RAGE the PC Game by id Software
Featured Reviews: Games

At Benchmark reviews, we thought it might be interesting to offer a light hearted article on the new PC version FPS/RPG hybrid game RAGE, from id software, the creators of DOOM. I've played a lot of PC games since I started using computers. I'm not saying I'm a "gamer," because I'm not. But, I have a good feel for how games have matured since DOOM, which was my first PC game. I've been luke warm with the entire genre of FPSs, MMOGs, and RTSs for a long time, with few exceptions. RAGE is one of those exceptions. Aside from video driver troubles early on, RAGE has a lot to offer and seems like a game inside of a game, inside of a game. This isn't a review, but more of a personal musing on the game itself. So, take off your armor and come on in for some fun.

Duke Nukem Forever: The 3D Vision Experience
Featured Reviews: Games

After a 14 year gestation, Duke Nukem Forever has finally arrived. Those of us who played the original Duke Nukem games after weaning ourselves from Doom and Quake have finally had our patience rewarded, but adding a little frosting to the cake is the fact that Duke Nukem Forever was coded to take full advantage of NVIDIA's 3D Vision technology: it's a "3D Ready"-qualified game. Benchmark Reviews takes a look at this irreverent take on the FPS genre in 3D.

With their recent release of H.A.W.X. 2, Ubisoft provides a fresh face for the FPS, MMO and RTS dominated gaming climate. It comes to Benchmark Reviews eighteen months after the less-known H.A.W.X. game.

So grab your flying cap and join us as at 15000 meters as we take a plane or two (or three or twenty) for an inverted spin.

Starcraft 2 Video Game Preview for PC
Featured Reviews: Games

Many RTS gamers across the world, including the staff at Benchmark Reviews, consider Blizzard's Starcraft as one of the best RTS titles ever created. After almost 10 years, Blizzard's Battle.Net servers are still hosting thousands of dedicated players who still battle against each other and enjoy every second, despite the poor graphics and low resolution. Blizzard keeps updating and improving their servers, which is a great and rare thing for such an aging game, but it won't be long before Starcraft 2 arrives for PC.
