Strategy 20 May 2009

The fourth major installment in the popular series of economy simulators that began in 1998. It was developed by Related Designs, a subsidiary of Ubisoft. As the title says, the action takes place in the Middle Ages during the Age of Discovery, and the players assume the role of colonists who managed to reach the eastern coast of Asia. The gameplay mechanics do not deviate from the well-known standards of the series. Starting out with a modest colony established on a remote island, we have to develop it and transform subsequent cities into metropolises brimming with life. Anno 1404 offers a sophisticated economy model that involves creating complex production chains as well as effective trade and diplomacy. Among this myriad of lesser novelties, especially noteworthy one is the sandbox mode that allows us to play freely without any plot limitations.

A spin-off of the popular Might & Magic series by Capybara Games, originally released for Nintendo DS, and later also for PC and the eight generation consoles.

It allows you to use various strategies and your troops' special abilities in battle.

Tom Clancy's EndWar, a game signed by the famous writer's name, is an RTS by Ubisoft Shanghai. The plot of Tom Clancy’s EndWar is set in the year 2020 and tells the story of a fictitional conflict between the USA, the EU, and Russia, which sprang from the competition for resources and dominance in space, as well as an attempt to topple the balance of power which had been established between the East and the West. During the game, players take control of one of the sides of this conflict, and the gameplay is conducted on two levels: the first one is the tactical map, depicting the changing situation as in the table top game called "Risk". The other layer is the classical commanding of units in battles, which are held both in open areas and in cities. The players control a number of units divided between infantry, armor, helicopters, and artillery. The campaign is complimented by a complex multiplayer mode.

Strategy 08 July 2008

Sid Meier's Civilization Revolution was created specifically for consoles, though the game belongs to one of the most popular strategy game franchises aimed at PC players. The series made its debut in early 1990s, as initiated by a company known as MicroProse; the Civilization series have been developed by Sid Meier's Firaxis Games nowadays. Similar to the previous installments, Revolution is a turn-based strategy game requiring the player to develop a civilization they have chosen - the process lasts for entire in-game millennia. Each of the sixteen playable nations was assigned to a famous leader, such as Napoleon or Cleopatra. The player not only has to explore and expand their civilization, but also ensure its constant development (cities, technologies, creating trade routes, establishing diplomatic relations, controlling both internal policy and military actions). One is capable of achieving victory here in several different ways, such as military conquest, going beyond earth, economic or cultural domination for instance. Apart from a single player experience, the game offers an opportunity to compete against other players. The version for home consoles comes with colorful, three-dimensional visuals.
