What's New?

Burnout 2 sleeps around, Castlevania's back on GBA and there's a Viking Invasion afoot.

GameCube and Xbox owners finally get the best arcade racing game in recent history this week [what about Midnight Club II? -Ed] in the shape of Burnout 2, which we're still utterly smitten with.

Joining Burnout 2 on the shelves this week is Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow, the latest CV title on the GBA. We'll bring you a review of that soon. Likewise we'll bring you something on Medieval Total War: Viking Invasion, also out today, the expansion pack to an RTS Rob loves like a child.

The final game of note amongst this week's releases is Star Wars: The Clone Wars on the Xbox. It wasn't exactly brilliant on the GameCube, but this one has Live support, which might improve matters. We shall soon see.
