The Wind Waker, Frontline Command, Midnight Club II, Project Zero, etc. Good week.
After failing to release anything interesting last week, the games industry has woken up and chucked up a handful of worthwhile releases, spearheaded by the phenomenal Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker, which we reviewed yesterday. Alongside Nintendo's opus we have World War II: Frontline Command from the Bitmaps (a very happy review going up soon), the Xbox port of Project Zero (review) and Rockstar's Midnight Club II, which we've just gotten our hands on. IGN (and others) have already been singing its praises Stateside.
Also out this week are the PS2, Xbox and Cube versions of NBA Street Volume 2, which we had a look at recently and Sony/Namco's MotoGP 3 on PS2 (not to be confused with THQ/Climax's rather excellent Xbox/PC version).
We're not even done yet. BloodRayne is also out this week, and it may not be brilliant but it's a good solid game at times, and Final Fantasy X makes its appearance on PS2 Platinum, too. All in all, it's a good week to be out at the shops.
