Velvet Assassin Features for Xbox 360

On: Xbox 360PC
Back to game info

Welcome to Heads-up,'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.


May 15 appears to be one of the weakest release dates we've seen in many weeks, with only a handful of titles scheduled to hit stores. Thankfully, one of those games is BattleStations Pacific, the sequel to Eidos' well received BattleStations Midway. The sequel features the same multi-vehicle combat and is once again not for action junkies. If you like your WW2 games to be high on tactics give this one a look, otherwise you might find Pacific's complexities a little too much to get to grips with.

Battlestations Pacific - Xbox 360 and PC

And the rest…
Namco Museum: Virtual Arcade - Xbox 360
Rock Revolution - Xbox 360,
Sports Island 2 - Wii

/runs from S_E_J, who appears to be calling forth Damnation! :p
In seriousness, though, I hope that game delivers. It could turn out to be a really nice surprise gem amongst that other lot, and perhaps, even this month's releases in general. In fact, I thought it was the week after, but instead, the retailers say otherwise.

I'm interested in Battlestations Pacific, but I think it will be a game I get when it comes down in price a bit.

I've heard that Rock Revolution is supposed to be terrible!
