Trauma Center: Under the Knife Review
game: Trauma Center: Under the Knife
review | 10/14/05 | George Holomshek
Trauma Center: Under the Knife is one of the most unique games available on a system that\'s known for offering some rather unique experiences. The medical puzzle game is challenging and addictive, and uses the DS stylus to make cutting someone open fun instead of just icky. It\'s mindblowingly difficult, which gives us that much more respect for medical professionals. It\'s also kind of weird: Why is the best move the \"cool\" move? Is it just us, or is it weird to prefer \"cool\" over \"good\" medical procedures? Oh well, we have a botox party to get to. Enjoy the review!

Eye Toy Play 2 Breaks the Party Game Barrier
game: Eye Toy Play 2
review | 09/05/05 | Shawn Rider
Sony\'s Eye Toy is one of the coolest innovations we\'ve seen in gaming controllers. Of course, the original EyeToy Play disc was a bit shallow and remains more of a tech demo. However, EyeToy Play 2 is a really wonderful improvement, offering much deeper gameplay and more enjoyable multiplayer.

Bungie Asks Halo Fans to Fight the Flood
game: Halo 2
news | 09/04/05 | Shawn Rider
Bungie has made a clever t-shirt that it is selling to help out victims of Hurricane Katrina. It\'s cool because not only are they donating $15 for every $20 shirt sold directly and immediately to the American Red Cross, but the shirt is actually a clever Halo \"flood\" joke. And it\'s tasteful. Bravo Bungie. Click view the shirt in the Bungie store.

Obscure
game: Obscure
review | 05/21/05 | Laurie Taylor
Obscure is to survival horror games as Scream was to teen horror flicks. With a cool two-player co-op mode and a bargain basement price, this is one of those "sure to be a cult hit" games that some gamers are going to really enjoy, and others will probably find pretty decent. If you've played a lot of horror games, you should really check this one out. And don't let the Sum 41 put you off.

City of Heroes
game: City of Heroes
review | 08/25/04 | GF! Back Catalogue 10/2004 => 1995
There's nothing quite like a little super hero gaming to go with a summer that contained the release of one of the best super hero franchises to hit Hollywood. After seeing Spiderman 2, try your hand at creating your own super hero in City of Heroes. If you haven't played this little gem yet, it's time to stop dragging your feet and jump onboard with the rest of us super-cool do-gooders.

Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon
game: Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon
review | 04/21/04 | GF! Back Catalogue 10/2004 => 1995
Years after amazing worldwide moviegoers, Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon is adapted for the interactive environment. So I know what you're thinking; it's another huge movie that is now also a videogame and we all know that means it's going to suck. But wait! This is a foreign language film not a Hollywood blockbuster, and the movie had cool kung-fu videogames can make cool kung-fu too! And they can't possibly have rushed it to time the release with the movie, the DVD release, or even the two year anniversary. Maybe there is hope after all... nope. Never mind. It sucks. Click here to find out why it disappoints so profoundly.

Sphinx and Cursed Mummy
game: Sphinx and Cursed Mummy
review | 04/21/04 | GF! Back Catalogue 10/2004 => 1995
It might be tempting to dismiss Sphinx and the Cursed Mummy as just another platformer, but you'd be missing out it you did. Though there are a few flaws to be found here and there, great characters, varied gameplay, and cool puzzles are just a few of the reasons to give this one a look. Click here for the full review.

Me Lean Like Persian Prince, You Buff Like Conan: Part I
Articles Archive | 04/21/04 | Aaron Stanton
True story: I was in an arcade in Hong Kong a couple of weeks ago and everyone was lining up in front the latest light-gun game sensation - Hong Kong Super Kill Cop, or something like that. I threw down my tokens and drew, only to find some high tech gadgetry was tracking my body movement.. You want your character to duck behind that desk, you better duck.. or lean, or dodge. It was like lasertag only cooler because it had all the joy of a videogame. By the time I got capped by a crime lord I was breathing heavy, sweating profusely and my muscles were cramped from over exertion. It was one of the most intense 30 seconds I've ever spent with a videogame. Apparently I'm not the only gamer in need of a little exercise. Aaron Stanton takes on the issue in his latest article. Exercise your index finger right here for the good stuff.

Max Payne II: The Fall of Max Payne
game: Max Payne II: The Fall of Max Payne
review | 11/01/03 | GF! Back Catalogue 10/2004 => 1995
Want to make a legend? Here's the recipe: Take your usual action videogame, add a half pound of cool, two cups of kick ass, and a teaspoon of uber style. It worked last time, and Rockstar's latest, Max Payne 2: The Fall of Max Payne: A Film Noir Love Story, improves on the origional title in almost every aspect.
