4.0 out of 5 stars Good but so much room for improvement, 20 April 2009
At first I wasn't too happy with this game. I didn't have a problem with steam or installing the game. When I played it at first I thought it was very complicated if you didn't play the tutorials but when you play the game for a while you get used to it. The only problem I have now is the computer AI is a bit screwed up- I arrange my army in to a neat straight line, when I try to send them forward they end up diaganolly.

The game does have many good points, for example there is the option of naval battles, you can also save the game before enter a battle so if you mess it up you can start again. You can conquer Europe, America and now India. You can enter wars and ask your allies for help.

Overall Ilike the game and can recommend buying it but make sure your computer has high specifications or it might not work well, which will ruin your experience.

1.0 out of 5 stars A 100% dissapointment, 8 May 2007
This review is from: The Sims 2 (PS2) (Video Game)
This game was probably the biggest dissapointment ever. I got the game for christmas and having played the PC version at my friend's house I was very happy. I played the game for about an hour then I felt like doing something more interesting like ripping out my eyes.

The game has many faults, like the Sims (PS2) when you change a big curtain surrounds your sim then after an hour of sim time you've changed. When you eat it's not as easy as the PC version where you pick what you want, you have to pick the individual ingredients then you have to decide what to do with the ingredients, when you've finally made the food you have the option to look at it, drop it or eat it, that's about one step away from having the options chew and swallow. Another fault, did you ever have someone who you didn't like, but they kept coming round your house (in real life)? Every day on the Sims 2 is like that. Simple things like having a shower now take about 2 hours, how stinking can they get?

This game had great potential but turned out to be a huge dissapointment, that's why I reviewed it after selling my version.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best games I have ever played, 26 Sept. 2003
This review is from: Prisoner of War (PS2) (Video Game)
Wether you have played it one or one hundred times this game never gets boring. You play the part of captain Lewis Stone, an American pilot who is sent to fly over a German prison camp to spy when his plane is shot down and he is captured. you will have to complete multiple tasks before you can escape. You can talk to other prisoners to get tips on how to complete an objective, set up a distraction and buy items of a prisoner for some "currency." The graphics are great, the storyline was very well thought, the chararcters are funny and the game is really realistic, once you start playing you can't stop. You can throw stones at objects to distract guards or even steal a german uniform.

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent, 16 Jun. 2003
This game is excellent. The graphics are good, there are many levels. The game includes two player mode. You can use mind powers to electricute your enemies or create a defensive barrier which lasts about 1 minute. You fly over several planets like Geonosis. You even get to fight in the clone wars.

5.0 out of 5 stars Original and funny: overall an excellent game, 16 Jun. 2003
This review is from: Army Men : 3D (Video Game)
Excellent game, you can use several weapons like a rifle, machine gun, bazzoka, mortar, grenades and flamethrowers. you can also use several vechiles like tanks and jeeps. In this game you don't only fight the tans, there are also grays and blues. The manual is also helpful, it gives you stratedgies and it tells you how the blues and the grays attack. You also have a radar at the bottom of the screen so you can see the enemies which are close to you and if you hold down select a map of the whole level comes up showing where you are and the tan in the area near you and you sometimes have a tool called a reconaissance, which if you use it you will see the location of all the tan on the level for about ten seconds. The video at the end is also funny. The graphics of the game are okay, the game doesn't contain any blood or swearing.

5.0 out of 5 stars This game doesn't really get boring, 11 Jun. 2003
This is an excellent game which never really gets boring your a little green plastic dude against evil tan men. You sometimes have allies which can sometimes make it easier. The game is not too easy so it will not get boring fast. The game has six vehicles for you to use: Jeep, bomber, tank (with cannon turret and machine guns), chopper, assault raft and the giant battleship with giant cannons. My favourite mission is the last because you attack land, sea and air. The game offers many weapons to use like flamethrower, bayonet (like a knife on the end of the gun), rigle, machine gun, bazooka, grenades and mortar. One mission you go on tank patrol through a town. With all vechile you control the weapons only for example on the second mission your in a plane on a bombing run, tan planes try attacking you and you have to shoot them. This game is the first game I ever bought and when I was playing it I wanted more army men games. A brilliant game especially when you have time to kill because each level isn't too long.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best wrestling game for playstation 1, 11 Jun. 2003
This game is excellent. You get to make wreslters, stables (groups of people like APA), taunts and P.P.Vs where you can make eight matches. At the end of each P.P.V every match gets a rating depending on how good the match is. You can win belts like the world wrestling federation, intercontinental, european, tag team, women's, Hardcore and light-heavy weight. You have a selection of many different matches like hardcore(weapons), anywhere fall(backstage), special referee(A friend can pick a character and use him/her to be the referee), royal rumble(you have to hit all the other players out of the ring and be the last man standing), slobber knocker(ten minutes to destroy as many people as you can) and many more. You can go into season and play a career as your favourite superstar unlocking people on the way. You have four days of normal matches them a special day like Backlash, slobber knocker, survivor series 1, royal rumble, king of the ring and wrestlemania. You can unlock lots of wrestlers like Stone cold, Mick Foley, Michael Cole, Cactus Jack and Debra. You can make your own player, you can change his looks with a wide range of clothes and his moves including his finisher, entrance move and winning move(You can make your player come in on a motorbike, you can also choose his entrance music and signs which the crowd will hold up to support you.) You can go backstage in some matches and if you make your opponent run into an object like a locker a weapon will drop, and you can make them run into some walls which will reveal secrets rooms. If you liked Smackdown 1 or any wrestling game for playstation 1 you will like this game. Not only is the game fun but the graphics are good especially since it is a playstation 1 game.
