Review Hitman 2 Review
One of three games being produced by a partnership between EA and Steven Spielberg, Boom Blox is one of the most addictive and accessible games for the Wii we've ever played. But can this Jenga-like puzzle game appeal to all audiences, or just the casual market?
The full name is actually "Penny Arcade Adventures: On the Rain-Slick Precipice of Darkness", but we couldn't fit it in the headline. No matter. The real issue is whether or not Tycho and Gabe can make a game worth playing. We take the Xbox 360 version out for a spin...
We know all about overclocking, or at least we thought we did. Turns out that overclocking isn't actually anything to do with increasing the performance of a system component. It's actually a psychological thriller from House of Tales. Weird, eh?
We've been playing a bit of Left4Dead recently and now that we've finally managed to tear ourselves away from it, we think it's only fair to share with you the details of this four-player Co-Op zombie shooter from Valve and Turtle Rock Studios.
Volker Wertich isn't a name you often hear bandied about, but since he created the original Settlers and Spellforce games we figured he might be more than deserving of our ear - especially when it comes to his new, just-announced RTS, Battleforge.
Grand Theft Auto IV has landed and we've all finally been let loose in Liberty City. It was billed as one of the best games ever made even before release, but now we have a chance to see for ourselves and make our own minds up - check out our thoughts in our detailed review.
Battlefield: Bad Company ruffled a lot of feathers recently when DICE said it would be charging players for access to certain weapons. When DICE changed its mind there was a sigh of relief though - now we chat to Jamie Keen, the man behind the game, to get the full story.
Age of Reckoning is the new MMO based on the Warhammer franchise and we've been lucky enough to bag an interview with producer Josh Drescher. Find out what he has to say about Warhammer, the fall of Iron Lore Studios and trying to topple World of Warcraft.
We loved the Iron Man film and, as avowed fans of the comics, we've got some high hopes for this mechanical brawler. The real question though is can the Iron Man game live up to the success of the film? Can this be stronger than the man of steel, or is it limper than Mr Fantastic?
After giving away all our copies of Assassin's Creed PC to you lovely people, we've finally managed to get one of our own to review. Yeah, we know we should have thought ahead, but it's too late for that now. Check out the review and graphical comparison to see what we think.
We recently interviewed Doug Dodson, the CTO of premier PSU maker PC Power & Cooling, about his thoughts on the industry, enthusiasts, where the humble power supply is heading, his own designs for modular units and his quips on Ultra's modular patent!
At a recent Electronic Arts showcase, Battlefield Heroes was the surprise hit of the show - pulling fans away from other games to have a go at the new casual-focused, cel-shaded shooter. We caught up with executive producer Ben Cousins during the show to find out more.
We got a chance to sit down with Chet Faliszek recently, writer for Valve's upcoming co-op zombie game Left4Dead. We quizzed him on all sorts of topics from how the game works to what he'll do when the zombies attack - find out his answers here!
Yoshinori Kitase was the director of Final Fantasy VII, so it's hard to get much more powerful in this business. Now, as the prequel to FFVII launches across Europe, we sit down with him and discuss Crisis Core and why exactly he's so big in Japan.
The more we cover it, the more we find that many of you are interested in getting your feet wet with the penguins. But some things just aren't that simple in Linux and one such thing is wireless networking. Our resident guru Ken Gypen takes a whack at de-mystifying what is one of the biggest pains in Linux.
With so many great games now exclusive to Windows, are Mac and Linux users getting left out in the cold? Not if Codeweavers and its new program Crossover Games has anything to say about it. But does it really bridge the gap, or is dual-booting still the way to go?
Square Enix is best known for the Final Fantasy series, but in a departure from the norm the Japanese developer has just released The World Ends With You - an action RPG for the DS which plays on topics of fashion and graffiti - but is it any good?
Gran Turismo 5 Prologue is finally here, filling the gap until the full game. Is it worth the cost and can it entice more players to the PlayStation 3, or is it little more than tech demo which you'll have to pay for? Andy finds out!
The Razer Lycosa is the latest board from Razer and it looks to be a corker. With a slim design and oh-so-pleasing keys, you'd be forgiven if you forgot the touch-sensitive media keys and adjustable backlight. Let's see how it fares in our hands though...
Viking: Battle for Asgard may offer players the chance to go blade-on-blade with some sexy and evil Norse goddesses, but that'll only impress us so much. Can Sega take Viking the extra mile or is this warrior all out of woad? Find out within!
We're behind enemy lines, hunkered down in a bomb shelter and steadily typing out our report. Want a sneak peak at our covert intelligence from the Battlefield: Bad Company multiplayer beta? Then you've come to the right place!
Kane may be evil, but we can't get enough of him or Joe Kucan. Imagine our glee then that C&C3 is getting a Kane-centric expansion already - and a violent one at that! Of course, whether the game is any good or not depends on more than just cheesy FMV mission briefings...
Decent RPGs are a scarce commodity on the Nintendo DS, but with randomly generated dungeons and a hardcore RPG design, Shiren could be the best attempt we've seen yet - or could it? Grab your Goggles of Identification and find out!
Mainstream commercial games driving you nuts? Want some quick, free games to fill your lunch breaks or early evenings? We've got just the thing in our round-up of the best PC and Nintendo DS indie and experimental games.
Windows Vista Service Pack 1 was released to the public last week and as we will be moving all of our test systems to SP1 over time, we felt it was necessary to put the new Service Pack under the microscope. Today we look at gaming performance across a range of titles.
No More Heroes is the hugely surreal Wii-exclusive from the developer behind Killer 7. Full to the brim with Jedi-like assassins, beautiful babes and retro appeal, No More Heroes could be the best Wii game yet - but it has to get our approval first!
