    Help Wanted is easily one of the more interesting mini-game collections on the Wii. Its flaws prevent it from being truly special, but the core mechanics and presentation of games make it one to watch for, especially if you enjoy any of Hudson Soft’s multiplayer/mini-games on the Wii or any other gaming platform.

    Despite a couple of unusual tweaks, Legend of Kage 2 is an unabashedly conventional action game, the kind that we don't often see anymore. Fans of the original Ninja Gaiden titles will adore this less difficult throwback.

    In the end, I appreciate the story behind the development of this port more than I appreciate the game itself. M2's attention to details and their efforts to give players an authentic experience are to be commended, but I wish the game were more deserving of the lavish care put into it.

    At the end of the day, Adventure Bar Story can be seen as filler before the next big thing hits on the Nintendo 3DS and I am totally okay with that.

    It's fairly short, the graphics aren't too flashy, but it has an irresistible charm. And it comes with a full length cartoon. You'll keep coming back to see what the next bizarre channel will be.

    An enjoyable experience, though clearly flawed in the same way its source material was flawed.

    FIFA 08 is a good rendition of a game design from a couple of generations ago that has been enhanced with a few modern tweaks, like online play and touchscreen controls. The gameplay might seem a little lacking in depth and strategy when compared to the 3D sports games most players are used to, but in terms of handheld gaming it provides a fun experience.

    The core gameplay is well crafted and the different kinds of challenges and customisation can be thoroughly explored alone, offering a sophisticated complement to the instant fun of racers such as Mario Kart DS. Ultimately, though, the competitive edge of multiplayer will likely be the driving force in keeping players coming back for more.

    I have real issues with the soccer-RPG mechanics, but once you get over the initial hump, it smoothes out a little bit.

    Despite all of the negative points to the game, the charm that made the original a favorite to many still shines through. As long as you don't start up the game expecting "Mario Kart DS," you'll get lots of fun out of Diddy Kong Racing DS.

    In the end, the only really bad thing I can say about Pyramids 2 is that it’s bland.

    If you are a shoot-em-up fan, you won’t leave this game disappointed.

    It's a cleverly designed game that could use a bit more polish.

    F1 is definitely not for everyone. I probably won't get too much more play time out of it, since Mario Kart is also on my shelf, and that's more my speed. Still, the serious racing fan will likely get a kick out of this one.

    Urban Trial Freestyle may not be the best thing you will play on your handheld, but it doesn't do many things extremely bad either.

    The strength of Goblin Commander really does lie in its control set-up.

    Legend of the Guardians took me by surprise, because it isn't often that Wii ports of movie games can present an altogether entertaining experience.

    At a glance, Princess Debut is a very easy rhythm game paired with a Story mode centered on the chasing and charming of princes. But if you choose to live in the fairy tale, its unique take on the music/rhythm genre, vibrant visuals, and lightly melodramatic storylines prove enchanting in their own right.

    Fans of the Ben 10 television show will probably get the most out of this game, but those seeking more in-depth platforming action should probably look elsewhere. While certainly enjoyable, Vilgax Attacks provides a shallow, though well-done, experience.

    The game takes a little time to get going, and some of the irritations never quite go away, but once you have a full arsenal of moves and an idea of where problematic obstacles are, 2 Fast 4 Gnomz can be a fun and challenging (and occasionally frustrating) experience.

    Fans of the sport can't do wrong to pick this up, and if you think you're a gamer that can stomach a sports game, you might do well to take a look as well.

    A satisfying platform brawler that should easily please younger gamers while providing enough action and humor to keep older gamers interested.

    The puzzle platforming design is very clever while never becoming too frustrating for the player.

    A fun platformer that ends up feeling more like Prince of Persia DS than Assassin’s Creed. That’s not necessarily a bad thing, as the DS could use more action games like this. Sadly, the adventure lasts about a weekend, and there are no real unlockables after beating the game aside from an extra difficulty mode.

    The most damaging change in the series is the overwhelming focus on ground exploration.

    An extremely short experience, clocking in at under three hours of playtime.

    I don't think of myself as a wordsmith or anything like that, but I did enjoy 3, 2, 1... Words Up! With a clear presentation and surprisingly addictive gameplay, I found myself coming back to the game once a day to see if I had improved. It's at least a great way to warm up your brain in the morning.

    Titan Attacks is a fun little title, even though the amount of content isn't anything amazing.

    Super Dodgeball Brawlers rekindles some wonderful memories of my time spent with the original game, but it doesn't offer enough new features to make it a must-have or even give it a decent degree of replayability.

    The game isn't ashamed of displaying its roots, whether they are in the form of point-and-click gameplay or 90's animation.
