Activision unveiled the upcoming Transformer movie tie-in earlier this week in London to what we believe was a very average reception. We're huge fans of the brand and think the movie is shaping up to deliver the goods. We have a few reservations about the game though.
We said, "Although the game's still in development, it lacked the detail and polish we've come to expect from 360 games. The environment looked bland and there was a distinct lack of people and traffic."
So you've heard all about the game from the developer's point of view, but what's it actually like? We were given an exclusive walkthrough of the new Egypt level at Eidos' London office and came away with an excited feeling. Why excited? Well, everything we liked about Tomb Raider Legend is still there. The tight controls, the lush graphics and the brilliant physics are all in place. But now it's been given more of the things that made Tomb Raider so unique in the first place. And we didn't see
Fresh out of the sewer, mutated for your viewing enjoyment, comes a brand stinkin' new video that showcases your favorite subterranean superheroes in action. There's a wide variety of action to be seen here, from single turtle throwdowns to frantic character-swapping melees, and it happens all over the place, from the deep in the sewers to the top of giant parade floats. Mayhem galore.
From the looks of things, these Turtles have been studying tapes of the Prince and Kratos in action - two
Welcome to Part 3 of our week-long Tomb Raider: Anniversary blowout. Today, we conclude our interview with game designer Jason Botta as he talks about the new Egypt level and the game's special bonus features.
How has Egypt changed in comparison to the original game?
The Egypt level is actually very, very similar to the original in the puzzles, the scope and the layout of things. Our approach to all of the levels was to go back, play look through and look at all of the areas from the original
Tomb Raider: Anniversary is shaping up to be everything fans of the series could hope for - and we've been given exclusive access to it at Eidos' London offices. That means we've got a whole week of Tomb Raider goodies for you to drool over, including the first look at the newly redesigned Egypt level and exclusive screens and concept art, none of which you'll find first anywhere else.
And, to kick things off, we've got an exclusive interview with Jason Botta, game designer at Crystal Dynamics
Juárez Mayor Héctor Murguía has condemned Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter 2 which is set in El Paso and Juárez, reports the El Paso Times.
Ubisoft's tactical shooter launched last Thursday for Xbox 360, which features fictional battles between the US Ghosts and Mexican rebels. Keyword there being "fictional." But the Mayor of Juárez (one of the locations featured in the game) isn't

The first in-game screen of Transformers: The Game has morphed into view, giving us a tantalizing enigma to ponder while we wait for the game and movie to arrive. The single in-game screenshot shows Bumblebee towering above trees and a factory and... a person? We've blown up the image so you can decide for yourself, but we reckon it looks like a lady running away from the towering beast.
Of course, stomping people may not be a feature of this family-friendly game, but we'd like to think it
Alright so there's no screenshots to offer but Valve has given us two pieces of fresh concept art from Team Fortress 2, which is enough to keep us quiet until we get up close and personal with the game at GDC next week.
In case you're wondering, the two pieces of art show the different levels of the sentry gun, which for you TF rookies out there is constructed by the wrench-wielding engineer
Point your eyes at these new photos of Transformer characters Optimus Prime and Bumblebee, two classic heroes revamped for the new generation Transformers movie - and the recently revealed game, of course.
These images show the toy figures made for both Autobot characters, giving us a good idea of how Michael Bay's - director of the all-live-action Transformers movie - redesigned robots in disguise will look in the Xbox 360, PS3 and PC videogame released this
