Tropical Island Games Part II

26 September 2019 - 08:44 AM

Five years ago I posted a list of games to take with you on an island...that was tropical...and you had to choose what games to take with you on said island. Haven't read the first one? Than Click here. Times change and although I still stand by my original list I've decided to expand upon it. In the next couple of months I plan on releasing part 2! Most of these games are strategy related, although there seems to be a misconception of what is a "strategy game as opposed to a "tactics" game. More on that later.....Regardless, I hope anyone reading this is a fan of video games and enjoy.

C&C Classics, perchance reborn?

EA and Petrogylph have decided to remaster the original Command & Conquer and Command & Conquer: Red Alert series. With the "promise" of no added DLC.... What's your thoughts? Can one if not the best RTS games of all time be made again in 2019? I hope so.

Jagged Alliance Rage

02 May 2019 - 05:58 AM

After all the years of new developers and publishers we finally get a successor to Jagged Alliance 2!
Finally we get back to the roots of one of the best turn-based game franchises ever made!
Wait a second....Where's my laptop? Where's A.I.M.? Custom Characters? Oh fuck here we go again....

Jagged Alliance Rage, a game with a new developer, a new publisher, A New Hope....?

Nope, we get a half-assed  attempt at "maybe this time...." kind of unproductive nostalgia.

Summary

Moronic A.I., Voice acting is shit, RPG elements completely stripped. Bugs aplenty, despite the patch (which I doubt there'll be many).
The "maps" aren't very engaging or large. The music, is "meh" and the graphics are a nice touch.

Unless this game series is purchased and rebooted by a competent developer/publisher, buy at your own risk.
I find it strange that a company would purchase the rights to a game series only to produce such a piece of shit product.

3.5 out of 10.
