    Default Every Single Wii Game

    Every Single Wii Game





    Because Playing = Believing...

    Welcome to the reworking of Every Single Wii Game! It's a shame to say goodbye to the old thread but I'm afraid I had no choice; for Wii had simply got too many games, and I had hit a word limit. Here's hoping that Wii will continue to thrive! So what do we have here then? Well, I've double-checked every game to ensure all information is as up to date as possible as well as giving more full "In One Phrase:"s so you know what to expect from a game at a glance. I've also included a "Release Date:" system telling you when you can get the game or that it's out now! Finally, now that I have lots of extra space, there's going to be lots more features that you will begin to see over the coming days and weeks.

    Although I didn't get as much feedback as I would have liked with the last thread, I did appreciate all efforts made to keep it going and I would like to thank you all for that. Please continue to support Every Single Wii Game by just posting any new info you have or even if you just want to talk about a specific game. Also, I want to be writing game profiles like before so if any of you want to help with that then it would be extremely appreciated.

    You won't find a more up-to-date, organised compilation of Wii games anyway on the net so please, please support this thread. If you plagiarise it or copy any section of it then be warned that the consequences will not be light. Good citizens please help me hunt down the "copiers". So, long live the Wii and long live this thread!

    But, before you go off browsing there are a number of people I would like to mention and a number of places I would like you to link to:


    This is a link to the popular WiiDS Club, of which anyone can join if they have enthusiasm for Nintendo's two latest and greatest consoles.


    This is a link to the Official Nintendo Wii Thread by Thunder Child which details literally all the information you would ever want to know about the Wii hardware. It's worth a look.

    A

    Action Girlz Racing
    Publisher: Metro 3D
    Developer: Data Design Interactive
    Genre: Racing
    Release Date: 2007 (PAL Regions Only)
    In One Phrase: Meet Kat, Latisha, Bianca, Amber, Akiko, Blossom and Courtney. These are the action girls and they're going head-to-head as they race through hotel resorts, fairytale castles and even school corridors. Could you get more stereotypically girly? I don't think so!

    Agatha Christie: And Then There Were None
    Publisher: The Adventure Company
    Developer: AWE Games
    Genre: Point-and-Click Mystery
    Release Date: November, 2007
    In One Phrase: The legendary mystery writer Agatha Christie has a work turned into game form for Wii and PC formats. A captivating story about a group of people isolated from the outside world and one by one revealing their secrets... and one by one dying. Can you find the murderer in time?

    Alien Syndrome
    Publisher: Sega
    Developer: Totally Games
    Genre: Action RPG
    Release Date: June, 2007
    In One Phrase: This intense shooting franchise returns with an all new action-packed game on Wii. Traverse over 15 different planets and spaceships as Aileen Harding, an Earth Command Trooper, with an arsenal of over 20 unique interesting weapons. Fans of the original on the Mega Drive, rejoice!

    Animal Crossing
    Publisher: Nintendo
    Developer: Nintendo
    Genre: Life Simulation
    Release Date: 2007
    In One Phrase: The now eponymous Animal Crossing series will emerge a-new in an exciting Wii version. With online connectivity and massive communities to be a part of this will become a great thing for the series. And of course, the crazy characters will be ever present. Don’t we all just love to hate Tom Nook!?

    The Ant Bully
    Publisher: Midway Games
    Developer: Artificial Mind and Movement
    Genre: Action
    Release Date: Out Now
    In One Phrase: Based on the movie of the same name by Warner Bros., this game follows the adventures of Lucas who, after bullying an ant colony gets shrunk down to size to meet the ants. Can you save the ants and yourself from the fearsome pest control?

    Anubis II
    Publisher: Metro 3D
    Developer: Data Design Interactive
    Genre: Adventure
    Release Date: 2007 (PAL Regions Only)
    In One Phrase: Long ago the evil "Mumm'hotep" plunged the land of Egypt into darkness. Now, he's back and the Gods have called upon the only warrior who can defeat him: Anubis. Could this be an action-packed, mummification romp? Time will tell.

    Avatar: The Last Airbender
    Publisher: THQ
    Developer: THQ Studio Australia
    Genre: Action Adventure
    Release Date: Out Now
    In One Phrase: Based on the popular Nickelodeon show, gamers will play as the unstoppable kung-fu team as they battle their way throughout the Avatar universe. While the game is never going to particularly great it received middling reviews from critics. It is, after all, fun to swing a stick with your Wii controller.

    B


    Baja Destruction
    Publisher: Conspiracy Entertainment
    Developer: Conspiracy Entertainment
    Genre: Racing
    Release Date: 2007
    In One Phrase: Paired with Baja Mania, this game is the more serious one with proper(ish) cars and terrains. Despite being a semi-port of a PS2 game, it will still have fully functional Wii controls.

    Baja Mania
    Publisher: Conspiracy Entertainment
    Developer: Conspiracy Entertainment
    Genre: Racing
    Release Date: 2007
    In One Phrase: Paired with Baja Destruction, this game is the more silly one. With massive dune buggies and amusing three-wheeled cars this game fully takes advantage of Wii controls, despite being primarily a PS2 port.

    Barnyard
    Publisher: THQ
    Developer: Blue Tongue Entertainment
    Genre: Adventure
    Release Date: Out Now
    In One Phrase: Based on the movie by Paramount Pictures and Nickelodeon about how barnyard animals really act when humans are not around. It's a game where you play as a cow and get text messages; what more could you want?!

    Battalion Wars 2
    Publisher: Nintendo
    Developer: Kuju Entertainment
    Genre: Strategy Action
    Release Date: 2007
    In One Phrase: Being officially dubbed as BWii2, this is the sequel to the overlooked yet sublime Gamecube game. This time round though, things really heat up as players now get to battle each other online. Are you ready to fight a war?

    Big Brain Academy, Wii Degree
    Publisher: Nintendo
    Developer: Nintendo
    Genre: Puzzle
    Release Date: June 11th, 2007
    In One Phrase: A "rethinking" (or should that be Wii-thinking?) of the DS series that caused a sensation throughout the world. With a multiplayer slant, this is a combination of a party game and a way to build up your brain muscles. Find out who really has the highest IQ amongst your friends.

    The Bigs
    Publisher: 2K Sports
    Developer: Blue Castle Games / Visual Concepts
    Genre: Sport
    Release Date: June, 2007
    In One Phrase: Big things are expected for this baseball game. It is set around Major League Baseball yet has exaggerated visuals and physics for a more unique slant on your average sport licence. Oh yeah, and did I mention online support?

    Billy the Wizard: Rocket Broomstick Racing
    Publisher: Metro 3D
    Developer: Data Design Interactive
    Genre: Racing
    Release Date: 2007 (PAL Regions Only)
    In One Phrase: So, you're a wizard. And what to all Potter-respecting wizards do? They fly on broomsticks. In a racing game with a unique twist, players must fly around on broomsticks and take on massive dragons. Can you conquer the skies broomstick-style?

    Bionicle Heroes
    Publisher: Eidos Interactive
    Developer: TT Games
    Genre: Action
    Release Date: June, 2007
    In One Phrase: This game hurts your spellchecker, with hundreds of complicated Bionicle-specified names. It’s the same old Bionicle stuff but this time on the Wii. This game won’t win any awards but if you’re a fan of the hardcore LEGO franchise than you know that you want this game.

    Blazing Angels: Squadrons of WWII
    Publisher: Ubisoft
    Developer: Ubisoft Romania
    Genre: Flight Action
    Release Date: Out Now
    In One Phrase: Experience the most famous battles and moments of World War II in this flight action game that really does take to the skies. The choice of over 35 authentic aircraft certainly helps make this game reasonably popular.

