    Diehards of the genre will comment that puzzles in this version have been "dumbed down" and are no longer as taxing as previous games, relying instead on simple mechanical or jumping solutions to get the job done. I’ll have to agree with this point, but...

    But raising the levels of difficulty for both will not only make the game hard to play, as the rewards you can gain make up for that. Finishing the game on various levels of difficulty again, you can obtain various bonus weapons and even a bonus ending.

    For the first time in over a year I found an MMORPG I can stand to play for more than a few weeks.

    One of the sleeper hits of this year. Excellent gameplay, unique additions to the usual RTS style, sound that makes you want to turn up your speakers, and multiplayer mode that has major replay options.

    For those who are already fans of the series, you’ll find more of the same thing that you loved in Patrician II; the biggest addition probably being the online multiplayer component, but Patrician III is structured in such a way that it is very accessible to newcomers as well, so come one, come all.

    Some parts of the game can drag a little, and the warfare system doesn’t feel fully fleshed out, but creating towns and ‘playing god’ is as fun as ever.

    Contains the same, insane amount of detail and dedication to military history. However, besides additional content in the form of animations, units and terrain sets, CMAK is pretty much the same game, lacking any apparent innovation.

    In some ways the game feels like an expansion, or maybe a half-sequel. It doesn’t have as many levels as Hitman 2, but they’re longer, and usually more interesting.

    My expectations may have been a little high, because I’m left wanting more. I wish the developers had implemented things like loops, and that they had added more cars, more levels, and just about more of everything.

    But once you take it online and play team versus team the fun factor really kicks in. AT-ATs shaking the ground, Ties and X-Wings battling it out in the air and the sounds of explosions and blaster fire all around you, any real Star Wars fans doesn't stand a chance at putting this game down.

    It has certainly impressed me in many ways: Beautiful design, convincing environments, and depth of play.

    All of the aspects of a great game were there: Good graphics, good sound, great AI, and compelling story. However, the fact is that the gameplay really wasn’t fun at all.

    The game plays well, and although the character abilities aren’t particularly original (elemental attacks, etc.) this is more a criticism of the whole genre, and Kult has a refreshing system to learn and use them. The story is a strong point too, which for an RPG is probably the most important aspect for most players.

    A title worth picking up if you’re feeling a little nostalgic and want to play some simple, but great old titles or would just like to try out some things you may have missed.

    Made worse by its squandered potential. Pump the rating up to “Mature,” add some blood, a few guts, craft a story and gameplay more appealing to an older audience, and the game designers could have a hit on their hands.

    Although the single player campaign can get a bit boring, the multiplayer aspect of Future Perfect offers endless hours of mindless violence.

    The controls are smooth and well implemented, with nearly every button on the controller used. Unfortunately, the default control scheme is the only option but considerable thought went into it and it shouldn’t offer most gamers any trouble.

    Although there have been many games in this mold, Devil May Cry 3 sets itself apart from others by incorporating fighting styles to keep this game fresh, instead of just repetitive.

    A smart strategic addition to a solid, turn-based strategy game.

    It’s more of what you’re used to with a few new bells and whistles.

    An incredible game. I would say it’s a must have for every RTS fan out there. I haven’t enjoyed a game this much for quite a long time.

    The beauty of Port Royal is that it is more than just an economic sim, it adds piracy and town building and various other things that give the game a surprising amount of depth.

    It really is a joy to play a game that hasn't been done what can seem like hundreds of times.

    For the price and the quality of the game, Hearts Of Iron Platinum is the best WWII strategy simulation on the market currently.

    It is cerebral where most other sports games gaudily play up the gladiatorial aspects of pro sports. As such, it is an acquired taste. However, this reviewer encourages you take that first taste. It usually leads to a lifelong addiction to titles such as this much to the dismay of your free time.

    The visuals are absolutely breathtaking, whether it is the incredible lighting effects, lush environments, or the fine details that are often overlooked by other games, XR delivers.

    The transition to the portable system is nearly flawless, and the addition of 4 new maps adds enough variety to appease owners of the console version.

    The game’s excellent visuals and integration of that Japanese feel make it a better-than-average action adventure game, but is overall too short to make it really stand out.

    If you’re looking for a deep, interesting shooter, where the story goes a bit beyond the map description….then this game isn’t for you. If you’re looking for something a bit more in depth than the quick fixes Unreal Tourney provides, but not quite as sluggish as Battlefield, then feel free to open up your wallet, just don’t blow the budget on it.

    It was well thought out, and makes for a nice change of pace from normal play.
