cy25 | May 28, 2013 | Review of Virtua Tennis 4

i bought this because i am a tennis freak but with the move this is not a very realistic game. you can swing any way and you will hit the ball back. gets boring quick no challenge. If you want a sports tennis game for the move get sports champions 2. the tennis in that beats this game by 100%

Easily the best Truck sim available.

cy25 | May 27, 2013 | Review of Euro Truck Simulator 2

First let me say that I rated this a 5, not because it's the best game ever made but because it's one hell of an excellent Truck Sim. In my opinion easily the best truck sim ever produced.

The trucks not only handle great with a Steering wheel and pedals but surprisingly also handled great with a mouse steering and keyboard hotkeys.

The terrain is absolutely beautiful when everything is set to the highest settings and even on my Asus G75 Laptop computer I was receiving constant 50FPS performance. The cab of the trucks are beautifully detailed with fully working guages and other than a small hiccup where I saw one of the wheels of my truck not spinning for a few moments the outside details of the trucks are equally beautiful to look at. Easily the best Truck sim available.

To be fair...

cy25 | May 25, 2013 | Review of SimCity (EU)

Alright, so I played the demo...so some may find my review 'null'. But I am going to try and be fair here. People are giving the game horrible reviews mainly because they haven't been able to play the game yet due to these horrible connection issues. I will admit that this horrible service and launch does deserve to bring the game down a few points. This 'always online' stuff is horrible for the single player. BUT I think someone needs to step up and actually talk about the actual gameplay. From playing the demo and watching videos gameplay, the game has been simplified a lot in terms of UI. This is a good thing! It is easy to construct roads and zone areas. You can add landmarks and even add additions to things such as hospitals and fire stations. When you can actually play the game, it is fun and addicting. The multiplayer component is pretty neat as well in terms of sharing resources and creating a whole region with specialized cities. Each city can be specialized in many ways - you can make a gambling city, educational city, industrial city..etc.

disappointing given it's been 8 years since the last game in the

cy25 | May 18, 2013 | Review of Airline Tycoon 2

I as other reviewers here previously owned Airline Tycoon Evolution. I long awaited this game and had it preordered. Overall experience is that this is a good game, but surprisingly lacks some of the good features of the old version. If some of the cons like loading times and choppy UI will be corrected in future patches this will be an even better game.

Pros: -Updated airports -Much better voice-overs in English version of the game! -Nice 3D graphics -Not too big install on the HD -Highly customizable planes -Sandbox mode (the old game also had this, but still a big advantage)

Cons: -Less features - Many good features taken away from the old versions like stock and fuel markets. -Loading times - They aren't the worst, but still not fast for such an easy game. -No cargo routes - Cargo routes were a big plus when establishing your airline, no need to upgrade the seats when you're flying cargo :) -Graphics - Graphics are choppy and often lags for no apparent reason.

cy25 | May 18, 2013 | Review of Tropico 4

Tropico was never the deepest strategy game around, but it was one of the most fun, and the humour returns as strong as ever. Radio broadcasts poke fun at your decisions while cruel caricatures pop up with their requests for specific buildings, more exports or just a sackful of cash. These requests now appear as floating exclamation mark icons that can be clicked, then accepted or dismissed as you see fit. You can go out of your way to placate every faction, balancing out your capitalist excess with concessions to the environmentalists and placating the intellectuals while pandering to the religious, but the game is always happy to plunge your ratings for murky reasons, forcing you to spin more plates ever faster.

Newcomers to the series will find much to enjoy
