edward1224 commented on Review: Dr. Mario Online RX (WiiWare):

I don't neccesarily agree with the reviewer. I had Dr. Mario on N64 and I really liked it. Compared to that, I love this version. I would give it an 8 or a 9. Of course as with many other games, if you liked the older versions then I think you'll like this one. You also have to gameplay modes here. In one you hold the Wii remote sideways while in the other version you point at the virus capcel to show it where to go. One bad thing about this game, though. I don't think it can be beat. I've had my screen completely filled with virus's dozen times and still didn't reach an end to the game. I get the feeling that it's like Milipede. I've heard that there's no end to that game either.

Oh, my gosh! I didn't realize this until I looked at your review but it looks almost the same as Zuma! I've been playing and addicted to Zuma as a computer game. Now I've got to download this game! I'll have to report back later on my findings. Thanks!

edward1224 commented on Review: Wild West Guns (WiiWare):

This was actually one of the first games that I downloaded awhile back and I really liked it! I would've rated it at a 7 to an 8 also. it's quite challenging without being too hard at all. In fact I wish it was a little harder and longer. I got platinum (the highest rating) on everything from normal to hard within a month's time or so. I would like to see certain games like this to be expanded on and lengthened to be released on disc form. The only thing I really don't like about it is the fact that on the third stage of each level you get a lot of enemies popping up at the same time. They are easy to pick off if you're playing with a friend but to shoot them all accuratly by yourself is quite tricky.

edward1224 commented on Review: The Incredible Maze (WiiWare):

I agree with most everyone else. This sounded like it could be a great game but instead it just sucked! Maybe it'll be better with a Motion Control Plus sensor but right now it's just lousey. I understand that there are like thirty levels but I could only reach #6. My fiancee actually got to level #11 somehow before she finally got fed up with it. I think the game was designed very poorly. It's one thing to create obsticles to keep the game interesting, but it's another thing to create ones that are virtually impossible to get past. One of the holes in level #6 was in such a position that it's almost impossible to get past it. You can't even jump over it either because you'll fall off the side of the maze. So either you fall through the hole or off the side. What's the point? I would've given it a 2 or 3 also.

edward1224 commented on Review: Fun! Fun! Minigolf (WiiWare):

I've been waiting for Nintendo to come out with mini-golf games since the 90s and even wrote to them about it. I guess I had to wait for them to become popular on computer consoles first. Well, I'm glad that they are. Now all they need to do is to come out with REALISTIC mini-golf games. As some others have said, this is more of a puzzle game than a mini-golf game. The same is true of Carnival of Games: Mini-golf as well. I actually opened everything and beat the game by renting it for three days. Once you learn how to play each hole then the replay value is almost pointless unless you're playing it with people who haven't played it yet. I was looking and hoping more for what the Wii Sports version of golf is. I've been playing it for almost a year and a half now and even have a high schore of -5! Anyway, I would've given it a rating of 5. Some of the courses are designed to restart from the original starting point and the obstructions aren't very hard to clear either.

edward1224 commented on Review: Gradius ReBirth (WiiWare):

First off, I've been a huge fan of Gradius III, yes oldschool, since it first came out in the 90's. Secondly, I have been addicted to Gradius Rebirth for a few months now. I've been greatly enjoying the game but also pretty upset over certain parts that I couldn't get past. It took a long time and a lot of playing as well as trying out different weapons but the other day I finally beat the game! I think they graded this game poorly by comparing it to other recent shooter games when it was obviously designed to be comparitive to the older versions, hence "Rebirth." I would have given it an 8 out of 10 myself. Of course, like he said, if you like the older ones, then you'll probably like this one.
I don't know if the game creators read this or not, but I do like the fact that you have more powerups available in this game, esp. after you die. I also like being able to upgrade your weapons, but...most of the upgraded weapons don't look or work much differently anyway. In addition, I don't like the fact that you have to choose your weapons by row. In Gradius III if you went to the right then you could pick individual weapons. In that way you could take your lasers from the first line, shields from the second line and missles from the third line. Lastly, I don't like how all of the multiples follow you around everywhere. In Gradius III you could chose to have them stationarily placed above and below your fighter. In that way you didn't have to risk flying into a rock to shoot an enemy. They also provided a level of shielding in the manor as well. Oh, yes, also, is there any chance of coming out with a longer version in disc format? I'm tired of having such limited space and these great downloadable games taking up so much of it. Thanks!
