Haiku Gamer review Tue, 07 Apr 2009

Five second reviews. Written, folded and photographed by hand for your pleasure. My haikvu's bring you bite sized hand sculpted game reviews. They combine the Japanese art of origami with haiku poetry.

My favourite map is the Nightfire map. It's set in an area of houses, and I think it's the most fun to play. There's a sniper area on either side, with one being hard to defend but with a good view of most of the battlefield. The other sniping area only has one entrance, but only a narrow line of sight. Because there are two, and both have weaknesses, sniping doesn't become crazily overpowered like in other maps. There's also a bunch of different routes through the level, so all the different game types are pretty fun.

Family Gamer review Tue, 11 Sep 2007

The first time you play Sim City should be a moment you remember for the rest of your life. The fascination that grows as your realise the connection you have to those poor souls living down in your metropolis, is a unique and compelling game experience. Hyperbole maybe, but this is a game that really did cut its own path, and create a whole new genre along the way.

My first encounter with the Sim City phenomenon, back on the Amiga, was probably aided by the fact that I hadn't heard of the game before. News had reached the various magazines that a strange educational tool was now selling like hot cakes on our good old 16-bit systems. After the reviews backed up the collective hunch that this was a special little game, I forked out the 19.99 and gave it a punt. I spent the next four or five weeks engrossed in the finer points of city economics, town planning, social experimentation and traffic control. Whilst it didn't directly help my geography G.C.S.E, it was certainly a lot of fun and felt more productive than blowing aliens away or playing virtual football with tiny little men.
