    Capturing the offbeat Fallout flavor, humor, and sense of violence perfectly, Tactics should prove to be a worthy sidestep for the series.

    In short, the best reason to own Lord Of Destruction is for the resolution bump -- but it's ludicrous that we have to pay for that...Its high price notwithstanding, this is one expansion pack that's well worth owning.

    Make no mistake about it, Europa Universalis offers an extremely deep yet eminently enjoyable look at world history in the wake of the New World's discovery…It's one of the most engrossing global strategy games to come out since Sid Meier's "Civilization."

    With enough questions to keep most casual players entertained for weeks, an enjoyable and fully customizable presentation, and a lightning-quick ALT-TAB program-switching function, Rules Of The Game is perfect fodder for that lunchtime sports trivia interlude.

    All in all, Dogfighter is a heck of a lot of fun and a great way to release any pent-up frustration caused by years of parental nagging.

    Not superb gaming, but plenty good enough to satisfy most RTS and Dune fans.

    A fun game, with great audio files of worm banter and amusing animations.

    The game is fun; its combination of humorous action and territory-grabbing resource management make for interesting gaming. Unfortunately, I couldn't help feeling an overwhelming sense of deja vu.

    The best part is that, after the first few Krig-bound missions, much of the campaign takes place elsewhere in the galaxy in a variety of new planets and on new terrain effects.

    The graphics are clean and crisp, the soundtrack and audio effects are excellent, and the depth and variety of gameplay are quite impressive.

    Draws from all that has come before, mixes it with cutting-edge graphics, and churns out a forgettably generic off-road racer.

    A standout among some recent disappointments in the first-person shooter action genre.

    This extremely challenging game cries out for documentation, of which there is virtually none. And the nonsensical, sometimes juvenile back-story and completely incomprehensible and disconnected scenarios spoil what could have been a more superb title.

    Be warned, this is a game with unprecedented story depth but at the price of pacing. Some key soliloquies can drag on for 15 minutes.

    Take a blender, throw in a copy of "Diablo II" and "Baldur's Gate II," season with vodka, and what do you get? Konung: Legend Of The North, a real-time, role-playing game from Russian developmental studio 1C. It's a Baldur-ish spin-off that, despite its budget price, does quite a few things right.

    Oni
    After three years in development and two years of hype and anticipation, Oni fails to meet the expectations Bungie created for it.

    I'd really like to shimmy up to the crow's nest and holler at the top of my lungs that AoS II is without a doubt the be-all and end-all of naval warfare sims. But until they squash all of the bugs that seem to pop up with amazing frequency, AoS II may be looking for a stiff wind to guide it safe passage for several more weeks to come.

    The game gives you countless rooms to explore and the impression of freeform gameplay despite the fact that the game is actually quite linear. The downside is frequent disorientation.

    Technically speaking, one of the most important things this expansion pack does is bring Icewind Dale up to visual par with "Baldur's Gate II."

    On a purely conceptual level, the "Project" is an absolutely first-rate product that shows the RTS genre still has plenty of life left in it when others thought it was dead.

    Despite its minor frustrations, Away Team is still one of the more enjoyable additions to the ever-growing library of Star Trek games.

    I still find UO the most ambitious, flexible game design in the current field of MMRP games. I just wish the food were a little tastier after seven years of cooking.

    But hey, if your party is good enough, Drew Carey himself may come over and hang for awhile. What a goal, eh?

    Nothing you've played previously will properly prepare you for the authentic and often distressing portrayal of aerial warfare served up by Microprose in B-17 Flying Fortress: The Mighty 8th. Never has a title so humanized the genre or brought it to such a personal level.

    Some players will be offended by the manner in which some cultures are portrayed. This is the most damning criticism that can be levied on America. Otherwise, it is a solid piece of work that is a great deal of fun to play, regardless of which campaign one chooses: Native American, Mexican, outlaw, or settlers.

    Perhaps the finest cartoon-to-game conversion I've seen. Everyone is sure to be impressed with at least some aspects of the game, and some will find it just perfect. That those folks will invariably be the youngest members of your family almost goes without saying.

    If you can overlook its two "problems," you may find Project IGI one of the most engaging tactical-combat games of the year.

    It has buried within other commonplace RPG elements the most innovative approach to game storytelling I have seen in years.

    A remarkable new mech combat/fighting game hybrid that -- while gorgeous to look at and often wickedly addictive to play -- offers a surprisingly fleeting overall gameplay experience.
