Manny Rivera is a 13-year-old Mexican boy who owns a magic belt that turns him into the super hero El Tigre whenever he puts it on. However, sometimes Manny uses his super powers for good - like his father, the White Pantera - and sometimes mischief - like his grandfather, Puma Loco. This Nickelodeon cartoon translates pretty well to a videogame. The visuals are nothing a PS1 couldn’t handle and it plays out like a 2D platformer
Remember that episode of The Simpsons where Homer goes to hell and is sentenced to eat donuts for eternity, only to find that all of the Krispy Kremes in the fiery abyss cannot quell his unending hankering for the fried doughy treats? Well it won't be long after you start playing The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion before you're just like the animated éclair-scarfer, except you'll be in hell fighting monsters and it'll be your penchant for adventuring and treasure hunting that'll be
GamesRadar staffers have put hundreds of hours of our lives into Oblivion. Weve cured ourselves of vampirism, cleaned the world of the Daedra, and pranced around on the equine equivalent of a Ferrari.
Now, after the near-extortion that was the Horse Armor mod (a whopping 200 Gamer Points!) and more reasonable additions like Mehrunes Razor and the Wizards Tower, here comes Knights – the first genuine expansion (if PC owners are wondering about that $19.99 price tag, its because their
There are more than 160 missions in the original Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, but the one everyone remembers is the errand you ran for the Daedric prince Sheogorath, also known as the “Mad God”. Why? Because it starts with a bunch of people in the woods wearing only their underwear, moves on to the planet's stinkiest cheese, and ends with – SPOILER ALERT – a hailstorm of flaming German Shepherds. There were other great missions, but this was the one that everyone talked

Oblivion ushered in the current generation and let everyone know what the tech
was capable of, and it also ate many gamers’ lives, where being eaten never
felt so great. Five years of anticipation is, as they say, a lot to live up to.
So The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim comes marching along with its massive ad
campaign, making sure everyone knows of its imminent release. Does Skyrim have
the clout to back up its...
The third installment in the long-running and extremely popular Elder Scrolls series, Morrowind establishes a new standard in role-playing games. It's astonishing in its depth and detail, and also sets a new benchmark in graphics.
Morrowind's extreme open-endedness sets it apart. Despite the linear story, the way the other characters in the world interact with you changes based upon your actions. There are various guilds within the game, like the Assassins Guild, and whether or not they see
For all its creepy storytelling and Precious Moments-style character designs, Elebits is really nothing more than an elaborate game of hide and seek. Hundreds of electricity-spewing critters have gotten loose and it's your job to turn your house upside down and find them all. As you gather more of these living battery cells, objects in the area will activate, further empowering your proton pack - er, capture gun - to the point where it can lift chairs, refrigerators and eventually, entire
The first-person perspective has been dropped, but Elebits’ Wii DNA is present in Kai’s mission to hoover up the electro-beasts. Capturing Elebits (needed to open doors and operate machinery) is a neat, tactile affair – you shake the scenery with your stylus, tag the escaping ’Bits, and tap your sidekick Zero to grab them. In a nice arcadey twist, tagging the first Elebit begins a countdown – you’ve got a few seconds to try and grab more before Zero brings them in.
What happens when Nintendo puts together a completely nutso piece of musical software that's so out of the ordinary it's not even carried on retail store shelves? After playing with a gaggle of fish-like creatures that react in musical ways depending on how you touch them with the stylus, two GamesRadar editors dive into Electroplankton:
Dan Amrich, Working Musician: Electroplankton struck me as the handheld equivalent of a toy xylophone. It's got lots of pretty colors and anybody of any age
Engineering. Not so fun. But throw in some elephants, and you’ve got the premise for an addictive puzzler. You must herd elephants from point A to B. Except that en route there are chasms, fire pits and nasty swamps that spell out Nelly death.
