Duke Nukem 3D

3D Realms Entertainment 1996
Genre: Action
Rating: 6/6
Licence: Shareware
System: PC

When Duke Nukem 3D was first released back in 1996, it took the video game industry by storm. At the time of its release, it was rare to find any game that had any sort of mature content, which in modern times is now commonplace, it followed the trails of the success of Doom, which saw Duke Nukem deviate away from its platforming roots to a much mature and darker first person shooter. The game takes place after the events of Duke Nukem II, where Duke returns from space and finds Earth overrun by aliens that are hell-bent on abducting all of Earth’s women and it’s up to Duke to save the day.


Dune

Cryo 1992
Genre: Strategy, Adventure
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Frank Herbert's Dune is one of the best known pieces of fictional literature - beaten only by the bible and a few others. Millions of people have read it and even those who didn't at least know the name because they've seen the movie, they've just heard of it somewhere or they've played one of the computer games.


Dune II: The Building of a Dynasty

Westwood / Virgin Interactive 1992
Genre: Strategy, Action
Rating: 4.5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Despite popular beliefs, there is nothing original about Dune II. Except of one thing, which enabled Westwood to become a powerhouse among games developers. As for gameplay, however, the game did not "revolutionarize", "create a new style of gaming" or "became the first of its kind." All it did was to combine several games already out in the market. The developer did this very skillfully, however, creating an unique experience and one of the most entertaining games ever.


Heretic

Raven Software / id Software 1994
Genre: Action
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Shareware
System: PC

Heretic is Raven Software's third attempt at the fantasy genre. Like the other two its engine borrows quite heavily from another game (in this case Doom), while offering a very unique and creative setting. It is also their final step away from developing the genre standard, namely role playing games, to more uncommon first person shooters.

Leisure Suit Larry Goes Looking For Love! (in several wrong places). Need I say more?

Oh, OK then. In this sequel to the 1987 hit by Al Lowe, Larry Laffer, our balding bachelor, goes once again on a quest for love. In doing so, he will unwillingly cross the path of KGB agents and the evil Dr. Nonookee, who is plotting unspeakable schemes of doom on his secret base, concealed in a volcano on a tropical Island. Yes, another Bond parody for you!

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.
