    Another poor release from SI

    Football Manager 2014

    Rated on October 31, 2013 by eric1000

    Another poor release from SI

    Last year SI released FM 2013 to much anger and annoyance from the players, and rightly so. The bugs were many and the match engine, a major component of the game was truly awful. A few patches were...

    How not to make a TW game

    Some years ago now CA created TW Rome, a brilliant, engaging and fun game that took away many many hours of my life and the lives of TW fans everywhere. Fast forward to 2013 and the curtain is thrown...

    Saints Row IV

    Rated on August 29, 2013 by eric1000

    A game too far for the saints row franchise

    Saints Row has always been an over the top, tongue in cheek title that put the emphasis firmly on fun. This time however the devs have completely missed the mark. Maybe it's simply a game too far fo...

    Masters of the World, Geopolitcal Simulator 3

    Rated on July 27, 2013 by eric1000

    Soaking your head in a vat of acid is probably more fun than playing this game.

    First let me start off by saying that this game could have been a jewel in the deep strategy simulation crown. Instead it is a badly put together piece of trash that assumes from the off that the pla...

    Generic on rails shooter with a poor story

    Generic on rails shooter with a poor story

    First off I would like to say that the graphics, sound and music are all first rate in this game and normally this would immerse the user fully into the game experience. The story however is dull. N...

    The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

    The hype train left the station before the game had been played enough

    Now don't get me wrong, I like Skyrim, it's a good game; but it isn't a great game. The title suffers on the PC because it was developed for the consoles; a fact all too evident by every pre-release ...

    Time once again for the annual cash cow to roll into town

    So the time is once again upon us when SI's annual cash cow rolls into town with the might of Sega's marketing machine ready to ram it down our collective throats. But what will we be swallowing this...

    A Game of Thrones: Genesis

    Rated on October 10, 2011 by eric1000

    A game of micromanagment

    There is such a thing as making a game just too involved and A game of thrones does just that. If the title were turn based then micro-managment is okay; it involves the player and immerses him into ...

    Fallout 3 meets Auto Assault meets Firefly and fails on all counts.

    When you take your first tentative steps into Rage the overall feel of Fallout 3 leaps out at you and this is no bad thing. But then you realise that there is no character creation, no skills to buil...

    Would have liked to play longer but the game is dead in the water

    Section 8 could have been a great game. The concept is good, the story although generic is no worse than anything else out there, sound and graphics are decent and the gameplay again is as good as mo...

    This expac is difficult to review to be honest. The gameplay and additions are pretty much exactly what you would expect from a Sims 3 addon but it's a two edged sword. On the one hand the new inter...
