If Top Gear Reviewed High-Performance Starships

It stands to reason that if the world of Chris Roberts' ambitious crowd-funded space sim Star Citizen has television commercials for new starships, it would likely have its own space-themed version of Top Gear as well. Here's what that looks like. » 9/13/14 12:00pm 9/13/14 12:00pm

Seriously, How Are These Real Video Game Graphics?

The Next Batman Game Is Arkham Knight

A Game For People Who Want To Destroy Cars

Next Car Game (working title, duh) has races in it. And challenges. They're just window dressing, though, because if you're playing this game right, you'll never see the finish line. Nobody will. » 1/15/14 10:00pm 1/15/14 10:00pm

Yup, This Is Still The World's Most Attractive Racing Game

At this point, I'm convinced that Project CARS isn't actually a racing game. It's a playable art installation that lets you take pretty pictures of cars. And things other than cars. » 12/31/13 8:00am 12/31/13 8:00am

Gran Turismo 6 vs A PC Racing Game

Normally when we show a comparison video like this, it's comparing the same game across platforms. But this one's different. It's two games across two platforms, which may sound pointless, but remember, these are driving games we're talking about. We can get away with it. » 12/09/13 12:00am 12/09/13 12:00am

Need for Speed Rivals: The Kotaku Review

Everyone in this year's Need For Speed—racers and cops both—is an asshole. Neither side is likable. Thank God. It's incredibly freeing to be a total, speed-obsessed jerk, especially when it's accompanied by amazing visuals and intense velocity. Way to welcome us to next-gen, Need For Speed Rivals. » 11/15/13 4:00pm 11/15/13 4:00pm

Need for Speed Rivals Looks Amazing Whether You Play It on PC or PS4

For one moment, the gap between playing a game on PC and on console seemed razor-thin. I played Need for Speed Rivals on both PC and PS4 and the two versions of EA’s upcoming racing game were virtually indistinguishable. What I saw was impressive no matter what machine it was running on. » 10/18/13 1:15pm 10/18/13 1:15pm

I Can't Tell If These Are Game Screens Or Photos Of Cars

I Can't Believe There Is A Video Game That Looks This Good

I mean, I know it's a driving game, a genre that's long had the luxury of looking better than other games, thanks to the fact they only have to render a track and some cars. But still. Look at this. » 7/07/13 9:00pm 7/07/13 9:00pm

The World's Coolest Iron Man Game Is Still GTA IV—and It's Even Better

Five months ago, modder H1Vltg3 gave us an Iron Man script for Grand Theft Auto IV, and it was already loads better than the official Iron Man moviegame of 2008. With another five months' worth of polish, it's even better. » 5/25/13 3:00pm 5/25/13 3:00pm

F1 2012: The Kotaku Review

This past week, I haven't felt as helpless or as vexed behind the wheel since I was 15 years old and trying to divine the magical balance between clutch and gas pedal that actually sent my mother's BMW 325e forward along our farm's gravel road. Each time the vehicle shuddered and stalled out, I was left to… » 9/19/12 5:15pm 9/19/12 5:15pm

This Lamborghini Reventon PC Case Looks Very, Very Fast

There's a lot to love about the Lamborghini Reventon, including its exotic good looks and blistering 3 second sprint from zero to 60 mph. However, its $1.6 million price tag and exclusivity puts it well out of the reach of anyone who's not an obscenely wealthy Saudi prince or Batman. » 9/08/12 3:00pm 9/08/12 3:00pm
