Aura - Fate of the Ages
Adventure games, as you might have noticed, are not the strongest side of our section. We can somehow cope with the bright, mass things intended for the mass player, but…

Cultures 3: Northland
Сultures is probably the classic German series of military-economic strategy. The previous two experiments allowed to bring the game to almost perfection in each of its aspects. The series in…

Nitro Family

What is Nitro Family? More precisely – who is it? – since we all now know that in the real world this is such a single-disc game on our shelves (now it seems to be available as a licensed one as well) 🙂 Nitro Family is such a comic book family. Like the Addams family – just simpler, smaller, more cowboyly. They have a completely different style – as if Duke Nyukem was from the backwoods and married a robber stripper and had a son – not quite a young cannibal, of course, but something like that.

And necessarily everything happens in Texas or somewhere else where there are farms, ranches, open rural expanses and gullible consumers. Because Nitro Family, it is also a contrast to the so-called new ideal Healthy Family – the joy and harmony in which is supported by Golden Bell Corporation with the help of narcotic substances, the consumption of which by a mass citizen, has become the norm in this Continue reading

Blade and Sword

But this game – in general, lying in the same genre as the previous one – is just for those who are not interested in reading a lot of story texts. Everything is simple – like in Diablo, like in Lionheart – this is a task or two, here is a direction, a march step to chop hordes of monsters. Here is the base / treatment / purchase / sale – here are uncharted lands for scouring and stripping. Everything is interconnected by a teleport system, there are even portable teleports using the beacon-return system, and even if you are killed, it’s nothing more than transferring you back to the base (and you can run away to take out your recent killers, since they’re not even restore). And saving is only at the exit from the game.

By the way, a lot of all sorts of indirect signs allow us to conclude that in this case we are playing a truncated single version of a certain multiplayer toy – either online initially, or in the near future. Continue reading

Catwoman

After all, Catwoman is one of the not so frequent cases when we for some reason disagree with the observers of a site such as Gamespot. Put the Catwoman for the schedule seven ???? Yes, from what oak, excuse me, did they collapse there? What hardware were you looking at? Because on ours – it’s not like ten, it’s eleven! This is an unprecedented graphic, similar to which we have not seen. If the same can be seen in the version on the Xbox, which there is no particular reason to doubt, then together with the Riddick chronicles this pair of games allows us to believe that a normal DOOM III is possible for a Microsoft machine. Because finally, xbox-programmers (namely, from there, without a doubt, the roots of Catwoman) took up the mind and began to actually comprehensively program using tricks Continue reading

Tribes: Vengeance

The question “How to start all this stuff in the third round, so that the lower hemisphere does not plop into the puddle?” Sooner or later, he was simply obligated to disturb the calm sleep of the developers and the publisher. Well, I broke …
IN SOLO VERITAS
Having turned the problem this way and that, scrupulously examining it from the outside and from the inside, the inquiring collective mind of Irrational Games still found the truth. She hid in a solo performance. You heard right. In order to extend the life and glory of the legendary multiplayer series (and all previous Tribes are strong and only multiplayer), a paradoxical decision was made to bet on single-player. Although this move cannot be called unprecedented. Have you finally got acquainted with the recently released Counter Strike: Condition Zero? Continue reading

Bad Boys II

The already familiar technology in the style of “playing a movie is a little ahead of the picture itself, and then they advertise each other” – obviously, in this case, it kind of crashed: the program appeared much later than the movie went through our screens (or maybe just it the success, and therefore the expediency of the toy, was in question). In this connection, to really establish in the head the connection between events in the computer and in the cinema seems to be a relatively difficult matter. Do you remember what was discussed there in this mid-level action movie, which travels mainly for actors and shootings? We don’t 🙂 In this connection, we can safely recommend forgetting about the prototype film and enjoy the game process on our own – especially since the videos in the game are of terrible quality (technically, what is the meaning), computer characters are not too similar on themselves “in life”, and a miserable story serves the sole purpose of at least somehow linking to each other crazy action episodes that speak Continue reading

Ground Control II
Recent gaming times on PCs have not been marked by an abundance of strategies. First-person shooters - as many as you want. 3d action even more. But strategies are few.…
