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 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: God of War 2
Released as part of the Platinum range, God of War 2 is now available for the bargain price of only £14.99. For those yet to pick up this bloody, action sequel, now is the time especially given the barren landscape that is the release schedule. Kratos returns and is quickly returned to his non-godly form and once again finds himself battling monsters from Greek mythology.
Those with a backwards compatible PlayStation 3 or PlayStation 2 should pick up God of War 2 without reservation. As Tom points out in his review: "If Sony were to choose a game to see off the greatest console of the previous generation, God of War 2 would be it."
Also released this week is Ratchet & Clank: Size Matters Platinum for PSP, making the very solid action platformer available for only £14.99. After a very solid run on PS2 the game made its PSP debut last summer and delivered the goods, scoring a very commendable 9/10 in the VideoGamer.com review.
With only three titles hitting stores this week, Activision's World Series of Poker - Battle of the Bracelets for Nintendo DS rounds-up the new titles.
