When it comes to saving the world, it helps to be a little chicken.
Buena Vista Games brings the magic of Chicken Little, Disney's first fully animated 3D feature film, to PlayStation 2. Adventure as Chicken Little and his gang of misfit friends - Fish-Out-of-Water, Runt of the Litter and Abby - in a game which catapults you into the hair-raising adventures of the movie and beyond.
A swathe of cool gadgets await, with rocket packs, slingshots and hover boards helping Chicken out of sticky situations like alien invasions, spiralling asteroids, and corn field mazes. Saving the day takes more than an awesome arsenal of gadgets though; it takes friends and hero power.

The big-screen adaptation of CS Lewis' classic tale journeys through the wardrobe and into the magical world of PlayStation.
Walt Disney Pictures, Walden Media and Weta Workshop are set to bring the magic of CS Lewis' magical tale to the silver screen in 2005, and Traveller's Tales are doing the same for PlayStation 2 and PlayStation Portable.
Players will explore the frozen land of Narnia, a world locked in snow and ice for a hundred years by the power of a tyrannical Witch, and fulfil an ancient prophecy invoked by the mighty lion Aslan. One or two players can take on the mantle of four children - Peter, Susan, Edmund and Lucy - who must use their individual gifts and talents to solve puzzles and battle the Witch's minions. You are the only hope to save the good people of Narnia.

Konami adds a new dimension for the latest frenetic addition to its dastardly action shooter series.
Konami's tough-as-nails shoot 'em up returns to PS2, bringing with it a new character, towering bosses and a seemingly insurmountable new set of challenges. Unlike its 2D side-scrolling predecessor, Contra: Shattered Soldier, Neo Contra adds some depth to the manic proceedings onscreen with the introduction of stunningly detailed isometric 3D environments.
Guide original, grizzled Contra hero Bill Rizer or new boy Genbei Jaguer Yagyu, a mysterious samurai, through apocalyptic stages crawling with enemies, dodging attacks and letting your huge arsenal of powerful weapons do the talking. At the end of each unrelenting wave of enemies, you'll find one of Contra's huge, notoriously formidable bosses waiting for you.
Neo Contra's new 3D environments are fully interactive, and huge chunks of the landscape can be blown away altogether, resulting in a battlefield that's consistently changing and shifting. The new samurai character has his own distinct fighting style, giving you a choice as to how you want to tackle the game's legions of foes, and a new 'Hit Rate' system makes it easier to keep track of your scoring.
Capcom's mind-bendingly tricky platformer Maximo brings its sword-swinging, magic boxer short-wielding antics to PS2 for another bout of hack and slash action
After the brain-addlingly difficult original, Maximo returns for another bite of the action-platformer cherry with enhanced gameplay, polished graphics and upgraded underwear. Yup, the pants are back, and this time, the boxers do more than merely cover your modesty. But more on Maximo's multi-talented undercrackers later, the main reason to get yourself in a lather about Capcom's follow-up is undoubtedly the opportunity to level hordes of robo-skeletal bad guys, powered (once again) by the souls of the undead, using some impressive, not to mention hugely gratifying, combat mechanics.
Maximo's adventure begins sometime after the previous story, with the plucky hero and his sidekick 'Grim' (as in Reaper, natch) scouring the lands in search of Sophia, Max's one true love. Aww. The odd couple amble into a village that's been besieged by said robo-types - the Army of Zin - and discover that the only way to get stuff done is to dispense with these soul-powered automatons once and for all. That's where the ace fighting system comes in. Take on multiple opponents as Max using his trademark sword, and fell rampant robo-goons ten to the dozen. The more enemies you get rid of, the more opportunities you'll have to upgrade your weapon and gain new items, like the slow but pleasingly devastating combat hammer for instance. There's also the option to upgrade your shield for increased protection, and those crazy pants can be swapped out for an armour-clad version, and even treasure-seeking boxers. Handy.
While you're eradicating those pesky evil robo-creatures, it also pays to take time out to embark on the side-quests that the villagers give you; they'll help you earn more cash for upgrades and wotnot. It may have retained the somewhat unforgiving gameplay, but Maximo is still incredibly enjoyable, and once you've got past the initial frustration factor, you'll find it difficult to tear yourself away.
