Excerpt: Ahh, Playboy magazine. With its biting articles and broad coverage of topics, is it a magazine for the more sophisticated gentleman that just so happens to have pictures of naked women in, or is it one for the Dirty Macs brigade? The purists would argue that it is too arty to be porn (i.e.
Excerpt: Playboy: The Mansion is a “god-game,” where you play from above, controlling Hugh Hefner first and foremost. But you also have direct control over building, remodeling, and upgrading The Playboy Mansion . Think of it as Hugh Hefner meets The Sims . The models are nicely detailed -- not overly so, but well enough as the game is primarily played from an overview vantage point.
Excerpt: Since The Sims is one of the most successful gaming franchises of all time, it's not surprising that many companies have tried to cash in on the game's unique formula. The latest company to rip-off The Sims and try to make a buck is Playboy, who has teamed up with Arush Entertainment and Cyberlore Studios to put you into Hugh Hefner's slippers.
Excerpt: First off take note that "Hugh" seems to be rather... unrealistic. Yes. This game takes place at the beginning of the "empire" so he should be young, but does he age during gameplay? I bet not! Second note that your "World" is the most limited thing you've ever seen! You have the Mansion grounds, and later unlockable "sections" of the mansion, but then again you don't need to leave... the world will come to you.
Summary: Every Blokes dream can now be a reality (well, almost!). Ubisoft at last have managed to produce a game that will get a few men/boys a little hot under the collar and make them wonder what hides behind the â€œstarsâ€? on front of â€œspecialâ€? magazines on the top shelf!
Conclusion: One part of the game which seemed pretty shallow in comparison to the rest of the game was the romantic relationships you could spark between people. After getting a woman drunk enough, and by flexing your muscles at her, it’s pretty damn easy to jump into bed with her, or the sofa, or the shower, or pretty much anywhere that’s available.
Pros: Great game premise., A lot of technical detail., Good music., You play as the Playboy King!
Cons: Graphics aren’t too great., Sex relationships are a let-down., -, annoying AI.
Summary: Playboy: The Mansion isn't without its flaws and could have been done much better, but those who enjoy The Sims and don't mind some adult entertainment should check this title out. Let's hope they make a sequel one day...
Summary: Aliens vs. Predator zeigt deutlich, wie schnell die Wertung eines Spiels aufgrund an sich kleinerer Mängeln entscheidend nach unten gezogen werden kann. Wie aus dem obigen Text klar ersichtlich wird, findet man fast überall Verbesserungsmöglichkeiten und damit letztlich auch gerechtfertigten Grund zur Kritik. Insbesondere in Anbetracht des durchaus hohen Potentials, welches Aliens vs. Predator während des Spielens offenbart, ist dies natürlich extrem bedauerlich.
