  1. It's a substantial undertaking, too, with breadth as well as depth, and with a control system that demonstrates the Wiimote's capabilities more fully than its direct competitors.
  2. The game’s style and presentation stays fresh throughout. Hard to fault, as we said. One of the finest games of 2007.
  3. If playing with your balls get’s you off, Mercury Meltdown Revolution is the best way to go about it, at least, on the Wii.
  4. A very solid game in terms of pure fun. I wasn’t sure of what to expect of this amorphous blob when I was handed it, but once I logged in a few hours I found I couldn’t pull myself away.

    This is a really fun game, probably because it is unique. Because it, at its core, resembles a marble maze, the Wii-mote is perfect for it and the game really captures the feel of a blob of mecury rolling about in a maze. I've found this game a refreshing change from every other game genre. Full Review »

    Nice little game that makes a good alternative in a game library. It's a good mix between Marble Madness and also Super Monkey Ball (without the annoying Monkey sounds). If you already have the PS2 (Remix) or PSP versions, it's not worth buying Revolution because it's pretty much all the same levels. But if you don't, don't hesitate putting your hands on that one... it's a budget price, which is great for a gem like this. The only problem I have with it is that the difficulty level increases a bit too fast, but if you're willing to put some time on practicing it's worth the effort. Full Review »

    Why spend money on this, when you can get the same on PS2 for a fraction of the cost?! It's madness!
