AU Shippin' Out June 12-15: Forza, Shadowrun, and Kombat

Forza races onto Australian shelves, Shadowrun a close second.

It's a big week for Aussie racing enthusiasts, with Microsoft's coveted racing sim Forza Motorsport 2 finally speeding into local game stores. And it's not the only title coming out from the folks at Microsoft, with Live's flagship game Shadownrun also out down under. Both the Xbox 360 and Windows Vista versions of the game will be available in Australia this Thursday.

Another movie tie-in also sees a release this week, with Fantastic 4: Rise of the Silver Surfer for the Xbox 360, PS3, PS2, and DS hitting shelves a week before its film counterpart screens in Australia. The Mortal Kombat series is also making its debut on the Nintendo Wii with Mortal Kombat: Armageddon. The game was originally released on the Xbox and PlayStation 2 last October and is finally making its way to the Wii this week courtesy of distributors Red Ant.

Shadowrun is a good game, but it needs more maps and the addition of a couple more weapons/dual pistols

Forza Motorsport 2 is a really good game.Shadowrun,though,had alot of potential and it crashed.I still think Gamespot underated it,it should get like a 7.8.
