  • Review: The Bigs (Nintendo Wii)

    The Bigs Developer: Blue Castle Games Publisher:2K Sports Genre: Arcade Baseball Release Date: 6/28/2007 I love a good Baseball game.

  • Review: Pokemon Battle Revolution (Nintendo Wii)

    (Alex’s Note: Sorry guys. No screenshots. This was supposed to go up yesterday but then I got a call and broke some really bad news to Glazer, Hatton and the rest of IP’s IWC guys. After that the site got so much traffic that the image loader still isn’t working today.) Pokemon Battle Revolution Developer: […]

  • Review: Punch-Out!! (Wii Virtual Console)

    Punch-Out!! Genre: Sports Developer: Nintendo Publisher: Nintendo Release Date: 03/30/2007 I love the Virtual Console. Some of the games available were mainstays of my childhood days. Others were fantasies of mine that stayed unattainable because it is quite hard to amass enough money to ensure a steady flow of video games when you’re not even […]

  • Review: Super Paper Mario (Nintendo Wii)

    Super Paper Mario Genre: Platformer/RPG Developer: Intelligent Systems Publisher: Nintendo Release Date: 04/09/2007 Ever since Nintendo made him drive a kart, you have seen Mario everywhere, from party games to cameos in snowboard titles. These spin-off games range from outstanding (the Mario Kart series) to boring (Mario’s Early Years?), but no one can argue about […]

  • Review: Rayman Raving Rabbids (Nintendo Wii)

    Rayman: Raving Rabids Publisher: Ubi-Soft Genre: Party Games Release Date: 11/20/2006 The Rayman series has quite a gameography at this point, starting way back in 1995 with the Atari Jaguar, PS1 and Sega Saturn. Now as a launch title for Nintendo Wii, Ubi Soft tries another Rayman party game attempt, this time making full use […]

  • Review: Excite Truck (Nintendo Wii)

    Publisher: Nintendo Genre: Off-Road Racing Release Date: 11/17/2006 After the excitement of Nintendo’s E3 game explosion subsided, suddenly Nintendo was only delivering two first party games at launch — Zelda, of course, and Excite Truck. Taking only the name from the 8-bit classic Excite Bike, Nintendo has instead created a fast paced racing game that […]

    The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess: Publisher: Nintendo Developer: Nintendo Genre: Platformer/Adventure Release Date: 11/19/2006 The Wii launch has come and gone, and now itâ┚¬â”žÂ¢s time to look back and review the title that stood out more then any other title on the Wii (or any other launch title for any system) and see if […]

  • Review: Wii Sports (Nintendo Wii)

    Wii Sports Developer: Nintendo Publisher: Nintendo Release Date: 11/19/06 System: Wii Letâ┚¬â”žÂ¢s face it. Itâ┚¬â”žÂ¢s sort of silly to review Wii Sports. If you buy a Nintendo Wii, youâ┚¬â”žÂ¢ve got a copy of Wii Sports. Maybe this will be useful for someone who is considering buying a Wii, but itâ┚¬â”žÂ¢s kind of silly really. Wii […]

  • Review: Trauma Center: Second Opinion (Nintendo Wii)

    Trauma Center: Second Opinion Developer: Atlus Publisher: Atlus Release Date: 11/19/06 System: Wii Trauma Center: Under the Knife was one of the best games of 2005. Without question, Trauma Center was a hallmark of the Nintendo DS. Itâ┚¬â”žÂ¢s easily one of the strongest reasons to own a DS. Color me surprised when Atlus announced that […]

    Tecmo Bowl Original Release Date: 02/89 Developer: Tecmo Publisher: Tecmo System: NES Seriously, do I have to explain why playing Tecmo Bowl on the Wii will be a blast? Singletary, Taylor, Payton, dude, this is football. Madden might get the hype, but Tecmo Bowl is the truth. No other sports game has captured my imagination […]
