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?

I've been playing NFS for over 10 years, and I think this is the best edition yet...the cockpit cam is great, and the physics are amazing. This is my first NFS on a next-gen system, and I'm blown away by the realism. Some of the crashes are a bit too unrealistic, but that's part of the fun - as far as the controls, they really feel real. Overall, I'd say this is the perfect mix I look for between arcade-style fun and simulation-style realism.

Also nice to see a good soundtrack, I was thrilled that they used Rootbeer's "Under Control" – that's definitely an awesome under-the-radar jam.
