By Shawn Snider () - 7.8 out of 10

A variety of games based around World War II have been released as of late, most notably Cornered Rat Software's World War II Online. However, Panzer Elite captures something that these games cannot, a true tank simulation realistic down to the smallest detail. Read More.

Disciples II: Dark Prophecy Review (PC)

By Shawn Snider () - 8.6 out of 10

Disciples II: Dark Prophecy is a strategy title, although in a way it can be seen as an RPG as many attributes are shared between them. Although I have been a heavy gamer for many years, I have never been overly fond of the RPG style of games. They rarely derive any interest from me, usually I find them somewhat boring and unentertaining. Read More.

Tennis Masters Series Review (PC)

By Shawn Snider () - 7.6 out of 10

Hockey, football, basketball, and baseball are the most popular sporting games, and Electronic Arts has always dominated these divisions when it comes to the PC.
