Right off the bat, publisher Ubisoft's adaptation of Beowulf - based on the upcoming Robert Zemeckis film, which in turn is based on a centuries-old epic poem - commits an unpardonable sin in the eyes of literary types. You might already be familiar with the story's progression: Beowulf, a mighty Scandinavian warrior, battles and slays a man-eating monster named Grendel with his bare hands. He then beheads Grendel's vengeful, horrific mother and - finally - dies fighting a dragon some 30 years
By injecting some new ideas into its current first-person shooter project, French developer Kylotonn (previously responsible for IronStorm) is hoping that Bet on Soldier will provide players with a refreshingly spicy twist to a genre that all-too-often relies on tried-and-tested formulas.Set somewhere in the not-too-distant future, BoS takes place against the grim backdrop of a war that has raged on earth for over eight destructive decades. However, the war isn't perpetuated by political,
Heavy Rain developer Quantic Dream's next game was revealed at E3. It's called Beyond: Two Souls, and you need to know everything about it immediately...
We'd teleport all of you to Tokyo to enjoy this year's TGS with us, but since we can't, experience the shows most game-filled booth in this new video straight from Japan...
We’ve played Beyond: Two Souls on PS3 and watched a further hour of gameplay. However, it’s for exactly that reason that we feel you should have the option of reading a spoiler-free preview. We’ll have more Beyond: Two Souls content very soon that will examine what we saw in more detail, but first, feel free to learn about how the game works and feels without worrying about encountering plot spoilers...

If ever there was a game that The Simpsons' Ned Flanders would buy for his children, it's this. No need for an 'Imagination Christmas' this year, eh? Diddly.
The Bible Game is actually surprisingly charming and inoffensive. As the name suggests, this is a game which tests your knowledge of the holy text. It doesn't stuff God down your throat (fortunately) and as it deals only with the Old Testament, targets the broadest audience possible. It's well-natured and quite
When you think of firework games, the mind immediately pings to Boom Boom Rocket (or for us older stagers, Fantavision). Both of these were cracking little titles - but developer Arkedo reckons it’s not a bit like either one of them - and it’s definitely not a puzzler!
Instead it appears to be a ballistic-based battler, a shoot-’em-up-into-the-sky, if you will. The object is to create barrages of beautiful
Understandably, we were a bit cynical when we heard about yet another casual sports minigame fest for Wii, but it looks like Big Beach Sports is actually set to deliver a few fresh twists on the genre. We were told the game is aimed at the "European audience," which explains the inclusion of cricket and soccer (football) in a beach game. Rounding out the six total games in Big Beach are volleyball, American football, disc golf (Frisbee golf)
Right now, many of us at GamesRadar are testing our brains on a daily basis, thanks to Nintendo's Brain Age. Its mental tests keep your mind alert by forcing it to concentrate, read aloud and memorize different patterns. Thing is, that game's loosely based on real-world studies - Big Brain Academy takes the "make me smarter" idea and spins it for the kiddies.
Instead of 100 lightning-fast math problems, Academy focuses on goofier puzzles like matching the shapes of television sets and playing
A year ago everyone was unscrewing their heads and proclaiming their undying love for Nintendo's handheld hit, Brain Age. A few months later, in June '06, the second wave of mind-muscling software came in the form of Big Brain Academy, a series a quirky minigames that focused more on fun than tracking actual performance as Brain Age did.
In June 2007, one year after the DS game hit, Big Brain Academy will return with another round of logic puzzles, this time on the Wii. If you spent any time
