Excerpt: So what have you been doing with your spare time? If you’ve been gaming, you’ve probably been trying to save the world, or some such noble pursuit. Not me. I’ve been controlling the fates of millions, and trying to take OVER the planet, living out my megalomania fantasies through DreamCatcher’s strategy game called SuperPower.
Summary: This game was a blast. Anyone who liked the original Centipede in any way will love this new, updated version. Atari really outdid themselves with their awesome graphics and sounds. The Arcade and Adventure options of play were really cool and refreshing, while the 3 different views in the Adventure mode were really fun. This game is a lot of fun, and I recommend it to every type of gamer out there who appreciates something simple but fun.

Excerpt: In this multiplayer space-combat game you can choose from one of several different factions, which fight among the others, all squabbling over the remaining resources critical to survival: food, water, fuel, and the Alephs (unique wormholes for travelling to different systems than Sol system). You'll enter environments rich with asteroids, planets, novas, nebulae, and naturally occurring wormholes.
Excerpt: Been looking for something more challenging than Space Combat against a predictable artificial intelligence? Enjoy the thrill of mining for resources and then using those resources to fuel your war efforts? Like the thought of team play against up to six other teams at once? Then perhaps Microsoft's new multiplayer online space extravaganza - Allegiance deserves a look!
Excerpt: Hasbro has split the game into two completely different modes of gameplay - arcade and adventure. Fans of the old Centipede will immediately feel at home in arcade mode. It is basically the same as the classic but viewed from 3/4 top down angle and in 3D. I would have liked to see a 2D game mode just like the original for nostalgic purposes but unfortunately this option was not included.
