They say you dont know a man until youve walked a mile in his shoes, and the same holds true for an Orcish horde. No matter how well you think you know combat in the world of Heroes of Might and Magic V, a quick run through the first mission in Tribes of the East makes it obvious that you still have much to
Somewhere along the way it seems Russian development team Nival Interactive got its signals crossed. What we wanted after the promising mess that was Heroes of Might and Magic V were fixes, and after the fixes, an expansion with a campaign worth playing. Not just a hodgepodge of features that frankly should have been in the original or dished up alongside the
Its odd that so many choose to concentrate on the European Theatre of Operations. Storming Normandy and the grim struggle for Stalingrad provide meaty scenarios, but theyre only part of the story. On the other side of the world a different type of war was being waged. A war fought in the endless blue of sea and sky.
Heroes flings you into this frightening azure void with an alarming lack of ceremony. Much like the young pilots of the day youre thrown into the thick of things before youre
Buy Hinterland and it’s just as likely you’ll walk away complaining that the score should have been doubled or halved. For a game with such a simple premise – Diablo, but you build the town as well as saving it – it’s surprisingly tough to grasp exactly what it is.
There’s something bizarre about this game where mercenaries battle the forces of an evil dictator in central Africa. No, it’s got nothing to do with the setting at all - it’s that all the female mercenaries we recruited emitted orgasmic noises whenever we clicked on them.
December, 218 BC, northern Italy. A javelins throw from the ice-fringed Trebia river, Sempronius Longus explains a last minute change of plans to his generals. “Gentlemen, I dont like it any more than you do, but the fact is the Senate have decided that if we take more than [checks telegram] six minutes to beat Hannibal tomorrow, or suffer more than [checks telegram again] 140 casualties the battle will go down in history as a Carthaginian win.”
Welcome to the pedantic but fun
Agent 47's first game in years is brilliant in execution, and absolutely wonderful. Take a look to see why Hitman Absolution is one of the best games of the year...
Hoard is an action-strategy game where you play as a fire-breathing dragon. If that doesn’t immediately grab your attention, there’s probably something wrong with you. Being a dragon of the Tolkien variety, you’re a particularly greedy bastard who spends the entire game burninating the countryside and robbing the dirty peasant folk of all their gold, princesses and wealth. Concept-wise, Hoard is pretty freaking sweet. More importantly, the gameplay is solid and the price is incredibly reasonable...
To the 45 million citizens who dont have health insurance: please accept our most corporate condolences. Everyday we pray that a fluke highway four-car demolition wont shackle you to an emergency room; then a wheelchair; then a $100,000 bill.
And to show how much we care, well be reviewing Hospital Tycoon: a game that reminds us that healthcare is a business of compassion - a loving empire fueled by new drugs to inject into the
This is the most bizarre sexploitation game mash-up since BMX XXX. Thankfully, Hot Dog King is far less exploitative and grotesque. Sadly, it's not much better.
It's a cross between your average management game and Dead or Alive Xtreme Beach Volleyball. Yes, you have to buy equipment and manage staff. Yes, you have to arrange for assorted condiments to be delivered to your fast-food restaurant. Yes, you get to twiddle with the percentage of profits on every item and worry about your
