New Releases - 06/04/07

Only a very quick releases section this week because there's not really much worth bothering with. In fact, there's only three games that I would consider picking up...

Sony PSP and Nintendo Wii

Prince of Persia: Rival Swords

A new version of Prince of Persia 3: The Two Thrones which supposedly takes advantage of the unique Wii controller and the portable nature of the PSP. If you've already played that game on one of the other formats then I doubt there's much to keep you interested here - if you haven't though it may be worth checking out.

Xbox 360

Guitar Hero II

The hit music game from Harmonix comes to the big beige box along with 10 new songs including tracks by Alice Cooper, Deep Purple and Pearl Jam. If you still haven't paid out the fairly hefty price to pick this up, then you really should!

Import Watch

Super Paper Mario

The Wii version of Datel's Freeloader disc cannot come soon enough as far as I'm concerned, especially now that the latest game in the long running Mario RPG series is available in the US. There seems to be more emphasis on action and platform style gameplay than the RPG side this time around which worries me a bit, but I have faith in Nintendo and Intelligent systems. It's a shame we have no idea how long we'll have to wait for a European release!

Super Paper Mario
This was an easy choice this week - I've loved every moment of every game in the series so far and I expect great things from this one too.