    Bleach Wii
    Publisher: Sega
    Developer: Polygon Magic
    Genre: Fighting
    Release Date: Out Now (Japan Only)
    In One Phrase: The full Japanese name is not one I care to type out right now! This is a popular franchise based on a popular Japanese manga and anime series. If you’re a fan then I wouldn’t hold your breath for a release for USA or PAL.

    Blitz: The League
    Publisher: Midway Games
    Developer: Midway Games
    Genre: Sport
    Release Date: 2007
    In One Phrase: Heavily delayed, and with its fair share of controversy (being banned from release in Australia) this game has probably been forgotten by most. It is a gritty look at the world of American Football both on and off the pitch. Discover the social pressures and difficulties that professional sportsmen experience!

    Bomberman Land Wii
    Publisher: Hudson Soft
    Developer: Hudson Soft
    Genre: Minigames
    Release Date: Out Now (Japan Only)
    In One Phrase: Bomberman goes far from his roots as instead of the superb multiplayer wonder of his usual games, we experience a run-of-the-mill party game. As a result, this is unlikely to ever see a release in the west but if you’re a real fan you could always import it.

    Boogie
    Publisher: Electronic Arts
    Developer: EA Montreal
    Genre: Dance
    Release Date: 2007
    In One Phrase: Now this is more like it, EA! A unique music rhythm game that has some of the best character design I have ever seen! Not only is it all about rhythm but there will also be karaoke and customisation features which will allow the player to innovatively create their own music videos.

    Brothers in Arms: Double Time
    Publisher: Ubisoft
    Developer: Gearbox Software
    Genre: Fall/Autumn, 2007
    Release Date: First-Person Shooter
    In One Phrase: While consisting of parts from two previous Brothers in Arms games, this is still meant to be its own game. While we all may be getting tired of WWII shooters, this contains a much more narrative driven, twisty game. Who knows? This might just be a cut above the rest.

    Brunswick Pro Bowling
    Publisher: Crave Entertainment
    Developer: Brunswick Corporation
    Genre: Sport
    Release Date: 2007
    In One Phrase: Wii Sports proved that bowling can be something special for Wii, so with a game focussed entirely around it I’m expecting something pretty meaty. Unsurprisingly, it will be laden with Brunswick advertisements but multiplayer and career mode would make that forgivable, right?

    Bust-a-Move Bash!
    Publisher: Majesco
    Developer: Happy Happening
    Genre: Puzzle
    Release Date: Out Now
    In One Phrase: It is a little difficult to see just what else the Bust-a-Move franchise can do other than, err, popping bubbles, but maybe the Wii controller will change all that. Still, with plenty of new modes it is a bit too early to judge.

    C

    Call of Duty 3
    Publisher: Midway Games
    Developer: Treyarch
    Genre: First-Person Shooter
    Release Date: Out Now
    In One Phrase: A World War II shooter, eh? Well that’s original (yawn). Nevertheless, despite being a port from an Xbox version, this game takes full advantage of the controller and was actually the second ever first-person shooter for Wii. It’s almost like a little piece of history! Almost.

    Cars
    Publisher: THQ
    Developer: Incinerator Games / Rainbow Studios
    Genre: Racing
    Release Date: Out Now
    In One Phrase: Based on the Disney Pixar movie of the same name, this is a run-of-the-mill movie licence that admittedly isn’t bad; it just isn’t exactly good either. Do not get this game unless you’re a fan of the movie, and even then I wouldn’t properly recommend it.

    Cars Mater-National
    Publisher: THQ
    Developer: Rainbow Studios
    Genre: Racing
    Release Date: Autumn/Fall, 2007
    In One Phrase: The success of the movie-licensed game ensured a sequel. This is unlikely to get that many people excited at all because it reeks of cash-cow but maybe, just maybe this game actually won’t end up being too bad.

    Chicken Shoot + Egg Catcher
    Publisher: Zoo Digital
    Developer: Zoo Digital
    Genre: Shooter
    Release Date: May 4th, 2007
    In One Phrase: This game is all about shooting chickens and catching eggs. Or at least that’s what I’ve assumed. Bright and quirky visuals and a less-than-usual price point may just make this a rather good game, if a little unsubstantial.

    Cocoto Carnival
    Publisher: Big Ben Interactive
    Developer: Neko Entertainment
    Genre: Shooter
    Release Date: 2007 (PAL Only)
    In One Phrase: So, raise your hands if you’re going to get this game. Oh well. Basically, this is described as a shooting gallery featuring Neko’s popular character (albeit, a character I’ve never heard of) called Cocoto. It sounds more Japanese than European, but there you go...

    Code Lyoko
    Publisher: Game Factory
    Developer: Neko Entertainment
    Genre: RPG
    Release Date: 2008
    In One Phrase: This is a based on a poor-quality French animation show about four students who uncover a parallel universe called Lyoko inside a super-computer. If that wasn’t obscure enough this game is set to be an adventure RPG.

    Cooking Mama: Cook Off
    Publisher: Majesco
    Developer: Office Create
    Genre: Simulation
    Release Date: Out Now
    In One Phrase: The sequel to the DS game. This game requires you to cook a variety of different dishes using the Wii controller as your tools. It could have been so good but unfortunately unresponsive controls really wrecked the experience. It is still described as “fun” though!

    Cosmic Family
    Publisher: Ubisoft
    Developer: Ubisoft
    Genre: Early Learning
    Release Date: 2007
    In One Phrase: Woo-wee-wow! Oh. No, it’s not exciting as it sounds as the Cosmic Family is all about early learning for little kids meaning that the vast majority of the gaming community won’t exactly appreciate this. Still, there is something about nurturing seeds into plants that is vaguely appealing!

    Crash Dummy vs. the Evil D-Troit
    Publisher: Schanz International Consultants
    Developer: Twelve Interactive
    Genre: Action
    Release Date: 2007
    In One Phrase: This is a new franchise, which for some reason sounds rather good fun. Follow the adventures of Crash Dummy as he faces off against the evil D-Troit who is creating and abusing crash dummies for his own evil, personal gains. Why is that so appealing?!

    Crash of the Titans
    Publisher: SCEA
    Developer: Naughty Dog
    Genre: Platformer
    Release Date: October, 2007
    In One Phrase: Crash Bandicoot is, after many years of tiresome party and racing games, finally getting a fully-fledged platformer. The even better news is that it's for Wii! The chunky visuals aren't exactly impressive but they do have some charm something which Crash games before have lacked.

    Crayon Shin-Chan Saikyou Kazoku Kasukabe King Wii
    Publisher: Banpresto
    Developer: Banpresto
    Genre: Minigames
    Release Date: Out Now (Japan Only)
    In One Phrase: I think it’s pretty safe to say this won’t be being released this side of the world. Based on the Japanese anime of the same name, it is a minigames compilation game but with more substantial, longer minigames than normal. Intrigued? Then I’d advise you to import it rather than wait.

    D

    Dance Dance Revolution: Hottest Party
    Publisher: Konami
    Developer: Konami
    Genre: Dance
    Release Date: 2007
    In One Phrase: The immensely popular Dance Dance Revolution franchise has an added new dimension, as it's feet AND hands you have to control now! Expect a major music soundtrack including hits from the last four decades!

    Dave Mirra BMX Challenge
    Publisher: Crave Entertainment
    Developer: Crave Entertainment
    Genre: Sport
    Release Date: June, 2007
    In One Phrase: A bad game on PSP offered some hope of salvation if this game turns out to be any good. 12 environments to traverse across with a choice of 13 different bicycles, play both for tricks and racing. Anyone here a bike fan?

