    Postal 2: Apocalypse Weekend

    Apocalypse Weekend has a few bright spots, but it's mostly a mediocre disappointment.

    The original Postal 2 was more of an antisocial behavior simulator than an actual first person shooter. Postal 2: Apocalypse Weekend attempts to provide a much more linear and traditional first person shooter experience... Read Full Review

    Roller Coaster Tycoon 3 is challenging, highly addictive and packed with content.

    I don’t know what the original release of this game was like, but the current version is an excellent game. Roller Coaster Tycoon 3 is arguably the best simulation available for the PC. If you love Roller Coasters like... Read Full Review

    Poorly placed save points and some other issues turn this potentially great game into just a good one.

    One thing that you can say without a doubt is that Psi-Ops is a unique game for the PC. Another thing that you can say about it is that it has a few new, wonderfully implemented game mechanics, and that a lot of thought... Read Full Review

    Republic Commando is fun, fast-paced, and authentic, but it's not outstanding in any way. It's also fairly short.

    Republic Commando is a different kind of Star Wars game. You can see this from the moment that it starts up. Instead of the Star Wars theme with the scrolling text, the game begins with a foreboding chorus from the pre... Read Full Review
