Itâ€™s a brilliant week for new releases. Brilliant, if youâ€™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 thatâ€™s all you get this week. Itâ€™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 thereâ€™s nothing out next week – Zack & Wiki on Wii has slipped until 18th January.
