Plenty of games coming out this week, but picking a highlight is a little tricky.
I eventually went with DiRT 2 because it's just really solid. It's a funny week though: a mix of the decent but not spectacular, the umpteenth iteration of a franchise and a smattering of older games finally making their way to the PC.
Personally, I probably wouldn't buy anything this week, mainly because I've already playing Red Faction: Guerrilla on 360. But would you? Are you tempted to pick anything up?
UPDATE: Turns out that the Xbox 360 and DS versions of Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2 are hitting stores this Wednesday, while the PS3 and Wii versions will arrive a week later.
New releases for the w/c September 14:
Colin McRae: DiRT 2 (360, PS3, PSP, Wii) What Is It? Codemasters' veteran rally driving sim gets another run out. Should You Care? Series fans should pick up either the 360 or PS3 version.
Fossil Fighters (DS) What Is It? Pokemon clone with - wait for it - dinosaurs. Should You Care? Lacks the charm and variety of its source of inspiration.
Guitar Hero 5 (360, PS3, PS2, Wii) What Is It? It's Guitar Hero - only with 5 of it. Should You Care? The new features hardly inspire, so check the tracklist carefully.
Heroes Over Europe (360, PS3) What Is It? Flight combat successor to last-gen's Heroes of the Pacific. Should You Care? Accessible airbound warfare that's actually pretty good fun.
Motorstorm: Arctic Edge (PSP) What Is It? It's Motorstorm in the snow. Should You Care? Do you need another racing game for your PSP?
NewU Fitness First Personal Trainer (Wii) What Is It? Yet another exergaming title for the Wii. Should You Care? This one has dietary advice too!
NHL 10 (360, PS3) What Is It? Some sports sim involving ice skating and a puck... what's it called? Should You Care? Curling! That's it.
Order of War (PC) What Is It? Real-time strategy published by Square Enix and developed by the guys who made Massive Assault. Remember that? Should You Care? Me neither.
Red Faction: Guerrilla (PC) What Is It? Late PC port of Volition's rather excellent third-person shooter meets destruction sandbox. Should You Care? One of the year's best games, in my view.
Resident Evil 5 (PC) What Is It? Even later PC port of Capcom's rather patchy third-person shooter meets co-operative survival horror. Should You Care? When it's good, it's great, but when it isn't...
SingStar Motown (PS3, PS2) What Is It? New songs for SingStar, only this time they're motown! Should You Care? Wait, wasn't this meant to be out last week?
Wacky World of Sports (Wii) What Is It? No idea, frankly, but it sounds like a mini-game collection. Should You Care? I repeat, it sounds like a mini-game collection.
