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: Tiger Woods PGA Tour 09, Xbox 360, PS3, Wii, PS2, DS, PSP
We have to admit that we're suckers for EA's golf series. Having already sunk hours into a pre-release version of Tiger 09 on PS3 we can't wait for the final retail disc to arrive so it's very easy to recommend the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions of Tiger 09. With improved visuals, tweaked controls, a new coach mode and enhanced GamerNet features this year's edition seems pretty stacked. The game is also due for release on Wii, PS2, PSP and DS, with the Wii game looking most likely to sell to the masses. We've yet to get our mitts on those though, so buy at your own risk.
Also out this week
Too Human, Xbox 360: Reviewing Too Human gave Wez quite a headache. He found the game to be pretty terrible and incredibly addictive at the same time. The storyline is weak, the graphics engine is un-optimised and the camera is woeful, but there's an awful lot of loot. If you like collecting loot you'll find Too Human saps away hours like a Wraith consumes human life force. The game isn't even that long, but getting to the end of the story isn't nearly all the game has to offer. It might not be the incredible gaming experience it was billed as, but once you're hooked it's hard to let go.