    Darkness
    Publisher: tba
    Developer: Crossbeam Studios
    Genre: Adventure
    Release Date: tba
    In One Phrase: It’s incredibly vital to support these games as they’re being developed by little indie studios. This one is about a world overrun by vampires where everything there is your worst nightmare... here’s hoping it will be released and be a dream to play.

    The Destiny of Zorro
    Publisher: Zorro Productions
    Developer: Pronto Games
    Genre: Action Adventure
    Release Date: October-December, 2007
    In One Phrase: Pronto Games are famed for their short but sweet games so let’s hope for a substantial but sweet game coming up here. Regardless, I think we can all expect to be slashing that “Z” symbol with your Wii controllers if we get this game.

    Dewy’s Adventure
    Publisher: Konami
    Developer: Konami
    Genre: Platformer
    Release Date: 2007
    In One Phrase: From the creators of Elebits comes this beautifully controlled game where you play Dewy, a droplet of water who can change his form with relative ease. It’s got wonderful graphics, a charming story and reeks of innovation. Good.

    Digimon
    Publisher: Namco Bandai Group
    Developer: Namco Bandai Group
    Genre: Battle
    Release Date: 2007
    In One Phrase: Those Pokémon-wannabes Digimon are to have their very own game on Wii. Anyway, while initially going in the direction of an adventurer, Namco Bandai have decided to make the game much more battle-esque. Could it be your cup of tea?

    Disaster: Day of Crisis
    Publisher: Nintendo
    Developer: Monolith Studios
    Genre: Action Simulation
    Release Date: 2007
    In One Phrase: Now this is nice! Nintendo are publishing a realistic-style game where you have to survive nature’s worst as natural disasters pummel the United States. To make matters even worse, a rogue terrorist group has taken advantage of the disasters and stolen an atomic bomb. Should be great to see what Nintendo do with this.

    Disney’s Chicken Little: Ace in Action
    Publisher: Buena Vista Games
    Developer: Avalanche Software
    Genre: Action
    Release Date: Out Now
    In One Phrase: Hmm... this is a game based on the Chicken Little movie within a movie about Chicken Little’s Hollywood alter-egos. Like I said, hmm... Nevertheless, it’s not actually that bad though I wouldn’t recommend it to anyone other than fans and infants.

    Disney’s Meet the Robinsons
    Publisher: Buena Vista Games
    Developer: Avalanche Software
    Genre: Action
    Release Date: Out Now
    In One Phrase: Well, it’s another movie licensed film so once again we have this growing video game industry problem of completely uninspiring. However, Avalanche Software are actually pretty good at making games making this effort not too bad.

    DK Bongo Blast
    Publisher: Nintendo
    Developer: Nintendo
    Genre: Racing Platformer
    Release Date: 2007
    In One Phrase: The Gamecube game that had no news for a year before “becoming” a Wii game. Who’s complaining though, because this will undoubtedly be a solid and unique game combining barrel-racing, rhythm and platforming elements. What more could you want?

    The Dog Island
    Publisher: Yuke’s Media Creations
    Developer: Yuke’s Media Creations
    Genre: Adventure
    Release Date: April 26th, 2007 (Japan)
    In One Phrase: Set apart from other by games by its quirky clay-visuals, this game is all about a family of dogs who inevitably, after a series of events, end up having an adventure on an island. Don’t ask me if this will ever see the light of day in the west.

    Donkey Kong
    Publisher: Nintendo
    Developer: Nintendo
    Genre: Platformer
    Release Date: 2007
    In One Phrase: Let me make this clear... the amount of info we know about this game is this: it exists. Other than that, Nintendo are keeping their mouths firmly shut. Could it be a re-working of the original Donkey Kong, or a more rhythm based game? Only time will tell.

    Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi 2 (Dragon Ball Z Sparking! NEO in Japan)
    Publisher: Atari (US and Europe), Bandai Namco (Japan)
    Developer: Spike
    Genre: Fighting
    Release Date: Out Now
    In One Phrase: This is the latest game in the cult-following series. It has absolutely superb anime-style visuals along with the claim to fame that it's one of the most exhausting games out there. This is a worthy game in the fighting series.

    Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi 2 (Dragon Ball Z Sparking! METEOR in Japan)
    Publisher: Atari (US and Europe), Bandai Namco (Japan)
    Developer: Spike
    Genre: Fighting
    Release Date: October 13th, 2007 (Japan)/November 13th, 2007 (US)/Winter 2007 (Europe)
    In One Phrase: This is the upcoming game in the cult-following series. It has absolutely superb anime-style visuals along with the claim to fame that it's one of the most exhausting games out there. Unlike any other Dragon Ball Z game, it will include online game play, making it the online Fighting game for the Wii.

    Dragon Quest Swords: The Masked Queen and the Tower of Terrors
    Publisher: Square Enix
    Developer: Square Enix
    Genre: Action
    Release Date: July 12th, 2007 (Japan)
    In One Phrase: Despite not being a true RPG of the series, this game will still sell like hot cakes over in the land of the rising sun. It’s an on-rails thing where you roll around and come into contact with enemies which you have to fend off with your trusty Wii controller. The verdict’s out on this one.

    Driver: Parallel Lines
    Publisher: Ubisoft
    Developer: Reflections Interactive
    Genre: Action
    Release Date: Summer 2007
    In One Phrase: The series may have met its downfall with DRIV3R but maybe a Wii game will offer some salvation. In this one you play an artist who was framed for a murder he didn’t commit and put in prison for thirty years. Now he’s out, and all he wants... is revenge. Dun dun durr!

    E

    Earache Extreme Metal Racing
    Publisher: Metro 3D
    Developer: Data Design Interactive
    Genre: Racing
    Release Date: 2007 (PAL Regions Only)
    In One Phrase: They say there’s a game for everyone... this one is a racing game that also blasts heavy metal music into your ears. Are you into that sort of thing? It’s being made in conjunction with Earache Music Company who are supplying the music.

    Elebits
    Publisher: Konami
    Developer: Konami
    Genre: Action
    Release Date: Out Now
    In One Phrase: Welcome to a world when all energy is from little creatures called Elebits. Now imagine that they’ve all gone missing? What do you have to do... find them! In a highly unique and innovative game, you play hide and seek with a ray gun. Oh, and it’s called Eledees in Europe.

    Emergency Mayhem
    Publisher: Codemasters
    Developer: Supersonic
    Genre: Action Adventure
    Release Date: June, 2007
    In One Phrase: If you’ve ever wanted to be a policeman, paramedic or fire fighter this is the game to do it in. Race around the city and save various citizens from a variety of crazy situations! Combining sandbox gameplay and quirky minigames... this has the potential to be great fun.

    Escape from Bug Island
    Publisher: Eidos Interactive
    Developer: Spike
    Genre: Survival Horror
    Release Date: May, 2007
    In One Phrase: The slightly below-average game known as Necro-Nesia in Japan is being westernised and hopefully made more accessible than the previous effort. Could a mediocre game be transformed into a terrifying survival horror that has that magic sense? Guess you’ll have to wait and see!

    Excite Truck
    Publisher: Nintendo
    Developer: Monster Games Inc.
    Genre: Racing
    Release Date: Out Now
    In One Phrase: The spiritual successor to Excitebike except with massive, great trucks. It has a great arcade-y feel but might be a little too on the shallow side for a serious gamer. If anything, this game proves that the steering wheel style needs work, but it’s still a great game!

