We Sing POP 0

We Sing POP review

We Sing POP is the latest in a long running franchise on the Wii. The last edition was a rock and metal version, and was surprisingly good. This new version eliminates the guitars and tattooed men, replacing with Peter Andre. But is it actually any good? Well, yes and no. If you’re not a fan of Lady Gaga, Hanson or Village People, you’ll no doubt give this a miss. We Sing is a karaoke game, where a player uses a USB Microphone to sing in time with the song being played. Yes it’s another one of THOSE games. The tracks...

Wii Party 0

Wii Party release date

There was a big effort from Nintendo at this year’s E3 to show a good mix of core and casual titles, Wii Party looks to be Nintendo’s very own casual title for this holiday season. If you can picture in your mind a cross between Wii Sports Resort and Mario Party then you will likely be envisaging Wii Party. 13 different party game modes and 70+ minigames that can all be play with the standard Wii Remote motion controller await you in Wii Party for Wii. Rather pleasantly this isn’t just a Mario cash in; just like Wii Sports everyone...

Wacky World of Sports review

Tuna Tossing. Just look at that for a moment. Doesn’t the idea strike fear into your heart? And yet, here it is; one of the ten mini-games available on Sega’s latest crazy concoction – Wacky World of Sports for Wii. Sega have travelled the world, found the most bizarre cult and niche “sports” they could get coherently explained to them and decided to bring them to the Nintendo Wii. If you’ve ever wanted to see how far you could throw a fish and nobody ever gave you a chance, consider this your big break. You weirdo. So there’s Tuna Tossing,...

Manic Monkey Mayhem 1

Manic Monkey Mayhem review

As you have probably gathered from the name, this game features Monkey’s and a whole host of Manic Mayhem. Now unlike other Monkey based games full of mayhem, this one doesn’t just seemingly trap Monkey’s inside giant hamster balls for fun (Super Monkey Ball) and neither does it force you to battle a giant reptile King with the help of a Rhino (Donkey Kong Country). Taking inspiration from Nintendo’s motion controller, Worms and possibly even Steven Spielberg’s Boom Blox, the developers of Manic Monkey Mayhem have tried to create a fun game based around throwing bananas and coconuts. You seize...

Ninja Captains 0

Ninja Captains review

I’m not one of those fools who think the Wii is just about party games and waving your body around but I can’t deny that these types of games have been quite successful on the Nintendo Wii. Ninja Captains is a collection of 20 party style games for younger children and families. Let’s see if it can win over a 26 year old grumpy gamer such as myself in my review of Ninja Captains for Wii. If you’ve played Mario Party or Rayman Raving Rabbids you should know how a party game on the Wii plays. Instead of a deep...

Lets Tap review

Now I knew when I bought my Wii that I was probably going to feel a bit silly to start with. As a very shy and introverted person the idea of jumping around playing Wii Tennis while my neighbours watched in fascination from across the street was a little unnerving. So nearly 3 years later it’s Sega’s time to throw a loop and brings us another unusual control method for their latest budget title; Lets Tap for Wii. Let’s find out if this new title developed by Prope; the same team that launched Let’s Catch on WiiWare have a hit...
