Company of Heroes 2 Review

When in doubt, park your zerglings—er, troops—behind concrete and let them watch you mortar the surrounding area into oblivion.‘Reveille’ for the multiplayer; ‘Taps’ for the solo campaign

To be honest, we really wanted to dislike Company of Heroes 2. As is tradition whenever we have a new strategy game, we immediately fired up the game’s skirmish mode and cracked open a delicious can of soda to accompany (what we assumed would be) a short march to victory.

SimCity Review

Suspended marketing campaign says it all

Just in case we get bogged down reviewing Electronic Arts’ poisoning of an otherwise excellent franchise instead of getting into the nitty-gritty of the game itself, allow us to present a Cheetah Speed review of SimCity up-front (assuming EA has turned that feature back on by the time you read this).
