King's Ransom, Perhaps, But Fun 1

OverviewThe fact that this game is a remake of a nearly 20-year old game is, at least to me, a little disconcerting. Not least because remakes usually suck, but also because a lot has changed in the time between then and now - not just the obvious (graphics, etc), but more subtle things. The entire expectation of a gamer is different. Consider that when you buy a game today you have a feature-set expectation depending on the genre of the game; suffice to say, when you purchased a game in 1990 yo...

Potential VS Delivery 3

It's difficult to write a fully encompassing review for a game like X3: Terran Conflict, since it provides the player with a plethora of ways to explore, and interact with, the game world. Maybe you want to be a trade mogul, an "xtreme" pilot, or an opportunistic pirate; regardless of which avenue you decide to go down, it is generally helpful to the player if the game works - "out of the box", as they say.With X3:TC, as the player, you may find yourself torn between what does work, what does no...
