What's your favorite thing about the Uncharted series? Is it the characters? The shooting? The climbing? The cinematic adventures? One of these major aspects didn't make the cut in Uncharted: Golden Abyss, and you might be surprised to find out which one...
Capcom may be notorious for its sequels, but in 1999 it set up Production Studio 4 to focus on creating original titles. So far the fruits have been mixed, with the startling Viewtiful Joe and the flawed PN 03 preparing the way for this latest rainbow-coloured assault on the eyes. In singleplayer, that assault is as dazzling as it is brief, but Under The Skin is designed for company. The focus is firmly on twoplayer chaos, with the singleplayer mode acting as little more than a tutorial with
Sometimes you don’t want to be waist-deep in spent casings and brown, de-saturated environments.

Upon first play, it's almost too easy to dismiss Undertow. This side-scrolling shooter featuring the usual, "left stick moves, right stick shoots" controls and absolutely tiny characters really doesn't make a dazzling first impression.

We're not alone in the universe... in fact, it's getting kind of crowded here. In Universe at War: Earth Assault, the latest in a long run of PC real-time strategy titles ported to the Xbox 360, our planet is invaded by not one, not two, but three
alien races intent on settling their ancient interstellar war once and for all. This diversity of factions and strategy is the game's greatest strength, but in the end, may overwhelm console players relatively new to the genre.
Playing Uno on Xbox Live Arcade will teach you a lot of things you didn't know - namely, how to play Uno. Most people remember the basics: ditch all the cards in your hand to win, but you'll need to sidestep the Skip and Reverse traps while avoiding the deadly Draw Two and Draw Four cards. But whether they know it or not, most people play with house rules, like drawing cards until you get one you can play or adding two Draw Two cards to make the next poor bastard draw four.
While UT2003 was well received, Epic's true success can't be judged on that alone. In an infinite chain, it isn't the first link you judge, but the movement onwards.
While still very much in the same vein, the improvements in UT2004 are so varied, polished and deep that they make any devotee of the genre consider upgrading. In fact, its range is extensive enough to make those who turned their nose up at the business-as-usual nature of UT2003 come storming back.
While there are large changes,
With Call of Duty 4 largely humiliating Halo in the Xbox Live popularity contest, you can’t help but feel Unreal Tournament III has arrived late to a party already at full capacity. And yet…when something turns up in this kind of shape, it’s always going to be welcome.
Stack this up against the glut of multiplayer shooters on 360 and we’ll award you no prizes whatsoever for guessing which is the offspring of a
