There’s not a lot hitting the shelves this week, but there’s a lot of potential awesomeness in a re-release, an expansion pack, and a potentially amazing new adventure game. Unlike most weeks, all of the games on the list are available online only.
Battlefield Bad Company 2: Vietnam (360, PC, PS3)
The expansion pack for ‘Bad Company 2’ hits both PC and consoles today. It includes four new maps, six new vehicles, and 15 new weapons. As a special bonus, once the online community reaches 69,000,000 player actions, a fifth map will unlock.
Back to the Future: The Game (PC)
It’s hard to tell what to think of ‘Back to the Future: The Game’, but hopes are high. Telltale Interactive, which developed the game, is the same company behind the wildly successful ‘Sam & Max’ series. Christopher Lloyd lends his voice, though Michael J. Fox was not available to do his. On the plus side, they’ve got a dead-on impression in place.
The Oddboxx (PC)
If you’ve never played the ‘Oddworld’ games, you’re not alone. They were incredibly interesting but never garnered the attention they deserved. Now you can jump back and enjoy some of the most original games ever created. You can download ‘The Oddboxx’ now straight from Steam.
