Featured Game – Eternal Sonata (PS3)

Title: Eternal Sonata (PS3)
Format: Sony PlayStation 3

Eternal Sonata is definitely something diferent: an RPG based on the music and life of Chopin. There are a lot of unique features about the game, from the near real-time combat system and its innovative use of light and dark, to the soundtrack, and chapter breaks which tell the life story of the composer.

It has a slow start, buts builds pace steadily. As the action cuts between Chopin’s death bed and his dying dream the question is asked repeatedly about which world is real, and in fact whether it matters?

Beautiful cel-shaded graphics and, unsurprisingly, an excellent soundtrack, make this one to play if you can get hold of it.

Featured Game – Ghostbusters (PS3)

Title: Ghostbusters (PS3)
Format: Sony PlayStation 3


Released on a range of consoles, we played this on the PS3 version. The game is a light hearted follow-on from the films, where the four Ghostbusters have hired you as their new “Experimental Equipment Technician” (read “Guinnea pig”).

With the return of well-known faces from the films, a strong script, and great characters the game can provide hours of enjoyment – particualrly for fans. In places the game is rather linear, and can become a little standard. However, any boredom is quickly dispelled by the range of one-liners delivered by the original cast and a chance to see notable characters again.

A PS3 Special Edition was also released which contains the film on blu-ray and can be distinguished from the usual release by the blue tint on the cover, instead of standard green.
