1006th played so far Genre: Simulation Platform: Nintendo DS Year of Release: 2005 Developer: Nintendo EAD Publisher: Nintendo I’ve skipped really dealing with these sorts of ‘pet simulations’, with Eyepet being the other main item on the list (that isn’t a life simulation where you’re influencing humans). Where Eyepet was just as impressive because of […]

975th played so far Genre: Racing Platform: PC Year of Release: 2005 Developer: SimBin Studios Publisher: 10tacle Studios/Atari After fairly recently playing GTR 2, we now get to play the previous SimBin game – same system, different races, and so a lot of realistically timed races in their specific setting. It’s the last game in […]

963rd played so far Genre: Action/Strategy Platform: Gamecube Year of Release: 2005 Developer: Kuju Entertainment Publisher: Nintendo For some reason I thought Battalion Wars was a prequel to Advance Wars: the big game version of it before it was adapted for the handheld. I was wrong – not only did this come later, it changed […]

941st played so far Genre: First-Person Shooter Platform: PC Year of Release: 2005 Developer: Irrational Games Publisher: Vivendi Universal Games In this day and age, it’s already quite uncomfortable to play as a member of the American police, doing SWAT operations, taking down criminals with a lot of violence and all that. I played the […]

937th played so far Genre: Racing Platform: Xbox 360 Year of Release: 2005 Developer: Bizarre Creations Publisher: Microsoft Game Studios It feels like Microsoft has had the lead in racing games for the past fifteen years, if not more.

918th played so far Genre: Simulation Platform: PC Year of Release: 2005 Developer: Ubisoft Bucharest Publisher: Ubisoft One of the weirder games we had for our old, 2 5.25″ floppy drive only PCs was called GATO. It was a real time submarine simulator that took me years to figure out – helped by having to […]

852nd played so far Genre: Simulation Platform: PC Year of Release: 2005 Developer: Egosoft Publisher: Deep Silver/Enlight While the Elite games define a genre, others take after them too. X3: Reunion is one of them. The third part of the story – the fourth being released less than two years ago – it seems to […]

Tags: , , , ,

846th played so far Genre: Strategy Platform: Game Boy Advance Year of Release: 2005 Developer: Codo Technologies Publisher: Namco It seems like Rebelstar: Tactical Command is a clear example of a sequel in name only. While both the original Rebelstar and this game are tactical games, there isn’t a clear link in storyline or special […]
