Who said PS3 and 360 owners get all the M-rated fun? The Wii-only prequel to EA's 2008 sci-fi/survival-horror epic, due September 29, is a shooter set on rails.
The minor quibbles we have with Free YouTube to MP3 Converter have nothing to do with its functionality. This effective freeware is ready to go right out of the box, but can be easily customized by the user.
No effort has been made to dress up the program's utilitarian interface, which consists of seven large buttons, a few fields, and a drop-down menu. A plain text box advises users to paste URLs in the field, and this is all the onscreen guidance you'll need. Once you see the video title in the field, you click Download and the … Read more
Converting PDFs to Word-compatible formats while not paying for the privilege nor getting scammed can feel a bit like herding cats. Free PDF to Word Doc Converter gets a few things wrong, but eventually will land you the DOC output you want.
Impressively, it offers one of the cleanest and most accurate free PDF-to-DOC conversions around. Users can change the output path and name, convert an entire document or just specific pages, and ditch images in the source PDF if need be. From there, it goes a bit downhill. The option to open the output DOC in WordPad didn't … Read more
If you find yourself needing to share sensitive data with other users by e-mail or on a portable device, this easy-to-use app provides a handy solution.
Silver Key launches a three-paned interface similar to many e-mail clients. However, using this app is so easy you can perform all your encrypting tasks without opening the interface, as we proved in our tests. Quick context-menu access and drag-and-drop functionality made encrypting files a simple process. We also liked that we could choose not to include a self-extracting executable with the encrypted output file, and that recipients didn't need to have Silver … Read more

Thanks to its easy-to-use interface, this free file compression tool makes it a snap to unzip files.
The Extractor opens with a panel-style interface that is clear-cut enough for all users to understand. We especially liked the drag-and-drop functionality that let us quickly add ZIP and RAR files. We also like that the user specifies the output file. Once we clicked Go, the program instantly unzipped our file and placed the contents into our designated output folder. Our favorite feature was the Preset option that let us assign a preset task for each output folder after unzipping the file. The … Read more
ExtractNow could use a bit of sprucing up. The dead-simple and cheetah-quick installation brings you to an expanse of white that sits on top of four buttons. That's it. It's not an interface that sells the feature set, but it's the features that you're going to be most interested in.
The program should appeal to users who handle a high volume of archives, because all it does is extract archive contents. The four buttons, Settings, History, Clear, and Extract, lay out the basics. Click Settings and a window pops up to entice you with options. From … Read more
