Just in time to cement hero Rico Rodriguez as this year's most unconventional CIA agent in a game, we've got new media for Just Cause's winning combination of tropical scenery and huge explosions. Check out these 360 stills of a stealthy infiltration, Rodriguez-style.
As if gatecrashing a gentleman's club in the crater of a dormant volcano isn't high adventure enough, Just Cause will let you do it by throwing Rodriguez out of a perfectly good plane and paragliding in. Of course, you could
Eidos has parachuted in with yet another bite-sized look at Just Cause, its upcoming action adventure that we've taken to calling "Grand Theft Auto in Cuba." As you know if you've read our coverage, the basic premise is that you're a secret agent helping rebels shake up the corrupt rulers of a chain of islands.
This mini-trailer shows off a number of the non-wheeled vehicles in the game - namely, a wicked fast speedboat and aircraft ranging from a helicopter to a fighter jet. It also shows a
We've got some power-packed new screens from the upcoming 3D real-time strategy game Joint Task Force. We're not too easily impressed, but damn - even we have to admit that these screens look good.
JTF drops you into realistic war scenarios, stocked with modern mechanized ass-kickers like the M1A2 tank, the F-117 stealth bomber, and AH-64 battle 'copters. Using all your deadly toys efficiently is the key to victory. And while this batch of new screens does show several of the war machines
Maybe you saw the screenshots of Sierra's upcoming real-time strategy game Joint Task Force and said "No way the real game's going to look that good." (We doubted, anyway.) We're happy to offer a new video of gameplay footage that shows the truth: those high-res tanks and massive explosions are the real deal.
The game's creators are eager to show off cool tricks like ragdoll physics and weather variations which, until recently, haven't been a big part of point-and-click strategy games. If

Developer Most Wanted Entertainment believes that its upcoming RTS Joint Task Force - due for PC release this autumn - will be given an extra edge of realism thanks to the cooperation of several military hardware manufactures, and you can judge for yourself with this explosive gameplay footage in the link above.
Joint Task Force is an action packed RTS that concentrates on fighting rather than collecting resources and will test your
• Jaws Unleashed (WMV, 11.6MB)

We've managed to fish out a new trailer of THQ's Jaws Unleashed - due for release for PS2, Xbox and PC in July - the underwater action game where you take control of the killer shark.
The game's story mode is spread across 10 different environments and has Chief Brody's son Michael attempting to capture Jaws. On the other hand the killing machine under your control has to create havoc in the water by attacking swimmers and making use of
We'll just get the obvious out of the way - Just Cause is essentially a prettier, slightly more featured version of Grand Theft Auto, sipping an umbrella drink. You've got the massive, open-ended environments, 180 land, sea and air vehicles to play with and countless thugs who all want you dead. So what's the hook? You've got the unofficial backing of the United States and a big ol' tropical playground to blow apart.
And ironically enough, it's literally a hook that makes the game move. If you

We've used a little strategic planning to get our hands on these new shots from Vivendi's new real-time strategy game, Joint Task Force, due to be released for PC this autumn.
The RTS is set in the near future where NATO, the UN and the US are struggling to cope with the amount of military unrest that is occurring in the world. Consequently, western leaders have formed an elite military squad, called the Joint Task Force to combat growing terrorism and police trouble hot
There is little fiction as immediate or engrossing as today's reality. Joint Task Force makes smart use of the current conflicts that burn across the world in a strategy title that emphasizes actual military hardware.
JTF makers plan to fling us around the world in 20 missions that take place in hotspots that include the Middle East, Central Asia and the Balkans. Early screens of JTF look gritty and realistic to the last rivet, highlighting faithfulness to the licenses that the developers
Last summer's street racer hit Juiced could well be gearing up for a spin on next-gen consoles.
The news that Juiced publisher THQ has bought Juice Games, the UK developer behind the car-modder, is revealed in today's issue of trade mag MCV and is a sure indication that we can expect more Juiced in the future.
Originally released for PC, PS2 and Xbox, Juiced cashed in on the popularity of Need for Speed with its own take on street racing, and ultimately enjoyed considerable success itself,
