The Week in Games: One-Track Week

A very slight slate of offerings this week: Trackmania Wii is the headliner, largely by default. A version also arrives for DS on Tuesday. Wednesday on XBLA, look for the indie offering Limbo, from Playdead.

Tuesday, July 20

  • Trackmania Wii (Wii) - After years of talk, the cult-hit racer arrives on the Wii. TrackMania Turbo for the DS also is out on this day.

Also: DarkStar One: Broken Alliance (360); Arc Rise Fantasia (Wii); Samantha Swift and the Hidden Roses of Athena (DS); Cats & Dogs: The Revenge of Kitty Galore (DS).

Wednesday, July 21

  • Limbo (XBLA) - We've called it an "unsettling and deviously well-designed side-scrolling adventure of a boy set in a quietly hostile black-and-white world, with Super-Mario-simple mechanics."

Thursday, July 22

  • Zany Golf (Wii)

Looking Ahead

July 27: Starcraft II: Wings of Liberty. Aug 4: Castlevania Harmony of Despair. Aug. 10: Madden NFL 11, Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, Monday Night Combat, Lucha Libre AAA: Heroes of the Ring. Aug. 17: Kane & Lynch 2: Dog Days, Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light.
