This Week’s Games
The chart should be interesting next week – both God of War III and Metro 2033 are out from tomorrow. THQ’s FPS has been getting decent reviews, including an 8 from Eurogamer and a 9 from GamesRadar. Eurogamer gave Kratos’ new adventure a 9 – “it includes the absolute best dog-kicking puzzle you’ll ever see”, they said.
Command & Conquer 4: Tiberian Twilight should be of interest to PC owners. Well, in theory anyway – it doesn’t appear to be a brilliant comeback for the series. The average review score at the moment is 69%. Dragon Age: Origins – Awakening (also out on consoles) seems like a safer bet. Capcom’s MotoGP 09/10 has apparently had a lot more effort put into it than the last iteration, so that might be worth a look too.
A trio of Wii games for your perusal – Fragile Dreams: Farewell Ruins of the Moon, It’s My Circus and Scene It? Twilight. Fragile Dreams is the only one worth talking about, for the obvious reason. It’s a Wii-exclusive postapocalyptic RPG developed by Eternal Sonata team tri-Crescendo. IGN thought it was alright, scoring it 6.7
Next week: Just Cause 2, Pokemon Heart Gold/Soul Silver, Prison Break: The Conspiracy, Red Steel 2, Resonance of Fate, Batman: Arkham Asylum Game Of The Year Edition, BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger, How to Train your Dragon, Infinite Space and Last Rebellion
