    From David-Tennant.com:
    "Top Trumps have revealed their plans for a Doctor Who video game to be released in time for Christmas 2007.
    It is thought it will be available on PC, PS2, DS and Mobile.
    An advert for the game appears in the new Doctor Who Top Trumps card pack."

    Unfortunately it looks like it'll be like those 2 forthcoming Top Trumps games, and probably not some big exciting adventure/puzzle game that I long for. [​IMG]

    What no next gen? I won't get to see David Tennants face rendered in HD.

    I have a feeling the ds title is not going to be so good and that the phone title as all phone titles are will be just as bad.

    WTF Top Trumps isn't a video game it's a sorry excuse for a card game at best.

    Wake me up when there's a proper 3D Platformer for Doctor Who.

    I know, I was expecting at least something like the animated episodes of The Invasion.

    I am right in saying it will be a first for the BBC to be publishing a game?
    I am still conviced its going to be a bit of a bland run of the mill game that 10 year olds will force their parents to purchase.

    But they if they put spastic in the ds version at least we can buy 4333 copies for £10.

    No they've done loads of them. Many Robot War games that sucked, and fightbox which was worse. There are also two Dr Who games that appeared on various computers.

    I liked infinite quest... sure, it was cheap flash...
    but kinda cool, and quite an amusing story.
    as for this *ahem* "game" ....
    I really wish they wouldn't....
    unless it's going to be some hardcore next gen high def hotness, or using a wiimote for a laser/sonic screwdriver...

    I don't want to know.

    Theres an older one called "Doctor Who and The Mines of Terror" it was fairly decent, kinda adventure/puzzle/platform unlike the poor 1992 game which was just an action/platform game that just used the theme.