    Eyeshield-21
    Publisher: Nintendo
    Developer: Nintendo
    Genre: Sport
    Release Date: May, 2007 (Japan Only)
    In One Phrase: Eyeshield-21 is currently Nintendo’s only franchise that wasn’t originally created by them and instead they snapped up the rights. It’s based on a Japanese manga about a geek who has a secret identity as the school team’s top American footballer. Previous efforts of this have been surprisingly good.

    F

    Fantastic 4: Rise of the Silver Surfer
    Publisher: Take-Two Interactive
    Developer: 7 Studios / Visual Concepts
    Genre: Action Adventure
    Release Date: June 2007
    In One Phrase: Based on the comic book series by Marvel, and of course the upcoming movie sequel, this game will surely be a generic movie licence. But it's on Wii, so let's give it a chance!

    Far Cry Vengeance
    Publisher: Ubisoft
    Developer: Ubisoft Montreal
    Genre: First-Person Shooter
    Release Date: Out Now
    In One Phrase: It all sounded so good: A Far Cry game for the Wii's launch, and yet it due to it's absolutely terrible graphics. Nevertheless, the game did introduce a large array of new features.

    Ferrari Challenge
    Publisher: System 3
    Developer: System 3
    Genre: Racing
    Release Date: 2007
    In One Phrase: A partnership between Ferrari and System 3 has resulted in this, specified Wii game. Race Ferraris at top speed in this game which every... err, Ferrari fan... must have!

    Final Fantasy: Crystal Chronicles -- The Crystal Bearers
    Publisher: Square Enix
    Developer: Game Designer's Studio
    Genre: RPG
    Release Date: 2007
    In One Phrase: While many people criticise Crystal Chronicles games for not fitting in with the rest of the series I beg to differ. This will be one of the best RPG's out there and hopefully one of the most rewarding.

    Final Furlong
    Publisher: Namco Bandai Group
    Developer: Namco Bandai Group
    Genre: Racing
    Release Date: 2007
    In One Phrase: A racing game but with a difference. Players control their horses by stirring them on with the Wii controller. It's already a popular series in Japan, it'd be interesting to see how it translates here.

    Fire Emblem: Goddess of Dawn
    Publisher: Nintendo
    Developer: Intelligent Systems
    Genre: Strategy RPG
    Release Date: April - June, 2007
    In One Phrase: It's the latest game in a well-established series. Hopefully, it will award the same depth and emotion that the others managed to achieve. Should control great with the Wii's controls too.

    Fishing Master or Tsuri Master
    Publisher: Hudson Soft
    Developer: Hudson Soft
    Genre: Fishing
    Release Date: Out Now (Japan)
    In One Phrase: A fishing game for the Wii which of course takes full advantage of that wonderful controller. It's more Japan-centric than anything (featuring fish only from Japan) so I wouldn't expect a Western release.

    Forever Blue
    Publisher: Nintendo
    Developer: Arika
    Genre: Adventure
    Release Date: 2007
    In One Phrase: A beautiful little game that has a unique premise. There is no aim to this game, you just merely scuba-dive throughout ocean. Even better, it's got wi-fi, so you can do it with your mates from across the world!

    Furu Furu Paka
    Publisher: Taito
    Developer: Taito
    Genre: Minigames
    Release Date: Out Now (Japan)
    In One Phrase: I highly doubt that this game will ever see the light of day over in this side of the world. It's a minigame compilation, getting you to do anything from making sushi to skate boarding. Whacky fun!

    The Godfather: Blackhand Edition

    In One Phrase: The Gundam series has always been a very inaccessible series, making this quite a nice exception. The trouble is, it’s all rather shallow and not really worth importing. Oh well…

    Shrek the Third
    Publisher: Activision
    Developer: Shaba Games
    Genre: Adventure
    Release Date: Summer, 2007
    In One Phrase: Sure, movie licences are rarely good but when they’re based on such good movie trilogies!!! Play as Shrek, Fiona, Donkey, Puss-in-Boots and more in this game based on the third Shrek movie.

    The Simpsons Game*
    Publisher: Electronic Arts
    Developer: EA Redwood Shores
    Genre: Action
    Release Date: Summer, 2007
    In One Phrase: Based on the Simpson movie (woohoo!) this game sets out to encapsulate the wonders of Springfield rather than bore-ify it. My inner Simpsons-fan is pleading for this to be excellent.

    Snoopy vs. The Red Baron
    Publisher: Namco Bandai Group
    Developer: Namco Bandai Group
    Genre: Flight Simulation
    Release Date: 2007
    In One Phrase: In one of the oddest cartoon-licensed games ever, Snoopy takes to the skies in order to combat the Red Baron. I wonder how this will control…

    Sonic and the Secret Rings
    Publisher: Sega
    Developer: Sega
    Genre: Action
    Release Date: Out Now
    In One Phrase: Its been hailed as Sonic’s return to form which is absolutely fantastic. While the game didn't quite reach those levels of brilliance that those 2D games of old did, it is still a fast-paced Sonic super-run (which is great!)

    Space Station Tycoon
    Publisher: Namco Bandai
    Developer: Wahoo Group
    Genre: Simluation
    Release Date: Summer, 2007
    In One Phrase: The unpatented Tycoon series continues as things get... well... spacey! The complete control from previous Tycoon games is offered from a unique new sci-fi, cartoony perspective. Its been in development for years but the developers say that the Wii just opened everything up for all their ideas.

    Spelling Spree
    Publisher: Ubisoft
    Developer: Ubisoft
    Genre: Educational
    Release Date: 2007
    In One Phrase: Learn how to spell in this fun, educational package from Ubisoft. I’m guessing that this is for the younger ones… in less you don’t know how to spell “cat”.

    Spiderman 3
    Publisher: Activision
    Developer: Activision
    Genre: Action Adventure
    Release Date: Summer, 2007
    In One Phrase: A Wii-unique version is expected in this game based on the upcoming Spiderman movie where Spidey slowly starts to turn evil in his quest for revenge. Spiderman 2 was great, here’s hoping 3 does the same thing.

    Splinter Cell: Double Agent
    Publisher: Ubisoft
    Developer: Ubisoft Montreal
    Genre: Action Stealth
    Release Date: Out Now
    In One Phrase: Stealth just got a little bit harder as Sam has to balance precariously between good and bad. Ugly for a Wii game yet still full of that gruff charm… this game is worthy of the Splinter Cell series.

    SpongeBob Squarepants: Creature from the Krusty Krab
    Publisher: THQ
    Developer: Blitz Games
    Genre: Platformer
    Release Date: Out Now
    In One Phrase: Everyone loves SpongeBob right? So what better way to celebrate the underwater craziness by combining platforming and crazy minigames. Could have been executed much, much better…

    SSX Blur
    Publisher: Electronic Arts
    Developer: EA Canada
    Genre: Sport
    Release Date: Out Now
    In One Phrase: The best, most organic SSX yet. This superb game could be just what you need to pull off amazing stunts and gaze gloriously at snow! Brilliant! Brilliant! And super brilliant!

    Super FruitFall
    Publisher: System 3
    Developer: System 3
    Genre: Puzzle
    Release Date: Out Now
    In One Phrase: A truly, truly awful puzzle game about making fruit fall. There’s a better flash version on the internet, for goodness’ sake. Stay well clear of what is currently the worst game on Wii.

