This Weekâ€™s Games
Even though Christmas is a couple of weeks away today sees the last big release of the year – DS RPG Golden Sun: Dark Dawn. NGamer gave it 92% and some of our followers on Twitter who imported the US version say itâ€™s very good indeed. You may remember the Golden Sun series from the days of the GameBoy Advance.
The name Sniper Elite may also ring a bell with you – it was a game released on Xbox and PlayStation 2 eons ago. Itâ€™s now out on Wii. Reviews were solid when it was originally released and it’s probably worth a look seeing that ‘mature’ titles on Wii are few and far between.
Dodge Racing: Charger vs. Challenger is out on Wii this week as well but it looks a bit iffy. Going by the screenshots on IGN you can count the polygons it pushes on one hand.
Mindscape rounds the week off with TV tie-in House M.D on DS. It sounds a bit like Trauma Team/Center according to the blurb: â€œYour job is to diagnose unknown illnesses by interviewing and examining patients, analyzing lab tests and even performing surgery!â€ I doubt itâ€™s even half as good as Atlusâ€™ surgical sims though.
Next week: The Ultimate Battle of the Sexes on Wii, and then thatâ€™s your lot for the year.
