Bringing the legendary war between two of science-fiction’s most popular characters to FPS fans, AvP delivers three outstanding single player campaigns and provides untold hours of unique 3-way multiplayer gaming.

Experience distinctly new and thrilling first person gameplay as you survive, hunt and prey in the deadly jungles and swamps surrounding the damned colony of Freya’s Prospect.

- As the Marine, you’ll experience a claustrophobic and terrifying experience where light is your friend, but there’s never enough. However, the United States Marine Corps are humanity’s last line of defence, and as such they are armed to the teeth with the very latest in high explosive and automatic weaponry.

- As the Predator, you will stalk from the shadows and from above, passing athletically through the treetops to ambush your victims. Although equipped with an array of powerful, exotic weapons and tracking equipment, honour ultimately dictates that you must get in close and take your trophies face to face.

- As the most deadly species in the universe, the Alien offers you the chance to play as the very stuff of nightmares - the monster in the dark swarming forward with countless others, jaws like a steel trap and claws like blades.

- Play all sides off against each other in a series of unique 3-way online modes and go tooth-to-claw-to-pulse rifle in the reinvention of one of multiplayer gaming’s defining moments.

Halo 3: ODST Cheats and Codes

Hint: Hidden Skull Locations

Hidden skulls have been with the series since Halo 2, so naturally ODST brings with it a unique set of hidden skulls to find. There are three total, each hidden inside one of the new multiplayer maps. Fortunately, you don't need to search for the skulls while in the midst of a multiplayer battle—in fact, you'll need to find them in Forge mode (Forge is available on the multiplayer disc). Load up the level and use the flying camera mode to navigate to the skull locations, which we've outlined in the video below. When you've found the skull, position yourself above it and then toggle out of the flying camera mode and hold whichever button you've got mapped to picking up weapons (default is RB). Your character should fall past the skull and pick it up on the way down—if you miss it, just try again

Wolfenstein Review

Written by luuk on Saturday, 10 October 2009 13:50.


Wolfenstein has always been a series of days that a futuristic twist on the Second World War throws tough action where a drop of blood more or less an obstacle. In 1992 Wolfenstein 3D was the game that the first-person shooter genre popular, but will the new Wolfenstein show how brutal the setting and coarseness of the series actually is?

Wolfenstein walks the familiar path of the series and is set in 1943, right in the Second World War. Himmler and his SS to the dark forces of Black Sun and get those forces people to switch between the real world and an alternative universe, The Veil. There are several forces are working in The Veil and this is one of the main straight game elements from Wolfenstein. It is not just blown shoot in this alternative history.

The Veil The forces are thus complementary to the first clash of arms and force you to choose you get is the ability to travel to The Veil. In this world you quickly see your enemies better and you can disable enemies by destroying their spirits floating around. As the game progresses you get more power and the story of the game revolves around the search for these dark forces and stopping the Nazis in this quest.

The action part in Wolfenstein is really great contrast. The shooting, the action and the impact of the bullets in the many Nazis make this game so bold to play that you can not wait to see the story again to save and continue to pop. The game looks good and although the graphics a bit nicer had liked, the action will ensure that you quickly forget the little mistakes.

Wolfenstein's strength lies in the brutality. Even the 'ordinary' weapons work great and the result of a well-aimed bullet to the opponents is fantastic to see. Shoot a Nazi in his head and a gaping gunshot wound will result. All weapons through a dealer to upgrade and complete the game later in the game you also can destroy limbs of adversaries.
The control of the game feels like the Call of Duty series. This course is not a weakness, because that series has proven plenty. Movement is good, focus is not too fast nor too slow and everything just feels good. Drawback is still the AI, which sometimes is asleep. A beheading is a good punishment for not observant characters.

Wolfenstein brings what to bring. Tough action with limbs flying ears, cool superpowers, fat monster weapons that have fatter sample to upgrade all in a nice bloody sauce. Of course the game is not perfect. The a.i. has occasionally cures, the story is not interesting and the graphics it's no wonder child. But the action is so good and so addictive that you forget all the negative points during the action and in addition you can also pop the hard multiplayer. This game is worth a thick 8 and that he will also.
