Final Fantasy CC: My Life as a King

  • Conclusion: My Life as a King is one of the best downloadable titles available and it definitely ranks among the most addicting I have ever played. After clearing the main storyline, you can go back and download extra content online using your Wii Points. Some of the downloadable content is a little expensive but you can always download the more affordable content instead.

  • Excerpt: The Settlers: Rise Of An Empire is a re-release for PC gamers. Those who’ve played and enjoyed previous games in the series will be happy to see this budget return, but is there really anything to pull new gamers into this City Sim/Real Time Strategy (RTS) ? Graphically the game is beautiful. Detailed environments, characters and building styles keep you visually entertained throughout the game.

  • Excerpt: Town/City building games were very popular back in the day with titles like SimCity, Caesar (and later Zeus and Pharaoh) getting a new sequel every year or two. Yes, those were really the times for us strategists who prefer to count the coins in our treasury and make tax cuts instead of sending troops into the fray.

  • Conclusion: Jeśli są to przede wszystkim zmiany i ulepszenia rozgrywki, Wschodnie Królestwa „leżą” na całej linii. Co nieco jednak oferują. Pierwszą i zarazem tytułową nowością jest tropikalna strefa klimatyczna. Ciepły i wilgotny klimat wpływa nieznacznie na sposób prowadzenia rozgrywki. Cały rok dzieli się na porę suchą oraz deszczową. Gdy padają ulewne deszcze, woda z naturalnych zbiorników nie nadaje się do picia, a rwące rzeki nie pozwalają się przekroczyć.

Die Siedler - Aufbruch der Kulturen

10 September 2008
  • Conclusion: Neben der offensichtlichsten Änderung, der Grafik, wurde hier nur Feintuning betrieben. Besonders interessant ist die neue Option der Opferung, hier kann man überraschende Aktionen ins Spiel einbauen und den Gegner ein wenig ärgern. Leider wurden aber manche Mängel der Vorgänger beim Feintuning übersehen. So können wir z.B.
