    The game has a nice blend of economics and naval warfare. The basic idea just needs little more variation and wider range of victory conditions to keep the game fresh. [Aug 2009]

    Looks and sounds good, but the game feels like it was designed by a committee. Gameplay is just too boring, repetitive and old-fashioned. [Feb 2007]

    A decent samurai and sword action game based on Tezuka Osamu's Dororo manga. It is a little bit repetitive and the dated gameplay is disappointing. A few fun monsters, though. [Apr. 05]

    Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix presents a nice and flexible engine that produces a beautiful sandbox-ish Hogwarts. However, the trite and mundane missions and general flaws turn a potentially entertaining game into average licence fodder. [Aug 2007]

    It seems that EA tries desperately to create new content and games for Sims players. You can see the desperation here. Pet Stories doesn’t offer anything new to the previous ones but the horrible “stories” which are so utterly stupid that the player feels ashamed playing them. Everything’s not bad though. Creating and training pet is quite okay and there’s a lot to do as in all Sims games. Still, I wouldn’t pay full price for this new... game. [Aug 2007]

    I would rather pay for an update that fixes AI and streamlines UI. Not muach new, and commando night missions are ArmA at its worst. [Nov 2007]

    Neither Flashpoint nor as bad as some say. It is fairly entertaining but surprisingly unambitious milsim light. [May 2011]

    Feels more like a prologue than an epilogue because the story has no end. It is fun to play and puzzles are better than in the original game. [Apr 2009]

    Multiplayer mode needs some redesigning, too, but otherwise the package is pretty darn impressive. [Oct 2006]

    Mario & Sonic: Third time is the charm. This olympic game is by far the best application published under the Mario & Sonic franchise. The mini games are well executed and the regular sports are topped off with fantastic dream sports. Although there's still not enough content for long lasting sporting mayhem, the presentation is far better than in the two previous installments. [Jan 2012]

    An average action-adventure. One for the fans. [Aug. 05]

    A quality expansion pack. The random map generator is well complemented by three campaigns and scenarios, not to mention the finally-working scenario editor. [Jan 2007]

    Geist is the kind of game the Gamecube needs. The idea of a wandering spirit works fantastically and is fun to play, but as a shooter Geist has nothing to offer. [Oct 2005]

    Looks beautiful, but is otherwise a by-the-numbers building game. Fun, but provides no almost no challenge at all. [Aug 2006, p.42]

    Three words: Robotron with zombies. Mindless fun that is best enjoyed with friends. [Dec 2009]

    Shadowrun fails to impress. While the core gameplay principles are well designed and the game has a balanced feel to it, the experience turns out to be underwhelming. There is simply nothing flashy nor exciting about Shadowrun. [Aug 2007]

    A nice point ’n’ click adventure with an interesting, albeit none too original plot. The puzzles are fine and the elegant inventory adds to the gameplay. A few illogical issues and the overly dramatic dialogue do not spoil the pleasure of playing the game. [Dec 2006]

    Extraction Point and Perseus Mandate are both decent expansions to F.E.A.R. despite that fact the graphics looks a bit outdated. Suspense works well, but the new plot only messes the great ending of the original game. [Jan 2008]

    A mediocre and out-of-date tactical game. Stupid AI, lack of immersion and no dynamic campaign or even smoke in the battlefield are not what you would call 'meeting today's requirements'. [June 2007]

    A competent show-wrestling game with sexual overtones. [Mar. 05]

    Desperados 2: Cooper’s Revenge continues on its predecessor’s path. The gameplay, graphics and characters are great. Add to that the Morricone-like music and you have a Wild West addict’s dream. Still, the game falls short of masterpiece status, because of too much frustrating sneaking, some graphics bugs and the occasionally stupid AI. [June 2006]

    Nerf N-Strike has a great idea, but playing is not so fun. The biggest problem is lack of zombies. Best part of the whole package is the gun itself.

    Yearly update to the Farming Simulator offers the best digital farming experience available. Grinding money will keep you occupied for a while, but eventually you want something more. If only the game had a story and GTA-ish approach to game design, they would make this game series an instant cult classic. [Jan 2015]

    The second season of Kinect Sports doesn't really offer anything original or inspired, it's just a collection of sports mini-games. Some of them are mildly entertaining (Golf), while others are over-simplified and boring (Tennis). All in all, Season Two is an extremely casual gaming experience that offers neither fresh ideas nor precise motion control. [Dec 2011]

    A straight forward GTA clone with few new tricks. Biggest innovation is the fact, that you can blow up almost anything, anywhere, anytime. Explosions, you got to just love them.

    Here we have a stylish and original horror adventure, which manages to scare. The ending is quite thought-provoking. The game is quite short, but the time spent on it is definitely quality time. [Aug 2014]

    The Bureau: XCOM Declassified does not deliver. It is not bad, but rather depressingly average. [Sept 2013]

    A quite good action adventure in a pretty Final Fantasy -world. The telekinesis powers are fun. Don't expect any RPG stuff, though. [Mar 2010]

    You never know what to expect from Bioware when they create a new DLC. Sometimes they are decent, more often not. Legacy and Mark of the Assassin are pleasant surprises in the continuum. The adventures are well written, Tallis is a compelling new character and the combat is challenging enough. The add-ons are solid work, but not extraordinary by any means. [Nov 2011]

    Dropteam gets better and better with every patch. The game offers a strong, realistic vision of war in the future, but has one minor problem. It is mainly geared for multiplayer action with only a few players in the USA. Dropteam needs a strong single player campaign to escape Planet Niche. Do not waste a game this good only to multiplayer! [Sept 2006]
