Crookz puts a '70s heist movie spin on tactical gaming

A tactical game with a '70s heist movie theme? Finding something like that at gamescom is about as unlikely as finding a videogame trailer with porn star Ron Jeremy in it. But here we are with both.

GDC trailer for vampire stealth game Dark has a dull bite

Talk about getting on the vampire hype train too late. I forgot Dark even existed, but it's coming out this summer. I think this trailer has enough oomph to keep the game in my mind for at least the duration of this post (hop...

Review: Tropico 4: Modern Times photo
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.
