Excerpt: Big Mutha Truckers is an arcade game that puts you behind the wheel of 20-ton, 60-foot-long big rigs as they cruise coast to coast and everywhere in between.You drive a semi-truck from town to town, picking up loads, and delivering them to other towns. You get challenged to races from other truckers. The goal is to make the most money in a 60 day period. There are some other goals in the game, but this is your main deal.
Excerpt: Commandos 3: Destination Berlin is already third instalment in Pyro's legendary tactical strategy series. I've played all the previous games in the Commandos series and couldn't wait for this one to come out. Now that I have it and it's not so good as I expected. Let's see what you can expect from this sequel.
Excerpt: Why subject us poor gamers to another evil incarnation of the famous, infamous, Commandos series? I’ll go ahead and say it now: this game is difficult. Evil hard. Mind-numbingly, white-knuckled evil hard with a capital “F” for Frustration, a capital “F” also used for one other, less friendly expletive. Anyone who has played either of the first two games in the series knows this, but for anyone who has not, consider it a warning: there are hard times ahead.
Excerpt: Commandos 3: Destination Berlin is, as its name implies, the third of the Commandos games. All three have had the same basic premise, that you control a small group of specially trained soldiers (the commandos) and use them to infiltrate Nazi bases and generally make life difficult for the World War II bad guys. But with two games, not to mention an expansion pack, preceding it, was there anywhere for Commandos 3 to go?
Excerpt: You'd expect larger-than-life adventures from a squad of superhuman World War II commandos, and Commandos 3 delivers: Central Berlin, a bombed-out Stalingrad, a train packed with stolen art masterpieces, and the beaches of Normandy are all on the menu. There's nothing pedestrian about such assignments, and all 10 mission locations are as tough as they are memorable.
Conclusion: Well, boys and girls, Commandos 3: Destination Berlin is not that far from release now. We've played a great deal of it in the past few days and it proved to be a satisfying experience. Fans will no doubt have a blast, getting into action with their favorite characters once more. Other gamers may enjoy the game's unique RTS stealth action elements, which have always been one of the series' most notable qualities.
Conclusion: The sound, from what I heard of it, was impressive, with appropriate bangs, whumps, and rich explosions. The voiceovers are notably improved from the previous two games, with consistent accents (for a change), and just enough over-the-top gung-ho about them. Just about every modern WWII game attempts a playable D-Day landing scene, and Commandos is an exception only in the quality of its execution.
