    As in the original Men of War you get the same explosive fun in Vietnam but where's the innovation?

    I love these types of games. Where the battlefield feels alive and you can control individual mini soldiers directly or at a distance with a click of the mouse. I dont need to introduce what this game is all about caus b... Read Full Review

    The First Templar

    First Templar is a good start with being creative in original story telling.

    Not that bad. I must say this game grows on you and it won't impress you at first play. This is a action-adventure game at its heart. Where you control up to two charactors on screen but not only one at a time. You can s... Read Full Review

    This wargame turns a stale genre on its head with its refreashing colarful art style and fun immersive gameplay.
