REVIEWS Stronghold Crusader 2 Review
From out of nowhere, Firefly Studios has released a title that is so, so close to being considered an RTS classic.

SPACECOM Review
This strategic space fighter won’t wow you with its looks, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t fun to be had. Especially if you bring friends along.

What do these ratings mean?

If you haven't played a SOCOM game before then don't even bother reading this review because all you need to hear is the same thing you've heard with every SOCOM game, the online play is fantastic while the the offline missions are both pointless and retarded. While the basis of the game is the same as always there are a few touch-ups to it that set it apart from its predecessors. One of the new features you'll find in this game is that you can finally drive some vehicles! Even though the mechanics of the vehicles aren't at their full potential they are still driveable. And vehicles wouldn't be available unless of course without the addition of some new maps. Did I say addition, i meant dominance. Don't even plan on playing your favorite maps of the last two installments because they are nowhere to be found this time around. Instead they are replaced with new gigantic super maps. I mean these things are massive which is good if you plan on playing with the newly available 32 players instead of 16, otherwise you'll be spending the entire round looking for someone to shoot. In attempt to add realism (which is my best guess) your teammates names don't appear over their heads until you are about 2 feet away from you, so either pay really close attention or you're gonna be looking at a lot of friendly kills. Normally this would be something that everyone would be worrying about but it only becomes a problem if you verify your name. Yes, that's right I said verify your name so all of you unfortunate people who don't have access to a credit card (including myself) will have to play online without being able to record stats and be ranked according to those stats. This also goes for joing clans and even making a friends list, apparently if you don't have a credit card then you don't deserve to be online. I mean you can still play online but there's really no point. So for all of those unfortunate folks out there that I mentioned earlier (including myself) i recommend that you bust out the good old SOCOM 2 and stick with that. So, for a general overview if you liked the old SOCOM games then you'll like this one but only if you have an online adapter and now sadly, a credit card.
