This Week’s Games
Itâ€™s a bit odd that the first game to use the Wii MotionPlus is a third party title, but then again EA and Nintendo are on very good terms at the moment. The device on itâ€™s own will set you back Â£19.99, or you can get it with EA Sports Grand Slam Tennis for Â£44.99.
Indiana Jones and the Staff of Kings is out this week too, and on a bizarre array of consoles – Nintendo Wii, PlayStation 2, PSP and DS. The first batch of screenshots released for it looked very ropey and a lack of reviews is worrying. Also out on Wii this week – Pirates Vs Ninjas Dodgeball. With a bit of luck theyâ€™ll do Tramps Vs French Maids Badminton next.
Protoype is the biggest game out though and itâ€™s also one of the few games that Activision kept hold off when merging with Vivendi. Eurogamer gave it a 7, but GamesRadar liked it a whole lot more and awarded it a 9. In short: the boss battles are incredibly tough and the controls are a bit fiddly but running riot in the city is great fun.
Next week: Ghostbusters, Let’s Tap, MySims Racing and Hail to the Chimp.
