While at first it may seem an odd choice of licence for a game in the flying genre, it in fact makes perfect sense. Snoopy was made famous as a character in Charles Schultz's Peanuts comic strip. "Snoopy Vs The Red Baron" was a recurring storyline within the strip, where Snoopy imagined himself as a Great War hero, taking on the infamous Red Baron. The biggest problem ahead is overcoming the Snoopy image and attracting non-fans. It can be very easy to write this off as a cheap cash in on a licence aimed at kids. To do so would see you missing out on a true gem.

Here at Gamestyle we're firm believers of giving our straight opinion on games, regardless of outside influence. We are not the sort to be easily swayed by marketing spin, the hyperbole of games journalists or the often-vocal fanbases. This is a rare occasion when the hype can actually be justified; Super Mario Galaxy 2 is, quite simply, a masterpiece.
Blur takes some time to get going, mainly because at first it doesn't exactly know what it wants to be. While the marketing portrays it as a grown up Mario Kart, it feels like an arcade racer due to the ridiculous speed and locations with simulator handling. In reality it's a little bit of all three, and while it might mix the thrills of other franchises it makes for an addictive formula.
The appeal of certain items of Japanese culture is completely alien to some of us here at Gamestyle Towers. Rather like how the Japanese don't understand why first-person shooters are so popular in the West, we have always found the appeal of the Monster Hunter series very difficult to grasp. This latest iteration doesn't do much to change our view.
No More Heroes is one of the few must-have titles for the Wii, and now its sequel has finally arrived in PAL regions after doing the rounds in America.
I'm thinking that a nice future feature for Gamestyle would be to have fields in our database for recording chart positions of games. There's lots of geeky stats to be pulled from videogames, and to have a graph on each game page that plots week-on-week chart positions would be quite a nice touch.
It'll be added to the road map - but there's many more stops we have to get to first. So, in the meantime, here's this week's charts:
01 - Red Dead Redemption
02 - UFC 2010: Undisputed
03 - 2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa
04 - Just Dance
05 - Wii Fit Plus

07 - Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2
08 - Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands
09 - Lost Planet 2
10 - Wii Sports Resort
11 - Battlefield: Bad Company 2
