Flight Simulator X: Discover Europe
12 September 2010
Excerpt: No sooner than landing in the South Pole on our recent Pole to Pole excursion did we then need to dust down our snow laden flight jacket and take to the skies once again with Flight Simulator X: Discover Europe. As with the previous First Class Simulations add-ons Discover Europe is all about the experience.
Excerpt: Before fanboys bemoan the less than perfect rating given to the latest instalment of Metal Gear from Kojima Productions, Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker was judged for overall experience for gamers as a whole. Released June 18th, loyal fans will probably have already purchased and completed MGS: PW up to and including the Monster Hunter levels. This is for the rest of us; those who know of the series and are wary of the fanatic loyalty it inspires.
Excerpt: Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker may be a portable game but at one point in time it was Metal Gear Solid 5, so obviously it’s always been intended to be an important addition to the franchise. It’s also the first smaller scale game in the series for Hideo Kojima to be involved in and, for this reason alone, it can sit quite confidently next to its big brothers with its head held high.
Excerpt: First Impressions My reaction is Metal Gear Solid. The name that makes gamers go into a frenzy. So when it was announced that MGS: Peacewalker would be coming to the PSP, it generated mixed feelings among gamers on whether it would do justice to the series.
Excerpt: Supposedly, Metal Gear Solid 4 was going to be Hideo Kojima’s swansong for his celebrated series, which launched in 1988. Upon MGS4 ’s release in 2008, Kojima announced his retirement from Metal Gear , imploring his younger staffers to pick up the torch. Then 2009 brought the announcement of Peace Walker , an MG prequel set in Central America during the Cuban Missile Crisis’ fallout, and taking ample advantage of Costa Rica’s status as a demilitarized nation.
Excerpt: If legendary game designer Will Wright sat down one day with the intention of figuring out which of his games he liked best, only to realize that he just couldn’t choose a single aspect of virtual existence he most enjoyed tinkering with, then Spore might very possibly have become the order of the day. Instead of choosing just one, Will Wright would simply sim everything .
Summary: The sultans of stealth, Kojima Productions have resurrected their genre-defining Metal Gear series on PSP this month with Peace Walker, a ‘70s-set skulking epic that riffs on the classic Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater PS2 sequel and the equally stellar Portable Ops on PSP. Thrusting you into utterly absorbing campaign, Peace Walker plonks you in Naked Snake’s war-torn combat boots once more in package that strings a solid single-player experience together with two to...
Excerpt: Dans la tradition Metal Gear Solid, Metal Gear Solid - Peace Walker plongera le joueur dans une série de scénarios de combat, alors que se déploie une terrible machination qui vise la domination du monde. Il s'agira pour les joueurs de s'infiltrer dans une série d'objectifs stratégiques...
Excerpt: Emboîtant le pas à Metal Gear Solid : Portable Ops, Peace Walker se veut bien plus ambitieux. Ainsi, si le titre de la Kojima Team exploite et fait exploser le concept du jeu d'infiltration/gestion, il s'attache à apporter sa pierre à l'édifice de Metal Gear Solid. Le résultat, imparfait mais diablement généreux, nous montre que la PSP en a encore sous le capot.
