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.


Recommended: Madden NFL 10 - Xbox 360, PS3, Wii, Ds, PSP and PS2

You might be wondering why we've highlighted an American sports game this week, but take a look down the list below at what else is out and you'll soon understand why. We're not the biggest Madden fans in the office (well, Wez claims to have played it loads), but we can see when a game is highly polished. By all accounts Madden 10 should please American Football fans - just don't buy it expecting something similar to PES or FIA only supersized.
