Thanks for your review Luca.

I have taken some screenshots of these games a while ago.

Thanks Mike for those screenshots.

I know a lot of people have been putting down these games because of their graphics; but I have got to say that I think they look really nice and polished. Yes, believe it or not, I think the graphics are very good for the type of games that they are. And personally, I love Planet Zed and Convex type games.

However, I've got to stress the importance of getting some AmigaAnyware games out there that are more visually stunning. Some impressive 3D games (as well as some fast and beautiful platform games) need to be released soon, or else people are going to be locked into their perception that "Amiga" always means simple games, with simple graphics. This is not to say that simple games (as are found in the party packs) are less fun or less addictive. But the public needs to learn that "Amiga" is not stuck in a gaming timewarp from the early 90's.

Even if Amiga would only offer a couple of games with jaw-dropping graphics, and even if the game-play was terrible, and even if it required a super-spec PDA to run them, it would be an important statement to anyone walking through CompUSA who might happen to glance their way, that AmigaAnywhere can keep pace with the times.

Hopefully some visually impressive titles are on their way. But they better come soon before the public stops even looking at the name "Amiga."
