Anno 2070 Review

Battlefield 3 Review

Battlefield 3 stands out from the current crop of multiplayer FPS look-mommy-I’m-a-soldier-man by being not about you.  In most other games of this type, even games with class systems, a few good players can really unbalance a match and rocket one team to victory.  Your prowess and skill with your pretend sniper rifle, your speed in whipping out a digital…
