Uplink: Hacker Elite

PC GAME REVIEW posted on 9 JUL 2003 by Scott Parrino

"...a game about invading computer systems without the consent of their owners to wreak all kinds of havoc, from deleting and copying files to altering people's very lives. Besides moral implications, there are legal ones as well. Luckily, this is just a game, and should be treated as nothing more than that."

Tropico

PC GAME PREVIEW posted on 1 JAN 2001 by Scott Parrino

In simple terms, Tropico is a nearly perfect blend of all the great elements of every city and empire building simulation I've played. Fans of Caesar, Pharaoh, Zeus, Sim City, Railroad Tycoon, The Sims, and many others, will feel immediately at home. Although, as with most of the games above, the player is cast in the role of supreme ruler, one does not have direct control over the population. Instead, your wishes are restricted to construction and land development decisions, salary and hiring decisions, and the general setting of policies and execution of edicts (arresting troublemakers or political opponents, assassinations, declaring political orientation and policies, enacting martial law, allowing the Pope to visit, and so forth).

PC GAME REVIEW posted on 7 JAN 2000 by Scott Parrino

I would like to start this review with a simple statement: I personally did not like this game. I have several reasons for not liking this game, and you can read about those reasons below. Based on my playing of the game, I simply cannot find any reason to recommend that someone should buy it. If, however, this review doesn’t convince you that buying Kingpin: Life of Crime would be a waste of money, I'd recommend strongly that you download the demo first.
