New Releases This Week for PS3 (3.20.11)

Here we are again for another
week of new PlayStation releases. First off, unfortunately we missed last weeks
update, but the major new content that arrived on PSN included the PSone classic
Parasite Eve, and the PS3 games Slam Bolt Scrappers, Hard Corps: Uprising, and Prince of Persia. There were also a
couple of big new games in stores, notably the excellent FPS Homefront, Yakuza 4, and Top Spin 4.
 


This week is another big one
for new games. Arriving on the PSN are: Swarm,
which is an action-platformer; PlayStation
Move Heroes
, which is a series of mini games for the Move; Battle: Los Angeles is the game of the
film; and Premier Manger is a soccer management
sim. The main new PSN game is probably Ghostbusters: Sanctum Of Slime, which is a fast-paced and colorful four-player arcade blaster based in the world of the popular films.

New PS3 games coming to
stores this week include Lego Star Wars III: The
Clone Wars
, Tomb Raider Trilogy,
and Mayhem 3D. The biggest store
release this week though must be Crysis 2.
It’s a science fiction first-person shooter developed by Crytek,
and is the sequel to one of the most celebrated PC games of the last few years.
The game is built around the CryEngine
3
 game engine, and as most FPS’s this generation are based on the Unreal Engine, this gives Crysis 2 a unique and fresh look that really
makes it stand out in a crowded genre.
 


Game of the Week goes, unsurprisingly, to Crysis 2
this week. It may not be perfect but it has enough visual style and solid
gameplay to make it worth a look for anyone who likes science fiction, or who has
a taste for first-person shooters.
