“Guns don’t kill people, bullets do.” But do they have to? Not at all, and in fact, this is all the destructive power you’re going to get out of shooting bullets.
In all honesty, some games would be better off left on the whiteboard at the design meeting. Whether they're too ambitious, too expensive or simply too good to be true, we're frequently led to imagine great things only to have our expectations dashed when the game finally arrives. How could these games be so good on paper yet underwhelm so spectacularly? Let's take a look...
To clarify, this isn’t about dialog captions, which are also referred to as “subtitles.” This is about the wastes of ink which game publishers love printing after game names.

It's a huge month for warring gods, space marines, tomb raiders, and Pinkerton agents. See why you'll be spending most of March indoors in our rundown of this month's new releases...
In a new, semi-regular feature GamesRadar explores what happens when video games collide with, well, anything else... via the medium of Photoshop. From movies to mammals, children's TV to cheese - as long as there's a decent pun to be made we'll do it. In this second episode: Games vs Clothes.
The UK all-format sales chart has been lit up by Ashes Cricket 2009. The England team may have lost and now need to win the last test to salvage the series, but at least you can make sure that happens by playing the game.
