  1. It’s a more enjoyable and slightly more challenging game than the first, and it’s perfectly suited to the system and to the typical Wii demographic.
  2. LostWinds: Winter of the Melodias is a great “in-between games” game. It is undoubtedly one of the best titles I’ve played for WiiWare and can hold it’s own against offerings on other consoles. The gameplay and story are a little more succinct than I’d like, but I suppose that’s the aim of downloadable games.

It is completely fresh and original and the controls are so ingenious. The game is clever from start to finish and the puzzles are balanced perfectly between difficulty and fun. The game is of reasonable length for a WiiWare game too. Graphics are very clean and beautiful to look at. Full Review »

    A great game that somehow manages to exceed the quality of the first one.
