I've just found a nice turn-based strategy game, that might get the interest of either turn strategies fans or battleships fans.

I have played it before, but I do not think it was a good game, in all honesty. Too fiddly, long-winded. Then again, I do prefer faster games but thats just me.

I've played the WW2 version. I thought it was a nice twist on the original battleship game but as Deltaflyer said, can get somehwat slow and tedious, especially when chasing flagships round and round before you run out of time.

I'd say that too if it was freeware. But it's not.

Bah, never was going to play more then the demo. Still, Mount&Blade can be an example of a game that's not good in graphics, but has more gameplay then several next-gen games. [And, it won Game of Year 2008 award by players vote on gamecorner.pl]

I have to agree with the majority on this, now if you don't mind I shall take my leave. I have tumors in my cornea.

There is a difference between bad graphics and bad art. If you go back and look at successful games from the area where graphics were even more primitive than this, they still don't look as ugly as this does. Pong had better art than this.

I have to agree with Siber here... That's why Gamespot in their anual gaming awards typically have two seperate categories for excellence in graphics from a technical standpoint and excellence in graphics from an artistic standpoint... A person doing facial composites may have excellent technical drawing skills (perhaps not so much 'nour days, but in the past facail composities were sketched by hand) but his results aren't going to be works of "art"... Indeed, this is by design as the composite is only supposed to give the cops an idea of what the perp looks like...

Equally, it's entirely possible to make even primitive graphics look really good... One of my favourite examples would be the technically god-awful but artistically proficient graphics of the first three Spyro video games...

Then of course there are those (far less common) pieces which perfectly combine both the artistic and the technical... My favourite example would probably be this beautifal piece by DeviantARTist NocturnalMoTH...

An excellent explanation of the difference between the two trek, I can name quite a few games that had one but not the other. *cough* cuboid heads.

Hey, noob, read the damn rules and check the dates of posts before posting in a thread, for Christ's sake. This thread's been inactive for around three months.

Don't. Fucking. Necro.

EDIT: Looking back through your posting history does not impress me. If you keep making worthless one-line posts, I will start giving warnings, and you will be temp-banned.
