    18 Wheels of Steel: Haulin'

    A realistic simulator with dated graphics.

    So you want to be a trucker.This game has nice physics and requires skill to drive without running anything over,BUT the pro's don't make up for the con's. I'm a trucker in real life,and the truck really feels like a t... Read Full Review

    Immersive enviroment with nice looking graphics that look great,but retains playablility on older machines.

    The Lord of the Rings Online: Shadows of Angmar

    Immersive enviroment with nice looking graphics that look great,but retains playablility on older machines.

    I like LOTRO. World of warcraft is the champ..but not in my eyes. LOTRO's graphics look better,and it's not quite the clustered mess WOW is. I played Asherons Call (1999) from beta on up (turbine made). In AC when u ... Read Full Review

    Dungeons & Dragons Online: Stormreach

    Fun,but stormreach is NOT unlimited for free players.You'll be stuck in the first city.HOWEVER,it's no longer stormreach

    My review is late,and irrelevant at this point...actually,all these reviews are except the updated ones.D&D:Stormreach has been revamped,and renamed to D&D:Eberron. I've played quite a few MMO's... stormreach wasn't ... Read Full Review

    Starsiege Tribes

    Tribes is killing me.Life expectancy on these worlds is about five minutes or less.Jetpacks add a twist to your averagel team vs team venue.Aiming becomes difficult when you have to adjust for your momentum,not to mentio... Read Full Review

    Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six: Rogue Spear

    Rogue Spear,a fantastic classic,combat,shooter sim.

    Air Warrior II

    I don't care what anyone says,Air warrior II was a solid combat sim.

    I flew my heart out in Air warrior II,AND III.Yes,yes,the graphics look awfull by todays standards,but it wasn't bad from the pilots seat.The game was 2D.The monster 3D 4MB video card had just appeared on the market,and ... Read Full Review

    Motocross Madness

    Multiplayer fun with respectable graphics.More 'arcade' than simulator.

    I had alot of fun playing this title at microsofts gaming zone back in the day.MXM isn't a simulator,but still fun.Forget playing solo,it's kinda boring.Multiplayer is what makes this game. The game had a strong follow... Read Full Review

    I've played GPL since 1998.Here we are 2010,over a decade after the game was released,and still they race it.I know of no game,on any system,that's held this kind of fanbase for so long.The graphics were plain,even for 1... Read Full Review

    People,keep in mind,this is an old game (2001).I run a three PC LAN.My friends are allways wanting to race leadfoot (and i have lotsa other racing titles).The grafs are 3D,but dated.We all know grafs are just part of the... Read Full Review

    Grand Theft Auto III

    The GTA edition that got the series going.

    A very fun game.I highly recommend it.This title is older,so it's probably less than $20...so go buy it,you won't regret it. Those of you who are bored with the newer GTA titles,such as vice city & san andreas,will b... Read Full Review

    In 1996,i would've given this game a 9.5...BUT,it's 2010.

    I admire the dedication of any player who still considers Diablo fun,or recommends it.I bought this game in early 97'...along with my blazingly fast compaq 233mhz.That old compaq is worthless now...you know what i'm goin... Read Full Review

    I'm not sure how old this game is,i own it,and could look,but the games timeless really.I'm guessing 2002-2004.Forgiveme,i own ALOT of games. This game stands out among the numurous shooters. The game has single,m... Read Full Review

    YOUR HEAD MAY EXPLODE PLAYING THIS GAME.<br />

    In all my years of gaming (since 1990),i've never seen a game so rewarding,and demanding.Carnage Hearts designers deserve a medal and our respect.There should be statues erected,and streets named after them....ok,that's ... Read Full Review

    The zoom on this title is insane.You could see a soldiers mustache (its blocky and unimpressive that close tho).The individuals are 3d rendered (not crappy sprites).The grafs are nice (2001 style).Good variety of units f... Read Full Review
