    Syberia II ties up all the loose ends, but it lost some of Syberia's charm along the way.

    Syberia II

    Syberia II ties up all the loose ends, but it lost some of Syberia's charm along the way.

    Syberia was a whimsical adventure that had a healthy mix of stunning visuals, a deep sense of history, and a storyline that tread the boundaries between reality and fantasy like an acrobat on a tightrope; giving the over... Read Full Review

    Syberia

    Syberia places you in a believable situation, then adds whimsical wonders to spark the imagination.

    Syberia

    Syberia places you in a believable situation, then adds whimsical wonders to spark the imagination.

    Did your parents or grandparents ever show you an old wind-up toy with metal spring, coils, and tiny gears that they used to play with when they were children? Mine did. It was a little man that would jump up and down in... Read Full Review

    If you need an example of why video games should be considered an art form, Dreamfall is it.

    Dreamfall: The Longest Journey

    If you need an example of why video games should be considered an art form, Dreamfall is it.

    Six years ago, designer Ragnar Tørnquist rocked the adventure game genre by introducing The Longest Journey. An epic tale featuring a down-to-earth female protagonist, compelling supporting characters, and fantastic worl... Read Full Review

    The start of an epic tale that would span the distance between our world and our wildest dreams.

    The Longest Journey

    The start of an epic tale that would span the distance between our world and our wildest dreams.

    Historically, some of the most successful adventure game series have revolved around satirical situations played out by cartoon-like characters, such as in the Monkey Island or Sam & Max series. The Longest Journey break... Read Full Review

    Age of Empires III

  • Review Score:5
    A great game and a welcome addition to the series, but did it surpass AOE II?

    Age of Empires III

    A great game and a welcome addition to the series, but did it surpass AOE II?

    Age of Empires III was the logical next step for the series and adds some great new features to the formula used in the past. Unfortunately, however, I did not find it as enjoyable as some of the older games carrying the... Read Full Review

    A classic RTS that not only plays well, but makes learning history fun and immersive.

    Age of Empires II: The Age of Kings

    A classic RTS that not only plays well, but makes learning history fun and immersive.

    Age of Empires II improved on many aspects of the original while still following a standard RTS template. Though it remained lacking in some areas, it presented itself well and won the hearts of both gamers and history b... Read Full Review

    A good starting point for an excellent series.

    Age of Empires

    A good starting point for an excellent series.

    Age of Empires had a good base concept: to deliver immersive RTS gameplay with realistic historical flavour. The single player campaigns in particular seemed designed to teach the player a bit about our planet's early ci... Read Full Review

    A wonderfully addictive game with many compelling features. A great way to get started on the strategy genre.

    Civilization II

    A wonderfully addictive game with many compelling features. A great way to get started on the strategy genre.

    To start; Civilization II was the first "modern" PC game I ever owned. I saw a demo of the game on display in a local computer store so I gave it a try. I was only about 11 years old and by the time my parents finished t... Read Full Review

    A real treat for Star Trek fans dreaming they could one day brush shoulders with the TV-show legends.

    Star Trek: Starfleet Academy

    A real treat for Star Trek fans dreaming they could one day brush shoulders with the TV-show legends.

    Starfleet Academy tends to get a bad rap among Star Trek gamers, though perhaps not as much criticism as some of the later games that would be made in that universe. When it was first released, many Trek fans were exp... Read Full Review
