Romancing the Seven Wonders: Great Pyramids is a hidden object adventure game based on a mystery about the Curse of Nefertiti, in which a woman goes to search of her missing archeologist sister, Brianna. While the sweeping vistas of the Giza Plateau and the Great Pyramids are always part of the game, the graphics are rather dry and grain, and dark in some places. This made finding hidden objects very hard, if not nearly impossible without the little hint lotus icon to highlight them for you. You would have to go around in circles to find one item that you needed for one part of the quest that was in a very different area from the place you found the item to help you. There are little side games and logic puzzles along the way that are timed, and with the bad graphics make it hard to complete some of the puzzles in the alloted time to do them. At least they came with a “Skip” option, which made them a bit easier to take.

Asami's Sushi Shop at Big Fish Games

Value:★★★★★ 
Fun Factor:★★★★★ 
Overall:★★★★☆ 

Asami’s Sushi Shop is a very fun casual game that features not only Match 3 puzzle play, but creative interaction as you learn how to make virtual sushi. Asami is taking over the family business of her grandfather’s chain of sushi shops, and you can enjoy the customers reactions to her quick prowess and added services to them. You add power upgrades to your stores and inventory with every new store you open that improve the atmosphere of the shop and keep the customers happy. Go from a little country store out in the rice paddies to the high tech fun of the big city, but keep that tasty fish and rice combo the world has come to love coming in so many ways, because every customer has different tastes, and you never know what to expect from them.

The State Of Online Gaming

This entry was posted in Online Games by Cleave on

I have been playing a lot of online games for both fun, excitement and for reviews and there is one constant in every single one of them. That one constant is that there are a ton of people that just don’t care about anything or anyone then themselves. You know who I am talking about, the NOOB haters. Actually they think everyone is a noob. If you make a mistake your a noob. If you beat them in a battle, you used a noob trick. If you have a question your a noob. They hate noobs, so they hate everyone. If you try to get any kind of information they flame you and cut you down. If you do anything a way other then they think it should be done you are automatically a noob and not worth their time. Your not worth your own space in the universe and sometimes they even say you should just go die because you are such a noob. They think they are so elite that they are gods and they are probably ages 14 to 16 in my opinion.

Review: Guild Wars Factions

Guild Wars Factions
Gameplay:★★★★★ 
Graphics:★★★★★ 
Sound:★★★★☆ 
Value:★★★★½ 
Fun Factor:★★★★¾ 
Overall:★★★★¾ 

Guild Wars Factions is the 2nd installment on and the sequel to the award wining MMO Guild Wars Prophecies. This game takes place at the same time as when characters reach the burnt and ruined city of Ascalon after the Charr invasion. This extension of the game gives a whole new depth and feeling to the game that it never had before. You might even say it was the best Guild Wars titles of the 3 main storylines that involve the minions of Abaddon, the god of Secrets.

Review: Deepica

Deepica from Big Fish Games

Fun Factor:★★★★★ 
Overall:★★★★½ 

Deepica is one of many casual games that can be found at places like Big Fish Games, Gamehouse, PlayFirst and other casual game sites.  Deepica is a very addictive puzzle game in which you need to match corals of the same color to itself to finish the many different puzzles you encounter throughout the game. These puzzles change with every new level, and some little surprises are added along the way, like diamonds that clear nearly the whole screen for you. There are also color-changing bubbles, fireballs, and all kinds of twists that keep the puzzles changing as you play them. It is one of the most fun Match 3-type games I have enjoyed in a very long time. Highly recommended, very fast-paced.
