Developer: Midway Games Inc
Publisher: Midway Games Inc
ESRB: Mature 17+
Genre: Sports
Details:

Taking players behind the glitz and glamour of professional American football through a revolutionary campaign mode, Blitz: The League explores the on-field violence, off-field fallout and front-office politics feeding the headlines in America’s media spotlight. Unlicensed and uncensored, the new version of Blitz: The League is scheduled for release across Europe on 23rd February 2007 on Xbox 360 with a R.R.P. in the UK of £29.99..

In North America the game has sold over a million units and gained a grass-roots reputation for being even more hardcore than professional American football itself. The bone-crushing action delivers a punch in more ways than one. Players can create and develop the greatest teams in the League’s history using a wealth of customizable options in an attempt to take their squads to the very top of the league standings. An unleash meter in the game also allows players to slow down play and pull off drastic moves, break free of tackles and evade opponent players. This hardcore adrenaline spectacular is playable in single and multiplayer modes, as well as via the Xbox Live® online game service. Awesome!

Blitz: The League stars American Football legend, Lawrence Taylor, as Quentin Sands, and Bill Romanowski as linebacker Bruno Batagglia.

“Blitz: The League is free of the constraints that an official league license levies against games in this sporting genre. The result is about as far removed from a clean, fair, sporting experience as it’s possible to get – one of the many reasons why this game has been such a storming success in the US with sales of 1 million units, and why consumers have demanded we release it in Europe,” said Martin Spiess, Managing Director -Europe, Midway Games Ltd.

Sudoku Master – ds

ESRB: Everyone
Genre: Puzzle
Details:

Sudoku Master is the ultimate collection of more than 400 Sudoku puzzles and allows you to play a different game at any time!. If you haven’t played it before, the rules are fairly simple. The aim of the numerical logic-based puzzle is to enter a number ranging from one to nine in each cell of a nine by nine grid, made up of nine three by three sub-grids. Each puzzle starts off with some numbers already provided in a few cells – these are the hints. As the puzzles increase in difficulty, players find the number of hints given decreases. It is then up to the player to make sure that each row, column and three by three sub-grids have only one instance of each number. Sudoku Master requires patience and lots of lateral thinking ability to complete it successfully!

Sudoku Master contains three difficulty settings so every player will find puzzles to suit them. Solving time varies from player to player; depending on their skill and experience a puzzle can take anywhere between 10 – 30 minutes to complete. For those new to Sudoku, the game offers a practice mode where numbers that are incorrectly entered automatically turn red, thus telling players that they have entered the wrong number. On top of this, there is also a thorough tutorial explaining the rules as well as offering some helpful tips along the way.

By using the Nintendo DS touch screen players have two methods for entering the numbers into the cells; either by writing them in or by selecting the appropriate number by touching the keys on a number pad. Sudoku Master also contains many helpful features to aid the player. Players can highlight entire rows or columns, making it possible to keep an overview of where the numbers are on the grid. It is also possible to highlight all instances of the same number at once, and to store notes (in a smaller font size) inside the grid to keep track of the problem’s structure. All provide a useful edge for solving complex puzzles.

When players successfully solve puzzles they also earn stars. The faster a problem is solved the greater the number of stars received. When enough stars have been collected, players gain access to Rank Mode. Here they are challenged to complete puzzles in a set period of time and awarded a rank. The faster the challenge is completed, the higher the rank received.

Genre: Sim

Players will also be able to teach their pet new tricks, take them for a romp in the park, outfit them with new pet accessories and even give them a job! As in real life, your Sims’ pet will require care and training. A neglected cat with an urge to scratch might claw up your new couch if you aren’t careful, and leaving your dog unattended near a freshly planted flower bed probably isn’t wise!

“The Sims 2 Pets captures the magic between pets and their owners,” said Executive Producer Rod Humble. “A dog gnawing at his chew toy, a cat jumping at a dangled feather, a toddler stroking the chest of a big dog who sits by patiently—even a frisky dog getting caught rolling around in the trash. These special moments all come to life through the lifelike animations and artwork of The Sims 2 Pets. There is something delightful about your Sim, a little pet person, having a pet of their own. Pets allows players to tell more stories with their Sims and helps create more emergent anecdotes within the game.”
