Have You Played… Star Wars Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy?

This is one of the less celebrated of the classic Star Wars games (now decreed to be non-canonical by the House of Mouse). Don't get me wrong; it's no KotOR or Jedi Outcast, but there's a lot to like under the hood of Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy. Or, possibly, inside the tauntaun.

Call of Duty: WW2’s Liberty Strike is very loud and dumb

It's very nearly Explosion Day in America, so that means that every online shooter is doing its best to bludgeon us senseless with loud guns and louder outfits. Call of Duty: WW2 is no exception, but accompanying the Liberty Strike event's obligatory and garish red/white/blue-painted weaponry and outfits is a juicy little cherry of daftness on top. While Call of Duty isn't my usual cup of…

Call of Duty: WW2 blasts free multiplayer trial weekend

I don't understand how anyone can believe any first-person shooter series is improved by removing wallrunning and jetpacks, but apparently "historical accuracy" demanded Activision do that with Call of Duty: WW2. What rot! But if you do want to try zippy face-shooting with horrifying screams and no jetpacks, you can play CoD WoWa2's multiplayer for free this weekend. A free trial kicked off last night,…

Call of Duty: WW2 open beta starts preloading

After larking around in the present and future, Call of Duty this year returns to the war that kicked the series off, wrapping modern CoD in the spats and mud of the Second World War. How has that worked out? Well, you can see for yourself this weekend in the free PC open beta test for Call of Duty: WW2 [official site]. The test will…

Call of Duty: WW2 open beta hits PC on September 29th

Call of Duty [official site] is returning to its roots. No more orbital adventures and digital warfare, and little chance that the series will complete its full evolution into a sort of first-person Command & Conquer: Red Alert. Instead, the billboards that decorated E3 this year had a solemn air about them. "This," they wanted us to know, "is serious business." We'll have to wait…

Call of Duty: WW2’s HQ social space looks a right lark

I welcome spaces to goof off in serious competitive games. On the Plunkbat loading runway, you'll find me creeping along wonkily as I lean and wobble or launching myself into the air with the plane wing glitch. In Natural Selection's ready room, you bet I'm climbing onto heads. And in Call of Duty: WW2 [official site], oh boy, the 'Headquarters' social space looks great fun.…

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered now sold seperately

Activision have finally released Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered [official site] by itself, no longer restricted to being an extra in an expensive edition of CoD: Infinite Warfare. Not that the revamp of 2007's seminal Call of Duty 4 is much more affordable now it's sold seperately, mind. If you want to relive the good old days, it'll cost you £35. And extra for…

Call of Duty: WW2 recruits Doctor Who for Nazi Zombies

Actors including David Tennant (Ian Whom PhD), Elodie Yung (Electro), Katheryn Winnick (Ribs), Ving Rhames (Quentin Tarantino's A True Story), and Udo Kier (Disturbia) are lending their voices to characters in the cooperative Nazi Zombies mode of Call of Duty: WW2 [official site], Activision announce. I'm sure they're fine actors but the next CoD: Infinite Warfare zombie DLC has Elvira, Mistress of the Dark and…

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered standalone release coming

Love a duck and stone the crows, Activision are finally going to sell Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered [official site] seperately. Because they're a gaggle of silly sausages, they originally launched the revamped version of 2007's wildly popular Call of Duty 4 only as a bonus included in expensive editions of the wildly unpopular Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare. Seven months later, Activision have…

Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare Multiplayer review

We’ve already aired our misgivings over Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare’s campaign mode but how does the multiplayer stack up? Does the space-future setting re-energise the arena, or is it the same as always with a fresh coat of silver paint? We threw Brendan into the murderfields to find out. It has a fitting name, I’ll give it that. Call of Duty is the series…

Call Of Duty: Infinite Warfare’s Campaign review

Battlefield 1 may have fallen back to 1914 but the other first-person shooters of the year are marching on, towards militaristic futurewar. Titanfall 2 was released a week ago (inexplicably, in the gap between two monster franchises) and now Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare [official site] has rounded off the explosive triumvirate with more grenades, dogfights and tin men. It’s that final image – that…

Yowch! It's coming to Steam on Tuesday. Bap! What's more, Marvel are also releasing its sequel, Ultimate Alliance 2, on PC for the very first time. Bim!

Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered – Watch Full Crew Expendable Mission

Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered has a new video showing off the game's snazzy makeover. To the casual viewer you are seeing bits of Crew Expendable, the second mission from the game wherein yer man Soap MacTavish is going on a cruise sent to retrieve a package from an Estonian freighter. More technically-focused watchers will note "next generation textures, physically based rendering high-dynamic range…

Here’s Six Minutes Of CoD: Infinite Warfare’s Campaign

Although Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare [official site] is sadly not the procedurally-generated Escherian Nightmare we might've hoped for, Activision's latest war-torn FPS is set in space and you'll be pleased to know its single-player campaign looks to be shaping up nicely.  Don't take my word for it, though - cast your eyes over six new minutes of gameplay highlights below.

Have You Played… HeXen: Beyond Heretic

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day of the year, perhaps for all time. Hexen was released at a time when I bought just about any first-person game that I could get my hands on. In the mid-nineties that meant I had a shelf full of games running on id engines, many of which were made by…

Call Of Duty 4 Remaster Only Sold With Infinite Warfare

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered, the prettied-up version of Infinity Ward's seminal shooter Call of Duty 4, will indeed only be available as a bundle-in with some of Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare's many premium editions. That's what Activision say, at least. I am astonished. That can't mean that, can they? They must have been so excited about Infinite Warfare's spaceships and power armour…

Call Of Duty: Infinite Warfare Announced

Activision today announced Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare [official site], the latest in their long-running mega-hit military FPS series, and I am sorely disappointed. Firstly, today is a holiday in the UK, so I'm not even supposed to be here. Secondly, Infinite Warfare is about futurewar with spaceships and everything, not the Escherian nightmare that we were assured it would be. This 'real' Infinite Warfare…

Have You Played… Quake IV?

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game recommendations. One a day, every day of the year, perhaps for all time. This is one of those HYPs where it's very much a question rather than a recommendation. Have you played it? Particularly, have you played it recently? It felt like such a disappointment at the time, but that was a time when we craved…

Have You Played… Soldier Of Fortune 2?

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game recommendations. One a day, every day of the year, perhaps for all time. Have I played Soldier of Fortune 2? To be honest, I don't think I lasted longer than the first mission in the full game's singleplayer campaign. But the demo! The demo and its capture-the-suitcase multiplayer mode and a level set in Matrix-aping high-rise…

Call Of Duty Online Is More Call Of Duty Than Call Of Duty

Word of warning: you probably cannot (easily) access Call of Duty Online. It's a free-to-play extension of Activision's cash cow that lays golden eggs, and it's tailor-made for Chinese markets. That said, I simply must share this trailer with you, because it's the most Call-of-Duty related Call of Duty thing I've seen in a long time. Two words: robot zombies.
