IMG Reviews FIFA Soccer 12
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Inside Mac Games has posted a review of TransGaming's FIFA Soccer 12 for Mac. The Soccer sim features a new player impact physics engine, improved AI, tactical defending, and precision dribbling.

Here's an excerpt:

Little touches in the game help you overcome your opposition. If you control one player throughout the game your other AI teammates will help you take possession. A very nice fall back if you have no idea what you are doing. You can also call the ball over if you think you have an opening. This provides a range of control for more experienced and less experienced players. Other assists in the game include discrete yellow arrows on the controlled player showing where you should be on the field. People of little soccer experience will often find themselves chasing the ball rather then holding back in the correct position allocated for them. With these yellow arrows you can identify how far away you are from where you should be, while still having the freedom to do whatever you desire.

Nuclear Dawn Reviewed
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Examiner.com has posted a new review of Iceberg Interactive's Nuclear Dawn. The game combines first person shooter and real time strategy gameplay, allowing players to take the role of soldiers in a war-torn post-apocalyptic world.

From the review:

Combining the FPS and RTS genres isn't new, but it is something that rarely achieves commercial or technical success. More often than not, marrying an RTS and FPS together ends in a game that gets half of the formula half-right. Thankfully, Nuclear Dawn succeeds on both fronts quite well—and with continued support and development should have a radiant (or radiated) future ahead of it.
