Pirates: Tides of fortune

tidesoffortune1
The graphics are your kinda standard browser game/ Facebook game graphics

The ‘Pirate accents’ and ‘Pirate music’ in the game are Irish…. who knew all Pirates were Irish!

Real-time is required for building or researching

There’s a very large research tree to get through

You can raid other ships or attack islands controlled by other players.

For the achievement hounds there’s plenty to unlock!

The Settlers online

1
You’ll be seeing this screen a lot.
2
The visual and audible details are stunning for a browser title.
3
It’s refreshing to be shown an entire quest line, not just the current quest.
4
Building animations are yet another impressive feat for a browser game.
5
Unfortunately if you plan to invest time into The Settlers, you’ll probably invest in these.
6
I always love achievements in my games!

Nords: Heroes of the North

1
You know you’ve gotten a great job when the last guy was eaten.
2
You can choose between nords, elves and orcs as races with gender variation for each. This particular Orc female got her Warhammer as a Sweet 16th present, or so she announced at least.
3
The game map looks great.
4
The stronghold looks pretty good and it’s going to fill up with buildings soon!
5
There are different units to build to use in fights.
6
Players don’t interact with combat but at least you get to watch!

One piece

1
Ok, so what is going on right now? No instructions what so ever…
2
This shouldn’t be called One Piece online, it should be called ‘click random buttons, auto-move around the place, then click more random buttons!’
3
‘The new age is coming’ Yes so you keep telling me! I hope it is an age where there isn’t a darn pop-up that follows me around and won’t leave me alone!
4
Constantly auto-path finding! I’m not an idiot, just tell me where to go and I’ll darn find it!
5
Graphics take ages to load in, half the screen is blury and half is nicely illustrated.
6
Ok so… it fights for me? What the hell is the point of this ridiculous game?

Rail Nation

1
The instructions do take a while but are very useful, unlike some other games ‘how to play’s.
2
Graphics surprisingly unpixelated, but the structures do look a bit flat.
3
Everything runs very smoothly for an online game, but oh god, please no, I keep having to wait for some track to be built!?
4
Ok, this is just boring now. If I have to play this any longer I swear I’m bringing out the shotgun.
5
I’m sure all the characters on this look like dodgy old men…
6
Wow, I have a long way to go. But then again I don’t, I’m never playing this game again!
