Conclusion: As mentioned before, bio-medical enhancements play a prominent role in the game, with something called Nectar being the hip, new drug that all of the cool soldiers for hire are popping. These will help players in a variety of ways, but the substance also has its side effects, which need to be considered, and also play a role in Haze’s story.
Looking to Hire One Evil Overlord, Do-gooders Need Not Apply
1 March 2010
Excerpt: For years, RPGamers have donned the boots of heroes, setting forth on epic quests to rid the world of evil and wrongdoing, and frankly the villains are just getting fed up. These plucky heroes barge into their homes, loot and plunder their hard-earned possessions, slay them, and head off into the sunset to live happily ever after; but no more!
Excerpt: Being evil is often seen as a bad thing, but how often do we really get to see things from the other side of the fence? Take the characters in Codemasters' Overlord. These evil doers go about their daily life with a gleeful smile on their faces, relishing every moment of their frowned upon activities. Is it that these brutes simply love inflicting pain on others or is Overlord perhaps not quite as evil as the story suggests?
Conclusion: The anti-climactic storyline may be a bit painful to watch for those that take the series to heart. It is a pity that Electronic Arts failed to realize that we actually care about what happens to GDI, Nod and even the new Scrin faction. The new units are nothing to write home about and the campaign fails to inspire. This would normally lead to the conclusion that Command & Conquer 3: Kane’s Wrath disappoints in so many areas that it would be folly to buy the game.
Excerpt: Developed by Triumph Studios, Overlord is a third person action-adventure-RPG-God hybrid where you play the role of overlord, who is quite powerful but also ruthless. The back story revolves around the death of the original overlord who was killed by the Seven Lords, who have since taken over the land.
Conclusion: Ninja Gaiden Sigma is an exquisite game filled with jaw dropping battles and controller throwing rage. A master Ninja and a smoking hot friend round out the cast of characters in this marvel. Armed to the teeth with shiny authentic Ninja attire as well as some fantasy magic to jazz things up, the developers did a great job of making you feel like a total badass slicing heads off demons and ninja’s alike.
