Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit Publisher: Electronic Arts

Seacrest County needs to invest in some speed bumps. Given the number of times that I've wrecked sports cars costing over half a million dollars in pursuit of illegal street racers, I'm thinking that a couple hundred bucks of asphalt would be a far more effective solution to Seacrest County's illegal racing problem. Of course, it wouldn't be nearly as much fun as pursuing perps at over 200 miles per hour, or racing the competition and the law simultaneously on SC's tightest curves.

Doc Clock has a way of finding the most improbable, least practical solution to any given problem. Of course, the problem he solves is rarely the problem he was working on, and it's never quite clear why his faithful (if sarcastic) companion is a sentient machine combining the best features of a vacuum cleaner, monthly storage space, and robotic arm. To avoid a simple disaster, Doc Clock builds a time machine to travel to the recent past and avert the accident. Instead, he travels into the distant future where amusingly insane robots rule the roost and Doc Clock will have to use his ingenuity to escape.

The land of Albion is restless. Her monarch has raped the land, taxed the populace into poverty and pressed children into labor to fill the palace treasury. Brutal oppression and horrific executions have become the norm, and Albion's people are bubbling over with revolutionary sentiment. Only a "Hero" of royal blood has the talent, power and lineage to lead the people in revolution. But after ascending to the throne, will that hero have the courage to make the difficult decisions to save Albion from a threat even greater than its cruel nobility?

Ancient Mesopotamia was a land of contrasts, with the fertile lands around the Tigris and Euphrates rivers providing a rich bounty while nearby harsh terrain could be as deadly and barren as the Fertile Crescent was rich. Bronze has players taking on the role of different Mesopotamian civilizations in an effort to colonize the land, conquering or assimilating those who resist.
