Medal of Honor Airborne Preview

Written by igcompany on Saturday, 21 November 2009 19:49.

Take to the skies in Medal of Honor Airborne™, where you'll drop into grueling ground attacks in a bid to turn the tide of WWII. Begin each mission in the air above Axis controlled battlefields, then make your mark in the largest airborne operations in history.

Starting with your jump from a C-47 transport plane, every choice you make can seal your fate. In the air, control your parachute to select a landing spot that brings you the greatest strategic advantage. Follow the green smoke to recommended landing areas where Allied forces will be waiting, or go it alone by landing on rooftops or balconies.

But craft your strategy carefully: every move you make-from your choice of landing spot to the enemies you engage on the ground-will determine your success in the mission, and whether or not you are truly one of the Airborne elite.

SEGA Rally Preview

Written by igcompany on Sunday, 15 November 2009 10:32.

The legend of Rally games is back as SEGA Rally motors onto next-generation consoles this autumn promising to push the boundaries of the Rally genre to a new level. A true next-gen game, SEGA Rally looks and plays better than ever offering fans bumper-to-bumper, heart stopping, and adrenalin pumping action sure to induce a grin to player's faces.

Developed by SEGA's own Racing Studio, a handpicked team made up of the cream of the industry's racing development talent, the return of the king of arcade rally games promises to set a new precedent on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC.

SEGA Rally retains the looping courses of its predecessors rather than the customary point-to-point of many other titles. This, amongst other features, helps to ensure close competitive race action with rival cars all vying to be first over the finishing line to pick up the most points.

With over 30 licensed high performance cars to race across a multitude of rich, vibrant and exotic environments, finding the right car for the right surface can put you one step ahead of the opposition.

Accessible and realistic car handling guarantees a fun and rewarding experience as the signature SEGA Rally power slides are still a feature.

Each environment is based in a colourful, exotic location, with each track full of charm and character mimicking varied environments from around the globe. Surfaces vary from course to course, and the track deformation feature ensures that each surface cuts up and ruts differently making each surface a challenge to master.

The circuits will feature an interactive environment incorporating surface deformation and smashable scenery, which will cause the experience to vary each lap.

As the race goes on, your car will get muddier and dirtier, with trips through the water cleaning your chassis off again. Don't get caught behind your opponent on a dusty track, your visibility becomes impaired, which makes taking that next corner perfectly all the harder.

The result is a dynamic, multi-layered, game structure that produces an exponentially huge number of game play possibilities, creating a game that at heart is a serious and rewarding driving game, but with the game play sensibilities and fun of an Arcade Racer.

SEGA Rally - It's back!

Six Beautiful Environments:
Pushing technology to the very limits, SEGA Rally shines as one of the most beautiful modern day racing games around. Radiating a pure 'SEGA' look and feel, players will be able to race through a selection of stunning environments including Tropical, Alpine and Canyon settings. Players will discover that each environment holds a varying amount of looping tracks, each with their own distinct set of features to push them to the limit.

Advanced Track Deformation:
Fully deformable track surfaces ensure no two laps, let alone a race, will be the same. For the first time ever players can experience the thrills of racing across surfaces that evolve and change depending on where they and their opponents' wheels drive, power-slide and grip. Players will learn the skills needed to get the most out of the tracks and use the deformation to their favour in this unique racing experience.

30+ Hand Selected Vehicles:
A selection of hand picked vehicles to whet the appetite of even the most ardent rally fan, mixed in with some very surprising and exciting inclusions. Players will have to experiment with different cars and tyres to find the right combination for the right tracks to work their way to the top of the SEGA Rally Championship.

Four Different Game Modes:
Championship, Time Attack, Multiplayer and Quick Race are available for players to dive into and show off their racing skills.

Championship - Within the Championship Mode are three different vehicle class championships. Players begin with access to only the Premier Championship and must unlock the others. Each vehicle class championship contains three leagues with only the first being available at the start. Players do not need to complete and win every event to unlock further classes and championships; they'll only need to acquire enough points to progress. Players can revisit tricky tracks once they've honed their skills and for those players who do complete every event they will be rewarded with exciting bonuses and secrets.


Offline Multiplayer - Within the Offline Multiplayer mode players can easily race friends Head to Head using the split-screen option.

Quick Race - Allows players to immediately jump into the action. They can select any of the cars or levels they've unlocked to race in and can setup the race options to their preference.
