Jutland

GAMESQUAD
5 January 2009
  • Conclusion: Jutland is aimed with precise accuracy at naval enthusiasts. That audience can be hard to please but should embrace this product with joy. Version 1.006 still raises questions about the game’s AI and gunnery accuracy. Storm Eagle Studios will address these issues as they have with their earlier product. Given its graphics, scale and accuracy, Jutland is the pinnacle of real-time tactical naval gaming.
  • Pros: Superb graphics; interesting scenarios and campaigns; fine replay value; accurate and detailed ships; improved interface; robust editor
  • Cons: Mediocre terrain graphics; restrictive copy protection; questionable AI

DEFCON: Everybody Dies Review

AtomicGamer
2 November 2006
  • Excerpt: Computer-room four star generals should be pleased with the latest real time offerings on hand for PC players. Company of Heroes , Supreme Commander , and the continuing adventures and re-releases in the Command and Conquer series all provide hope for the waning innovation in PC strategy. Does Defcon ? Let us find out together, you and I. Let me start by saying that I'd like to ignore the hype surrounding Defcon .

Expert Review

GamesFirst!
4 October 2006
  • Excerpt: Introversion scored big with Darwinia, a game well-known for its unorthodox graphics and approach. Now, the indy developers from Britain have released the next big thing: Defcon. Defcon puts players in control of a huge nuclear arsenal to duke out doomsday using an interface that looks straight out of the classic game/nuke movie, War Games. Would you like to play a game? How about Global Thermonuclear War? Get the full story from our intrepid strategist Chris G.
  • Pros: ups: Vast strategic depth coupled with simple gameplay, atmospheric graphics and sound, inexpensive
  • Cons: downs: Awkward unit selection, server selection, Steam

DEFCON Review

IGN
14 September 2006
  • Conclusion: DEFCON is fine testament to an independent developer willing to take a risk by creating games that tackle unsual ideas in thought-provoking, engaging and ultimately entertaining ways. Admittedly, DEFCON's concept isn't original in the traditional sense – the Cold War idea is ‘borrowed’ from the 1983 movie WarGames.

Defcon Review (PC)

Yet Another Review Site
7 June 2007
  • Excerpt: Shall we play a game? These days computer games and movies go pretty much hand in hand, whether it is a movie of a game or a game of a movie. But back in the 80′s that wasn’t so much the case. Sure there were movie tie in games, but not to the same scale we get now. In 1983 a film came out that had a unique premise. A young hacker finds his way into what he thinks is a computer game system.
  • Pros: Amazing strategy. Great music. Sweat inducing tension.
  • Cons: No real single player action to be had.

Battlefield 3

Tom's Games
18 October 2007
  • Summary: En préparation depuis des années, Battlefield 3 est enfin disponible pour révolutionner le monde du jeu d'action vue subjective, ses campagnes solo et ses modes multijoueurs... à moins que.
  • Pros: Mode multijoueur remarquable, Cartes réussies / bonnes sensations, Réalisation de grande classe, Solo qui va crescendo, Durée de vie intéressante, Challenge au rendez-vous en coop
  • Cons: Début de campagne solo poussif, Un mode coopératif trop gadget, IA et scripts peu convaincants, Plateforme Origin perfectible (PC), Réalisation multi en retrait (consoles)
