i love the graphics. kinda a step above n64 but not too big of a step. i love late '90s/early 2000s games

Lots of censorship here...

I finally made it through the first stage. The first boss already had me stumped. I actually had to search online to figure out how to damage it.
Now I'm starting the second stage with this weird four armed dog smoking a cigar.
This game has some nutty characters in it. I like the technoish music and the game sorta reminds me of Jet force Gemini on N64.
Even kinda looks like a game from that era. I hope I'm not missing anything by never playing the original game.

Care to elaborate? While I enjoyed the first one more, I still had a blast with the second one on PC.

It's hard to take that Gamepro review seriously when he says that pointer controls don't work in most Wii shooters. Even though the review is favorable, if you're on the fence and waiting for reviews, you should wait for reviews from other sources (like NL) which aren't filled with idiotic comments like that.

Anybody who says that pointer controls don't work for Wii shooters is out of their complete mind.
Idiotic comments like that leave my mind blown... But really, most people when aiming with the wii remote just rest it on their leg/knee anyways, and it works wonderfully.

Well I'm a first time player and I'm having fun with it so far. This is pretty much the first Dreamcast game I ever played.
That system was dead so fast I never noticed when it left. The only reason I ever got to try the Sonic adventure games is because they were ported to the cube. Other than those I had no experience with Dreamcast.
Once I've played MDK 2 all the way through I'll see what I think about it then.

I downloaded this game Day 1 and it rocks! I loved the orginal 1 & 2 on the PC but I am not a PC gamer so when the Dreamcast version came out back in the day, I got that one too and loved it.

I have to say, the Wii controls work very well in this game. This is how MDK 2 should be played. I really, really hope they release MDK 1 on WiiWare. I am sad they did not do that one first because it was a great game and Wii controls would make it even better.

Who do we have to talk to make MDK 1 on WiiWare a reality?

just started level 4 today, haven't experienced a single lock-up yet. Maybe those who did have been using the quick-save button a lot as that is a new feature in this version. I only use it occasionally like in the platforming sections, mostly relying on regular saves...
Anyway just wanted to say this game still ROCKS! and I'm really loving the diversity!
SPOILER
that fish-swimming part was a cool little diversion I must say, and I love Doc's puzzles in general
END SPOILER
I also would welcome the idea of more MDK on WiiWare or similar games. Maybe we can get Nintendo Life to do an interview with the guys at Beamdog in order for this gem to get more attention, and also in order to ask for more

I just had a lock up when playing a little while ago. It was during the second stage with the Dog. I was at the part where you use the Jetpack to get up through the high shaft. I guess you better save often. You never know when it might lock up and force you to start over. They should patch it with an update. People are going to get sick of losing their progress.

You won't regret it. It's...it's...it's...fun-tastic. There. I said it.

Quicksave can only be done by pressing 1 button, right? Because I just pause and select save game.

quick save is 1, quick load is 2. Definitely reminds me of pc gaming in the 90s when I constantly had a finger on one of them

In any case, be sure to have an actual save when you exit the game as I'm not sure quick-saves carry over to your next play-through.

The question for me is:

Buy it on Wiiware for $10 with nice controls , but lack of shadows and compressed audio?

Or on my laptop (gog.com) for $5.99 with all the original features and a better visual quality?

To me, the pricing is leaning towards the PC purchase

Getting both of them would be $10 on gog.com, or I could wait for a Steam sale.
