This Week’s Games
Expect a load of DS titles to re-enter the chart next week due to the super-sized Nintendo DSi XL hitting stores tomorrow. There are only two new DS games released this week to coincide with it though – the apparently better than you might expect Alice in Wonderland (also out on Wii) and Ubisoftâ€™s Imagine: Journalist, as mocked on UK Resistance.
Battlefield: Bad Company 2 is the only thing arriving on consoles. GameRankings is currently showing an 89% average review score, so yeah, itâ€™s good. Iâ€™d imagine that the single player isnâ€™t as good as Call of Duty: MW2 but the multi-player mode has a lot more stuff to get stuck into.
Finally, get your phoenix downs ready for Tuesday 9th as thatâ€™s when Final Fantasy XIII is out. The usually reliable PSM3 Magazine only gave it 70% while GamesMaster magazine scored it 76%. These arenâ€™t the kind of scores I was expecting, to be honest.
Next week: Moto GP 09/10, Resident Evil 5: Gold Edition, Sonic Classic Collection and Yakuza 3.
