Alone in the Dark

Infogrames 1992
Genre: Adventure, Action
Rating: 4.5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

This game is loosely based on H.P. Lovecraft's works. So you can expect a decent horror atmosphere. And that's what the game is all about: the atmosphere! It is created mainly be the presentation. The graphics are an attempt to be as movie-like as possible. You're playing in third-person perspective. The perspective changes depending on the spot where your alter ego stands. You are of course always visible, but from different directions and angles! When walking around you sometimes have the feeling of real movie-cuts.

Champions of Krynn

Strategic Simulations, Inc. 1990
Genre: RPG
Rating: 5.5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Champions of Krynn... A game containing everything you'd expect from a classic RPG: magery, knights, thieves, dragons, epic battles, tragic love, heroic deeds, unexpected allies... I could go on forever. Well - not really forever, but you can imagine.

Death Knights of Krynn

Strategic Simulations, Inc. 1991
Genre: RPG
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC


Following up the rather well executed Champions of Krynn, the first gold box series game set in the Dragonlance setting, SSI brought us Death Knights of Krynn rather shortly after.

Icewind Dale

Black Isle Studios/ Interplay 2000
Genre: RPG
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Well met traveller! Come closer to the fire and warm your frozen bones a little before you continue the journey through those icy planes. While we are waiting for the clouds to clear up, let me tell you a story about a golden age… a golden age of role playing.

Master of Orion

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

Master of Orion - just a poor copy of Civilization or an independent game? The opinions differ extremely. There is hardly anyone who thinks it is mediocre. Either you hate it or you love it. As everbody can assume, I belong to the second group (else it would be in a different category). I'll explain why.

Master of Orion II: Battle at Antares

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

Master of Orion... one of the best balanced strategy games ever made. Also one of the first to successfully simulate diplomatic relations (albeit with a limited set moves). One of the very few games in the explore and expand genre in which the bureaucracy of each turn (i.e. taking care of the basics) stays manageable. How can Battle at Antares possibly improve on that? There are two levels to that answer. The first one is how they tried improving it. The second one is what works and what doesn't.

Pool of Radiance

SSI 1988
Genre: RPG
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Well, this is a classic. The first of the Gold Box games, and must say it shines. Not that it is perfect, but as a start it surely is great. Leaving you in charge of a team of adventures who must get rid of all the bad guys, it looks like a great way to adapt D&D into computer.

Ultima I: The First Age of Darkness

Origin 1986
Genre: RPG
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: C64, PC (DOS)

For me (and, I guess, not only for me), the Ultima games are the ultimate experience in RPGs. Featuring a great depht in gameplay, and a fantastic blend of story and unfolding things, Ultima games (and especially Ultima V and VII) are true master-pieces of computer gaming.

Ultima IV: Quest of the Avatar

Origin 1987
Genre: RPG
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

The three ages of darkness have finished, now a golden one starts and with it a new way of living through philosophy and virtue. A call is sent to summon a new kind of hero, one that does not triumph through the sword, one that can become a spiritual guide and help others to walk the path, an avatar of the virtues.
