Multiplayer games - local network XBOX 360
Playing multiplayer games over local area network (LAN) is a somewhat forgotten form of multiplayer, which had its heyday in the 1990s when Internet cafes were extremely popular. In LAN, players don't need to connect via the Internet, because their computers or consoles are directly connected to each other (wirelessly or with the use of network cables). This form of multiplayer is usually chosen by people who get together in one place (called LAN parties).

Strategy 16 September 2009
Command & Conquer: Red Alert 3 - Commander's Challenge is a spin-off to the popular strategy game series C&C: Red Alert, developed for console players exclusively. Created by Electronic Arts, the game is actually a slightly cut version of the Uprising expansion, available to the owners of PCs some couple of months earlier. There is no regular story campaign in this game, instead, the main focus is the eponymous Challenge Mode. After choosing one of the three factions, the players take part in over 50 diverse challenges of varying difficulty level. The mechanics are generally based on tried solutions, but have been a bit simplified and adjusted to the capabilities of the consoles. In subsequent missions the players develop their base, gather resources, and fight in battles, but the array of additional activities is pretty big, and requires the player to employ different strategies.

The game’s foundation is, again, the story campaign, which can be played either solo or in cooperation. An interesting feature of the game is that different characters often face different challenges (according to their skills), which allows the player to look at the events from different perspectives, and adds an element of competition. A multiplayer mode completes the game – here, like in the single, we can use a wide array of guns (from handguns, through sub-machine guns, to sniper rifles and rocket launchers). Call of Juarez: The Cartel was developed using the Chrome Engine – however this time, the visual layer is conspicuously outdated.
