Wii | Super Mario Galaxy 2 Impressions E-mail
Written by Munk   
Nintendo shows off a couple of new levels in its upcoming sequel to Super Mario Galaxy. Nintendo's media summit in San Francisco today began with a short opening speech by vice president of sales and marketing, Cammie Dunaway. She led the presentation into the first game demo of the day: Super Mario Galaxy 2. We were given a quick tour of a couple of levels of the game, which primarily highlighted the use of the drill, and we got a chance to see Yoshi basically eat everything digestible.

DS | Pokemon HeartGold Hands-On Impressions E-mail
Written by Munk   
We dust off our Pokeballs, rediscover some old friends, and get competitive as we battle for gold in the Pokelympics. It’s kind of hard to miss the Pokemon games when they seem to spawn a fresh instalment every year or two. 2009 saw the launch of the well-received Pokemon Platinum, and with it came some fresh new features to what has traditionally remained a relatively static formula series. While Pokemaniacs will argue about which game in the franchise’s expansive back catalogue has been the best so far, Nintendo has taken it upon itself to relaunch what it believes are the most popular versions with a new lick of paint. Pokemon HeartGold and Pokemon SoulSilver bring the story and monsters from the Game Boy Color versions of Pokemon Gold and Silver into the new decade with updated visuals, an extended story, and new monster friends to catch and battle.

Wii | Red Steel 2 Updated Hands-On E-mail
Written by Munk   
We get our slashing and shooting on in our latest look at Ubisoft's Wii-only action game. Have sword and pistol, (or shotgun, or machine gun) will travel. That's one possible motto for the upcoming Red Steel 2 from Ubisoft Paris. It's a game that looks to transform your Wii Remote (armed with a Wii MotionPlus attachment, which is required to play the game) into a virtual lethal weapon. Transformation is emblematic of Red Steel 2's entire approach. As a sequel to the original Red Steel from 2006, the game has gone through a vigorous and wholesale transformation--losing the modern-day action movie trappings of the original in favor of a hybrid Wild West sci-fi aesthetic. This is where cowboys in leather dusters commune with hacker chicks with dyed roots, and martial arts masters coexist in relative harmony with crusty, mustachioed town sheriffs. We've spent the past few days exploring the opening levels of Red Steel 2, and earlier in the month, we had a chance to speak with some of the developers behind the game to see how it's coming along ahead of its March release.

Wii | Rooms: The Main Building Hands-On E-mail
Written by Munk   

Chaperoned by a talking book, we try to find our way out of the strange world of gliding rooms. At some point in our childhood we must have all fiddled around with plastic sliding puzzles--the kind with one empty space so you could maneuver the little tiles around and rearrange them in numerical order or to complete a picture. Rooms: The Main Building is quite a few steps above that. Not only do you slide tiles around a grid, but each slide is a part of a room, with ladders, telephones, and other objects that can be interacted with as you try to find the way out. Originally a flash game, Rooms works well on the Nintendo Wii, where all you need to do is use the remote to point and click. For information on the DS version, you can read our previous preview on the game here.

Xbox 360 | Space Ark Hands-On E-mail
Written by Munk   

 

 

We play around with a cow and a trampoline in Strawdog's Space Ark. While a video of a dog jumping on a trampoline might sound like strange inspiration for a game, it was the starting point for Space Ark from Strawdog Studios. It's an arcade-cum-puzzle game that features a menagerie of cute animals on a trampoline and enough brightly coloured rainbows to startle even the most hardened of Peggle players. We invited Strawdog to our London office to get some hands-on time with its wacky puzzler.

PC | Command & Conquer 4: Tiberian Twilight Updated Hands-On - Single-Player Campaign E-mail
Written by Munk   
We get our hands on the single-player campaign in the final chapter of the Tiberian saga. The Command & Conquer real-time strategy series started back in 1996 and has gone from being a simple game of who can churn out more tanks to rush the enemy to being a campy, over-the-top stage for actors to chew the scenery in live-action cinematic sequences. Now, it's become a more serious military tale of nuanced conflict and environmentalism. (Then, there was also Red Alert 3, which had parachuting Soviet bears shot out of cannons and former world champion pro wrestler Ric Flair, but that's not important right now.) Command & Conquer 4 will be the last chapter in the series, and the story of its single-player campaign will tie up all the loose ends that first started coming undone years ago when we harvested that first patch of Tiberium crystals.

PlayStation 3 | Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands First Impression E-mail
User Rating: / 1
PoorBest 
Written by Munk   
The prince from the Sands of Time trilogy is back, and we find out what he was up to before his adventures in Warrior Within. Even though Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands will be released roughly around the same time as the Jerry Bruckheimer Hollywood blockbuster, there is no relation to the movie at all, so don't expect a Jake Gyllenhaal-look alike or voice actor. The story does take place in the Sands of Time universe, though, during the seven-year gap between the Sands of Time and Warrior Within. The Forgotten Sands will focus on just one of the prince's many wild adventures and explains his drastic transformation from the once naive, cheerful young man in Sands of Time to the jaded, brooding character seen in Warrior Within.
