As you read this, the fiftieth issue of OPM is sitting on the shelves, waiting for you to take it home and open its shiny, gold birthday wallet. Open it up and you’ll discover Kaká’s triumphant face on the cover, welcoming you to a world of top PlayStation news, previews, reviews and features.
And why’s Kaká so happy? Maybe because FIFA 11 gets reviewed. Word from editor Ben Wilson is that it’s “possibly the best football game ever made”. Strong words, especially as we also have a PES 2011 review to challenge it. Among other games getting scored are the astonishingly good Castlevania: Lords Of Shadow, the excellent Enslaved: Journey To The West and the slapstick gore of Dead Rising 2.
Because it’s our fiftieth issue we’ve also got a huge feature on the 50 greatest PlayStation games ever, as voted for by you. It’s the definitive list of gaming excellence and you’ll never guess what’s number one. Go on, try… Plus, industry greats like Insomniac’s Ted Price, Irrational Studio’s Ken Levine and Hideo Kojima drop by to say happy birthday and steal our cake.
Then there’s our exhaustive feature on Call Of Duty: Black Ops‘ multiplayer. Staff writer Joel Gregory went to visit Treyarch; to play through the new maps and game types, including the new Wager Mode. Honour the fallen: he got pwned so you don’t have to.
And, finally, we also have things like previews of Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit, Deus Ex: Human Revolution, inFamous 2 and Fallout: New Vegas, plus an interview with Tameem Antoniades, creative head of Ninja Theory – the studio behind Enslaved and the new Devil May Cry. And plenty more.
