Broken Sword: The Sleeping Dragon

Broken Sword is the third game in a series of wonderful adventures that have not gone unnoticed by almost all PC players. Despite the fact that the first two episodes pleased us already in the distant 1996 and 1997 – the brand had a strong reputation, and the 6 years it took to transition the game in 3D didn’t bother anyone. As a result, the game today can be found on almost any counter, unlike its most serious competitor, probably today – Uru: Ages Beyond Myst. Which, in our opinion, is at least strange – because Uru is not only magnificent, but also a direct heir to Myst.

But you can be glad that on two discs Broken Sword – at least, it seems, is a complete game, and not cutting from a Continue reading

V-Rally 3

Western observers in whose hands the Xbox version of the third V-Rally has fallen are generally enthusiastic about it and find it indecent to put the game on a par with such rally masterpieces as the latest Colin McRae Rally and Rallisport Challenge (although they do not deny certain problems that are still present in VR3). We would like to approach this issue somewhat more carefully.

We take this opportunity to remind our readers of rally racing in general and of these two outstanding masterpieces in particular.

Rally involves training in the “driver” communication skills with the car in the most diverse, most extreme combinations of Continue reading

Kohan II: Kings Of War

In Kohan, inventive “timegates” managed to refresh both the actual game concept of the real-time strategy and the ideological content of the fantasy RTS. In no way wanting to belittle the talent of the legendary Tolkien, I still can not help stating the already obvious fact: the endless bickering of orcs, elves, people and other funny creatures begins to annoy quite a bit. TimeGate has proposed a new fictional world with completely unfamiliar inhabitants, the listing of which will take up too much space. Yes, and the names a la Charon, Gauri and others like them ignorant people, most likely, seem sophisticated Arab curses. Continue reading

It’s interesting, of course, how computer game building patterns prevail over the prototypes that they use to identify well-known brands and good memories :) Could Tolkien, thinking up his halflings,…

Age of Mythology: Titans
This extension is obviously a bit weaker than Zero Hour, although it is also significant. As a bit weaker, the AoM game itself, which is one of the last incarnations…