    Super Mario Galaxy
    Publisher: Nintendo
    Developer: Nintendo
    Genre: Platformer Adventure
    Release Date: 2007
    In One Phrase: Now really, does this game need an introduction? I certainly don’t think so! It’s Mario and at his very best… taking the ultimate leap into outer space. Traverse across planets in absolutely brilliant style! Woo!!!!

    Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz
    Publisher: Sega
    Developer: Sega
    Genre: Platformer
    Release Date: Out Now
    In One Phrase: What better thing can you do than put a monkey in a ball and start rolling it around? The fantastic series is made even more fantastic with Wii-sensitive controls, boss fights and a life-saving new jump ability. Superb.

    Super Paper Mario
    Publisher: Nintendo
    Developer: Intelligent Systems
    Genre: RPG Platformer
    Release Date: April 9th, 2007
    In One Phrase: The great Paper Mario series continues into a more platforming style. Play as Mario, Peach and Bowser as you travel along the 2D, yet 3D-transforming world.

    Super Smash Bros. Brawl
    Publisher: Nintendo
    Developer: Sora
    Genre: Fighting
    Release Date: 2007
    In One Phrase: The eponymous fighting series that combines all Mario characters returns on the Wii… and looks set to be one of the best games ever. With 3rd party characters now also present, and hundreds of new features… this game will be a must-have.

    Super Swing Golf (Pangya)
    Publisher: Tecmo
    Developer: Tecmo
    Genre: Sport
    Release Date: Out Now
    In One Phrase: Tecmo have gone and created a cutesy, yet tough-as-nails golf game for Wii. This game is highly addictive and could really attract all those non-gamers around you.

    Sword of Legendia
    Publisher: Namco Bandai
    Developer: Namco Bandai
    Genre: RPG
    Release Date: 2007
    In One Phrase: The series continues with a new iteration on Wii. While very little is known about this game, expect a truly epic RPG with loads of neat features to really eat up your time!

    T

    Tamagotchi’s Sparkling President or Tamagotchi no Pika Pika Daityouryou!
    Publisher: Namco Bandai Group
    Developer: Namco Bandai Group
    Genre: Minigames
    Release Date: Out Now (Japan)
    In One Phrase: Tamagotchi takes a new turn towards this board game style set-up in which the winner is able to become president. Yes, it’s very different to anything Tamagotchi we’ve known before but will it be good?

    Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
    Publisher: Ubisoft
    Developer: Ubisoft Montreal
    Genre: Action
    Release Date: March 13th, 2007
    In One Phrase: Based on the upcoming blockbuster movie, this game looks set to transform the TMNT franchise. Yeah, sure, it’s a movie licence, but you never know… it might end up being good!

    Tennis Masters
    Publisher: System 3 Arcade Software
    Developer: System 3 Arcade Software
    Genre: Sport
    Release Date: March 30th, 2007
    In One Phrase: It will be interesting to see how a game based entirely on tennis rather than four other sports as well fares against the in-the-box brilliance of Wii Sports. Give this one a chance… for now.

    Thorn
    Publisher: Unknown
    Developer: Crossbeam Entertainment
    Genre: Action
    Release Date: Unknown
    In One Phrase: The indie developer’s cyber-punk futuristic game shows the dark side of humanity. You have been framed for a murder on a dark planet and you become increasingly aware of the human corruption all around you…

    Tiger Woods PGA Tour 2007
    Publisher: Electronic Arts
    Developer: EA Redwood Shores
    Genre: Sport
    Release Date: April, 2007
    In One Phrase: While the graphics are nothing to gloat about, the controls will be attracting non-gamers like moths to a light. “Apparently”, there’s a really good golfer called Tiger Woods and that’s what the game’s about!

    TNA iMPACT!
    Publisher: Midway Games
    Developer: Midway Games
    Genre: Fighting
    Release Date: 2007
    In One Phrase: Step into the six-side wrestling ring based on the popular Spike TV show as you try and takedown all your opponents. With Wii controls, this could never be funkier!

    Tony Hawk‘s Downhill Jam
    Publisher: Activision
    Developer: Toys For Bob
    Genre: Sport
    Release Date: Out Now
    In One Phrase: A depressingly shallow game that doesn’t really properly take advantage of what it could have been. It’s essentially reduced to a racing game where you skate downhill. Would have preferred something more…

    Totally Spies!
    Publisher: Ubisoft
    Developer: OUAT Entertainment
    Genre: Action
    Release Date: 2008
    In One Phrase: Currently only penned for PAL regions, this game based on the kid's cartoon TV show about three teenage spy girls who inadvertantly make it their mission to save the world. I suppose the Wii is for all audiences.

    Trauma Center: Second Opinion
    Publisher: Atlus Software
    Developer: Atlus Software
    Genre: Simulation
    Release Date: Out Now
    In One Phrase: While more of an update than a sequel to the excellent DS game, this tough-as-nails simulation really does make you feel like a doctor. Wii controls really make this a super-duper package!

    Treasure Island Z
    Publisher: Capcom
    Developer: Capcom
    Genre: Adventure
    Release Date: 2007
    In One Phrase: You play as Zack, a cute little pirate fella who's out to solve puzzles on a mysterious island to uncover the legendary pirate's gold of Barbaros. With bright, cartoony visuals and a nice slower-paced sort of play this might just be what you need for your Wii!

    Turn IT Around!!
    Publisher: Taito
    Developer: Taito
    Genre: Learning
    Release Date: 2007
    In One Phrase: Now this is odd… it’s a game on the Wii to help you with your IT skills. Well, I suppose the Wii truly is becoming a console for hardcore gamer and non-gamers alike!

    V

    Victorious Boxers: The Fighting Revolution
    Publisher: AQ Interactive
    Developer: Grand Prix / Cavia
    Genre: Fighting
    Release Date: June 30th, 2007 (Japan)
    In One Phrase: Based on a popular Japanese manga, expect craziness galore in this fully Wii-controlled boxing game with comical twists. This could turn out to be quite the work out scheme with absolutely exhausting controls.

    VeggieTales: Larry Boy and the Bad Apple
    Publisher: Crave Entertainment
    Developer: Crave Entertainment
    Genre: Action
    Release Date: Late 2007
    In One Phrase: Now this is absolutely fantastic. Not only is it a game based on vegetables, it’s a vegetable game based around bible stories! Why is that so mysteriously appealing?


    W

    Wario Ware: Smooth Moves
    Publisher: Nintendo
    Developer: Nintendo
    Genre: Minigames
    Release Date: Out Now
    In One Phrase: Wario’s wackiness continues in the Wii iteration of his Ware series. Drink water! Skip! Stop people from stealing oranges! This fantastic, yet crazy game takes full advantage of your Wii!

    Wii Health Pack
    Publisher: Nintendo
    Developer: Nintendo
    Genre: Simulation
    Release Date: 2007
    In One Phrase: What Wii Sports is to sports, Wii Health Pack will be to, well, health. The "Wii ..." continues by diving into a hospital. Nobody knows what to expect from this one but we're maybe looking forward to dentistry, surgery or even gynaecology (the last one's unlikely)!

    Wii Music
    Publisher: Nintendo
    Developer: Nintendo
    Genre: Music
    Release Date: 2007
    In One Phrase: Although very little is currently known right now, this game is essentially what Wii Sports is to sports, Wii Music is to music. Expect rhythm games, conducting orchestras and… ooh… I don’t know… drumming!

    Wii Play
    Publisher: Nintendo
    Developer: Nintendo
    Genre: Minigames
    Release Date: Out Now
    In One Phrase: Hah! The UK got this first! Buyable with a separate Wii controller, this game focuses on lots of 2-player Wii challenges that are excellent fun to play, if a little shallow.

