We got to play a short level in John Woo Presents Stranglehold and we can't remember another game that made it so easy to feel like an action hero. While plenty of other games have complex controls and twin-gun, slow-mo shooter action, but film director John Woo literally invented the trick - and to slide across a table while firing two pistols non-stop in his game, all you need to do is bump into it and glide. Swinging from lanterns and running up staircase railings requires little more
It's not easy to get access to the BioShock theater deep in the 2K Games booth, but if you can get in, you'll see one of the best games of the show. The creators of the seminal spooky shooter System Shock 2 are calling BioShock the “spiritual successor” to the 1999 award-winner, but other than the pedigree and approach, the games are totally different. And BioShock is almost certainly unlike any first-person shooter you've seen.
BioShock takes place underwater, in an abandoned,
We've seen nothing of bloody dino-shooting game Turok since 2002's Turok Evolution - until today.
The T-rex-bothering series was recently picked up by Buena Vista Games and the company's Propaganda studio is currently developing both Xbox 360 and PS3 versions of an entirely new 'Rok. Even though it's over a year away from release, we've just been given behind-closed-doors access to the 360 version of the game at Buena Vista's E3 stand.
Players take on the role of the heavily-armed and,
As the next-gen step for one of the biggest series ever created, Command and Conquer 3: Tiberium Wars is one of the most exciting games of E3 - not just because of the stunning visuals, but because of three little words that are heard at the end of the teaser trailer shown exclusively behind closed doors at the show: "Then they came." Command and Conquer is back, and its bringing company.
Unfortunately, EA is unwilling to detail just who "they" are, no matter how many times we poke them in the
Well, you certainly have to give Atari, Eden Studios and probably also Microsoft some props for ambition. Test Drive Unlimited is aiming to create and grow an entire online community. Put simply, Test Drive Unlimited is meant to be played with Xbox Live, as you compete more or less constantly against hundreds and thousands of players online, all of them living and racing on the same island as you, where a simple flash of the headlights is all it takes to flag another player into a race.
Mere hours ago we were thrown headfirst into a 24 man round of Enemy Territory: Quake Wars... and we're still reeling from the experience. Our initial fear that Quake Wars would feel sparse and under populated, especially next to the insaneness of 64-player Battlefield 2, have been utterly blown
It seems to be a rite of passage that every cartoon-y, platform-y game character must eventually star in a kart racing game. This summer, one of the earliest arcade stars - Pac-Man, one of few modern game characters who can remember when Mario was a rookie - gets his turn behind the wheel.
He's not alone - there are at least 15 characters in all, including the fire-breathing dragon Fygar from Namco's arcade classic Dig-Dug and a certain roll-headed prince from a more modern hit, Katamari
After leaving PS2, Gizmondo and Xbox versions in its wake, BattleStations: Midway has again surfaced as an Xbox 360- and PC-only mixture of strategy and shooting.
After finding the safe harbor of Eidos from the scuttled SCi, BattleStations: Midway has returned to allow you to fight the epic aerial and naval World War II battles from the opening of the war in the Pacific at Pearl Harbor, through the Philippines and into the campaign's turning point at the island of
After Monday's news that an expansion pack for Vivendi's supernatural shooter FEAR is in the works, we've managed to nab a handful of the first screenshots of Extraction Point, which will be released for PC this autumn.
Extraction Point picks up the action where the original game left off with the First Encounter Assault Recon team returning to battle against an invasion of demons in a devastated
