Best games you can play this week – Boots and bashing

This week marks a release of one of the biggest games of the year, along with a host of smaller but interesting titles to get your hands on.

Call of Duty: World War II

3 November (Xbox One, PS4, PC)

This year’s Call of Duty leaves behind the space battles, jet packs, and futuristic weaponry, in favour of a WWII shooter reminiscent of the franchise’s roots.

Far more focus has been placed on the gritty, “boots on the ground” single-player campaign (which also likenesses and voice talents of Transformers’ Josh Duhamel and Jeffrey Pierce of Justified and The Last of Us). But of course, multiplayer is always the real meat of any COD game, and WWII promises to bring the biggest and most comprehensive online component to date.

Cartoon Network Battle Crashers

31 October (Switch); also on Xbox One, PS4, 3DS.

There’s been a lack of some classic old-school side-scrolling beat-’em-ups in recent times, but thankfully Battle Crashers gave us some of that nostalgia when the game arrived on Xbox One, PS4, and 3DS last year.

Cartoon Network: Battle Crashers now lands on the Switch, and if you don’t know about it, it’s a light-hearted action game that allows players to take on the game solo or via co-op, and utilise some of Cartoon Network’s most beloved character’s unique attacks and special moves to take on bad guys, bosses and overcome environmental hazards.
