Ready for another adventure with a certain Lombax and his robotic
best friend? Insomniac’s next title in the R&C series: Ratchet and Clank:
All 4 One takes on a different perspective, giving gamers a chance to play with
up to four other teammates. With a new main co-op feature that utilizes
collaboration on puzzles, wacky weapons and different playable characters for
once, All 4 One casts a wider net than other co-op games this fall...
Europeans, pretending to be Americans, shooting South Americans. Works for Arnie, Dolph and Jean-Claude, so why not Hungarian devs Atomic Motion? They drop six mercs in the Amazon, armed with enough cliche to level a small country. It’s tacky stuff, worsened by truly abysmal vocal performances – these actors sure aren’t American. We’re not sure they’re even human...
The lore of time traveling devices is one of deeply rich and storied heritage. There was the DeLorean in Back to the Future, a mythical hovercraft in HG Wells' famous novel, the amazing spaceship in Flight of the Navigator... and a magical washing machine? Yes, time travel has arrived to the ridiculous, flatulence-riddled world of the Rabbids, and they're on a crash course to make their mark on every critical moment in this world's history...
When a city cradled in the shadow of a dam boasts its the safest place ever built, gut instinct warns us that troubles a brewin. Unfortunately for the residents of Geo City, gut instincts seem to be in short supply (alongside motor skills, common sense, and fashion taste), so when the dam actually crumbles, theyre totally unprepared. Its your job to keep the key players alive, and in the process, unravel the sinister truth behind the dams collapse. Raw Danger is an adventure-style disaster
You would be forgiven for thinking that the 'DS' part of the title infers that DC Studios, the game's Montreal-based developers, have, in some way, embraced the unique features that Ninty's new handheld offers. But you'd be oh-so-very wrong. For starters, Rayman, so called, DS is actually just a port of the N64 and Dreamcast game, Rayman 2 The Great Escape. Which may well have been excellent in 1999 but today - six years later and on a revolutionary piece of kit - it's a doddery
I first saw a pre-release box of this in a shop. I looked at the screenshots on the back and thought 'Oh good - this looks like Rayman 2'. Turns out, though, it is literally Rayman 2. You know, that game that's over a decade old and gets released on every system that's ever made? Uh-huh, it's that, with an added 3D effect. But don't just dismiss it because it's old. Or because it's got Rayman in it. It's actually, incredibly, still worthy of your time. Here's why...
The visuals alone are enough to lull even the most seasoned gamer
into a false sense of security. Vibrant colors abound, preposterous characters
gambol and cavort with giddy abandon, and vivacious animation breathes life
into the already-fecund levels. But don’t be fooled by Rayman Origins. This
intensely beautiful 2D platformer can easily crack open and scramble even the
most hardened of hardcore gamers.
And that’s a very good thing...
As a launch title for the Wii, Rayman Raving Rabbids earned a spot in the hearts of many an early adopter of Nintendos newest system. Featuring a nifty mix of waggle-based mingames, cutesy-yet-deranged rabbits, and a limbless protagonist with a penchant for dressing up as a granny (among other things), Rabbids was universally regarded as a fun and friendly “new-gen” experience. Parents and kids across the land spent hours besting each other at dozens of rabbit-centric, hand-flailing

Having had last Christmas ruined by a soundtrack of manic rabbid wails emitting from the family Wii, we were dreading the sequel. And by the minigame-anthology laws laid down by Mario Party, this should have been worse than the first. Only, by some small Christmas miracle, its not.
Gone is the Neanderthal focus on aimless controller peddling, replaced with a whole host of game ideas. Just five minutes of play can see gesture mimicking to ride a mechanical bull, memory games to
TV Party is Rabbids do the Balance Board. About two thirds of the minigames require one, from surfing through space on an iron board to dodging potholes on a haywire Harley Davidson. The games can be played with remote tilting, but where’s the fun in trying to urinate on plants if you’re not leaning to direct your virtual wee-maker?
