When Sonic Mega Collection Plus was released on PlayStation 2 and Xbox, it managed to take the top spot in the chart, meaning that Sega Mega Drive Collection – reviewed here – could potentially ‘do the business’ for Sega. It’s only Â£14.99 with postage at Choices too. If it gets outsold by the dismal looking Little Britain: The Videogame – also out this week – then thereâ€™s going to be trouble.
On Nintendo DS there are a couple of curios: stylish but slightly dull RPG Contact, and New Zealand Story Revolution. Reviews suggest that the latter is far better than the rest of Rising Starâ€™s retro updates. Plus Tiki the Kiwi is uber cool.
Then on PSP thereâ€™s Dungeon Siege: Throne of Agony. Itâ€™s the first console effort in the long running series, and going by the screenshots it looks a lot better than the Untold Legends games. You can have up to four characters in a party, with one of them a pet.
Speaking of which, Ubisoft are releasing another two Nintendogs clones on DS this week, in the form of Pawly Pets: My Pet Hotel and Pawly Pets: My Vet Practice. Clearly Catz, Dogs, Hamsterz and Horsez didnâ€™t fill their animal husbandry quota for this financial year.
