    A well-conceived and intelligent game...The idea of total war is taken to another level, as Medieval: Total War clearly shows that total war is not all about brute force - quite the contrary.

    Great and clean turn-based strategy fun with an exciting plot, loads of realms to explore, spells to use, and enemies to ice.

    Atmosphere and dynamics of Sudden Strike are a reason why computer games remain more interesting than adventure novels.

    None of the improvements are revolutionary enough to attract people who were initially (or at some point) put off by the concept.

    Revelation is an excellent, but very difficult game, unfortunately the gamer that would fully appreciate it is, I am afraid, almost extinct. But, if you've passed a course or two in anger management and are not afraid to travel the ages of Tomahna, Spire, Haven, and Serenia with nothing more than a mouse and your functioning gray matter, you are sure to enjoy Revelation and the search for the prodigal sons of Atrus.

    Good changes to graphics engine, interesting play on the CoH world, welcome emphasis on SGs and new focus on inter-game PvP.

    The advanced diplomacy options, the solid AI and the inclusion of some realistic elements, such as weather conditions, make it truly enjoyable to play. On the other hand, its complexity will tend to bore you rather than intrigue you after some time, and I cannot tell why it is so.

    I like this game for taking the darker tone and being full of blood that spurts as your enemies' heads and bodies fly around, and when they fall to the ground, you give them the last, violent blow, piercing their powerless bodies with your mighty sword.

    Somehow the guys at EA have worked some magic by reproducing the Battlefield experience without the expense or hassle that comes with today's gaming PC.

    Unless you suffer from extreme ADD and you simply cannot spend more then 15 minutes learning a new game without being immediately rewarded, then I strongly suggest you check this game out. You won't find anything like on any other game system.

    Once again, the gents and ladies at Petroglyph haven't disappointed. However, there's still nothing groundbreaking to be had here and due to the aforementioned slip ups, the game failed to achieve its full potential. But it comes very close.

    If you haven't played any of the previous Devil May Cry games, ironically, this is the best place to start, since it offers the best performance and a truly rewarding single-player experience.

    Pure and addictive RPG-flavored FPS action, extremely engaging co-op and altogether a vast and mysterious world waiting to be explored.

    Empire: Total War would've have made a serious Game of the Year candidate if it did not exhibit so many technical hitches.
    • 93 Metascore

    I really must say I initially expected a slightly more epic feel during certain segments of the game. Some scenes are a bit underwhelming, as is the very ending of the game.

    The ability for players to jump in and out of the game in Party Play removes a lot of hassle of previous games when you are just looking to kill some time with friends.

    The new weapons, Infected and graphical update is the shot in the arm players were looking for to expand the PvP experience.

    The fact remains that if you're looking for a fast, smart and fun fantasy themed team-based strategy game, you can't go wrong here.

    With most sports games, the only real distinguishing feature with any of them is the graphics engines and the ease of play, and NBA Inside Drive 2002 has that in spades.

    The heavy emphasis on story-telling, coupled with the great voice acting, solid gameplay (outside of the space-based ship missions), good graphics and stellar sound track makes for an experience you have to try for yourself. If you are a Star Wars fan, an MMOG fan or a fan of past BioWare single-player RPGs, then you need to give this game a try.

    Sure, online multiplayer matches can be great when played with friends, albeit nothing beats the feeling of slowly upgrading your XCOM HQ and starting to see the fruits of your hard work when your military leadership starts to match the might of the alien foes. So, again, it's more of a single-player treat and it's about time we had a game like that.

    I cannot wait for the [free!] update that will bring on Act 2. I also cannot wait to see if Broken Age ushers in a new era of the point-and-click genre.

    A fun and solid game that despite having dated graphics and a lot of resemblance to an "Age" mod, it finally delivers the RTS Star Wars game that will satisfy the fans who have waited for a long time for a RTS game worthy of the Star Wars legacy.

    The one area where this updated "Hitman 2" code shows great improvements is in the rag doll physics model.

    The good thing about this Mercenaries remake is that it manages to capture the atmosphere of the previous game, while adding a more intuitive Mech Lab interface and controls (inherited from MechWarrior 4) and more mechs on screen than ever!

    The great thing about Civilization III: Conquests is that a majority of changes have streamlined the gameplay of this excellent turn-based strategy series.

    Easily an improvement over its predecessor, perhaps even twice as good. It certainly will have a good deal more replay value than the original, so if you are thinking of killing several dozen hours this would be a very good buy.

    Making a realistic FPS based on WWII is highly tasteless and somewhat degrading to soldiers who fought during the war.

    If you're a FPS gamer looking for a game to make you jump off your seat a couple of times, or you just like to scare your (gullible) date with Predator sounds coming out your mighty subwoofer, AvP2 is the game for you.

    Considering you get all this for thirty bucks, I see no reason why every action RPG or DS fan shouldn't go out and grab this one right now. If you're into addictive games, I can almost guarantee you won't be disappointed with LoA.
