mjordan100 commented on USA WiiWare Update: SPOGS Racing:

no online unfortunately, no mii support either. Racing was fun, graphics are not jaw dropping.. but for a wii ware title I am satisfied.. I dont own mario kart, only play it when my buddy comes over, so this will keep my over the top cartoonish racing satisfied. Power ups on track give you weapons, etc... Only raced one track, came in 3rd :( I will leave the review to the pros... but I am going to get my 10 bux worth..

mjordan100 commented on USA WiiWare Update: Gyrostarr:

in super mario's defense, I really enjoy this game, but I must say I expected it to be even better. I think part of it was the almost conspiratorial way Nintendo held this out so long, when it was announced as a launch game at one point. People figured that since the other 2 shooters that came out before it werent all that great either, they held this back to give the others a chance to sell. I have read that opinion here, and had it myself... so while it may not live up to everyones imagination run wild, it is a great game in and of itself, and If I was friends with supmar, I would wholeheartedly recommend it if you even remotely like shooters. Dont look at it through the rose colored glasses you imagined it with, look at it as if you never heard of it. and Price is less than a movie ticket for a lousy 90 minute movie.. will likely get more than 90 minutes of shooter pleasure from this

IMHO

the sideways wii remote control can be tilt or dpad... I tried both....like the dpad for now, but may just need to fine tune my tilting...

Super mario.x I like This game a lot. Just dont want to be all gung ho and making others buy what I like... being reserved about it.

and GMT is Greenwich Mean Time, kinda the world standard time..

ECM...Thanks for the input and warnings, I will look out for that choppy scrolling. I noticed none of that in the 1st bonus level, or any of the first 5 levels... Did that set in for you later, after the first5? or did you notice right off?

oh, and I agree that multiplayer would add another dimension. I have nobody here to test with me right now. so that could bump it up in my scorecard for sure.

well SuperMario.. I normally leave the reviews to the experts, but since itsa Mario asking, I will give it a stab. First I must express i have not played all that many wiiware games... was realy intent on this game and kinda protested by not buying till it came out. That being said, on my personal fun-o-meter, I give it 8.5/10 but it may grow on me. I love retro games, and my wii has geometry wars galaxies in it more than probably any of my other games, if that gives an more insight.

mjordan100 commented on USA WiiWare Update: Gyrostarr:

only thing I dont like so far, is it only has top 10 online leader boards... so I played through level 5, and dont even see what my high score was. There is no, from what I can tell, personal top score list.. so if you aint good enough to crack worldwide top 10, I guess you need a pen and paper.

But yes, for me level5 it started getting a little faster and crazier.....but I am working now... (if I keep telling myself that, I may start to do it)

Keep going Lylvia, cause temptation got the better of me. I played another level and then the bonus level was given to me.. that got crazy fast. I think that may be a sneak peak at how fast some of the later levels may get. if the game has 50 levels cant imagine what 49 and 50 would be like..

ok seriously.. I should be working...Must start working...

played first 2 levels... I definately enjoyed it. it supports remote only, remote + nunchuck or classic controller, no gamecube controller support. I work from home, so I am going to try and be good and work now.. but may play a few more levels in a bit.

I sent an e-mail to nintendo recently, and suggest you all do as well requesting this game asap. I got a reply rather quickly, but it didnt really say anything, thought I would post their reply here.

"Hi, great suggestion!

Nintendo loves hearing about the types of products that you would like to see from us in
the future. While there hasn't been an announcement concerning Gyrostarr for WiiWare, you
never know what the future holds!

In the meantime, keep checking our website's "What's New" section
(http://www.nintendo.com/whatsnew) for the latest information and announcements.

Sincerely,

Nintendo of America Inc.
