Hexxagon is a simple yet fun MS-DOS board game with almost no replay value.
1993... definitely a year to be remembered for the old-school PC gamers, especially due to the releases of id Software's DOOM and Westwood's Dune II. Meanwhile a very small group of developers made a ...
The King of Dragons
As your skills get better, you'll want to play The King of Dragons even more!
The Beat-'Em-Up genre was so popular in the 90s that a lot of similar games were released for the arcade machines. Most of them have so much in common that you'll keep asking to yourself if the develo...
Fate is about unstoppable action combined with repetitive gameplay.
A lot of titles tried to mimic the hack 'n slash formula from Diablo (1996, Blizzard), but what most developers can't understand is that games aren't made only of frantic gameplay, since story and eng...
Death Kings of the Dark Citadel
Is there a way to go wrong when an add-on is just recycling an already great content?
Death Kings of the Dark Citadel (1996, Raven Software) is an expansion to HeXen, a medieval First-Person Shooter with a creepy fantastic setting built on the old DOOM engine, released by id Software b...
Sango Fighter 2
Sango Fighter 2 is a hidden gem in the middle of a fuss of popular 2D Fighting games.
With so many Fighting games shining back in the 90s, it isn't hard to understand why Sango Fighter 2 (1995, Panda Entertainment) wasn't noticed by PC gamers. Back in those times, titles such as Super ...
One Must Fall: 2097
Probably the best Fighting game to ever hit the PC.
The era of MS-DOS games was blessed with great titles such as DOOM, Duke Nukem 3D, Warcraft: Orcs and Humans and Command and Conquer, but the list isn't as quite as large when it comes to Fighting gam...
An easy yet fun ride through endless hordes of undead.
Sigma Team released several years ago Alien Shooter (2005), which is a well-known game for Arcade/Action fans that are looking only for some intense slaughtering. Following the steps of classics such ...
Zombie Shooter 2
Some dull action sequences make Zombie Shooter 2 a bit disappointing, even though it's a fun game in general.
Sigma Team is known by their intentionally over-the-top action games, especially after the release of the first Zombie Shooter (2007) and the Alien Shooter series (2005, 2007 and 2009). Since the deve...
Duke Nukem 3D: Atomic Edition
"Damn, those alien bastards are gonna pay for shooting up my ride."
Every game in this world becomes obsolete after a few years, but some games don't seem to be affected by the ages even a decade after their release. Here I'm talking about legendary titles such as DOO...
Serious Sam II
Compared to its predecessors, Sam II comes with both better and worse qualities... more good than bad news, however.
Serious Sam series, from Croteam developer, are popular FPS games that bring amazing action sequences, where the hero, Sam "Serious" Stone, is alone killing literally hundreds of monsters summoned by ...
After finishing this horrible expansion, I said to myself: "Why?"
I thought the only way someone could mess up with Duke Nukem 3D (1996, 3D Realms) was to design bad maps for it and group them into an expansion. But WizardWorks did much more with Duke Xtreme (1997),...
Duke: Nuclear Winter
How a Christmas haunted by aliens can be so much fun?
3D Realms maybe didn't know that Duke Nukem 3D would cause so much impact when they released it back in 1996. And it did! This amazing First-Person Shooter is a classic in its genre, and not too many ...
Duke!Zone II is basically a pack featuring hardcore, bad designed maps.
Back in 1997, WizardWorks had a hard job: to gather the worst kind of Duke Nukem 3D maps and make a compilation with them. This pack of uninspired levels they called Duke!Zone II, an add-on to the pop...
Duke It Out in D.C.
If only this add-on couldn't be finished in a single day...
After the release of Duke Nukem 3D (1996, 3D Realms), a lot of add-ons and map packs were released for this amazing First-Person Shooter. That's quite natural, considering it's not difficult to design...
Duke Caribbean: Life's A Beach
This below-average add-on isn't exactly the best way to revive your Duke days.
Released by Sunstorm back in 1997, Duke Caribbean: Life's A Beach is just a cool yet mediocre expansion to 3D Realms' First-Person Shooter classic, Duke Nukem 3D (1996). Duke, one of the greatest hero...
Even though it may be piece o' cake for serious players, Prey delivers awesome run-and-gun sequences.
Since the release of DOOM 3 (2004, id Software), the gaming world counts with two more titles using the same technology (id Tech 4) which powered that excellent horror game: one being Quake IV (2005, ...
Rise of the Triad: Dark War
Facing labyrinths and lots of obstacles is strangely fun in Rise of the Triad.
After the release of Wolfenstein 3D (1992, id Software), many developers started to work on First-Person Shooters. Between many games released back in those times, Apogee Software came with something ...
S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Clear Sky
Clear Sky provides a few improvements to the original formula, but at the cost of some frustrating mistakes.
In the real world, the Zone of Alienation still is a dangerous place because of the irradiation dust, which was created due the Chernobyl nuclear disaster back in 1986. But the version of the Zone fea...
Give this game a few hours of your attention and you'll get its full potential.
Necrovision (2009, Farm 51) is one of those games that, at the very first moments, make you think why you would spend your time playing it. What is so interesting in playing a First-Person Shooter bui...
