As you rebuild civilization and restore your people's faith in this sim/action hybrid, you'll find yourself honestly caring about your subjects' helpless lives. Nowhere is their plight more touching than Kasandora, where you help a starving desert tribe grow into a bustling village, only to see an old man die in the dunes.

Taking in a viewing of the BAMF-happy Jumper trailer, you might be bracing your self for the Deja-dizzies, foreseeing another game/movie tie-in starring Hayden Christensen and Sammy L. Jackson. But you'd be wrong, young Padawan. Jumper: Griffin's Story follows Jamie Bell's character (the immensely irritating Jimmy from King Kong), unfolding a different plot that intersects the events in the film.For those not in the know, “jumpers”
To posses an inner metronome is a glorious thing; the dance floor becomes your domain; the lead role in the trash-wanging musical sensation Stomp is yours for the taking; you find that people will like you better as you bop on your merry way. Alas, were not all so blessed.
But the musically challenged need fear no longer - were here to help. Welcome to our ten-step program, turning the rhythmically bare into Fred Astaire, all with the power of
In 1983 you, like us, would have played a Commodore 64. It was also the year you could have picked up a copy of 2000AD in the UK, to read it for Skizz written by a young Alan Moore. Twenty-five years later, the worlds of comics and games have definitively separated in terms of experience - so why do we see so many of our favorite comic creator names appearing in the credits of certain games? Rebellion bought 2000AD and Judge Dredd Magazine, Top Cow is half-owned by Eidos and Rockstars marketers
Listen, we thought we were just gonna kick some people in the balls. We didnt realize there were going to be financial considerations to worry over in Jackass.

At first glance, Juiced 2: Hot Import Nights, looks like another typical T&A affair. At times it felt like we were flipping through an issue of Maxim as dancers shimmied up and down poles in menu backgrounds while Juiced Girls popped up to attack us at every turn, firing off steamy stares towards the camera at every loading screen.

Squaresoft | Squaresoft | 2002
A third-person action game with light RPG elements added - and which happened to merge the Disney and Square universes in an utterly captivating way
What made it so great?
Kingdom Hearts is what happens when you give classic, universally loved characters to the best RPG storytellers in the business and ask them, "could you maybe fancy this up and make one of those video games with 'em?" It sounded ludicrous at first - Donald Duck as a wizard,
Some games really dish out a kicking before you get any sort of pleasure from them, making you feel quite inadequate and full of self-loathing. (Thought you were good at games? Think again, you useless idiot.) So after countless hard nights of enduring your gamers ego getting beating after beating, it should be comforting to know that one driving game is on its way which will (metaphorically) wipe away the tears and haul you down the bar for a couple of pick-me-ups.
