Carrier

Game Description: Carrier takes survival horror to the high seas, as you play one of two government agents sent to investigate an aircraft carrier that has ceased communication with the mainland. You soon come to the horrific realization that the entire ship has become the host for a deadly organism, which has turned the ship’s crew into flesh-eating zombies. See if you’ve got what it takes to clean out the ship and put an end to this strange organism’s reign of terror.

Carrier – Review

On the surface, Carrier appears to be nothing more then a pure rip-off of Capcom's groundbreaking Resident Evil series. Resident Evil defined many elements in what is now known as the survival-horror genre and Carrier isn't shy about mimicking it. Almost all the setups are near identical. In Carrier, players take control of Jack Ingles and Jessifer Manning (only after beating the game), a guy-girl duo part a special investigative unit known as SPARC.

Zombie Revenge – Review

No game echoes this sentiment clearer than Sega's Zombie Revenge, a shoot-'em-up, beat-'em-up arcade brawler with zombies and gore to spare. Though the game does have its moments, there's nothing here that hasn't been tried before. Zombie Revenge just changes the scenery a bit, adding a Resident Evil-esque theme to a pretty basic formula.

Vandal Hearts II: Heavenly Gate – Review

The current state of the industry still has game developers and publishers more concerned with testing gamers reflexes with action-oriented fare than they are with offering more cerebral experiences. Games like Final Fantasy VII helped change some of those perceptions by bringing the console RPG into the mainstream. Unfortunately, I cant say the same about Vandal Hearts II doing the same for more strategy-oriented games.

Vandal Hearts II: Heavenly Gate – Second Opinion

Vandal Hearts II is slapped with a mature rating and its not hard to see why after being exposed to a few minutes of the story. Vandal Hearts II's tale is focused on the lives of a group of characters and deals with all the harsh realities of war. All the commonly associated war horrors, in the form of executions, torture, rape, and pillaging, is all openly conveyed (though not vividly depicted) throughout the games story sequences (that take place in-between battles).

Unreal Tournament

Game Description: In this follow-up to the bestselling Unreal, you and your team of Bots are fighting in a tournament to attain the crown of Unreal Grand Master. The teams you'll be playing against consist of the most ruthless scum the galaxy has to offer. You'll have to be cool under fire and keep your team working effectively if you hope to beat each of Unreal Tournament's 32 levels and come out the champion (or alive, for that matter). Unreal Tournament's got it all: a ton of amazing levels, exciting new weapons, brain-melting new modes of play (Capture the Flag, Assault Match, Domination Match, Last Man Standing, and—of course—Deathmatch!), unbelievably deadly Bots (computer controlled opponents or teammates), and a slew of other features that should have your happiness glands working overtime.

Unreal Tournament – Second Opinion

Yet, by far, the one thing that makes Unreal Tournament such a worthy contender for the online multiplayer crown is the sheer amount of options that it offers over Q3A. There are more degrees of difficulty in Bot configurations, more different styles of play beyond CTF and classic Deathmatching, more maps to choose from, and even more diverse weapons (each sports an alternate fire option, which adds an entirely new dimension to the game). Almost across the board, Unreal Tournament brings more to the table than Q3A.
