New PAL Releases Roundup

God of War III! Metro 2033! Dragon Age!

War! Lots more war to chomp down on this week, just in case the last few weeks of shooting people in the face have somehow left you malnourished.

Most notably, tomorrow marks the long-awaited launch of the phenomenal God of War III for PS3, capping off a strong old period for the console that only does everything. God of War III may only be a game about Kratos climbing a hill, but what a hill, and hey, it's Kratos.

Command & Conquer's Kane, king baddy of the bonkers RTS series, is also up to his old tricks this week, but it turns out Tiberian Twilight can't teach the old dog any good new ones, which is a pity, because this may be the last proper boxed C&C game we see for a long time, and Joe Kucan's a very nice chap.

It's not all doom and gloom for publisher EA this week though. Quite the contrary, in fact, as splendid Dragon Age expansion Awakening more than makes up for things. Darkrespawn!

Those are all big wars, then, but PC owners are also well served by futuristic, smaller-scale mutant-bashing - as are their Xbox 360 owning cousins - thanks to 4A Games' impressive debut, the THQ-published and 8/10-scoring Metro 2033. Fans of condensation, gas masks and tunnels will be in their element.

Online, meanwhile, there's the nostalgic pangs of the lovely Perfect Dark to explore on Xbox Live Arcade, while PSN users have the slightly unknown quantities that are Wakeboarding HD (mmm) and PSP title Patchwork Heroes (ooh) to consider - something we'll be doing in short order, at least in the latter's case.

To war!
