Neverwinter Nights 2: Mask of The Betrayer
Decent expansion to a great game
Firstly, I'll admit that I'm biased - I love the Neverwinter Nights franchise. I've got all the expansion packs, played through adventures multiple times with different character classes and seen most...
Titan Quest: Immortal Throne
Decent expansion pack that significantly enhances the Titan Quest experience
The expansion pack to the highly enjoyable Titan Quest really adds a lot to the game, both in giving a lengthy addition to the story as well as adding new features that can be used throughout the init...
A lot of fun but a bit lacking in originality
I bought this game on the recommendation of one of my friends. He described it as "a bit like Diablo". As a big fan of Diablo I was immediately interested in seeing the game, and very excite...
Tomb Raider: Anniversary
At some point something went very wrong.
I am quite proud of the fact that I have defeated every standard Tomb Raider game on the PC. I like the series, it features intriguing storylines, a likable heroine, exciting gameplay and mental chall...
Neverwinter Nights 2
An almost perfect sequel to one of the greatest games of the modern age
Ok I'll be honest with you, I really like Neverwinter Nights. In fact, I love it. I've played through the incredibly long main adventure and the expansion packs at least four times with various charac...
Worldwide Soccer Manager 2007
Another highly addictive and enjoyable addition to the Football Manager series!
In today's world of realistic graphics and intense action games requiring huge amounts of processor power, the Football Manager series is something of an anomaly. Here is a game that revolves around a...
Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas
A well rounded game that will keep you playing for months
Since bringing out GTA3 back at the turn of the century, Rockstar have been consistently pushing the bar higher in terms of what their rivals must put in a game to keep it up with their offerings. Gra...
Neverwinter Nights: Kingmaker
Three reasonable additions to the Neverwinter Nights experience
I happily admit that I am a big fan of Neverwinter Nights, having played through the original game and its two official expansion packs many times. Therefore I had pretty high expectations of the comm...
Alley Cat was the first game I ever played. This would have been around about the early 1990's. My father acquired the game (which was on an old school "giant" floppy disk from work, and copied it ont...
The Sims: Livin' It Up (DVD)
Solid expansion pack
The Sims was something of a revolutionary game when it was released in the dim and distant days of the turn of the century. It spawned many expansion packs, Livin' Large (or Livin' It Up, as it is kno...
Tomb Raider: Legend
A work of art
In the last few months I have done two things. One was to go on holiday; the other was to engage in a Tomb Raider marathon, completing every other game of the series in preparation for Legend. So, I h...
Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Angel of Darkness
Good and bad points
I bought this game despite reading a lot of very negative reviews and comments about it. I'm a big fan of the series so I thought it can't possibly be as bad as it is made out to be, can it....? At...
Tomb Raider Chronicles
A bit of a letdown
Despite Lara's supposed demise at the end of The Last Revelation, Core can't resist wheeling the old girl out for another adventure in Tomb Raider: Chronicles. I really like the series, but I have to ...
Tomb Raider: The Last Revelation
A generally strong addition to the Tomb Raider series, although the common weaknesses are still there.
Tomb Raider: The Last Revelation has a different feel to it than the other games in the series. Yes, the delightful Miss Croft may have the same moves, and may be yet again challenged on every turn by...
Mummy: Tomb of the Pharaoh
The much-maligned genre of Point and Click adventures occasionally produces a classic game. This however, is not one of them. Mummy has the potential to be really good: the premise of the story is qui...
Tomb Raider II
Difficult, though ultimately rewarding
Tomb raider was a revolutionary game when it came out, being one of the first to offer complete 3D worlds to explore. These coupled with an engaging story, good action, thoughtful puzzles and a sexy h...
Tiger Woods PGA Tour 2004
This is the perfect golf sim. Period. Ok, so I have to give reasons why. Well first and foremost we'll look at the graphics. To be honest, I'm yet to come across any game in any genre that looks as...
Fun but too buggy
Ice Hockey is a great sport, but living in the UK I don't get nearly enough access to it. So buying the EA Sports NHL game is something of a no-brainer for me, as I get to live the game in my own home...
Vampire: The Masquerade - Redemption
Vampire: The Masquerade - Redemption was a great game when it was first released in 2000, though unfortunately it required you to have stupidly powerful machine to be able to run it well. By today's h...
