Surf’s Up

The combination of big waves, sand, sun and cuddly animals can only mean the weather’s about to get a whole lot warmer soon, and even if the people have grown a bit weary of games based on blockbuster movies, this one isn’t to be missed. It’s got all the fun of the coming the cinematic release, plus it’s greatly interactive. Lots of colorful locations, possible surf moves and a variety of captivating soundtrack songs culminate in an experience that won’t merely entertain but also teach kids about the oft neglected realm of water sports. Surf’s Up continues the trend towards realistic physics modeling, so dive right in, the water’s fine.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix

Yes, there’s a new Harry Potter coming and for this installemt it’ll be just as hard to say no as ever. Especially since now the titular Harry is growing ever more mature, leading his fellow young wizards in a campaign against dark forces threatening to overwhelm Hogwarts and venerable Dumbledore. The adventure has a whole plethora of spells and combat skills, as well as several playable characters that’ll be more than familiar to fans of the series. Management aspects mean players can recruit new wizards to fight on the side of good with the motivation of zealous school kids on summer break.

The buxom Lara promises to look better than ever for this puzzle-rich actioner, so pack your trail mixes and get ready for a holiday like none before.

The Bigs

Even if you’re not inclined towards America’s favorite pastime, The Bigs appears to be the kind of innovative sports game that defies tradition and begs everyone’s attention. As its name alludes to (among other things), it’s all a bit over the top, with the old baseball formula getting reinforced by way of radical effects such as extreme weather phenomena that affect gameplay as previously unseen. Teams and characters are all fully licensed from Major League Baseball and look amazingly real. This is the first baseball title we can think of where players can earn supernatural power ups, which literally puts a spin on this ball game.
