What will the future of tactical shooters bring? Gears of War knows the answer: pain. Gears of War puts you just over the right shoulder (third person style) of former soldier Marcus Fenix. Marcus has been brought out of "retirement" (a polite way of saying "sprung from prison") so that he and his crew can battle the Locust Horde, a bizarre army of monstrosities that have clawed their way out of the underground in order to eat people and destroy their stuff. Unsettling, yeah...but what's so

In a marked contrast to previous Ghost Recon titles, Advanced Warfighter fast-fowards the hyper-real military combat series to 2013. Scratch built for 360 to fully flex the hardware's tech muscle, it looks stunning. But it's the new gameplay features that make this one of the first 'true' next-gen titles and a revolution in squad based gaming.

God of War has been in development for a considerable time. Is this because the team has been
One of the key features of Gran Turismo 4 when it was first announced was that you would be able to play the game online. However, back in September, Sony revealed that the game would be .
