You’re thinking about trying out Dynasty Warriors: Gundam 2, but you don’t know the Principality of Zeon from the Zanscare Empire? Yeah, we feel you. Don’t worry, though, we’ve taken the characters form Gundam 2 and condensed decades of history into easy-to-read blurbs that contain every little drop and morsel of Gundam Knowledge you’ll ever need to know.
On a dark and stormy night, you stare at a blank TV screen as the clock strikes 12:00. You were told that the Midnight Channel will appear before you, even though your set isn't on, and on the screen your soul mate will appear. A girl then materializes; you can't tell who it is, but she seems to be in pain. Then the TV starts trying to draw you in; after you fight the television’s pull and drag yourself out, the set is blank again.
We’ve got a confession to make that goes against most critical response: we quite liked Need for Speed: ProStreet (at least on consoles). It was a competent and relatively accurate recreation of organized competitive racing events. Unfortunately, what ProStreet did at the same time was completely remove the essence of what made a Need for Speed game, leaving a dry approach to simulation in its place.
Los Angeles may be a town known for the highest excesses of rock n’ roll debauchery (with legendarily wayward rock acts such as Mötley Crüe and Guns N’ Roses synonymous with the city) but Activision’s headquarters – a dull grey box located in sleepy Santa Monica – is hardly the most thrilling place in the world to get our hands on with Guitar Hero World Tour for the first time.
Dokapon Kingdom seems like one of Dr. Frankenstein's experiments at first - at its heart it’s a traditional, turn-based RPG, but its exterior looks more like a board game style party game. The two genres couldn't be further apart, but put them together and you get a highly competitive multiplayer experience in the guise of a party game, but with the deep structure of an RPG.
The goal of Dokapon is simple: whoever earns
We’re going to party like it’s 1984. With Guitar Hero World Tour, the latest all-singing, all finger-tapping edition of the Guitar Hero franchise aims to deliver the party vibe. This year’s game is about the social experience of joining together to rock… so let’s jump! Why the Van Halen references? Because they’re just one of the new bands confirmed as exclusive to Guitar Hero World Tour, others include
The summer Olympics are coming up. Bet you didn’t know that, huh? It’s cool - ‘cause Agetec’s got you covered by spiking Women’s Volleyball Championship into your face this August on the PS2. Featuring a slew of easily digestible gameplay modes and Olympic teams, WVC is poised to be a viable alternative to the big name franchise sport sims (read: Madden) hitting late summer.
We’re mindful of overstating this - regular readers might be aware of previous false dawns for FIFA on PS2 - but maybe, just maybe, this is the year FIFA emerges as a legitimate alternative to Pro Evo, not only for casual fans, but hardcore gamers, too. Truth is, the process has already started. We’re at EA’s offices in Vancouver, Canada, ready for our FIFA 09 hands-on. Before play, however, we’re given a presentation
For years now, the "dancing" genre has been dominated by Dance Dance Revolution and its many knockoffs, all of which require players to hop around, rhythmically stomping along to music while a dull cascade of arrows floats by. But it wasn't always that way, and B-Boy - a breakdance sim released nearly two years ago in Europe and only now headed for a US release - is a throwback to a time when dance games were more about rhythm than legwork. It aims to do for breakdancing what Tony Hawk's Pro Skater did for skateboarding: make it accessible to people with zero fitness or leg coordination.
