Time Off: Weekend: GAME Check.
Sounds like a turkey in the making, but this game is a riot.
All your characters are here, from Donkey to Prince Charming, Pussin-Boots to Princess Fiona, each with their own signature moves, such as Shrek's gaseous ' Green Storm' which clears the room. Additional weapons and magic potions boost your character's power during bouts, and with fully destructible environments no two scraps will be the same.
Throw in a multiplayer mode and you've got one of the best moviewrestling tie-ins to date - are there any others
Title: SpongeBob SquarePants: Lights, Camera, PANTS! Platform: PS2 Price: pounds 29.99
BIKINI Bottom is abuzz! The producers of everyone's favourite superhero show, 'The Adventures Of Mermaid Man & Barnacle Boy', are filming a special episode in Bikini Bottom and they're using the residents as actors.
All the favourite locals are desperate to impress the talent scouts who have created a series of action-packed challenges to test the wannabe actors. For 'actionpacked challenges', read minigames, which take us down the Mario Party route, albeit with nowhere near the 80 on offer in Mushroom Kingdom.
That said, the presentation of SpongeBob and co is far superior and it successfully captures the style and humour of the popular cartoon. Younger gamers will revel in it
