After last weekâ€™s chaotic release schedule things have calmed down somewhat this week, with Final Fantasy Tactics: The War of the Lions on PSP being the only highlight. Both EDGE and Eurogamer gave it a 9, with the latter claiming it to be â€œGorgeous, complex, well-written and beautifully presentedâ€.
Thereâ€™s a couple of CSI games out for fans of the show though – CSI 3: Dimension of Murder on PlayStation 2 and CSI: Hard Evidence on Xbox 360. Bizarrely itâ€™s Hard Evidence thatâ€™s coming to Wii later in the year. Elsewhere EAâ€™s yearly sporting influx continues with Madden 08 on PlayStation 3 and Tiger Woods 08 and NBA Live 08 on PSP.
Glory Days 2 on DS is another game suffering from chronic box-art syndrome – theyâ€™ve actually used this art for the press adverts too – and weâ€™re sure that Virgin could have done better with the box-art for the on-rails shooter Dead n Furious. If youâ€™re after a new DS game then go import Chibi-Robo: Park Patrol and/or Zelda: Phantom Hourglass. Theyâ€™re both out now in the US and will cost you less than the UK releases too.
Next week looks better – Project Gotham Racing 4, Crash of the Titans and Star Wars: Renegade Squadron are all due.
