Issue 18 of HGZine is out now

Issue 18 of HGZine is out now for handheld gamers everywhere. It has the full review of Guitar Hero on Tour, the completely re-imagined version of Guitar Hero for handhelds, complete with its own controller. It also features reviews of all the latest games for DS and PSP, including Lego Indiana Jones, Wall-E, Narnia: Prince Caspian, Wacky Races and more.

If it's preview you're after, look no further either. We have an extensive preview of Echochrome, the new Sony PSP game that offers a unique game experience. It's Portalesque (yes, we just invented a word) in its inventiveness and is bound to have as many fans as people who say "I don't get it". Well, we do and we love it.

Then there's an exclusive interview for Spyro: Dawn of the Dragon where we see the new game features and enemies, plus Ninjatown, The Sims 2 Apartment Pets, which proves that there's more to a game than a name, and Igor, Brave: Shamen's Challenge, plus many more.

Reeves admits PSP needs more new games

Sony Computer Entertainment Europe president David Reeves has admitted that the PlayStation Portable is suffering from a lack of new games titles in the region.

Although the company has its Go! Explore sat-nav application, and cross-platform functions with the PlayStation 3, at its recent PlayStation Day the only new PSP games mentioned during the hour and a half presentation were Echocrome and Buzz! Quiz Master.

Full Interview with Matt Martin

HGZine Issue 16: Guitar Hero on Tour, SBK 2008, Gauntlet, Space Invaders

In this latest issue of HGZine, you'll find a fantastic combination of the old (revitalised) and the new. There's an interview and review for SBK 2008, and fantastic previews of WWE Smackdown vs RAW 2009, Soul Bubbles, Doctor Who, and masses of others. Then there're previews of the new version of Gauntlet and Space Invaders. Now, some old skoolers may well be shivering at the thought of these, but actually, hang on because both Gauntlet and Space Invaders are looking pretty good. Download the issue here.
And then there's Guitar Hero on Tour. How can GH fit on a DS, we hear you cry? With a brand new controller that fits onto the GBA slot. See how the new game and controller are looking inside.

Issue 15 of HGZine is out now!

The headline of this issue is Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood. So, when you think Sonic, your mind probably doesn't immediately leap to the idea of an RPG game. And, when you've got your head around that idea, you're probably asking yourself who will be developing this little title. Bioware, that's who. Bioware, the genius behind the best RPG games of all time: Baldur's Gate, KOTOR, Mass Effect - you get the picture. And we've got an exclusive developer interview on how the game is shaping up.

It's interview-tastic in this issue, with a chin wag with the developer of Final Fantasy: Crisis Core and the developers of SEGA Superstars Tennis, including the huge 26 minutes original audio interview to listen to, inside the mag itself.
