I was hoping some reviews of Sega’s Thor tie-in would be floating about prior to writing this week’s round up, but alas this isn’t the case. Chances are though the lack of press coverage is for a reason. Sega did send out copies of Virtua Tennis 4 in good time, however, with word on the street being that it’s not quite as good as Top Spin 4 but still pretty good.
You can probably guess what format Musiic Party: Rock the House is on. The website claims that it’s “The first music rhythm action title on the Wii console that does not require additional accessories” but I’m not convinced – Wii Music didn’t have any plastic tat bundled with it. The music selection sounds pleasingly mixed including tracks from Tina Turner, Madness, James Blunt and Judas Priest. £17.85 from TheHut seems to be the cheapest price online.
If you’re more of a dancer than a musician, Konami’s Dance Dance Revolution: Hottest Party 4 is also out this week on Wii. The previous games in the series weren’t bad at all, providing you’re into that type of thing.
This leaves us with Natalie Brooks – Treasure of the Lost Kingdom on DS, which would appear to be another one of those presumably cheap to produce hidden object games. Looks like there’s another one out next week too. Joy.
Next week: Steel Diver, Plants vs Zombies, Dangerous Hunts 2011, Guilty Gear XX Accent Core Plus, The First Templar, Hidden Mysteries: Salem Secrets and Youda Safari.
