ESP / Ubi Soft 1992
Genre: Action, Adventure, RPG
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga

The Bureau of Astral Troubleshooters, an intergalactiv secret police, had already made a name for themselves in the episodic, self-titled first game. Now it is time for the big job: The Koshan conglomerate has come into a monopoly position as the only supplier of a resource of galactic importance. Through foul play, of course. B.A.T. has already sent one agent to Koshan's base planet, but in spite of a seemingly perfect cover story, she seems to have been detected. So the player goes after her, to save her, but also to finish the mission.

Chris Crawford 1990
Genre: Strategy
Rating: 6/6
Licence: Freeware
System: PC

Balance of Power is almost a simulation of the cold war. As one of the two major superpowers (USA or USSR) you try to gain influence without starting a nuclear war.
The rest of the world is serving as a playground for the enemies. Other countries are not directly conquered but you try to get the respective government on your side or to overthrow it.


Black Dahlia

Take-Two Interactive / Interplay 1998
Genre: Adventure, Puzzle
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

[Herr M.] Interactive movies… you might say that if you have played one of them, you have played them all. From the humble beginnings with pixelated miniature slide shows up to the fullscreen full motion video titles, all of them have one thing in common: A shallow plot combined with bad acting, interspersed by obscure and out of nowhere puzzles. The game we are going to discuss today, Black Dahlia, tried its best to leave this reputation behind by turning things up to eleven, with really high production values and an even somewhat creative story.


Border Zone

Infocom 1987
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

[Wandrell] Infocom takes us back to the times of Cold War, in a classic tale of spies the two blocks collide, and only you can stop an evil plot before time runs out.

[Herr M.] That is, the authors throw you in the role of three of the said spies, who find themselves in a small imaginary country near the west-east border, where a high ranking ambassador is going to be assassinated.


Civilization V

2K Games 2010
Genre: Strategy
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

One of the most successful classics goes into its fifth incarnation. Sid Meier’s Civilization has not been matched yet… although there has only been one serious contender so far a couple of years ago – Call to Power. Will this unrivalled game in its fifth incarnation still be able to surprise us above new graphics?

MegaTech 1992
Genre: Adventure, RPG
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Private eye + Playboy = Private dick? Indeed, in this game you can be an excellent detective as well as incorrigible womanizer. At last your title is justified! But shhh... you don't know about it just yet. What you do know is that Cobra City has been shaken by series of alarming events. People are dissappearing, streets gangs are running loose, police are disbanded and it's time that you investigate what's causing disturbance. Together with your charming female partner you will disentangle one case after another until eventually you pick up the trail of a mysterious criminal overlord known as Kaiser.


Codename: Iceman

Sierra 1989
Genre: Adventure, Simulation
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Codename: Iceman is a Sierra game published in 1989. It’s, unlike the Police Quest and Space Quest series for example, a standalone game, following the story of Naval Officer Johnny Westland. Something you could notice about the game is the fact it has got an upgrade if you look at the animations. Just like several other titles that have been published around the same time, Sierra games took a boost in their animations and overall visual aspect of the games.


Covert Action

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

Putting this game into a genre is impossible! It's a mixture of everythin you can think of. But it's this point that makes the game so special!
You are Max (or Maxine) Remington, agent at the CIA. Your boss calls you to his office to give you a mission. He introduces you to the basic problem and the available information. Then you're on your own! Well, not really. There are CIA-analysts who support you. They collect all the data and filter out the important stuff.


Crime Time

CrimeTime00.png
Byteriders / Starbyte 1990
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Commercial
System: C64
It's vacation time, so after checking into your hotel, you get drunk. What else? Intoxicated, you stumble into the wrong room and pass out. Not just from the booze, though. The next morning, you wake up next to a dead body, punctured by bullets several times, with blood all over. If there's one thing you remember of last night, however, it is committing no murder! With a huge storm raging outside, it will be some time until the police arrive; time you should use to identify the real culprit.

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.
