One Minute Review:

Worms : Open Warfare – a good time killer, but only in small to medium doses. Everything that made worms great is here, the crazy weapons, the voices of the worms, the random land masses, gorgeous backgrounds, the turn based warfare. The game does lose some of it's appeal after 30 – 45 minutes about the time of one complete game. There are some funny A.I. moments, when there is 2 or more computer controlled teams they will take out the human played before even attacking each other. This caused a lot of loses. The only thing that might be called a single player game is a series of challenges where you take on other teams in increasing difficulty. This game is a buy for fans of the worms series which should be everyone.

City Life Demo – 30 minute demo – Sim city with more of a focus on the interaction between the classes

Mortal Kombat: Deception – The second in the "new age" mortal kombats. The real looking character models have been replaced with a more animated look. The long time favorites are here: Sub-Zero, Scorpion, Ermac, Kabal. Each fighter has 2 fighting styles and a weapon style. This makes for some cool combos. There is a single player adventure that will take you through learning each fighters moves, there is dozens of unlockables, a puzzle fighter game, chess combat and almost all can be played online. This game should be pretty easy to find in a bargin bin and is worth a look. This game is a buy for the price.
