This Week’s Games
A fan of Lost? Then you might be interested in Just Cause 2 (if you werenâ€™t already) – apparently thereâ€™s an island that pays homage to the Lost island, complete with a hatch and a smoke monster. I havenâ€™t seen any 9s dished out for it yet, but there has been plenty of 8s. The same goes for Red Steel 2 – itâ€™s a vast improvement over of the original, with a new graphic style and setting and better controls. NGamer Magazine said that the cut-scenes were very dated though. You can get it for a nice Â£29.73 from Amazon with the Motion Plus add-on.
Infinite Space should please those looking for a new DS game with a bit of depth and complexity behind it. The same probably canâ€™t be said for SpongeBob Boating Bash (out on Wii and DS today) and movie tie-in How to Train Your Dragon. Another licensed game hitting stores this week is Prison Break: The Conspiracy. Iâ€™m almost done writing our review. In short: itâ€™s solidly put together, but not very original. It also contains loads of stealth sections that require patience, so it might not be everybodyâ€™s cup of tea.
Pokemon Heart Gold / Soul Silver should do well in the charts, and people canâ€™t moan that thereâ€™s nothing new in this installment of Nintendoâ€™s cash miltank (see what I did there?) as it comes with a Pokewalker LCD handheld so you can take your â€˜mon on the move.
Segaâ€™s Resonance of Fate and Tecmo Koeiâ€™s Last Rebellion both sound like the type of thing that are bound for curiosity. Theyâ€™re both RPGs of the angst ridden teenager kind – Resonance of Fate is out on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 while Last Rebellion is a PlayStation 3-exclusive.
Next week: BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger, Dead or Alive: Paradise, Lips: I love the 80s and Supreme Commander 2.
