Pirates: Tides of fortune

tidesoffortune1
The graphics are your kinda standard browser game/ Facebook game graphics
tidesoffortune2
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
tidesoffortune4
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.

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!

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!
Star Trek 3

Star Trek: Alien Domain

Star Trek 1
Graphics in this game seem very cartoony most of the time, however the ships are recreated from the movies, which does add a little authenticity to the experience!
Star Trek 2
Planetary travelling is quite slow considering the speed of interstellar ships, but overall the game is more than decent when it comes to staying true to the stories from the movie.
Star Trek 3
The backgrounds for your base aren’t high quality, however the base on its own does look pretty decent, which is great!
Star Trek 4
Building upgrades are necessary, although they can be a little costly and that’s where the pay to win element is coming in.
Star Trek 5
Each building also has specific information and this does come in handy if you want to understand how it works and what it provides for you!
Star Trek 6
When you enter a sector and want to kill an enemy, you should use stealth, otherwise you might end up dying. Focus on the markers all the time if you want to find new missions!
