A handful of this week's newest games.
layStation 3 and Xbox 360 gamers looking to engage in a bit of counterterrorism need look no further than Rainbow Six Vegas 2. Continuing where the last game left off, this title is bound to be more evolutionary than revolutionary. Still, if the multiplayer is as polished as it was the last go-around and the game's writers were kept in check, Ubisoft might just have another hit on its hands.
I never thought I'd see the day that a Team Ninja game released for the Nintendo DS. Itagaki and company bring Ryu to the small screen this week by way of Ninja Gaiden Dragon Sword. Making use of both LCDs and implementing comprehensive stylus control, there's no doubt that this is shaping up to be a Ninja Gaiden like no other.
For anyone who's missed any of the last three Metal Gear Solid titles, Konami's got a great deal for you. Metal Gear Solid: The Essential Collection combines the premium versions of all three games in a single boxed set. Although no new content is offered (not even a preview of the upcoming MGS:4), its $30 price tag makes this PlayStation 2 compilation a virtual steal.
Though it may lack motion controls or new-fangled swing mechanics, Hot Shots Golf: Out of Bounds aims to bring that series' signature flair and arcade bent to new heights on the PlayStation 3. Holding with tradition, fun definitely appears to take precedence over realism. Take to the links this week in this high-definition update of a classic Sony series.