    Wii Sports
    Publisher: Nintendo
    Developer: Nintendo
    Genre: Sport
    Release Date: Out Now
    In One Phrase: This game comes in the box with your Wii, and my, my… it’s amazing. Get all your non-gamer friends and family into games by letting them swing like a tennis racket, hit like a baseball bat and even punch like a boxer. Nintendo’s ethic entirely. Fantastic.

    Wing Island
    Publisher: Hudson Soft
    Developer: Hudson Soft
    Genre: Flight Simulation
    Release Date: Out Now (Japan
    In One Phrase: A depressingly dull flight game in which birds fly the planes… Why? Although it’s got great Wii controls, when all you have to do is hit balloons, the thrill is certainly taken out of the flying.

    World Championship Poker: Featuring Howard Lederer “All In”
    Publisher: Crave Entertainment
    Developer: Point of View
    Genre: Card
    Release Date: 2007
    In One Phrase: A poker game that features all the, erm… well-known stars of poker. But with a prospect of an excellent career mode and tournaments where you can make enemies, this could turn out to be quite a good poker game!

    World Series of Poker: Tournament of Champions “2007 Edition“
    Publisher: Activision
    Developer: Left Field Productions
    Genre: Card
    Release Date: Out Now
    In One Phrase: This is "no frills" career poker. A poker game on Wii made pathetic by the lack of online which the series is known for. Statistics-driven and dull, slow games make this not your best option for a Wii game.

    WWE Wii
    Publisher: THQ
    Developer: THQ
    Genre: Fighting
    Release Date: Late 2007
    In One Phrase: Yep, that’s right. WWE, on the Wii. While no one’s sure whether this will be part of the Smackdown series, what we do know is that it will use excellent Wii controls and unique new features. Yay!

    Default Wii Sports

    Wii Sports
    ^^^ URL Link to IGN Page ^^^
    Publisher: Nintendo
    Developer: Nintendo
    Genre: Sport
    Release Date: Out Now
    In One Phrase: This game comes in the box with your Wii, and my, my… it’s amazing. Get all your non-gamer friends and family into games by letting them swing like a tennis racket, hit like a baseball bat and even punch like a boxer. Nintendo’s ethic entirely. Fantastic.



    Personally, I think the game looks brilliant.

    Well... when I say "looks", I mean the term lightly. To be honest it looks awful. Smooth textures, bright, fairly nice eye-candy: But nothing breath-taking. You could almost (but not quite) squash it on to a DS card. But, now really, that's not what this game is about... It's gameplay over graphics, after all and in pure "Nintendo Motto": playing = believing.

    The premise is simple. Wii Sports is a game with a series of sports games all packed in. We have Tennis, Baseball, Golf, Bowling and Boxing. These basic games aren't controlled by buttons, though. Oh-no. These games are controlled by the Wii motion-sensing controller.

    For Tennis, you have to swing the Wii-controller like you would a tennis racket; for Golf, you have to putt or swing the Wii-controller like you would swing a golf stick; for Baseball you have to smash the ball with the club with the Wii-controller or motion-throw the ball with the Wii-controller; for bowling, you make a bowling motion with your arm with the Wii-controller; for boxing, the nunchuck becomes your left hand, while the Wii-controller becomes your right for real actual punching! It sounds like the simplest, most obvious idea in the world but every single person that has played this game say it is also the most fluid, intuitive and inspired experience that games have ever offered.


    You could argue that this game really does show off the wonders of the Wii and because of this, everyone should get a chance to play it... And you will! Because in every single Wii console purchased, Wii Sports will come packaged with it (except in Japan). If you get a Wii, you get Wii Sports and you will discover the wonders of it all.

    This game truly is the beginning of the Wii.


    An example of how the control input works.

    Trivia
    - Boxing and Bowling were not going to be in the original package but Shigeru Miyamoto suggested that they spread the game to appeal to more audiences. Two other possible sports that they might have included was fencing and canoeing.
    - All nine holes in the golf section are actually modern updates of the nine holes in the ancient Golf game on the NES. This game was developed by the now president of Nintendo: Satoru Iwata!
    - In bowling, whenever you zoom in closer to get a better look at the pins, the sound you hear is actually recycled from the sound in Super Mario 64 whenever you readjust your camera position.
    - There's a secret in the Training Bowling game (the one with the increasing number of pins). If you manage to roll the ball along the top of the barrier all the way down to the end then there will be a massive explosion and all the pins will drop down. It's incredibly difficult to pull off though.
    - Rumours of added stuff appearing through the WiiConnect24 are extremely likely to be true. This could be anything from online modes to new sports!

    Challenges
    - What's the highest score you can get in the Tennis Training game, Target Practice? The highest I've known to be achieved was "28"... it's rock hard. Can you live up to the challenge?
    - How high can you get your Skill Level in any of the five sports?
    - Can you achieve the perfect game in bowling? Go on, just try too!
    - Every single hole in a golf game birdie or better... it's tricky!
    - A hole in one in golf. I've never achieved it myself, but you can't help but feel it might be a little flukey.

    Default The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess

    The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess
    ^^^ URL Link to IGN Page
    Producer: Nintendo
    Developer: Nintendo
    Genre: Action/Adventure
    In One Phrase: It's Zelda. We waited over two years for this game and it finally came out... with expert controls on the Wii. Spectacular dungeons, incredible gameplay and all those catchy da-da-da-daaas; this game really is a reason for why we're all gamers.



    The epic series continues and it looks as amazing as ever!

    Link is a young wrangler who is popular amongst his hometown of Ordon Village. But when a mysterious twilight shrouds the land of Hyrule, Link gets transformed into a wolf and plunged into the latest adventure in this great series.

    Mirrored from its Gamecube counterpart, this game features intuitive Wii controls that mean you actually slash the sword and aim your arrows. There's something so satisfying about thrashing the hell out of a big burly beast as you duel over the fields of Hyrule on horseback and so damn thrilling when a giant skeletal creature becomes alive forcing you to have to use a very exciting new weapon.

    The size of the gaming world is H.U.G.E. and when you first gaze across the crystallised Zora's Domain or gaze across the Great Bridge of Hylia and you get "that" feeling, you know something has been done right.


    The wolf controls, despite fears, are spot on and provide a welcome change of pace for the game. There's something distinctly more faster paced as you jump from tree to tree over a mysterious purple fog guided by the mysterious Midna who is probably the best character in any Zelda game ever. The jokes she'll crack, the things she'll imply, and gradually her and Link's growing fondness of one another... it all adds up into something special.

    You may have noticed how I've been rather vague in the wonderfulness of it all. That's because it's "Zelda". And "Zelda" is one of the greatest gaming experiences you can possibly have it.

    So, what are you waiting for? Go and play it!


    Trivia
    - Ironically, despite the more realistic look than previous Zelda games this is actually the most comical. You will genuinely laugh at the anti-climatic ending of one of the game's bosses or at a clown's speed of building a cannon. Want to know what I'm talking about exactly? Play the game!
    - This game was originally announced in the early summer of 2004... it came out in late 2006 on a different platform! Now that is one delayed game!
    - The dungeons are: Forest Temple, Goron Mines, Lakebed Temple, Arbeiter's Grounds, Snowpeak Ruins, Temple of Time, City in the Sky, Twilight Palace, and Hyrule Castle.
    - The main dungeon items are: Gale Boomerang, Hero's Bow, Clawshot, Spinner, Ball & Chain, Dominion Rod, Double Clawshot. Don't be confused though... there are far more items that you will find (just not within the dungeons).
    - This is the third Zelda game that Eiji Aonuma has been the director for.
    - New races include the Ooccoo (de-evolved sky people), Light Spirits, and Twili.
    - What's your favourite character? Ilia? Colin? Midna? Tobi? Renado? Telma? Rusl? Don't keep it to yourself... tell us!


