This Week’s Games
DS carts – tiny in size, but they can hold a lot of information. So why then does Sonic Classic Collection (currently Â£17.99 on Gameplay) only feature four Sonic games? They could have stuck Sonic Spinball and Dr. Robotnikâ€™s Mean Bean Machine on there as well I reckon.
Hmm. Resident Evil 5: Gold Edition is an odd one – both Play and Amazon are seemingly unaware of its existence. Both Gameplay and Game say itâ€™s out this week though. Itâ€™s Â£24.99 and features some extra missions (Lost in Nightmares, Desperate Escape and The Mercenaries Reunion), a versus mode and four extra costumes. Sounds worth it to me.
PlayStation 3-exclusive Yakuza 3 is worth a look too. GamesRadar gave it an 8 – “It’s GTA Japan, with added golf, suplexes and kung-fu kicks,” they said.
Just one multiformat release this week – BEN 10: ALIEN FORCE Vilgax Attacks, which was actually released in the US late last year. Reviews on GameRankings are around the 70% mark for all four versions, meaning itâ€™s a hell of a lot better than the recent Astro Boy game.
Next week: God of War 3, Metro 2033, Combat of Giants: Mutant Insect, Command and Conquer 4: Tiberian Twilight, Moto GP 09/10 and Fireburst.
