Hi all! I asked this question on the old forum and was getting some great replies, so thought I'd pick it up here.

What other games do you like to play? And do you play them on PC, PS or????

Recent games i've played on the PC are Alien Vs Predator 2, Return To Castle Wolfenstein, and my current favourite, Medal Of Honor Allied Assault.

I used to be a big player of Unreal Tournament, but i'm giving that a rest for the time being.

Just recently i bought my son a Gamecube so i've been playing Star Wars Rogue Leader and 007 Agent Under Fire.....both great games :)

Since I already posted my list in the other forum, I'll just get straight to the point, what's the JB game like? The gameplay looks like it has the feel of the Elite Force games, but is it just a shoot-em-up, or is there a little more to it like TR?

I'll say one thing for them, the Bond face they've created is extraordinary, you can see all the Bond's so far in his face. _probably the intention, but brilliant none-the-less.

I love old games but now I'm only playing custom TR levels!

Games that I recomend:
- Ultima 9 (this game is really great);
- Ultima 8 (incredible hard game);
- C&C Renegade (don't like too much);
- Driver (I love this game);
- Stunts (yeahhh!!!);
- Super Bubsy (very funny);
- GTA2 (no need comments);
- Worms World Party (good to play with your friends);
- Half-Life/Opposing Force/Blue-Shift (superb games);
- Alone in the Dark 1/2/3 (one of my favorites);
- Diablo2 (it's cool);
- The Incredible Machine (this is a mind burn game).

That's it!!!

Mine are all PS/PS2 games. I like the Legacy of Kain series, Vagrant Story, Devil May Cry, and any other games of that general style (except for "wait your turn" RPGs--UGH!).

Mine are also all ps/ps2 games. My favorite series would have to be the LOK series just for the story line alone. I also have Broken Helix and Spider-Man mainly because of the fact that Bruce Campel does some voices in them. He is pretty funny so I don't think I'll be getting rid of them any time soon. :cool:

:o I also have played all the Star Wars and Star Trek PC games. Had you tried the latest from Microsoft - Dungeon Siege? I think it's fantastic. Maybe its elements can be incorporated into the next Tomb Raider game. What do you think? :o

30th Jun 2002, 21:47
isn't DS an rpg? how can you put that in TR...plz explain what elements you want in TR...

Jorge22
30th Jun 2002, 23:01
Well, I wouldn't like it a lot to see many RPG elements added to TR. Hopefully its creators will be wise enough to know they shouldn't insist too much on it. I always find them mainly boring, RPG games you know...
Anyway, other games I love: Alice, Max Payne... Return to Castle Wolfenstein is cool. Deus Ex is good too in spite of all the blah-blah-blah there is sometimes.
I've also played Black & White (I'm in the middle of it and saving it for some time later), Dino Crisis (got tired of being unable to fight the dinos for lack of ammo, but it's cool and creepy), Alone in the Dark, amongst others.

With summer here, I'm not gaming much at all. You could say I'm playing "COTW," but it's kind of on hold until some spare time shows up.

"Alice," is on my "to play" list. I got it when it first came out, but I couldn't get it to run under Windows. I got it to run finally, a few months ago, with the Wine-X Windows emulator for Linux (of all things!). I've also got the Linux version of Quake-3, but both were too slow to play on the old computer so I upgraded my hardware. Now that I've got it up and running, I don't have the time to play! You just can't win sometimes.

Oh, and of course, "The Sims." I'm playing both the Linux and Windows versions. It's one of the games I'll play forever, whenever the mood strikes to play God.

I expect AOD will be out when the time situation improves. I just hope it will run under Windows 98 or Wine-X, because I've had it with Microsoft and their EULA.

Alice isa game, designed by American McGee, whose main character is Alice herself, as in Alice in Wonderland. Only this time Wonderland is upside downand our girl will have to goand save it from utter destruction. Mainly, it is a 3rd person shooter with very imaginative weapons (toys, they are called) and amazing sceneries. Despite being a little linear, it'll get you hooked easily.

3rd Jul 2002, 12:14
Not very much:
Diablo2: Lord of Destruction
Jedi Outcast (still learning)
TR - Fan made levels (I wonder why so many TR fans haven't even heard of them, some even beat the quality of Core's levels!)

I'd also like to try other Eidos & Core's games, since the only ones beside TR's I've tried are "Fighting Force", "Commandos 1 & 2" and I didn't like them too much (I don't like games which are 'druing a war' anyway)

I hadn't heard of this before. What's is like? Sounds like it's based on "Freedom's Landing," but that's one of the few I haven't read.

Tekken 2(I love tekken, my sister and I play it all the time. Can't wait for tekken 4!)

Is that the Titanic game that is kinda like a murder mystery during the first part and then goes to real-time escape mode? I almost bought that once when I found a cross-platform version...but :( didn't.

How does it rate against the other games on your list (& TR, of course)?

For those of you who play the Sims, in case you haven't heard there is going to be a new Expansion pack to be released in September.

In it, you'll be able to have pets, become a supermodel, grow a garden, and much, much more!

Check out the info at:

Adventure out of Time: The game starts off in WW2, you're sent back in time by a catalyst, to April 14, 1912. You work for the British Government, sort of like a spy. (it seems you had been on the Titanic once before, but had botched your mission). You must work against time, collecting clues (and evidence) to find your mission critical items. IF you succeed in finding the items, and get off the ship, you re-write history.

It's a great game, and I highly recommend it! :)

Currently, there's Neverwinter Nights and the Game Boy TRs (working on walkthroughs finally).

Perennial faves:
Baldur's Gate series, including Icewind Dale and Planescape Torment. Eagerly awaiting Icewind Dale 2.
SSX Tricky (still trying to get the final gold medal in Alaska to get Zoe from Sensei to Master)
The Sims in all its incarnations
Sim City 3000 (waiting on 4)
Star Wars Pit Droids (silly, yeah, but a great puzzle game)

I've got to get Alice. Everyone says how awesome it is.

i have a ps2, and my absolute favourite game is shadow of destiny. i also like silent hill and the final fantasy series... although i hate final fantasy X, the characters irritate me and the story's boring, so thats one loyalty i might ditch. i like some strategy games too like the sims and age of empires, but they can drive me a bit nuts.

hmm.. i have no idea what shemu is. might check it out if they're similar! :D

SoD is a very unique game, and the storyline is very involved with lots of curious plot twists and side details. some of the things that are hinted at in the game are quite perverse and cynical. its about a man who tries to go back in time to prevent his own death (an interesting concept for a start) so a large portion of your time is spent dying and trying to learn from it. its got extremely good mood and music, the best character development ive ever seen (albeit in a limited number of characters) and is extremely unique. having said that, its also very short and starts out slow. you have to persevere because the first two chapters are a veritable waste of time. theres also no combat, and its more cinematic that anything else so you don't need any skill to control the main character. however, it has lots of different endings and possibilities and has very good replay value. i've played it probably about 50 times and i still haven't unlocked all the available details. :)
