Welcome to Heads-up, our 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 Monday 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 blow the dough.

Worth a look


EDF: Insect Armageddon and Cars 2 are both good fun if you're after some throwaway entertainment. Neither will be on anyone's game of the year list, but considering the summer drought we're thankful we've got anything decent to play. Cars 2 is definitely one for the younger gamers though, with adults likely to find the whole thing a little simple.

We don't normally include budget releases in Heads-up, but these three are worth considering if you've yet to play the games included. The Uncharted Double Pack is clearly the pick of the bunch, but Ratchet & Clank is an excellent series on PS3 too. Resistance isn't such a well-loved series, but with the third game out soon this double pack is the ideal way to get up to speed.

And the rest...

Most of this looks like complete rubbish, but Call of Juarez is certainly a cut above the Coronation Street game. This doesn't mean it's not a bit of a disappointment following the cult success of the previous entries in the series.
