Sid Meier's masterwork

malk | Aug. 7, 2011 | Review of Sid Meier's Civilization® IV Complete Cap

One of Meier's greatests works and Civilization at it's best. Extremely addictive and fun with lots of customization so your nation can advance through the ages the way you want it, be it as a powerful military nation who conquers all by force of arms, a quiet nation secretely discovering the secrets of going into space or even a nation with a culture so great that other cities want to join you without you even lifting a finger. Be ready to see hours fly by as you manage your cities, lead your soldiers to war and prepare your space ship to Alpha Centauri. What will YOUR civilization stand for?

Great underrated game.

malk | May 27, 2011 | Review of Cryostasis

You'll hear few people talking about this game and that is a shame. With beautiful graphics, great atmosphere, good storyline some inovative and interesting aspects the game sure makes up for it's flaws.

The ability to go back in time and change a person's fate, altering the present and enabling you to go through some areas, sure it's a refreshing new feature for the genre and adds for the storytelling, the health system can be anoying at times since you'll be running around all the time looking for a torch or a lamp to heat yourself up but it is a great change of pace for those tired of games with health regeneration and it adds to the atmosphere of being in the artic. The shooting mechanics are weird but nothing game breaking but leaves you wishing it was more polished. The visual it's great and the ice melting animation it's amazing but it has some serious performance issues that make it's recommend system configuration unreliable.

Although it has many flaws it's storyline and atmosphere makes up for all of them and leaves us with a great game that was largely skipped by the gaming community.

Total war at it's best.

malk | May 25, 2011 | Review of Empire: Total War

This game it's a must have for any Total war fan, including new features that are both fun and challenging even for the most hardened medieval and rome: total war veteran.

Research new technologys and schools of thought like bayonets and humanism or steal them from your rivals to keep your edge on the battlefield and economy. Explore and conquest the the Americas and India while keeping your trade routes safe from pirates and privateers in the new "Sea battle" option. Manage your many buildings and growing towns across your regions and Fight for freedom against the british oppression in the "road to independence" campaing or be the master of Europe, America and India in the grand campaing.

Will all those new features, and still maintaining the ones that made the previous games memorable, ready you trihorn hat and load your musket because either if you're a total war fan or a newcommer to the franchise, this game will keep you for hours
