Get Your Game On – 02.05.08

Posted: 04:30 PM ET

Among the dozen or so new games hitting retailers this week, there are three that are generating the biggest buzz.

Devil May Cry 4(Capcom) Devil May Cry 4

This longtime favorite, one of the first must-have titles for the Playstation 2, makes its next-gen console debut with this release, including its first appearance on the Xbox 360. DMC4 is also the debut of "Nero," who replaces longtime series lead character "Dante." New characters bring new combat to the game, with "Nero" boasting a "Devil Bringer" arm, allowing players to inflict maximum carnage as they battle their way through hordes of demons. (Rated: M for Mature; 360, Ps3, PC)

Turok (Touchstone) Turok

Everyone's favorite dinosaur hunter is back. Just don't call it a sequel. "Turok" has completely overhauled for this version of the game, a story-driven first-person-shooter. Players step into the role of "Joseph Turok," a former Black Ops commando trapped on a strange planet and fighting to survive against an enemy army – as well as ravenous, raging dinosaurs. Not for the faint of heart – and definitely not for kids. (Rated: M for Mature, 360, PS3, PC)

Bomberman Land (Hudson Games) Bomberman Land

The long-running Bomberman series of games gets a makeover for the Nintendo Wii with the release of "Bomberman Land." Instead of rehashing previous incarnations of the series, "Bomberman Land" goes for the casual gamer introducing 50 mini-games for players to work their way through. But longtime fans shouldn't despair, a special Battle Pack mode brings back the original Bomberman game experience for a taste of the old-school. (Rated: E for Everyone; Wii)

Sneak Peek:

Metal Gear Solid: The Essentials Collection (Konami) The Essentials

After months of rumors, Konami has announced they will be releasing a special edition of "Metal Gear Solid: The Essentials Collection." Scheduled for a March 18th release, just in time for the much-anticipated release of "Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots," the final installment of the series, the "Essentials" will include the original Playstation edition of Metal Gear Solid, the director's cut of Metal Gear Solid 2 and Metal Gear Solid 3 in a commemorative package. (Rated: M for Mature)

Don't expect too much out of Turok...the demo leaves MUCH to be desired.

if you'e looking for Turok to reinvent the wheel, then yeah you will be disappointed.
if you're just looking to kick some, then i think it delivers what it promises.

with 2 M Rated games on this list let me say to parents....start understanding video games, their content, and what your kids are playing. Stop dismissing video games as non-impactuful or not a legitimate form of entertainment, because they the past 2 years, video games have made more than Hollywood. Take the time to understand these games and stop being so quick to judge gamers or the video game industry, as one anti-gamer attorney has stated, godless murder merchants....

Come on Paul, you are just being unreasonable, expecting parents to raise there kids. Why do you think everyone owns 42+ inch TVs these says? The bigger the TV the better it babysits.:)

Seriously though, I agree. Parents need to be in tune with children and the tech they are playing with. As a gamer-dad I am lucky since I find keeping up with this easy and entertaining.

OT: I have never tried any of the DMC series, but I have fond memories of the earlier Turok games and would be looking forward to it... if my 360 was not broken... AGAIN. Time for a PS3? I -am- looking forward to GoW3.
