10 games for 10 days, must haves for Wii owners
These are 10 games that look like they could make the month of November an interesting one. Most of these dates I was unaware of until a few weeks ago, so here is a little info. for the rest of you. It’s going to be a great time trying to get to each and everyone, but that’s how it should be. Here they are by order of release date and with their respective publishers.
Shaun White Snowboarding: World Stage
November 8, 2009
Your favorite carrot-topped snowboarder is back. World stage is the sequel to Shaun White’s Snowboarding and looks like its got potential. At least someone is keeping the snow boarding games alive since there are not many choices for Wii owners.
Excitebike:World Rally (WiiWare title)
Not only did I make sure that my bike wasn’t going to overheat in the NES version, but when it made its way to the shop channel, I was reminded that you can’t hammer down on the throttle the whole time. At least this time Excitebike is getting a minor face-lift and includes some tricks.
November 9, 2009
At least Wii owners are not left in the dark any longer with this franchise. Wii MotionPlus and Wii speak enabled makes it feel a little more complete. No more just yelling at my screen.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Reflex Edition
November 10, 2009
Modern Warfare: Reflex seems to have many of us Wii fans excited, but skeptical at the same time. The screens were slim and none, and mostly 360/PS3 vids were available. There is obviously no way for this title to match the 360/PS3 empire InfinityWard has built, but, at least a taste of another good FPS for Wii fans ported by Treyarch.
Pro Evolution Soccer 2010
November 10, 2009
Whether it is Futbol or Soccer to you, PES 2010 is another multi-platformer that has made an impact for itself as an alternative to FIFA. Also, coming from referee, A.I., and player improvements should improve the over all feel of the game.
New Super Mario Brothers
November 15, 2009
You’ve seen the trailers and have played the DS New Super Mario Brothers. Or you haven’t and you are just waiting to play this multi-player side scrolling adventure. Either way, make sure you pre-order this long awaited Mario Galaxy 2 prep title.
The simulation racer that might actually have some real feel to it. From the creators that brought you the Dirt 1 & 2, from the looks of this Wii official Formula 1 racer, it looks like it could hold its own.
Chaotic Shadow Warriors
This multi-platformer may not have all of the finesse of the other consoles out there, but the Strategy/Action/TB/RPG looks to keep Wii gamers inside the action and multi-platform gamers might even set down their controllers and pick up a Wiimote and play the Wii version.
Resident Evil: Darkside Chronicles
Another staple to the franchise with, what looks like, some great features. If you played Dead Space: Extraction, the camera shakes in the RE:DC shouldn’t leave you feelin’ too sick and used to the rail/action shooter. It even boasts a few levels from more current Resident Evil titles.
Tony Hawk: Ride
The long awaited addition to the series adds a new way to play and gets your Mii characters involved. Ever since Skate it made its way to the Wii, Tony Hawk finally has some real competition. Tony Hawk’s previous titles for Wii have had moderate success turning to other developers,Page 44 Studios, but Ride should be a fun for the rest of us out there waiting to get on the almost weightless skateboard.
