Conclusion: Overall Impression - 7 / 10 Not a bad game overall. Gets a little boring after a couple of times playing the course. Was a pretty cool idea to make a game of the toughest 18 holes in the country, but the fact that there are only 18 playable holes really sucks.
Excerpt: We have a special guest reviewer with us today. A man who's no stranger to epic battles himself. He's a Hollywood actor and director. Let's have a warm welcome for the one and only, Mel Gibson! (applause) Jimmy Clydesdale: Thank you for joining us Mr. Gibson.
playing a few months of Civil War II
I decided to try out AGEOD’s other games. The first game I wanted to try was
Birth of America 2 as it covered one of my favorite time periods … The American
Revolution. Now this game was made years before Civil War II and I had to ask the question.
Conclusion: So After spending hours and hours of playing Birth of America 2 I must say this is now my go to American Revolution war game. Not only is it addicting, fun and epic, but it is by far the best period game I’ve played in a long while.
Conclusion: Unfortunately the difficulty you choose is ultimately going to be responsible with how much fun you have with the game. Too easy and the game instantly becomes noticeably repetitive, too hard and you’ll get frustrated.
Excerpt: Gladiatorial Combat has been a favorite for spectators ever since Roman times, when people were mercilessly thrown into the arenas to fight it out for their freedom. We may have come a long way since then, but the spectacle of the arena lives on, especially in our entertainment media.
Conclusion: It fails to excite or to engage, with a number of its systems feeling underdeveloped, and thus unnecessary, combining to create a humdrum affair. You upgrade your stats and your armour, but your character never feels personal to you, and there's no defining story to keep you interested.
Excerpt: Clan of Champions , the second NIS America title available for PC download, is a serious-minded effort from the developers at Aquire (most notable for their work on early Tenchu titles and the Way of the Samurai series).
Pros: Extensive weapon tinkering, Distinct ranged and melee fighting styles, Targeting specific body parts for a beatdown
Cons: Lack of varied environments, Awkward menu interface, Battling the same few enemies ad nauseam
Conclusion: With out a doubt this is a game for the fans. The updates are still significant, but they do nothing to broaden the games appeal. History enthusiasts and the fan base will probably like this new instalment, even if it may seem a little aesthetically outdated.
