Under a constant hail of putrified flesh gibs and congealed blood, Daniel Garner fends off an overwhelming horde of monstrous demons ... with a shotgun (among other blunt projectiles). Painkiller: Hell Wars slams you into a nightmarish world where you play as Daniel and attempt to claw your way out of Hell. Set in a strange sort of purgatory suffering from a plague of demonic beasts, Painkiller: Hell Wars hurls gore and zombie bits at an amazing pace.
This game is alarmingly fast, and the Xbox
It's no longer a secret that Digital Extreme's groundbreaking first-person shooter plans to do nothing less than grab you hard by the not-so-proverbial knackers and drag you into a simply unmatched world of stealth, intrigue and high-octane action that will leave you positively reeling.The legendary Unreal developers are backing up these words with actions; a couple of Hollywood's finest writers have been drafted in to make sure the plot is in the same league as the blistering FPS action, and
It's funny, but offhand, we can't think of many games with a 'flay' button. Slicing and mincing up enemies with wristblades, spears, shoulder-mounted lasers and sharpened Frisbees? To be honest, that's all a bit old hat - as are the Manhunt-style stealth executions. But jumping around with a squealing gangsta in one hand, looking for a convenient point to dangle his skinned corpse from? Well, that's why you're the Predator...Old mandible-chops has had mixed fortunes game-wise over the years,
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
Okay, you couch-bound, wannabe PGA pros - consider yourself called out. You may rock at the Tiger Woods golf games, but that doesn't mean you can swing a club in real life. The first shot in the money-where-your-mouth-is campaign was fired by Real World Golf, with its unique, gloves-with-strings controller. But the big gun might be ProStroke Golf, which uses the standard controller you already have to show Tiger a thing or two about "realism" - and may expose your weak skills along the
Maybe ideas spring fully-formed into developer's heads when their time has come. How else to explain why two incredibly similar games - this and Free Radical's Second Sight - have popped up at the same time? Or perhaps there's some industrial espionage going on. Whatever the reason, this time, it doesn't matter; while Second Sight, like TimeSplitters, is bound to be tremendous, Psi-Ops is looking equally as entertaining, continuing Midway's recent run of excellent games, last exemplified by The
It's taken a while (well, a few weeks, but we're impatient like that) and we've finally got our hands on it. The Punisher. Without a shadow of doubt the most surprising thing about the game is that it's violent. Exceptionally so.You already knew that, you say? We've got news for you. You may have read the words. You may have seen the screenshots. But it's only once the on-screen uber-violence is being directed by your very own sticky fingers that your jaw will finally drop at the gruesomeness
