New PAL Releases Roundup - 29/05/09

GH Metallica, Boom Blox, inFamous.

Woo, some games! And boy, these are some games. I can't claim to be all that bothered by Guitar Hero: Metallica, but Simon Parkin loved it to the tune of 8/10, while Ellie went even more mental for Boom Blox: Bash Party.

For me though it's got to be inFamous on PS3. Not the world's best game, but extremely solid despite leaving you feeling a bit wimpy. I've had a hankering to go back and replay it ever since I finished it.

However, I'm probably more likely to spend at least a bit of the weekend with Virtua Tennis 2009, despite Kristan's reservations. And not least because the other game I'm playing at the moment is EA's Wii MotionPlus-powered Grand Slam Tennis, so I can claim VT is research.
