Beneath a Steel Sky

If the set-up sounds a little similar to Mega-City One in Judge Dredd, then it’s no coincidence – Dave Gibbons (of 2000 AD and Watchmen fame) did all of the artwork for the game (including the min...

Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn Review

Too bad anything good I have to say of FFXIV:AAR stops there. The matchmaking and instancing is reminiscent of WoW's very first implementation of the LFG tool. The level of grinding involved in attemp...

Vegas Dream

Vegas Dream features multiple game modes such as slot machines, Black Jack, Roulette, and even Keno (if you didnt get enough of playing that in the bar). But what makes this game stand apart from the ...

Fallen Skies: Episode 3

This week Fallen Skies settled into the story of learning more about the aliens and how to defeat them. I knew the Ben rescue storyline would continue for a while, but having the captured alien does a...

Gun Frontier

As might be evident from some of the screenshots, Gun Frontier looks and plays a lot like some other well-known vertical scrollers, notably Flying Shark. It features the same sort of tanks, squadrons ...

Knightsquire

Knightsquire, lovingly crafted by none other than buloght (?), is apparently a game about a knight and his squire. Make that better a game about a knight, his squire and a door stuck shut. Not very ep...

Feyruna: Fairy Forest

Feyruna - Fairy Forest will henceforth be referred to, probably features Feyruna, a fabulous fairy (which could also be the name of FFF's setting mind you, but really, I like the idea of calling the f...

Retro Love: Buy a Dreamcast

By saying the scene I'm talking of the vibrant DC emulation, demo, homebrew and even amateur journalism community. On the Dreamcast you see, one can play anything from old arcade, to MegaDrive, Amiga,...

Germ Attack

Germ Attack, though, introduces an interesting and rather successful twist to the color-matching mechanics, that makes for quite a refreshing gameplay experience. Instead of placing colored candy on a...

Zombies 2

Assuming those interested in Zombies!!! 2 are already Zombies!!! players (well, they really should be, as the original game is quite required to enjoy the Z!!!2 affair), I'll get right to the new stuf...

Sweety Puzzle

Non-gamers are Nintendo's Wii little target, non-gamers were the people the PlayStation turned to gamers all those years ago and non-gamers are the market casual games are aiming for. But what are cas...

Monsters & Mercenaries Collectors Guide

The most impressive thing in the 'Monsters & Mercenaries Collectors Guide'’ though, is not it's size or the amount of useful information included. Neither are the usual photos of Golden Demon winners...

Spooks

On the plus side, the dialogs, handled with a typical multiple-choice interface, are very well written, the finale is unexpectedly unexpected, the Sierra styled interface works in an okay way, and as ...

Apprentice Deluxe

Do you know what the difference between a “review” and a “critique” is? No? Yes? Good for you. You can skip the rest of this paragraph. If your answer was no though, all I can do is provide yo...

Alan Wake

In a nutshell that is how I view the watching of the Night Springs television show that you can watch in game. Night Springs is a Twilight Zone rip-off show that you can watch on many of the televisio...

CyberNations

Ever wanted to run a country? With CyberNations, a massively multiplayer online geopolitical simulator, you can. Your country interacts with other players' countries in the general setting of a facs...

Zone 40 Wireless Gaming

Depending on who you ask the games on the Zone 40 are either really horrible or terribly crappy. Some even say the graphics on the original 2600 look better. The 11 sport interactive games play sloppy...

Demon’s Souls

Playing online can be a blast if you don't mind the occasional PVP encounter, as Black Phantom players can and will jump in on your game if you're in body form and attempt to murder you at the most in...

Maniac Mansion review

If I mention the name of the game and the score, it's obvious that all the old bastards such as myself will nod their heads in understanding and move away to other, more recent or less well known game...

Fury of the Furries review

The further you go the more time you'll spend planning on how to complete each level since often you'll find yourself with only one or two of these fur-balls available and sometimes not even through t...

Frontier (a.k.a. Elite II)

Frontier is a game of undefined genre. It's a wild mixture of simulation, strategy with adventure and role playing elements. And as much as it seems that this kind of mix'n'match would not work out it...

UFO: Enemy Unknown

UFO or X-COM as they call it in the US is a product built upon the idea that could've easily been transformed into three different, smaller games. First of, there's the strategy – Globe View – in ...
