Oh yes: it's a sordid business. In my experience, those with first-hand experience of what supersonic-speed chunks of metal do to people don't speak of honour, or duty, or the privilege of fighting for freedom. Most don't want to talk about it at all. Full Spectrum Warrior doesn't shy away from the unpleasant parts of war, featuring a mass grave in an early level, but this is very much gaming from a Hollywood angle. The heroes are ordinary men, doing extraordinary things, and saving the day. Or
Full Spectrum Warrior: Ten Hammers, the new iteration of the thinking man's shooter (read: the one where you don't really do any of the shooting yourself), outranks its predecessor in every way: better variety, better interface, better story, and better multiplayer. But it's all for naught because someone got the bright idea that Ten Hammers shouldn't be fun but instead be as hard as boot camp in Full Metal
Puberty has blessed you with a metal arm and leg. You tell people you're "the closest thing to God there is." Your man-child adventures have been painstakingly hand-drawn by subservient throngs of Japanese artists. Now, your devotees can press buttons to electronically relive your harrowing exploits in Fullmetal Alchemist: Dual
Don’t let those rampant exclamation marks fool you – this minigolf game isn’t that exciting. Maybe one mark, at a push, but two? That’s! Insane! This is golf of the uncraziest variety. Its three vanilla courses look pretty enough, but there are no clever Mouse Trap-style contraptions, no wacky pirate ships or fire-breathing golf dragons hidden in any of them.
We've lived with the Wii for more than a year now, so there's really no reason to belabor this opening point: Yes, the Wii plays host to an inordinate amount of minigame collections. Furthermore, most of them are insipid, although some few are actually worth your time, whether you're flying solo or waggling with companions. Furu Furu Park unfortunately does not fall into that worthwhile category, but it's hard to tell if it just misses the mark or if it truly falls into the category of soulless

For everyone who has ever lusted for unadulterated Player versus Player (PvP) action in their MMO, Fury is the game for you. Developers at Auran have done away with all the silly leveling grinds, extraneous mobs and annoying quest lines for their flagship MMO. Normally confined to arenas and battlegrounds, PvP gameplay takes front and center in Fury - in fact, it's the only direction there is. That's right, folks, there's not a single quest to be
The fictional future's always looked pretty dire, what with all the killer robots, invading aliens and - of course - World War III. But we'd gladly accept any of those dystopian fates over the one presented in party game sequel Fuzion Frenzy 2. At least they sound halfway interesting. This Xbox 360 exclusive, on the other hand, is a repetitive bore.
Dont get us wrong. We'd love to see a solid four-player party game on Microsoft's console, which offers plenty of over-the-headset Live action,
