The sequel to the crash-happy racer FlatOut will careen into stores next month, and unlike the original - which was notable mainly for sending your driver flying through the windshield at the drop of a hat - FlatOut 2 looks to have plenty to help it stand out.
For starters, the game looks beautiful. Sure, it starts you off racing junkers on dirt tracks, but there's a lot of detail packed into everything you see. Your car, for instance, sports nice-looking light reflections when it's pristine,
Avatar: The Last Airbender is one of the coolest cartoons on Nickelodeon these days. A far cry from the misshapen adventures of the Rugrats, it blends action and magic into a tasty blend of kick-ass Asian action. Just as a show like this can bridge the gap between kids and adults, the game THQ is cooking up brings the series' slick cartoon visuals together with the kind of action RPG gameplay mature gamers have come to love. Think X-Men Legends, and you're getting there.
Avatar's world is
With World Tour Golf, developer Gusto Games wants to create a game that real golfers would want to play - something they intend to do by taking a uniquely realistic approach to the game.
Eschewing the simple, arcade-style swinging of Tiger Woods PGA Tour and other similar series, World Tour enables players to control the power and trajectory of their shots directly. This system, called "Pro Stroke," allows players to set up their swing by making minute adjustments to their golfer's stance, the
With its flaming bad guys and slo-mo headshots, Urban Chaos has become a favorite of ours as an absurdist humor goldmine. With cheats, it's even sillier than you can imagine... fortunately, you're at GamesRadar, so you don't have to imagine anything (unless you really want to). We've stitched up six different cheats into a mash-up video of hilarious proportions, just click the movies tab above to drench yourself in awesomeness. Combining headless mode, disco lights, the mini-gun, incendiary
Just Cause is shaping up to be something beyond incredible. When were mighty impressed when we saw it at E3 and now, after savoring another hands-on with the game, we're still smitten. And it's not just the eye-meltingly gorgeous graphics or the indulgently expansive play area that has us quivering at the knees - when you play Just Cause it's like a mushroom cloud-laying fun bomb going off in your face.
If you're unfamiliar with the set-up, here's a quick rundown: you play CIA agent Rico

EA's heroic action game, Superman Returns, is ready to launch on 26 June for PS2, Xbox 360, Xbox, PSP and DS. So like some magical Kryptonite-wrought typewriter, we got personal with the game to drain the Man of Steel's essence and put it into words.
Clark Kent's home, Metropolis, is faithfully reproduced - and ready to be bombed, broken, burnt and torn to pieces if you fail in your super-saving duties. The whole city is there to stretch your muscle in, but thanks to
As we played through Hitman: Blood Money, we couldn't help but be captivated by both the moody environment and the twisted sense of humor. In fact, we were so tickled by Agent 47's various methods of madness that we shot a couple of our favorites on our uber high-tech video capture stations and stitched 'em together for you in a feature we've titled "Hitman: Blood Money's Top

With so many superhero games crowding the aisles, Superman has a fight on his hands to stand out from the lycra-clad crowd. Still, if the Man of Steel can't overcome the odds, who can?
We sat down with Chris Gray, executive producer at EA Tiburon - the guys behind GoldenEye: Rogue Agent, but we won't hold that against them - to discover how Superman Returns is flexing Clark Kent's hidden
Imagine a Tony Hawk-style, stunt-focused game with dirt bikes instead of skateboards, and you'll have a pretty good idea of what to expect from Crusty Demons. You'll tear around small, freely explorable levels on the back of a roaring, wheeled gas can, taking on stunt challenges from random weirdos in an effort to make it to the next level. Oh, and you'll get hurt. A lot.
While it's ostensibly about stunts, the main draw of what we've played of Crusty Demons is in watching our riders get
Here's a little secret for you: we, the editors of GamesRadar, love Jaws Unleashed. Not because it's a particularly well-designed game, which it isn't. No, we love it because of its rich potential for gruesome aquatic stupidity. We love it because it's so over-the-top that what would otherwise be cruel becomes hilarious. We love it because a shark fires missiles. And we've decided to share some of our favorite moments with you in two spankin' new videos.
The first video, titled "Jumping the
