Ever wanted to own your own airline? Ever wondered what it would be like to control the industry, charging people for everything short of the very air they breathe on the plane? Now is your chance! Koei’s seminal simulation franchise lets players manage their own airline company, and while its sequel was much better, the first installment got things off to a great start.
Koei’s long-running strategy series made a singular appearance on the 32X in Japan, and it was never released outside of that country. Currently it’s considered one of the rarest games in that library, but is it worth playing? Very much so, despite a daunting language barrier.
Historical strategy titles aren’t normally high on gamers’ “to do” lists, and that’s a shame. There are some brilliant games out there, and Koei’s seminal series is probably the most famous of them all. Released on just about every console ever made, its Genesis entries come highly recommended.
It must be really cool to be a pirate. Sailing wherever you want, plundering and looting at a whim, and all the wenches and rum you can handle! For some reason, video games have never gotten that last part right, but they make up for with an engaging storyline and customizable ships! New Horizons: Uncharted Waters 2 is the sequel to the popular pirate RPG that lets players continue the adventure of expanding their wealth and fame as one of the buccaneers of the Caribbean. What it lacks in wenches, it makes up for in great combat and fun!
Koei has always been known for deep strategy games, and the company supported the Genesis in a big way. One of it’s most popular titles is also one of the easiest for newcomers of the genre to get into. Gemfire is a great way to spend some time watching wizards get fried by dragons, and who doesn’t love that?
