New PAL Releases Roundup - 22/05/09

Punch-Out!! Bionic Commando! Pokémon!

Like the sun, the new releases have come out to play. Or got their hat on. Whichever of the two makes sense. [That would be neither - Ed.]

Wii owners get transported back to NES days with the brand-new Punch-Out!! this week. It's worth trying even if you don't remember the original, but consider a real-life punchbag as the campaign unravels. Check out our Punch-Out!! review for more.

Fighting fans really ought to consider UFC 2009 Undisputed, too. Our UFC 2009 Undisputed review tells you why.

Bionic Commando didn't quite grapple us as we had once hoped it would, but is worth a look nonetheless, partly because Heather Mills would have been in the game had Capcom stumped up the cash. The PC version will follow, incidentally.

Our hands-on time with EA Sports Active suggested it be worth keeping an eye on, which is exactly what Eurogamer TV did recently, and Big Family Games gets a shout because THQ sent our very own Queen a gold-plated Wii as a PR stunt.

Damnation turned out to be rubbish, which we hope won't be the fate of Warrior Epic, a promising free-to-play MMO that launched mid-week.

All that and more Pokémon on DS.
