WET: The Sexy Empire

WET00.png
Interactive Strip 1998
Genre: Strategy
Rating: 2/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

To lead a life like Hugh Hefner someday… doesn’t this cross most men’s minds? Well, in this game from 1997 we get the chance to give it a virtual try. Too bad, that you will have to start at the veeery bottom. Namely as a bank robber, who is hunted by the FBI and whom his chums have cheated of his share of the loot. So we hide in some dump in the desert, where we meet lovely Lula, who is willing to help us, if we can turn her into a heroine of the porn industry (which girl with a bust size of 50+ does not dream of this kind of things?!?).


Wetten Dass..?

PCSL Software 1991
Genre: Puzzle, Action
Rating: 1/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga

Warning: Even though I normally try to treat both language versions of the site equally, there are situations in which this is impossible. This review is such an example. This English review will be a boring read to everyone who isn't familiar with German television, because it mostly consist of references to the popular TV show which the game is based on. You'll still learn something about the game, but I won't promise it'll amuse you much.

Genre: Puzzle
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Where in the USA is Carmen Sandiego? is the second installment in the series. This time, as the name suggests, you’ll be chasing Carmen’s band around the USA, hopefully learning different facts about the country’s culture and geography.


Where in Time is Carmen Sandiego?

Broderbund 1990
Genre: Puzzle
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

In the long saga of Carmen Sandiego this famous criminal has fled all around the universe. She has been stealing through USA, Europe, the world in general and even space. But this time she is stealing through time, and only you, and your knowledge of history, can stop her from commiting the biggest robs in all time.


Wiggles

SEK 2001
Genre: Strategy
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Developed by SEK and published in September 2001 by Innonics, Wiggles (released to the English-speaking world as Diggles) was highly praised by the leading publications like PC Games, PC Action and GameStar and it received very good ratings. The game failed on the market, though, because for 2001, it was too demanding hardware-wise. Even today, it can still put quite a load on dual core Pentium chips. The developer SEK tried their hand at another real time strategy game called Paraworld in 2006 and then went bancrupt.


Wild Cup Soccer

Teque / Millenium 1994
Genre: Sport, Action
Rating: 2/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga

To us Europeans, American Football is just a big slaughter anyway. So when we play Brutal Sports Football, we don't even notice much of a difference to what's offered in the NFL. Who cares if a few weapons have been added? Don't those suits make living weapons out of the players anyway (dramatic pause...)?


Wild Streets

Titus 1989
Genre: Action
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga

What a mediocre game! Walking from left to right and beating up evil guys. There's also some kind of 'story' behind it, but I have to confess I don't know it exactly. When playing it again for the review, I couldn't find the intro, no matter how hard I tried!


Wild West – The Incredible Adventures of Donald Reddish

ww_001.png
Proline 1993
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 1/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC
Donald Reddish wants to leave his parents' farm and go west. It is, he heard, where all the adventure is. Arriving in Laredo, just at the Mexican border, he sees the perfect opportunity: the position of local sheriff is open. Ignoring the warnings that all the previous ones are now ten feet under, thanks to a certain Leslie Marbosh, Donald applies for the job.

Wing Commander Academy

wca_001.png
Origin 1993
Genre: Simulation, Action
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

I thoroughly enjoyed Wing Commander I and II (WC, WCII), with all of their add-on mission packs. Flying an armed ship around in space blowing up enemy Kilrathi "furball" ships (not that politically correct…) and hearing the digitized voice of them screaming was an absolute rush! WCII followed the tremendous popularity of Wing Commander, and Origin released add-ons for WCII in 1991 and 1992. However, I think Origin wanted to milk WCII and re-used the engine and made Wing Commander Academy.


Wing Nuts: Battle in the Sky

wingnuts_000.png
Rocket Science Games / Stargate Entertainment 1997
Genre: Action
Rating: 2/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

The most popular theme for WWI video games has to be the good old dogfight, the aerial combat of the very first hour conducted by such famous aces like Manfred von Richthofen (aka the Red Baron). There is a certain kind of romanticism about those noble knights of the skies, their chivalry and heroic deeds, which lends itself quite well to games with simplistic morals and a somewhat watered down depiction of the great war. No mustard gas, no machine guns, no drowning in the trenches, just you, your plane and maybe a couple of opponents. Your ‘battles’ are really straightforward and often there is not that much at stake. Sometimes mission briefings tend to hype your flights up a notch or two, although in real life aviation was not the ends of all means like it is often depicted in those video games. The game we are going to discuss right now might either be considered a prime example of this belittlement or as the perfect deconstruction of its glorification. It all depends on how serious you are going to take it.
