This Week’s Games
There’s no Bond movie this year yet there’s not one but two James Bond games out this week. If the early reviews are to go by then it’s GoldenEye 007 on Wii that’s the one to spend your golden coins on.
GoldenEye 007 scored a lofty 9 on IGN but they only gave James Bond 007: Blood Stone a 5. Eurogamer also gave Blood Stone an average score, calling it a “forgettable weekend diversion” and nothing more. A few other websites have been a little bit more generous with their scores but not by much.
For those who haven’t given up on the PSP yet there’s the pretty good, if a little predictable, God of War: Ghost of Sparta and Football Manager 2011.
The DS gets Pokémon Ranger: Guardian Signs while PlayStation 3 owners are being treated to the Move-enabled Time Crisis Razing Storm. Both of these are probably alright, if, again, a little predictable.
There isn’t a whole lot else out apart from kid’s games, and for the curious here they are in list form: Defendin DePenguin, Cars Toon: Mater’s Tall Tales, Disney Channel All Star Party, Zhu Zhu Pets: Kung Zhu, Zhu Zhu Pets: Wild Bunch and Imagine Fashion Paradise.
Next week: Oh man – it’s a big one. (Breathe in) Call of Duty: Black Ops, Kinect Adventures, Kinect Sports, Kinectimals, Motion Sports, Sonic Free Riders, Kinect Joy Ride, Dance Central, DanceEvolution, Fighters Uncaged, The Biggest Loser Ultimate Workout, Crossboard 7, Sonic Colours, Cooking Mama World: Babysitting Mama, Cooking Mama World: Hobbies and Fun, Beyblade: Metal Fight, Doctor Who: Return to Earth, Doctor Who: Evacuation Earth, We Sing Robbie Williams, Dance Paradise, Cabela Big Game Hunter 2010 and HAWK 2 on Wii (Breathe out). Three games with the world ‘dance’ in the title? Ubisoft has a lot to answer for.
