A game review from The Gamer will be featured every month on diGIT online magazine.

Here's the review for the April issue (Y)


--- Quote ---If you are new to the Avatar franchise, here’s a quick heads up. In the not too distant future, life has been found in a distant planet. When researchers reach this planet (or moon rather) they find a world full of life which seems to somehow harmonize their existence with that of the planet. What they also find is a rare mineral called ‘unobtanium’ which costs US $ 20 million a pound. And so, human greed takes over and the mining starts, which outrages the main intelligent life form on Pandora, the Na’vi. The Avatar program is set up so that human scientist can study the planet up close, through the eyes of a Na’vi – Human hybrid, an Avatar which you can control by transferring your consciousness into it. The game contains a ‘Pandorapedia’ which contains a goldmine of information on Pandora, which I particularly enjoyed since it lightened most of the areas left in the dark by the movie.

Once on Pandora, your character, ‘Able’ Ryder (note that there’s no first name) is greeted by Officer Kendra Midori on arrival and she leads you through most of the initial stages of the game. Your character can be male or female but that doesn’t affect the gameplay much.


It’s time to choose

The first hour or so of the campaign is more of a tutorial of sorts. You get to try out a few vehicles and a few sample missions from the RDA (Resource Development Administration) side as well as enter your avatar and roam around Pandora for a while. Here you can get a feel for both of your characters so that your choice will be easier when it comes to decision time. Yes, at some point in the game you will have to choose which side you are going to fight for.

The Gamer HoN preview on diGIT May issue (Y)


--- Quote ---DotA being a mod, it carried its fair shares of obstacles and glitches. It also required the original game to be installed and didn’t allow for a player to be reconnected in case of a disconnection. Even though the game is still immensely popular, by now the eight year old Warcraft III engine was beginning to show its age and its limitations could be ignored no longer.



So let’s get to the basics. S2 Games have taken the whole idea of DotA and put it in a new standalone game with better graphics and a gameplay engine, so it’s technically not a brand new game, rather a remake of a classic. The game features a remake of the original DotA map, as well as ports of many favorite heroes from DotA, tweaked to fit into the Newerth Universe. However, the game does feature original content as well, including two brand new maps and new heroes. According to the developers, the new K2 engine used in the game has enough flexibility to accommodate new maps and new map types as well as a number of new heroes and abilities.

The Gamer FIFA11 Preview on diGIT September issue (Y)


--- Quote --- The FIFA World Cup ended as a disappointment for most of us. We all waited anxiously for the past four years for it to start and within a week after it was started I couldn’t wait until it was finished. The football quality that we see week in week out it the major European leagues was not there and there were so many controversies. What’s more, my favorite team got their butts kicked by the team that I hate the most. But most importantly to us gamers, usually with every world cup we can get our hands on the official FIFA World Cup game as well. But this time around we PC gamers didn’t get that opportunity either and that made the time period even more boring. The reason being that EA sports did not release a PC version of the FIFA World Cup game so the less fortunate people like us who cannot afford a PS3 or an Xbox360 (even iPhone users got a bite of the cherry) could do nothing but to watch YouTube videos about it.


New Home Screen for Manager Mode

On that note I thought of writing about EA’s new installment of their football game, FIFA 11. If you are a FIFA fan, you will be aware that EA tends to release the game with the start of the European football season.
