WW2'er -> (6/20/2002 4:02:12 AM)

David,

Your first link didn't work for me and the third link apparently requires membership to access.:confused:




David Heath -> (6/20/2002 4:17:06 AM)

I fixed the first link and yes you need membership access for CombatSim which is a great site and well worth the money.

David




Pappy -> (6/20/2002 10:10:00 PM)

David,

Speaking of reviews, might it be a good idea to ask UV players for their personal comments/reviews about the game? Could be useful in print advertising and/or perhaps start a new section on the Matrix website just for player reviews.




Marc von Martial -> (6/20/2002 10:22:25 PM)

You´re all free to review the game in the shop and on the Matrix main website. Use our interactive features, they´re here for some reason ;)




IChristie -> (6/21/2002 12:56:54 PM)

I'm beginning to think that the scores applied for graphics and sound are inversely proporitional to the age of the reviewer...:D

Great reviews. The Combat Sim one rocks.




Shaun Wallace -> MGO Would Like To (6/23/2002 8:56:59 PM)

Hia Guys,

MGO would like to congratulate the guys who worked on UV for the great reviews its had.

A good review from the 2 hour review brigade at Gamespot is stunning.

Well done guys !

Shaun Wallace




VictorH -> Happy Gamers Thread (7/18/2002 7:08:19 AM)

What about setting up a permanent thread that justs lists positive reviews by gamers?




XPav -> (7/18/2002 8:53:34 AM)

The "love me" thread?

:D




Oleg Mastruko -> Rave reviews in exotic languages... (7/19/2002 4:56:47 AM)

http://www.bug.hr/ - this is the website of the magazine I'm working for, mainstream computer magazine, circulation 35.000, largest computer magazine in Croatia, being sold in neighboring countries too (in all of ex-Yugoslavia). For the next few days link to UV review is going to be on the top of this page.

http://www.bug.hr/master/rec/ - this is sub-site of my magazine's site, devoted specifically to games. Some (just SOME) of the game reviews from the paper magazine get posted on the web in their shortened versions. (We don't want to compromise the sales of our paper magazine :o)

Finally:

http://www.bug.hr/master/rec/valor/ - this is direct link to UV review that I (as magazine's "wargaming editor") wrote. Mind you, this is just a shortened version of the full-size review from the "paper" magazine. It was NOT written specifically for the web (even the pictures are taken from our DTP guys, after being prepared for the print so they look a bit blueish to me).

All this won't probably mean much to anyone here, due to the fact that the review is written in Croatian, but at least the final mark should be understandable to all.

Oleg




VictorH -> Croatia (7/19/2002 8:32:57 AM)

Are there a lot of wargamers in Croatia? How about some of the other Balkan Country's?




Raverdave -> (7/19/2002 9:23:26 AM)

All that I could really understand was the 96% I take it that that was what it was rated out of 100?????

I love the part that say "93%" :D. Too bad I can´t understand the rest.


[QUOTE](even the pictures are taken from our DTP guys, after being prepared for the print so they look a bit blueish to me). [/QUOTE]

I assume they converted them to CMYK (looks like it). However, if you attach a color profile to the files (e.g. US Web coated) and then export them to RGB, you have the correct colors again. That´s what I do to give the boss print previews he can have a look at on the monitor and that also come very near to the final print result.




Unadak -> (7/23/2002 3:55:22 AM)

Just got my September 2002 PCGamer issue today (July 22), and the reviewer (William R. Trotter) gave UV a 89%! :)




David Heath -> (7/24/2002 11:00:41 AM)

You are gona love it!

Welcome to the board, always good to see fresh fish....er I mean new people:)




Caltone -> (7/29/2002 4:24:25 AM)

Computer Gaming World gave UV 3 out of 5 stars in the current issue.

I'm not sure the reviewer even played it much. Seems his only complaint was having to look after assets in Australia while playing a short campain. I'm not sure why this is an issue but I haven't played the small campaigns. I would think if its a short campaign you would just ignore any units you didn't need.

Overall a positive review with some hints for even bigger and better things for WITP.

Drop me a line when you are ready.

I used vortigen for UV. Took about a week from the time I ordered.

Patience, grasshopper!




David Heath -> (8/14/2002 10:09:42 AM)

The Wargamer posted a "Uncommon Valor: Campaign for the South Pacific", stating "Uncommon Valor is a spectacular operational level wargame that provides players with an unparalleled level of depth"

Tuomas Seijavuori -> Pelit -magazine 8/2002 gives UV 92/100 points (8/15/2002 9:25:17 PM)

Finnish [url=www.pelit.fi]Pelit[/url] -magazine gives UV 92/100 points in its four page review (!). English summary says:

"Uncommon Valor (Matrix Games/2by3 Games) Back to the old not-so-good days when men were made of steel and strategy games were only for hardcore players. Unfortunately, today strategy games are much easier to play. Matrix shows uncommon valor while publishing this hc-strategists' dream-come-true.

[COLOR=blue]Points for strategists: 92 (out of 100)[/COLOR]
[COLOR=blue]For human beings: 80"[/COLOR]

Don't ask why they think it's unfortunate that games are easier to use these days... probably just a mistake.

Hi,

is there a link or is it "just" a magazine review. I went to their website but my finish is a bit rusty ;)




Shaun Wallace -> lol (8/16/2002 12:40:20 AM)

Both. But the online version of the review is for subscribers only. Log in and you will able to read it online too. If I'll be having an exceptionally boring day today, I may translate a couple of short quotes in the spirit of "fair use".
