WolfKing Warrior Review
review | 08/08/06 | Tristan Mayshark
Since Half-Life made \"WSAD\" input the standard for all first person shooters, numerous efforts have been made to make a keyboard aimed at gamers, and most have failed miserably. The WolfKing Warrior doesn\'t so much fall flat on its face, as it does smash its wolfy snout right into hard pavement.

Pre-E3 2006: Crysis - Storytelling for A New Generation
game: Crysis
preview | 05/05/06 | Chris Martin
\"What makes a game, Mr. Yerli? Is it having the best graphics, no matter the cost? Is that what makes a game?...\" (Kudos if you know the homage). Even though Crysis, CryTek\'s newest project for the PC, has graphics that will drop your jaw, CryTek CEO Cevat Yerli has made it clear that they have no intentions of letting it become another FarCry: Instincts. Just like Half-Life became famous partly for its in-game use of storytelling, Crysis hopes to stand out for more than just its great graphics and gameplay. CryTek hopes to shed the image of producing video games with B-Movie storylines; they\'re aiming to offer next generation storytelling for a new generation of gaming.

UberSoldier! Review
game: UberSoldier
review | 05/01/06 | Tristan Mayshark
If the slow pacing of FPS titles like Half-Life 2 and Doom 3 put you off, UberSoldier might be able to offer a more mindless and action oriented experience at a budget price. Some players will think it\'s a wonderful excursion from the tedious, and some players will quite reasonably hate it. For the former group, this zombie-filled WWII shooter is worth the $29 that you\'ll put down at your local video game store. It embodies old-school first person shooting, executing the genre tried-and-true without all that complicated crap like an interesting plot.

Half-Life 2 Review
game: Half-Life 2
review | 01/09/06 | Shawn Rider
One of the great things about Half-Life 2 was the way it scaled to different levels of machine. On a high-end PC it was amazingly beautiful, and on a more regular rig it was still very enjoyable. So you\'d think that the Xbox port of Half-Life 2 would be pretty much awesome: At least as good as the mid-range PC experience. And, for the most part, you\'d be right, as long as \"awesome\" includes a gazillion load screens and the stickiest doorways we\'ve seen in ages. How does it all turn out? Check Shawn\'s review for the details.

game: Revolution
news | 10/29/05 | Aaron Stanton
With the Xbox 360 only a few weeks away, the next generation consoles are about to begin the process of officially becoming this generation. With all the energy building up around the pending 360 release, it\'s not surprising that the Nintendo faithfull are speculating about what their system is going to play like. We\'ve all seen video, but very few have had any chance to really sit down with the Nintendo controller. Well, one creative gamer assembled a Nintendo Revolution controller out of pieces and parts of computer equipment he had around the house. Then he played Half-Life 2 with it. Then posted instructions and videos.

Half-Life 2
game: Half-Life 2
review | 12/29/04 | Chris Martin
It's been five years since the original Half-life wowed the world with its brilliantly executed in-game scripting and storytelling; quite a wait for those of us holding our breaths for a full-blown sequel. Now we have it, possibly one of the most beautiful games ever, and with a crowbar that can actually break open barrels this time around. Can it possibly be as good as the original? Find out.

Halo 2
game: Halo 2
review | 11/18/04 | Chris Martin
In case you\'ve been living under a rock for the past two weeks, you know that Halo 2 is out. (And in case you have a Gamecube and PC under that rock, Metroid Prime 2: Echoes and Half-Life 2 are also out.) Everyone knows that Halo 2 is pretty much teh h0tness, but that doesn\'t stop you from wondering what we gave it, right? After all, there was that whole Doom 3 thing a few months ago...

Doom 3
game: Doom 3
review | 08/11/04 | GF! Back Catalogue 10/2004 => 1995
An entire generation of games was launched the day that iD released the first shareware versions of Doom back in 1994. Quake, Unreal, Half-Life; they all owe something to the game that started it all (ignoring Wolfenstein 3D, of course). Now, Doom 3 is on the shelves, and maybe the tables have turned. Let Tristan tell you about old games and new graphics. Read our review.
