If youâ€™ve managed to re-mortgage your house to buy a PlayStation 3 this week then youâ€™ll no doubt want some games to go with it. Some of the proposed launch titles have been pushed back a couple of weeks – F.E.A.R, Oblivion and Splinter Cell: Double Agent of note – but thereâ€™s still plenty to get your teeth into, even if there are no obvious system-sellers in the line-up.
The generic looking Resistance has a very comprehensive multiplayer mode, while Motorstorm is meant to be quite fun. Virtua Fighter 5 and Virtua Tennis 3 have been getting some good reviews, while you canâ€™t go wrong with Fight Night Round 3, Ridge Racer 7 or Call of Duty 3. Just make sure you avoid Sonic the Hedgehog, Genji and Gundam: Target in Sight. Theyâ€™re meant to be a bit poo. Edge didnâ€™t like Formula One either.
Ubisoftâ€™s multiformat Turtles tie-in is also out this week. Surprisingly it appears that the Game Boy Advance version is the one to go for – IGN claim itâ€™s the best scrolling beat â€™em up theyâ€™ve played in years. N Gamer say the GameCube and Wii versions look half-finished, and apparently the 360 version isnâ€™t much of a leap over the last-gen iterations in terms of visuals. IGN say itâ€™s possible to unlock all 1,000 Gamerpoints in under four hours so itâ€™ll probably be snapped by those looking for an instant score boost.
If the popularity of Zoo Tycoon on DS is anything to go by then Theme Park DS might be a steady seller. It looks like theyâ€™ve used the PC original as source material and not the shrunken down SNES/Mega Drive one. And if youâ€™re still sticking with your PlayStation 2 then Burnout Dominator is probably worth a look. Whoever decided to take the crash junctions out though needs to be poked with a big stick. In the face.
