This week is nowhere near as packed as the last, but there are still quite a few noteworthy releases. Daniel Craigâ€™s James Bond has a number of outings this week, one of them from Project Gotham Racing alumni Bizarre Creations. James Bond 007: Bloodstone on Xbox 360, PS3 and PC features the likeness and voices of Daniel Craig as 007, Judi Dench as M and Joss Stone as the latest Bond interest. The game combines cover-based shooting, hand-to-hand combat and chase sequences in a brand new James Bond adventure. James Bond 007: Bloodstone is released on Wednesday.
The next game on the multiplatform front is Dragon Ball: Raging Blast 2, which arrives on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 from Thursday. The final set of games to be released this week can only be found on a single platform. In God of War: Ghosts of Sparta on PlayStation Portable, Kratos may have defeated Ares and ascended to Olympus, but new threats continue to emerge. Featuring a new combat and weapon system, more varied gameplay than Chain of Olympus and some of the best graphics on the PSP, God of War: Ghosts of Sparta already has video game critics excited. Finally, soccer tacticians will be eager to play Football Manager 2011 on PC.
But now, strap on your parachute and rekindle some old memories with our featured game of the week.
