Next Week… 16th–23rd

Welcome to the second edition of “Next Week” (we’ve made it to number two guys, this could be a keeper!). After lasts weeks glorious edition (that contained a few mistakes as some releases slips, shhhh!!) that brought us games such as Burnout Legends and Fahrenheit (which you should be playing now if you listened to our opinion) what could we possibly do to make this weeks edition any better!

Well first we are clipping the “games of the week” down to a “game of the week” meaning the title listed will be a real must buy! Now onto what’s happening this week. Well, both Xbox and PS2 owners should be salivating at the prospect the second Burnout game within the span of a week speeding towards them on the 23rd in the form of Burnout Revenge. If you’re a fan of Nintendo and love wrestling then WWE Day Of Reckoning 2 should liven up your week that will be hitting the Cube this weeks as it is also be released on the 23rd of this month. It’s also been hailed as the best wrestling title to hit the GameCube since release which is always a nice thing to hear. This is also a great week for handheld fans as both Meteos and Twisted Metal: Head-on are heading the DS and PSP respectively which are two big names titles sure to get chart positions the following week. Finally PC owners have both Fable: The Lost Chapters and a Dawn of War expansion pack heading there way.

Game Of the Week

The sequel to 2004’s critically-acclaimed hit Burnout 3: Takedown, Burnout Revenge straps gamers into the fastest, most dangerous racer on the road. Fight dirty or go down in flames – the only rule is complete automotive anarchy. Built for unprecedented destruction, Burnout Revenge challenges gamers to exact their revenge on rush hour traffic, vindictive rival racers and anything else that gets between them and the finish line. And when gamers are ready to take their rage on the road, a massive suite of online modes and features open up endless possibilities to slam, shunt and stonewall new enemies all over the world. Happy hunting!

Revenge is sweet – It’s not about winning, it’s about vengeance. An all-new revenge meter tracks underhanded tactics and leads gamers down the path to the ultimate payback. Fight dirty and get rewarded.
Check traffic – Think hockey on the highway. Now every vehicle on the road is in play and a potential target[/b] – or weapon. Ram traffic into your rivals, slam cars into vicious combo-based pile-ups and lay waste to everything in sight. Don’t fear traffic – fight it.
Traffic attack – An all-new traffic attack mode pits gamers against the clock in a mad dash for destruction. It’s not about dodging traffic, it’s about leveling it by any means necessary.
Crash redefined – Show Hollywood how it’s done with all-new open-ended crash junctions. With multiple start points, complex, vertically-oriented tracks and hundreds of cars begging to be decimated, Burnout Revenge is the king of crash.
Grudge match – Punish a rival enough and they’ll develop a grudge – and then you’ll need to take care of them personally in an all-new grudge match.
Built to battle – Designed for maximum carnage, Burnout Revenge’s tracks are loaded with massive jumps, multiple paths and nasty chokepoints to deliver the ultimate brutal car combat. Vertical takedowns and in-race crashbreakers open up new avenues for destruction.
Car deformation – with more that 3 times the car deformation in Burnout 3: Takedown, Burnout Revenge lets gamers literally rip cars to shreds.
Car classes – All-new cars in three classes accentuate different play styles and power ups, physically transforming as they become more powerful
