Heroes over Europe

Hooked Gamers
27 September 2009
  • Conclusion: Heroes over Europe is an interesting if flawed title for players looking for something a little different to play without venturing outside the realm of Nazi-killing. The single player campaign doesn’t warrant a second play through unless you are achievement/trophy hunting and the multiplayer experience is nowhere to be found given that everyone else right now is off playing Halo 3: ODST .
  • Pros: Fun arcade-oriented gameplay
  • Cons: Nonexistent multiplayer community, convoluted singleplayer experience

Pirates of the Burning Sea Review

VideoGamer.com
9 September 2008
  • Excerpt: Pirates of the Burning Sea sounds like a great idea - it's the Pirates of the Caribbean MMO we've always wanted in everything but name. The appeal is clear. Create and become a pirate, probably something along the lines of Johnny Depp's Captain Jack Sparrow, and do piratey things, like drink rum, fend off waves of fancy British Empire foot soldiers and arrrrr a lot.

Slightly flawed, huge online RPG for pirate fans.

Common Sense Media
8 September 2008
  • Summary: Parents need to know that the game has bloody swordfights, gunfights at sea, some mild cursing, and a fair amount of alcohol references. However, the biggest concern is the same as with any other online game of this genre -- it's easy to get "hooked" since the game is, in essence, designed to never be truly beaten. This in turn, keeps players paying the monthly subscription fee to play.

Getting Your Feet Wet

GIN
14 July 2008
  • Excerpt: I saw an ad for a Massive Multiplayer Online (MMO) game called Pirates of the Burning Sea (PotBS) many months ago online when I was crazy busy studying for a Microsoft certification upgrade, and I mentioned it to my editor as a game he (or I) might be interested in trying out. Then I promptly forgot all about it. And then about two months ago, I was handed a box at our weekly staff meeting.

Pirates of the Burning Sea

Strategy Informer
4 July 2008
  • Conclusion: There’s no doubt that Flying Lab have created the best online sea-faring adventure there is for players to get their fix of the Caribbean with such a large, intricate and growing community.  Battling in the name of empires has stirred up some fierce patriotism and its fun to defend or lay siege for the glory of your nation.  The biggest flaws are the UI and lack of a robust tutorial system which is enough to cripple interest and morale of a new player.

Killzone 2

Game Boyz
3 July 2008
  • Excerpt: There is no doubt that leading up to the release of Killzone 2 that expectations were high for this Sony exclusive shooter. From the infamous video that was played at E3 in 2005 to Sony’s claims that it would be the next ‘big thing’ in first person shooters. I had a chance to preview the game on multiple occasions in different forms and I honestly had some hope that the game could live up to the lofty expectations placed upon it.

You're in for the long haul, and possibly a keehaul...

Cheat Code Central
2 June 2008
  • Conclusion: With Pirates of the Burning Sea, you're in for the long haul, possibly a keelhaul. The premise is fueled by historical accuracy, so there is a lot of realism to the gameplay, yet this isn't just a game for nerds. It's deep, but the curve is gradual, which will accommodate a wide range of gamers. Alright now matey, you've heard enough, now off we ye.
