It began in Africa

This Week’s Games

So, Resident Evil 5. It hasn’t turned out to be as good as everybody hoped, but it’s still worth a play through. It will undoubtedly be #1 next week though, regardless of the bounty of 7/10 review scores. Another game out this week that hasn’t scored as high as it might have done is Sonic and the Black Knight on Wii. Even Famitsu gave it a cussing and they’re usually pretty generous.

MySims Party also slips out on Wii and DS this week, along with a game based on the TV-series Grey’s Anatomy. The Wii version is only £16.99 at Game, which probably tells you all you need to know. If you are looking for a new game on the cheap though then take a look at the lovely Persona 4 on PlayStation 2, currently £14.96 on Amazon. It scored very highly when it was released in the US late last year. Metal Gear Solid 4 also goes cheap this week on PlayStation 3 with an early Platinum re-release.

There’s a fair bit out on DS too, although the only thing that will be of interest to anybody over the age of 12 is Puzzle Quest: Galactrix, the sequel to Puzzle Quest: Warlords.

Next week: MadWorld, Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars, Resistance: Retribution, WWE Legends of Wrestlemania, Broken Sword: Shadow of the Templars Directors Cut, Castlevania- Judgement, EA Sports Football Academy and the apparently quite good Henry Hatsworth in the Puzzling Adventure. Phew!
