FirstPlay Thursday – Week 29

Submitted by on Thursday, 21 October 20105 Comments

This week there are reviews of the remastered version of Medal of Honor: Frontline and recent PSN games Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light and Worms 2: Armageddon, as well as previews of LittleBigPlanet 2 and Vanquish.

There’s also a new feature called Head to Head (which sees two members of the FirstPlay team battle it out over which of two games is the best), a look at what’s new on the Digital Comics Store, and screenshot galleries of the epic MMO Final Fantasy XIV and upcoming PSN title Swarm.

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 29 = 1260MB

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

HD Reviews and Previews

Medal of Honor: Frontline review – apparently it hasn’t aged well, but you can’t complain about free! – 6/10

LittleBigPlanet 2 preview – a look at the awesome beta, although no one seems to have told FirstPlay that the game has been delayed until 2011

Vanquish preview – it’s a shame this isn’t a review (the game is out this week), but it still looks awesome

Robin Hood Blu-Ray review – one of the biggest disappointments of the year – 5/10

Network Highlights

Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light review – great gameplay and tons of content means this is one of the PSN’s best games – 9/10

Worms 2: Armageddon review – a fun new title in a fifteen year old series – 7/10

Head to Head: Battlefield Vs Modern Warfare 2 – Assistant Producer James Jarvis, and Video Editor Paul Stevenson, argue about which is the PS3’s best online shooter