    Minigames and Side-Quests
    - Rollgoal. Have a nosy in first-person in the corner of Hena's hut in the fishing hole. There's a really tough game there!
    - Cucco-Flying. Speak to the clown-guy at the top of Lake Hylia, and be prepared for some skilful cucco flying.
    - Star Game. It's in the circus tent to the east in Hyrule Castle Town. Be prepared for some hookshoting action!
    - Balloon Popping. As a wolf, speak to Plumm the annoying purple bird dude and you'll be introduced to this game. Great fun once you get the hang of it.
    - Rapid Rafting. In Upper Zora's Domain, go inside the hut and you'll be treated to this game. Blow up as many vases as possible with your bomb arrows!
    - Barrel Running. Speak to the old Goron outside of Malo's shop once you've donated 1000 rupees to the Malo Fund. It's a fun yet surprisingly tricky game.
    - Cow Herding. You can do this at any time in the whole game if you want, you have to do it a few times at the beginning of the game.
    - Cave of Ordeals. Warp the missing bridge part back to Eldin Bridge and you'll be rewarded with the entrance to the cave. Can you complete the Cave of Ordeals? Level after level of enemies...
    - Poes. Collect as all the Poe Souls and you'll be rewarded with infinite money. It's a good reward but a very tough challenge.
    - Golden Bugs. Be treated to a bigger money bag if you find two of every golden bug in Hyrule and give it to Agitha.
    It returns...
    Are you looking forward to it?

    Default Wii Play

    Wii Play
    ^^^ URL Link to IGN Page ^^^
    Publisher: Nintendo
    Developer: Nintendo
    Genre: Minigames
    Release Date: Out Now
    In One Phrase: Hah! The UK got this first! Buyable with a separate Wii controller, this game focuses on lots of 2-player Wii challenges that are excellent fun to play, if a little shallow.



    For just one extra fiver, you can experience this short but sweet experience whenever you buy an extra Wii controller. This game is hardly going to go down in history as anything special, but you will almost indefinitely hve plenty of fun and laughs either on your own or with another player.

    To be honest, with just 10 minigames, it's a shallow experience and it's unlikely this will go down in history as an amazing game. Indeed, the game itself doesn't seem to treat itself properly either, describing itself as a tutorial for your unnurtured Wii hands. Certainly more of a beginner game than anything that's going to be finding itself repeatedly in your Wii disc slot.


    And yet, for some reason, this game can become perfect. Focussing on 2-player, it's the best way to bring all your friends to the Wii for the first time. Sure they'll want to try out Wii Sports (frankly, who doesn't) but this is something different. It focuses more on pointiness than 3D actions for example and seems to slowly but surely encourage your abilities as a Wii gamer... though you still occassionally find yourself thrashed by your non-gaming pals and family members.

    The 10 Games Within the Package...
    • Shooting Range
    • Find Mii
    • Table Tennis
    • Pose Mii
    • Laser Hockey
    • Billiards
    • Fishing
    • Charge!
    • Tanks!

    Sure it's not the biggest number in the world, and they do vary in quality (Fishing is by far the worst, while you'll find yourself returning again and again to Laser Hockey, Billiards, Tanks! and Charge!) but it's an experience that is ever changing every single time you play it.

    This game is definitely worth that extra bit of money with a Wii controller!


    Secrets Within Game
    - Try poking your Miis on the start screen where you select which game you want to play. It's funniest if you poke them in the crotch!
    - A tip for Find Mii would be to make loads and loads of really distinct Miis in the Mii Channel therefore making the odd-one-outs particularly easy to find!
    - Charge! is the only game that doesn't use pointy-ness with the Wii controller to play. Instead you turn the Wii controller on its side and use it as a steering wheel.
    - Tanks! can be playable with the nunchuck analog stick or, if you don't have two nunchucks, merely with the D-Pad on the main Wii controller.
    It returns...
    Are you looking forward to it?

    I see that Spore isn't on the list, does this mean that it isn't coming out on the wii?
    My thoughts with regards to a Sound type. Comments, feedback, etc, would be appreciated.

    Take it from me, I am pretty positive that Spore will appear on Wii, just don't expect it to be appearing any time soon. I predict... Summer, 2008!

    Anyone else just really not see what else can be done to enhance a Wii version. I'm pretty positive that it might be a Virtual Console release, y'know.

    And dr00, thanks for the head's up! Hehe...

    Rayman Raving Rabbids
    ^^^ URL Link to IGN Page
    Publisher: Ubisoft
    Developer: Ubisoft Montpeiller
    Genre: Minigames
    Release Date: Out Now
    In One Phrase: The “Rabbids” have gone wild and Rayman has become their new toy. Play “over 70” minigames which vary in quality but are always surprisingly good fun. It’s no Rayman platformer but it is still good!



    Welcome to a brand new world of Rayman!

    Michael Ancel (the creator of Rayman) was so impressed with Wii's new style of control that he decided to change the direction of everyone's favourite armless hero! For no longer is Rayman a platformer-junkie; no longer is he plagued by that annoying green, advice-giving bug dude. Instead, Rayman is living his roots and becoming a party mini-game obsessive!

    Hey! Woah! Hold on! Don't be such a retro-Rayman snob. This game is still darn brilliant. The premise is simple yet funny. Rabbids (essentially extremely violent, yet extremely stupid bunnies) have taken over Rayman's world and kidnapped Rayman himself. Rather than having Rayman escape then go through a series of worlds (a la Rayman 2: The Great Escape), Rayman becomes the Rabbids' toy. They pit him against a daily series of five trials (minigames) that he must complete. The comedy within this game can at times be laugh-out-loud brilliance. Excellent...


    Unfortunately, the game is not without flaws. One cannot help but think that the Wii will be plagued with these cheap sort of minigame games. And while Rayman Raving Rabbids is certainly well thought out, a lot of the games do feel a bit chucked in their. The ones that get you pumping the nunchuck repeatedly for example are well and truly awful as you get so darn-exhausted that the challenge becomes nigh-on impossible. Some of the minigames are trial and error (such as the ice one), others have ridiculous time limits (such as the brain one, or the pick-up-super-bunnies one), while others are simply broken. (I know, let's get you to place the Wii speaker right by your ear by blasting a really loud sound out of it!) On the other end of the scale, we have truly brilliant pieces, some of which I would have loved to have seen developed into a fuller game. The dance minigame that comes every 5 trials you face is really, truly great while the on-rails first-person shooter section are amongst the best gaming moments I have ever seen.

    I suppose it would have been nice to have seen just a little bit of Rayman platforming but I suppose we will have to wait. This is Michael Ancel's practice for Wii in a sense... here's hoping for some more Rayman action in the near future for Wii!


    In-Game Stuff
    - Try hitting the radios in the first-person shooter moments for an amusing scene as well as easing up the challenge for a bit. Those bunnies sure do like dancing.
    - Come on, then, strut your stuff! What's the highest score you can get for the "Bunnies Just Want to Have Fun" dance game, second version. It's harder than the tune would imply if you want to gain perfection...
    - How far can you throw the superman rabbid from the train cart? Alternatively, how far can you swing that cow.
    - There's a very short, sweet Teensie cameo in one of the first-person sections. Did you spot it?
    - As you progress through the game, the Rabbids love you more and more. Be more and more amused as your prison cell becomes more luxuriant, your prison guard becomes your bodyguard, and the signs that start to appear in the Rabbid crowd during your trial.
    - There are plenty of "recycled" sound bites for you to listen out for from previous Rayman games. My favourite is by far the... actually, I'll wait for you to jump the skipping rope yourself.
    - What's your favourite minigame? Tell us!

