Game Review:

It might seem that new ideas are running short these days, with nothing but sequels and rehashes of old games being released. However, there are many games, which were very good, that are starting to be revived with new maps and levels being sold in the form of expansion packs. Some of the very first games with expansion packs were games like Command and Conquer and Warcraft II. Because these were the very first generation of expansion packs, the response was a bit mixed due to the lack and quality of the enhancements included in the packages. Despite this, gamers still flocked to see what was new because it was something different and new. As the next generation of expansion packs arrived, better and newer game additions were incorporated, one of the first of these was the Duke Nukem 3D: Plutonium Pack which added new monsters, storyline (if there was any to begin with), levels, and weapons, which then started the new craze of quality enhancements. Following that stage, there have been many new expansion packs to be released, one of the more recent being Half-Life: Opposing Force, which introduced almost an entirely new game to the player. The latest game hot off the press is the expansion pack to Total Annihilation: Kingdoms entitled The Iron Plague.
