Games for May 09

X-Men Origins: Wolverine (Xbox 360 PS3 PC)

Based on the upcoming motion picture of the same name, Wolverine, the game will allow players to slice and dice their way through legions of enemies as the angsty regenerating mutant, Wolverine. Unlike previous Wolverine games, developer Raven Software is pushing the limits as far as violence and gore are concerned so expect tons of maiming and decapitation a la Ninja Gaiden II.

Bionic Commando (Xbox 360 PS3)

A sequel to the NES game of the same name, Bionic Commando is an action platformer in which you step into the bionic boots of Nathan Spencer as he brings to justice terrorists who annihilated his entire city by detonating an experimental weapon in it. Swing, grapple and rain down some serious pain using your bionic arm – a mechanical tentacle of sorts that’s attached to your body bionically. Head over here for our hands-on preview.

UFC 2009 Undisputed (Xbox 360 PS3)

Two grown men beating the crap out of each other in a hexagon is basically what the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is all about. The game off course will allow you to step into that hexagon to challenge some of the most dangerous men in the world.

inFamous (PS3)

After destroying your city - by mistake off course - you find out that you now have superhuman powers that allow you to wield electricity as a weapon. You use these new found powers to save the denizens of your now devastated city from the nefarious criminals that roam the streets. At the same time you also have to figure out who set you up, and how in God’s name did you end up tearing down your city. And you thought your life was complicated.

Damnation (Xbox 360 PS3 PC)

In Damnation you’ll be transported to an alternate Steampunk Universe during the Civil War where a group of rebels strives to protect the land against a tyrannical leader. The USP of the game is that it combines regular third person shooting along with a certain amount of platforming, hence the tagline "A Shooter gone Vertical".

Terminator Salvation (Xbox 360 PS3 PC)

Based on the upcoming flick of the same name, Salvation will allow players to fight off the hostile Cyborg invasion in the year 2016 in a futuristic rendition of Los Angeles. Nothing too special about this game other than the fact that it looks exactly like Gears of War and will offer up to two player co-op. Sadly the game won’t be releasing in India officially yet so you’ll have to make do from sites like Game or Play-Asia.

Fuel (Xbox 360 PS3 PC)

A free roaming post apocalyptic racer in which players not only have to survive races but they’ll have to survive the hostile climate itself. What this basically means is that while racing from one point to another don’t be surprised if you find your car hurled hundred of feet into the air by a tornado. As far as vehicle selection is concerned you’ll get to fiddle around with 2 wheelers, 3 wheelers, 4 wheelers as well as hovercraft.
