Thereâ€™s another game based on World War II out this week, but itâ€™s not a first person shooter or even an RTS – itâ€™s a new Castlevania for Nintendo DS. Itâ€™s still based on the resurrection of Dracula, only now there are zombie soldiers to contend with. Reviews suggest that itâ€™s pretty decent, although not that different from the last half a dozen 2D Castlevanias. You should buy it though – Castlevania games always hold their price.
Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter EX Plus Alpha 2 on 360 is a indeed a war game, however. This one is set in Mexico in 2014, and if you buy it from Game you get a free exclusive weapon that can be downloaded via a code. Itâ€™ll probably be quite cool to show it off online. Unless itâ€™s flipping useless. Also on 360: Atariâ€™s Bullet Witch, one of the few Japanese-developed 360 titles.
On PlayStation 2 thereâ€™s the budget priced Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories Zero 3 Upper. Rockstar havenâ€™t put out much in the way of publicity for this – it hasnâ€™t even been on the cover of the Official PlayStation 2 magazine. IGN says that the conversion is â€œsloppyâ€ and that the on-foot combat hasnâ€™t been fixed. The really very late The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift also skids onto shelves. Despite being published by EA there have been very few adverts or press attention for this either. Probably because itâ€™s meant to be dross.
