Mad as a hatter

This Week’s Games

That headline is a apt one as both MadWorld on Wii and Henry Hatsworth in the Puzzling Adventure on DS are out this week. They’ve both been getting reviews scores of around 7 or 8, making them worth a look. Shame the same can’t be said about Castlevania: Judgment, which got very grave reviews when it was released in the US.

Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars is arguably the biggest game out this week though – scores have been nothing short of brilliant, with a perfect 10 from Eurogamer and the Official Nintendo Magazine dishing out 94%. To counterattack on PSP there’s Resistance: Retribution, which sees the series go third-person. Game are doing a collector’s edition which comes with four postcards and a downloadable theme.

If none of that lot takes your fancy then there’s also Broken Sword: Shadow of the Templars Directors Cut on Wii. The developers say that if it sells well then the sequel and Beneath a Steel Sky will get the Wii make-over treatment too.

Next week: Afro Samuari, Don King Boxing, Leisure Suit Larry: Box Office Bust (only £16.99 to pre-order at Game), Monsters vs Aliens, Mushroom Men: The Spore Wars, The Wheelman and Stormrise.
