Suddenly management games are sexy. Dressed to impress in glorious 3D, this Eygptian beauty is making us fall in love all over again. Especially as our latest squeeze feels like a reunion with an old flame. Developer Tilted Mill is built from the ashes of the Impression Games team, and Immortal Cities: Children of the Nile inevitably doffs its dusty pith helmet to their seminal empire-builder, Pharaoh. What's more, the move to 3D accommodation has retained the solid foundations that made the
Maybe if Eidos's merchandising wallahs had any imagination then we'd have strolled out of their recent Imperial Glory preview event weighed down with bottles of Napoleon brandy and pairs of logo-emblazoned wellies rather than predictable (but appreciated) armfuls of T-shirts, pens and office furniture (Please return the chairs - Legal Ed). IG, you see, is a strategy game that the Little Corporal and the Iron Duke would have loved, had their steam-powered, mahogany-cased Georgian PCs had the
We check out Paradox's newly announced RTS and talk with the developers about the ins and outs of maniacal dungeon creation...
We take a look at the upcoming action RPG and walk through the first few missions. Check out our preview right here...
There's no movie sequel to the The Incredibles on its way, but that hasn't stopped THQ from making up their own. With a plotline that follows on from the original film, Rise of the Underminer begins right where the film ends, where the Underminer is threatening to wreak havoc on the residents of Metroville. You have to battle against him, travelling through the city and the underground maze beneath it. You play as Mr Incredible or Frozone, who each have their unique skills. Mr Incredible uses
Being the bad guy is always fun - and that's the biggest pull for Infernal, a third-person shooter being readied for release in Europe this winter. We think this game has a good chance of crossing the pond, so we wanted to share our early hands-on impressions.
Your character, formerly a good guy, has made a pact with the Lord of Darkness and is using his ill-gained powers to take on... well, pretty much everybody. The early version we played is almost complete and the graphics certainly look
We had mixed feelings about third-person actioner Infernal' s somewhat derivative plot in our last preview. You'll be taking control of Ryan Lennox - a former intelligence agent of God's army who has switched sides to do the devil's dirty work - as heaven and hell clash for world domination. But after getting in some play time with the latest preview build of Infernal, we have to admit that in terms of graphics, this game looks
That whole “good versus evil” battle youre used to waging is so overdone. Infernal, a soon-to-be-released shooter from Eidos, is set to turn your gaming morality on its ear. No less than Satan himself commands you, a fallen angel, to eliminate Heavens soldiers in their quest to save the world from your boss. Sounds different? Just be sure not to mention the plot to your local clergy, lest your eternal soul be excommunicated once and for
Having played (and dominated) a round of Infinite Crisis, Turbine's upcoming DC Comics-themed MOBA, here are our impressions...
If you don’t know your superheroes, you might have glanced at Iron Man and had him down as a dull robot-faced crime fighter. He’s actually one of Marvel’s coolest characters - a billionaire playboy genius with a ’70s ‘stache, an eye for the ladies and a heart of actual steel. And that’s before Tony Stark puts on his self-designed flying armour and becomes the Invincible Iron Man. Beat that Peter Parker
