The Week Ahead August 23rd - 29th

After spending some time with the Rome: Total War demo I almost want to name it game of the week but I suppose that would be cheating. Instead the honor goes to Viewtiful Joe for the PS2, now with more Dante! It ships on the 24th for only $29.99 and includes the ability to play with Devil May Cry's Dante and see a bunch of new stuff in the process.

On DVD this week we've got Ella Enchanted, The Girl Next Door (good!), Law of Attraction and more.

Maximum Underworld
Platform: PC
Ships: August 24th
Price: $19.99

The Buzz: This is actually a compilation of Max Payne and Mafia. Both solid games and if you haven't played it yet, Mafia is easily worth that price on its own.

Test Drive: Eve of Destruction
Platform: PS2, Xbox
Ships: August 24th
Price: $39.99

The Buzz: What buzz? I know it's a crashin' car game but the only review I can find is a high score in GamePro magazine.

Amazing Island
Platform: Gamecube
Ships: August 24th
Price: $39.99

The Buzz: I'm immediatly granting this game the Worst Cover of the Year award, congradulations! Made by SEGA, this mini-game laden monster building game looks to be geared towards a younger audience.


After Devil May Cry 2, Dante = not welcome on my television.

Where did you get Rome TW demo? Can't find it anywhere...
