Dark, Brooding…and Fast!
Dashiell Hammett never wrote detective thrillers like this, but HP Lovecraft did. Call of Cthulhu: Dark Corners of the Earth (PC, Xbox) is a first-person horror game drawn from Lovecraft’s stories of evil, psychic possession, and mythical worlds. The game drops players into a New England town during the 1920s and then artfully subjects them to hallucinations, panic attacks, vertigo, and paranoia as they attempt to unravel a mystery.

Exhilarating in a much more conventional sense is IHRA Professional Drag Racing 2005 (PC, PS2, Xbox). Single-race arcade and 12-race simulation modes are available, as are two-player splitscreen and multiplayer online races. An extensive roster of cars and drivers from professional-level IHRA racing are featured in Top Fuel, Pro Mod, Pro Stock, and Alcohol Funny Car categories.

Bethesda’s sister division Vir2l Studios is introducing four cellphone games: TES Travels: Shadowkey (N-Gage), Ducati Extreme, Fill-Up, and AMF Extreme Bowling.
