It's the end of another great year for gamers. Two new systems launched. Two handhelds waged bloody battle. And next gen gaming got a big kick in the pants - thanks to a year of lonely rule by the Xbox 360. PC gaming fought fire with nukes, waging its battle against the console-based onslaught. In short, it ruled.
How do we handle this? We're handing out our gleaming Platinum Chalice to those games and systems which gave us the business. No boring list of 37 different strategy games, divided

And you can see more of the martial arts trained hombres in their current-gen incarnation if you click on the Images tab above.
Built on the Prince of Persia engine and developed by many of the team who once worked on the scimitar-waving monarch, this movie-based adventure will feature the same kind of
Like his line of books, Tom Clancy pimps a new game once or twice a year. That's why it comes as no surprise that Ubisoft Paris and Red Storm Studios are bringing us the first full CG trailer for Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter 2, the sequel to this year's popular infantry-warfare shooter, and we are damn excited. Just click on the Movies tab and scope out the video titled, “Tom Clancys Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter 2 - trailer 12-18-06.”

As we reported in our exclusive preview of Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter 2, players will have access to a new ground-based support vehicle called MULE, and now we've captured the first shot of the rugged rover in action.
A multi-purpose armoured vehicle, players can take control of MULE and drive it around, safe in the knowledge that it's impervious to attacks from assault rifles. Its resilience also makes it an ideal place for the ghosts to take cover behind when
Though we and everyone else kinda saw it coming, publisher Ubisoft announced today that Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter is getting a sequel. It is scheduled to hit shelves in Spring 2007 for Xbox 360, PS3, PC and PSP.
The original was one of the first games to offer a truly next-gen experience, technically and graphically, so it will be quite a challenge for the developers to "wow" us all over again. At the moment, they're promising better AI, morphing light and shadows and shifting weather

It's up to futuristic Ghost squad with their upgraded Integrated Warfighter System to protect the 1,900 mile border.
GRAW2 will visit new locations as
We've managed to get hold of a shot of Tomb Raider: Anniversary and, compared to the first one released, this is positively action packed.
Earlier this year publisher Eidos announced its plans to release a remake of the original Tomb Raider for PS2, PC and PSP, and accompanied it with one solitary shot of Lara walking away. Now we can see her diving down a waterfall which is the sort of action we should be expecting from
Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter 2, Ubisoft's next-gen sequel to one of the year's best squad-action titles, will feature impressive dynamic weather and environment effects, advanced AI over the original game and a number of enhancements to GRAW's brilliant Cross Com system.
Weather will now affect the levels around you, with puddles forming and collecting during heavy rainstorms, forcing you to constantly readjust your game plan as the weather worsens. For instance, heavy rain might mask your
