The Last Dynasty

The Last Dynasty
3

One of Sierra’s lesser known titles, The Last Dynasty blends action and storytelling into an odd retro experience. You play as Mel Raauq, a space pilot who received the mission of destroying Lord Iron, an inter-galactic bad guy up to no good. The mix here is between traditional Sierra storytelling and Wing Commander style space […]

The Guardian of Darkness

The Guardian of Darkness
3

Developer Cryo is renown for infusing its distinct regional flair into their games. It’s a move you find elsewhere too – think Germany’s Gothic series or Poland’s Witcher series. It’s a tale of life and death, of the ‘Beyond’ (which is only vaguely described), from which ghosts and spirits occasionally escape through a mystical gate […]

Ishar 3: The Seven Gates of Infinity

Ishar 3: The Seven Gates of Infinity
3

This is the third game in the popular old school role-playing game series, Ishar. It begins where the second left off. Like the Quest for Glory series of games, Ishar 3 lets you import the stats from your Ishar 2 characters. There are a multitude of quests and large maps to explore, following the same […]

True Crime: New York City

True Crime: New York City
3

As a sequel to Streets of LA, True Crime: New York City has the same gritty feel, gunplay and violent fun that was common in the first game. That first game was, to its credit, less than ideal, with some wonky gunfights and hand to hand combat, much of it a heritage of its console-to-pc […]

The House of the Dead 3

The House of the Dead 3
3

Set sixteen years after the events of the previous game, House of the Dead 3 lets you assume the role of Lisa Rogan, daughter of Thomas Rogan, ex-member of the secret government organisation the AMS and star of the previous two titles. After the authorities lose contact with her father whilst investigating the mysterious EFI […]

X-Men: The Official Game

X-Men: The Official Game
3

With the story being set between the first X-Men movie and its sequel, X-Men: The Official Game follows Wolverine, Nightcrawler and Iceman over a span of almost thirty levels. Missions include defeating Hydra, The Brotherhood and a whole host of other villains in typical third-person adventure mode. Wolverine is your typical scrapper, but seems to […]

Moscow to Berlin: Red Siege

Moscow to Berlin: Red Siege
2.5

From Desert Rats to D-Day, Cristo has done its fair share of real-time strategy games based on World War II, and here is yet another lesser known cookie-cutter game from the same developer – Moscow to Berlin, naturally centering on the Russo-German campaign. Throughout the game you will be bounced from one side to the […]

Mercedes-Benz Truck Racing

Mercedes-Benz Truck Racing
3.5

If you enjoy two very specific things – Mercedes trucks and racing – then you’re probably going to enjoy this low key but surprisingly digestible game. It features real truck racing teams and drivers, realistic damage, a replay editor, and an optional unlimited speed mode which scratches the top speed you usually get with these […]

Jewels of the Oracle

Jewels of the Oracle
3

Jewels of the Oracle is set in quite a beautiful pre-Sumerian civilization that seemed to have a propensity in designing devilish puzzles. You can play any of the puzzles on two difficulties, and they can be solved in any order. The main objective of the game is to solve all of the puzzles. The game […]

Dark Colony: The Council Wars

Dark Colony: The Council Wars
2

Earth is hungry, cold, and cramped; its peoples need food, energy, and new frontiers. The Pleidans (called the Grays by Earthlings, and familiar to anyone hanging around Roswell 50 years ago), a race which apparently specializes in genetic manipulation, have troubles of their own; genetic experimentation gone awry apparently decimated their culture, and they’re struggling […]
