Game Description: Metal Gear Acid is a whole new take on the blockbuster Metal Gear franchise. A plane full of hostages is going to die, unless they're given a mysterious secret weapon called "Pythagoras". When the U.S. tracks down "Pythagoras" to a remote lab in Africa, they send in Solid Snake to retrieve it. In this card-based adventure, strategy is everything. Use the Weapon card to take out enemies, the Action card to duck & hide from enemies on patrol, or call in support with the Character card.

I suspect that there is no genre more rigidly formulaic than Real Time Strategy (RTS) games. Now, this can be said of almost any genre, but the interesting thing about RTS games is how similar the specific actions that the game is made up of are. Start a level with no troops. Build a base. Gather resources. Build a bigger base. Build an army. Crush your enemy with an overwhelming attack. Repeat for the next fifteen years.

Enjoying this game requires a compulsive temperament and a perverse sense of humor.
Game Description: You're a malevolent mastermind bent on achieving global domination through the construction of the ultimate doomsday device. Build a secret base, gain notoriety by completing daring missions, repel the forces of justice in real-time combat, and develop evil super weapons to complete your nefarious master plan. Evil Genius is a tongue in cheek take on the spy thrillers of the '60s, offering you the unique opportunity to play the villain as you control a secret island fortress complete with powerful henchmen, loyal minions, ice-cold beauty queens, and a host of hilarious gizmos.

It's rare that I see a game so good that I don't know where to start praising it. Evil Genius is just that good. A game this good can be a challenge to review, since it wears all of its best points right on its sleeve. How on earth do I find something unique to say about it? The best way to look at it is through the filter of my often too-strictly moral interpretation of videogame messages and implications. This is a game that grinningly celebrates mass murder, torture, and the cruel megalomaniacal governing of the entire world. And I didn't question any of it for a second.
Game Description: Take control of Ding Chavez, leader of the world's premier anti-terrorist unit. A Russian group has decided to start a war to restore the former Soviet Union to its previous glory. They've kidnapped rocket scientists to obtain their devastating technologies, and Team Rainbow has to stop them. Enter Black Arrow's new, private team lobbies for new tactics and develop strategies before online matches begin.

All I've ever asked is for First Person Shooters to be more realistic. By the release of Duke Nukem 3D I was sick and tired of the conventions of the genre. Shooting people dozens of times without incurring a single flinch, apocalyptic explosions that left my enemies unmarked and with full faculties until a single shot from a tiny pistol did that critical last hit point of damage and they exploded in the distinctive, gruesome, and incredibly familiar shower of guts marked the end of their lives.
