This Week’s Games
There’s bound to be something out this week to tickle your fancy. Street Fighter IV has been getting excellent reviews and it’s also surprisingly cheap online – £27.99 at HMV seems a sensible buy. 50 Cent: Blood on the Sand is also said to be jolly good fun (as 50 Cent himself probably wouldn’t say) while RPG Disgaea 3 is about as good as turn-based titles get.
There are also couple of curios for Wii – a tardy conversion of Rogue Trooper (the blue chap from the 2000 AD comics) and Nerf N-Strike, which comes with a Nerf gun you can clip a Wii Remote into. Awesome. Konami’s Eledees get another outing, this time on DS, while on Xbox 360 there’s Race Pro and X-Blades – a Heavenly Sword lookalike from an unknown Russian developer.
And if none of those float your boat, then there’s bound to be something on the Sega Mega Drive Ultimate Collection. You can’t beat a bit of Streets of Rage 2.
Next week: Killzone 2, Halo Wars, Dead Rising: Chop Till You Drop and Silent Hill: Homecoming.
