" Burnout Revenge - New Screens
EA's orgy of automotive destruction gets prepped for another go.
It speaks volumes that at May's E3 the latest Burnout game for Xbox was getting more attention than EA's other action-slash-driving game, Need for Speed: Most Wanted on Xbox 360.
Burnout Revenge looks good on PlayStation 2...
Burnout Revenge is the culmination of EA's experimentation on the simple formula of seeing how fast cars can go and how violently they can thunder into one another.
...and on Xbox too
Traffic is a more important factor for Burnout Revenge, as is the whole Takedown aspect of bringing down your fellow racers using whatever underhanded moves you have to use. Opponents are flagged so that you know who is gunning for you, perhaps after you pushed them into an oncoming big-rig truck.
The game has also been tweaked to emphasise the action bits over the actual A-to-B driving. Multiple routes give you more freedom, allowing you to make it to B via G and Z if you so choose. There's even a new mode that involves no real racing whatsoever but rather tasks you with causing as much carnage as possible.
Burnout Revenge will be out for Xbox and PlayStation 2 this September."
"Big Red One Hears the Call of Duty
Publishers and developers show no sign of letting up on the World War II-themed shooters. Latest screens.
You could be forgiven for thinking that developers' infatuation with World War II should have worn off by now, but the constant success of their war-games means we'll still be seeing them for a while. Case in point, Activision is starting to get word out on its own new World War II sequel.
Activision is keeping mum on the precise make-up of Call of Duty 2: Big Red One - not to be confused with Call of Duty 2 for Xbox 360 - other than that it plays through the perspective of a single character and takes you on a whirlwind tour of some of the big war's most popular theatres, including North Africa, Italy and Central Europe.
The title refers to the US Army 1st Infantry Division, which kicked off America's involvement in World War II in Operation Torch, in North Africa. After routing the Nazi Afrika Korps, the Big Red One moved to Sicily and Germany, via Omaha Beach on D-Day and the Battle Of The Bulge.
Activision has been parsimonious too with release details, but the game should be out this year for Xbox, PlayStation 2 and GameCube."
"Agent 47 Hits the Web
The suave assassin is about to learn what it feels like on the other side of the scope.
Agent 47, star of Eidos' Hitman series, is not a man to be trifled with. As one of the top killers-for-hire around, he's taken out marks all around the world. But now there's a new target he needs to worry about - himself.
In Hitman: Blood Money the tables are turned on our glabrous hero as a rival agency systematically grinds through Agent 47's colleagues at the international Contract Agency.
With little recourse in sight, he sets off for America to find out who's trying to kill him and why, and to do a little killing of his own on the way.
This latest Hitman game mixes up the series' hallmark gameplay, offering you more freedom in how you play. The money you earn from kills is dependent on how clean the job was, and how you spend it is entirely up to you. You can buy information or weapons or even defray the extent of your notoriety.
Hitman: Blood Money also uses new control and camera systems, giving you a better eye on the brutal actions taking place on-screen.
The game is on track for release on Xbox, PlayStation 2 and PC nearer the end of the year. For more information about the game, visit the newly launched official site."
"Medal of Honor Battles for Top Spot
New releases can't shift EA's war-game from the premiere position on the UK chart.
It was a bad week for new releases as the incumbents proved overwhelming in their dominance of gamers' affections.
Medal of Honor makes it two weeks in a row on top
EA's latest kill-'em-up, Medal of Honor: European Assault, helped itself to another week at the top, holding off THQ's dynamic duo of the rejuvenated Destroy All Humans! and the ad-boosted Juiced.
The only new title in the top 10 was Cricket 2005, which no doubt capitalized on the current tour playing out on the pitches of Britain. Activision's multiplatform movie tie-in, Madagascar, suffered in its debut weekend, likely because the film has yet to hit British screens.
New DS titles Goldeneye: Rogue Agent and Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory also failed to crack the top of the chart, and with the debacle that was the recent Indianapolis Grand Prix still fresh in their minds, race fans left Formula 1 05 sitting on the shelves.
Below are the top 10 games in the UK for the week ending 2 July, as determined by Chart Track:
1. Medal Of Honor: European Assault (EA)
2. Destroy All Humans! (THQ)
3. Juiced (THQ)
4. Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas (Rockstar)
5. Cricket 2005 (EA)
6. Battlefield 2 (EA)
7. Tekken 5 (Namco)
8. Lego Star Wars (Eidos)
9. Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith (LucasArts)
10. Batman Begins (EA)
plenty of new games to entertain us till the arrival of next generation

hmm.... seems like CoD2 is coming out for PS afterall..... just a different version. Probably won't get it because I've tried CoD on the consoles and it didn't go from the PC (CoD : UO) to console (Finest Hour).
