Other titles I've looked into this week include the retro shooter Double Kick Heroes and Gungho's new strategy title Volta-X.

As the name implies, it is a smaller version of the existing Battlefield for those up close and personal fights. Any song in the game can now be played on the Battlefield variants as well as Final Destination.
