This Week’s Games
If it wasnâ€™t for FIFA 09, this week would be an absurdly quiet one for new releases, with Zubo, SimCity Creator, Phoenix Wright and Dancing Stage SuperNOVA 2 being the only other titles.
Supermarkets are having a mini price-war with FIFA this weekend – ASDA are selling the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions for Â£29.99, while Tesco are selling it for Â£32. Blockbusters meanwhile are doing it for Â£34.99 with a free football and Â£5 off any other game. The Wii version? Apparently that isnâ€™t out this week.
Zubo is another one of EAâ€™s efforts and Iâ€™m surprised by the lack of publicity. Itâ€™s by the Burnout developers Criterion and boasts some of the most impressive 3D graphics on the system. When it was first announced EA planned to do a toy line and all sorts, so who knows why theyâ€™ve pushed it out with barely a whisper? Could be down to with the gameâ€™s quality I suppose…
Next week: Lego Batman, Fracture and Lost in Blue 3.
