REVIEWS Etrian Odyssey 2 Untold: The Faf Review
I dunno what a "Fifnir" knight is, but damn is he scary-lookin'. And his game... it's pretty damn good too.

FEATURED VOXPOP oblivion437 Update: I was unfortunately not aware of Shamus Young's severe criticism of Fallout 3 available here to link in the original piece and I regret that.  It dovetails rather nicely with what I've written and it's much better executed than my piece.  I strongly recommend anyone...

What started as a simple game of chess (or was it tic-tac-toe?) has evolved into some of the most complex computer programs on the planet. Lucky for us, some of them happen to be really fun, too.

GAME OF THE YEAR!

Rome: Total War

Publisher: Activision
Developer: Creative Assembly
Platform: PC

Though the competition is fierce, this particular road leads straight to Rome: Total War. Capable of rendering thousands of soldiers on the battlefield, Rome's brilliant engine brought the epic scope of historic conflicts right into your PC. Then it went a step further by incorporating deep dynasty elements like city construction and extensive diplomacy. Bold, impressive, innovative, and huge, Rome: Total War handily conquers the genre.

Publisher: THQ
Developer: Relic
Platform: PC

Furious battles filled with all sorts of gruesome details only scratch the surface of this well-balanced strategy beast, which also happens to feature some of the coolest unit design we've ever witnessed.
