There are some games in which you are the boss. This is a heady feeling and gives you a lot of joy and a sense of power also, when the reins of the game and everything in it are vested with you and you alone. In Tropico 3, you get to play the role of a dictator in the post Cold War area. You have to cater to your people’s needs as you are the dictator and the ruler of an island nation. The people look up to you for all their needs and this includes basic needs like shelter to more peripheral needs like entertainment. You also have to provide for clothing and food and it is you responsibility to produce surpluses that can be sold for profit.
In Tropico 3, you start off with just one palace, a few farms and a dock and construction office. Later you start to export ore and finished goods and as you graduate to higher levels, the export items and lists become more advanced and sophisticated. You can take business and strategic decisions as to investment options like that of mining or tourism to mention a few. You also have to act like a dictator and o you need to stack money in your Swiss account and the like, to reflect your autocratic instincts.
There are some games like Infinite Space that are so absorbing because of their unique characteristics and the level of excitement that they bring to the table. It is no wonder that these games hold a mysterious sway over their players and they keep coming back for more. The game of Infinite Space is quite such a game that helps you explore the vistas of space. The storyline is simple enough, where you have the story of Yuri, who wants to venture into space and get into the outer expanse of space. The aim is to explore space and at the same time also know more about the artifact that he has with him. Infinite Space is a game with lots of experimental value and loads of attractions that will keep you spell bound for hours.
There are a lot of tensions and also conflicts that re inter spaceship in nature. The action is racy and fast paced and initially there are dodges, barrages and normal attacks. As you go to higher levels, the intensity of the game and its attractions also increase such that you get into a kind of frenetic excitement. But there is little scope for mistakes here as even small errors can lead to certain death on the game of Infinite Space.
There are some games that are quite popular even though they may be virtually ages old. There are quite a few of these games that bring a smile to your face and make you have long cherished as well as lovely memories that really give you the time of your life. One of these games is Lunar, which has had almost 20 years of history, given the fact that it was released way back in 1992. Even so, the tenor and the interest of the game has not waned one bit. There is so much to reminisce about and also feel so elated about, that you feel that you can play the game easily for 20 years more.
With Lunar: Silver Star Harmony you do not have just a naïve and simple game of a young lad who goes out to see the world and fight with enemies. With this game there is a mysterious beautiful girl who has a bit of a past, and this certainly spices things up considerably. At the same time, you also have a lot of elements in this out and out RPG game to make it quite charming, despite the obvious RPG features that the game sports so readily.
The Secret World is one of the most widely and eagerly awaited games as it seeks to set new standards in gaming as well as lots of excitement for you to check out. The storyline is so absorbing which means that you will have a whale of a time playing the game and enjoying yourself. Indeed, it seems something strange is happening in the Kingsmouth area, where some people have already started to go missing. Those who are left behind seem to have acquired some new powers for some reason that no one can really fathom. Apart from this there are alien creatures and monsters that want to capture people and take them to a place that no one knows is where. There is all so much of uncertainty and excitement in Secret World that will make you quite amazed and keep you glued to the game for hours on end.
The area of the Secret World is also quite impressive, which has Kingsmouth as its initial starting area. The other starting areas of the game would later be London, New York as well as Seoul. These are some of the exciting and the most wait worthy aspects of the game.
The game review avers that the game of Just Cause in its original avatar was quite a well accepted and liked game. There were many fans of the game and with good cause, or Just Cause. This is why there was a lot of excitement among some about the launch of Just Cause 2. There were of course some issues with the original version of Just Cause which some people wanted to look and see if it was any improvement in the latest version of the game. There are so many sequences in the game where you have to attempt and try and overthrow a corrupt government, while this sounds all so good, but there are some aspects of the game that are not quite great. For one, the game’s storyline is not unique or outstanding in any way. It is rather hackneyed and you have seen that and heard it eelier surely. In addition, you have factions that you cannot distinguish between which is a huge hindrance.
However, there are something’s about the game that are okay too. The grapple and parachute bit is cool and attractive. You will have to also contend with a hugely expansive game, which is a good thing.
