BloodRayne: Betrayal Review

GamerNode
14 September 2011
  • Excerpt: Everyone’s favourite Dhampir is back, but she’s not in the best of shape. BloodRayne: Betrayal marks the return for the nine year-old franchise in the form of a completely 2D side-scrolling platformer/hack-and-slash. This new direction for the series is an interesting departure from the third-person action format of the original two games, but just because it’s interesting doesn’t mean it’s a good game.
  • Pros: Great art style and sound
  • Cons: Boring and repetitive gameplay, Demands perfection with imprecise controls, Egregious platforming

Metroid Prime 3: Corruption

Hooked Gamers
31 August 2007
  • Conclusion: Depending on your faithfulness to the Metroid franchise, you may have started to notice that Retro has taken the franchise down different avenues than those explored in the previous two games. This may infuriate you or make you happy, depending on where your allegiances lie. Even though I consider myself to be a 'hardcore' Metroid fan, I find myself absolutely loving Corruption despite its tendency to stray off the familiar track.

Space Empires: V

Strategy Informer
22 July 2007
  • Conclusion: Overall then, SEV doesn’t bring anything new to the table but it is a refinement of the genre. It has all the features you’d expect or want from a turn-based space strategy game and it does them all very well.

Space Empires V

The Gamers Temple
20 May 2007
  • Excerpt: Space is not for wimps, and neither is Space Empires V. The game has a lot to it, but the game is pretty complex and the learning curve is steep. You can see the newbs walking out of the airlocks right from the game’s tutorial, which features an encyclopedia of text to read through and has a propensity for crashing out to the desktop at random.

  • Summary: Straybolt takes a look at Space Empires V and decides if the game is a worthy addition to the 4X genre, or just another pretender to the grand throne.

Expert Review

GamesFirst!
4 January 2007
  • Excerpt: Space Empires V doesn't exactly revolutionize the world of 4X gaming, but it does offer a multitude of micromanagement options, if that's your thing. The space empire building title lets you explore the universe and meet strange races with one of the most extensive diplomacy systems we've ever seen, but is plagued with bugs that often get in the way.
  • Pros: ups: cool looking, lots of customization
  • Cons: downs: too much customization, weak AI, bugs/glitches

Space Empires V Review

GamerNode
5 November 2006
  • Excerpt: Since it debuted back in 1993, the Space Empires franchise has always been about three things: maintaining an in-depth (and punishing) space strategy game, mods and pleasing the fans. The first three games were shareware, but after huge fan support Space Empires IV picked up a publisher and was released in 2001. The fifth title in the series, Space Empires V , is now available in stores and continues the long tradition of strategy love.
