Summary: Parents need to know that this is a free downloadable third-person shooter for Windows PCs. The only obstacle placed before children trying to access the game is an “age gate” -- a dialogue box that simply asks players to enter their birth date (which can be easily fudged) before granting access to the software. This could be problematic, since it’s not a game for young kids.
Excerpt: It was a choice AceMcCoolname could only make once. To fight for the Royal Army or the National Army? The choice did not depend on ideals or philosophy, but upon that single most important concern: style. Battlefield Heroes is a multiplayer online third person shooter from EA and Easy Studios which has been kicking about for a while now . Released June 25 2009, it’s a bit of an oddity. For starters it’s marketed as a casual game.
Excerpt: The kings of dance games KONAMI have thrown away those huge dance mats and now want you to “get down” in front of the Kinect camera, but with Dance Central getting most of the publicity is this worth busting-a-move to? The first thing about Dance Evolution that jolts you into the game is your representation on the screen. The Kinect has cleverly cut out the background image of your abode and pasted you in full colour as one of the backing dancers.
Summary: This is fast becoming one of my favorite quick play, but playable for hours games, its fun and easy to play and you find yourself screaming at the screen when your opponent downs you certainly suitable for any age and most definitely even the casual gamer.
Excerpt: EA's been conducting some bold experiments with the Battlefield franchise these past couple of years. Battlefield Heroes is the most surprising by far. Few would have expected to see this venerable series applied to a cartoon shooter built around MMO-style progression mechanics. But though Battlefield Heroes may not cost money, your time is certainly valuable. Is it worth wiling away the hours here?
Excerpt: DICE has established a glowing reputation mostly due to the Battlefield series. Since Battlefield 1942 the games have featured exciting multiplayer combat, it infantry or vehicle-based and spawned a lot of imitators and sequels.
Excerpt: Doo Da Doo Doo, Da Doo Da Doo Doo! Battlefield is a series which a lot of PC gamers hold dear to their hearts, 1942 is still played by a ton of people but when D.I.C.E. decided to turn their attention to our low brow cousin the console gamer we were a little ticked off. But D.I.C.E. has made good on us by giving us this first of its kind third person shooter in the grand Battlefield universe.
