Last yearâ€™s Hulk game was pretty pointless as an excellent Hulk game (The Hulk: Ultimate Destruction) had already been made. Iâ€™m wondering if the same is going to apply to X-Men Origins: Wolverine as 2003â€™s X-2: Wolverineâ€™s Revenge is widely regarded by the fans to be a definitive Wolverine experience. Itâ€™s out on all formats (bar PSP) this week and with the movie out too itâ€™ll no doubt get into the top #10.
There are also two other movie tie-ins out – Coraline, which Iâ€™m guessing is a bit rubbish due to the lack of publicity, and Hannah Montana: The Movie Game. Which Iâ€™m also guessing is rubbish.
On Wii thereâ€™s Marbles Balance Challenge, the sequel to Kororinpa, only this time you can use the balance board. Gamingâ€™s favourite mother is back on DS with Gardening Mama, while Koch Media for some reason thought that Russell Grant’s Astrology would make a good DS game. Best stick to Rhythm Paradise, which has been popular with importers and Nintendo have promoted with funky shop displays.
Next Week: Secret Files 2: Puritas Cordis, Velvet Assassin, Vertigo and Pool Hall Pro. Also: some Only Fools & Horses T-shirts. GAME, you plonker!
