With the general “music game fatigue” going on with gamers, approaching from a different angle is a dev’s best bet. Enter JAM Live Music Arcade, the XBLA/PSN title that reduces the band from five members to one…
Thanks to Daniel Craig's brutal, fists-first reappraisal of everyone's favorite MI6 agent in Casino Royale, 007 is back in a big way. Guys love him, critics love him, even rogue banker Le Chiffre seemed to like him... while torturing his nutsack with a leather mace. But, after forking out a rumored $70 million for the rights to the license (to kill), it's fair to say that Activision probably love him more than most.
Well, at that price they have
Five minutes into this prequel to the forthcoming sci-fi flick and we feel like we’re in one of the year’s most generic games. As we step off our transport into the alien planet Pandora, all the elements are in place for a generic third-person shooter. Main character who's a stoic military type with a crew cut: check. NPCs we have to seek out for missions: Oh yeah. A 40 foot monster that looks like a mad scientist has forced a hammerhead
Time to party like it's (the year after) 1999, as Dreamcast classic Jet Set Radio is coming to XBLA, PSN and PC this summer. We're so excited, we could burst. Better still, we've played it and didn't burst, which is lucky for you as you get to hear what we thought. But there's something you should know about the conversion...
Jimmie Johnson is a superstar NASCAR driver – he's the only person to ever win five consecutive Sprint Cup championships, and he's considered hands-down to be the greatest NASCAR driver of the past decade. The highest racing pedigree in the world doesn't automatically mean a game with his name on it will meet the same quality standards he's set for his own career, but from what we've seen so far, Anything with an Engine's NASCAR-meets-Mario-Kart approach looks promising...
Despite the two wheels, the engine and the stopwatch, Joe Danger isn’t really a racing game. It’s been drawn with ultra crayons that make colours three shades too bright to look at, and every noise is a ‘pling’. We’re on to you, Joe. You’re a platform game in disguise...
What do LittleBigPlanet, bikes and Sonic and have in common?
Capcom’s been showing their old-school fans lots of love lately, bringing their best late-‘90s fighters to modern-day consoles on the cheap. Check out the latest addition to the revived roster: the undoubtedly wacky and weird JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure…
As the 2011
Rugby World Cup rages in New Zealand over the next two months – the
championship match takes place on October 23 – a similar battle is taking place
on consoles. Two games are vying for your time and money, attempting to
capitalize on the ever-growing popularity of rugby union competition. While
it’s not the “Officially Licensed Game” of the tournament, Johah Lomu Rugby
Challenge is arguably the more compelling of the two. Sporting more licensed
teams, leagues, and tournaments – and, oh yeah, one of the greatest players
ever – it’s got fans buzzing. Naturally, we jumped at the chance for a hands-on
Some games really dish out a kicking before you get any sort of pleasure from them, making you feel quite inadequate and full of self-loathing. (Thought you were good at games? Think again, you useless idiot.) So after countless hard nights of enduring your gamers ego getting beating after beating, it should be comforting to know that one driving game is on its way which will (metaphorically) wipe away the tears and haul you down the bar for a couple of pick-me-ups.
