The Week In Games

The Week In Games

Lots of Wii games coming out this week. 360 and PS3 owners? You get Hannah Montana.

Indiana Jones is the biggest name in games this week. Unfortunately the Staff of Kings is also perhaps the worst game coming out this week, not to mention the worst Indy game I’ve ever played.

Anything catch your eye?

New releases for the w/c June 15:

Boom Blox Bash Party (Wii) What Is It? Steven Spielberg produced puzzle game, now given more of a casual party-flavoured skew. Should You Care? I haven’t played this sequel yet, but the original is still one of Wii’s best.

Donkey Kong Jungle Beat (Wii) What Is It? Wiimake of the bongo-controlled Gamecube platformer. Should You Care? Still a great game, but not as fun to play with the Wiimote and Nunchuk.

Hannah Montana: The Movie (PS3, 360, Wii, DS) What Is It? “Customize Hannah and Miley’s wardrobes with outfits seen in the movie and more!” Should You Care? Wut?

Indiana Jones and the Staff of Kings (Wii, DS, PS2) What Is It? All-new Indy action/adventure that’s nothing to do with the recent movie. Should You Care? Not sure about the PS2 and DS versions, but the Wii waggle-fest is terrible from start to finish.

LEGO Battles (DS) What Is It? Handheld RTS with all the unit customisation you’d expect from the LEGO brand. Should You Care? Definitely worth a look.

Let’s Tap (Wii) What Is It? Mini-game collection from the creator of Sonic the Hedgehog. Should You Care? Nothing essential, but better than you might expect.

Valhalla Knights 2 (PSP) What Is It? Japanese RPG with multiplayer parties and loads of dungeon-crawling. Should You Care? Only if you like your grinding as tedious as possible.

Virtua Tennis 2009 (Wii) What Is It? MotionPlus supported tennis game from Sega. Should You Care? Marginally superior to EA’s Grand Slam Tennis.


  • It’s payweek and well it will be covering the hole left from the 3 last week…

    On another note… David, have you heard anything from EA about Rock Band Unplugged coming to AU?

    Yes, EA don’t seem to like to release the Rock Band series down here, though curious to see if it’s another another game that won’t be released…

    *cough* Rock Band 2 *cough*
