EU VC Releases - 18th January - 1080 Snowboarding
Posted by Marcel van Duyn
Hot on the heels of Japan, who got the game on Tuesday, Europe has gotten the next N64 game - 1080 Snowboarding! This is another "realistic" racer, similar to Wave Race 64, except that you're, of course, snowboarding instead of riding jetskis. Like the other 3 N64 racers on VC, it holds up quite well and is well worth checking out.
On the other hand, stay far away from Riot Zone. This is a rather blatant clone of Final Fight and Streets of Rage, and unfortunately for us, it's not nearly as good as either of them. Despite it being a CD game, the audio and graphics generally fail to impress, and it's not very fun to play either!
That's the 4th week in a row without 3 or more VC games - I think it's pretty safe to say now that we're not going to get more than 2 for a while, unfortunately. Check out the reviews:
1080 Snowboarding - N64 - 1000 Wii Points
Riot Zone - Turbografx-CD - 800 Wii Points
