Pool Paradise

Pool Paradise
3

Pool Paradise is a pool game that doesn’t take itself seriously. It starts by shunting you to a Tropical island of sand and sun – but not before receiving a 200$ loan from a literal shark to play said games. Playing against thirty different computer-controlled characters, you can earn more cash. With the additional cash […]

Blaze & Blade: Eternal Quest

Blaze & Blade: Eternal Quest
2

For a poor title, Blaze & Blade does provide a surprising amount of gameplay. You create a party of four characters out of eight available classes. Each time you continue, it’s possible to change your party’s composition. Some classes can access special areas that contain a minor treasure or a shortcut, but there is one […]

Chaos League

Chaos League
3

Chaos League is an odd mix of strategy and football set in a fantasy universe. The objective is simple – you need to get the ball in your opponent’s endzone. The method, however, will involve using your team members to inflict quite a bit of pain and suffering on the opposition. It’s blood football on […]

Boiling Point: Road to Hell

Boiling Point: Road to Hell
3

Boiling Point simmers in mediocrity. It’s hard to place Boiling Point: Road to Hell into any definitive category, but one can arguably classify it as a blend between a role-playing game and a shooter, with a large open world, many characters, vehicles, and missions. The setting is a South American country with a volatile regime […]

The Lord of the Rings: War of the Ring

The Lord of the Rings: War of the Ring
4

Warcrafting a quality strategy game. While Lord of the Rings: War of the Ring does little to revolutionize the real-time strategy genre, it does serve Tolkien’s Middle-Earth admirably while letting you control the actions of the majority of its most storied denizens. Frodo, Gandalf, Aragorn, Gimli, Legolas, Saruman, Gollum — they’re all here at your […]

Battle Realms: Winter of the Wolf

Battle Realms: Winter of the Wolf
3

The official Battle Realms expansion pack, Winter of the Wolf, is a bit on the skimpy side, weighing in at 11 brief missions, eight additional expansion units, and four new Zen Masters. Set seven years prior to the events in Battle Realms, Winter of the Wolf casts you as Grayback of the Wolf Clan, a […]

Battle Realms

Battle Realms
3.5

At first, Battle Realms seems to have all of the ingredients of a true winner, including designers that previously worked at Westwood of Command and Conquer fame. Well, we can scratch the instant-classic status, because despite its best efforts to revolutionize the RTS genre, Battle Realms too often plays like every other RTS game on […]

The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King

The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King
3.5

RotK has plenty of action, little grey matter. After 30 minutes of gameplay in Lord of the Rings: Return of the King, I was having a lot of fun and was prepared to sing praise to the game. The seamless melding of game and movie — the intensity of Peter Jackson’s exemplary visualization of Tolkien’s […]

Field & Stream: Trophy Bass 3D

Field & Stream: Trophy Bass 3D
3.5

Fishing sims are usually low key, and while that’s certainly the case with Trophy Bass 3D as well, there’s still a lot to experience nonetheless. Solo anglers can take part in fishing trips, tournaments, or go all-out in career play. Trips are simple one-off lake expeditions, while tourneys are full three-day competitions against other anglers. […]

Last Bounty Hunter

Last Bounty Hunter
2.5

Yet another forgotten 90s full-motion cringefest, Last Bounty Hunter presents a wild west themed shooting gallery with zero replay value. As in all of ALG’s titles, The Last Bounty Hunter hangs full-screen video mayhem on a loosely constructed skeleton of a plot that exists mainly to give you a reason for roaming the countryside, shooting […]
