What's New?

Lots and lots and lots and lots

As you've probably gathered, this final week of March is rather hectic, with a lot of big name releases and an even greater number of other, less exciting ones. However, it strikes us that Championship Manager 4 will be top of the charts on Tuesday regardless - and Kristan will be bringing you his verdict on that very soon.

Elsewhere in the line-up, games like Indiana Jones and The Emperor's Tomb, and Metal Gear Solid 2: Substance, make a concerted thrust for greatness, only falling short in a few areas, and The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past is a game that every gamer in the world should own in one guise or another - and you can even pick up a GameBoy Advance SP to go along with it! Hurrah!

Other highlights include Splinter Cell's PS2 debut, and Lost Vikings and Sonic Advance 2 on the GBA.

Sadly, some games this week have stumbled despite promising much. ISS3 is actually quite bad, and likewise Devil May Cry 2 is easier than waking up in the morning. Then there's Dead or Alive Xtreme Beach Volleyball, which should be buried in a field somewhere and forgotten about if you ask us.
