The year after its original release, the standalone expansion IL-2 Forgotten Battles got put on the market and offered more of the same. Now the series […]

Secret Weapons over Normandy

Lately we’re being overwhelmed with WW2 shooters. Think of CoD, RtCW: ET (although this has been released quite a while already), BF1942: SW, … All these great games focus on the great team feeling one gets from playing together and accomplishing missions together but once too many one of the most powerful means of both […]

Starfighter was one of the better titles for the Playstation 2 when it was released and was defenitely one of the only games to come out of the Star Wars license that was worth anything. With Episode 2 now in the cinema, LucasArts couldn’t do better than to release a sequel based on the new […]
