REVIEWS NBA LIVE 15 Review
Yes, NBA Live was horrible last year. But this year's entry is a vast improvement. Just give it a try.

Dungeon of the Endless Review
A roguelike that’s equal parts charming and challenging with a turn-based twist.

What do these ratings mean?

Wow... how long have I been waiting for this game? Ever since it was announced, I wanted to play it. It took so long for it to come out that I lost hope for it. I was telling my friend it would come out at the same time as Diablo 3 and Duke Nukem would. Diablo 3 is now official and Duke Nukem is ... "somewhat" official.

Back to subject... I was reading around the net that it was easy to crack so I decided to try it for myself since my money is spent in booze, special spices and keeping the girlfriend satisfied with her expensive "needs". It would be my first real test of my new macbook pro... game-wise.

After an overnight download and simple instructions on what to change to get it, the game was working!

The game is pretty good... can't say great. I can definitly say it wasn't worth the time I waited for it but that's a whole other subject. The game looks pretty good, very cute I have to admit. I decided to make my race a bloodthirsty group designed to kill quick and escape. I was inspired by rogues in MMORPG's. The first level made me think of a flash game called fishy but more in depth of course. For instance, how you "create" your microbe(?) it will affect its defences, offence and even what/how it eats. Everything looked pretty and cute so it put a smile on my face with my electro music blasting in the background. The second level is when you finaly go on dry land. That's where I really started to have fun. I was pretty much killing and eating everything I saw. Once you pass that, the RTS feel of the game comes out. You get into tribal mode where you control your tribe and you have to, well in my case it was, kill the opposing tribes. The game went downhill from there... The RTS of that part was too simple but I thought to myself it would get better in the next level. Well it did get better but I can't say by a lot. Once you control the whole planet, you get into space mode. That's where I decided I was bored and went back to bed.

When I finaly woke up, I decided to give it another try. I saw that I do some really stuff in space mode... for about 15 minutes.

Overall the game is good but it could have lasted longuer but I had some trouble getting used to the controls. They felt jittery and I had some problems because of it. Also doesn't help if I dont use a mouse...

So yeah... Good game, could be better. I'm happy it's easy to crack because I would have been pissed if I would have bought it.
