REVIEWS World of Tanks (PS4) Review
Modern warfare shooters are a dime-a-dozen, so why not jump behind the “wheel” of a ten-ton behemoth and incorporate strategy to decimate the enemy?

Attractio Review
In the year 3275, the most exciting thing to do is watch people move boxes around a room. If this truly is the future, please end me now!

After all these years, and growing up with Windows 3.1, I have seen an entire evolution of computers and software. Touch screens and large resolutions were a pipe dream just 15 years ago. Now it's the norm. Going from a Packard Bell (yes, before HP) that couldn't run 3D Ultra Mini...

What do these ratings mean?

On Monday, I had the pleasure of joining some of my fellow journalists at a Sony event down in Los Angeles, California, for a look at Kratos' next-gen premiere in God of War 3. Is bigger actually better? The developers certainly seem to think so.

However, to really understand exactly how ambitious they're getting here, you have to look at the macro level. From Kratos' furrowed brow, you can pull back, and zoom out, and zoom out, and zoom out until you can see the entire level - the size of a mountain. And that level is climbing up another mountain.

Yes, the terrain itself is alive in God of War 3, as Kratos has enlisted the Titans in his war against the gods. And as the Titans scale mount Olympus, Kratos scales the Titans.

The other new element is rideable creatures. Some of the bigger creatures, like cyclops, can be controlled by climbing on them and goading them with your blades, essentially turning them into vehicles.

And new technology also allows a new level of gore, with proper gut-wrenching eviscerations and eye-gouging. My favorite enemy to maim was one you won't see in the new trailer: a Chimera that completely changes stance and battle tactics each time you defeat one of its three heads. It's like three bosses in one.

The rest is all the classic, awesome, bloody mayhem we've come to love from the series. But why take my word for it, when you can watch GR's exclusive interviews below?
