Fight Night Round 3
Bytesector :: Friday, March 31, 2006
“Let’s get ready to rumble with EA Sports’ Fight Night: Round 3. Not being much of a boxing fan myself, I was pleasantly surprised by how much fun this game is, and how addictive it can be (especially on Xbox Live). Realistic graphics add to the game’s appeal, along with numerous game modes. Although the boxers don’t enter the ring in satin robes, and the product placements are blatant and cheesy (the Burger King king has been rendered and included), FNR3 is as close to boxing as you can get without slipping into gloves and shoving a guard into your mouth.”

Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter XBOX 360
Driver Heaven :: Friday, March 31, 2006
Lately we?ve been coming across a lot of titles that you just know are going to be great even before you?ve actually tried the game out. When the words Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter drip from Ubisoft?s mouth it was difficult to not even be the least bit excited. Although many would have embraced the idea of having this one as a launch title, it seems as if Ubi used the extra development time to produce what is arguably the best entry in the Ghost Recon series ever.

Full Spectrum Warrior: Ten Hammers Preview
Bytesector :: Friday, March 31, 2006

“The rain falls slowly onto your helmet, muddying the ground around you. It’s been a miserable day, and it’s about to get worse. Your squad has been pinned down into a corner of the city, and it’s not looking good. There are two plausible options open to you; make way into the woodworks of the war-scarred town, or push as best you can towards reinforcements. With a crack of thunder and lightning piercing the sky, a large armored vehicle hulks your way, grinding along the muddy ground. Could the day get any worse?”

If you port a game, at least do it right!
NGOHQ :: Monday, March 27, 2006
“The movie “The Godfather” is widely regarded as one of the best movies ever made. Earlier this week Electronic Arts released a new game based on the film. This game was originally made for the Xbox and has now been ported to PC. It follows in the same vein as games such as Mafia and GTA: San Andreas, and has been getting a lot of positive feedback. However, EA forgot something relatively important with this port”

Rush for Berlin
Strategy Informer :: Monday, March 27, 2006

A World War II strategy game, is this just another to throw on the mountainous pile? It must be very hard to get worth while public attention in this themes market, after all there isn’t exactly a shortage of exploited Nazi antics in the gaming realm. With that said, Rush for Berlin does seem to be showing enough battle fuelled potential for carnage in this demo version.

The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion
Strategy Informer :: Monday, March 27, 2006

Oblivion is the 4th major game of the massive RPG elder scrolls series, and as we’ve come to expect with Bethesda Softworks, it’s a work of phenomenal beauty. The quests are better than ever, the story is well thought out, the incredible graphics speak for themselves, and the game is more compelling than ever. Negatives? Well, I’ll tell you one thing, it aint going to help your social life any.
