Spring is in the air: as the flowers sprout, so too do new videogame releases. SingStar finally snips the chords with wireless mics, and the freedom - yours for GBP 34.99 - is welcome. SingStar Queen joins the party on PS3 and PS2, too.

Nintendo has a healthy array of titles to shout about, particularly Rockstar's excellent Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars for DS - which we awarded 10/10 - and SEGA's controversial MadWorld on Wii.

There are plenty of other Nintendo releases besides: Henry Hatsworth on DS, and Ready 2 Rumble: Revolution and Castlevania: Judgement on Wii.

Over on PSP there's Resistance: Retribution, the highly-recommended first-party exclusive the handheld so desperately needs.

WWE Legends of Wrestlemania provides the only multiplatform PS3 and Xbox 360 talking point, simply for resurrecting stars like Hulk Hogan, Andre the Giant and the one that fell off scaffolding into the ring.

HAWX and The Last Remnant make their way to PC, and Broken Sword is apparently still alive.
