Thought Â£69.99 for Wii Fit was steep? EA’s Rock Band costs twice as much, although you do get drums, guitar and a mic. Game said they had trouble getting enough stock for pre-orders which goes to show that thereâ€™s demand despite the high price tag. Itâ€™s an Xbox 360-exclusive in Europe, at least for a while, but if you own a PlayStation 3 you could always import. Probably would turn out cheaper too.
Talking of cheaper, Battle of the Bands is out on Wii this week at a somewhat more affordable Â£24.99. Or Â£12.99 from Playâ€™s bank holiday sale. Reviews havenâ€™t been too shabby. Unlike Haze, which has had some very critical reviews. Like a 4.5 from IGN, who felt the need to point out that all the vehicles have the same horn noise. Eurogamer didnâ€™t like it either, giving it a poor 4. Ouch.
Next week: Enemy Territory: Quake Wars, GRID and some budget muck for Wii.
