Mad Trax

Mad Trax
2.5

Well designed and fun to play with a wealth of ridiculous banks, leaps, and curves, Mad Trax certainly has a fair share of good action. You race in one of eight customizable cars, and where you’ll finish is always a mystery-there are power ups lying around waiting to be used and abused, including shields, missiles, […]

Renju

Renju
2.5

It sounds simple enough. Just place five consecutive stones in a vertical, horizontal or diagonal line. Sort of like Tic-Tac-Toe, right? Renju, a variant of the popular board game Pente, is one of those deceptively simple strategy games that turn out to be diabolically complex. First off, there are 225 spaces on the game board; […]

Black Knight: Marine Strike Fighter

Black Knight: Marine Strike Fighter
3.5

Black Knight: Marine Strike Fighter is a simulation of the F/A-18 Hornet, which is currently being used by both the U.S. Marines and U.S. Navy. At first glance, this game reminds me of F/A-18 Hornet add-on for Falcon 3.0 from Spectrum Holobyte and Apache from I-Magic, mainly due to the similarity in quality of the […]

Simon the Sorcerer 3D

Simon the Sorcerer 3D
1.5

As with Escape from Monkey Island, Prince of Persia 3D, Earthworm Jim 3D or Quest for Glory V, Simon the Sorcerer 3D follows a long and twisted logic of changing hand-drawn, beautiful 2D games into ugly, crude and poorly animated 3D remakes that played like crap and made you barf. It was at that strange […]

FEAR: Perseus Mandate

FEAR: Perseus Mandate
3

The original FEAR awed us into submission with its great action scenes, terrific squad AI and creepy scripted encounters that made you feel perpetually unsafe. The chill factor was so high that you were praying to encounter another squad of enemy soldiers to keep you company, and away from the isolation that usually signals another […]

Simon the Sorcerer II

Simon the Sorcerer II
4.5

Of lions, wizards and wardrobes. Sordid, vanquished at the end of Simon the Sorcerer I, returns from the dead and plots to gain his revenge on our hero. To that end he causes a wardrobe to materialize in Simon’s bedroom which promptly whisks the reluctant adventurer back to the land of wizards, goblins and swamplings. […]

Simon the Sorcerer

Simon the Sorcerer
5

Simon the Sorcerer stands out for several reasons. For one thing, it’s a great point and click game that wasn’t made by Sierra or LucasArts, despite having the humor of Monkey Island and an engaging fantasy setting that will remind one of Kyrandia or King’s Quest. And being made by a British company (Adventuresoft), it’s […]

I of the Dragon

I of the Dragon
3.5

I of the Dragon is a 3D action role-playing game where you play as a dragon instead of a conventional character. Flying dragons is something you don’t usually see in games (Drakan: Order of the Flame is an exception), so immediately we’re off to a novel premise. Alas, I of the Dragon is very much […]

Space Bunnies Must Die

Space Bunnies Must Die
2.5

Space Bunnies is a bad B-game with poor controls, mediocre gameplay and weak graphics. It appears that the majority of money spent on the game was directed at the soundtrack, art direction and advertising because Space Bunnies Must Die! is all concept, no execution. It’s a painful experience to make your way through the early […]

Thunder Truck Rally

Thunder Truck Rally

Thunder Truck Rally (aka Monster Trucks) is a an arcade-style 3d monster truck racing game. You will find all of the normal racing modes: championship, time trial, practice, and multi-player. In addition to the standard modes, there is a car-crushing competition that serves as both a separate game mode and a bonus round in the […]
