FirstPlay Thursday – Week 38

Submitted by on Thursday, 23 December 2010One Comment

FirstPlay has gone all festive this week, with a whole host of holiday-themed content, including a review of the year, a round-up of the best Christmas films, and even some free gifts in the form of a dynamic theme celebrating OPM reaching fifty issues and a couple of free avatars.

However, if you’re one of those people that hate Christmas specials, then there’s plenty of content for you too, including reviews of Tron: Evolution and the Prince of Persia Trilogy, screenshot galleries of Brink and Mass Effect 2, plus much 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 38 = 1524MB

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

HD Reviews and Previews

Reviews Round-up

  • Tron: Evolution – okay for a movie tie-in, but unoriginal and repetitive – 6/10
  • CSI: Fatal Conspiracy – terrible visuals, but its story is occasionally interesting – 5/10
  • Prince of Persia Trilogy – terrific value and still hugely playable – 8/10

Dirt 3 preview – could potentially be 2011’s biggest racer

2010 Review: The Year on PS3 – an entertaining look back at the year’s best games (although we don’t know how they somehow forgot Final Fantasy XIII)

Toy Story 3 Blu-Ray review – rounding off what is officially the best movie trilogy ever – 10/10

Network Highlights

Medal of Honor Online Guide Pt2 – the second half of FirstPlay’s guide to not dying on the battlefield

Personal: SingStar Tracks – FirstPlay reveal the tracks they’ll be singing at the Christmas party

Video Store Round-up

  • Santa Claus: The Movie – the best worst Christmas film ever
  • Die Hard – what? It’s set at Christmas!
  • Disney’s A Christmas Carol – a charming, atmospheric retelling of a classic

Screenshot Galleries

Brink – a quick look at Splash Damage’s incredible FPS

de Blob 2 – a look at the sequel to the innovative puzzler platformer

Deus Ex: Human Revolution – could be the best stealth shooter since MGS4

Mass Effect 2 – Mass Effect 2 + Mass Effect 3 engine = awesome!

Wildlife: Forest Survival – ever wanted to know which animal is the toughest? Us neither to be honest, but apparently EA does
