This 2-hour private tour retraces the course of the former death strip between West and East Berlin, from Station Eberswalder Straße to Bernauer Straße. The Berlin Wall was a guarded concrete barrier that physically and ideologically divided Berlin from 1961 to 1989. The Eastern Bloc claimed that the Wall was erected to protect its population from fascist elements conspiring to prevent the "will of the people" in building a socialist state in East Germany. The West Berlin city government sometimes referred to it as the "Wall of Shame".It came to symbolize a physical marker of the "Iron Curtain" that separated Western Europe and the Eastern Bloc during the Cold War. Between 1961 and 1989, the Wall prevented almost all emigration from East Berlin to West Berlin. During this period, around 5,000 people attempted to escape over the Wall, with an estimated death toll ranging from 136 to more than 200 in and around Berlin.

Interactive Entertainment, is one of the best fantasy action games with RPG elements.The title continues the threads started in the previous section. The player's task is to create an orcish army, which will help him during the fight with his opponents. As you can guess, the game, just like the previous part, represents the hard, multi-month work of the creators, which results are full details of the characters and opponents, as well as refined elements of the environment, complemented by a rich set of animations and a realistic lighting system. To this should also be added several other changes and improvements in the mechanics of the game.This applies especially to the unique Nemesis system, which introduces very advanced artificial intelligence, which allows for more natural reactions of the character to the player's decisions, for example, after killing too many enemy leaders, the less important ones will start to be afraid, and this makes it easier to drag them to their side page.It is also worth mentioning the climatic, specially composed music that accompanies the player while roaming the volcanic wastes and new powers added to the hero's skills, thanks to which the direct fight with the opponents is even more impressive.Definitive EditionShadow of War Definitive Edition is a product containing both the basic version of the game and a packet of four additional elements, which includes two story expansions introducing the new campaign, as well as two nemesis expansions.The first DLC called Desolation of Mordor reveals a new region - the Lithlad Desert.

The heroine enters the fight using new powers based on the Light of Galadriel and the ability to wield the New Ring. This expansion also includes new orcish allies, subsequent side missions, and new boss fights.The last two downloadable contents, both Slaughter Tribe Nemesis and Outlaw Tribe Nemesis, add thousands of new enemies and supporters to the game. They also introduce spectacular animations of death and brutal executions, as well as add to the game the fortress, outposts and the wilderness, and diversified the assortment of the legendary items and the new orc weapon.StorylinePlayers take control of the main characters' duet again. The first of them is Talion, one of the Guardians of the Black Gate. The other is Celebrimbor - a specter that is the astral form of the elf who many centuries ago had forged the Rings of Power. As a ghost, in Talion's body, he makes a cooperation with him. The protagonists decide to create another ring, which is to provide them with enough power to gather the army and ultimately destroy Sauron.Of course, to achieve their goal, the main heroes have to face many other, more or less friendly characters. During the game, the player will also have the opportunity to meet the heroes known from Tolkien's books and their screening, which include, among others, the Balrog, the Witch-king of Angmar, and also the ruler of the dark - Sauron.GameplayIn the SoW game, players enter a vast, open world. As you can easily guess, their main goal is exploration. As in the previous section, the main character still has various skills useful in the fight and during the tour of the extraordinary land, but at the same time the combat mechanics, as well as the entire gameplay, have been diversified with several novelties. A good example is even more emphasis on RPG elements - in the game, there is more equipment, such as weapons and armors - and the possibility of mounting new mounts, such as dragons.The innovative Nemesis system has also been expanded, thanks to which the opponents acquire individual characteristics. It means in short, that depending on the actions, the player creates new, unique enemies or comrades.In addition to fighting against opponents, it is also important to come up with a strategy that will allow you to take control of the enemy's fortress. Of course, remember that the acquired object can always be recaptured.It's also worth knowing that in the game, is available the multiplayer mode, where players can bounce each other's fortresses.ReceptionThe Middle-earth: Shadow of War, just like its previous part, has been recognized as a very good game. The reviewers rated it very positively, indicating at the same time the enormous amount of pluses it has, and it is not just about graphics or soundtrack. Players primarily paid attention to the amazing atmosphere that the game creates and a very captivating story, full of interesting characters and sudden, dramatic twists. Many of the approvals have also gained a very well developed combat system and character development system.Additionally, some players were very positive about such elements of the game as a large number of weapons and armor, that can be upgraded, well-developed nemesis system, interesting side motives, many tasks, the presence of two mini-maps, level of difficulty and the possibility to create a large army, with which you can defend as well as attack the fortress.

The game is based on Robert Kirkman’s The Walking Dead series of graphic novels. In Saints & Sinners, the player is one of the survivors of the zombie apocalypse, which had turned most of the global population into undead walkers. The game is set in New Orleans and features various gameplay mechanics, including both stealth and direct combat, allowing the player to tailor their experience to their personal style. TWD: Saints & Sinners received positive reviews from the critics, who praised the game’s level of immersion and survivalist mechanics.Keep calm and stay quietSaints and Sinners offers a lot of variety in how the player can approach the gameplay. Walkers are sensitive to sound, so making a lot of noise with shooting will draw the herd on the player’s back in no time. That’s why stealth is so important - the player can sneak upon unsuspecting enemies and taking them down quietly, without alerting others. In S&S the player has a whole assortment of melee weapons, from screwdrivers to machetes and hatchets. Each weapon has limited durability, so the player should be very careful while using them.Always aim for the headOf course, the player can still shoot their way out of trouble. The game gives the player a real arsenal of firearms, some of which can be used together with melee weapons. Pistols, rifles, shotguns, and a bow will surely come in handy while facing a horde of undead.It’s a “man-versus-man” world nowWalkers aren’t the only threat awaiting the player in post-apocalyptic New Orleans. The city is ruled by different factions of bandits, waging a war against each other. Unlike the dead, humans are clever and will try to gain an upper hand over the player by flanking them. Aside from the bandits, New Orleans is inhabited by other survivors – normal folk doing all they can to survive the apocalypse. The player will have a chance to help them with their struggles or use them to the player’s advantage. Explore New Orleans overrun by the deadThe setting of TWD: S&S is New Orleans – this once bustling city has now become a ruin overrun by the walkers and ruled by gangs of bandits. The player can explore different parts of the city that can be found on the map. These locations include Rampart, Memorial Lane, Bastion and others. The areas vary from each other in terms of landscape, enemies and loot the player can find. Finding items and crafting materials is an important part of exploring desolate New Orleans.Previously on the Walking Dead…It’s been one year since the apocalypse started and the dead started to walk the earth. In this harsh world, the winners are those who adapt and persevere no matter what. In the destroyed city of New Orleans, an ongoing war between groups of survivors rages on, while herds of walkers roam the empty streets. There is no place for sympathy here, and sometimes your survival will be at the cost of another person’s life… ReceptionThe Walking Dead Saints and Sinners was met with positive reception. The reviewers praised the amount of content the developers managed to squeeze into their title, as well as the gameplay mechanics of fighting and scavenging in overrun New Orleans. The critics noted the solid writing and atmosphere of the game as other strong points of the title.
