Super Smash Bros Brawl

Never played any of the previous titles in the series but decided to pick up "Super Smash Bros Brawl" for the Wii because there's been another lack of good titles for the console. I had the game pre-ordered and managed to get this "Limited Edition" sleeve for the game together with a postcard of Zero Suit Samus. Pretty cool considering...


Trauma Centre: Under The Knife 2

The sequel to the first operating game "Trauma Centre: Under The Knife" on the DS is finally out. I've been anticipating this game since it was announced. It's been three years since GUILT was defeated and now Derek Stiles and Angie Thompson are in Africa, Costigar treating patients in a war-torn country as voluntary doctors. Lacking...


Dragon Quest Swords, Wiimote Shaking Fun?

Dragon Quest Swords, Square-Enix's Wiimote slashing game, has finally reached EU shores. So how does it play? Starting the game up, a festival is running and a mandatory tutorial is given about how to use the Wiimote. Afterwards, it's time to take the "Walk of the Worthy" and go on the very first sword slashing adventure. Each location...


Wii Fit, A Compelling Package for Basic Exercises

Despite watching the parody trailer and knowing how much it was going to cost, I still went ahead and pre-ordered Wii Fit and managed to slip one in on Amazon before it got pre-sold out. The demand is so high it doesn't look like the price will drop any time soon and it is a first party Nintendo title. Yesterday I received the package which...


Mario Kart Wii, A Smooth Online Experience and Fun New Tricks

Decided to pick up "Mario Kart Wii" while I was waiting for my copy of Wii Fit to arrive. Finding a copy was pretty difficult. About a week after release, there was still plenty of stock in both shops and online stores over here. However, another week later and it was pretty much sold out. Fortunately I just happened to find one store online...


Monster Hunter Portable 2nd G, New Challenges and the Felyne Buddy

I remember how I bought the first Monster Hunter game for the PSP and almost gave up after spending an hour on it because I didn't like the controls one bit. The weapons were hard to use, there was no lock on, the monsters you fought can kill you in one hit and the camera had to be adjusted manually. It was a good few months before I came back to...


Dance Dance Revolution: Hottest Party Wii Package

Ordered this from Amazon.co.uk recently. Never played any of Konami's DDR games but since I got into the rhythm games Ouendan (remade as Elite Beat Agents in the West) and DJ Max Portable so much (I hope the hints about DJMP3 are true!), I thought I would try out the DDR game that just came out for the Wii over here. Try stepping to the rhythm...


Time Hollow, 5 Hours of Amending History with a Pen

With a title like "Time Hollow: Seeking the Stolen Past (Ubawareta Kako wo Motomete)" I'm sure Konami's latest visual novel game will catch quite a bit of attention. After all, I'm sure the majority of people would be interested to know what it would be like to change the past or travel through time. The story begins the day just before...


No More Heroes, 15 Hours of Style and Wiimote Finishings

Right after the opening video you're thrown into the first main stage of the game, ready to fight your way to the first boss assassin. You're also given an optional interactive tutorial where you get a chance to learn the basic controls. Once you've worked your way through, you're pretty much left to your own devices. You can hang out at...


DBZ Budokai Tenkaichi 3, Dragon Ball History Summed Up in 8 Hours

Decided to buy "DragonBall Z Budoukai Tenkaichi 3" after hearing about the delay No More Heroes had to go through and having nothing much else to play on the Wii a few weeks ago. Launching the channel you'll hear someone reading out the entire game title in a cheezy way which doesn't give very good first impressions. However, this is...
