The guy who looks like Spider-Man dipped in tar, packing a handheld tank is the special-ops type you play in Crysis. You are tasked with saving the world from aggressive extra-terrestrials, who've ploughed a pretty big asteroid into a Pacific island's countryside.
Your character is dispatched to infiltrate the area, now sealed off by fast-arriving North Korean forces, to find out what exactly put a dent in the Earth's surface, and the first part of the game sees you traipsing through dense

When Sony recently announced its PS3 launch plans for Europe we admit that we were dubious when it promised that over 30 games would be available for the system in what it carefully called the 'launch period'. What was Sony's definition of 'launch period' - a day, a week, a year...?
It turns out that we had no need to fret - Sony's head of UK PR, David Wilson, has confirmed to GamesRadar that 'launch period' does indeed mean day one: "It is our aspiration that all of

Ultra-realistic tactical shooters may have taken center-stage in recent years, but Unreal Tournament 3 proves there's still demand for brutal, flag snatching deathmatch amongst PC gamers, and with Epic Games' strengthened investment in console versions - no doubt fuelled by a certain 360 shooter that recently found success - rocket-flinging frag fests may become king of the couch again as well.
Last week we sat down with UT3 producer and all-round good guy Jeff Morris to chat-up the
The highly-anticipated PlayStation 3 sequel to Guerilla Game's Killzone is to be officially unveiled at next month's Game Developer's Confrence.
Well placed US sources have revealed to us that the flagship Sony shooter will be shown in full glory at the San Francisco event, perhaps even in the form of a playable demo.
As well as its high price point, the PS3 (like most consoles) has faced criticism for a lack of really high profile, compelling games which make it a "must buy" and the big
It's been nearly a year since talk of a sequel to Monolith's FPS F.E.A.R., but today it's been reaffirmed that a follow-up to the horror-shooter is planned.
In a press release from Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment announcing that Monolith CEO Samantha Ryan has also now assumed the role of Senior Vice President, Development & Production at WBIE, it's mentioned that the company's "current production slate" includes "the sequel to F.E.A.R."

Get the hankies ready folks - Half-Life 2: Episode Two has been delayed. Again.
We were expecting it in summer - a delay from a previously announced early 2007 date - but it's now due this winter.
News of the new release date was sneaked in at the bottom of a press release announcing details on the Orange Box and Black Box versions of Half-Life 2: Episode Two that'll be released to retail.
HL2 Black Box is for PC and includes Half-Life 2: Episode Two, Portal and Team Fortress 2, while the

HMV will no longer require that customers wanting to pre-order a PS3 purchase a PSP at the same time, GamesRadar has learned. The PS3-plus-PSP bundle was previously the only pre-order option made available through HMV's online store, and came to a total cost of nearly £700.
"We are aware of the mixed reaction to the PS3/PSP bundle," Gennaro Castaldo, head of Press and PR for HMV, told us, explaining that HMV is "now in a position to revise the online offer"
Is Sony going to use shooter Killzone PS3 to steal some of Microsoft's Halo 3 multiplayer beta thunder this spring?
Well, that's what a rumor on 1UP.com is suggesting, saying that a demo of the PS3 sequel that was last in the public eye at E3 2005 will actually appear before the Halo 3 beta begins.
It's additionally rumored that Killzone PS3 is well into development - so far in fact that the online section of the game has existed in playable form for nearly a year. Coupled with the demo
Sonic Team boss and director of Sonic and the Secret Rings, Yogiro Ogawa, cites the PS3 as "very expensive," in a recent interview with CVG.
When asked if he thought the features the PS3 offer are worth the hefty price tag, Ogawa replied: "Now I think that if Sony had sold the PS3 alongside the Vaio brand, maybe like calling it the 'Vaio PS3' or something like that, it may have been more appealing to the right people.
"I think that the way in which Sony has chosen to approach the PS3 could
