This Week’s Games
Videogame publishers of the world must be able to smell that money sitting in your bank account. That’s the only reason I can think as to why there’s at least five new games out this week which are worth considering. That’s nothing compared to next week’s onslaught of new titles, though.
Fallout: New Vegas may not be the best looking game of the year, but reviews are just as good as its predecessor. Fable III is out next week too, so we’re really being spoilt for action-RPGs at the moment. EA Sports MMA looks like it could give UFC: Undisputed a run for its money, Professor Layton and the Lost Future is more of the same and therefore good while DJ Hero 2 has been getting 9/10s across the board.
None of them take your fancy? Well, there’s always Vanquish – Sega’s brilliant looking sci-fi Gears of War clone. Game Informer published the first review earlier this week, claiming that it’s only 4 hours long and giving it a 7 but since then Eurogamer has stepped in its defense and given it a 9. Harvest Moon: Hero of Leaf Valley should please PSP farming fans and for the casual gamers there’s Monopoly Streets and Family Trainer: Treasure Adventure on Wii.
Next week: Fable III, Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II, WWE Smackdown vs RAW 2011, Lord Of The Rings: Aragorn’s Quest, Saw II: Flesh & Blood, Super Scribblenauts, Shaun White Skateboarding, Hasbro Family Game Night 3, The Sims 3, Rock Band 3, Deadly Premonition, Ivy the Kiwi, Tony Hawk Shred, Ben 10 Ultimate Alien: Cosmic Destruction, The X Factor, Bakugan Battle Brawlers: Defenders of the Core, Rapala Pro Bass Fishing and CSI Fatal Conspiracy. Phew!
