Rome: Total War goes further back in time with its new real-time strategy expansion, Alexander. As the title suggests, you get the chance to repeat the conquests of the legendary Macedonian conqueror, marching out of Greece and across the Middle East all the way to India. Unlike last year's Barbarian Invasion, this more modest, download-only expansion adds just four factions and a smaller campaign map. But the emphasis on the lifetime of one of history's greatest warriors ties the whole package
Here's a little secret for you: we, the editors of GamesRadar, love Jaws Unleashed. Not because it's a particularly well-designed game, which it isn't. No, we love it because of its rich potential for gruesome aquatic stupidity. We love it because it's so over-the-top that what would otherwise be cruel becomes hilarious. We love it because a shark fires missiles. And we've decided to share some of our favorite moments with you in two spankin' new videos, taken from the Xbox version of the
Here's a little secret for you: we, the editors of GamesRadar, love Jaws Unleashed. Not because it's a particularly well-designed game, which it isn't. No, we love it because of its rich potential for gruesome aquatic stupidity. We love it because it's so over-the-top that what would otherwise be cruel becomes hilarious. We love it because a shark fires missiles. And we've decided to share some of our favorite moments with you in two spankin' new videos.

The high-speed, high-precision sport of automotive drift racing is starting to catch on in the US, and D1 Grand Prix is ready to cash in. Due out in mid-July, the game realistically simulates the finer points of skidding sideways across racetracks and ruining your tires.
It sounds simple, but after sitting down and playing the game for ourselves, we know better. The real-life sport of drifting takes incredible precision and skill, and D1 Grand Prix is no different, with its drifts requiring
You know all those games that line the movie theater hallways and Wal-Mart vestibules? Break 'em All is an homage to those one-quarter games that take all of six seconds to understand - you're a paddle on the bottom of the screen, ricocheting a ball around until it busts every floating brick along the top. If you've been wandering those movie halls for years now, the name Arkanoid may ring some bells.
But what differentiates Break 'em All from every other game like this is its infusion of
Multiplayer murder game The Ship started as a modification for Half-Life 2, but it's now about to launch as a stand-alone title. Set to dock on Valve's Steam game download service in mid July, or September 15 in stores, The Ship offers a neat twist on your average deathmatch, and we've climbed aboard for some hands-on action.
The Ship features both multiplayer and single-player berths and in both modes your goal is the same. As a passenger aboard one of several different-sized craft, ranging
Even with the glut of incredible looking strategy games announced for the PC this year, its still tough to find something truly original. Then we saw Paraworld. Unlike the high-tech wars of Supreme Commander and Command & Conquer 3, Paraworld is set in a parallel universe where dinosaurs still roam the earth. Ancient tribes of men control these beasts and form armies made of 100% pure childhood imagination - seriously, who didnt love dinosaurs when they were a kid?
Three factions represent
In a world of Gran Turismo and Mario Kart, it's easy to overlook practically every other racer thats languishing on retail shelves. But one series that really deserves a multiplayer look is Micro Machines - its bare-bones gameplay and frenzied power-ups make every single race a shouting match between friends.
We sat down for a four-player session and lovingly crafted a movie - click that movies tab above - to illustrate exactly why you'll want to grab three friends and start tearing across
The Hope Street Police Station is already swarming with masked thugs and practically engulfed in flames by the time the cavalry arrives. Our armored police wagon smashes through the gate and into the snowy precinct courtyard, and as a lifeless punk slides off our hood, our sergeant kicks open the doors and we spill out onto the pavement. We're not five seconds out of the van when the pyromaniacs who call themselves the Burners crash a garbage truck through the outer wall, blowing up a police
When we first saw Untold Legends: Dark Kingdom, it looked like a high-definition remake of the PSP adventuring series - and a not-so-exciting way to say hello to the PlayStation 3. Now that it's had a little more time to simmer, it's starting to stand out. With the graphics tuned up and the gameplay refined, Untold Legends begins to seem like an adventure worth embarking on.
The revamped warrior character is a far cry from the steroid-soaked joke that the game debuted with. Though he's still a
