The last two weeks have been rammed with new releases. This week however is more like a typical February with just two releases of note â€“ Tekken 3D Prime Edition and UFC 3.
The 3DS already has two very fine fighting games, and if Nintendo Gamerâ€™s review is to be believed, Tekken doesnâ€™t quite manage to top Street Fighter IV 3D â€“ they said the single player modes are unsatisfying and it feels a little dated. It does though have a full-length CGI movie on the cartridge. They gave it 76%, while IGN gave it a similar score â€“ 7.5.
According to Eurogamerâ€™s 8/10 review of UFC 3, steps have been made to make it a little easier to play, including a control system that simply requires flicks of the analogue sticks. The developers have seemingly played it safe though and not added anything else dramatically new.
Then we have a couple of lesser releases. The Whitakers present Milton and Friends on 3DS is aimed at those after some equestrian escapades, while Junior League Sports on Wii appears to be a collection of some older budget sports games first released on PlayStation 2. Quality.
Next week: Syndicate (PS3, 360, PC), Binary Domain (PS3, 360), The Last Story (Wii), Wicked Monster Blast (Wii), Zumba Fitness Rush (360), Hyperdimension Neptunia Mk2 (PS3), Glacier 3 (Wii) and the PS Vita with more games than we care to count. Weâ€™ll have a full PS Vita launch article up next week in order to take care of that.
