A look ahead to Friday's new releases.
Welcome to Heads-up, VideoGamer.com's weekly feature which gives you an at-a-glance run-down on the games you'll be able to buy or rent this weekend. Every Tuesday (Thursday in this case) we'll pick out the best of the bunch, link to our reviews and previews and keep you in the video game loop so you have enough time to pre-order for Friday's post. Time to splash the cash.
Recommendation of the Week: Race Driver: GRID, DS
There's not an awful lot to choose from this week, which pretty much makes Race Driver: GRID on the DS our recommendation of the week by default, but it also happens to be a solid racer. The DS port is clearly nowhere near as spectacular as the next-gen and PC versions of the game, but it's a nippy arcade racer with four-player multiplayer support and a track editor. On a handheld that's starved of good racers GRID is well worth a look. Just don't expect much more than a PSone era arcade racer.
