Game sequels have it tougher than sports games and their annual updates. Every year a Madden will come out and well buy it so long as the rosters are correct. But a sequels gotta change with the times, or we cynical gamers will demand heads on pikes. The franchises listed here are in great need of some major tweaks or in some cases, an overhaul of the game design. Its tough love and we do it ‘cause we
It's happened a million times. An awesome game is shown to the public, frothing at the mouth occurs, we talk about it for a few days and then… it's gone. Where the hell do these games go? There's no need to panic. Put down your Armageddon survival kits. We've got you covered. Check out this handy guide to some heavily anticipated games and exhale slowly.

Despite a few recent screenshots this open-ended, free-roaming take on the World War 2 shooter has yet to
One of the benefits of having an exclusive deal in this crazy business-of-game should be not having to try that hard. Apparently no one told 2K Sports, because the way they've been cramming their MLB games with fistfuls of features could find the casual slugger pressed to experience them all. So, did you think 2K7 would have less going for it? All of the bells and whistles from 2K6 are present and accounted for. And everything that wasn't in full working order last season has been overhauled
Yeah, we know: you dropped unholy coin on a new PS3, but you can only play so much Resistance before you start lusting over your buddy's 360 or Wii. Be patient, grasshopper - 2007 will make your purchase worthwile. Here's proof:

The latest chapter in the series is a dizzying mess of questions and expectations. The OctoCam camouflage suit - enabling players to blend in with the colour and texture of the background -
Swap TVs or select the wrong video output and you can be left staring at a blank screen with no way of telling how to switch it back. Not a great situation to be
Videogame makers have been ripping off John Woo for years. A longtime master of Hong Kong action films, the accomplished director's distinct style has been imitated in dozens of games. And Midway is helping Woo "take it back" with Stranglehold. The spiritual successor to the 1992 film Hard Boiled (directed by Woo and starring Chow Yun-Fat), Stranglehold is an attempt to faithfully recreate Woo's style in an interactive medium. The brief portions of the game we were able to play left us
How many different villains have tried to take us down over the course of video game history? A million? It's probably far more, actually. Every one of which was ready to blast holes through our chests, pummel us 'til we drooled, or maybe just gnaw our torsos off. Bastards.
But how many have there been whom we could literally stomach? Far fewer. Sure, Pac-Man can choke down almost anything after eating one of his big, flashing drug cakes, but those ghosts don't have any protein at all. Let's
If you like your science fiction kitschy, you've come to the wrong place. And if you like your alien invasions to involve tin-plated saucers, ray guns and adorable egg-headed extraterrestrials, BlackSite: Area 51 is not the game for you.
The aliens here are big, mean and freaky. Seriously, disturbingly freaky. Even after getting hands-on time with the upcoming first person shooter, we're nowhere close to figuring them out. We encountered the first tearing off a car's door, reaching inside with
Coming off of the massive success of Gears of War, Unreal Tournament 3 - the latest game from Gears developer Epic Games - seems even more exciting. The series has always been one of the most entertaining online first person shooter series, and it's built for competition, as the name suggests. Finally, the leading consoles will be getting the exact same game PC gamers are - it's coming to the PS3 and 360 this time around. All in all, it's a great time for the series.

After the final indignity of 2002s Turok: Evolution, we thought wed seen the last of Turok the dinosaur hunter, but true heroes never die. Thanks to publisher Buena Vista - the Brave is back!
Yet far from the stereotypical American Indian we know and (used to) love, this makeover sees Joseph Turok reinvented as a former Black Ops commando working with Special Forces to liquidate a war criminal on a genetically-altered
