This Week’s Games
Move along PlayStation and Xbox owners – thereâ€™s nothing for you to see here. There isnâ€™t a great deal out for owners of Nintendoâ€™s consoles either though, so thereâ€™s no need to be jealous.
THQâ€™s The Last Airbender for Wii and DS is the biggest game of the week and is based on the upcoming movie that doesnâ€™t look too bad at all. The movie itself is based on the Avatar cartoon, but Iâ€™m guessing they werenâ€™t allowed to call the movie Avatar because of that other movie. US magazine Nintendo Power appears to be the only place to review it so far. They gave the Wii version 6/10 and the DS version 7.5/10.
The Sorcerer’s Apprentice on DS is another movie tie-in, based on a Disney movie that looks like shameless clone of the Harry Potter saga. Then thereâ€™s Art Academy: Painting and Drawing, which is being published by Nintendo themselves.
Chicken Blaster on Wii rounds off this weekâ€™s releases. The publisherâ€™s website has been showing a â€œcoming soonâ€ page for months, so they clearly donâ€™t want to world to see what tat theyâ€™re planning to publish.
Next week: Madden NFL 11 on PlayStation 3/Xbox 360 and Family Gameshow on Wii.
Does The Last Airbender (film, not game) really look any good? It has a terrible name.
Well, the trailer looked really good but i’ve just had a look a movie reviews on the ‘net and they’ve been terrible.
The average score, from over 12,000 votes, is 4/10 on iMDB. I doubt very much though that all 12,000 people have seen it for themselves.
Why not, it came out a month ago?
Everyone says it’s M. Night Shyamalan’s worst movie ever (the bottom point of a nice downward sloping graph), so that doesn’t bode well.
