Our top pick of the week?
World War Z
After the film adaptation of the book was met with fairly mixed reviews, well mostly negative, it was a bit of a shock to hear that a game would be coming. While it may not be a tie in, or maybe it is if there is a sequel?
However while the film might have reached lacklustre heights the game looks to be an interesting addition to the co-op shooter genre with fun ideas and terrifying enemies.
Also, a special shout out to Ghost Giant which appears to be just dripping with charm.
