SBK: 07 sadly doesn’t stand for Snow Boards Kids 07 but is instead based on the Superbike World Championship. Reviews suggest it’s quite good and it would be nice if it did well – publishers Black Bean Games haven’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 isn’t a bad little extra.
MinDStorm on DS – see what they did there – should probably be approached with caution. It’s another Brain Training clone from 505 Games, and their last, Professor’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 it’s more like a slow paced adventure game than proper Harvest Moon – there aren’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.
