Chances are pretty good that you didn't play the original Thrillville last year... but a whole bunch of kids sure did. So many went for the ride, in fact, that the amusement park simulator is getting a sequel this October. Thrillville: Off the Rails embraces its youth appeal by pushing everything to be bigger, wilder, sillier, friendlier and, of course, barfier.
As theme park tycoon Mortimer's trusted niece or nephew, you still hold the dream job of building, designing and test riding every
For many seasons, Tiger Woods PGA Tour has relied on an arcade-like feel that gave any player with functional thumbs a -15 handicap. Good news though - from what we saw at Electronic Arts' Summer Showcase, Tiger has shed his quirky strokes and come out swinging the hammer with a more simulation-based method of play. The control scheme has been simplified, taking what worked in the past and applying more realistic effects to make the whole experience come alive.
In 07, the entire swing runs off
Confidence. On Sundays, on the 18th green, staring down a birdie putt for the win, Tiger Woods has it. Sergio Garcia? Not so much.
After Garcia missed a putt for the win at the 2007 British Open, he lost the ensuing playoff to Irishman Padraig Harrington, and left any confidence he had in a deep bunker somewhere on the back nine at Carnoustie. As confidence plays such an important role in the game of golf, it's about time EA included it in its upcoming Tiger Woods PGA Tour game. And so it
(9.4MB, MOV)A quick glance at the screenshots might lead you to one of three conclusions: a) TimeSplitters Future Perfect looks exactly the same as the last one, b) No, really, it looks a lot like the last one, and c) It'll still be quite good. And you'd be right on all three counts, except c) because TimeSplitters Future Perfect won't be quite good. It'll be brilliant. Having played it extensively at EA's swishy San Francisco HQ, we can pay Free Radical's adroitly amplified FPS no higher
If this preview merely discussed the new TimeSplitters' Mapmaker it would fill you with joy, excitement and yearning. PC gamers have long been able to intensify their appreciation of a given game with editing tools and suites, but while a few console games have provided map editors there's been nothing to rival Future Perfect's suite of design tools. It's incredible.Of course, this is Free Radical's third version, but it now appears to be the real deal. Memory-saving fixes enable users to build
"Monkeys will be reappearing." That breaking news comes straight from the mouth of Free Radical's David Doak, who spotters may know better as the character Dr Doak from Nintendo 64 classic GoldenEye. Doak may not be making a cameo appearance in TimeSplitters: Future Perfect, but the return of gun-wielding chimps is just what the doctor ordered, and will be greeted with jubilation by fans of the series. Now in the hands of EA, and following the current trend away from the numbers, Future Perfect
The Turtles are back, but Vanilla Ice isn't. That's probably for the best, to be honest. Anyway, to complement the new CGI-heavy Turtles film that's out this year, Ubisoft is resurrecting the pizza-eating dudes.
Apparently the new film is a bit darker and edgier than previous Turtles fare (harking back to the original comics and role-playing game) and the game will reflect that. While we've yet to see just how "dark" and "edgy" this'll be, the way the game plays seems, so far, to be a little
You’d be forgiven for taking one look at TNA Impact and thinking, “It’s wrestling. How different could it be from any other wrestling game?” After all, it is wrestling, and it is very similar in many ways to other grappling games - specifically THQ’s long-running WWE franchises. However, after spending some time with the latest version of the game in our hands, we discovered quite a bit more difference
Oct 16, 2007
Lets face it, the WWE is essentially the evil empire of wrestling. Mr. McMahon and his genetic superfreaks will always stand atop the heap of sports entertainment destroying all comers like they did WCW and ECW. With an increasingly stale product and THQs SmackDown! franchise delivering the same thing year in and out, wrasslin fans need a savior. Start bracing for Impact - literally - because Midway is developing TNA Impact for the PS2, PS3, Xbox 360 and Wii, based off the
Ever dream of having an army of small metallic buddies at your command? Chances are that you weren't imagining these minions to be cute, but that's exactly the angle that Tokobot Plus works. Tokobot Plus expands on its previous PSP incarnation as it makes the journey to the PS2 by bolting on new levels, more action and simpler controls. With a pile of babybots to manipulate, you jog the main character Bolt through some platforming levels in search of
