repare to get wet as yet another N64 classic hits the Virtual Console! Wave Race 64 was one of the first games for Nintendo's 64-bit console, and it speaks volumes for the quality of the game that it's still considered one of the finest racers available. This really is the must-have download of the week.

Just in case you don't like amazing games like Wave Race, Nintendo have been kind enough to release two other titles.

Adventures of Lolo is a cute little NES title which is worth a look. It won't blow your socks off but you could certainly do a lot worse. They certainly don't make them like this anymore, which is a real shame.

Galaga '90 is one of the best versions of the game money can buy - it's just a pity that it has been released in the same week as Wave Race!

So there you have it - a pretty good week for US Wii owners, to be honest.

WaveRace 64 is the game to get this week... IDK about those other 2 games, but WaveRace will be in my VC Collection by the end of the week.

But...when Europe will get Wave Race they will only get 2 games :( Not like the US which get always 3 games including a N64 game :(

This is a surprisingly good week! I was kind of hoping it wouldn't be because I still need to get some of the other good games already on the VC.

Good lord. when is TMNT2 going to come out? what are the waiting for? With the DVD released tomorrow, you'd think they would release it for the sake of timing if nothing else. This is ridiculous.

Never played Wave Race myself, as I'm not a huge fan of watersports in general, but everyone seems to love it, so I may give it a go.

Not a bad week at all. I'm not into racers but I'll think about getting Lolo.

Well, as Vc Reviews doesn´t cover Japan, I didn´t know that Wave Race was already in Japan. Hope it goes to Europe soon.

Waverace has been altered slighty. Nothing really to worry about but since the deal with Kawasaki has long since ran out all references to it have been removed. All the adverts,logos on wetsuits, jet skis with Kawasaki on have been taken off. The Kawasaki adverts have been replaced with Wii and DS lite adverts. The original N64 adverts remain of course as they had nothing to do with the deal. This is not Nintendo's fault and was unavoidable.

Hey hang on a minute why have the US yet again got their vc games earlier. They normally have their vc games on wednesdays and us europeans on fridays. It seems yet again that the europeans are treated as 3rd class customers while the US are always first class. Come on Nintendo have some respect for those outside the US.

What the heck are you on about, BJDJ2012? The US have always got their VC games on Mondays, never Wednesdays so I don't know where you got the impression that US VC titles are released mid-week. Also, stop complaining that Europeans are treated as 3rd class... especially since we have on occasion got some top quality games before the US.

Jeez.

Yea Manaman man, For example we've got pretty much all the N64 games (with the exception of Lylat Wars) before the US, finally we are being treated right by nintendo, end your ranting of little substance!
