Wii Sports review

Wii Sports

It's a pack-in game and everyone gets it (in North America at least), but is it any good? Would you spent $50 on it if it wasn't free? That's the question. Our answer is an enthusiastic "Most of us at CCC probably would buy it, at least after renting it for a few days to see if it was okay!" How's that for honesty? Hardcore gamers won't look beyond the gimmicky nature of the controls, but Nintendo is definitely onto something. Wii Sports is darn addicting and fun!


We didn't spend close to $300 just to play a virtual game of hide-&-seek... or did we? Konami's Elebits takes full advantage of the motion-sensing Wii-mote controls and is quite charming to play. Alone, that is. Elebits offers a multiplayer game where 4 people compete for Elebits on one screen but it's a broken mess. If you can overlook that aspect, Elebits is worthy of investigation.

Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess review

The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess

Link and Midna are going to need all the fairy luck they can get their grubby little hands on if they want to walk away with the Wii game of the year. Just look at that Excite Truck below, acting all cool and macho. It thinks its so big! We bet Link could totally take on those big, scary monster trucks and win! Henshin a go-go, baby! Whoa... totally wrong battlecry there. Sorry.

Excite Truck

Get into a monster truck and race it down roads and paths in an attempt to keep it from smashing into trees or lakes, while using special powerups to morph the landscape and cause hills too appear out of nowhere - just like in real life! Once you get your mind wrapped around the bizarre but engaging control scheme (you tilt the Wii-mote on its side and steer) you'll keep coming back for more, ummm...Excitetruckment!

Red Steel  review

Red Steel

The hero in this game must have had one of those embarrassing tough guy moments where someone said to him "Looks like you brought a knife to a gunfight, pardner" because now he carries both just in case. Red Steel was an ambitious shooter/slasher built exclusively around the Wii's control scheme - and it succeeded. Red Steel may have had some awkward moments, but last time we checked fun still wasn't against the law.
