Arkanoid DS

Hooked Gamers
5 July 2008
  • Conclusion: In Japan Arkanoid DS comes bundled with a Paddle Controller. This spinner peripheral mimics the arcade version’s weighted knob and is used to move the paddle. Taito put considerable effort into making it, but it is not included and you can’t buy it outside of Japan.

30 December 2006
  • Excerpt: Even from an early age there seems to be an unconscious urge to build. Whether it's Lego, Play-doh or even a bed fort; it's something we've all done. Which I think goes a long way to explaining the popularity of games like Civilization and Populous- games where construction is key.

  • Excerpt: Stronghold 2, an introduction. With strategy games containing less and less resource management in recent years it was great to see Firefly Studios' Stronghold. The game offered both a solid resource management system and enjoyable battles.

The Armchair Empire
31 July 2005
  • Conclusion: be seen by reviewing statistics that show how your peasants rate your ability to keep a clean castle, provide entertainment, religion, different food types etc. In this campaign there is very little combat, and the focus is more on gathering, or creating a certain amount of a good within an allotted...

The Wargamer
29 June 2005
  • Excerpt: There are several additions to Stronghold 2 that, on the back of the box, appear enticing. The game is now presented in full, rotatable, zoomable 3D, which in most cases is a big plus.

Stronghold 2

The Wargamer
29 June 2005
  • Conclusion: Gamers looking for a compelling medieval warfare and castle-building game would do far better with the original Stronghold or Medieval: Total War . Despite the numerous seemingly significant changes made in this latest version (Kingmaker mode, 3D graphics, etc), Stronghold 2 is not nearly as...