There are some games that bring about a great deal of interest and excitement on the table, as these are extremely racy and fast paced. Red Steel was one such game that brought about a great deal of interest and also fast paced fun in its wake due to which it had millions of fans and followers around the globe. There were so many people who had to wait some bit to get to the game and they were willing to do so too. But now that Red Steel is back, it seems that people would like to take a peek at it too, to see if it is better than the original.
It seems as if those who look at Red Steel 2 expecting it to be like Red Steel will be in for a huge disappointment. This is because of the fact that Red Steel 2 only shares its name with Red Steel and nothing else. The new game is in fact much better than the original red Steel and hence there is no point looking for any comparisons as you cannot compare a new game with its older and more primitive version, this is futile and will only lead to a lot of disappointment at the end of the day.
There was hardly any chance of getting Golden Eye 007 on Xbox Live and this is perhaps why it is all the more feasible for the game of Perfect Dark to be released on Xbox Live Arcade. Rare has taken the trouble to ensure that the launch of Perfect Dark has been quire flawless as well as quite suitably taken care of indeed. This is one of the highlights of the launch of the game of Perfect Dark. There are also quite a few redeeming features of Perfect Dark which have always ensured that it is a favorite among players around the globe, for one, the game now has a lot of improvements in terms of the textures as well as the frame rate. This makes the game much smoother to play and quite interesting indeed. There are also quite a few multi-function weapons and gadgets that come along with multiplayer options that are quite inimitable to mention the least.
As far as the cons of the game Perfect Dark are concerned, the enemy in the Ai are rather weak and quite insipid that takes away from the game and does not add to its zing. The storyline seems rather hackneyed and clichéd and not something that you look out for.
Scrap Metal is a game that has aroused a great deal of interest in many players around the globe. This is quite understandable given the fact that this is a multiplayer game par excellence. There are a lot of people who prefer the game in the multi-player mode, even though there are others who think that they really dig the single player mode though it may be a bit too long for comfort. Some of the pros of this game are that it is quite simple in format and players can easily pick up the game at one of two shots and pay right through it without much of a sweat. Again, the game is also chaotic and yet racy in its multiplayer mode, which is quite a change from some of the other games that are quite boring.
In the cons of the game, you see that the single player mode is quite boring and does not lend to much excitement. The fact that your replace cars also means that you waste upgrade points. The presentation also leaves a whole lot to be desired, which is not what you expect from a game like Scrap Metal. So net net it is a rather playable game.
When it comes to games and game review, there are some things that you always or invariably notice about East European games. Yes, these games can be good at times and also interesting bit in many of the cases these games are mostly rather dark, and bleak. The background is set in shades of black and grey which means that you can hardly make out the figures and also the plot sometimes. This was true of Stalker a game as well as the new title which is called Metro 2033. These dark and dank elements seem to be present even in Metro 2033 and you can very well imagine as to the kind of effect that this has on the game overall and your mood in particular when and if you choose to play the game.
With Metro 2033, you have to travel up and down Moscow alleys where you meet up with and have to counter dangerous hordes. The weaponry is rather basic and very minimalistic which means that you do not get the chance to spray too much ammo. The game Metro 2033 is set in Moscow after much of the world has already been destroyed by a nuclear holocaust. But there are undesirable and hostile mutants that can do you serious harm.
There are some games that have very high voltage appeal and a lot of gamers who follow the game constantly. The thing is that these games are quite popular among players because of their unique features and many thrills that these games afford so readily, you will be happy to know that Command and Conquer is one such game. While the game has a number of followers as well as lots of fans, there is a requirement of the game that you have constant internet connection or else you will be booted out of the game and have to start all over again.
The constant internet connection is a requirement of this game in both the single and the multi player versions of the game. This is also similar to the internet connection requirement that the Ubisoft game also has, which is really not quite a happy situation for those who do not have constant internet connection. Now constant internet connection is a luxury in many places and countries, so does it mean that such people would have to think twice before playing Command And Conquer? Well there are no easy answers to this question, because this game is good but without good internet connection its worth dips drastically.
