FirstPlay Thursday – Week 30

Submitted by on Thursday, 28 October 2010One Comment

Lucy Porter is away again, so OPM’s Rachel Penny talks us through this special Halloween episode instead. There are previews of upcoming horror games such as Dead Space 2 and F.3.A.R., as well as a feature on the FirstPlay team’s scariest PlayStation moments, and the goriest screenshots ever.

If that’s all too frightening for you, there are also reviews of Fallout: New Vegas and WWE Smackdown vs. Raw 2011, a great feature on The Making of DJ Hero, and screenshots of the Ico and Shadow of the Colossus Collection and The Last Guardian.

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 30 = 1404MB

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

HD Reviews and Previews

Fallout: New Vegas review – still epic, but arguably not quite as epic as Fallout 3 – 8/10

WWE Smackdown vs. Raw 2011 review – not the best-looking fighting game ever, but arguably one of the most fun – 8/10

Reviews Round-up – FirstPlay’s verdict on more recent releases

  • Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock – tons of tracks and tons of fun, but doesn’t offer much that’s genuinely new – 7/10
  • EyePet: Move Edition – the PS Move makes the game much easier to use, and therefore, much better – 8/10
  • NHL 11 – the best of the series so far – 9/10
