I’m not sure whatâ€™s going on with Game’s ‘new release’ section – the only version of Call of Duty 4 they list as available from today is the DS one, while last month they totally forgot about PES 2008. It definitely is out on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 though, and well done to Activision for getting it out on both formats simultaneously. If you can stomach another first person shooter then go for it – many websites and magazines have claimed it to be game of the year. The DS version should be good too – itâ€™s by the people behind Geist on GameCube.
Looks like thereâ€™s a couple of WWE Smackdown vs Raw 2008 special editions doing the rounds – Play have a â€˜Dirty Editionâ€™ with a red t-shirt, calendar and other guff, while Game have a â€˜High Flyerâ€™ edition with a different shirt, postcards and guide. I donâ€™t know why itâ€™s only the 360 version that gets these special packs. Again, the DS version looks surprisingly good. Itâ€™s in 3D at least.
After last weekâ€™s release of Telly Addicts on DS thereâ€™s a second helping of Noel Edmunds in the form of a Deal or No Deal game. Thereâ€™s also another three (yes, three) Mega Man games out, a sequel to Hamsterz – which we actually reviewed and quite liked – and EA Playground which is also out on Wii. Review scores havenâ€™t been too hot for that one – NGamer only gave it 39%. Go for Endless Ocean instead – you can never have enough scuba diving games.
Game also list three new LCD games from Nintendo, including one based on Harry Potter. Odd.
