Inside Mac Games Reviews The Movies
2:10 PM | Tuncer Deniz | 1 comment

Inside Mac Games has posted a review of Feral's latest game, The Movies. Here's a clip from the review:

Originally released for the PC in late 2005, Lionhead Studio’s The Movies has garnered great acclaim from both tycoon game fans and machinima followers for its original design and its elaborate movie creation engine. Recently released for the Mac courtesy of Feral Interactive and their new programming developers, Robosoft Technologies, the game has proven to be just as fun, addictive, and time-consuming as this writer was afraid it was going to be.

WoW: The Burning Crusade Reviewed
8:06 AM | Anthony Wang | 2 comments

Atomic Gamer has posted a review of the best selling expansion pack, The Burning Crusade for World of WarCraft. TBC scored an impressive 94% out of 100%.

I really can’t say enough to show how much I have enjoyed my time so far in the Burning Crusade. Sure, it had it’s annoying points as almost any game does. However, Blizzard has really added a lot to the game – a ton of new quests, flying mounts, the ability to hit level 70, fun new zones and more. They’ve also managed to revise the WoW formula a bit and make the levels that would normally be tough grindfests in other MMOs an experience that is even more fun than the original game. Burning Crusade definitely sports a few coats of that classic Blizzard polish – hopefully, I don’t have to wait too long for the next expansion.