Left 4 Dead
You'll find that killing zombies is more fun than it sounds.
I don't know if the director George Romero, the creator of the cannibal zombies from the Living dead series, likes to play video games; but one thing I'm sure: he would love to see that his idea was u...
Unreal Tournament III
A missed opportunity that could've been one of the best sequels ever released.
Epic Games is known by developing important games along the years. Their most famous franchises are Unreal and its multiplayer-focused version, Unreal Tournament. Although Unreal II and UT2003 were bo...
Kingpin: Life of Crime
You have probably seen this before, but not in the way that Kingpin manages to show.
You may say that Kingpin: Life of Crime (1999, Xatrix and Interplay) is just another generic First-Person Shooter using the aged id Tech 2 engine (which Quake II is based), however this game gets bett...
Overdose lacks in what made the original Painkiller so great.
It's still a cool old-school First-Person Shooter game, but Overdose (2007, Mindware Studios) isn't exactly a nice addition to the Painkiller series. It was originally made as a community mod for the ...
I surely enjoyed this game for a while, although being so unoriginal and built in such a badly-elaborated engine.
When I noticed months ago that Titan Quest was under development, I was waiting for a different game, an original one. Let's see: an Action RPG game set in the ancient world of Greece, Egypt and Orien...
A good mix of the best old-school RPG games.
Divine Divinity (2002, Larian Studios) is a very good Action RPG, which mixes the best elements from Ultima and Diablo. While in the Ultima games the dialogues and puzzles were very intelligent and co...
The outstanding single player and the powerful graphics engine makes Doom 3 one of the best First-Person Shooters.
id Software became more an engine developer than a game maker in the last years. And, we must say, they're really doing a nice job. Right now, Doom 3 is almost three years old, and still is one of the...
There is something to enjoy in Dragonshard, but the lazy single player makes it to stay far from the best RTS games,
First of all, the truly first Dungeons and Dragons Real-Time Strategy was Blood and Magic (1996, by Tachyon Studios and Interplay). This game wasn't good enough to enjoy serious RTS players -even DnD ...
Diablo II: Lord of Destruction
Adding stuff and extension to one of the best Action RPG games is naturally a nice idea.
The Lord of Destruction expansion pack adds some good hours of gameplay to Diablo II, although you'll have to finish all the previews four acts again to reach the added campaign. Now the player can ch...
Unreal Tournament 2004 (DVD Version)
There isn't a better multiplayer game like UT2004 so far.
Imagine a First-Person Shooter game with a lot of well-made maps, weapons, nice graphics, great multiplayer, amazing music and sounds... it's definitely Unreal Tournament 2004 that we're talking about...
This collection contains almost all Ultima games from Garriot, and still is enjoyable even with the dated graphics.
First of all, the Ultima series are my favorite pure RPG games. Richard Garriot was really inhaled when developed the Ultima games. Its featured story, gameplay, sound and graphics are uneven. Usually...
A good expansion to an already great game can only be nice, right?
Sacred is a pure Action RPG that allows you to play with six unique characters. By upgrading to Sacred Underworld you add two more heroes: the Daemon (a hybrid of knight and demon) and Dwarf (a warrio...
Diablo II masterfully improves the formula used in its antecessor.
Right now I'm reviewing a pretty old game, although I must say that I'm still impressed with this one. Blizzard had the challenge to create a sequel to an already excellent game, which is a difficult ...
Now it's time to write some stuff about this revolutionary game made by id Software.
I owned this game many years ago, and recently I decided to play it again. What I can tell about the first 3D shooter in the gaming history? Well, it is revolutionary, innovative and undeniably fun. T...
This is a fine Action RPG game taken to the extreme.
A lot of Action RPG titles have been made throughout the years, such as Diablo and its sequel, Darkstone, Space Hack, Divine Divinity, Nox, Titan Quest etc. It's perfectly possible to compare the simi...
WarCraft III: Reign of Chaos
It continues with excellence the Warcraft Saga by introducing amazing new concepts to the RTS genre.
Blizzard always hits the target with every game they release, and Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos is no exception. Make no mistake: if you enjoyed the previews versions of the RTS series, you'll love thi...
This is a Diablo knockoff done right and also the first fully 3D Action RPG game.
Darkstone was developed by Delphine Software in 1999, and it isn't hard to notice that the developers undeniably wanted to turn Diablo into a 3D fantasy Action RPG, so this game was created. In thi...
In some way, this game is similar to Quake II, except to the lazy multiplayer mode.
Quake 4 is set in the Quake II's universe, continuing the struggle between humans and Stroggs, the latest a hostile alien race. In this First-Person Shooter you play as Kane, a new guy to the Rhino Sq...
Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne
Warcraft 3: The Frozen Throne is the ultimate word about the multiplayer experience in RTS.
After exhaustively playing Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos, I decided to upgrade to The Frozen Throne expansion. I couldn't help to notice some flaws that really trouble the gameplay. It doesn't mean, ho...
Heroes of Might and Magic III
Hail to the best Turn-Based Strategy ever developed.
I was waiting for Heroes V to write this review, and now I just confirmed my thoughts: Heroes III is the best title of the series. Heroes of Might and Magic III, developed by 3DO and released in 1999,...
