Wii - Dive (WiiWare)

Wii - Dive (WiiWare)
This is a platform game, of sorts. Your goal is to traverse different under sea mazes of tunnels and caves, avoiding dangerous fish and sea creatures, while looking for treasure.

Each level has a main objective. But along side these goals, you can revi…

Wii - Deep Space Extraction

Wii - Deep Space Extraction
This is an on-rails shooter that puts you in the middle of a sci-fi action movie (so to speak). There is actually quite a bit of "just sit back and watch the movie" parts to this game... more than other on-rails shooters I've played.

It's okay, for an o…

Wii - Pearl Harbor Trilogy - Red Sun Rising (WiiWare)
This is a pretty good WWII combat flight simulator, available via WiiWare. However, it is pretty tough, as you're most always (heavily) out numbered in most of the missions. The first mission is, in my opinion, one of the toughest in the entire game.

Wii - Prince of Persia: Forgotten Sands
Not too bad of a game. However, as with most 3rd person type of games, the camera angles are the most frustrating aspect.

I suppose the controls could be a little more "tighter" overall, but they're acceptable.

I suppose the best part of this game, at…

Got to hand it to Nintendo... they know how to make good games.

Who would have thought that a racing game made up of just a few lines of light could be so much fun?

Wii - Rogue Trooper

Wii - Rogue Trooper
Here's one of those "sleeper" games that are quite good but probably never heard of before.

This one is from 2007, but apparently just released on the Wii last November. You play as a genetically engineered soldier, now fighting the corrupt government t…

Wii - Moster Hunter Tri (3)
Some of the best graphics you'll ever see on the Wii.

Monster Hunter Tri is an RPG style game with incredible depth. I've been playing for at least eleven hours and have barely scratched the surface of this game.

Gaming can't get much more "hard core…

I have to applaud UbiSoft for taking such a risk with this Wii Motion Plus exclusive, and making such a high quality game. I'm impressed, to say the least.

Although I've only played for a couple hours so far, Red Steel 2 is, in my opinion, a must-have…

Wii - Spider Man Web of Shadows (pt. 1)
Picked this one up as a second hand game. Not too bad, actually. This is my first "super hero" video game for the Wii and they did a pretty good job. My only complaint is that, when attempting complicated and intense boss-battles, the use (or overuse)…

Part two of my Spidey footage. In this one, you get to see me rescue someone and swing them over to the hospital. However, I'm surprised I didn't give her whiplash on the trip. ;o)

Wii - No More Heroes 2
What can I say about NMH2... lots of blood; lots of cleavage; lots of action; lots of fun.

So far, I think it's a great sequel to the first game. It's much of the same, but faster, tighter, and better designed. Although, maybe it's a bit gratuitous wit…

Wii - No More Heroes 2
One of the more whimsical boss battles, I have to admit; when you consider the context of the rest of the game. At least, I wasn't expecting it.

When I played it again, I was able to defeat him. Your finishing move is throwing the other guy into low or…

Wii - Emergency Heroes

Wii - Emergency Heroes
In this game you drive a wide range of vehicles, in a futuristic city, as a member of a rescue team. You steer with the Wiimote, similar to Mario Kart and F1 2009.

The missions are short and are one of the following: chase, point-to-point rescue, fire f…

Wii - Williams Pinball Hall of Fame
If you like pinball games, then you'll probably like this one. Although these pinball tables are not ones I used to play in the arcades when I was younger, they are very similar.

They sound, react and "feel" almost like a real pinball table. But best o…

Wii - Elebits

Wii - Elebits
This is one of the first games we bought for the Wii. In this game, you have to collect "Elebits", which have escaped from a lab.

It's fun throwing all sorts of objects around, trying to find the hidden Elebits.

Wii - Mini Ninjas
They may be mini, but these ninjas can kick pretty serious butt.

This adventure game is actually pretty fun to play. I read both good and bad reviews about it, so I wasn't expecting too much. So I was actually quite surprised at how well it played.

As…

Wii - Formula One (aka F1) 2009
Here's a new racing game I received as a gift from my wife this holiday... Codemasters' F1 2009 racing, for the Wii.

This is the most realistic racing game I've ever played on the Wii; which is kind of difficult to get used to, after playing so much Mar…
