Expansion pack Mask of the Betrayer picks up from the moment D&D-loyal RPG NWN2 finished, with the King of Shadows defeated, and your character squished beneath a collapsed building. You're alive, but there's something wrong. You're now at the bottom of a dangerous dungeon, with only a suspicious Red Wizard for company.
Fear not if you haven't completed NWN2: you can fire right in with a brand-new level 18 character, which gives you the chance to try out the six new sub-races
There’s a nasty, DRM-shaped Illithid in the room that must first be slain in any review of Neverwinter Nights 2’s new ‘Adventure Pack.’ Ossian Studios acknowledged work on Westgate finished as early as 2007, but note that Atari were unable to decide how the pack should be copy-protected. So, perfectly reasonably, launch was held back for a year and a half. Wait, not perfectly reasonably, the other one. Ridiculously.
Love it or hate it, you’ve got to give Storm of Zehir points for effort. Developers Obsidian could easily have banged out a generic adventure for this expansion pack. Instead, they’ve produced a radical overhaul, one that’s not afraid to take a few risks.
The history of the NFL is peppered with tales of hyperactive head coaches sleeping overnight in their offices, drawing up crazy plays, and building championship clubs from the ashes of decrepit teams. NFL Head Coach from EA Sports allows you to experience this rather unique lifestyle; whether or not the activities that make up the job are more interesting than, say, your current employment situation is another question.
Head Coach is a freakishly in-depth sports simulator. The emphasis is on
Kicking their heels during the real-life players' strike last season, the NHL 2006 developers clearly entertained themselves by playing their back catalogue.
What they seem to have realised is that - somewhere in the recent years of motion-captured great leaps forward - a lot of the fun had gone out of their ice hockey title.
They must have picked up FIFA, too, because by co-opting that game's right analogue stick trickery, NHL 2006 delivers the most fun sports sim in the whole of the EA
Fans of foreign horror/thriller films have already seen Night Watch. The stunning and stylish adaptation of Sergei Lukyanenko's Russian novel flew through US theaters last year, but attracted enough of a cult that someone decided to adapt the movie's universe into a game.
Night Watch centers on the conflict between Light and Dark Others - extraordinary humans who wield sorcery in an unseen war. Both factions are engaged in an uneasy truce - the Light enforce this truce with a shadowy police
Let’s play What If. What if Mr. Miyagi hadn’t been grooming the Karate Kid to win a martial arts tournament, but to clean cars really, really well? How about if in The Matrix, Morpheus had taken Neo into the virtual dojo to learn the calming benefits of yoga rather than showing him how to deliver kicks to the face?Soul-sapping dullness? Correct!
Ninja Reflex consists of six minigames that never get round to letting you be a
Nostradamus predicted a fair few things in his time. The Great Fire of London, Napoleon’s empire and the rise of the Third Reich. What he probably didn’t predict was that he would be commemorated in a point-and-click adventure for the PC.
