Official PlayStation Magazine UK new issue: Sleeping Dogs review, Star Wars 1313 and more
This month’s issue is all about Star Wars 1313. We sent Phil over to the US to meet with LucasArts and ILM to talk all about latest adventure in a galaxy far, far away. Elsewhere we’ve been playing Dishonored, Dead Space 3 and Tomb Raider, plus we’ve got the Sleeping Dogs PS3 review and loads more.
First up we’ve been playing Dead Space 3 and discover the same scary gameplay from the previous installments is still intact despite the new co-op spin. We get hands on with a number of new levels and experience both single player and co-op missions. We also chat to Dead Space’s creative director Steve Papoutsis to really get an insight into the game’s creation. Here’s some Dead Space 3 screens if you want to see more of the game in action.
Like the headline says Star Wars 1313 really is new hope for gaming. It’s an astonishingly pretty game that’s channeling a mix of George Lucas’ world and Uncharted gameplay. The crucial twist here however is that it’s using the full might of ILM and the movie industry to create an unparalleled level of cinematic action. This Star Wars 1313 video interview gives you a taster of what to expect in the full feature.
Yet more hands on with Dishonored, possibly the most exciting game of the year. We’ve tried out its opening ended assassinations, spent time as a fish and giggled probably a bit too much every time someone said, “use your Wind Blast”. It really is a special game, though. Think Deus Ex with magic and you’re there.
If you want games but hate spending money then our Twenty Under Twenty feature should be right up your wallet-clutching street. Twenty amazing games for less than £20. It’s all there from obvious classics to cult hit and oddballs choices. All at super cheap prices.
Then there’s this. Our Sleeping Dogs review. Obviously I’m not going to tell you the score here (stay tuned though for more info) but safe to say Ben really liked it. Like, loads, won’t-stop-talking-about-it levels of like. Read the review to find out why.
That’s only a taster of the news, previews, reviews, opinions and features packed into this month’s issue.
