G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra (5 out of 5)
It’s he first new game of the G.I. Joe franchise in over 20 years, and thanks to the resurface in popularity thanks to the new movie “G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra” a new generation has been introduced to the G.I. Joe mythos. The new game is going to be released on August 4th and the looks promising and just as entertaining as the movie was, but why is this game so hot?
Because the game is a sequel to the movie, which is really neat, as you won’t be playing the events from the movie but rather a new mission and will see how the story develops further than the cinematic adaption. Another point that makes the game cool is it allows the older generation who grew up with the G.I. Joe action figures to enjoy this game as well. The developers thought really carefully about how to expand their profitable market by aiming to an older generation.However, as this is cool, there is a negative aspect as well; the graphics and the gameplay are not the best, leading some players to doubt if the game is worth it.
I say if you like G.I. Joe go and buy the game, and if you want to pre-order it you can click here and you will be redirected to amazon.com
Guitar Hero 5 (4 out of 5)
Another Guitar Hero game; really cool and addictive as are the previous versions, but with a small twist that will enchant parents. This version is the most friendly of the series, not only because of the song selection but also because it will let the players to configure their instrument selections as the want to, i.e. if the player wants to play with four guitars even if the song don’t let them they still can. However, as other Guitar Heroes, it’s still a Guitar Hero with relative few improvements and with the same formula deep in the end. But no matter if you are a fanatic of not, the game rocks and if you want to pre-order it you can click here and you will be redirected amazon.com. The release of the new version will be on September 1st.
Star Wars The Clone Wars - Republic Heroes (4 out of 5)
Star Wars: The Clone Wars - Republic Heroes is another game of the Star Wars franchise and is going to be released on September 15 of 2009. No matter how many games of Star Wars are on the market all of them are cool and in this not the exception to the rule. This game takes aspects that were left behind on the Clone Wars Cartoon Network series and explores another aspect of the troubled relation between Anakin “Darth Vader” Skywalker and Obi Wan Kenobi during the clone wars. One cool aspect of this game is that player can choose over a variety of characters not only the Jedi’s, something that is not common in other games. One negative aspect is that some may see it as just another Star Wars game and some fans may feel disappointed toward the over exploitation of the George Lucas Saga.
Pro Evolution Soccer 2010 (4 out of 5)
Pro-Evolution Soccer 2010 is the sequel to Pro-Evolution Soccer 2009. The game is shaping up really good according to the previews and is going to be on the market by November 2009. The game looks visually extremely similar to the other games, but one interesting aspect is that PS2 version is going to have for the first time internet connectivity and players can play without leaving the comfort of their home.This game is mostly aimed to fanatics of soccer that enjoy playing with their favorite teams and to people who want to buy their first sport games. I highly recommend this game because of the easy gameplay and the low price that can be afforded by anyone, even novice players.
