This Week’s Games
The seemingly brilliant FIFA 10 is out this week, so you can probably guess now what will be #1 in the charts on Monday. The supermarkets are having a price war on this one, with Tesco being the cheapest at Â£24.97 followed by Asda at Â£26.71. The DS version isnâ€™t out until the middle of the month from the looks of things.
If you are desperate for a new DS game then worry not – Space Invaders Extreme 2 is out, and itâ€™s only Â£12.95 at Zavvi. The first one was very good indeed. I have no idea what Amazing Adventures is about, but it’s by PopCap so it might be worth a gander.
FIFA 10 aside thereâ€™s something else big out today – the PSP Go! Itâ€™s available in any colour you like as long as you only like black and white, for Â£225. If you buy one and register it between 1st October and 10th October Sony will give you a free downloadable copy of Gran Turismo, which is also out today.
If you havenâ€™t read our reviews yet, medieval RPG Risen on Xbox 360 is an ample time-waster even though it looks a bit rubbish visually while Disney Pixar tie-in Up is heavily influenced by Lego Star Wars and much better than last yearâ€™s WALL E game. Itâ€™s pretty short and easy though, but youâ€™d probably expect that from a kidâ€™s game.
Anything else? How about Ninja Gaiden: Sigma 2 on PlayStation 3 (now with extra bouncy breasts), the apparently mediocre TMNT Smash Up on Wii and snowboarding sim StokEd on Xbox 360. And no, that isn’t a typo.
Next week: Mario and Luigi: Bowser’s Inside Story, Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising, Scribblenauts, Spore Hero, Star Wars: The Clone Wars Republic Heroes, Harvest Moon: Tree of Tranquility, Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days, NBA 2K10 and the awesomely titled Holy Invasion of Privacy, Badman!
