If we were to judge this based entirely on the opening city fly-by, we might say it was one of the most impressive DS games we’ve ever seen. Streets, cars, skyscrapers and pedestrians in a bustling 3D rendering of New York, powered at a super-smooth frame rate by a humble handheld console. Amazing, we might say. We’re going to have some serious fun here!
The government has lost contact with a top-secret research station, and it sends you to investigate. Welcome to C.O.R.E., a first-person shooter that feels far more like Wolfenstein 3D or Doom than anything remotely modern.
The Sikh temple massacre level in Hitman 2. Hot Coffee. Urinating in Conker. Weve seen it all on Xbox, yet no one game has quite elected the same level of disbelief and horror as Cabelas Alaskan Adventures, which encourages you whip out a rifle and fatally wound a lady caribou by shooting her right in front of her
For a game that’s all about stalking wild animals over vast landscapes like Elmer Fudd, Cabela’s 2009 misses the target by a mile. The environments – from the South African Serengeti to the icy mountains of Canada – are unsubtly channeled, so that you never really get the chance to explore any more than the developers want you to.

If the thought of getting up early, intentionally smelling like buck urine and sitting in one spot for hours waiting for something to shoot isn't entirely foreign, then Cabela's Trophy Bucks might seem interesting to you. Seem interesting.
In this single-player, single mode, first-person shooting game, you are plopped in the middle of a prime hunting spot right as the best game (in this case, animals) are passing through or where the best fowl have decided to nest. In each of the
Managing the Roman Empire is no easy task, but somebody's got to do it. And in Caesar IV that somebody is you. After an eight year hiatus, the classic city-building franchise is back, in all of its micro-managing glory.
Limitations on city size and esthetic requirements are the two biggest obstacles (outside of the economy) that any budding governor is going to face. Just as in real life, real estate in Caesar IV is a limited resource and how well you plan out your city can easily make or
There's a line of people out the door, you're running three ovens and frosting stations, the cupcakes are still in the microwave, and the guy in the pink bunny costume is melting down because you mistakenly gave him a red-frosted, egg-shaped cake instead of the round, chocolate one with the sailboat. If only his favorite TV show was on...
This is a completely typical scenario in Cake Mania, a cute little bargain-priced title in which you play a baker's granddaughter determined to save the
You've been through the hell of World War II before in first-person shooters like Medal of Honor and Brothers in Arms. But beating back Hitler's blitzkrieg has never been as shell-shockingly chaotic and intense and indeed heavily scripted, as it is in Call of Duty 2.
You'll alternately fight in the American, British and Russian armies, each experience complete with fanatically historic weaponry and badly accented English. You'll regularly attempt heroic assaults against impossible odds,
There are times while playing Call of Duty 2 that you'd be forgiven for thinking the apocalypse was happening around you.
Scampering across a Sicilian beach, you'll be ducking, diving and weaving as seemingly everyone in the world takes pot-shots at your ass. Explosions batter your ears and flames can be seen all around.
Call of Duty 2, even more so than its prequel, is built around a structure of some rather excellent first-person-shooty bits, which then lead into some of the most
Last year around this time, we were frothing at the mouth over Call of Duty 2. But now, a year older and a little wiser, we expect more out of our Xbox 360 than some jazzy looking smoke bombs. Fortunately, Call of Duty 3 adds just enough new features to bring us back for
