Trench caught my eye because it’s neat visuals and the idea of a shooting game based around a submarine. I’ve always been a fan of underwater environments in games, and there aren’t many games that choose it as their overall theme. However, Trench makes fantastic ...

This is a great week for beat-em-ups, with Street Fist 2 and ...
