Now that World in Conflict is out in stores (have yet to see one in Datablitz), Gamespot, known for their "tough" rating of PC games (see Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter 2, Bioshock, and others) have finally rated World in Conflict with a stunning
We can read their review here: World in Conflict is a thrilling, spectacular strategy game, and an even better multiplayer experience.
(Now if some good soul would send over a copy for me to review or a couple even to share the love of this exciting Game for Windows game!)
Since World in Conflict has gone gold, some ‘big’ game review groups have started receiving their copies of World in Conflict and have played and reviewed it.
And to much enthusiasm, it certainly lived up to its expectations in this year’s E3 where it won several awards from the gaming sites as well (like from IGN, Gamespot and others). IGN was one of the groups that have already rated the game with a whopping 9.3/10.

I called the local game store (Datablitz) of the availability of the game. I still have yet to get confirmation that it will be released here. And I’m hoping to get a collectors’ edition too.
In this issue, I’ll be listing down the various Games for Windows Demo games that I have been playing all this time (Downloads courtesy of Gamespot’s Download Manager*)
Bioshock: One of the "must" have games this year. An action adventure set in the 1960’s where a utopian city was built below the surface of the Atlantic, which has turned for the worse, all because of a substance called "Adam" which caused civil disorder and chaos. Through the use of a substance called "plasmids", man can further his or herself into becoming powerful beings… but at a price. (and I’m not a *ahem* horror game fan though, but look at the beautiful graphics!
World in Conflict: I’ve been very vocal about having this game soon. Remember the old Charlie Sheen movie Red Dawn? This game has been inspired by that movie, where Soviet forces in the late 1980’s decided to wage open war on the rest of the world instead of the other way around. This is quite a different RTS than that of the norm.
Lost Planet Extreme Condition: Lost Planet is one of those games that are made for consoles but have been well translated to the PC as well, the game takes place in a snow covered planet where in order to survive is to take in T-ENG that keeps the body warm and prevent freezing from taking place. What’s also nice to see is that the game does not only focus on run and gun action, but also tactics and the use of large armors called Vital Suits to fight now large enemies (but fighting large enemies can still be done on foot…. ).
