Obsoletion alert: I rarely update these. Take them for the “historical documents” that they are. Some of the writing isn’t stellar either.
I’ve gotten rid of the Anarchy Online xerogram. It’s an MMORPG and, as such, it changes with every patch, making any sort of write-up about it a continuous affair, something I’m just not fanatical enough to do. Plus, I haven’t played it since late 2003. Update: I played it again for about two months in 2010. Same old, same old.
Like Everquest, I’m about a million expansions behind with Anarchy Online anyway. If I applied the same rule, I should nix the Earth and Beyond review. The game is now defunct, a victim of clueless Electronic Arts management. Wasn’t a bad little game.
For the time being I’ll leave it up there.
A lot of these games aren’t playable under Windows 2000 or XP (or even older NT) without help from emulators or memory managers. Or if they do work, they do so without sound. I’ve tried to note where this is the case. One thing a lot of folk do that works is keep an older box around, like a Pentium 200 or something, loaded with Windows98 and DOS. It’s cheap enough where that’s not really an issue for most gamers nowadays.
Of the reviewed games here, my favourite would be Realms of the Haunting, a sadly forgotten and unappreciated classic.
