Tropico is one of a kind!

Andyman | April 26, 2011 | Review of Tropico 3 DNS

Being an absolute ruler has its advantages, especially in Tropico! The good and bad parts of this game reside in the economy. You really have to balance your spending and how much your island is making. Every month in the game you will receive an amount from both Russia and the States, and if you go into debt, you will start receiving less from your supportive countries. This game really makes you think how much effort and trouble go into an economy. It can REALLY get frustrating at times when your trying to meet quotas, and also trying not to go into debt. But once you get the hang of your little island economy you can REALLY start doing some fun things!

Beautiful Game But...

Andyman | April 26, 2011 | Review of Aliens vs Predator Pre

This AVP reboot has its good sides, bad sides, ugly sides, and VERY ugly sides. The Single-player campaign was very good for all species, but it seems like Rebellion spent a lot more time on the marine campaign, it was WAY more polished. I especially see this in that there's the "Survival" mode which is fun, but its marine only. The multiplayer is where this game lacks... the concept was great, but the coding really failed. The lag just makes you want to tear your hair out. There ARE dedicated servers, but they never made it out of beta!
