This Week’s Games
THQ are full of surprises – Saints Row 2 was a decent alternative to GTA IV and if the reviews are to go by then Red Faction Guerrilla can hold its weight against any other FPS you care to mention. Codemasterâ€™s Fuel – which looks a lot like Pure – is also out and fans of Japanese RPGs are catered for too with Star Ocean: The Last Hope hitting Xbox 360 and Ar Tonelico 2: Melody of the Metafalica on PlayStation 2.
Just two games for Wii this week – Jillian Michaels’ Fitness Ultimatum 2009 and Donkey Kong Jungle Beat. The GameCube version was very underrated. Deep Silver are releasing Sacred 2: Fallen Angel on both PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, even though the first one never made it to consoles. Nearly every review Iâ€™ve read has given it 6/10.
If you thought Jillian Michaels’ Fitness Ultimatum 2009 was a stupidly long title then get your tongue round this one – Walk With Me! Do You Know Your Walking Routine? Itâ€™s by Nintendo for the DS and comes with an â€œActivity Meterâ€. I think thatâ€™s just a fancy name for a pedometer.
If youâ€™re thinking of buying either a DS Lite or PSP then these two new bundles might take your fancy – DS Lite: Professor Layton Pack and the PSP 3000 Go View Pack. Personally Iâ€™d hold out for a PSP Go or fork out the extra for a DSi.
Next week: Prototype, EA Sports Grand Slam Tennis (with Wii MotionPlus), Superstars V8 Racing, Indiana Jones and the Staff of Kings, Guilty Gear 2: Overture, Hail to the Chimp and Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs.
