Glad I could help. Are you still looking for more suggestions? Have you or your son been looking at some other games?

Not really, but he told me he enjoys fighting and racing titles. I already own FAST, so there really isn't anything left in that genre which deserves much attention. And I already own Overturn, which both of us dislike. If anything, I'll most likely be examining more niche titles like MatMM. (<:

I know I'm late to the party, but another 1080 supporter crawls out of the woodwork... me! One of my favorite Nintendo 64 games, fast and cool, with a nice mix of characters and interesting levels.
With that said, it's a bit old school with the crouching to avoid crash landing (a trick I never fully mastered until I picked it up on Virtual Console), which is really a positive for a seasoned gamer, but could be hit or miss for a newbie.

Thank you @thelastlemming, but this is the WiiWare Recommendation thread. If you want to check out the VC Recommendation thread, I've posted requests for suggestions there as well. (<:

Should I crack open MatMM, so I can become aquainted with the mechanics? Or should this title be simple enough for a 10 yr. old to pick up and play? I kind of wanted to experience it for the first time with my son. But I want him to enjoy himself and not get too frustrated, which would detour him from playing it again. He doesn't have much patience and sometimes he gives up too easily. Concerning the gameplay, I hope the fun factor outweighs any frustration due to difficulty.

Hmmm... Well, I think it would be great for you two to play the game together, but it might not be "simple enough" because of the puzzles that are introduced as time goes on. If you have your doubts, try watching a video of the first level on YouTube and see if that helps you decide if he'll be okay on his own for a while or if he'll need your help a little sooner.

Thanks @KnucklesSonic8, I'll be doing that for sure. But it's ok if the puzzles become a little difficult, I can help him solve them if there beyond his abilities. As long as the gameplay is good, he should be into this for awhile.

Glad I could help. I'm sure you'll both enjoy it!

The animations and graphical style look great in the screenshots I've seen, are they? And for 298 blocks I hope this has some length to it, that's just a hair away from being as many blocks as OoT on VC.

They are.

I personally wish the game lasted a bit longer, but it's still worth playing through. I kind of miss it, actually.

KnucklesSonic8

WiiAboutU

Why do you miss it, did you do away with your Wii? Well at least there's hidden objects you can search for, that will add a little more length in replay value. (<:

KnucklesSonic8

No, nothing like that. I still have the game. It's just, I don't have a lot of motivation to pick it up again. Aside from speed runs, of course, but I would need someone else to compare times with.

Which of these three titles would you choose to purchase first, why or why not?
1) And Yet it Moves
2) Fluidity
3) Art of Balance

I would've listed World of Goo, but it'll most likely be a must buy for me anyways.

And Yet It Moves is my favorite out of that bunch. Aside from the awesome puzzle/platformer hybrid gameplay, the art and score for the game are both top notch. Very creative game, I highly recommend.

art of balance is kinda perfectly balanced.
pun not intended.
getting to 100% in single player is a fun, relaxing experience.
light brainwork.
not too hard, but not too easy either.
not too long, but not too short either.
very polished game with shiny graphics and smooth soundtrack, just as one would expect from a shin'en game
once you'e through, there's always 2 player mode to come back to.
but, honestly, the single player mode lacks replay value... and i wish it had 1 or 2 more worlds.
8/10

need to get fluidity myself tomorrow.

and yet it moves is probably the best of the bunch, although the story mode is over way too soon.
but the gameplay is just so smooth, the controls and physics are great, the audiovisuals are whacky and get really crazy as you progress through the story (basically you just wake up in a cave, find your way into a forest, get bitten by a poisonous snake and then have a lsd trip through the jungle.)
the game has plenty of other modes, achievements, highscores, time trials, basically lots of replay value.
9/10

If you have the points go for Fluidity. In all the lacklustre releases on WiiWare this true gem has been buried. It's a superb game with puzzling, exploration and plenty of replay value. It's a great game and very absorbing and makes good use of the Wii's motion controls. The story book visuals are excellent and its surprising how much they can make you care for the well being of a pool of water!

Thanks guys, I'll take your personal reviews into consideration when purchasing my next WiiWare title. I'll most likely purchase them in this order:
1) And Yet it Moves
2) Fluidity
3) Art of Balance
(And World of Goo definitely sometime in the future.)
