I was an Atomic Mutant!

I was an Atomic Mutant!
2

I Was An Atomic Mutant casts you in the role of one of four giant monsters bent on destroying mankind and racking up points doing it. It’s pure arcade mayhem, and if you’re a fan of the kind of hyperbolic Atomic age giant monster movies they used to make fun of on Mystery Science Theater […]

Galactic Civilizations: Altarian Prophecy

Galactic Civilizations: Altarian Prophecy
3.5

Galactic Civilizations was just the right game to yank everyone from their Master of Orion 3 cynicism. It appeared out of nowhere, but managed to impress and entertain traditional 4x space sim enthusiasts. The expansion pack brings little in the way of actual changes to the core gameplay, but instead supplements it with new stuff. […]

Carnivores: Cityscape

Carnivores: Cityscape
2

As if the first three Carnivores games weren’t the cause of enough suffering, along comes Carnivores Cityscape, which tries to offer a more traditional first-person take. (The operative word is tries.) You get two campaigns, unique mission objectives, and even a multiplayer component. But sadly, like the previous Carnivores games, Cityscape is just a Festival […]

War of the Worlds

War of the Worlds
2.5

War of the Worlds is based on the original H. G. Wells book about an alien invasion that devastates the Earth. The game itself is a mix of action-strategy and an over-arching campaign map where you have a larger picture of the invasion. The campaign map covers Britain and follows the progress of the human […]

AMA Superbike

AMA Superbike
2

It features a wide variety of gameplay modes, allowing you to practice, take part in individual races, compete in the full championship circuit in a quest for the AMA title. There are a total of nine bikes, each […]

Carnivores: Ice Age

Cue the release of Carnivores: Ice Age, the third game in the Carnivores series. In Carnivores: Ice Age, you travel around hunting ice age-era mammals like the smilodon (saber-tooth tiger), the wooly mammoth, and […]

Massive Assault

Massive Assault
4

Massive Assault, a futuristic, squad-level turn-based strategy game, kicks off with a nice intro movie and a long synopsis of all the political events that lead to a catastrophic war. The Phantom League, a cabal of secret military forces who aims at global domination, is at war with the Free Nations Union. Both forces hold […]

Deer Hunter 3

Deer Hunter 3
3.5

Like previous versions, Deer Hunter 3 does a decent job of simulating the real deal insofar as considering things such as sound, wind direction, and realistic gear. But as a hunter sim, it still relies on graphics that are too basic to really evoke any feeling of truly roaming the great outdoors. Let’s start with […]

Star Trek: Hidden Evil

Star Trek: Hidden Evil
3

Star Trek: Hidden Evil is not the groundbreaking, must-have Trek game it was originally hyped to be. Despite the lovely graphics, faithfully sampled sound effects and admirable recreation of the Star Trek universe, the mixture of action and adventure just didn’t mix well. As it stands, it’s a third-person adventure game that doesn’t quite know […]
