REVIEWS Yorbie - Episode 1: Payback's A Review
You've heard of the phrase “phoned in"? Well, this game is so bad that it must have been “texted in.”

BOXBOY! Review
What does the box say? Nothing. And it's gloriously addictive.

I am a PS3 owner and someday hope to be a PS4 owner, yet I am not at all dissatisfied with my choice to delay purchase, solely based on the current PS4 library. When I transitioned from a Playstation 1 to a Playstation 2, I was pleasantly surprised that I could for the most part rid myself of my PS1...

What do these ratings mean?

Sim City 4...Sim...City...4. Well from looking at the name we can tell that this game is a sort of sim-game or simulator, the word City gives us the idea of a city simulator, and when we see it's a game from the good folks who give us hours of endless sim games, we can tell that for the next few hours of your life you will be in charge of cities.

Ever played a game, for an hour, half an hour, quarter of an hour. Came off the computer and said to yourself - I'll never get those minutes back now. Well let me tell you, if you love being the guy in charge, when you exit sim city 4 you will be hoping to get back on in the next 24 hours.

So anyway, let's get to the game. Love monopoly? Don't really like gathering people round to play though? Don't worry, with Sim City 4 you manage your own city and regions. However when I state that you are in charge I mean in charge of everything.

When you first load up a city you go into God-Mode, this is where you can alter terrains add trees and lakes and everything that is natural, but be sure to make the right changes now, because when you go into Mayor-Mode, if you then decide to go back into God-Mode, you will be limited what you can do.

In Mayor-Mode you can make zones, residential, work. You add in powerplants and police stations. You can have railway stations, build roads to connect zones. Basically if you've played any of the previous sims games like The Sims then you'll get the idea that possibilites are endless...along as the good people have programmed it into the game.

 

Good Points:                                                                                                  

You can build and destroy to your hearts content.

You can use the disaster features which lets you let loose a tornado. Which is controllable.

 

Bad Points:

This isn't a game you load up and get right into.

You may need to play the tutorials a couple of times before getting into the game.
