When Spirit Tracks was first announced, you could feel the wave of fanboy revulsion reverberate throughout the internet. “Link on a train?!” was a subject line in about a billion emails, texts and forum posts, and we have to say even the GR office was abuzz with incredulous fervor. Today, having essentially seen the first 90 minutes of the game (and played through the first dungeon), we can safely say Spirit Tracks is every damn bit as good as Plantom Hourglass
We've been seeing a lot of LEGO Batman recently, mostly in the form of new screens, but it wasn't until this week's Game Developer's Conference that we got to see the plasticized caped crusader in action. And we saw a lot, from the suits and gadgets that Batman and Robin will use to fight crime, to the missions where you'll take control of some of their arch-nemeses and go toe-to-toe against Gotham's finest. And although we can't yet say how it
If you thought last week’s trailer for the fourth Indiana Jones film felt a little flat with its combo of CG locales and one very old Harrison Ford, then you’d be happy to hear that you can trust LEGO Indiana Jones as a better outlet for your nostalgia. Developed by Traveller’s Tales - the team behind LEGO Star Wars - Indy will traverse locales from each of the first three films, while embracing youngsters who aren’t
The decision to immortalise the wise-cracking hero in LEGO form is clear: the Indiana Jones films are almost as iconic as Star Wars, and their cheeky humour runs parallel with the tongue-in-cheek approach of the recent LEGO games. With the building blocks already in place from the Star Wars games, it hasn’t been too difficult for Traveller’s Tales to whip the engine into shape and recreate the original three films in a style fit for
We've played levels from all three movies featured in the game. But how does plastic Indy stand up against plastic Han Solo? Let our words and videos inform you.
Lego Star Wars didn't so much secure the support of a wide audience as capture, for entirely separate reasons, the hearts of two. Children warmed to its unpatronising approach and to adults it provided an antidote to George Lucas' wavering prequels.
For its successor - at first glance a project with everything to gain - the use of Episodes IV to VI as source material is, in the eyes of adults at least, of significant concern. Will innocent parody earn the same appreciation when applied to
Our first real glimpse of Lego Star Wars II: The Original Trilogy was of Luke Skywalker running over pedestrians in a landspeeder. As he thoughtlessly careened around the streets of Mos Eisley, any Lego people who got in his way were reduced to flailing their limbs while lying helplessly on their backs. No wonder those goons in the cantina don't like him.
While it still features plenty of the adorable lightsaber-swinging, puzzle-solving, multiple-character-controlling action that made the
Its reassuring to see that the DS juggernaut is showing no signs of slowing down. There are constantly enough crazy games being made that demonstrate its mass appeal. Wed only be happier if there were more Wii games being produced. But dont let the fact that most of the games previewed here are imports stop you from getting excited. Remember, imported DS games can play on your American DS. You just need to get over your crushing xenophobia. Feast your eyes on the cornucopia of love
Chances are that if you’ve ever had access to a computer in the last year or have an internet-savvy friend, then you’ve glimpsed a peek at Line Rider - the flash-based net phenomenon that enables you to design ridiculous tracks for a miniscule sledder to toboggan down. We got a peek at the new incarnation of Rider for the PC, Wii and DS and were impressed to find that you won’t be shelling out for a simple rehash, but rather a
Drawn to Life developer, 5th Cell has another promising DS title up its sleeve that’s worth keeping an eye on. Lock's Quest will place you in the role of Lock. He’s an Archineer - that’s part architect, part engineer - who’s charged with defending his town from an invading clockwork army. Led by the undeniably evil Lord Agony, the clockworks are after your hometown’s rich Source wells.
