We Ski (Wii)

We Ski (Wii)

Namco invite us all to Happy Ski mountain for a spot of skiing, Wii style.

We Ski appears speedily from over the cliff face just as Nintendo release Wii Fit with the now infamous Balance Board, which can, and should, be used whilst playing We Ski. At first glance We Ski might sound like just another skiing game with bolted on Balance Board controls, this wouldn't be a fair assessment of a somewhat..

Iron Man (Wii)

Iron Man (Wii)

Iron Man? Pssht. More like Tin Can!

Iron Man is one of those games that is just mediocre in everyway. It’s not broken but instead it’s simply no fun to play. From the mundane level design to the sloppy graphics, Iron Man is playable but no fun at all. It’s almost exactly what we expect from a movie tie-in. Based on the recent movie release,...

Mario Kart Wii (Wii)

Mario Kart Wii (Wii)

The most difficult game we’ll ever have to review

Why? Simply because there are a number of angles and routes we could take to determine the final verdict. Those different routes would end up giving extremely different verdicts and so it is from this point of the review that we have to pick our destination carefully. To get straight to the point:...

SEGA Bass Fishing (Wii)

SEGA Bass Fishing (Wii)

Grab your rods boys, it's time to fish.

SEGA invite you back once again into the world of arcade rehashes, bringing one of its more bizarre titles of the 90s onto the Wii. SEGA Bass Fishing which landed on Dreamcast in 1999 was a direct port of the some-what successful arcade game of the same name. With the appealing control possibilities of Wii, it doesn't come as a surprise that SEGA have us back..

Ninja Reflex (Wii)

Wolf-san! EA invite us to join them in the secret ancient world of the Japanese Ninja.

Pro Evolution Soccer 2008 (Wii)

Pro Evolution Soccer 2008 (Wii)

Right on target, or way off the mark?

Konami's flagship Pro Evolution Soccer (Winning Eleven in other territories) series really caught the gaming world's attention with its fourth release, a beautifully playable and engrossing take on football. Since then it's become even more popular, and now rivals EA's FIFA brand in the sales stakes. However,...

Guilty Gear XX Accent Core (Wii)

Guilty Gear XX Accent Core (Wii)

Make sure you've got your Classic Controller handy for this one

Few genres possess the stubborn nature of the 2D fighter. Whereas other game types evolve over time and strive to incorporate new and innovative features that not only make them easier to play but also more enjoyable, the 2D brawler is perfectly content to remain static. But before you start to moan that we’re somehow biased against..

House of the Dead 2&3 Return (Wii)

House of the Dead 2&3 Return (Wii)

Ah House of the Dead, welcome to the Wii.

Since it's inception in back in the 90s SEGA's "House of the Dead" has arguably become the next biggest zombie series behind Capcom's infamous Resident Evil. SEGA's decision to bring the zombie-fest to the Wii comes as no real surprise since recent successful releases of other "light gun" arcade titles such as their own Ghost Squad. For..

SEGA Superstars Tennis (Wii)

SEGA Superstars Tennis (Wii)

Sega’s next sporting smash hit?

It seems his recent athletic clash with Mario has rubbed off on Sonic: here he is with fifteen friends in a brightly coloured, special move-filled variation on good old lawn tennis, not unlike the plumber’s N64, Game Boy Advance and Gamecube outings, on the surface at least. This isn’t a simple formula rip, however: this is pure Sega through and through, from..

No More Heroes (Wii)

No More Heroes (Wii)

Otaku assassin Travis Touchdown finally lands on European shores - has the wait been worthwhile?

When you fire up a game and see that the loading screen proudly proclaims that ‘Punk’s not dead’, you know you’re in for something of an unorthodox experience. The enigmatic Suda 51 and his team at Grasshopper Manufacture are arguably one of the...

Super Smash Bros. Brawl (Wii)

Super Smash Bros. Brawl (Wii)

Perhaps the greatest game of this generation? Hmm... maybe, just maybe.

Smash Bros.? What's Smash Bros.? If you are a Wii owner asking that question, you'll get many funny looks from other gamers that wonder where you have been the past ten years. Super Smash Bros. is perhaps Nintendo's most successful franchise (in terms of sales per game) in the...

Bleach: Shattered Blade (Wii)

Bleach: Shattered Blade (Wii)

Death Gods, Swords, and Lots of Hair Gel- Yes, its Bleach!

Its not very often you see a game where the main character is a bad-ass orange haired Death God- who's Japanese name, correct me if I am wrong, is 'Strawberry'- wielding a sword embedded with a soul. And its not very often that you see me create such a poor lead-in to a review. So let me cut the word-padding and go straight to part you are..

Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock (Wii)

Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock (Wii)

What an odd craze that swept the gaming world...

Guitar Hero has led the way for music games into the mainstream and has shown there's more to this genre than Dance Dance Revolution and StepMania. Harmonix, previously working with RedOctane and Activision, developed Guitar Hero for the PlayStation 2 oblivious to the incredible amount of popularity the game would receive. Guitar Hero II for both the..

Asterix at the Olympic Games (Wii)

Asterix joins the race for Olympic glory, can he and Obelix gain the gold medal?

With Beijing hosting this years summer Olympic games it was no surprise that a number of Olympic themed games have appeared on this years calendar. Atari must of been kicking themselves when SEGA released Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games, pretty much claiming all the Olympic medals in one fellow swoop. Does..

Endless Ocean (Wii)

Endless Ocean (Wii)

Does it sink or swim?

It might seem an unlikely premise for a game, but Endless Ocean fits perfectly with Nintendo’s “Touch Generations” label by being cerebral as well as entertaining and offering experiences many people dream about: floating among tropical fish in beautiful coral reefs, or bounding through the wide ocean with bottlenose...

Medal of Honor: Heroes 2 (Wii)

Lt. Berg must defeat those ever-baddies the Nazis in this latest from the Medal of Honor series.

High School Musical: Sing It! (Wii)

Disney's unstoppable High School Musical franchise may represent permission to print money, but has the toe-tapping magic of the movies been retained for this Wii release?

Resident Evil: The Umbrella Chronicles (Wii)

Umbrella have since been defeated, but how exactly did it all happen?
