It’s a brilliant week for new releases. Brilliant, if you’ve been waiting for Spyro: The Eternal Night on Wii, Beowulf and The Golden Compass on PSP, Mr. Bean on PlayStation 2 and The Orange Box on PlayStation 3. Because that’s all you get this week. It’s like the annual summer game drought all over again.
Bad things are being said about The Orange Box, mostly in relation to the loading times (though we’ve watched side-by-side comparisons and barely noticed a difference between the PS3 and 360 versions). So far the average review score on GameRankings is 78%, compared to a nice 96% on Xbox 360. Only three places have presently reviewed it, though.
Looks like there’s nothing out next week – Zack & Wiki on Wii has slipped until 18th January.
