US VC Releases - 11th February - Harvest Moon

North America is playing catch-up with Europe for a change this week as Harvest Moon and Lords of Thunder hit the Wii Shop. Don't get too excited and rush to your Wii just yet though, we are being a bit naughty in breaking the news two days early! You'll have to wait until Monday to download these beauties!

The good old days of getting 3-4 new games a week on the VC may seem to be a distant memory but its hard to complain when both games are as good as this. So much so in fact that your pals here at VC Reviews awarded them both a mighty 5/5!

Harvest Moon is especially good value for money when you consider that it is so rare that you would have to part with around $100 to buy it from eBay! Its a great game worth checking out if 'The Sims' on a farm sounds like your sort of thing.

For those of you who are adrenaline junkies you might find the former a tad sedate for your tastes. Fear not! Hudson's mighty Lords of Thunder is up for grabs also. For shoot-em-up fans it doesn't get much better than this! It is one of the best examples of the shmup genre we can think of!

Check out this week's reviews:

Harvest Moon - SNES - 800 Points
Lords of Thunder - TurboGrafx-16 CD - 800 Points

PLEASE NOTE: These games will not be available to download from the North American Wii Shop Channel until 9 a.m. Pacific time on Monday 11th Feb
