This Week’s Games
If you’re lucky enough to be going away on holiday this year then Dragon Quest IX: Sentinels of the Starry Skies on DS is an essential purchase for those long waits at the airport. It’s about as good as RPGs get, with just about everybody giving it 9/10.
On Wii this week there’s Free Running, which was first released on PlayStation 2 way back in 2007. If you thought the best bits of the Prince of Persia games was the wall running bits then it might be of interest. It’s only £14.99 on Play.
North American Hunting Extravaganza is also out on Wii and is making me wonder what’s worse – hunting games or dancing games? It must be a close call. Anyway, this one looks like it should be avoided – it only has a 20% average review score. And if you play it, you’ll make baby Jesus cry.
Cats & Dogs: The Revenge of Kitty Galore on DS rounds up this week’s releases. It’s a movie tie-in, so obviously it’s going to be awful.
Next week: Starcraft II: Wings of Liberty, Reel Fishing: Angler’s Dream, We Sing Encore and Titanic Hidden Mysteries. Huzzah!
