By Rebecca Smith, 30 days ago
As can be expected in the week leading up to the holidays, retail releases are non-existent. There isn't even as many digital releases to cover up that defecit this week either. ID@Xbox brings five titles, including the sequel to Asdivine Hearts, a crazy Japanese racing game, and the final title in the ID@Xbox Winter of Arcade. Elsewhere, Xbox finally gets the spiritual successor to Road Rash. For more information on each of those titles and more, check out the list below, and scroll to the bottom for prices and download links:

Final Star

22 Final Star achievements
Release date: December 20th
Only one sun remains in the known universe. As more distant civilizations rally to the Final Star, it was only a matter of time before a hostile alien race would arrive to seize control. The Final Star Armada, tasked with protecting its people from invading forces - has failed. You're all that remains of the fleet, and only an alliance with the dangerous (and untrustworthy) mercenary guild can get you the upgrades needed to fight off the invading forces.

Final Star is a shooter from Dynamic Voltage Games. It features non-linear gameplay with dozens of missions, a deep story, and role-playing style upgrades. You'll travel the vast galaxy completing missions to power yourself up. The action is intense and you'll need to plot your mission course carefully to ensure that your ships are powerful enough to contend with the massive alien fleet.
