The adage that cheaters never win has never applied to video-game fanatics. From Game Genie to Game Shark, the cheater always comes out on top, and the GamesRadar app looks to give gamers a mobile edge with an extremely robust selection of cheat codes and strategy guides.

Robust is actually probably an understatement for the selection of cheats that GamesRadar supplies. The app description boasts that it contains info for more than 8,600 games, and that’s easy to believe. Although the platform selection criteria only lists systems as far back as PlayStation 2, there are plenty of PlayStation, Gamecube and even Dreamcast cheats here.

For those more concerned with PS3 and Xbox360 games, you’re well-covered, as well. You can easily search by title or browse by the game’s first letter through a wide array of cheats and guides.

The best part about GamesRadar might be its ease of use. After all, looking up a strategy guide for a game, and then having to repeatedly search for it, would be cumbersome at best, but each piece of information in the GamesRadar app can be bookmarked for easy access.

About the only thing that could improve GamesRadar would be some way to search through the text of the strategy guides. After all, rarely do people play a game with a guide attached to their hip. More likely, they’re stuck at a certain point in the game, and need a little assistance. Finding the spot in the guide they need is much easier if they’re able to look for some key phrase.

That missing bit aside, the selection and ease of use of GamesRadar is truly impressive. Anyone looking to get an edge on the game they’re playing would find this app essential. But be careful what you wish for. With an app like this you’ll be going through games at a much faster pace.
