Resistance 2

7 March 2006
  • Excerpt: When the PS3 launched two years ago there were a few games that caught the eyes of gamers and reviewers alike. One of those games was Resistance: Fall of Man, a game exclusive to Sony’s then new console. This was a FPS that offered an interesting take on the traditional aliens versus human storyline. It had a pretty good narrative and some matching gameplay which earned it a lot of praise.

  • Excerpt: Lionhead Studios is giving fans of tinsletown a chance to take control of their own studio in The Movies. You control Sims through a Tycoon game and deal with all the glitz, the glamour, the tantrums, and even the paparazzi. Anyone who follows the entertainment industry will get a kick out of this game and its well designed characters, but restrictions in the simulation prevent The Movies from being more realistic, and a real blockbuster.

  • Conclusion: THE VERDICT: Beware of The Space-Chickens garnered over $300,000, which isn't bad for the swinging 60's. Whilst we'd love to make a sequel we've found more earning potential in the adult entertainment industry. That's right - with careful scene selection and clever editing we can fulfil all of our childish desires. Do you hear us Peter Molyneux? Release The Porn Movies!

  • Excerpt: With the huge success of EA's blockbuster hit The Sims, developers have been trying to breathe new life into the "sim" genre that will pull players of EA's behemoth away. So far, few games have been successful; there have been a glut of business-oriented "tycoon" games, various city-building titles, and a few that take on The Sims directly (even if these games might include an R- or X-rated twist).

  • Excerpt: Product Description Imagine you could make any movie you wanted to. Imagine you could pluck someone from obscurity and turn them into a superstar. Imagine you had control of an entire movie studio, competing with other studios to create box office hits and predicting what audiences want—from epic action films to campy B-movies. With The Movies, you can make it big in Hollywood by building the ultimate movie studio and shooting the ultimate picture.

  • Excerpt: Unique and underrated Some gamers like to mix a little creativity in with their gaming experience: if you are one of them, you will embrace The Movies right away. Picture this: You’re the head of a movie studio in Hollywood at the very dawn of the industry, and all the history of film is ahead of you, yours to create and transform as you please.
  • Pros: Your film directing fantasy come true, Different genres and practically limitless possibilities in costumes and sets, Good actor and director system, Gratifying award system
  • Cons: Content of movies not truly linked to its success, Training system can be tedious and is a bad example of micro-management, All in all just a few interesting scenes to choose from, Chronic personel shortage
