This Week’s Games
EA continue to wring their The Lord of the Rings license for every last penny, releasing The Lord of the Rings: Conquest on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Nintendo DS and PC this week.
Itâ€™s by Pandemic – the Mercenaries and Full Spectrum Warrior people – but donâ€™t go thinking itâ€™s any good. GamesRadar has given it a right good kicking, calling it â€œan offensive parodyâ€ before scoring it a miserable 2 out of 10. Whatâ€™s going on at Pandemic? Mercenaries 2 ended up worse than the original, and their Dark Knight game was apparently canned due to quality issues.
Thereâ€™s only one other game out this week, and to be frank it’s hard to call it a game – itâ€™s My Chinese Coach, another one of Ubisoft’s language aids for the DS. I’m still hanging on for My Klingon Coach.
Next week: Skate 2, My Fitness Coach and a late appearance for Tomb Raider: Underworld on PlayStation 2.
