Cast your eyes over San Vanelona - SKATEs fictional, open-world city that captures the best elements of San Francisco, Vancouver, Barcelona, the Hoover Dam and New Yorks financial district. An ultimate playground.
1) City district
NY and LAs real-life financial districts are packed with hand rails, smooth marble ledges, rolling banks and absurd skateable sculptures - plus high security.
Porches, miles of curb and lines of parked cars? Were thinking that this is where SKATE
Today we take a look at the different costumes Peter Parker masquerades in, as well as the foes hell be facing in Spider-Man 3. It seems as though “Black" is the new “Red,” cuz apparently that basic suit is old and busted. Say hello to the brand-new dark and mysterious Spidey; complete with extra angst. Hes gonna need all that anger when he faces his biggest adversaries yet; a rival photographer, his former best friend and the man that may have killed his uncle. Read on:
Forza Motorsport 2 is not as hardcore as it seems. The punishing ultra realism and mind-boggling attention to detail may appeal directly to hobbyists and elitists, but the developers are actually designing their game to be accessible to everyone. Car lovers, game lovers, experts, beginners - Forza Motorsport 2 wants to bring them all together.
Automobile fanatics will have plenty to play with, regardless of whether they're gamers or not. The number of vehicles accurately recreated in the
"Fable 2 will be a landmark game... We have the most beautiful environments... 10 to 20 times larger than the original's... Huge weapons... A spectacular magic system... It will make you feel things you've never felt before in a videogame."
Peter Molyneux is at it again. The last time he hyped a game this much, we all got pretty excited...only to be pretty disappointed when the final product didn't blow our minds. The original Fable is a perfectly good action-RPG, no mistake, but it's not the
Dark Sector looks special. The sinister third-person action game packs a moody atmosphere and the intriguing, power-absorbent, triple-bladed glaive puts a unique twist on the fighting and puzzles.
Despite the game having been in development since 2004, Digital Extremes has remained secretive with its progress - until now.
We sat down for a chat with product manager, Josh Austin, who told us all about the structure of his innovative new quest, and how he looks to music, film and, bizarrely,
Are you sitting down? Good. Oh, and its best that youre not eating anything prior, during and directly after reading our coverage of Clive Barkers Jericho, a squad-based shooter that is as creepy and disgusting as it is intriguing. Mr. Barker has already made waves with his fantastical and horrific writings and surely if youve played his previous game, Undying, then you know that the man can offer up quite a virtual scare. That all said, check out our in-depth preview of Jericho and our
There's one reason why Spider-Man 2 is the greatest superhero game ever made - the swinging mechanics that enabled you to swoop through the city like a... well, like Spider-Man. Which we guess is the whole point. Few moments in gaming can match the exhilaration of freefalling towards the ground before letting off a web and arcing gracefully back into air. Few games have ever recreated so perfectly a super-hero's powers and made you feel as though they were yours to command.
The world doesn't need two skateboarding games... because, arguably, it hasn't yet got one. Tony Hawk? The argument among hardcore skaters and disillusioned fans of Activision's franchise is that it stopped being a skateboarding game around THUG2, losing sight of the simple thrills of real skating and embracing Jackass culture to gloss over its insanely-complicated, obscenely video-gamey controls and swirl of baffling combos.
Hardcore Tony Hawk players casually toss out 100-trick combos,
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
Sadomasochistic cenobites, cannibalism, hooks in flesh, skin-stealing…“Weve got sights to show you,” grinned Pinhead in seminal horror flick Hellraiser - and didnt he just? However, Clive Barker himself has shown us so much more - in his books, his films, his soft toy range and in his games. Well, in Clive Barkers Undying anyway - the others havent been very good. But now hes back with Clive Barkers Jericho, a project hes steering all the way from conception - rather than
