Supergiant Games' next project, Transistor, was playable at PAX East. Check out our hands-on with the game...
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
If Ratatouille weren't based on a film, its story - about a rat named Remy who wants to become a world-class French chef - would probably elevate it to weird-work-of-genius status. As it is, this platform-hopping adventure is relegated to the realm of baby games, although that doesn't mean it should be
Not content with the tradition of making all games based on a movie suck hard, the good folks at Buena Vista Games have their work cut out for them. Luckily, their latest offering, Meet the Robinsons - inspired by the Disney CG film of the same name - is shaping up to be one of the lucky few to break the mold. Buena Vista is determined to stray from the plot of the film, in which dorky, yet tragically orphaned Lewis searches for memories of his mother... and is subsequently kidnapped and sucked
The Turtles are back, but Vanilla Ice isn't. That's probably for the best, to be honest. Anyway, to complement the new CGI-heavy Turtles film that's out this year, Ubisoft is resurrecting the pizza-eating dudes.
Apparently the new film is a bit darker and edgier than previous Turtles fare (harking back to the original comics and role-playing game) and the game will reflect that. While we've yet to see just how "dark" and "edgy" this'll be, the way the game plays seems, so far, to be a little
During the formative years of most of GamesRadar's veteran staff, games like Disney's Ducktales and Aladdin were often amazingly polished and fun, in spite of their obvious kid appeal. But somewhere along the line this changed, and cartoon-licensed games started aiming squarely at the rugrats. Good for them, but older game fans were left out.
This is why THQ's upcoming Avatar: The Last Airbender is rather interesting. While it's not akin to the best of those old games, it's a very capable,
Self-aware, crossdressing marionettes are usually the stuff of taco-fueled nightmares, but they're all too real in the crazy, bizarre world of Zatch Bell! (exclamation theirs). The popular anime series pairs up these pseudo-demonic dummies, known as Mamodo, with like-minded humans, forming symbiotic partnerships that then struggle for control of the Mamodo World. Heady stuff, and this madness is coming to the PS2 and GameCube once more thanks to Zatch Bell!: Mamodo Fury.
Whereas the previous
Every once in a while, an aging series needs a shot in the arm. When Spyro the Dragon originally debuted on PlayStation back in 1998, it was a cute platformer that still managed to be enjoyed by young and old alike. Eight years and over a dozen games later, the series has devolved into something mostly for the kids - who, in fact, largely ignore it.
As the title of the game implies, Legend of Spyro: A New Beginning hopes to reverse all that, taking the little purple guy back to his roots and

Poor GameCube. All we heard of it at E3 back in May was the odd muffled squeak as it struggled, bound and gagged, in Nintendo's boot - Wii had to have every last lumen of spotlight for itself, after all. As a result, one of the best looking games we've ever seen almost passed by unnoticed.
Super Paper Mario isn't, despite first impressions, a 'Super' version of Paper Mario. It's a paper version of Super Mario. See? It's a stubbornly retro 2D Mazza platformer, where you're
Hands-on time with LEGO Star Wars II: The Original Trilogy only confirms what you already knew: If this adorable game does not make you smile, you have no soul. Of course, cute ain't everything, and that's the real reason why our time traipsing through Episodes IV (A New Hope) and V (The Empire Strikes Back ) in a preview version of this Xbox 360 action/adventure was so satisfying. Not only is the game almost huggable (all these warm-fuzzy screens are taken from the Xbox 360 version), it's a
