Virtually all of these are sequels, what about some review of original games or do those not exist anymore ?
Our second helping of our console game roundups, caters for those playing on Microsoft's Xbox 360. Sure you may be preoccupied connecting up smartphones through the new SmartGlass feature, but we wouldn't want you to be caught out for Christmas and be lost among the hundreds of new titles, unsure of what to purchase. So …
Ok, it's true that most of you will probably have not "missed" Hitman, with the overkill of advertisements recently. But it is still one of the better games out there released in the last few months.
Don't be too misled by our headline, these roundups are meant to wrap up any (good) games that we haven't managed in full multi-page reviews. There's loads of average junk around and we've missed out plenty of titles.
If we only covered small indie titles and completely unheard of console games from the last 2/3 months, I doubt we'd even have 10 (let alone 20 here) that are all rated 70% or more.
Just for the record, the new Hitman rocks! It has drained at least £30 worth of electric at home in the last week, I swear.
Sorry, after Konami delivered successive versions with the worst netcode possible, there's a reason FIFA outsells it. Piss off your core audience, and if a competitor comes along with a decent product, they will buy that instead. Seabass screwed over gamers after PES 6, subsequent releases just took the money and never fixed the underlying flawed code.
