EU WiiWare Update: Mega Man 9, Strong Bad Ep 2 and Helix
Posted by Marcel van Duyn
You'd better have some Wii Points ready as there are three new games are available today, and all of them are good! All three have already been out in North America for a short time, so it can be considered somewhat of a catch-up update.
Mega Man 9 needs no introduction unless you have been living in a cave for the past few months! The game has been designed by Capcom to look, sound and play just like a NES game. That means there's 8-bit graphics, a catchy retro-esque soundtrack, and of course, a high difficulty level! Of course, as our review will tell you, this makes it every bit as addictive and good as its six 8-bit cousins. This is pretty much the ultimate fan-service. We personally hope many other developers follow Capcom's example.
Strong Badia the Free is the second episode in the Strong Bad's Cool Game for Attractive People series. It basically plays exactly the same as the first game, but has a different story which is completely unrelated to that of the first. If you liked the first episode, you'll like this - If you didn't, this isn't gonna change your mind!
Finally, today Helix is available in Europe as well. Since its US release it has gotten quite a mixed bunch of reviews - The opinions on it are certainly some of the more divided of any WiiWare title so far. We thought it was a good game - If you like rhythm games, we recommend it!
I'm gonna play nothing but Mega Man 9 for the next few days! How about you?
