Where This Week’s Game Are
It’s the Wii that has the most interesting games out this week – the lovely 2D adventure game Muramasa: The Demon Blade and Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles, which is apparently a lot better than the first one. You can also get it in a pack with a Wii Zapper for an extra tenner. Or you could go down to Poundland and get a third-party gun holster for a quid. Then there’s futuristic racer Wheelspin from legendary developer Archer Maclean. Despite lots of potential, US reviews weren’t very good.
On Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC there’s Rogue Warrior, which has nothing to do with 2000 AD’s blue chap. There are no reviews on Gamerankings yet, which tells you everything you need to know. Also: some online retailers are selling it for under £20 already.
This week’s movie tie-in is Where The Wild Things Are: The Videogame, featuring plenty of horrible looking trolls. It looks like your standard movie tie-in stuff, with reviews being around the 5/10 mark. Next week’s Avatar game is looking much better.
Next Week: James Cameron’s Avatar: The Game, Tony Hawk: Ride, Summon Night: Twin Age and The Saboteur (RIP Pandemic).
