a FPS man!
For the hardcore FPS fan its giong to be either Unreal Tournament
or Quake 3. Outsiders to consider would be Daikatana, a game
which people have forgotten about, but if released, could upset
the big two. People know Quake and it will sell well no matter
what, but I think Unreal Tournament is just a better overall
game. It has far better gameplay and a greater range of gameplay
modes. This game's single player bot matchs are so well done,
you may not ever need to go on-line to have fun with this game.
So, if you're a FPS hardcore fanatic it's Unreal Tournament
but if you have a bit of extra cash to boot get Quake 3 as well.
Na, Strategy's my game.
eh? Then it's between Theme Park World, Age of Empires 2 and
Pharaoh. All strategy fans will remember theme park as I think
it was the game that set it all off. The second version of the
Theme Park world goes all 3D on us and you can now test the
rides that you build by taking a ride on them yourself. Age
of Empires is a different type of strategy. You must build up
civilizations and protect and attack against others. Set back
in the past you progress though the different ages and fight
other armies in epic battles. The third contender on your list
is Pharaoh. What? Never herd of it? You may not have but it
is the sequel to the Caesar games. The gameplay and style is
much the same as the Caesar games but it is set in the Egyptian
era. Your task is to build up little villages into huge city's
incorporating housing, statues and entertainment facilities
making sure everyone in your city has access to them. I've laid
the carpet but which bit do you want? My tip for the strategy
game you should be putting on your list this Christmas is Theme
