Gamers interested in games in the flight genre, but who aren’t interested in the in-depth simulation aspects many of them include, don’t have many games to choose from. Luckily for those gamers, the one series they do have, Ace Combat, has a stellar track record of combining only a few simulation aspects with an emphasis on arcade-like gameplay. The latest game in the series is Ace Combat: Assault Horizon, coming soon for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. Ace Combat: Assault Horizon seems to add just enough new elements while maintaining what has made the series popular for so many years; a winning combination for both new and old fans to the franchise.

Twisted Metal Review: Metal, Blood, Bones and a sweet…. tooth

Upon its release in 1995, Twisted Metal became a household name for the PlayStation. Its unique cast of characters, interesting plot, car combat gameplay and amazing multiplayer helped cement it as one of the PlayStation’s best games in its first year. However, a string of subpar sequels caused the Twisted Metal brand to languish, even though it saw a brief resurrection with the critically acclaimed Twisted Metal: Black for PlayStation 2. Series creator David Jaffe returns to the series to revive it once again with the PlayStation 3 exclusive Twisted Metal.

Assassins Creed III

After three games set in Europe, all starring Ezio Auditore, the Assassin’s Creed formula had started to become stale. While Assassin’s Creed II breathed new life into the franchise, catapulting it into star franchise status, and Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood further further improved the gameplay, Assassin’s Creed: Revelations started to wane a bit. While Ezio was interesting and a great protagonist, gamers were eager for a change of pace and to experience a new protagonist, similar to when the franchise switched from Altair to Ezio in Assassin’s Creed to Assassin’s Creed II. Assassin’s Creed III, releasing on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC, looks to be just what gamers wanted in this regard.

In 2000, Sega released Jet Set Radio, known as Jet Grind Radio in the United States, on the Dreamcast. The game’s soundtrack, cell-shaded visuals and fun gameplay involving spray painting, or tagging, surfaces instantly made it a hit. For those gamers without a Dreamcast, Sega is re-releasing Jet Set Radio, now the same name in all countries, as a digital download. Set for release on the Xbox Live Arcade, PlayStation Network and PC, Jet Set Radio is a high definition port of this classic Sega game. Players select from a wide array of characters, such as Beat, Gum and Corn, is they must take over rival gang’s territories to spray painting their logo everywhere they can in the various districts of Tokyo-To.

Far Cry 3

The Far Cry series has always been about two things: open-ended gameplay and a unique setting that seems to change every game. For example, Far Cry was set on a tropical paradise, while Far Cry 2 was set in the plains of Africa, and both games gave you multiple ways to dispatch your enemies. Far Cry 3, releasing for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC, continues this trend. Even though the story is once again set on a tropical island, the island features many different locations; expect to be battling on sandy beaches and mountaintops in addition to the dense jungle atmosphere. The story follows Jason Brody, who has become trapped on the island, as a madman named Vaas, along with his crew, seek to end Jason’s life. Surviving the first attempt on his life by Vaas, Jason seeks revenge in this first-person shooter.

After Resident Evil 5, fans were unsure of what direction the next game could go in; Resident Evil 5 tied up many loose ends that existed since the first Resident Evil, providing finality to much of the series’ plot. While some fans expected a reboot of the series, Resident Evil 6 goes in the opposite direction by starting a new storyline with the same cast of characters. Series’ veterans Chris Redfield and Leon S. Kennedy return in what looks to be a new story arc for the Resident Evil series. When viruses start mutating the population in two different countries, it’s up to both characters to stop the virus and figure out who is spreading it. Fan favorite characters such as Sherry Birkin and Ashley Graham also return, giving all Resident Evil fans a reason to check Resident Evil 6 out when it releases on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC.
