Call of Duty has always been an exhilerating series, but Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare is intense like you wouldn't believe. In fact, it's so intense that Infinity Ward want to "caution the weak gamers out there not to soil yourself when you see this game". Sheesh.
Actually, it's Infinity Ward's long term military adviser doing the cautioning. And he should know, having served in the US Army for more than two decades. Though he's now retired, so much less likely to kill you to

The much anticipated Crysis single-player demo was released for download Friday night, and naturally we had to have a go at it. Most of us (PC editor excluded) lack any significant horsepower under our desks, so its DX9 and low settings or nothing. To our delight, our mediocre systems are at least capable of rendering Crysis intricate jungle setting well enough to play.
Our chugging machines, however, cant produce anything akin to the quality of the low setting DX9 screen

Crysis dev Crytek has revealed that a success for the super-hyped shooter on PC would urge it to seriously consider delivering console versions of the title.
"...first we want to see how the game is received, publicly and critically... We believe it will be received at least as strong as Far Cry. I hope personally a 5% average increase... That would give us an argument to [say], 'OK, let's see how we can bring Crysis to consoles,'" Crytek boss Cevat Yerli has told Game Informer in

Slap your eyeballs into action for four new screenshots from Condemned 2: Bloodshot, which come from the PS3 version of the game. We're not exactly blown away by the shots nor feeling shivers of joy flowing down our collective spines, but make up your own mind.
In the sequel - which is also in development for Xbox 360 - you jump back into the shoes of Ethan Thomas, former Serial Crimes Unit investigator who's been called back to duty to track down his missing partner and to

Stop thinking about Halo 3 for 60 seconds because this trailer of another FPS (yes, they do still exist) is brilliant.
Clive Barker's Jericho almost looks like a new-age Doom - giant blood-covered demons appear and you pump them with bullets and explosives until they eventually fall.
It's without a doubt one of the most graphically impressive games of the current generation and incredibly absorbing. See below.

A playable demo of Clive Barker's Jericho will be arriving for Xbox 360, PS3 and PC this Thursday, Codemasters has confirmed to CVG.
