  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. There will come a point where you'll need to overcome some big challenges to unlock the last few stages, but by that point enough content will be available to where you'll have played more than your money's worth.
  3. Mercury Meltdown Revolution may be a port of a game in a genre the Wii already has in plentiful supply, but it’s a solid port, a good game, and at an ideal price. That adds up to a great value that’s well worth checking out.

    Regardless of its small problems and the fact that it isn't an entirely new game, Revolution is still an excellent buy for Wii puzzle fans at a welcome $20. It's the perfect price point for such a game, and the motion controls finally deliver the quintessential Mercury experience.
  5. But if you don’t already have the other versions and you love your puzzle games, especially this type, you really can’t go wrong here.
  6. 75
    Overall, Mercury Meltdown Revolution is a fun puzzle game that will probably be overlooked by many people but hopefully time will tell and this title will be loved for its ingenuity and sheer size.
  7. I buy games to explore other worlds, and the Wii seems satisfied with merely distracting me from this one. [Oct 2007, p.90]

    Played the PAL version for about a hour and it completely blows Marble and Monkey out of the water.

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. Collapse

    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 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. Expand

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