Soviet Assault doesn’t do anything to change 2007’s excellent Cold-War-gone-hot RTS. Instead, it weaves six new multi-part missions directly into the original campaign, so you play as both the invading Soviets and the defending US and NATO. It feels as if I’m playing World in Conflict: Director’s Cut, featuring scenes from the Russian perspective that ended up on the cutting room floor.
World of Goo is bubbling with ideas. Born from a student project to create a game in just seven days, the original’s single mechanic was the ability to pick up little black goo-balls and place them near one another to form wobbling structures of squishy struts. No goal, no purpose; just a limit to how high you could scroll and the compulsive desire to reach that limit.
We were nearly out, damn it. We were so close. We had friends. We had a decent job. We hadn't (recently) left any children to die during one of our 22-hour marathon binges. We were finally free. And then Cataclysm happened. Now the mere act of writing this review is causing us to break out into a cold, nervous sweat. We're hooked worse than ever, and we blame it entirely on the fact that World of Warcraft is now the best it's ever been...
World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria offers some pretty strong incentives for lapsed players to rediscover this MMO's wonders. Get a glimpse of this mystical new continent in our full review...
Believe it or not, it’s been four years since World of Warcraft opened its awaiting arms to would-be adventurers, and nearly two years since its first expansion, The Burning Crusade. Regardless of this slightly languid release schedule, WOW continues to be wildly popular, and thus Blizzard are willing to swing the punch of an expansion at the most competitive time in gaming.
Once we found out this game was coming to us from the peeps at AGEOD, we knew it was going to be hardcore all the way. World War One is almost sadistically detailed, with over 50 pages of overview stats available when you start any scenario or Grand Campaign.
Stop! Before all you goblin-fanciers blankly flick past this review in search of mystical worlds, take a minute to gaze in wonder at the screenshots. For years you have dismissed Football Manager as a glorified spreadsheet. Even the introduction of an overhead 2D match engine couldn’t sway you from pixie boots and leprechauns.
