It took some time, but there is now one reason to get a PS3 – apart from having a current-gen console in the house when the Xbox 360 is taking a trip to Germany for repair – Super Stardust HD. Eurogamer’s review (above) gave it a whoppin’ 9/10 and Penny Arcade’s Tycho said it’s “fucking fantastic”.
Okay, I’m not buying a PS3 for a single downloadable, old-school shooter, but this is still the first time I’ve felt a little bit tempted. It makes me all warm and fuzzy inside to know that the downloadable game is Finnish in origin. Nice going, Housemarque. I wonder what you’ve been up to since Transworld Snowboarding though. I loved Supreme Snowboarding on the PC – actually, I think there hasn’t been a decent snowboarding game on the PC since.
