The last outing for Marvel's fab four, published by Activision, not 2K Games, was a mediocre affair with predictable button-bashing action that barely tested your skills. Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer benefits from PS3's bolder, crisper graphics, while the gameplay's been enhanced to test your wit as well as your rapid-finger
Harvest Moons tend to come in two distinct styles: toil-all-your-working-days, salty sweat flavor; and a milder get-to-know-your-neighbors with moderate farming variety - as seen in the narrative of GameCubes A Wonderful Life. The Wii-bound Harvest Moon falls into the second category, revealing a tale of natural woe that requires a mix of intensive agriculture and community action to
A year ago everyone was unscrewing their heads and proclaiming their undying love for Nintendo's handheld hit, Brain Age. A few months later, in June '06, the second wave of mind-muscling software came in the form of Big Brain Academy, a series a quirky minigames that focused more on fun than tracking actual performance as Brain Age did.
In June 2007, one year after the DS game hit, Big Brain Academy will return with another round of logic puzzles, this time on the Wii. If you spent any time
Welcome to the nineteenth installment of GamesRadar's weekly feature, PokémonRadar.
Some Pokemon news out of the Game Developer's Conference, this week in San Francisco. First up, Pokemon Battle Revolution has a US release date of June 25th, 2007.
Second up, Pocchama's (a.k.a. Piplup in the U.S.) final evolution, Enperuto, has a new name, too - Empoleon. With so many new English names surfacing these days, we've decided to update our format to include both the Japanese and English
Up until a few weeks ago, Mario's sorta-2D adventure was confined to the GameCube. It kinda made sense, seeing as it's a pretty simple, side-scrolling game like the classic days of old. But now, Super Paper Mario is a Wii-only title, infused with a few tilty-shaky ideas and a much better shot at becoming a successful release. After a quick run through of level 2-2, we're convinced you're gonna flip over this game. It's that fun. A pristine blend of classic gaming and that surreal paper-world
Final Fantasy is one of the most enduringly popular games in the history of video gaming. 2006's Final Fantasy XII, the last PlayStation 2 entry in the series, set a record for most copies shipped to retail on release. The series has struck a chord with fans the world over, by providing engrossing gameplay against a backdrop of astounding drama - for over 20 years.
But which game in the series is the ultimate? Which entry has the best main character, the best villain, the best music or the
As we near the end of our weeklong countdown, it's time to look at one of the biggest parts of any Final Fantasy - the music. Each game in the series features an astonishing number of quality tracks, from burning guitar rock, to tear-jerking ballad, to rave-friendly electronica. There's probably no other game series in the world that's had as many full-blown concerts in its honor, be they garage bands cranking out angsty riffs or a legitimate orchestra performing for a crowd of thousands. But
We all wish that Acme was real. So that just as a bully would pull back his fist, we could pull a lever and send an anvil crashing directly on to his head. Instead well have to make do with this Tunes-based bash-a-thon - a merging of brothers Warner and Smash, if you
Being a serious fan means one thing: Dressing like a fool and parading around in public. To make sure your fellow cosplayers are laughing with you and not at you, heed our advice with our do's and don'ts to dressing like a Star Wars character.
Try to find someone in the Star Wars universe that you actually look like. If you don't look like anyone, be Darth Vader and wear a helmet. Let this guy below with the specs and the goatee act as a warning. He thinks: I look like Anakin. We think:
With each new Final Fantasy, a tweaked battle system is revealed. Here, we consider how much each affected the series' gameplay as a whole. When most people think RPG, they think turn-based menu surfing. Final Fantasy IV finally got it right - but later games added on to it. We don't stop there - we also take into account the supporting gameplay systems that directly affect your fighting style.
5. Final Fantasy VII
The game that brought RPGs to the masses did so with a very clever evolution
