More murder mystery from Ubisoft

Just as the Crime Scene Investigation television series show no signs of running out of steam, so Ubisoft's video game adaptations continue to find fresh corpses and accompanying mysteries to solve.

Raving Rabbids Travel in Time Revealed

Heading to Wii in a washing machine

Ubisoft has an impressive record when it comes to Rabbids titles on Wii: since the console's launch in 2006 we've seen no fewer than four outings for the chaotic white bunnies, with last year's Rabbids Go Home the most recent and very decent title. Now, straight from E3, Ubisoft has announced another new title for Wii, Raving Rabbids Travel in Time. Although we..

The Office of Film and Literature Classification says so, but which ones?

Red Steel 2 Met Ubi's Sales Expectations

More accurate figures sadly lacking

It may have failed to set the charts alight but Red Steel 2 still performed in line with Ubisoft's sales estimates.

Tom Clancy's HAWX 2 Will Buzz Wii Owners

The next best thing to Top Gun

If you dream of flying virtual modern-day fighter jets, the Wii probably isn't the console for you, but its line-up just got a little bit brighter with the announcement that a follow-up to last year's mega-selling Tom Clancy's HAWX will arrive on Wii later this year.

Ubisoft Slices Sales Predictions for Red Steel 2 in Two

500,000 still a big figure, though

We've been keeping a close eye on Ubisoft's upcoming East-meets-West shooter Red Steel 2 - seriously, we have some of the world's best content on it, y'know - which is now due for launch in March of this year.

It's official: Henry wears "a right natty vest"

Here at Nintendo Life we’re very excited about the imminent release of No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle and it seems Ubisoft have been reading our Christmas wish lists as they have now launched a dedicated web site (not to be visited by those who are easily offended!) The site is really rather good if a little low on content just yet though..

Rabbids Race Through London

Souped-up trolley hitting UK cities

Game-themed cars are nothing new - everyone from Pikachu to Sonic has had their face plastered on a car over the years - but a game-themed shopping trolley capable of 70mph is definitely something we haven't seen before. Add a huge Rabbid figure to the back - in mid-BWAAAH pose, of course - and drive the trolley through the streets of London and you've got one of..

New build, new features, new joy

Since our first hands-on play with Red Steel 2 all the way back in June - yes, it really was that long ago - we've had two more chances to get to grips with the game, the most recent at this week's Eurogamer EXPO where a new build was on display. How's the title coming along? Very, very nicely. Our play-through was...

Might and Magic: Clash of Heroes

Might and magic and myths and... Meteos?!

The DS has loads of good puzzle games - Picross, Tetris, Meteos - and some fantastic strategy titles too - Fire Emblem and Advance Wars chief among them. But it could certainly do with more great puzzle strategy games; titles that blend the addictive action of matching coloured objects with the cerebral challenge of conquering enemies and planning attacks..

C.O.P. The Recruit

Take the beat to the streets

C.O.P. The Recruit was announced back at E3 in June, and quickly marked itself out as one to watch by promising an open world experience unlike anything on DS. Now we've had chance to grab a few minutes with the title, does it live up to the hype or is it lagging behind Chinatown Wars? The first thing you'll notice on loading up C.O.P. is that it looks pretty. Very,..

Rabbids Go Home

Put this in your trolley!

There's only one possible conclusion to be drawn from Rabbids Go Home - it's mental. Anyone involved in its development should probably be sectioned under the Mental Health Act, such is the scale of the crazy acts featured in this first traditional adventure game for the Rabbids. Of course, if you've been following our exclusive Behind the Scenes Developer's Blog you'll..
