    An interesting arcade/simulation mix that is restrained from greatness by a few integral inadequacies. There has never been such a fine line between enjoyment and annoyance. Only consider playing it if you have a decent wheel.

    Not legendary by any means, this game is a good one to pass the time with. It's intense action should draw you in, even if the less than stellar graphics and the subpar production values do not.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 74 Critic Score
    It's still not quite good enough to recommend purchasing individual episodes, but the season package is starting to look pretty tempting. Make sure your system is well above the minimum requirements for maximum pleasure.

    It’s hard to know which is worse; the interface or the AI. Both combine to spoil the latest Master of Orion title.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 74 Critic Score
    Great for old-school action fans. Repetitive and dull for everyone else.
    • 65 Metascore

    While it's good for a quick game, in the long term you must ask yourself, "How much fun is it to place objects and watch people?"

    Goes a long way in making EverQuest accessible to casual RTS fans. Hardcore fans on the other hand could find the game to be too simple, and focused on too small a scale. Creation of units is slow, and mines run out often, so if you don’t mind expanding your force for most of the mission you will find an entertaining game in Lords of Everquest.

    Worth a look for fans of casino gaming, but not innovative enough to keep most people interested for very long. The game’s attempts to be “more than a gambling sim” fall somewhat short of the mark.

    A fine game with no glaring flaws, but also offers nothing to really rev up a gamer's engines either.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 73 Critic Score
    Sadly, it’s attempts at being challenging only contribute to make the game less accessible to players.

    Caters to hardcore puzzle gamers. It’s a well-produced puzzle/adventure game, albeit with a weak story, but newbies to the genre should definitely know what they’re getting into.

    Not a terrible game, but far from a good game, DarkStar One finds itself right in the middle, orbiting the planet mediocre.
    • 75 Metascore

    If you like the WW2 shooters and prefer the stealth and sniper aspects then this game is for you. Want something revolutionary? Then keep looking.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 72 Critic Score
    Adequate, but nothing incredible.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 72 Critic Score
    It's not a classic of the genre, but it gets the job done and has outstanding graphics and animation work.
    • 57 Metascore

    Moscow to Berlin regains some of its quality with its dramatic cut scenes that set up the plot and objectives for the mission extremely well and its encyclopedia of all units and vehicles allows you to examine unit’s strengths, weaknesses, and purpose.

    The worst crime ever committed against PC gamers was releasing the sequel to UT without an Assault mode.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 72 Critic Score
    A short but pleasureable romp through France in the shoes of the best girl detective in the world.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 72 Critic Score
    What hurts this game more than anything else, is that it could have been so much better.
    • 86 Metascore

    Ask yourself if battling through hundreds of combats, most of which require no strategy other than kill the other guy first, sounds like fun.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 71 Critic Score
    Despite my initial aversion, this game turned out to be quite entertaining, if not revolutionary in any way. A must have for C&C fans, and a lot of fun for FPS players.

    A very good tactical simulator that will appeal to all players, at all levels.

    I don't see anyone anticipate a co-worker saying, "man, I wish 5pm would hurry up and get here. I want to get home and play Secrets of the Ark" in the near future. But I can see the adventure fans finding something of value buried in there somewhere with Mary of Magdalene.

    Didn't the developers play "IL-2 Sturmovik"? They should, so they can see how it's supposed to be done.

    A sim that is not for everybody. A smorgasbord of pleasure for train geeks. The cure for insomnia for the rest of us. Add or subtract 20 points from the score, depending on which camp you fall into.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 71 Critic Score
    It’s as brief and easy as the previous episode, but overall it’s more palatable.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 71 Critic Score
    Feels too much like a simple port of a console game. PC gamers are learning to expect much more! If you enjoy console beat-‘em-ups, then it will at least provide some variety in your diet.

    Nightfall doesn’t really bring anything new game mechanic wise to the Guild Wars franchise, but it does offer some beautiful environments and cultural inventiveness to an otherwise bland fantasy genre.

    Crusader Kings has a lot of potential: the underlying historical model is a gem. However, when all is said and done, games need to be playable: and there’s some way to go here.
    • 71 Metascore

    Hard-core fanatics of the original will find this expansion somewhat appealing, although the aquatic shows are a bit flat.
