The only AAA title Wii has is Zelda -- and it isn't even an exclusive because there's a GC version (no, I don't think the motion controls add much). Mario Galaxy has been vastly overrated -- a patchwork of level elements thrown together to form small, disjointed worlds. Far too easy, aside from some...

Not entirely, but mostly!

Rose-tinted specs when you compiled your lists.

The Wii's catalogue consists almost entirely of shovelware!
Surely no one likes it?

Great news about the colour, and the new series'. Not that I care about Slaine but there's sure to be other stuff I'll want.

Far too much C64 and Spectrum, and stupidly high coverage of MM and JSW -- nostalgia aside, neither are more than competent games.

The 1st game I downloaded on VC was Mario 64 - and I think thats a load of bollox. Mario Sunshine was pap. I am really trying to convince myself that Galaxy is going to be better! :? If you're going to be critical, try to be constructive. Why do you not like SM64 or SMS? At least give a reason... A...

Jack Bros is the most conspicuous gap in my collection, as it's fairly affordable.

Think there's one worth a fortune, a couple worth a few hundred quid, a couple about £50, and the rest quite cheap (£20 and below).

IMHO, best games are
<----Red Alarm
Wario Land
3D Tetris (V-Tetris is a different game)

Haven't got any of the expensive ones tho --maybe they're all gems!

Looks like the usual moody next gen style; doesn't suit BC so it's a "no, don't bother" from me.
