This Week’s Games

Aliens vs Predator, then. Reviews have been incredibly mixed – everything from a 5.5/10 from Gamespot to a 9/10 from the Official Australian PlayStation Magazine. People have been reporting that the face hugger that comes with the deluxe edition has arrived broken too, although Sega have promptly set up a website where people can ask for a replacement.

If AvP doesn’t take your fancy this week then unfortunately there isn’t much else out – just Guitar Hero: Van Halen on the three major formats, Dynasty Warriors: Strikeforce on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 and Karaoke Revolution on Wii.

The handhelds have some interesting stuff though – Half Minute Hero on PSP is an RPG split into thirty second chunks of gameplay while Ace Attorney: Miles Edgeworth Investigates on DS is a spin-off from Phoenix Wright. Bizarrely, Ubisoft seems to think releasing a Hello Kitty game (Hello Kitty Puzzle Party) on PSP is a good idea to make some money. I beg to differ. Releasing a game like SOCOM U.S. Navy SEALs: Fireteam Bravo 3 – which is also out today – is probably a safer bet.

Next week: Heavy Rain, Sonic and SEGA All-Stars Racing, Lips: Party Classics, SafarWii, Sky Crawlers: Innocent Aces, Undead Knights and White Knight Chronicles.
