By Jason Murphy () - 9.3 out of 10

The newest addition to Microsoft's wildly popular flight sim follows the same formula that made the Flight Simulator series successful in the past, while adding new features that will make casual and hardcore fans want to pay the purchase price.

Manchester United Soccer 2005 Review (PC)

By Jason Murphy () - 4.7 out of 10

Outside of North America, soccer, better known as football, is the sport to watch. With highly competitive teams located worldwide, it results in some very intense games. As it turns out, Codemasters has capitalized on this phenomenon by releasing not one, but an entire series of soccer games based on many popular European teams. Read More.

Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne Review (PC)

By Jason Murphy () - 9.2 out of 10

As with all of its high-profile games, Blizzard Entertainment will inevitably release an expansion pack, therefore it came as no surprise when they initially announced Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne. Being the expansion to last year's impressive release in this ever-growing series, Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos, this game has a lot to live up to. Read More.

Time of Defiance Review (PC)

By Jason Murphy () - 7.6 out of 10

Nespanona has finally exploded, fortunately the Cog were prepared and had already developed and placed anti-gravity devices under the planet's crust to keep the pieces afloat after this foreseen tragedy. It is your responsibility to expand your empire and defeat other rival empires. Read More.

Rocko's Quest Review (PC)

By Jason Murphy () - 4.1 out of 10

Once upon a time, in a mystical land, far, far away...well not this time. The story behind Rocko's Quest is pretty basic, with nothing interesting to offer. The hero (if there must be a hero) of this somewhat ridiculous adventure game is Rocko, a rather dense character, having only his strength going for him. Read More.

By Jason Murphy () - 7.1 out of 10

An airplane passes unnoticed overhead as a figure falls silently through the sky to the ground at a high-security, remote location. The agent removes his parachute and advances carefully and silently towards the armed guards, using stealth and a number of high-tech weapons to his advantage to complete his mission unnoticed.

You're a new chef who has just inherited an old, closed down restaurant on the condition that you make it a profitable business. Will you specialize in French, Italian or American cuisine?

Purge Review (PC)

By Jason Murphy () - 3.6 out of 10

Is it a first-person shooter or role-playing game, or perhaps a bit of both? Purge is another one of the many recent multi-genre games developed that attempt to take the best elements from two completely different gaming genres and blend them together to produce something both innovative and entertaining.

Beam Breakers Review (PC)

By Jason Murphy () - 5.6 out of 10

Imagine the future, driving in a world where vehicles fly through the air with six degrees of freedom, the ability to move up and down through three-dimensional space. Now, imagine dealing with several "layers" of traffic above and below your vehicle with the constant threat of the police chasing you down, and you'll finally begin to realize at this is not a traditional racing simulation. Read More.

Tennis Masters Series 2003 Review (PC)

By Jason Murphy () - 7.5 out of 10

Tennis isn't one of those mainstream sports that come to mind when thinking of games, at least that's true in this part of the world. Tennis is generally not one of the multitude of mainstream sports games that are constantly developed and released into the gaming world each year. Read More.
