Battlefield: Bad Company

Hooked Gamers
30 June 2008
  • Conclusion: Battlefield: Bad Company is a perfect example of a talented developer taking an established franchise and fine tuning it to create a different experience. The new Frostbite Engine gives the destructibility of no other game out there. Online’s unique push and pull style of gameplay is very addicting. A much less serious story line is a welcome change to the now mundane “bad-ass marine” cliché that comes in so many games.

Zack & Wiki: Barbaros' Treasure

Hooked Gamers
5 November 2007
  • Conclusion: Despite any criticisms one may have for Zack and Wiki , disliking the game is not an easy thing to do. The game will captivate you from the very beginning, and not let you go until you see the credits scroll. All Wii owners, especially those feeling the lack of quality games for the console, should look into Zack and Wiki ; I can almost guarantee you will not be disappointed.

Age of Pirates: Caribbean Tales

Game Vortex
6 January 2007
  • Excerpt: Age of Pirates: Carribbean Tales is another take on the pirate genre, one made infamous by Sid Meier and his classic game Pirates! . However, besides the eye patches, tropical islands, and parrots, that’s about the only similarity between the two games. Produced by Playlogic International and developed by the Russian company Akella, we shall see how this title fairs in the rough waters of the game industry. Visually, this might be its strongest area.

  • Excerpt: Age of Pirates: Caribbean Tales is the latest title from Akella, a developer known for the work in developing games that feature the ruthless, blood-thirsty rebels of the sea; pirates. This latest title, a mixture of action adventure with some RPG elements, isn’t as impressive as one would have hoped.

GameSpot
13 October 2006
  • Summary: The life of a pirate must have been pretty rough, and being rough is one thing Age of Pirates: Caribbean Tales certainly nails down pat. This convoluted, buggy game greatly overextends itself, presenting an open-ended role-playing experience that combines ship-to-ship combat and on-foot exploration throughout the Caribbean islands during the golden age of piracy.
  • Pros: Open-ended gameplay features some interesting role-playing elements, Impressive-looking water and weather effects
  • Cons: Prone to crashing and random acts of weirdness, Slow, haphazard pace goes from sluggish sea battles to silly on-foot fights, Convoluted, awkward interface, Wildly inconsistent presentation quality

Age of Pirates: Caribbean Tales Review

GamingTrend
16 September 2006
  • Excerpt: Piracy has been a huge thing in the gaming industry ever since the creation of the floppy drive; however this particular Age of Pirates takes place long before the piracy we know of today. In this day and age of 3D engines and high resolution textures, actual pirate games are not that common. The first real taste of life on the high seas was with Sid Meier’s Pirates! which turned out to be a Game of the Year candidate for it’s solid gameplay and uncommon charm.
