Obviously the big release this week is Spider Man 3 on all formats to coincide with the movie release. You all know my views regarding movie licenses though I have been impressed with Spider-Man games in the past.

PC

Theatre of War (30th April): A WWII RTS in the same vein as Company of Heroes, but with an emphasis on accuracy rather than action.

PS2

A.T.O.M. (4th May): Game based on a cartoon based on a series of action figures, sounds promising doesn’t it?

PS3

Bladestorm: The Hundred Years War (May 4th): Action strategy title set during the hundred years war, strangely enough.
Untold Legends: Dark Kngdom (May 4th): An action RPG which sounds like it could have come out of a mould, thousands of weapons, armour sets and items, but hardly any story.

PSP

Diner Dash: Sizzle and Serve (May 4th): Puzzle game with tycoon elements.
Spectral Vs Generation (May 4th): Classic Style 2D fighter bringing together characters from Idea Factory’s RPG games; Spectral Souls and Generation of Chaos.
Spinout
(May 4th): Strange arcade racer which looks like a cross between Wipeout and Marble Madness.
Tony Hawk’s Project 8 (May 4th): What can I say, more skateboarding.

360

Rayman: Raving Rabbids (May 4th): People say its a platform game but it is more like a collection of mini-games, unless they’ve changed the format completely for the 360.

Wii

Eledees (May 4th): Strange puzzle/adventure title which makes good use of the Wii’s unique controller.

DS

Diner Dash: Sizzle and Serve (May 4th): Puzzle game with tycoon elements.
Final Fantasy III (May 4th): DS remake of the classic RPG.
Harlem Globetrotters World Tour (May 4th): Basketball game featuring the world famous exhibition team (or their name at least).
Meteos: Disney Magic (May 4th): Columns clone with Disney characters.
