Face Off!

Activision 1989
Genre: Sport
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

'Face off!' is a great hockey game for its time but suffers quite a bit compared to EA's NHL series. Nevertheless is has a lot of things you can expect from a good hockey game. Exhibition and league games, several coaching options and nice extras like fights and a goalie cam.


Fair

Hanon Ondricek 2016
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Interpreter

Hanon Ondricek has shown himself to be one of the best text adventure authors of recent years (we have full coverage of Transparent). So expectation are high for this one.

Fair follows last year's (The Baker of Shireton) approach: the player is thrown into an "open world" which can be, explored, used and abused to his liking. This is a special approach to storytelling insofar that it even enables the player to stay away from the classic role of protagonist and just let things unfold around him. There is a number of things going on and which strand of plot he follows is entirely up to the player. I.e. it's much more of an indirect way of storytelling compared to classic player-centric narratives.


Fairlight: A Prelude

The Edge 1985
Genre: Adventure, Action
Rating: 6/6
Licence: Commercial
System: ZX Spectrum

Dark forces came upon once happy and prosperous Land of Fairlight! You, a brave and daring adventurer named Isvar have been summoned into the castle, which was once controlled by benevolent King Avars, but is now empty of its former household and filled with foul entities. Turns out the king has been long banished (and probably dead). But the rumors have it there's still one member of the royal family left in the castle, Segar the Sorcerer, whose days are countless, for his knowledge and skills have granted him immortal life, but he is now imprisoned deep within the compound. Your task is to find and set him free, for only he can bring the light and felicity back to the land and restore its former order.


Falcon 3.0

00.png
Spectrum Holobyte 1991
Genre: Simulation
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Thick 250-page manual. CHECK. Flight stick, throttle and rudder controls. CHECK. Ray Ban aviator classic sunglasses mixed with a hot-shot pilot attitude. CHECK.

Joystick jocks. You know who you are. If you played Falcon 3.0 in the early 1990s you might be just now looking in the mirror and noticing the fine-white hairs sneaking out of the side of your head. Yes, you are that old and so is Falcon 3.0. But perhaps some of those silver hairs are well-earned from the hundreds of hours of flight time you have logged in your virtual cockpit.

Fallout 2

fallout2_00.png
Black Isle Studios / Interplay 1998
Genre: RPG
Rating: 6/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

On its surface Fallout 2 looks like nothing special: Seems like yet another one of those typical RPGs from around the millennium. Which means isometric view, small characters running around, giving each other a bad time with their weapons, a health bar somewhere… hmm… but not in a cheesy ‘epic’ fantasy world? No, actually this takes place in the exact opposite: A violent apocalyptic setting. That's already setting it somewhat apart from the rest. But its real strength only becomes apparent by taking a closer look: The one thing in which Fallout 2 really excels is its high degree of freedom, hence its potential to create your very own story with your very own character that comes bundled with this. In so doing the role playing isn't simply restricted to choosing what kind of damage you want to deal, but for once you can fulfil almost any tasks in your very own way. Thus Fallout 2 is one of the few games which comes as close as it gets to a decent implementation of pen&paper role playing on a computer, as best as it’s possible without some fellow human players. The brilliant game world, created with great love for detail, ensures the icing on the cake.


Fantasy Empires

SSI 1994
Genre: Strategy, Action
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

A strategy game set in the D&D universe. A sequel of Stronghold? No - Fantasy Empires follows the futuristic footsteps of Cyber Empires. On the surface, not a lot has changed in the gameplay: Competing armies are strategically shuffled around a world map... until they meet, which is when the games zooms into a real-time battle screen on which the player can even control one soldier himself.


Fantasy General

SSI 1996
Genre: Strategy
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Bad guy conquers the world, the player is humanity's last hope to stop him. Seen approximately one hundred million billion times - and the stories of 90% in a fantasy setting. Not that anyone will care about the story in this Panzer General sequel.
