What a better way to start the weekend with than with some good old-fashioned 1920's gangster thumb-breaking! Only a week away from its release, Kalypso has decided to share a slice of its version of Atlantic City with a PC d...

Review: Tropico 4: Modern Times
by Maurice Tan

After Haemimont rejuvenated the Tropico series with Tropico 3 and its Absolute Power expansion, Tropico 4 ended up being another great city builder, if not a huge leap forward for the series. While the changes to gameplay and UI streamlining were welcome, it didn't feel like you were playing a completely new game in last year's sequel.

Now, El Presidente strikes back at his critics as (s)he future-proofs the island nations in Tropico 4: Modern Times.

Review: Jagged Alliance: Back in Action photo
Review: Jagged Alliance: Back in Action
by Josh Tolentino

Ask any old-school PC gamer about his favorite tactical games, and more often than not you'll find a Jagged Alliance title near the top of the list. It's a name held in nearly as high regard as X-COM or Syndicate, and for good reason. Sir-Tech's classic series combined impressive depth with character and personality, cementing its place in the pantheon of all-time PC greats.

This makes the the job of Jagged Alliance: Back in Action all the more monumental, because not only does it lay claim to that revered name, but also to its legacy, for it is a direct remake of Jagged Alliance 2, rather than some spiritual sequel. Which, of course, leaves us with the question: "Does it live up to its forebear's example?"

In a word, it doesn't, but players looking for a substantial, generous tactical game to sink their teeth into should give this one a look all the same.

Review: Tropico 4
by Maurice Tan

Hola El Presidente! I see you have returned to rule Tropico once more, after having done so in Tropico 3 and maybe even after extending your rule in Tropico 3: Absolute Power. Because life as El Presidente is hard enough, you will be happy to know that the island nation will take more or less the exact same skills to govern as it did before.

Or perhaps the similarity will disappoint you.
