★★★ As far as movie tie-in games go, Rise of the Man­hunters is en­tirely com­pe­tent. Its God of War-style com­bat is de­cent, if too easy, with a rea­son­able up­grade sys­tem, and the fly­ing se­quences pro­vide a good change of pace. While the graph­ics are merely pass­able, the pre­sen­ta­tion is solid, with voice work by Ryan Reynolds and drop-in, drop-out co­op­er­a­tive game­play. Worth a look for fans. Out now.

★★★★ THE mak­ers of Game Dev Story re­turn with an­other great strat­egy ti­tle. This time, play­ers are in charge of a rac­ing team and must man­age staff as well as build and up­grade cars. There’s great vis­ual feed­back on how play­ers are go­ing which ensures game­play stays fresh. As the game pro­gresses, races get more com­plex with more sur­faces to worry about, so hav­ing the right cars for the con­di­tions is crit­i­cal. Out now.
