    While sharing the title with the new episode available for HD consoles, Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit for the Wii looks like a completely different game: simpler in many ways, but packed with a good number of events and game modes.

    Coming straight from the '90, Hurricane successfully replicates the gameplay of the first episode, coming up with an arcade game that is not really common nowadays. Not for everyone, but if you are missing the old good coin-op days, this could be a nice choice.

    Hammer of Thor is a great first entry in the Rimelands series. Thanks to its charming dice combat system and the articulated skill tree, it is without any doubt one of the most enjoyable RPGs on the App Store. However, the game greatly stumbles in its storytelling, boring and full of clichés, while the adventure is too much linear and there are very few secondary missions.

    Angry Birds has been a huge hit on the App Store, so it's pretty understandable that other developers wish to follow in its footsteps. The problem is Floop doesn't shine like Rovio Mobile's title: the controls are often inaccurate and it's less challenging, giving you the chance to complete too much levels in just a few seconds.

    Kirby's Adventure Wii is already way too easy when played alone and challenge becomes virtually non-existant when someone else joins Kirby in his quest.

    Demigod is surely fresh and innovative, but it's not a perfect game. All it's good ideas are tied up in a lot of minor flaws that keep the game out of the excellence. We are talking about a tiny single player mode, a various gameplay not always well devised and matchmaking a little bit broken.

    50 Cent: Blood on the Sand is a curious mix of two different genres. It shakes the furious shooting frenzy of Gears of War and the scoring system of the arcade shooter The Club.

    As the first episode of a brand new series, Tom Clancy's HAWX is not bad at all: the gameplay is solid, there's a good number of missions and the online multiplayer works good though its limitations are certainly noticeable.

    Dead Rising: Chop Till You Drop has little to do with the original game for Xbox 360, since the gameplay and philosophy behind it are completely different.

    Infinite Space delivers an extremely rich plot and numbers that stand out, but while playing we often had the impression that all interactive phases are a mere side dish to a sort of (slightly) interactive cartoon.

    Just as the name suggests, We Ski and Snowboard is basically We Ski with snowboards: aside from a slightly deeper control scheme and a bunch of new features, the game still suffers from a genuine lack of challenge, missing the chance to improve on its predecessor.

    Mytran Wars is a classic turn based strategy game, maybe too classic: you can't skip sequences nor move different units at once, so the action is slow paced. The graphics are completely 3D, the mechs look good enough but the colors are ugly. A good choice if you like the genre, however.

    A "hardcore game" exclusively on Wii? Spyborgs is a old-style beat'em-up with something less than Final Fight or Captain Commando, since you can't collect weapons, there are no holds and no robots to control.
