It's the May Day Bank Holiday weekend, which means we all get an extra day off. So with the weather being predictably unpredictable, why not spend it in the company of some great games?
Here's our handy guide for some of the best games to enjoy this bank holiday weekend, with ideas for children, for friends and family, or for getting some serious single-player gaming done!
Games for the kids:
If you have a kids and a Kinect, there's really only one choice - Kinect Rush: A Disney Pixar Adventure, giving the chance for the little ones to play along with all their favourite Pixar characters, like Woody and Buzz, Remy the Rat, Lightning McQueen and the Incredibles. Kids will love using the Kinect to interact with their Pixar friends, lifting, steering, flying, swimming and smashing their way through a variety of fun games that will keep them occupied for hours, and feeling like they're part of the story.
For more quirky fun with their favourite characters, it's hard to go wrong with our wide choice of LEGO games. Kids can take a trip to Hogwarts and help Harry Potter and chums defeat Voldemort, set sail with the Pirates of the Caribbean, use the Force in Star Wars, or hero-up alongside Batman or Indiana Jones. With classic adventures recreated in LEGO's trademark building blocks, and delivered with LEGO's trademark sense of humour, there's plenty for kids of all ages to enjoy - and for parents to enjoy once the children have gone to bed!
Skylanders continue to be a big hit with the kids, and you'll be a big hit with your kids if you bring Skylanders home! The age-old battle of good versus evil is brought to life not only through the video game itself, but enhanced by the collection of character toys that interact with the game. There's a whole host of cool characters to collect and who join are brought to life in the game via the Portal of Power, so the opportunities for new games and new challenges are endless!
Games for friends and family:
When's the plenty of people round, a little friendly competition always goes a long way. Where better to find out who's best than at the Olympic games? And who better to play with than Mario and Sonic? Well, as luck would have it, Mario and Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games is chock full of fun contests that test a wide variety of skills, with unique ways of interacting with the action. There's everything from sprinting to table tennis, canoeing to show-jumping, as well as some imaginative twists in the 'Dream' events, like a long-jump that takes you flying from cloud to cloud. And all for a lot less than a ticket to the real Olympics!
If you - or your party - starts to get a bit more active, then there's always Just Dance 3. The latest chapter in the hugely successful dancing game series continues to challenge all to bust their best moves. This time there's an even wider variety of dancefloor-classic songs from almost every era and a range of different game modes to keep the party fresh and four-player action for the ultimate dance-off! It's compatible with Wii, PlayStation Move and Kinect, and pushes motion controls to their funky limits!
Games on your own:
Looking for a game to put some serious single-player hours into? Well, you can always journey into space with Mass Effect 3, one of the biggest and most talked-about games of the year. This sci-fi adventure is as much an in-depth role-playing experience as it is a third-person shooter, promising a journey where you choices really define the way the game is played. Thousands of people all over the world have committed almost as many hours following Commander Shepard across the Trilogy, so why not spend this weekend finding out just why?
If you prefer your role-playing a little more traditional, then the Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim and Pandora's Tower are two fantastic offerings. Questing in fantasy worlds, battling mythical beasts, swords, sorcery and an ending based on how you play - the whole RPG experienced wrapped up in a complete package! Skyrim offers a first-person adventure and dragons, while Pandora's Tower gives you classical music and a very personal quest. Either game will take up your entire weekend!
For time consumption of a different kind, Minecraft has finally made its way to Xbox 360 thanks to Xbox LIVE. This 8-bit phenomenon has become a global cult classic, with it's simple sandbox gameplay: mine things and then build things. What sounds so simple becomes perilously addictive as your skills and ambitions become greater and greater still, and the long weekend is ideal to get settled into a time-sucking game like this!
It all just clicks into place
We've had Indiana Jones in a plastic fedora and Luke Skywalker with sharp corners. Now it's Gotham City's turn for the shiny, bricky, platform makeover. And if you know the Lego series, you'll appreciate that - unlike Christian Bale and his grumpy-chops growling Dark Knight - this adventure won't be taking itself very seriously at all.
A bit of a Joker
Lego Batman steps away from the depressing darkness that smothered the recent movies, and borrows instead from the comics, the Tim Burton films and even - thanks to pastel-clothed villains and lots of self-consciously silly cut-scenes - the camp crusading of the '60s TV show.
And it goes further than that. Ever seen a giant, rideable, Lego dinosaur skeleton in a Batman story? You have now.
This has great heaping spoonfuls of the idiotic fun that the Lego games do so well.
So, yes, this has great heaping spoonfuls of the idiotic fun that the Lego games do so well. You smash enemies and the environment; pull the odd puzzly lever; greedily gobble up the collectible studs that fountain from just about everything; for sheer craftsmanship, the Lego series rivals even the mighty Mario titles.
Missions drag you from the depths of Gotham's sewers to the heights of its cathedral, and range from bank heist foiling to city-street racing. Gotham's undesirables aren't simply wheeled on and off stage for boss fights, either. In a neat twist, you get to play each level as both heroes (Batman and Robin) and villains (The Joker, The Riddler, Catwoman and more).
Happily, Lego Batman takes a bold Batrope-swing away from the 'R2D2-activates-R2D2-door' tedium of Lego Star Wars' worst puzzles. Different characters come with bespoke abilities while Batman and Robin get secret-unlocking suit upgrades such as gliding powers and magnet-o-boots. Well, we never said it was too faithful to the comics.
Ever seen a giant, rideable, Lego dinosaur skeleton in a Batman story? You have now.
There's a real thrill in progressing through Lego Batman and seeing the hub worlds - the Bat-Cave for the goodies; Arkham Asylum for the baddies - teem with new playable characters. While two-player co-op is a riot of most-loved and most-hated Batman characters (as well as unholy ‘kill-it-for-the-love-of-God’ mutants from the mix-and-match character creation).
Whether your chosen character's grin is sincere or maliciously evil, it's the vehicle bits that truly shine. As well as those dinosaurs, you get some exhilarating Batmobile levels, the bomb-dragging Batcopter and, perhaps unexpectedly, a giant green enemy-munching Batcrocodile.
Complaints? On Wii, control is disappointingly restricted to pointer-controlled Batarang action. It's simpler just to Batawhack the hordes with your fists, in true '60s WHAP-BIFF style. And the game is far too keen to take evil advantage of your endless lives, running you into (brick) walls of enemies that almost never end. There's nothing more annoying than swarms of troops distracting you from constructing that giant Lego skeleton dinosaur.
But, like the rest of this sparkling series, Lego Batman is a true family game. It’s approachable and funny for kids; bursting with secrets and Batman nods for the grown-ups. And did we mention the dinosaurs?
- Gaming so pure you could bottle it.
- A mountain of extras, secrets and cheats to unlock. Replayability that breaks the replayability-o-meter.
- The best Lego vehicle sections yet, and possibly the best Batmobile levels in any game, ever.
- Stay out of Gotham if you're expecting something revolutionary from your Lego-based gaming.
- Takes a little too much pleasure in repeatedly killing you off.
- A minimal amount of Wii remote functionality.