FIFA Football 2003
Southampton 36, Real Madrid 0
Ok, so I'm highlighting the one inherent flaw of all football sims there, by stating that once you get good enough all reality goes out of the window. This instalment of EA Sports FIFA-badged game is ...
Formula 1 fans aren't really well catered for by the games market these days, however this game is one of the classics from back in the day. Featuring all the cars, drivers and circuits from the 20...
Tomb Raider III: Adventures of Lara Croft
This game is a fantastic addition to the Tomb Raider series. It offers a very long adventure, full of varied environments, challenging battles and interesting puzzles. The story sees everyone's fa...
One of the defining points in gaming history
EVERYONE has heard of the Tomb Raider franchise. While nowadays it seems to be in overkill, with countless different games for countless different consoles, the early instalments were classics. This w...
The Sims (DVD)
Something completely different.
Every so often a game will come along that is totally new. The Sims is in this category. Unlike the majority of games which are, lets be honest here, rehashes of games that have come before them, The ...
Thief: The Dark Project
So I'm gonna go against popular opinion here...
Back when this game came out in 98 one of my school friends told me all about it. He isn't a particularly excitable guy but he was going absolutely crazy about Thief: The Dark Project. So four years l...
Grand Theft Auto III
One of the most important games ever released
Before Grand Theft Auto 3, the GTA games had cult status. They were exceptionally violent and offensive games that's status was enhanced by their simple graphics, aerial 2D view, and emphasis on cruel...
Fun for a while
I shouldn't like this game. As a rule I don't like strategy games, though this is strangely fun. It has some flaws, however for a couple of days entertainment every once in a while Gangsters is a fair...
Grand Theft Auto: Vice City
Superb all-round gaming experience
Rockstar North had a difficult task on their hands when making Grand Theft Auto: Vice City. That task was to try and make a better game than the marvellous GTA 3. They succeeded. Vice City is set i...
Championship Manager: Season 03/04
The definitive Championship Manager
This was the last Championship Manager game to be released with Eidos and Sports Interactive working together, and fittingly it is the best. It is hard to believe that a simple text based game coul...
The Sims 2
Goodbye real life
This is a dangerous game. Only buy this if you are prepared to sign away weeks of your real life to the lives of assorted virtual characters. Describing The Sims 2 as addictive would be a massive unde...
Diablo will celebrate its tenth birthday this year. The amazing thing about this is the fact that it has lost none of its appeal during this time. While it is comprehensively put to shame in terms of ...
Max Payne 2: The Fall of Max Payne
Escaping from the Pink Bird Mental Institute is fun every single time...
I am referring to "Return to Sender: Address Unknown", one of the surreal TV shows that Max repeatedly comes across on his adventures in Max Payne 2: The Fall of Max Payne. It is subtle background ele...
Max Payne is a highly rewarding, interesting game that breaks boundaries in terms of its appearance, and will have you coming back to it time and time again. I will start my long list of compliment...
Smoke...but no cigar
This game should be great. It features an occult storyline, vampires, Nazis, a sexy heroine, and several innovative ways to slice and dice enemies. The elements are there for a cracking game. The fact...
Diablo II: Lord of Destruction
Fantastic addition to an already fantastic game
Diablo 2 was a massive improvement on what was already a fantastic and groundbreaking RPG. This expansion pack really completes the Diablo 2 experience and is worth every penny that you spend on it. ...
Neverwinter Nights: Shadows of Undrentide
Solid, but not spectacular
This is the first official expansion pack for Neverwinter Nights. It offers a variety of new character classes, spells and feats, as well as a whole new single player adventure. The adventure is un...
Neverwinter Nights: Hordes of the Underdark
Best NWN campaign to date
While the first official expansion pack for Neverwinter Nights was good in that it added new and more powerful character classes, the story seemed tired and was over way too quickly. This is not the c...
One of the most complete RPGs available
Neverwinter Nights is undoubtably one of the most important games ever released. It is a gorgeous and immersive game that sucks you in to it and will have you playing it over and over again. In terms ...
Has a few good points
I bought this game after playing Take 2's follow-up cinematic adventure game "Black Dahlia". In terms of how the games work, the two titles are very similar, however Black Dahlia is far superior. That...
