This is really a poor game release list. There is probably nothing worth playing (that i know of), especially considering what was released last week and what will be released next week. What did you say? You are asking about the AC/DC Rockband pack? Well….
I got the AC/DC expansion pack of songs in December when it came out on the 360. The reviews were really critical of it being a standalone disc (meaning that you cannnot access the rest of the Rock Band songs while playing the AC/DC pack) and the high price for 18 tracks. I am an AC/DC fan so I decided to ignore this filthy propaganda and that it would be worth my Euros. Alas….. What really disappointed me was the audio quality of this pack. Even though I knew all songs were live recordings I expected the somewhat drop in sound quality to be more than compensated by the sensation of playing in front of a live audience. It was not. It feels like it’s just a poor recording. This, in spite of the fact that it contains most of the band’s best tracks. Therefore it just cannot be my game of the week.
Tom Clanncy’s: H.A.W.X (air combat) would have a chance of recommendation if I had bothered to play the demo. Patapon 2, the rythm based RTS game on the PSP would have been another candidate had I managed to find time to play the first game. Eat Lead and Battle Fantasia I really have no idea what they are and I think that might be a good thing.
Since I will go blindly, I will go based on what I have read and heard about a little shoot-em-up on the DS call Bing Band Mini. It’s really innovative in the way it uses the stylus for controlling the ship and shooting. Also I love the visuals and sound. Lastly, it has a lower price than usual at GBP17.99 or around EURO25 (play.com exchange rate!!).
This is a trailer of the game.
