Great War Nations: The Spartans (PC)

Great War Nations: The Spartans review (PC)

Reviewed on June 09, 2008

I thought this was supposed to be a historical RTS. You know, based on actual history. That's what it sells itself as, anyway...But I'm reasonably certain none of the ancient civilizations of the Mediterranean had the power to throw magical fireballs.

Half-Life: Opposing Force (PC)

Half-Life: Opposing Force review (PC)

Reviewed on June 08, 2008

My least-favorite segment of Half-Life was the journey through the border world Xen at the end, only because the human factor had been taken out of the equation, and battling the far less intelligent alien grunts got old after a while. Much of Opposing Force more or less feels like that entire sequence, only set in the Black Mesa facility itself. The good news is that the action is kept fairly interesting throughout thanks to some new (tougher) alien baddies to fight (whom I later learned are not from Xen, but from… uh, somewhere else). The game is simply never as exciting or action-packed as the original often was.

Half-Life (PC)

Half-Life review (PC)

Reviewed on June 01, 2008

There’s a surprise around every corner, be it a new enemy, a new platforming challenge, or some new method of simply scaring the piss out of you, like watching a scientist get sucked into a hole in the wall, only to see him re-emerge in pieces a moment later. Take out any five-minute segment of Half-Life and it probably wouldn’t seem like anything particularly special – you have to play it all at once to fully understand just how well each piece compliments the next, how it all adds up to one nearly seamless FPS experience with rarely a single dull moment, or even one that feels like what you’ve already been through. It is truly greater than the sum of its parts.

The Immortals of Terra: A Perry Rhodan Adventure (PC)

The Immortals of Terra: A Perry Rhodan Adventure review (PC)

Reviewed on May 28, 2008

Perry Rhodan, for the uninitiated (or rather for those who haven't Googled his name for review purposes), is the star of a forty year old German space opera. Beginning life in print, the series is now a massive phenomena in its native land, spawning TV shows, Graphic Novels and now, a point and click adventure game.

Sam & Max Episode 4 - Abe Lincoln Must Die (PC)

Sam & Max Episode 4 - Abe Lincoln Must Die review (PC)

Reviewed on May 28, 2008

I had been interested in the Sam & Max games for at least a year, thanks to EmP’s reviewing monopoly on the series. Through a succession of AIM chats, I gained further insight into the titles’ history: the brilliance of the script, the difficulty of the puzzles, and the varying connections between them, among other things. Still, what he told me only scraped the surface. He revealed no answers, no spoilers – just enough to hold my interest. As such, it was his confidence that Abe Linco...

Sherlock Holmes: Nemesis (PC)

Sherlock Holmes: Nemesis review (PC)

Reviewed on May 28, 2008

Arsène Lupin and Sherlock Holmes face off not in a book, but in an adventure game that encompasses all staples of the point-and-click genre, and manages to remain strictly faithful to the source material at the same time.

Bazooka Cafe (PC)

Bazooka Cafe review (PC)

Reviewed on May 26, 2008

Bazooka Cafe seems like a strange moniker for either a video game or a restaurant. Once you see the racks on these women, though, even a howitzer sounds like a huge understatement. When Hideyuki Mizuno leaves the corporate world behind to take over his ailing father's eatery, he doesn't know anything about the biz, but he is excited to uphold the most important reputation of the establishment. All the waitresses must be stacked. Yes, this adults-only adventure was designed with a spec...

Solitaire (PC)

Solitaire review (PC)

Reviewed on May 26, 2008

The word solitaire is actually a generic term referring to an entire set of solitary playing card games, and, until recently, solitaire was known as patience. Those pesky Brits still call it patience because of their illogical resistance to the superior American method of doing things. Microsoft's choice for their stock game is Klondike, which is the most known solitaire game. Klondike is an ideal beginner's solitaire with its simple rules and ubiquity.

Minesweeper (PC)

Minesweeper review (PC)

Reviewed on May 26, 2008

In this world there are two types of people: those who adore Minesweeper and those who detest Minesweeper. There isn't a whole lot of middle ground. Like Solitaire, Minesweeper is an infamous time waster which is included in every version of Microsoft Windows since its inception in the early 1980s. True to its name, Minesweeper simulates a hunt for mines, but, instead of a metal detector, you are armed with numeric hints as to where the mines are located in a manner somewhat similar to Battleshi...

FreeCell (PC)

FreeCell review (PC)

Reviewed on May 26, 2008

One of the alluring aspects of card games is the mystery due to the cards' unknown value when placed face down. This reduces most card games to games of chance; while skill is involved, the outcome is mostly due to what hand one is dealt. However, Microsoft's FreeCell's is based on a bold premise: all the cards are face up.

Theme Hospital (PC)

Theme Hospital review (PC)

Reviewed on May 21, 2008

Bullfrog have been no strangers to strategy games, producing hit titles such as Theme Park, Populous and Dungeon Keeper, but this is a different take on the genre altogether. Managing hospitals without the stress, the A&E bloodshed and patients that love to sue isn’t what you see released every week. Here you have hospitals infiltrated by patients with humorous illnesses caused by equally ridiculous symptoms, but this aside, Theme Hospital is no doddle. A title focusing more on depth than breadt...

The Golden Horde is an entertaining RTS that may not revolutionise the genre, but certainly enriches it a bit with experience and equipment systems.

Jack Keane (PC)

Jack Keane review (PC)

Reviewed on May 10, 2008

"This is Monkey Island done right, at last," the box proudly proclaims. It's somewhat appropriate that the first comparison to the iconic adventure series would be made before you even start the game, given the parallels. Still, it's high praise indeed, and appropriate to boot. While some might argue that Monkey Island was done right a long time ago, Jack Keane is certainly a fitting reminder of times long past.

Sam & Max 205: What's New, Beelzebub? review (PC)

Reviewed on May 09, 2008

Let's get the forewarning over with now: if you've not been playing Season 2, then the end chapter is not the place to start. In fact, you shouldn't really be reading this: I just spoiled the ending of 203 by revealing the death of the villain.

Utawarerumono review (PC)

Reviewed on May 03, 2008

Utawarerumono doesn’t start off particularly promising, and you’d be forgiven in thinking that, based upon its archetype-ridden beginnings, it would drown in a flood of clichés well before it hits endgame. But you would be largely mistaken.

Sins of a Solar Empire (PC)

Sins of a Solar Empire review (PC)

Reviewed on May 02, 2008

It’s not uncommon for a game to end with hundreds of ships on screen at once, engaged in constant combat while each player struggles for dominance. Frankly, the hours you’ve invested in this game only help to heighten the emotions brought about from this final conflict’s outcome. The disappointment can be overwhelming; that you could come this far and fail at the last second doesn’t seem possible. On the other hand, the sense of satisfaction gained from a narrow victory is one of the most gratifying I’ve yet to experience in a game. Either way, it’s an epic fight.
