Command & Conquer

game_000.png
Westwood Studios 1995
Genre: Strategy, Action
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Command and freakin' Conquer. I would consider this game to be the DOOM of real-time strategy games. C&C may not have been the first game of its type, but it was certainly the first to make the impact that it did. A contemporary setting, full-motion cutscenes, fast-paced gameplay, and gorgeous digital audio all came together to create an experience that not only launched the RTS genre into the mainstream, but found itself clogging up college networks everywhere.


Lands of Lore: Guardians of Destiny

Westwood Studios 1997
Genre: RPG, Action
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

As an heir you often stand before one of those big questions: How do you want to honour your predecessor's legacy? Are you going to stay true to your roots, or do you wish to go your own ways? As far as computer games are concerned the first one seems to be more profitable. For as much as people tend to complain about constant rehashes, the fact that there are endless series of suspiciously familiar titles, which only stall when the first real innovations start to show up, proves this strategy right. You certainly can count the number of games which successfully maintain the balance between the old (to count as a sequel) and the new (to be a game of its own) on one hand. One of the few that mastered this tightrope walk is Lands of Lore: Guardians of Destiny. And the best part of it is that there are signs of a very similar conflict in the story of the game itself.


Legend of Kyrandia

Westwood Studios 1992
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 3.5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

The evil jester Malcolm has escaped from his prison. Now he's draining all the magical energy of the realm. None of the court magicians can withstand his powers. As a sign of extreme evil, he has turned Kallak (one of the elders or something) into stone.


Legend of Kyrandia 2 – Hand Of Fate

Westwood Studios 1993
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 4.3/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Kyrandia is in trouble again! But this time it's not that easy to determine where it comes from. The realm is slowly disappearing bit by bit. The royal Mystics don't have a clue what to do (that rhymes ;). But fortunately, a giant hand has obviously experienced this phenomenon before: someone needs to retrieve the anchor stone from the center of the world. On the hand's diagram of the world, you can clearly see a lot of lava there, but who cares? The youngest member of the mystics is chosen for this mission: Zanthia.


Legend of Kyrandia 3 - Malcolm's Revenge

Westwood Studios 1994
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

The third installment of Westwood's popular Adventure series picks up where the first part ended: Brandon has defeated the evil court jester Malcolm and turned him into stone. Brandon became king and everything was well (well, apart from the fact, that the former king and queen are... dead). A lightning frees Malcolm from his prison, and now it's time to 'hear his side of the story', as the intro states.
