Youre in the Army now, you hear? Its time to blow stuff up and YOU WILL ENJOY IT! Go anywhere near the offices of Canadian-based coders Relic, and thats all youre likely to hear, as they put the finishing touches on their impressive WW2 shooter, The Outfit.
This is a war game, yes, but an accurate representation of WW2 this most certainly isnt. This is the Jerry Bruckheimer version, the nitro-fed turbo edition, the most intensely exciting strategic frag-fest youll ever see. Honest.
Why don't Top Guns get any love? Crimson Skies and Secret Weapons Over Normandy were a blast, and we demand more. Ubisoft's WWII era flight opera Blazing Angels is primed to deliver the kind of experience that has been sadly lacking on the consoles for the last year.
Blazing Angels is all about the squad. Players can employ different pilots for different specialized jobs during missions, giving commands to wingmen with a flick of the d-pad. Your squadron divebombs and snap-turns its way
Oh Lara Croft ... so hot, so brilliant, so starring in awful games for so long. The original Tomb Raider was an opus of Indiana Jones-style adventuring, puzzle-solving, dual-pistol wielding, and tank-top-staring that put Ms. Croft and the PlayStation on the map. But after Tomb Raider III, things got rough for our favorite feminine plaything. Cliches began to snake in, the baddies began to smack of caricature, while attempts at innovation had the distinct reek of gimmick. The nadir came with
Ever since Nightcrawler teleported his way through the White House, drop-kicking and hip-tossing countless armed guards along the way in X2, he's been the one X-Man everyone's wanted to control. And while the past X-Men movie games have been a bland sort, Nightcrawler's inclusion may make the third film's tie-in action game a must-play.
For those not in the comic book loop, Nightcrawler's a blue-furred, teleporting, acrobatic mutant who can literally be in two places at once. Guiding him
“I've been trying to develop a sequel to Hard Boiled, but didn't know how,” said action movie helmer John Woo in a video interview shown at Midway's Pulse media event in late February. Looks like he found one: John Woo Presents Stranglehold, is an upcoming action/adventure game that reunites Woo with his frequent star Chow Yun-Fat in a return to the world of Inspector Tequila.
Better to call it a “spiritual sequel,” though; the game won't pick up where the film left
There goes our dignity. Thanks to our brand new, God-sized TV, people as far as half a mile away were looking over and tutting indignantly as we helped two barely-clothed, huge-norked girls tie themselves in sweaty, fleshy femiknots.
But - honestly - Rumble Roses XX is more than just a polygon Playboy. Coded up with the help of Yuke's, the team behind almost all the WWE games, it's a righteous rassler in its own right.
Uncomplicated stuff, sure - just a couple of buttons unlock the 20 girls'
Every day, some gat-toting punk game blasts its way across your console, frontin' like it's the next Grand Theft Auto... unless you're an Xbox 360 owner, in which case you're still thugless. Veteran developer Volition aims to change this with Saint's Row. On one hand, as yet another would be heir to the Grand Theft Auto empire, this ambitious prince may discover too late that it'll take more than mimicry to dethrone the reigning king. On the other hand, this is indeed one ambitious prince ...
Ordinarily, if a game is called "a shiny mess," that would seem like a bad thing...but in the case of Full Auto, that's exactly what we're looking for. For a game that incorporates racing, explosives and flashy car models, Full Auto oversteps its bounds by adding even more features to this list. Beautifully rendered graphics immediately demand your attention - particularly on those oh-so-shiny pavement-eaters - but developer Psuedo Interactive has packed in a tremendous variety of surprising
The word "visceral" describes things that impact the soft internals of a body (particularly those of the stomach or ‘abdomen to get all sciencey on you) and there's a good reason why it frequently describes boxing. Graphics or physics alone won't get the job done; a good boxing game has to make you feel like you're about to get
If movies and games have taught us nothing else in the last decade, we know one thing for sure: zombies are awesome. Capcom delivers the zombies like no other, so it comes as no surprise that one of Capcom's first titles out of the gate for the 360 is (gasp!) a survival horror zombie game. And why not? After the success of the Resident Evil, we're just begging for
