    The game dynamics are the best improvement in the game. Structures are being built faster, and require fewer resources.

    The game's true crowning achievement: This game has excellent AI. Hands down.

    Everything is very logical and intuitive, and the developers chose the right way to gradually introduce you to more and more complex features off the game.

    The game is regressive in a sense that it doesn't bring anything new to the field of online shooters - it's as straightforward and arcadish as online shooters get, and at the same time, it's highly progressive with its incredible physics, 3D, and net code.

    The AI however is entirely customizable and also represents another good example of the programmers' efforts to make the whole game genuine.

    It is marvelous what you can get by adding great atmosphere and a good AI to a barely interactive shooter.

    It is a better game than "Diablo II" in almost every aspect (save the multiplayer and the audio - D2's audio isn't anything to write home about either), and is well worth every penny spent.

    The colors are much lighter and cheerful than in "Grim Fandango."

    As far as tactics and empire management are concerned, this is not a (much) more elaborate strategy game, and the AI does have its faults, but this is certainly an infinitely more cinematic and spectacular looking strategy game than before.

    Little things like how you need to hold your breath to shoot a sniper rifle and the use of smoke grenades, as well as the much more significant improvements that deal with the technology and the level design in general, show that Infinity Ward has invested a lot of time and effort into this project.

    A pretty engaging and challenging strategy, offering a lengthy single-player campaign in a captivating fantasy setting.

    Yes the practice mode is awesome, the multiplayer options are greatly improved and the gameplay itself has been fine-tuned. But for most people, it will come down to the songs. I am sure this set of songs will be just what the doctor ordered for the true Rock fans.

    It's a labor of love and it's fun. The variety of missions and humor mix well and should be enough to hook anyone.

    The performance is excellent, the crispy-clean 1600x1200 resolution certainly helped and the controls feel a lot more natural on the PC.

    The visuals are spectacular, the sound is awesome, the weapons and combat features are great and there's enough new stuff to keep both fans and newbies happy. Nonetheless, in terms of gameplay, Gears of War 2 hasn't moved the series forward yet, which should undoubtedly be their goal for the next installment.

    Jamming with friends to some classic tunes that span 4 decades and a variety of genres is a load of fun and a great way to waste an evening. The new features are not enough to convert anyone who can't stand rhythm games to begin with but to anyone who enjoys this kind of experience should go out and add Rock Band 2 to their library today.

    Blizzard's remarkable gift for story-telling is now embodied in yet another game. For this very reason, there are probably few people out there who won't be lured by the narrative, marvelously animated cut-scenes, stunning art direction worthy of any preceding achievement from Blizzard, in addition to the carefully crafted characters.

    I had heard that Stephen King's Misery was a love letter written to his fans. South Park: The Stick of Truth is a similar love note from Matt Stone and Trey Parker.

    The elements of flight simulation in Crimson Skies in combination with a lot of shooting and a lot of acrobatics, all wrapped in a cute story promise a great game, but the general feel of the game will be ruined if the patch doesn't appear soon.

    One of the best golf simulations that appeared in quite some time. The TrueSwing technology has been definitely perfected, making this a REAL Golf simulation.

    The 3D engine looks unbelievably good! The surroundings are impeccable, and bear a surreal and depressive atmosphere. All the objects and buildings look just as great.

    There are enough challenges and puzzles in the game to make you burn you brain cells and sore your trigger-finger.

    The incredible playability, loads of details and hidden features on each level, twenty good songs, a lot of movies about each rider in the game and the level editor really make this CD worth having.

    There are few successful fantasy RPG, and the Warlords are a quality product. It will enchant every fan of fantasy games as well as RPG/FRP, and strategies.

    Linear gameplay can be a turn off… AI glitches. Ineffective spells, needs more weapons (relative con's - it's a matter of taste).

    It actually lives up to the hype, and even surpass is it if you can believe that.

    A stunning techincal (gameplay) achievement that may be lacking a decent script to truly lead the way into the era of interactive PC movies.

    The unexpected twists and findings will help you really get into this title and see it as a worthy challenge, ideal for long winter nights... Beautifully conceived and just as well executed.
