    Manic Monkey Mayhem has managed to squeeze an awful lot into the WiiWare package. With some incredible gameplay available, the biggest problem with Manic Monkey Mayhem is that the mantra of keeping things simple has gone too far and there needs to be more tracking of scores and a revisit to the controls of the main game.

    Monster Hunter Tri is a complete triumph for the Wii. It features the best online set up of any game on the system and provides gamers with an adventure that is both deep and rewarding. Combined with the Classic Controller Pro, Monster Hunter Tri is the best deal on the system; you would be crazy to miss out.

    If you want to let your creative side loose, WarioWare D.I.Y. is a great game to do it with. Nintendo has given you, the gamer, the tools to make your own crazy micro-games, even if it takes an abundance of learning to accomplish

    Despite its ample amount of exasperating moments, Red Steel 2 is the most ambitious game to make use of the Wii Motion Plus attachment thus far. Looking past its flaws is easy when you consider how polished the overall product is—especially for a Wii game.

    It may not have the best control scheme or the most fluid combat system, but Fragile Dreams is still a beautiful, emotional, and insightful look into what defines us as humans. It pushes the boundaries of storytelling in games and is another fantastic addition to the Wii library.

    Rage of the Gladiator is challenging in a good way with 21 fights to get through.

    If you’re a Pokemon fanatic, the kind that has bought every last iteration Nintendo has released, then you’ve most likely already purchased either Heartgold/SoulSilver. However, if you’ve only dabbled in the series, it’s still highly recommended you give one of these two a try.

    If your a fan of Fatal Frame and Japanese Horror in general, you will probably like Calling. It succeeds in being scary without the shock and gore factor, but don't expect stellar gameplay.

    Deca Sports DS doesn't do enough to set itself apart, and the quality of the individual games is uneven at best. In the end your getting a really mixed bag with some good multiplayer and customization options.

    Long time fans will enjoy it, but the causal gamer won’t have much of a reason to rush out and buy this as it’s just a continuation of 9.

    For better or worse, you may want to try the game out because it has its enjoyable moments. Just be warned that kart racers already on the market like Mario Kart Wii are far superior.

    This game is fun for those that want to relive the feeling of walking into an arcade in the 80’s or 90’s. Unfortunately the number of bad games outweighs the good.

    Fans of the original wanting to know where Travis has been will want to pick this up, while people new to the Suda 51 universe would be best at a rental.

    The Wii doesn’t have many competitive multiplayer titles, but it now has one of the best in "Tatsunoko vs. Capcom: Ultimate All-Stars."

    Veteran Aces will want to check it out, while newbie’s waiting for the next big thing from Nintendo can have fun with something other than a lame on-rails shooter.

    While the difficulty does come close to being cheap at times, it’s not to the point of making you want to stop playing the game forever. If you have an extra five bucks to burn, give it a shot.

    Konami has done Wii owners a big favor with this "ReBirth" line of games, with its "Castlevania" title being the best of them all. As long as you don't mind the more straightforward progression and the absence of RPG elements, this is a highly recommended Wiiware download.

    One of the most refreshing and innovative Square Enix games in many years. While it doesn't do everything perfect, its attempts at branching out are admirable.

    I know that it is almost certain that all the Zelda fans are going to buy all the titles related to the saga. I just ask you not to make the mistake of seeing "Spirit Tracks" as just an extra portable title. "Link’s Awakening" is enough proof that these versions are worthy enough and have distinguished the series since the beginning.

    "Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles" enters a crowded genre on the Wii, a genre that has been done much better then what is presented here. Nice visuals and a stunning soundtrack can't save the huge design flaws present throughout the title, flaws that only serve to impair the gameplay and frustrate the player.

    Personally I feel the title could have benefited greatly with a little more polish, but for its target audience, the faults are far less important. If you are a parent or sibling looking for a wholesome and educational title to buy, this is your game.

    Currently it’s the only semi decent F1 racer on the market, and for those that need to fulfill that sensation of rocketing though Monte Carlo, it’s a good surrogate until a 2010 game comes out.

    Enjoying Mario in the genre that saw him born is always a great pleasure, even if you are not a fan of the platform titles. Nintendo returns to its specialty: to offer hours and hours of fun by giving us games with their own personality and a shellproof gameplay.

    I honestly can’t come up with anything truly positive to say about this game. Stay away from it. You’ll just end up being frustrated with the controls and the camera and walk away disappointed like I did. If you are looking for a classic reboot done right, try "Contra Rebirth" or "Mega Man 9" instead.

    Longtime fans of the series will appreciate how much loving care has been put into this product and, if you can find the friends, will provide countless hours of an addicting multiplayer adventure to take with you wherever you go.

    If you can enjoy a fun, arcade shooter for your DS, Modern Warfare: Mobilized is a fine choice.

    "Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Reflex" looks and runs great on a system that shouldn't be able to handle it. If you have no other options to play the game on, it comes highly recommended. It's just a shame multiplayer isn't as fully featured as it could be.

    "Excite Bike: World Rally" has great controls and is a successful upgrade to the original version. The graphics are crisp, the new controls option is easy to pick up, and it offers unlockable content and the track editor to keep players coming back.

    It’s not totally broken, but those that wish to "Starsky and Hutch" it up on the cheap will enjoy it on that merit as they pick it up amongst the unwanted "Petz" and licensed movie tie-in games, the rest of us are going for a life of crime. It’s much more interesting.
