King Arthur 2 is one
of the most unique strategy games to come along in quite a while. Rather than
focusing on kingdom building or minute unit tactics, KA2 shifts the focus to a
great blend of medieval battle and fantasy roleplaying...
In an age of advanced weapons technology and infinite choice, few things are more rewarding than heaving a bamboo spear at a dinosaur. Who knew? King Kong, an adaptation of the bloated film, is a breathtaking, non-stop adventure.
You mostly play the role of Jack Driscoll, the writer behind the film that the conniving Carl Denham (Jack Black) is trying to make on Skull Island. But instead of putting pen to page, you'll be filling prehistoric creatures full of lead in a desperate fight for your
Nov 30, 2007 Crazy golf isnt the most hilarious thing at the best of times - its a glorified crèche for holidaymakers children. But Oxygen would claim theyre in on the joke. They know that crazy golf is held in little regard, which is why they made it all so dreadfully tacky. Not rubbish, mind - its ironic. Those jaggy graphics that look sharp enough to saw plywood? Thats tongue in cheek, that is.
Few things are more likely to reduce a hardcore 2D fighting fan to a weeping, quivering mess than the suggestion that their favorite series is going 3D. Indeed, the history of 2D to 3D fighting game conversions is not exactly bursting with success stories. SNK Playmore's The King of Fighters 2006 (known in civilized countries as KoF: Maximum Impact 2) is the rare exception to this trend. In fact, it's such an all-around good game that it can stand apart from its esteemed 2D ancestors, offering
In the arcade glory days, 2D fighting games from SNK had many fans in both the US and Japan. In the mid-nineties SNK created The King of Fighters, a “super” fighting game combining characters from some of their numerous hit series. This annually updated fighting franchise’s first five versions (1994-1998) have been archived in King of Fighters: The Orochi Saga.

King of Fighters XI, like most of its older brothers, was originally a 2D arcade fighting game, and has been faithfully ported to the PS2 - with plenty of extras, to boot. The PS2 exclusive features - new characters and endings developed specifically for the conversion - probably wont be a selling point unless youre one of the lucky few who have access to the arcade original, but its nice to know theyre in there.
From the moment you turn the game on, youre greeted with a rockin
Welcome to your own personal time machine – you can pick any year you like, as long as it’s... 1995. Bizarrely, we mean this in the best possible way; the mid-nineties were a golden age for 2D fighters and everything that made them – and SNK – great is right here.
For a lot of us, SNK’s fighting games were usually followed up with a slice of pizza and a romp in the ball pit, mostly because our cheap-o parents weren’t interested in spending thousands on a Neo Geo and games. Jerks. While the SNK of old has dissolved, their fighting games have carried on, getting a little better with every incarnation. Their latest King of Fighters won’t set the gaming world on fire, but if you’re looking for a vintage taste of the old-school, look no further.
Somewhere in between the final boss assaulting your Princess’s home castle, receiving a pet dragon, gaining command of an army, getting your own ship, entering a new dimension, disobeying your father and destroying a priceless artifact, you might wonder if Armored Princess is squeezing too much into its first 90 seconds. Is this really a hex-based strategy game?
Great love triangles of our time: the frog, the zombie and us. Oh, how we long to marry both, but society’s cruel rules forbid it. Also, there’s no space for two wives on the character screen. Damn it. This is a strategy-RPG in the mould of Heroes of Might & Magic, with a simple structure – perform quests, build armies, kill other armies – that still manages to be consistently surprising.
