Games also out this week

Games news

It's the first half-term of the year, which normally does the job of shaking the tree of game releases and unearthing some genuinely exciting titles.

Out this week are Strider (Xbox 360, PS3, PS4, Xbox One, PC), the reboot of an 80s arcade game that has you running from left to right, cracking the heads of all comers; Rayman Legends, the surprisingly excellent Gallic platform game, arrives for PS4 and Xbox One; there's distinctly Japanese-flavoured dungeon explorer Sorcery Saga: The Curse Of The Great Curry God (PS Vita); giant robotic extraterrestrial insect shooting game Earth Defence Force 2025 (Xbox 360, PS3); Freedom Cry, the first piece of extra story for Assassin's Creed 4, is released for PS3, PS4 and PC, having been released on other formats last year; and Far Cry: The Wild Expedition (Xbox 360, PS3, PC, pictured) comes with an HD remake of the original and Far Cries 2, 3 and Blood Dragon.
