Pirate Storm

piratestorm1
The graphics aren’t amazing but they aren’t the worst around.
piratestorm2
Other players lurk around the map also, completing their own quests.
piratestorm3
The game world is made up of a number of areas.
piratestorm4
Combat doesn’t require much player interaction.
piratestorm5
Quests are mostly to do with killing other ships but at least you can team up with other players

Putting money into the game gives players an advantage over non-paying players.

Battleline: Steel Warfare

battleline1
Map plan and inventory are not bad at all, the design suits the game and fits in well.
battleline2
A lot of action going on for a tutorial, but you know, makes a bit of change!
battleline3
Oh, I died. Well, it takes longer than I thought for a tank to blown up, think I took around 10 hits. Harder to die than it is to live!
battleline4
Easy to find your way around your inventory, but darn, the guys voice is beginning to annoy me now!
battleline5
Good variety of maps! From boiling desert to freezing snow, I hope they have heating in that tank!
battleline6
Movement could be a bit more responsive, but then again, they are tanks.

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!

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!
