What, no horse armour?

This Week’s Games The summer is here! Or at least, it is if this week’s rather slim looking release list is to go by. If you can stomach the clichéd sci-fi setting then The Conduit on Wii might be up your alley. Reviews have been around the 7 mark. Unless you read EDGE, who gave …

Why release a horrible looking PSP?

This Week’s Games Two games out this week scream big sales at me: Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince and Tiger Woods PGA Tour 10. There aren’t many reviews of EA’s latest Potter efforts yet, but the pattern seems to be: console versions reasonable, handheld versions not. Needless to say, it looks like yet another …

Eat the expensive popcorn, play the rubbish game

This Week’s Games Is it Christmas already? With the amount of new games out today you’d think so – there are 12 new Wii games alone. The big multi-format ones though are Overlord 2, Fight Night Round 4, Transformers 2 and Ice Age 3: Dawn of the Dinosaurs. The Wii gets Another Code: R and …

You can’t get the staff these days

This Week’s Games It’s a bit odd that the first game to use the Wii MotionPlus is a third party title, but then again EA and Nintendo are on very good terms at the moment. The device on it’s own will set you back £19.99, or you can get it with EA Sports Grand Slam …

Guerrillas in the mist

This Week’s Games THQ are full of surprises – Saints Row 2 was a decent alternative to GTA IV and if the reviews are to go by then Red Faction Guerrilla can hold its weight against any other FPS you care to mention. Codemaster’s Fuel – which looks a lot like Pure – is also …

There aint no party like a Boom Blox Bash Party

This Week’s Games PlayStation 3-exclusive iNfamous, from Sly Racoon developers Sucker Punch, has been getting solid although not quite glowing reviews. GamesRadar gave it a 7, complaining that the city isn’t much fun to explore and that the last half of the game drags. They didn’t think much of Terminator Salvation either, giving it a …

Fight!

This Week’s Games Up for a ruck? Well you’re in luck this week – Punch Out on Wii and UFC: Undisputed have both been getting good reviews, and are now out to buy. If punching virtual humans isn’t your thing and would rather harm dubious looking critters instead then there’s always Pokemon Platinum, a director’s …

To Be Pacific

This Week’s Games Slim pickings this week – there isn’t even a single new game out for PlayStation 3. Battlestations: Pacific on Xbox 360 (and PC) is the most prolific, and word has it that it isn’t too bad. Eurogamer gave it a 7, praising the AI and clever mission objectives. Namco Museum: Virtual Arcade …

Dance Party and Dance Party and Dance Party

This Week’s Games Dance mats went out of fashion years ago but somebody obviously forgot to tell Noridic Games. They’re releasing Dance Party: Club Hits and Dance Party: Pop Hits on PlayStation 2 and Wii this week, both available with or without a mat to boogie on. There are more interesting things out to spend …

Three Cheers for the Little King

This Week’s Games Rising Star’s Little King’s Story on Wii has been likened to Nintendo’s Pikmin. So what day did they choose to release it? On the same day as the Wii re-release of Pikmin 2, of course! Surely they can’t have planned for that to happen? Both are very good games though, and well …

Mmmm Mmmm Mmmm Mmmm

This Week’s Games Two games that have been knocking around on the release schedules for eons are finally out today. Recommended DS FPS Dementium has seen a change of publisher while the delay behind CID: The Dummy (which stands for Crash Impact Dummy: The Dummy, oddly) is a bit of a mystery. I reckon it …

Oh God

This Week’s Games Fancy a new game to play while munching on Easter eggs this weekend? Sadly your choices are limited at best. On PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 just one game makes it way to shelves – The Godfather II. Eurogamer didn’t really like it, giving it a 4. It’s probably best to wait …

DS I see you

This Week’s Games The DSi hits shelves this week at a rather pricey £149.99. Many high street stores will let you have one for half price if you trade in your DS Lite though. You’d think that Nintendo would have a big new release to go alongside it, right? Wrong – there’s just a handful …

Lots of games

This Week’s Games Blimey, there’s quite a lot out this week. But what does any of it mean? I’ll try to work it out as I go along. Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: Echoes of Time is for Wii and Nintendo DS, and the two versions are compatible in multiplayer. Reviews: quite good. Driving action thing …

Mad as a hatter

This Week’s Games That headline is a apt one as both MadWorld on Wii and Henry Hatsworth in the Puzzling Adventure on DS are out this week. They’ve both been getting reviews scores of around 7 or 8, making them worth a look. Shame the same can’t be said about Castlevania: Judgment, which got very …
