The games this week are so huge they speak for themselves:
Assassin's Creed - The makers of Prince of Persia were given orders from Ubisoft to "redefine the action/adventure genre." With wide open recreations of real cities such as Damascus and Jerusalem during the 3rd Crusade, you can make use of every ledge, rooftop and even person in the town for your escape after you kill your mark.
Crysis - Ever played Far Cry? Bet you haven't played it with a super-suit, giving you unreal strength, speed, armour and a stealth mode a la Predator! You've all heard of this one, we hand Crytek's new technological breakthrough some rubber chickens.
Super Mario Galaxy - Supposedly the "true" successor to the classic Mario 64. What else needs to be said? It's freakin' Mario, man.
Plus we take a look at the slow death of arcades in Australia, and more Quarter-Circle A!
Good Game airs Tuesday nights on ABC2 @ 8:30pm, Thursday nights on ABC2 @ 10:30pm, and Friday nights on ABC @ around midnight. You can download or stream every segment or episode from www.abc.net.au/goodgame - don't forget to post on the forums and let us know what you think!

Enjoy the show :)
