“Fixed fortifications are a monument to the stupidity of man.” General Patton said that. Dude was dead wrong, or at least he never played Sanctum. Created by indie developer Coffee Stain Studios, Sanctum is not your average tower defense game. Yes, you have to purchase, build, and upgrade turrets to defend a core from hordes of monsters ever increasing in size and difficulty, but there’s an element that makes Sanctum stand out: once you’ve completed your defensive positions, you can get into the fight yourself...
For those not familiar with the SAS, it’s the Brits’ equivalent of the U.S. Marine Corps. Or, if you believe SAS: Secure Tomorrow’s interpretation, it’s an army of unkillable yet dim-witted super-soldiers that mow down international terrorists by the dozen.
Oddfish, this Savage game: it tastes just like an online FPS, with third-person elements, but there's a strange smell about the place. It's almost as if... there's some real-time strategy going on. For the beginner, Savage is a disconcerting experience: just what is this strategy element? Where is it coming from? What does it mean? And whose orders am I completely ignoring? Important questions indeed.Perplexingly, these are questions that remain unanswered by the game itself. There is no
Savage 2: A Tortured Soul desperately tries to deliver a new kind of game where real-time strategy and first-person action get it on to provide the ultimate new two-in-one genre combo. Unfortunately, its multi-genre elements dont always get along, and playing the game will sometimes make you feel like youre watching your mom and dad fight.
To be fair, Savage 2 has smoothed out a ton of the rough spots since developer, S2 Games took their first stab at creating a Frankenstein game thats one
There’s plenty to scoff at in Secret Files’ point ’n’ click formula. TARDIS-like trouser pockets capable of carrying ladders and coal sacks; ludicrous leaps of logic as monkeys are painted red; and let’s not forget our old favourite, the truck fashioned from a coat hanger and a juicy orange.
In 1908 a gigantic blast roughly equivalent to the power of a nuclear bomb rocked the area of Tunguska in Siberia, felling trees in an area of over 800 miles. Although most scientists agree that the blast was the result of a large asteroid or comet, conspiracy theories involving extraterrestrials remain popular to this day, making Tunguska the Roswell of Russia. Although the mysterious premise of Secret Files: Tunguska involving foul play and aliens shows promise, the game itself won't make a
The Secret World is Funcom's follow-up to Age of Conan. Can this MMO in a modern-day setting deliver the goods as free-to-play titles begin to dominate the genre? Check out our review!
Right away, we realized that Secrets of Atlantis had big problems. In the opening cutscene, hero Howard Brooks deadpans, “It all started one morning in April 1937. I was aboard the celebrated Hindenburg …[LOTS of pointless voiceover cut – youre welcome] …when a most disagreeable meeting occurred, which would make its mark on my whole future.” Really? On your whole future? Then, in a scene which desperately mimics Indiana Jones, two men knock him unconscious and
The Broken Sword series just keeps on keepin' on, even though an increasing percentage of young gamers have probably never heard of it. Considering the series is over 10 years old, it's surprising we're only now getting the fourth installment.
Secrets of the Ark is pretty much what you'd expect from an adventure game nowadays. A lot of classic talk-and-puzzle gameplay mixed with an attempt at a contemporary look and interface. And at the minimum system requirements, the game will chug on all
