Review: Eufloria 121

eldavojohn writes "Eufloria is a strategy game made by independent game company Dyson. I bought it on the Steam service this weekend for $20 and was impressed that it is a visually and aurally pleasing game. It's a real-time strategy game, but isn't a rehashed Civilization or Age of Empires — it employs a different kind of mechanic to conquer. Like a lot of games that rely on novel game mechanics (Braid & Spore come to mind), part of the game's experience relies on you learning as you progress through the 25 or so levels. They will definitely push you to utilize different strategies and tactics, so don't read this review if you're already planning to play this game, as it'll most likely be filled with spoilers about developing a strategy. I give the game an average 6 out of 10 and would like to say that with titles like Braid and Eufloria out there, 'independent' no longer equates to 'sucks.'" Read on for the rest of his thoughts.

Comment Re:but the drivers? (Score 1) 286

I got my Hollywood+ almost 3 years ago, and it's worked flawlessly ever since. It's worked well enough for me to not feel a need to replace it with a standalone DVD player. I've never seen a blue screen in either win98 or XP. As for the software, it's not the best interface, but I've never had it act flakey. Perhaps their drivers/software are sensitve to certain configurations.
