This Week’s Games
Videogame publishers of the world must be able to smell that money sitting in your bank account. Thatâ€™s the only reason I can think as to why thereâ€™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 weâ€™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, thereâ€™s always Vanquish – Segaâ€™s brilliant looking sci-fi Gears of War clone. Game Informer published the first review earlier this week, claiming that itâ€™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 thereâ€™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!
