This Week’s Games
Microsoft starts wheeling out their big Christmas games this week, with Forza 3 and Lips: Number One Hits hitting shelves. Forza 3 got a 9 on Eurogamer, even though they said that the difficulty level was a bit bumpy and that the damage modeling looks a bit naff. GamesRadar though seemed to think that it was near perfect, awarding it a 10.
Fans of big sweaty angry men will no doubt want the new WEE, Sorry, WWE game – WWE SmackDown vs Raw 2010. GamesRadar reviewed all three versions, and you should probably take the scores with a pinch of salt – the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 scored 9, the Wii version an 8 and the DS version a 7. Asda are doing the console versions for Â£25, according to the internet.
Boarderlands, which keeps on being unfairly compared to Fallout 3, has mostly been getting 8s. It has RPG elements, but itâ€™s more of a shooter. Iâ€™m willing to bet itâ€™ll sell more copies on Xbox 360 than it does on PlayStation 3. Thereâ€™s also Pro Evolution Soccer 2010, which isnâ€™t quite as good as FIFA this year. How times have changed. If you still fancy a kick about though, Asda are also doing this one at a reduced price of Â£27-odd for a limited time.
Another new release bargain is Sonyâ€™s EyePet and Camera for Â£24.99 at HMV. Itâ€™s a virtual pet thing, if you hadnâ€™t guessed.
Next week: Tekken 6, Grand Theft Auto: Episodes from Liberty City, DJ Hero, Wii Fit Plus, Ju-On The Grudge and Agarest: Generations of War.
