The more we learn about Kane & Lynch: Dead Men, the more impressed we become. At first blush, the game doesn't seem all that different from a run-of-the-mill, crime-themed third-person shooter, but everything - from the action and cinematic presentation to the story and characters - has been handled with utmost care. With that in mind, it's hardly surprising that Kane & Lynch features some of the most inventive multiplayer modes this side of Halo 3.
We've already covered a lot of
Unlike all the other buddy-buddy games with funny names (Ratchet and Clank, Jak and Daxter, etc), the brooding seriousness of Kane and Lynch: Dead Men buries gamers in a murder-soaked world that most of us hope to never visit. Then again... taking control of two out-of-their-minds assassins and tearing the world a new one sounds like one hell of a videogame.
The game plays much like the Hitman series - guide your characters through a series of constantly updating missions while trying to avoid
What began as a quirky cult hit has now grown into a big franchise, as the Katamari series continues to expand just like its trademark sticky-ball.

One of the games we were most eager to get our hands on was Kid Icarus: Uprising, the first new title in the series since 1991’s Of Myths and Monsters on Game Boy. While our time playing the game was limited, we came away extremely impressed with how things are shaping up...
in a solid two hours playing Kid Icarus: Uprising, we're feeling much more
confident about Pit's adventure across land and sky. So about those controls…
Kid Icarus: Uprising is nearly here and continues to improve every time we see it. And that includes our recent round of multiplayer...
Suda51's title is as violent as you'd expect, only this time it's wrapped on in 1960s cool...
Summer 2003 and the internet is awash with rumours of a PS2 game that is supposedly Sony's answer to Halo. By mid-July, a , while Sony and developers Guerrilla remain resolutely schtum. Come the end of that month, the of the title is finally made and we learn that the near-future FPS will be squad-based (although players only control one character at a time), that the game will be structured around a number of set pieces and that the title takes major twentieth century theatres of war as its
