This Week’s Games
2010 is supposedly going to be a golden year for gaming. This week, however, is a bit pump. Segaâ€™s Sakura Wars: So Long My Love for Wii is of niche appeal although reviews have been mostly positive. Itâ€™s a slightly daft RPG set in a steampunk version of New York in the 1920s and was first released in Japan way back in 2005. Itâ€™s the first Sakura Wars game to be released in Europe, despite the number of games in the series running into double figures.
Then thereâ€™s the catchily named Borderlands: The Zombie Island of Dr. Ned and Mad Moxxis Underdome Riot Add-On Pack. Itâ€™s Â£11.99 at Gameplay if you fancy more Borderlands blasting.
Also, sublime 2D brawler BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger is out now to buy. We missed it from last weekâ€™s new round-up because nobody had it down on their release radars.
Next week: Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell: Conviction, Dead to Rights Retribution, Grand Theft Auto: Episodes from Liberty City, Rugby League 3 and Samurai Shodown Sen.
