Shogun Total War Warlord Edition
Gameplay:★★★★½ 
Graphics:★★★½☆ 
Sound:★★★★☆ 
Value:★★★★★ 
Fun Factor:★★★★☆ 
Overall:★★★★¼ 

Shogun Total War Warlord Edition is one hell of a game. Even though it is 10 years old it is still a classic and worth playing. As old as it is it will even play on Windows 7 with very few problems at all. So if you have a need or wish to conquer Japan then this is the game for you.

With Shogun Total War 2 coming out in March 2011 you might want to pick this gem up while you are waiting for it to come out. Now I will warn you, this game is not that crisp in the graphics department that you have grown accustom to but it still looks better then some of the free MMO games that have been coming out lately. The only place where you even see the graphics not being what you might be used to is when you are controlling your battles as there is not anti aliasing on the units but you wont even mind that at all.

Review: Romancing the Seven Wonders: Great Pyramids

Romancing the Seven Wonders: Great Pyramids at Big Fish Games

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.
