Why did nobody tell us that there was a Telly Addicts game for the DS? Game has no details about it whatsoever, but Amazon has some lovely Noel Edmonds box-art. Thereâ€™s a load of other DS games out this week too including Tony Hawkâ€™s Proving Ground, CSI, The Simpsons – which comes on the largest DS cart available – Operation Vietnam and a wealth of licensed pap. Itâ€™s a blow to find that apparently alright Operation Vietnam is full price – over in the US it was super cheap.
Tony Hawkâ€™s Proving Ground and The Simpsons are also available on every other format this week. Universal opinion of The Simpsons appears to be that itâ€™s good looking and very funny, but has camera and control issues. The Wii version has some extra mini-games (Bartwings – a parody of Plotwings) while the DS version has a Homer virtual pet thing. Proving Ground is solid but looking very dated next to EAâ€™s magnificent skate, going by the reviews.
On 360 TimeShift has finally made it out – it was first due out over a year ago but changed publishers from Atari to Sierra. Ubisoft’s Naruto: Rise of Ninja isnâ€™t a conversion of a Japanese title but has rather been developed in the west and is worth a look. Then thereâ€™s Bladestorm which should appeal to Dynasty Warriors fans.
The humble PlayStation 2 is still giving out the goods – another Buzz! (Monster Rumble), another EyeToy game (Play Astro Zoo), another Syphon Filter (Dark Mirror) and yet another Spyro (The Eternal Night). The Wii version of Spyro isnâ€™t out until December, but itâ€™s unlikely that anybody cares – Super Mario Galaxy is out in two weeks.
