Slim pickings on the releases this week
Out April 5:
"Carnival Games: Monkey See, Monkey Do"
From 2K Games for 360, $49.99
I've reviewed several of the "Carnival" games for the Wii and, in my critical opinion, none of them were worth even a rental.
The franchise has sold very well, though. So, what do I know? The 360 version will use the Kinect motion-sensor controller, but with only 20 games, that means you're paying about $2.50 a game.
"Karaoke Revolution Glee: Volume 2"
From Konami for Wii, $49.99 (with microphone), $39.99 (without microphone)
"Remington Super Slam Hunting Alaska:
From Jack of All Trades for Wii, $19.99
Damn you, Sarah Palin. I hear the words "hunting" and "Alaska" and all I see is this:
You have ruined hunting for me, Ms. Palin. I kid. I kid. It wasn't Palin. It was "Bambi."
Out April 10:
"Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell 3D"
From Ubisoft for Nintendo 3DS, $39.99
Sneak around the North Korean peninsula as super-spy Sam Fisher as you try to prevent World War III (again). Now in 3D courtesy to the Nintendo 3DS.
The original "Splinter Cell" was a killer app for the original Xbox and 3DS titles have been fairly lackluster. Could this be the first "must have" for the 3DS?
