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.

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.

Pirates of the Caribbean- The Legend of Jack Sparrow

ME Gamers
24 January 2007
  • Excerpt: First Impressions My reaction is I am always weary of playing games that have been based on movies – especially when the movies are box office hits. Game developers can either add value to the film’s name, or drag it completely in the dirt.

  • 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...
  • 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
