SBK: 07 sadly doesnâ€™t stand for Snow Boards Kids 07 but is instead based on the Superbike World Championship. Reviews suggest itâ€™s quite good and it would be nice if it did well – publishers Black Bean Games havenâ€™t had a hit yet despite their last few racing games being decent.
Also on PlayStation 2 this is week the very long-winded SOCOM U.S Navy Seals Combined Assault. It doesn’t look any different from the last, although it does contains the full SOCOM 3: U.S. Navy SEALs multiplayer online game, which isnâ€™t a bad little extra.
MinDStorm on DS – see what they did there – should probably be approached with caution. Itâ€™s another Brain Training clone from 505 Games, and their last, Professorâ€™s Brain Trainer: Logic / Memory, was ruddy awful. Have a read of this blurb from the back of MinDStorm: â€œAdjust the questions according to the circumstances of the player providing enjoyable game play in any situationâ€. Righty ho.
Game has Innocent Life: A Futuristic Harvest Moon down for release this week but it looks like it was actually released last week. As PSP games go, it looks quite interesting. Eurogamer said itâ€™s more like a slow paced adventure game than proper Harvest Moon – there arenâ€™t even any crops to water or girls to impress. No idea if it has robot cows though.
Oh, and the headline? Pony Friends on DS. Yep.
