FirstPlay Thursday… on Friday – Week 26

Submitted by on Friday, 1 October 2010One Comment

No you haven’t gone mad – it really is Friday, and this really is FirstPlay Thursday. Unfortunately, this week’s episode was taken off the PlayStation Store on Wednesday due to problems with pricing, so you’ve got FirstPlay Thursday today instead of yesterday.

Thankfully, there is some pretty good content this week, including reviews of FIFA 11 and F1 2010. There’s also a Blu-Ray review of Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time, a feature on the Official PlayStation Magazine’s top ten games ever, screenshot galleries of Bulletstorm and inFamous 2, and quite a bit more.

As always, this episode can be purchased for 99p, or you can save some money by taking out a 90-day subscription for £8.99.

Download size of Episode 26 = 1244MB

The complete contents of this week’s episode are as follows:

HD Reviews and Previews

F1 2010 review – all the racing action you’ll need to tide you over until Gran Turismo 5 – 9/10

FIFA 11 review – proof that all you need to do for a high review score is release the same game every year with minor improvements… I kid, I kid! – 10/10

Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Blu-Ray review – for a videogame-to-film crossover, this is actually pretty good – 7/10

Network Highlights

PixelJunk Racers: 2nd Lap review – still great fun, but doesn’t really add much – 6/10

OPM’s Greatest Games Ever: The Top Ten – to celebrate the Official PlayStation Magazine’s 50th issue, the team are counting down their favourite PlayStation games ever – we’ll give you three guesses as to what came first

Personal: MLB: The Show – Editor of OPM, Ben Wilson, talks us through why he loves MLB: The Show, and why it’s a tragedy that it’s not available in Europe

Video Store Round-up – the best (and worst) of what the Video Store has to offer

  • From Paris With Love – really stupid and kind of racist
  • Shutter Island – an awesome psychological journey
  • District 9 – if there are aliens out there, this film has probably put them off saying hello
  • State of Play – decent Hollywood remake of the classic BBC drama

Screenshot Galleries

Bulletstorm – apparently you can overload your rifle to fire 100 bullets in one shot!

Heroes on the Move – it turns out Ratchet & Clank, Jak & Daxter and Sly Cooper are mixing together quite nicely

inFamous 2 – a look at how Sucker Punch’s mega-sequel is shaping up

Mortal Kombat – this could possibly be the best-looking fighting game on PS3 (don’t tell Delriach!)
