haven’t played Limbo until everyone was talking about it and I promised myself not to make that mistake again with Deadlight. While Tequila Works’ take on this genre fails to match the depth and excitement of Limbo, this is nevertheless one of the best action games of this year. The atmosphere is crushing and [...]

PC Game Review: Resonance Combines Four Adventures in One

Resonance will not charm its players with state of the art graphics, gorgeous sound effects or any of the technological wonders that gamers tend to take for granted. In fact it will completely ignore anything that can be even remotely associated to the aforementioned qualities that we tend to rate modern games after. Instead, it [...]

PC Game Review: Anna is Scary for all the Wrong Reasons

Zombies, ghouls and other nightmarish creatures can hardly scare savvy gamers who’ve had their fair share of confrontation with monsters. Horror games that rely more on atmosphere and build up tension gradually are more likely to bring shivers down our spines than an endless slaughtering of fiends. It is obvious that this is what the [...]
