  • Conclusion: So… if building a successful city takes very little planning and money is never in short supply, the Societal Energies will make things more difficult, right? Well, no. I am sorry to say that the Energies are really nothing more than resources and gathering them is no challenge at all.

  • Conclusion: Ace Combat 6: Fires of Liberation is an excellent example of what third-party Japanese games can accomplish on the Xbox 360. The game will definitely be the dominant flight game across all the consoles for the foreseeable future, that is until Ace Combat 7 arrives.

  • Excerpt: I had pretty high hopes for 1701 A.D., given that you were colonizing a new world in the 17th and 18th centuries. I guess I had visions of Civilization dancing in my head. And while 1701, the sequel of sorts to 1602 A.D.

Great design and atmosphere make this game about Caribbean colonization one of the better city builders to come down the pike in some time.

  • Summary: Based on the date, the galleon on the box cover, and the pirate craze that's taken over pop culture thanks to a certain Captain Jack Sparrow, it's easy to think that 1701 A.D. is about flying the Jolly Roger on the Spanish Main.
  • Pros: Strikes a nice balance between hands-on gaming and micromanagement, Intuitive interface, Wide range of scenarios and open-ended continuous play mode, Tutorials cover just about everything that the game has to offer
  • Cons: Too much emphasis on unsatisfying combat, No one playing the game online

  • Summary: Достоинства подчеркнуты, часть недостатков благополучно утоплена в морях. Особенно приятно, что игра лишена некоторой доли занудства, свойственной предшественникам. Иначе говоря, 1701 A.D. — один из немногих примеров удачного развития стратегической серии.

  • Summary: Kaum eine andere Manager-Serie hat so viele Höhen und Tiefen erlebt wie 'Anstoss' – von sensationell bis extrem bugverseucht war schon alles dabei. Mit dem neuen 'Anstoss 2006' will Ascaron nun endlich alles richtig machen und scheute nicht vor einer Präsentation im heimischen Gütersloh zurück, wo...

  • Summary: Die neueste Ausgabe des fast schon legendären Fußball-Managers scheint in die richtige Richtung zu gehen. Die Neuerungen geben mehr Spieltiefe, ohne das Ganze zu kompliziert werden zu lassen und die fehlenden Lizenzen lassen sich dank des komfortablen Editors wohl verschmerzen.
