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.


Worth a look

Crysis: Maximum Edition is simply a collection of the original PC game, the stand-alone expansion Warhead and multiplayer mode Crysis Wars. While we don't usually cover re-releases or budget games, this is such a quality collection that it deserved a special mention. If you haven't already experienced Crysis, and you've got a PC that's up to scratch, get this ordered right now. Velvet Assassin isn't nearly as accomplished, but from what we've played will be worth a shot if you're into stealth and WW2. This is stealth through and through, so don't expect any MGS4-style pure action moments.
