Game developer PopCap's works translate so well to Xbox Live Arcade, it's scary. Heavy Weapon is their latest in a series of 360 upgrades to their popular PC time-wasters. This arcade shooter - originally released in 2005 - is the sort of pick-up-and-play, highly addictive original content Microsoft's Live service needs much more
Hell Yeah! Wrath of the Dead Rabbit is a quirky and irreverent downloadable platformer that sets you in the depth of the Netherworld as you shred through enemy upon enemy. Is it a hell of a fun time? Our review will reveal all...
Granted, Hellboy is not a terribly sophisticated comic book character. His super powers are basically just that he's remarkably durable, kinda strong and has a stone hand he uses to punch things. Thus, even though his comics tend to have interesting characters and storylines (not to mention fantastic noir art), we didn't expect his games to be about riddles or gadgets or sorcerous cults or anything else that says "brainy" instead of

You've played Hexic. It's that quirky little puzzle game that came with your Xbox 360 (assuming your 360 came with a hard drive). And chances are you either love it, or hate. And if you hated it... well, then there's no chance you're gonna like Hexic 2. To say it's just more of the same would be an understatement.

When the man who created Tetris comes up with a new idea, it's worth hearing. When that idea turns out to be a puzzle game that rivals his claim to fame, well, that's worth even more. Ironic, then, that the incredibly valuable Hexic HD is yours
It's become passe to gripe about the glut of WWII shooters out there today, but after playing Activision's latest military-based FPS, we immediately quit our bitching. It turns out that Nazi-era guns, tanks, and steel are a welcome relief when compared to slugging it out 19th century-style. Who knew?

Developer Cauldron may have all the expertise of the History Channel backing them up, but is it any use when they clearly don't understand the evolution of their own medium? Historical accuracy notwithstanding, Battle for the Pacific stands as a laughable attempt to clone the formula of successful first-person shooters like Call of Duty.
The core problem with this game is that it betrays its own claim to realism. The History Channel moniker doesn't mean much when you're mowing
Agent 47's first game in years is brilliant in execution, and absolutely wonderful. Take a look to see why Hitman Absolution is one of the best games of the year...
Creeping quietly down the hall, the harsh fluorescent lighting gleams off your bald head. Your target walks a few paces ahead, unknowingly striding into certain doom. As you round the corner, you carefully unwind the fiber wire and prepare to throttle your quarry to death. You raise the deadly garrote, but before you can strike, you accidentally bump the back of your target's knee with your own, alerting him to your presence. He turns around and lets out a scream that alerts everyone within a
