It shouldn’t be tricky to pick out what new releases take your fancy this week as there aren’t a lot of them.

SSX is the big one. A few online retailers are still calling it ‘SSX: Deadly Descents’ even though EA dropped the sub-heading a few months back.

Eurogamer surprised a few people by giving it 9/10. Other scores include 8.5 from Destructoid and 88% from GamesMaster magazine. “Between character leveling, equipment, hundreds of drops, and rivalries with friends, SSX is going to provide months of entertainment for most of us,” said Destructoid.

Wii owners have just one to consider – Mario Party 9. Nintendo Gamer described it as a “return to form” and gave it 80%. “Refreshing, but there’s potential for ever better things next time,” they also said. Somehow we don’t doubt that there will be a next time.

Rounding off this round-up are two budget-priced re-releases: Mortal Kombat Komplete Edition, which contains 4 extra characters including Freddy Krueger; and a Platinum/Classics re-release of Driver: San Francisco which Play are currently selling for a handsome £9.99.

Next week: Mass Effect 3 (PS3, 360, PC), Twisted Metal (PS3), Street Fighter X Tekken (PS3, 360), Metal Gear Solid: Snake Eater 3D (3DS), Asura’s Wrath (PS3, 360), Athletics Tournament (PS3, 360, Wii), Jane’s Advanced Strike Fighters (PS3, 360, PC), Unit 13 (PS Vita) and Calvin Tucker’s Farm Animal Racing (Wii).
