Itâ€™s a busy week for releases, with the multiformat allegedly above average Spiderwick Chronicles being our tip for the top. Well, itâ€™s bound to make it into the top ten at least. Thereâ€™s also Turning Point: Fall of Liberty on 360 and PlayStation 3, which has been getting some appalling reviews, and FlatOut: Head On on PSP which is probably worth a look if you can stomach yet another PSP racer.
The Wii sees a slew of new games – 11 in fact – with three worthy of investigation. No More Heroes scored a 9 from Edge and 94% from the reliable N Gamer, while Harvest Moon Magical Melody – not to be confused with Tree of Tranquility, or whatever it ends up being called – is a Euro-exclusive as the GameCube version never made it out here. Then thereâ€™s strategic RPG Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn from the Advance Wars people. The rest of this weekâ€™s Wii offerings include another bowling sim, Bomberman Land and the less-than-full-price Star Trek Conquest.
On DS thereâ€™s the Pokemon-alike Dragon Quest Monsters: Joker, the nonsensically named Fish Tycoon from Eidos and Magic Made Fun from Nintendo themselves. The last comes with a pack of cards and teaches you how to perform magic tricks. The PlayStation 2 still manages to get a look in with the quirky 2D side-scrolling RPG Odin Sphere.
Thereâ€™s also a big Xbox 360 price-drop this week. The Arcade Core pack is down to Â£159.99, the Premium to Â£199.99 and the Elite to Â£259.99. Game has some quite good bundles, with you can see here.
