Ubisoft Focus: Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory
game: Ubisoft Focus: Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory
preview | 02/09/05 | Chris Martin
Splinter Cell: Pandora Tomorrow was unique in its ability to offer a multiplayer experience that was balanced and fun even though it had completely different play dynamics depending on the side you were on. Now, Chaos Theory aims to have spies working through levels in tandem with Co-op multiplay, a slew of new gadgets, and such added features as proximity communications. Getting a guard's attention is no longer a matter of just pressing a button to whistle, but actually whistling into your communicator. Will it work? If past experience with the series is any indication, it probably will. What else does Sam have up his sleeve this year? You'll have to read the preview to find out.

Project: Snowblind
game: Project: Snowblind
preview | 01/19/05 | Chris Martin
Deus Ex was one of the great intellectual shooters. It allowed a level of freedom in gameplay that has never been matched in the FPS genre, even by its own sequels. But where, oh where has Deus Ex gone? Well in this case, it started over. Project: Snowblind, once built to be Deus Ex: Clan Wars, launches into a new world that offers that same style freedom of choice with a directed story that keeps you from being lost or bored. Take a look at this upcoming release, packed full of enemies, explosions, and intrigue.

Articles Archive | 01/17/05 | Aaron Stanton

Pinball Hall of Fame: The Gottlieb Collection
game: Pinball Hall of Fame: The Gottlieb Collection
review | 01/14/05 | Chris Martin
Not every game has to offer hours of pre-scripted gameplay, beautiful graphics, and brilliant voice acting in order to be good. In fact, sometimes what we need is a game that can be picked up, played for fifteen minutes, and then set aside without having to worry about any of those other time-consuming elements. Pinball Hall of Fame takes us a few steps down memory lane with a game that offers fun, addictive play for those times when a long-haul gaming binge just isn't what you're looking for.

Ubisoft Focus: Tork: Prehistoric Punk
game: Ubisoft Focus: Tork: Prehistoric Punk
preview | 12/31/04 | Chris Martin
Lots of people claim to have developer loyalty, but developers aren't the only ones that make the dream of a game come true. While their work might make a game good, it's publishers that get a game sold. If Ubisoft hadn't taken a chance on a few unique design concepts, games like Prince of Persia and the brilliant Beyond Good and Evil wouldn't have ever made it out of the developer's door. In the first of our Publisher Focus series, we're taking a look at what games Ubisoft has planned for us, starting with Tork: Prehistoric Punk. Make sure you read about this January release.

Conker: Live & Reloaded
game: Conker: Live & Reloaded
preview | 12/26/04 | Chris Martin
The trash-talkin', poo-whompin', Tediz slaughterin' squirrel is back. Conker: Live and Reloaded is the Xbox update of one of the best platformers for the N64. And although we loved the game on the N64, it's a little hard to imagine Rare spending the time to bring the same game out again on the Xbox. So let's take a hands-on look at the game with our man, Chris, to see just what we can expect, and get a better idea if this game should elicit a big sigh, or a big squeal.

Blinx 2: Masters of Space and Time
game: Blinx 2: Masters of Space and Time
review | 12/05/04 | Laurie Taylor
Blinx 2: Masters of Space and Time is the big M's latest attempt at platform excellence. And like their previous attempts at platform excellence, it definitely has its ups and downs. Can the scrappy tabby pull this one out? Not with all the time crystals in the world...

Midway Arcade Treasures 2
game: Midway Arcade Treasures 2
review | 11/30/04 | Chris Martin
Some people have greater claim to history than others. Britney Spears, who's been a pop icon for somewhere around five years, has a harder time legitimately releasing a Greatest Hits album than say, The Rolling Stones, or The Beatles. But in the videogame industry, few companies can claim history like Midway, and they've put together another collection of classics to let us gamers relive the old-school. How have these forerunners held up over the years? Make sure you read our review to find out if this collection should make it into a loved one's gift pile? or onto your wish list.

Terminator 3: The Redemption
game: Terminator 3: The Redemption
review | 11/23/04 | Jeremy Kauffman
It's so easy to pass by those pesky movie based titles. How often are they any good, really? Most of the time, games based on movies miss the charm or the magic or whatever it was that made the movie good, and serve up nothing but a laundry list of formulaic gameplay. But not always. Read why T3: Redemption isn't just another movie game on rails? well? almost. Check out the full review.
