IMG Reviews Lugaru
8:09 AM | Tuncer Deniz | Comment on this story

IMG has posted a review of Lugaru, an impressive shareware fighting game by Wolfire Software. In the game you play Turner, a rebel bunny rabbit, who fights to avenge his family and restore balance between the rabbits and wolves.

Here's a clip from the review:

While the game's story serves more as a vehicle to deliver its spectacular fighting, it is at least worthy of a quick glance. You play as Turner, a fighting rabbit whose family is slaughtered very early on in the game. This massacre understandably upsets Turner, who then goes on a killing spree against the raider bunnies responsible for the misdeed and ends up uncovering vast conspiracy, corruption, and other plot standbys. The story ends up being mildly interesting, but it is extremely linear, and its implementation leaves a lot to be desired. There were definitely a few instances when I said to myself, "Why the heck would you do that, you stupid rabbit?!" Having any sort of ability to choose your fate would have been a welcome addition to the game. As it is, the game is completely linear, and the extent of the player's control over Turner starts and ends with combat.

10:38 AM | Marcus Albers | Comment on this story

Publisher Aspyr Media today listed the new expansion for Delta Force - Black Hawk Down, Team Sabre as reaching "Final Candidate" status. Team Sabre is due to ship next month. Marking a game as "Final Candidate" means that all beta issues have been cleared up and it has been submitted to the publisher for final approval. Once approved, the game will be sent off for duplication and distribution.

Team Sabre includes two new single player campaigns, a host of new weapons and transports, as well as the opportunity to play select missions as a British SAS soldier. Here's a sample of what to expect:

Assume the role of Delta Force, a US Ranger and, for the first time, play as a member of the British SAS. This expansion sends Delta Force on new missions with objectives such as, destroying an underground drug refinery, taking a mountain stronghold, infiltrating enemy oilfields, capturing a chemical weapons convoy, and more. Team Sabre also introduces new weapons, new vehicles, new terrains, 2 new single player campaigns, and 30 new multiplayer maps. Mod support for building unique multiplayer battlefields is also featured.
The expansion will require the original Delta Force - Black Hawk Down to run, and will retail for $19.99.

Head over to Aspyr's website for more information on the new expansion.
