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 …

It began in Africa

This Week’s Games So, Resident Evil 5. It hasn’t turned out to be as good as everybody hoped, but it’s still worth a play through. It will undoubtedly be #1 next week though, regardless of the bounty of 7/10 review scores. Another game out this week that hasn’t scored as high as it might have …

Battle Fantasia is from the team behind Guilty …

My gun is bigger than your gun

This Week’s Games Ping! Ping! Ping! That’s the sound of Microsoft and Sony flicking elastic bands at each another. It’ll be genuinely interesting to see what does better in next week’s chart – Halo Wars or Killzone 2. There are more 360s out there than PlayStation 3s, but a Halo-themed RTS isn’t going to be …

How do you do, Ken?

This Week’s Games There’s bound to be something out this week to tickle your fancy. Street Fighter IV has been getting excellent reviews and it’s also surprisingly cheap online – £27.99 at HMV seems a sensible buy. 50 Cent: Blood on the Sand is also said to be jolly good fun (as 50 Cent himself …

The scariest day possible

This Week’s Games It’s Friday the 13th, the scariest day possible. So what do we have released today? Hotel for Dogs, Disney’s Bolt, Ben 10 and Petz. Though admittedly they’re all on DS, hardly the format of choice for developers trying to scare people. FEAR 2: Project Origin sounds more appropriate. Unless I’m completely out …

Prefab sprout

There’s the evergreen RPG Chrono Trigger, Age of Empires, Konami’s Time Hollow and Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia and also Nintendo’s TV-advertised Mystery Case Files: Millionheir. The PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 only have two new games out – the motorbike-laden Burnout Paradise: …

The birds are having sex with the bees

This Week’s Games I hope you like animals, because EA’s SimAnimals on Wii and DS is the only game out this week. Papery thing NGamer quite liked it, comparing it to Viva Pinata. Next week is looking a bit more lively with Burnout Paradise: The Ultimate Box, Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia, Chrono Trigger, Pikmin and …

My Money Making Coach

This Week’s Games It’s not a very exciting week for new releases, but it’s January so you’d expect as much. Skate 2 for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 looks like it has built on the last game – which was very good – while My Fitness Coach on Wii sounds like a worthy alternative to …

Bored of the Rings

This Week’s Games EA continue to wring their The Lord of the Rings license for every last penny, releasing The Lord of the Rings: Conquest on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Nintendo DS and PC this week. It’s by Pandemic – the Mercenaries and Full Spectrum Warrior people – but don’t go thinking it’s any good. …

For those about to rock, we salute you

This Week’s Games It’s always the way – October and November see a slew of new releases but December is utterly barren. Last week you could count the new games on one hand; this week you could use just two two fingers. How rude! Sonic Unleashed make a belated appearance on PlayStation 3, while EA’s …

Full of Eastern promise

This Week’s Games From the looks of things, Prince of Persia and Animal Crossing: Let’s go to the City are the last of the big Christmas releases. That’s unless you count Agatha Christie: Evil Under the Sun on Wii and Indoor Sports School on DS as big releases. Which you probably don’t. Ubi’s cel-shaded Prince …

See Sonic run. Run, Sonic, run

This Week’s Games After a chaotic few weeks, the new releases are starting to slow down a tad. Sonic Unleashed is the most high profile, the PlayStation 2 version of which is a stupidly cheap £12.89 at sendit.com, but Lord knows if it’s any good. Sega said that it isn’t being released in Japan, which …

Get your skates on

This Week’s Games Another week, another slew of big releases. Get ready to open your wallets for Shrek’s Carnival Craze (Need for Speed Undercover), Funfair Party (Tomb Raider Underworld), Imagine Gymnast (Left 4 Dead) and Barbie Horse Adventures: Summer Camp (Skate It). Lara’s latest hasn’t been getting glowing reviews (it’s currently on 75% on Gamerankings) …