    It returns...
    Are you looking forward to it?

    Wario Ware: Smooth Moves
    ^^^ URL Link to IGN Page
    Publisher: Nintendo
    Developer: Nintendo
    Genre: Minigames
    Release Date: Out Now
    In One Phrase: Wario’s wackiness continues in the Wii iteration of his Ware series. Drink water! Skip! Stop people from stealing oranges! This fantastic, yet crazy game takes full advantage of your Wii!!



    Wario, the Nintendo bad dude quite different from anything else debuted in the Game Boy game, Super Mario Land 2: Six Golden Coins. Here, he was the bad guy, who had taken over the Mushroom Kingdom so as to have his own castle. Wario's greediness grew even more apparent in Wario Land: Super Mario Land 3, where you played as Wario and your aim was to get as rich as possible!

    Nintendo certainly realised that Wario was something special, and so, after a successful career of Wario Land, Nintendo decided to do a very surprising move indeed. Something completely and utterly fresh within the gaming world.

    And now, for something completely different!

    The Wario Ware series has enthralled millions of gamers since the original Wario Ware, Inc.: Mega Microgame$ released on 2003. The premise is simple: this game throws a load of quick-fire minigames at you for you to do. They only last a couple of seconds but each one of those microgames is quirky, innovative, amusing and fun-to-do. This series takes you for a whirlwind ride and once you stop, you pause and think, "Wow! That was brilliant!"


    And, I'm glad to say that Wario Ware: Smooth Moves for Wii is still just as brilliant. Actually, no, I take that back... It's more brilliant. 'Cos this time, you have the added bonus of the Wii controller. This time you're shaking around, doing the hula, jumping up and down, dropping (!) the Wii controller, answering the phone, hitting people, deku-leaf gliding and etc, etc, you get the idea.

    Unfortunately, the multiplayer is slim, focussing entirely on pass-the-controller around ethics and unplayable until you've beaten single-player mode. It's a shame, as three or four people diving around a room crazily really would have made this game absolutely fantastic.

    Instead, it just remains very fantastic, and absolutely innovative. This game well and truly adds to the Wario Ware formula and that is a very good thing. A must-have for Wii, if merely to see a friend looking like a very, very silly person (WARNING! This game is not for the easily embarassed, the things you have to do are insanely stupid!) It's a Wii, a-Wario! Hahaha!

    It's now looking pretty likely that Guitar Hero 2 will be making it's way to Wii. Unfortunately it was not a confirmation just a slip of the tongue by a PR person. Like Spore, it might also refer to a DS version. Here's hoping for a Wii version though!

    i totally tought it was an official confirmation, but i did a search and this is what i found:

    February 8, 2007 - Yesterday, Activision held a conference call wherein it reported its preliminary financial results for Q3 2007, as well as its expectations for fiscal 2008. Two weeks prior to this, the company had reported that it expected to take in $170 million in revenue during the fourth quarter of this fiscal year. Yesterday, Activision increased this prediction to $200 million.

    Amidst a whole lot of self-congratulations, Activision CEO Thomas Tippl hinted that a heretofore unannounced Guitar Hero title would be heading to the Wii. While, Tippl didn't directly announce any particular games, he did say that Activision planned on doubling its "offerings on the DS and the Wii, including Spider-Man, Shrek, Transformers, and Guitar Hero."

    Tippl tried his utmost to skirt around providing any specific details for any of these games, but he did reiterate the fact that Activision's development efforts are being divided equally among all of the next-gen consoles. He claimed that Activision has 60 titles planned for fiscal 2008. If those games are divided evenly across all platforms, then there should be a whole lot of Wii and DS love in the next year.

    We contacted Activision to find out any more information about this meaty story, but didn't receive an official comment in time for publish.
    i wish they had the quote of the guitar hero hint. hopefully we'll get some confirmation soon, because this could be HUGE.

    Lots of news tidbits for you:
    • Kirby's Adventure, Kid Icarus and Ice Climber have all been released on the US Virtual Console... They're all classic games and well worth a look at. Expect UK versions soon (mind you, whatever happened to The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, that's doesn't seem to be coming for us Brits, does it?)
    • Meanwhile, Super Paper Mario has finally been announced as a Wii title and what's more has been given the release date of April 9th, it's all exciting stuff!
    • Gamecock studios has been - ahem - erected and promises to deliver all sorts of innovative games for all consoles, handhelds and PCs. Expect some lovely Wii stuff from Gamecock sometime in the future. (And indeed, a game called Hail to the Chimp does look rather lovely for a Wii-ed up release).
    • Okami is looking more and more likely to see a Wii-release. I am really, really hoping for this game, I must say.


    EDIT: NEW GAME!

    Brunswick Pro Bowling
    Publisher: Crave Entertainment
    Developer: Crave Entertainment
    Genre: Sport
    Release Date: 2007
    In One Phrase: Hoping to be a far more substantial experience than Wii Sports Bowling, Brunswick will offer plenty of different modes as well fuller controls for a bowling game than ever before. This would be a good game to get if you're a bowling fan!

    Introducing the Everybody Votes Channel! The brand new channel that allows you to compare opinions with your family, your region, your country and even your world! Wii just got a whole lot more opinionated...

    Cast Your Vote:
    This latest addition to the Wii Menu features different general poll questions for users to answer. Three questions will always be offered. These will then closed after a week and updated with new ones. When accessing the main page of the Everybody Votes Channel, users will be greeted with the current polls open and can then register their votes by clicking on their chosen one.

    Within hours of the poll closing, the latest regional results of the poll will be made available and will be displayed for each region of the relevant country. Vote ratios for each question will be displayed on the Channel using hundreds of Miis to represent the different votes.

    The previous twelve polls that a player has voted on are archived so they can check back on them after they have closed. Each time a new poll closes, if the user has voted on it, it is added to the archive and the oldest one on there is deleted.

    In addition to casting a vote, users can also predict the outcome of the poll. Every correct prediction will be added to the player's profile and used to calculate how tuned in they are with general public opinion, which is shown in the "How Tuned In Are You?" section.

    Fun For the Entire Family:
    Users are able to register a total of six different players on each Wii console using Mii data and names from the Mii Channel, meaning that each member of the household can have their own say on a poll. The Everybody Votes Channel records all of the votes cast by a player and allows them to check their opinions against those of their family using vote results as well as their "How Tuned In Are You?" results. This allows users to compare numbers of consecutive wins and overall wins versus losses recorded.

    Worldwide Polls:
    As well as providing three different sets of general poll questions each week, the "Everybody Votes Channel" also features worldwide poll questions. These are set twice a month and run for approximately two weeks, with live result updates appearing just hours after the vote closes. Miis illustrate the global vote ratio and a bar graph shows the results for each different country globally. Players can sort these results by vote percentage, country or in order of prediction accuracy.

    Have Your Say:
    An additional feature of this channel is the "Suggest a Question" section, which allows players to suggest a poll topic they would like to see on the service. Each player is allowed to make up to one suggestion a day, the best of which may be converted into a poll question by Nintendo.

    Everybody Votes Channel is the latest addition to the Wii Menu and can be downloaded for free from the Wii Shop Channel.
    It returns...
    Are you looking forward to it?
