R.A.F.

Meisters 1986
Genre: Strategy
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Freeware
System: C64

Tired of all these modern 'anti-terror' - games? Hunting evil guys of whom you have no idea what kind of evil they've done gets boring? You're fed up with working for an anonymous 'government' with more than questionable ideals? Then choose the other side: become a terrorist!


Raid on Bungeling Bay

Will Wright / Broderbund 1984
Genre: Action
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: C64

It may seem unbelievable in these days, now that every computer game seems to be about war, spurting blood and severed limbs, but in the 80s, it was pretty much agreed on in the gaming press (here in Germany at least) that 'realistic' war themes are morally questionable and detract from the enjoyment of a game. So, the more otherworldly the story and the freakier the setting of a game about some sort of fighting, the better the ratings.


Railroad Tycoon

Microprose 1990
Genre: Strategy
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Nowadays everybody relates Sid Meier to Civilization, but there was a time when one of his most characteristic games was not about raising yet another culture, but about building your own railroad empire.


Railroad Tycoon Deluxe

Microprose 1993
Genre: Strategy
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

In 1993, Microprose decided to re-release some of their earlier hits as so-called Deluxe editions. Railroad Tycoon, not an old game by any standards at that point, was one to receive such a treatment. As expected, it is almost exclusively a graphical upgrade, and not even a particularly attractive one; although the screen resolution is increased, apart from a couple of digitized photos at special events, the main art is not actually qualitatively improved. The other main change is the inclusion of three new scenarios: North America (in its entirety), South Africa and South America. The latter two being particularly hard scenarios. They come at the expense of the England scenario which does not appear anymore.


Rampage

Bally Midway / Activision 1986
Genre: Action
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Atari ST

This is gonna be a short one, as there's not much to describe in terms of storyline and plot. Straightforward coin-op/arcade stuff here, which is a genre I usually won't rave about. Rampage has that little something that makes certain games so addictive, though.


Rampart

Electronics Arts 1992
Genre: Action
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

As an adaptation from an arcade, Rampart is a simple game, a simple, fun and hard game in which you will build the castle walls inside which will be placed the cannons to fight back an invading float.


Raptor: Call of the Shadows

Apogee 1994
Genre: Action
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Shareware
System: PC

You know the saying, “seen one, seen all”. Well, in this case if you have played any airplane shooter, like those that used to be on the arcade halls, you have already played this one. And more than probably in an improved shape.


Realms of Arkania: Blade of Destiny

bladem_000.png
Attic / Sir-Tech 1992
Genre: RPG
Rating: -
Licence: Commercial
System: PC
English version of Das Schwarze Auge: Die Schicksalsklinge.

Realms of the Haunting

Gremlin Interactive 1997
Genre: Adventure, Action
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Ok, you have a dream of your dead father asking for help, then a weird guy gives you some obviously (yet broken) magical amulets, and when the morning ends everything makes you think you must pay a visit to the obviously haunted mansion. I smell genius behind this story.


Rebelstar Raiders

Julian Gollop / Red Shift 1984
Genre: Strategy
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: ZX Spectrum

Not many games can claim the honour of having started something really big and immensely popular for themselves. Rebelstar Raiders is one of the notable exceptions. It spawned a whole modern genre and has to be recognized as the seminal work for countless others. Games like UFO (X-Com) and Jagged Alliance wouldn't exist without RR. Talking about UFO, RR was even made by the same person, so it's even a direct descendant.
